NFL (since 2016)
Free agency started last night and was pretty crazy some huge money being spent.

Osweiler getting £18m a year for the Texans, leaving the Broncos without a QB,

Giants have spent a fortune on good but not great players, Oliver Vernon has more guaranteed money than JJ Watt.

lots more deals but cant be bothered to list them all.

Really sad Ricers has called it a day, one of my all time favourite players. Absolute legendary trash talker without ever swearing. If you get chance go and listen to his mic'd up segments that have been released.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I don’t believe for one moment that the Eagles interviewed McDaniels for nine hours straight.

That’s just press guff and posturing by those briefing the media.

He would have spoken to them in slots, with breaks etc.

The question for Eagles fans is how much time did they actually spend interviewing the new HC: not how long was in the same city as the owners.

This all looks rushed and far from thorough. Everybody says they are thorough when they speak to the media afterwards.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
he's been on a number of teams that have lost a year coach yet he's been kept on, so he's very capable and respected. he's also a more likable bloke than mcdaniels, so sadly I think he'll do well

if you get time later today, watch dan campbells press conference. that is one interesting character :.)

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I’ve been following the Eagles recruitment quite closely with multiple podcasts and articles. They certainly cast the net far and wide and were even taking criticism for not speeding it up.

They had a 9 hour interview with Josh McDaniels last Sunday and a two day interview with Sirrianni over Tuesday and Wednesday. Apparently he impressed a great deal. The impression is that he is very intelligent, popular in the dressing room, and doesn’t take any shit.

Can’t say whether it will work out, one of the drawbacks is that, as a smaller name he will not have the clout to challenge the GM and the owner so they may have more of a voice than they should in what coaches he has to work with. They love that, and a more established candidate probably wouldn’t have signed up to it so easily.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Really odd hire for the Eagles.

Siriani is a hard worker but, irrespective of his talent, it looks like they've hired somebody who could have done with a couple more years' worth of experience.

I'm sure he's good at the Xs and Os, but he's going to need a lot more savvy on top if he's going to survive as a HC in Philly.

I don't really understand this modern phenomenon of franchises giving undue weight to recommendations from 'names'. The Jets gave Gase another shot (after Miami) once Manning gave his mate a good reference. Others, too. Now it looks like Frank Reich (ex-Philly OC) gave Siriani an unsurprisingly good reference.

Do any of these teams actually go through a robust recruitment process any more?

GM: Welcome to Philly, Nick.
NS: Thanks.
GM: Ha, ha, ha! You've got a great sense of humour.
NS: What?
GM: Says here that Frank Reich speaks highly of you.
NS: It says that now.
[Puts pen away]
GM: Well, Frank's a good old Philly boy. The job's yours.
NS: Huh? Aren't you going to ask me about Xs and Os? Management style? How I'm going to deal with the defense, having been an OC the whole time?
GM: Nope. No need. If good old Frank says you're a diamond, then you're a diamond. Welcome to Philadelphia, head coach...

Nice one and well done to your brother.
At least he doesn't have to sort out their secondary - now that is a big job.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Certainly going to be an interesting few months with lots of QB's seemingly leaving clubs and the retirements.

Think its a fairly poor set of QB's in the NFL at the moment with the odd exception compared to years gone by, though understandle considering the hall of fame legends who have retired in the past few years.

Interesting to see if we take the plunge ourselves, as I don't mind Jimmy G, but he does make too many poor decisions and is made of plastic.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Yeah, the Cowboys are definitely seen as the NFL's Man Utd.

That whole self-defined "America's Team" thing cheeses folk off.

But that should not detract from what Norf's brother is doing over the Pond. He's ripping it up.

On another note, I am a bit worried that Quinn and that defensive group will now make the Cowgirls a lot more competitive.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
The only time I liked the Cowboys was when old school Tom Landry was their HC, ever since they got their current owner Jerry Jones, I fucking hate them


Norf, congratulations mate, well done for your boy


PS: the Cowboys still fucking suck :-)

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Congratulations and Good Luck to your brother Norf.

You can be rightly proud of him.

onwards and upwards..........

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Norf,

Congratulations to your brother, man! That's a great job to land, even if it is at the Cowgirls.

He's ripping it up over there. I imagine Dan Quinn is a good guy to work for. Seems level headed, even if that was sometimes a problem for him in Atlanta. He's a damn fine DC, too, so imagine his/your brother's unit will improve the Girls.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Phenomenal news Norf, although the Cowgirls though...

There are only two things every Eagles fan agrees on. Brian Dawkins is a legend, and the Cowboys suck.

Pretty impressive for anyone though let alone an Englishman.

I’m allowed to say my bro has been announced as the new Dline coach for the cowboys....the boy is in the big time now massive step forward for his career

Hermit Road 2:06 Thu Jan 21
Re: NFL (since 2016)
Good start to a coaching career too.

Doug Pederson did the same when he retired and was an NFL Head Coach a decade later.

Also, Rivers has a hundred kids so it is a good way of spending more time with them

Takashi Miike 2:00 Thu Jan 21
Re: NFL (since 2016)
I'll always associate Rivers with Antonio Gates, a great partnership and like you say, fair play to him now giving back by coaching high school football
