Mangina as the DC I get, but the QB coach promoted to OC?! I think they just couldn't find anyone else, and/or were too cheap. In any case, fuck Jed York. I would have traded 10 players for Harbaugh.

No team is going to trade, when they know you are going to fire him.

What I meant was I would have rather given up 10 players than give up Harbaugh. All that talk of players not wanting to play for Jim... I would have rather them pack up and GTFO than get rid of the best coach the 49ers have ever had, second to Bill Walsh.

Every team does cheat, looks for an advantage, that's why officials throw yellow flags on the field.

All teams were sent a letter by the NFL about watching other teams practice. Teams still did it and they (Pats) got caught and were punished to show others team, you better stop.

The balls were submitted to the Official before the game. The Official signed off on the use of the balls. Reports saying now, the Official didn't check the air pressure. That's on him, not the team.

No, I think they'll choose to ruin Mariota. Winston has all it takes to be a bust already within himself.

I was thinking of the Florida connection for Winston but I think they'll want to see the personal workouts and do more due diligence before they ruin a career.

The only thing I've about him for the last couple years has been the issue with that woman. One subject, a big subject, but not like the many bullshit Johnny Douchebag was doing.

Ah okay...so, nothing really requiring checking into rehab. Then, the red-flags probably are not as bad.

Given his abilities, I'm sure someone will take a chance on him.

Some shoplifting as well. Doesn't strike me as a kid ready to handle the money and fame of the NFL.

Not many of them are ready for that part of life. Dez Bryant with Dallas wasn't. The Cowboys put somebody on him to settle him down off the field.

Now the Browns GM might get suspended for Textgate since they were telling Kyle Shanahan what plays to run which is against league rules. With Gordon and Manziel, Cleveland is getting the spotlight away from their Cavs

Yup and IIRC it was 24/7 too. Hmmm, now that i'm thinking about it maybe it wasn't Bryant, but I know the Cowboys did have someone with a 24/7 chaperone..........

From the other thread. I think Winston goes #1. I am now reading how his football IQ is on par with Peyton Manning.

But his off-field IQ is lower than most. Not Manziel low, but low.

He has promise if he keeps it together. If.

And I looked right past the Florida connection. Local boy does good could fill lots of seats.

Can someone please explain to me why taxpayers are being held hostage in Kalifornia for two very profitable privately owned teams to be relocated to SoCal when pro football has repeatedly failed in La~la land?
