Baker Mayfield is the oldest remaining AFC QB remaining in the playoffs

 

Mayfield (25 years, 272 days)

Mahomes (25 years, 116 days)

Allen (24 years, 235 days)

Jackson (24 years, 4 days)

 

If you're a fan of a team with one of those guys (lucky me!), that's a pretty inspiring statistic. Those guys could all be good-to-great for a decade.

You know, I'm really happy with how Josh Allen has progressed. Bills-Chiefs is going to be the new Colts-Patriots. Book it. And frankly? I think there will be a lot more authentic excitement about this rivalry considering they are both small markets and until recently both hadn't been great since the 90s.

No kidding. I'm worried Jackson is going to be worn out by the time he's 30, but something seems very different about him compared to other dual-threat QBs. His running style seems to reflect that he believes that he is a great throwing QB that can really run rather than someone out to prove that QBs can be running threats too. Maybe he lasts longer. Or maybe he went Super Saiyan when he took a dump in Cleveland and that's why he still looks like he's 100%.

I'm disappointed in the Doug Pederson firing.  Not because I think he's a great coach, but because it confirmed my biggest fear, and that's that owner Jeffrey Lurie is calling all the football shots, and I don't have any faith that any coach can succeed here.  I'm surprised because Lurie wants stability in the HC position - like Pittsburgh, New England, and the Eagles with Andy Reid.  I'm sure that Doug basically said that he couldn't be a puppet anymore and they said 'OK, then you can't be our coach.'

 

There's a real chance that Doug Pederson becomes Terry Francona.  A guy that was just happy to have his first job (in Philadelphia!), smiled, and did what his bosses (and players) told him.  Then got fired, got a change of scenery and a fresh start, and became very successful.  

 

Doug was done dirty here.  He had no say in his own coaching staff.  Hell - they hired the DC before even hiring him!  Just last offseason, he announced that he was retaining his OC, only for the OC to be fired the next day, because the owner and GM (who's the real culprit here) said so.  Doug had to get permission for everything, including benching Carson Wentz.  He was told to tank (despite his weak-effort to hide it) and then left hanging to face the questions.  He had no chance.

 

Doug's a very nice guy, honest to a fault with the media, and it's very possible that he finally got a backbone and stood up for himself and was fired for it.  He was flat out told that his choice for the new DC and OC (after not even having one this season) were unacceptable and that it would be a "team effort" to find coaches, and that he wouldn't be allowed to call plays anymore.  Granted, those choices were promotions from within, but how can you have any pride if you're simply a "yes man"?

 

Jeff Lurie said that he "has a feeling that Doug will wind up with another HC job by the end of the week", which leads to speculation that the Jets may want him.  I don't know if he's a good coach or not, but he needs a fresh start somewhere else with an organization that empowers him to do his job.

I honestly thought that Roseman was going to be fired before him. How does that man still have a job?

If you listen to what Lurie said yesterday, it's obvious - and an indication that the Eagles are F'd.  Howie is a conniving-undermining snake.  I never used to buy the "he's not a football guy!" argument, but it's perfectly clear that a freaking CPA should not be in charge of your scouts and coaches.

With Nagy and Pace returning, the Bears are likely to end their 101st year without a 4,000 yard QB, the longest streak in league history.

The Eagles and Bears were the only teams without a 4,000-yard passer until Carson Wentz did it last season.

 

Jim McMahon was the Bears QB when I was a kid, and since they won the SB, I thought he was great - but he wasn't.  Even when he was on the Eagles and extremely popular and successful for a couple of years as a fill in, he wasn't really a great QB.  The Bears, in my life time, have never had a great QB - or even a really good one.  I'm thinking of guys like Tomczak, Harbaugh, Cutler, the guy with the neck beard, I think Jim Miller?, and Mitch Trubisky.

The Bears haven't had a great QB since Sid Luckman.

The first quarterback I think of for the Bears is Kordell Stewart, and holy :censored: that’s sad. But not as sad as realizing that his replacement was named Rex Grossman and he took that sad sack franchise to a Super Bowl.

The Bears' completely endless issues with finding a halfway decent QB are so weird to me.

 

There was an old e-mail someone sent in to the Bears Why Your Team Sucks during the ass-end of the Cutler years there I've never forgotten which basically said: "half the fanbase thinks Cutler is a lazy, unmotivated, turnover machine whose offense had it's best numbers when he was injured and Josh McCown was leading it, and the other half think he's the best QB we've had since the 40s and that he's more than capable of leading a good, competitive playoff team. The kicker is that both sides are 100% right."

How many “last strikes” is this guy going to get? For real, he has been suspended probably 2x as long as he has been able to play if not 3x

Gordon got his ring. He has no incentive to quit at this point. 

 

As for Deshaun, he needs to tell McNair to :censored: off & request a trade. He's a black QB in Houston, when has that ever ended well?

It's not like Josh Gordon is sitting there consciously thinking "they ain't never gonna catch me" or "my NFL career don't mean nothin' so I'mma hit this" when he smokes up.  He's clearly got some addiction issue or other reason why he can't put substances aside for any length of time.  I get that there's some schadenfreude involved when a multi-millionaire fails (I'm guilty of this too), but it's sad that some people think it's something to have fun with.  Let alone that weed is legal recreationally in several states, and medically in a lot more yet the NFL sees the need to ban it for reasons. 

 

I don't know what the solution is, but maybe, ironically, taking away the pressure of being tested for weed all the time and losing his job might actually help him use less.  IDK though, everyone's different.

Is it just weed? If so, weed is legal in like half the United States.

 

If it's not just weed, that's something else.

 

Speaking of football McNairs, sometimes I think great QBs of the 2000s and marvel that Steve McNair was murdered. Crazy world sometimes.
