if you go back and watch every offensive snap (its on the tubez) you'll see at least 1/3 of these yards come from unforced errors (blown coverage, needless over pursuit, misalignment) another 1/3 from guys who just seemed to MAKE PLAYS (broken tackles, leaping over a corner) and the last 1/3 from good play calls. You don't get kudos for the first when you don't do any line checks. I won't tear Al to shreds, this was pretty good all in all...But you can't analyze this game in a vacuum...Al has sucked hard all year long; one decent game does not overcome the eye-bleach inducing four game run we just had. It was above average for Al below for most other OCs

This is my biggest issue with MANBALL. Its not necessarily that spread is better than manball its that most manball coaches go back to the 3 yards and a cloud of dust "I know what I'm running, you know what I'm running but I'll force my will and you won't stop it."
Such a neaderthalic (yea, that's not a word, I don't think) way to play football. Guys who run the spread are more likely to build constraints into their system (or so it seems)...maybe its a generational thing?
Anyone more well versed in a functional manball team have good examples of manball with constraints built in? I can't say I'm well enough versed in playcalling theory to be able to see it myself.
I'd be okay with an offense that wears manball clothes (2TEs, I form, lots of under center) if it thought like Art Briles/Holgo/C. Kelly/RR.
Running an offense that is dependent on out-talenting your opponent is not practical anymore.

maybe I'm just cranky after that shitshow saturday afternoon but these are the fugliest most hideously awful pieces of shit ever. Worse than Clowniformz, MSU's attempt at being USF, worse than anything Maryland has ever worn. Even worse than those Gordon's fisherman NY Islander uniforms from the 90s.

He's going to be a bazillionaire, married to one of the hottest women in the world, be one of the most successful quarterbacks in the history of football...there's very limited upside to coming back and coaching (for him, anyway)
unless he REEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLLY likes 100 hour work weeks.

well yes, but the problem is with the psychic DBs if you put air under it the Safety covering you rman running a fly route on the left sideline will come all the way over the right hash and at least break up the play if its not a bullet. (if not intercept)

Have the fixed the bug where if you're in a formation that is not native to your playbook (custom playbook) and you go no-huddle you lose that formation?
Ex: I'm playing with aTm with a customized Oregon playbook and I run Shotgun TE Slot Wk and if I run a play, then go no huddle I can't get back to that same formation unless I huddle.
anyone else had this problem?

Zettel was a Michigan fan his whole life...my fiance is from WB and even his parents said they were going to be surprised if he picked anyone else...I think the 3-3-5 and the writing on the wall that Rich was not long for AA was enough to move him elsewhere.

I deeply deeply hoped that you were only joking about this post when you mentioned in our terrible commisserating on twitter.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Name me three GMs who are||
Name me three GMs who are available and better than Ken Holland. I'll wait.
Holland just flipped this roster from old and decrepit to young and fast and on the verge of exploding. I'm not sure you nderstand the nature of the NHL anymore...the Wings aren't a destination for FAs because they're one of the few franchises (like Boston and Chicago) who aren't throwing around absurdly stupid money on bad investments and 'names.' He's built a core and he's constantly looked to find complementary pieces to that core.
This isn't 1988 anymore. you can't trade all your high end talent in the system and magically replenish it in the next draft because no one has European scouts. You have to draft and develop your talent...sometimes that takes patience. Its INCREDIBLY hard to rebuild on the fly and bide time while your next wave of talent comes together. Look at the top of this league right now: Chicago and Pittsburgh...their talent came from VERY high draft picks in multiple years. they were horribad. The wings aren't prepared to do that (and they wont, they're too good in the front office). IF we're lucky...we'll see Nyquist, Frk, Ferarro, and the rest of the young talent on this team overlap with a year or two of the Datsyuk/Zetterberg/Kronwall/Howard wave of talent. Watch the next three years while Chicago and Pittsburgh struggle to not crumble to pieces because of their inability to retain 5-6 superstars....I'll trade 22 years of consistency with a shot to win it every year over 3-5 year alternating runs of good then bad.
Not to mention: you can't trade Fil at the deadline and make the playoffs. would not have happened period case closed. You really would have traded a playoff run for a 2nd-4th round pick? (you weren't getting a 1st. VAN got a 1st for their best goaltender, not their 2nd or 3rd line center).

you must not be familiar with San Jose, LA, Anaheim, Vancouver, St Louis or Phoenix.
Three of those have been the cream of the crop in the NHL the past half decade or (and two more haven't been half bad) so and all are huge and physical. The East has Boston and................
The Wings style fits very nicely in the East save Boston. And the Travel will help.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||dude, someone hook me up with||
dude, someone hook me up with the OPs dealer's number.
1. Don't sign cleary.
2. Don't sign another forward.
3. Don't sign a defensemen.
4. Do sign all of our RFAs.
5. Don't bring anyone up because we don't have the roster space.
6. Don't trade anything for Stamkos and tell your dealer you got a bad stash if you want to trade Holland for anyone.
Our D is vastly improved with another year of Seasoning for Smith, I think DeKeyser can slip into the top 4 and help keep Smith OFF the top 4 (because he's just not ready yet). DeKeyser, Ericsson, Kronwall Kindl is a nice top four and you can throw whomever you want with Smith in pairing three (or swap DeKeyser and Quincey, whichever) The thing us arm chair GMs forget to realize is that we had an almost entirely new Defense core (only the top two D were used to playing withe each other) and D is such a chemistry position...with no offseason and barely any training camp/pre-season its hard to manufacture chemistry out of thin air.
I would also like to see Bert, Sammy, and Tootoo go bye bye.
Andersson/Nyquist/(pick someone fast)
