    I can’t wait until Rogers sucks and they can’t blame McCarthy.

    I also saw that he broke all of DeShaun Watson’s HS records.

    Alabama has a mediocre secondary and Lawrence is a great QB. I guess this isn’t all that surprising

    Londoners would probably be satisfied at least for a while regardless of divisional opponents (they’re ”just” 3 out of 8 games anyway). Moving Miami makes sense geographically, but the Dolphins still have one of the biggest fanbases in Britain (and Europe in general), so out of a ratings perspective, you’d probably need to juggle even more teams around for optimal results.

    I sadly doubt it will catch on outside of a niche demographic, though. It will probably be akin to how hockey in Vegas was predicted to be (games will be sold out and there will be a decent local fanbase, but TV ratings will take longer to grow than the NFL probably has patience for). But hockey in Vegas benefitted from the most underrated factor, initial success. In the NFL, teams are so inconsistent, it’s hard to guarantee anything.

    Many fans of the old NFL Europe speculate that a German team would be better. I’ve very little insight into the sports climate there, but I think competition might be less stiff. Britain, and England in particular, while not as successful in all their sports, still enjoy a wide variety. Outside of association football, I don’t know what floats in Germany... Some old Schumacher F1 fans? Vettel of course probably still brings attention there. Ditto Dirk Nowitzki? Hell, I think I recall hockey cited as a top 3 sport in Germany.

    Khan wanted to own the rams and keep them in ST Louis but Kroenke blocked it and bought the team himself and he never even spoke to the city afterwards to try to keep the team in his home state

    The NFL has a fixation with London and while flights from the East Coast are not unreasonable, flying to California is close to 11 hours.

    A London team would need a US-based practice facility and perhaps have the players and families live in the US and just fly over to the UK for games. But there is no denying the NFL covets London.

    I am still astonished the Red Sox gave up two home dates with NYY to play in London in June.

    Think of all the Red Sox apparel that can be sold in England.

    Titans (Lack of Offens)ive Coordinator.

    One of the more boring teams to watch this year IMO.
    1st down- Run the ball
    2nd down- Run the ball
    3rd down- Throw the ball

    I'm not going to act like I know what I'm talking about though. We'll see how he does in Green Bay. Hope he turns it around. I like when the Packers are good even though I'm not a fan of their team. Big Rodgers guy.

    If the “Indy Fiasco” caught up with him, why would teams even bother interviewing him? He’s not African American, so he’s not fulfilling an NFL rule.

    He’s got a lot better resume than guys like Kingsbury or LaFleur. I’m not sure how I feel about it, but I think he’s the next HC of the Patriots.

    Huh? You answered this yourself.

    Only one team interviewed him, despite the superior resume. He was definitely hoping for more and would've gotten more.....namely Cleveland.....if not for last year's events IMO.

    Maybe you are right, I thought he HAD interviewed with CLE.

    I think he’s waiting for Hoodie to retire or move up the food chain. Other teams might think so too?

    Yeah, but imagine that trip from the west coast. Not that they'd go every year, but still.

    I love talk radio this week. Everyone talks about the teams that won last week like real threats and they can do it and I think they can win......forgetting that the top 4 are top 4 for a reason and generally the lower seeds get trounced.

    That Peter Schrager guy called Nick Foles the most clutch QB of all time. I guess what pushed him over the top was the Bears failing a 2-pt conversion and missing a fairly easy field goal... and Foles being good for one drive all game.
