    The Jameis Winston experience has already got his last 2 head coaches fired. I imagine he will get the  3rd guy whacked as well. Let Arians have that job. It will surely be his last bite of the HC apple.

    “I have a feeling he’s gonna miss,” said a true sharp sitting across from me, Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post.

    Like he’s Ace fucking Rothstein

    Exactly one month after Kingbury’s got hired to be USC’s offensive coordinator for 2019, USC denied him permission to interview with the Cards and Jets for their head-coaching jobs, which is totally fair. If Kingsbury wanted to work in the NFL, he shouldn’t have taken a college job.

    Fingerwagging Pete.  No one should be allowed to take a higher profile and better paying job, or at the least have an opportunity to interview and get at least that minimal experience.  And let’s disregard that those opportunities weren’t there when he took the USC position.  Why did Pete take the MMQB position if he wanted to work for NBC?

    Our favorite entrepreneur has had to take a twitter break.  That’s a shame.

    Arians is what, one or two heart attacks deep plus ‘digestive issues?’  I’d take him in a dead pool.

    Arians is kind of a tubby bitch, you think he takes Winston up on his “taste a victory” offer?

    :lol: I love this.  The O-Lineman behind the photographer is like ” really, this shit? It’s a preseason game” while #35 is like “wait what? What the fuck is this fool doing?”  Guy over his left shoulder is just trying to slink away

    But she was already posting photos from a restaurant shoot less than 24 hours later.

    Great news, the Broncos get to speed up their interviews with Vic Fangio now that the Bears are out.  And they were supposedly wowed by Mike Munchak!  I’d hang myself if I had to root for these teams.

    I know Elway is like God there but how much more slack is he going to get? Is he on his last coach/qb combo or will the trainwreck ownership situation allow him to skate when Fangio/Flacco inevitably fails?

    He’ll always be a God and he did get a Soupey as the GM but yes most people are ready to move on from him.  The radio talking men who praised everything he did are now retroactively questioning all of his moves.  Stuff like ‘what the hell was he thinking with Paxton Lynch?  He panicked because he didn’t have a QB and thought the Cowboys were going to take him!’ yet if you dialed up their shows from 3 years ago they spent days on how much of a genius move it was.  Or hiring Vance Joseph.  What a dumbass!  Yet 2 years ago all you heard was what a great hire he’s a real leader of men.  Case Keenum sucks, what a terrible signing!  Of course at this time last year it was go get Cousins or Keenum and instant playoffs.  Now you got a radio talker who says trade Miller trade something else get the #2 and #3 picks in the draft get a QB buy a new offensive line and in 2 years you start a run of sustained excellence like the NFL has never seen.

    Meanwhile the best transaction they made in the last couple of years was an UDFA who didn’t want to move out of his parent’s house so he signed with them instead of elsewhere

    I think Chubb is going to be pretty good and the receiver they got in the 2nd round, Cortland Sutton, is pretty good.  But other guys like Chris Harris are getting old and Miller is still great but they pay him a lot.  The offensive line is a disaster.  Philip Lindsay’s injury wasn’t a good one either, I guess he did major damage to his wrist and they had to call in some other specialist.  Sanders tore his Achilles at the end of the year so he’s not helping any time soon.  Roids can only do so much for Derek Wolfe anymore.  Shane Ray won’t be coming back, Brandon Marshall the LB, they traded for weirdo Sua Cravens who did zilch.  They have issues.  It’s fantastic.

    Our favorite entrepreneur has had to take a twitter break. That’s a shame.

    Some favorite tweets to her:

    “it doesn’t matter that you’re a woman. it has nothing to do with it. You are a total asshole on twitter, You deserve to be mocked. How many restaurants are there in Boston?We have all dealt wit the same shit. it sucks. Bureaucracy sucks, deal with it.”

    “I like your food and dogs a lot more than your politics”. (she’d probably have twice as many saying this if she was for Trump rather than against him, but if it’s true that the affluent are more conservative, it’s pretty stupid to turn off that segment of your customer base. And when your tweets are the equivalent of the “motherfucker” comment from the lady in Michigan, you can rest assured she’s turned people off.)

    “I ask that because of a chef/owner of a new restaurant to think you are going to work less than 12 hours a day. You are out of your freaking mind.”

    I could very easily see Gilda as Roseanne Rosannadanna doing a monologue on some gross habit of Peter King. He has plenty of them.

    Arians went from “I will only come back to coach the Browns” to “I can fix Jameis Winston” pretty quick.

    The bigger the phony, the bigger the sports media love-fest.

    Arians is Exhibit A-Z.

    I could have sworn that, when he was hired in Arizona, Arians said that this would be his first and last NFL head coaching gig. His reasoning was that, at his age, he was going to put his all into the Cardinals job and then not chase jobs after that. I couldn’t find any mention of Arians saying that, so maybe I have him confused with a different coach.

    What definitely was phony was his retirement essay. It wasn’t enough for him to have a press conference announcing his retirement, he had to write a letter for The Athletic. This section does not hold up well:

    Now I have a baby grandson Asher, who lives with my daughter and son-in-law in Birmingham, Alabama. I wasn’t available during much of my granddaughter’s Presley’s childhood in Birmingham—I was so far away from her coaching in Pittsburgh and so tied down to football that I felt like I couldn’t get away—and I’m not going to let that happen again with Asher.

    I want to be active in Asher’s life—I call him “Fuzz,” because of the fuzzy hair he had on his body when he was born—and I don’t want him to only see me on television on Sundays. I want to teach him how to fish, how to play golf, how to throw a football—things I wish I had had more time to do with my own children. I’m not going to miss out on the chance of being a grandfather who is present in his life.

    The article was posted on 1/1/18. If Asher has mastered how to fish, play golf and throw a football over the last year, then maybe Arians does belong on a sideline somewhere. If not, he’s going to be wondering where Grampa is this summer.

    I also never knew this:

    Most NFL coaches don’t socialize with their players. I did. When players walked out of University of Phoenix Stadium after our games, the first car they’d see in the parking lot was mine. The trunk would be open and I’d be there serving beer, mixed drinks, shots—you name it. The bartender in me—I used to sling drinks at a dive in college— always made sure you were taken care of. And of I course, I made sure everyone was responsible and had a safe way home.

    If a player had a bad game, I’d give him a beer and a big, sincere hug. If a player had a great game, I’d give him a beer and a big, sincere hug. You see, I know they each tried; they each gave it their best shot. Sometimes you come up short; sometimes you go over the top. If you’ve earned the trust of your teammates, if you’ve played with determination, if you’ve been a team player—regardless of a one-time outcome—you got the beer and the hug. And then I always asked both players if there was anything I could do to help them get ready for the start of our preparation for the next game.

    On one level, this is pretty cool. Who wouldn’t want to hang out with your coach and teammates after a game and have a beer or two. Then again, these guys aren’t in college or this isn’t pickup softball. A head coach doesn’t have to be an emotionless robot with their players, but do you want players wondering “Was coach planning to cut/trade/bench me (or a teammate) when he was pouring me a drink and telling a joke last Sunday?”

    I hope Arians keep this tradition going in Tampa Bay. Nothing bad will happen after giving Jameis Winston a few drinks and then putting him in an Uber.

    That’s a very common theme to those who the Patriots have beaten

    Kordell Stewart still thinks the better team didn’t win

    Marshall Faulke still think the Rams were screwed by the Patriots filming their practice.

    The Raiders still talk bitterly about the correct Tuck Rule calling
