    Cam Newton in a babushka

    Face of the franchise......."leader" of the team........."professional" QB The guy puts in more time thinking about his wardrobe than developing as a leader. He has all the physical skills and is fully capable of being a top NFL QB. But leadership is a strange thing sometimes. Leaders need to be a constant positive influence on the team, but Newton is a pouter. He gets too emotional and down when things go poorly. He doesn't have the respect of his offensive linemen and puts himself above the team. Off the field, he is a model citizen who does a ton of charity work without media attention. I wish he could recognize his lack of leadership and take steps to improve it......It would also help him on the field.

    Zeke Set To Hold Out Of Training Camp?

    I disagree.......Prescott needs a good group of versatile skill players and a more creative OC....not a $15 million RB...

    Zeke Set To Hold Out Of Training Camp?

    NO RB in todays's NFL is worth that kind of money......not if you're trying to win a super bowl. The last 14 out of 15 super bowl winners won with a RB by committee approach.

    Zeke Set To Hold Out Of Training Camp?

    Sooner or later, the cowpies are going to figure out that super bowl winning teams win with RBs by committee, not a high priced "3 down" back. Versatility and the ability to create matchup problems has become more valuable to teams that win super bowls. Tying your teams offense to one player is foolish when he can be replaced with 3-4 players, get close to the same production for a lot less money and impact on the salary cap. Not to mention, being able to continue to be effective if injuries hit....... Dallas should trade him and get as many draft picks that they can.......and rebuild their backfield with versatile, effective backs. BUT.......as an eagles fan, I hope Jerry Jones gives Zeke a 5 year deal for $90 million with $60 mil guaranteed......

    Over rated Head Coaches ?

    What I mean is that avg pts per game can be inflated by blowing out really bad teams. A measurement like the aikman ratings, which measures 7 or 8 offensive stats to show how efficient or effective an offense is..... Obviously, playing bad teams can inflate all kinds of numbers, but how an offense performs circumstantially I think is a better measure. The rams struggle in december and in the playoffs......and that's an indication that McVay can be outcoached by DCs.

    Over rated Head Coaches ?

    Average points per game is a misleading stat. They piled up the points against horrible teams in 2017....the colts, 49ers, cardinals, the giants......same thing last year......and come december and playoff time, they lost big games, needed a gift non-call and scored 3 pts in a super bowl they didn't belong in. And you make no sense in arguing that their offense is so hi powered, yet you think Goff sucks

    Over rated Head Coaches ?

    Nobody said he was rubbish.......he's overrated.....that's different. And they were not a top 5 offense in 2017...........and the fact that you think bortles could make that offense run is ridiculous. And yeah, the rams dealt with a few injuries......but they got a gift in the NFCCG and they scored an overwhelming 3 points against the pats. McVay is simply overrated.

    Over rated Head Coaches ?

    his 24-8 career record is mostly feasting off the NFC west the last 2 years.....10-2. And is 4-4 in December the last 2 seasons and that's only because in 2017, they played the cards and niners in december, who were atrocious. And he's 2-2 in the playoffs, with the gift of a non-interference call that caused radical rule changes or he's be 1-2 in the playoffs. He and his team fold under pressure. His offense wasn't as good as the eagles in 2017 and what do you think the rams would do if they lost one of their starting WRs, 3 RBs, and their QB in 2018? You think they would have gone to the super bowl with shawn mannion at QB??

    Jeff Fisher Says He Misses Coaching, Players

    Jeff Fisher........QB Killer

    Over rated Head Coaches ?

    Sorry, but even though he didn't win a super bowl, I'm including him......Sean McVay....overrated. I haven't seen the media blubber on about someone so much abut being a "genius" than Sean McVay. This guy has feasted on a terrible AFC west for 2 years, and stumbles late in the year.....then they choke in the playoffs. Not to mention that Pedersen and the eagles have beaten them twice in LA, with a back up QB, gone on to win a super bowl by beating the patriots.....a team that LA couldn't score more than 3 pts on with their high powered offense. And Pedersen is never ranked higher than McVay. Pure bullsh--

    Daks Agent wants $34m per year

    Dallas and Prescott will come to a contract agreement that is a little higher than Wentz's. With the roster they put together, Dallas can't afford to D around with their starter and Prescott can be controlled for 3 years (1 under contract, 2 possible years with franchise tag). So they both have incentives to get it done. Prescott is a good QB.......Linehan was a bonehead OC, but Kellen Moore may not be much better. Plus if Moore is installing a new offense, that may take some time to develop during the regular season. Anyway, The cowpies are not going to let Prescott go, nor should they.....and Prescott's agent knows he not getting $34 mill a year. This will be settled by training camp.

    All Time QB rankings... Do championships matter?

    I know this is media and internet fodder, but there are way too many variables to simply look at one or two categories and determine the best QB of all time. And in addition, the different rules and eras make it very difficult to compare. Today, a 300 yard game is very common....simply because a QB can stand back there and he knows he shouldn't be hit and his receivers can't be touched. Most of the rule changes promote offense. Statistically, Joe Namath wasn't a HOF.....some could even argue that he got in because he played in NY. Marino was a great QB, but average or below in the 18 playoff games he played. And these type of facts go on and one with all of them. Bradshaw had the benefit year after year of the best defense in the league giving him the ball on short field and having HOF skill players around him. Favre was a stat building mistake machine who could be incredible.....or ridiculously careless. And his playoff record is average. The point is that when doing a complete evalutation, you can't just award points for a super bowl win, when that QB may have been lousy in his team's win. Roethlisburger was horrible in his first super bowl, which the steelers won. So was Dilfer..... Eventuall, somebody will do some kind of deep analysis and come up with a "best QB"......but that will just lead to more debate.

    Goodell reiterates desire to shorten 4-game preseason

    With the emphasis so much on offensive games and the NFL becoming a "passing league", along with rule changes that support offense, the league really needs to go to the college OT structure. There's just too much pressure on a defense to keep the current scenario. I can't believe that with all the input from coaches, GMs and the players union that this issue remains the way it is. I think Goodell has done more to change the game in a bad way then anything else......

    Is Tyreek Hill's career over?

    I doubt the NFL will get serious about this kind of abuse until the law does. When you hit a woman or a child with such violence to break bones or other injuries, it should be mandatory 6 months to a year in a federal prison, with the general population. You can require counseling or whatever, but prison time should be required. Until then, the NFL will look at these guys as "assets" and will only walk a fine line to appear to be doing "something" while hedging their bet to let the guy continue his career.
