|1 day 18 hours ago||HC should have the authority||
on who he wants to hire as his assistant coach. Keeping all of them defeats the purpose of teaching the players into the system the HC wants to run where the assistant coaches from the previous HC staff have zero idea of how to teach the players.
I remember reading some of the comments where there are some of you who were mad at RR for not keeping most of the assistant coaches. Would you want to hire an assistant coach whom you don't know and aren't sure if you can trust them to teach them the way you want them to teach.
|2 days 23 hours ago||He's most likely talking||
He's most likely talking about Dave Brandon back in the first coaching search that netted Hoke.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Hackett or the next AD||
just doesn't give a shit of what the fans want. They care about money and how they can use it to help finance the Athletic Department which they're in a business of generating revenues.
|3 days 19 hours ago||That's never going to happen||
with the business of college athletics.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Except that Cook||
is physically more talented than Cousins. Cook was projected anywhere from late 1st to mid 2nd round. Cousins got drafted at 4th round which is backup QB range.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Check Cutler's contract||
They're not cutting him until at 2017 at the earliest, but I can see them not trading or cutting Cutler because of his contract. It's an albatross.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Instant success?||
lol, have you seen the Bears defense and Cutler? They'd struggle to get to 9-10 wins next season with Harbaugh.
The Raiders has a better chance of an upward trajectory than the Bears. The Bears simply need to clean house with the exception of a few promising young players.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Actually it's Chicago||
not the Raiders. Their defense is terrible and have Cutler to deal with in terms of contract. Or New Orleans Saints with them being in cap space hell.
Raiders at least has some young nucleus with a lot of cap space plus top 5 draft pick. They have Derek Carr, Kalil Mack, Gabe Jackson, Justin Ellis, DJ Hayden, etc.
|4 days 7 hours ago||Well||
your scenario B described above is impossible. Lions clinch the playoff spot with a win over the Bears. I feel extremely confident that the Lions will win since the Bears are imploding and are fighting against each other.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Look at the rest of the QBs||
they all underperformed relative to the recruiting rankings.
Nick Saban recruited Russell and Miles wasn't there for two years when he was at LSU. I don't count JaMarcus on Miles. It's a mix between Saban and Miles.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Just win||
and Lions are in. Simple as that. With the Bears imploding spectuarly and not having Marshall for the rest of the season makes it a lot easier for the defense to defend against Jeffery and Bennett.
Lions win and GB lose next week means Lions clinch the NFCN and the #2 seed regardless of Week 17 result. Lions can play for the #1 seed if Seattle and Arizona loses the next two games, and Lions wins out.
The Lions are winning with defense which is refreshing considering the past history in the last few years. They are winning games they are supposed to win down the stretch which is encouraging.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Because he's||
shady off-the-field and has a bad track record when it comees to QB development.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Homerun hire?||
He'd be a more of a doubles kind of hire to me. Very good coach, but clock management and QB development are his biggest weaknesses. The fact that he is similar to Hoke in a way that he lets the coordinators run their own thing while he oversees everything.
|6 days 6 hours ago||For Lions||
they need the Cowboys/Philly game to end in a W/L, not a tie. They obviously need the Packers to lose.
If the Lions wins the next two game(which they should given the schedule), they are a lock to make the playoff with 11 wins bc of the Cowboys/Eagles result. If Lions wins out, they could potentially play for the #1 seed and clinch the NFC North title.

With the cap and luxury tax, GMs aren't willing to take on Smith's contract unless it's an expiring contract

|1 week 18 hours ago||No one is going to trade for||
No one is going to trade for Smith. Not with his albatross contract. Dre and Okafor can't coexist together IMO.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Why? The front court will be||
Why? The front court will be crowded with Smith, Dre and Okafor if they do decide to draft him. If any, I think they're better off drafting Mudiay or wing players
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm pretty sure he'll run 4.5||
which is about what I expect him to run
|1 week 4 days ago||It is done before the season||
considering the bowl tie-in. That is to ensure that everybody has a passport ready for it.
|1 week 5 days ago||Big problem||
is Greg Roman. I'm not a big fan of his play calling and he has a tendency to have a lot of delay of game.
Problem #2 is Kaepernick. He's a one read QB and struggles to do progression reads. Physical talent is there with his speed and arm.
Problem #3 is there is no deep threat at WR to take the top off of the defense. Most of them are more of a short to intermediate WRs.
Problem #4 is the OL. They were once the best but has regressed a bit. Losing Boone for an extended period of time at the beginning of the season hurts the continuity of the OL.
|1 week 5 days ago||According to Football Outsiders F+/- ratings||
OSU is #2 in the country.
4. Ole Miss
|1 week 6 days ago||Actually FSU||
would be left out according to BCS formula. They don't have a strong enough computer ranking that would help them which would knock them off a few decimal points. I know most computer rankings would have FSU outside of top 5.
|1 week 6 days ago||That sounds exactly like||
the last coaching search with Dave Brandon and Jim Harbaugh........
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||The thing is||
I think GT beats FSU. Impossible to prepare for the triple option attack with 5 days to prepare. GT will have a field day against FSU defense IMO. Justin Thomas is probably the fastest player on the field and Broderick Snoody is right up there with Thomas so GT definitely has some weapons at A-back and B-Backs position.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||Talking about college level||
A lot of QBs under Miles haven't played well at LSU. That is a big concern.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||Not bad for a guy who||
only has one other D1 scholarship offer, Appalachian State before deciding to come to Michigan. I remember several who were not happy with the offer at the time. In JB we trust
|2 weeks 1 day ago||My post was an addition to||
your point that you were trying to make. I was just agreeing with you.
It helps that Joe Tiller was able to lure Drew Brees from Texas to Purdue. If it weren't for him, I'm not sure if Tiller would've last at Purdue.

dominance in B1G, record-wise, proves that spread can win in B1G.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||If Michigan wants a coach who can develop QBs||
Les Miles isn't a good candidate based on this criteria. Check out LSU QBs under Les Miles. They are all either mediocre or haven't panned out
