The article focuses on the fact that Flores wants the job and will take the job, contrasting him with McDaniels and, before that, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who used his supposed introductory press conference as head coach of the Jets to quit the job.
When did Belichick interview for and agree to…
Remembered to slip in the KC radio guys accusing the Patriots/associated scumbags of Foxboro of stealing equipment to my simmering cauldron of hatred. Mix in a TOUCHDOWN CAN-ZA-CITY! call and it should bring it to a rapid boil.
I had forgotten about that, as well. I couldn’t find any articles newer than mid-October, when the theft…[Read more]
I know this is every day, but Francesa was ridiculous again today.
I know from my own family that ginzos like to stick together, but this was ridiculous. Mike actually said “Who’d they name the trophy after?” Are you fucking shitting me? That’s an argument? They named it after him because Lamar Hunt felt it would be a nice ge…
If a rational person media had said or written anti-Patriots articles heading into the playoffs and felt Brady was referring to them when he said “Everyone thinks we suck,” they would have, at a minimum, said something like “I have to admit, I didn’t see this coming.”
To go with the defense of “No one specifically used the phrase ‘The Patriots…[Read more]

Tom Brady and the Patriots as scrappy underdogs? Give me a break
Brady’s comment about being disrespected played well locally, but it was the ultimate straw-man knockdown.
Says someone who knows pretty much everything about straw-man arguments.

I never watched an Adam Gase press conference or interview when he was with the Dolphins, but I never heard about his crazy eyes thing until yesterday. Has he always done this and I was just ignorant or did the realization that he’d be coaching the Jets push him over the edge?
“…many more days to look at film.”
Oh, fuck off.
It’s completely ridiculous. A different, less personal criticism of Bedard would be that saying one thing on the radio (for free) and writing something different on his site (which you have to pay for) will ultimately work against him. If the F&M appearances are an entic…[Read more]
What an asshole Bedard. “I can’t be wrong because I can change anytime after more film study.” Go away all ready.
A couple of items from twitter yesterday:
The entire structure of the NFL is designed to thwart the kind of dominance the Patriots have made routine. Eight consecutive conference championship games is crazy.
I guess Judy forgets she helped the “structure of the NFL” try to derail the Patriots success by participating in the…[Read more]

Kid Gas had a great one on Saturday. He said it would be better for Brady to lose to the Chargers than to lose the AFC Championship game since he’s 8-5 in the championship game.
So Brady has/will play in 70% of the championship games in the past 20 years. The sheer dominance of this team goes right over the heads of the media a…

According to Fatty the only thing that matters is winning so why does everyone give so much shit to BB and the Pats if that’s all that counts?
I think all true sports fans understand that when PK says “winning” he means “winning the right way.”
Comeback player: J.J. Watt, Houston. No argument with Andrew Luck, at all. Just thought Watt went through a little more to get back to playing great football, after being hit with two different career-threatening injuries the last two years, and fighting injuries throughout 2015 to just survive that season. This was a great comeback…

I wonder if the Saints have just woke up?
How could the Saints come out flat after that awesome motivational technique that Payton used? Also, it would have been swell if Jeffery or another one of the Eagles receivers let a pass go through their hands right to a defender in the 4th quarter of the last Super Bowl.
To follow up on…[Read more]
I know we know we’re spoiled with the last two decades of the Patriots, but the playoff stats for Rivers just reinforce the point. Rivers has played for 14 or so years and he’s in the top 10 all time for a lot of passing stats. His TD pass in the first quarter tied the franchise postseason record with 12. Brady has 71. There have been a couple con…[Read more]
Looks like the Dolphins are going to hire Brian Flores.
Don’t the decision makers in Miami know that all Patriots assistants are abject failures away from NE? That all their success is built on playing in the AFCE and their defense, in particular, is terrible?
I picture a Dolphins exec making a panicked conference call S…[Read more]

Speaking of the Colts….
I didn’t know about it before, but apparently it’s an offshoot of the “one game at a time” mindset. That is, the goal each week is to go “1-0.” That’s a much better motivational idea than having a tree stump and axe in the locker room, but, when you hang p…[Read more]

Jets are hiring Adam Gase.
The offensive guru who got Ryan Tannehill to maintain his “Can be pretty good sometimes, but is usually mediocre” level? The coach who’s offenses were always ranked in the bottom half of the league? That’s the guy who will get the best out of Sam Darnold.

I think it was the Wall Street Journal that ran a feature where they had chimps picking stocks against fund managers, and the chimps would often outperform the fund managers.
