Re: More fodder. . .

Results are in and for the most part the banning of the "hip-drop" tackle is NOT popular: https://www.yahoo.com/sports/jj-watt-li ... 14790.html

Re: More fodder. . .

I've not been one to complain, generally, about efforts to make the game safer but this might be a turning point for me: https://sports.yahoo.com/nfl-bans-hip-drop-tackle-despite-nflpas-objections-150902401.html I don't remember even hearing the term "hip-drop tackle" before last year. I s...

Re: PIT QB signings

Personally, I think that Russell still "has it" and if he can resemble in any form his SEA self and Justin Fields can learn from that then PIT should be in pretty good shape at QB for a while.

Re: 2021 QB draft class

This class was so hyped too. I never bought into Wilson, but I thought there was no way Jones would be worse than alright, especially after the first year. The biggest surprise might be Lawrence just being decent, though . T.L. had real issues with turning the ball over late last season and, like y...

PIT QB signings

R.W. and Justin Fields. How do Steelers fans feel about that? (personally, I think the Steelers made a killing with those signings. On that basis, alone, I expect the 'Stillers' to be much improved in 2024)

Re: Aaron Donald Retires

Absolute first ballot HOF'er and a dominant force. His ability to shed a tackle and just appear out of a mass of bodies at the line and rocket towards a QB was something else. He could go from being engaged in a block to engulfing a QB 7 yards away in seemingly less than half a second. Yup. His abi...

Re: Aaron Donald Retires

Bad news for the Rams. GREAT news for O-linemen and QBs throughout the league. I'm not gonna lie and say that I've seen and evaluated every single D-lineman who's ever played in the N.F.L. but after watching Aaron Donald over the last decade I can't imagine that there's ever been a better defensive ...

Re: Freezer Bowl

I think we'd better get used to scenarios like the one in Buffalo. It's become relatively commonplace to suspend games and clear out fans when there's lightning near the stadium, and to cut exhibition games short when weather conditions dictate it. Now a playoff game has been rescheduled. Such move...

More fodder. . .
