  1. You can remedy that by making it so every team gets a second bye week that is usually tied to a Thursday game. That way, teams are playing the Thursday game on (usually) 9-10 days rest. What you might have to do to accommodate that change is to have the season opening game in Week 1 on NBC on Wednesday and then perhaps do a split Thursday night doubleheader the next night between CBS and NFL Network with a 7:30 and an 11:00 PM ET game (early game airs on CBS East/NFL Network West, late game is CBS West/NFL Network East) with teams who play in those prime time games in Week 1 the teams eligible to play in the Week 2 Thursday nighter. As for OT, as said, I personally would like to see the NFL go to the college rule for OT as most such games end in one OT period.
  2. Based on what I heard, I believe this is in part to avoid a scenario where a team plays a full 15-minute OT and then has to wheel back and play on Thursday. That extra five minutes of OT could apparently make a huge different when teams are wheeling back for a Thursday game (another reason why I would give all teams a second bye week that is tied to Thursday games). And I do think no matter how much its ridiculed, College OT is way better. Most OT games in college only go one period and there is always a winner. As said before I would modify the college rules for the NFL this way: Teams start on the opponent's 40-yard line. Beginning with the second OT, teams MUST go for two after a TD. If the team going first in an OT period scores in fewer than four plays, the team going last has only that many plays to equal the score (i.e.: If team A scores in three plays, team B only has three plays to match). The last rule for a modified college OT comes from the only time the XFL had an OT game in its one season in 2001. That invokes a strategy where a team really has to think of whether they want to go first or not and not automatically go last in an OT period.
  3. Yeah, though I do think he could still wind up at Arkansas if Bret Bilema has another screwy season there. Jerry Jones is an alum and I would think he'd want Kelly to take over his alma mater.
  4. He may be waiting for that, but if this works out, he might never go back to coaching.
  5. The Run N Shoot offense was also used in the USFL before the NFL if I remember correctly. The Wildcat is still responsible for the greatest one-season turnaround in NFL history, that 2008 Dolphins team was 11-5 (the ONLY time since 2002 the Pats have NOT won the AFC East) a year after they were 1-15 and had they not ran into a badly injured Ravens squad would have been the first 0-16 team in NFL history (one year before the Lions, whom some actually looked at as a playoff team before the 2008 season actually did go 0-16).
  6. Giants/Patriots seems to always be that week. Also notable is the Eagles play all four preseason games on Thursday.
  7. But the Texans may have gotten that in DeShawn Watson, who likely landed in the best possible spot for him.
  8. Worse, the Rams actually had the pick they gave up for RG III BACK a couple of years later (2nd overall when the Redskins were REAL bad).
  9. Exactly. He did pay a steep price and he will have to live with what he did for the rest of his life, something no amount of money or fame can erase. It's part of his life forever no matter how much anyone wants to brush it over. He likely was a first rounder and possibly Top 5 without that incident and he has a clean record, which right there would have been millions more. He cost himself a ton because of this.
  10. They may be also hoping to get the #1 pick next year when Sam Darnold becomes available (assuming he leaves after next season) and then they can trade Kizer to a team not wanting to go high up to get a QB for another 1st rounder (some had Kizer going in Round 1 this year).
  11. Oh, and the Browns could actually have gotten Dak Prescott BEFORE the Cowboys got him (with the pick they used for Kessler).
  12. Those who did I think were really hoping if so, it would be with no higher than a 3rd rounder. What Mixon did was wrong without question and he has already paid a heavy price and will continue to do so. The backlash had to be expected.
  13. It would be done similar to the NBA where you can fall no lower than three spots (from 1st to 4th, 2nd to 5th, etc,).
  14. Well, the Flyers in the NHL version jumped all the way to 2nd from 13th. Could you imagine what would have happened here if that had been the Eagles jumping from 14th to 2nd this year and/or last year jumping all the way to 2nd from 13th WITHOUT having to give up the picks they did?
  15. Which is why I would not be shocked if Philly winds up permanently hosting the draft in that format (even perhaps down the road shifted to a Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday format).
