One problem with a lot of the fun college strategy is that roster sizes are limited in the NFL thanks to the salary cap. So you can't just keep throwing guys out there (Chip Kelly ran into this). Also the players are almost all big and fast, so the advantage some schools have in deploying exciting stuff like the triple option is nonexistent in the NFL except as a gadget play.

That said, someone like Mike Leach with an air-it-out mentality might just manage to make it work in the NFL.

 A lot of NFL passing systems are based off the Air Raid anyway, so Leach would have no problems there, Mesh is a bitch to defend no matter how good you are. I like the way he calls his offense, there's a pass play called and then you audible at the line based on the look of the defense. Now, obviously, NFL defenses, sans Oakland, are much better at disguising what they're doing, but I think there's still some edge to be gained there. His ideas about balance and football philosophy in general are pretty great too.

Mostly I just want the press conferences.

I'd love to see Leach in the NFL. Provided he coaches a team I can actually stand, that is.

So bizarre that he has waited this long to sign for a team.

Happy with that landing spot for him.  I like the Saints, and it's not like we'll be meeting them in the playoffs. <_<

It couldn't have worked out better for him Playoff bound contender with a Hall of Fame QB.

Honestly would love to see Saints get a ring so Dez can have one. He toiled through so much with Dallas and is deservig since they couldnt get everything together ever

Dez is really good catching contested balls even if some other parts of his game have dropped off. That's exactly what the Saints need, a guy who can catch the ball in tight coverage in the endzone. It basically makes their offense unstoppable.

Just from watching limited Dez games he always seemed lethal in the redzone with Romo.

He'll have a field day with Brees too.

Looks like Flacco could be out for a few weeks.  Jackson era begins?

Should honestly begin either way at this point. Ravens aren't out but they're at the point where they need a spark and to take a chance. I'd rather Harbaugh go out swinging.

The Saints are smashing the Bengals. 48-7, with possession in the 4th quarter.

Down 24 with 6 minute remaining, Belichick waves the white flag and sits Brady, putting Hoyer in

Brady is still crazy efficient but watching him this year it's definitely seems like he's regressed ever so slightly.

He's still good enough to win yet another Super Bowl but the needle is turning ever so slightly.

“Sure, Meacon. Taking the Bengals, at home, in the cold, as +9.5 underdogs seems like a great idea. Saints struggle in the cold!”

What a wrong Meacon I was.

I would've taken that too, expecting the Saints to eke out a 24-17 win or something.
