    Camps are opening in less than 2 weeks (Bears open rookie camp next Monday) and we needed a new thread, so might as well just make this both

    With the all star game being a week later than usual this year, there is no quietest week of the year anymore. It's great. But I'm looking forward to this season.

    Great video showing just how bad Shula was as a coach and how underrated Cam and McCaffrey are. I'm optimistic about the Norv hire, and a better receiving group (and hopefully a healthier one) should take some load off the run game. I still hate that they didn't keep Norwell, but maybe this will force them to get a bit more creative at times.

    They have to. Saints and Falcons have gameplay wreckers on the D-line.

    Makes sense. Giants needed some secondary help.

    Was 18-40 as Lions HC in 85-88. Was 2-11 in 1988 at time of dismissal

    Most remembered for asking reporters "What does a coach have to do around here to get fired" after a Lions loss

    Had a meeting today at Nike World headquarters and walked past Ndamukong Suh, who was with his agent.
    Good grief what an imposing human being. Seeing them on TV just doesn't convey what monsters these guys are.

    A buddy of mine saw Orlando Pace in STL years ago and said the same thing. Said he was the biggest human he’d ever seen :laugh:

    Somebody appears to be trying to get a job in the media. The line about Washington in the article did crack me up though. He goes through the NFC East but couldn't even be bothered to talk about that team.

    Well, he's not really wrong about Flowers.

    Solder was solid once, but he's getting up there a bit. There's a reason the Patriots walked away.

    I had Shaq walk up to stand next to me to watch a Tina Turner cover band. I knew he was there because a shadow engulfed me. So much sunlight was blocked that the temperature dropped five degrees. My first thought was, "Holy crap, that guy is as big as Shaq." Then I turned and saw it was Shaq.

    :laugh: Exactly.
    Funny thing about Nike HQ is that it's evidently some common sight to see A-list athletes here. Maybe over the course of my project here I'll meet some, but I didn't bug Suh at all. He had a look like "let no man hassle me as I walk to my car!"

    He'll likely be there once it's time to play. He'd be giving up over $7M if he sat out for half a season.

    I think I remember reading that Bell wanted $17M a year. Good luck.

    It's a risk for Bell but if he stays healthy then he should be okay. Nearly $27M over two years and then he becomes a FA next offseason.

    I forgot this was still going on. Just get the Cowboys trade done already.

    I would hope this doesn't become another McNown situation

    They likely already tried but D didn't offer enough.
    I'd also be pretty wary of giving him more than a three year extension (beyond this year), which he probably wouldn't accept.
