I don’t appreciate the Eagles funny little game of making us get into the playoffs and risk winning a game and extending Jason Garrett.  Just take the division lead you shits

I thought the benching of Foles was completely idiotic - Minshew is hilariously memeworthy but he's not shown that his ceiling is clearly higher than Foles; especially consdering Foles lost a child during the offseason and then broke a clavicle so it's not like he's been 100% this year.

  • Played decent against the Chiefs before he went down to injury
  • Did ok versus the Titans
  • He played good vs the Colts (not his fault the Colts put up 33 points and had two 100 yard rushers)
  • Bit of a dud vs the Bucs but everyone has a bad game here and there...
  • For example guys like Leonard fournette who in the 3 games Foles has started has averaged a whopping 52 yards per game

Marrone is coaching for his job, so he's gonna throw anything and everything at the wall right now.

They are only really committed to Foles for one more season, so if Marrone can show that he has found the long-term QB he can probably save his bacon.

Is that how Foles' salary is guaranteed? I thought it was over 4 years

Yeah that have an out before the 2021 season where there isn't a ton of dead money. They frontloaded it, I suppose expecting that they'd have to deal with a massive cap hit from Ramsey in a few years. And also probably playing it safe given his non-January and February 2018 play the past 5 seasons.

I almost forgot that not even two years ago the Jags were half a quarter away from going to a Super Bowl.

And to think they'd have gone if Marrone didn't play the most conservative football ever seen.

So since I hate the Lions, I'm hopping on the Seahawks band wagon.

My favorite player is now a Seahawk (Diggs), my favorite QB is there, cool colors, and I've loved the way they build their team since the Legion of Boom days. 

Or Baltimore,  loved the way they build their teams. They have down years on occasion but the track record of success is there.

Since 2000 I believe only the Steelers and Patriots have had fewer sub-.500 seasons than Baltimore. They might be tied with the likes of Seattle and Green Bay though.

Cleveland needs to call him right now. He's a proven top 10 coach.

A little generous

His style would be perfect for Cleveland and that division, imo. No matter how pass happy the league gets, if you can't run the ball in the cold, the rain, and the snow, you aren't winning the AFC North when you have to go to Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

Belicheck, Carroll, Tomlin, Payton, Reid, Harbaugh. I'd put those six above him without argument. I'd slot Rivera in with Gruden, Pederson, Shanahan, Arians, and McVay, who are either up and down, or need to prove it over a longer time, in the next tier.

I feel like I'm missing someone.

I feel like a lot of Carolina's success is in spite of him, not because of him. He's not bad but I wouldn't go out of my way to hire him if I were a GM.

The Giants are an immediate front runner if only because Dave Gettleman cannot resist anyone associated with the Panthers or Cardinals.

In that case, he's welcome to Vance Joseph and we'll happily take Rivera.

He'll be the favorite for just about every job that opens up.

Though, his whole appeal is the offense he runs with a very specific kind of QB. Newton isn't that kind of QB anymore, I doubt after all his injuries he wants to run an option-focused offense. And there isn't exactly a replacement out there who can fit the bill.

It might be like when he was in SF and his name got thrown around. Teams decided against it because of his style of offense. But the Ravens are meticulous in coaching their own coaches up. They want every coach to become a coordinator, and every coordinator to become an HC. It allows them to attract the best coaching talent.
