Just thinking, another year and another case of Lamarr Jackson not delivering for Balti. Yes, he's had injuries but that in itself is the issue as well. A running QB will get injured as sure as night follows day.

He'll be going into this 5th season next and already QBs like Burrow, Herbert, Jones, Dan Jones, Allen, Mahomes, Murray, among the young QBs all look better. And Lance, Fields, Lawrence, Wilson could overtake him as well.
When do we start hearing the "Lamar is a system QB" talk? Huntley has been pretty good in his absence. :coffee:

Yeah, I mean, that's the issue, right? That and his passing skill hasn't developed at all since he was in college, which, I mean, Bobby Petrino got more out of him than Harbaugh did? He can talk to RGIII about both of those things. :coffee:

I think the obvious choice since it's February 2 is the Washington Groundhogs.

Snyder is trying to get around the whole "Redskins" thing.... I'm guessing "Crimson Epidermis" or "Scarlet derma" or "Vermillion Hides"

Why any NFL team would hire this whackjob is beyond me.
Somebody will and Chicago is a decent bet. Ownership there clearly doesn't have a clue. That's a blue blood NFL franchise with a storied history, yet their last championship was 1985. That's a terrible fact for a team like that. Just one team in America's 3rd biggest city and a sports-mad city to boot.

Just shows, this aristocracy that the NFL runs, where ownership just passes down to relatives is nonsensical. McCaskey has done nothing with this franchise and I'm shocked the Bears fans haven't been agitating for her to go.

Harbaugh is good for a couple of seasons, he'll definitely luft a team and did a decent job getting SF to a SB. But then it all goes to pot in lightning quick time because he is genuinely, half-mad.

Nobody can honestly say that Mike Vrabel should not be in the mix for coach of the year. Loses Derrick Henry and yet they still will likely end up 1st seed in the conference.

He's definitely in the conversation. In the end, voters will remind themselves that losing a RB should not be that big of a deal. He did a good job though.

he should be and he should win it

I don't know. I could make a very persuasive case for Bill Belichick who has done wonders to rebuild and coach up an entire team with FAs and rookies in only 1 training camp.

i'm biased but i think bb should be in the convo almost every year. that said...
vrabel lost henry, jones and has just an average qb.
henry is still something like 9th in the nfl in rushing though he hasn't played since week 8.
