First Down Morning Links
While Jeff Ireland heart must be hurting after being let go last night by Miami he must have a little smile on his face knowing his good friend Tony Sparano is back coaching in florida with the Tampa Bucs. Man Tampa is putting together quite the coaching the staff under Lovie Smith
I seem to recall reports that Marty and Vick didnt like each other when marty joined the Jets. Did time heal?
If you extend the playoffs, then you have to go to basically 2 divisions in each conference, the current format would make no sense at all. Diluting the game doesn't improve it
With so many players on the edge, I wonder why none have yet called in their chips with their fellow gang members and done Goodell in
Mike and Mike were playing Free Bird this morning. Now I am listening to it at work and doing absolutely nothing. I now also have a strong urge to do drugs, an urge that I have never experienced before.
@billsare4thagain Lovie's teams don't use an offense so Sparano will be perfect. With enough 6 to 3 victories the Bucs could scrap their way into that 7th playoff spot
@billsare4thagain the Tampa Recyclers
@iycedout @CJ gets two many carries sugar should never be consumed (since all food contains a good amount) unless you are burning lots of calories every day...and yes dry fruit is basically all the sugar (which doesn't go bad) left from the original
@iycedout geno's play also really went to hell when they forced winters in as a starter. as the OL stabilized he got better and started trusting what he was seeing or not seeing
@iycedout he was never under center in college, so of course he would do better in the shotgun
@iycedout he needs to improve his footwork, and we MUST give him protection and obviously someone not called Salas to pass to
@Luciano11 agreed. We should stop sending football to the world and the world should stop sending fuutbol to us
@Luciano11the nba will likely have a playoff team in the east that will be 10 games under .500. sometimes less is more
@Luciano11 no, because of the children
@Luciano11 We can prevent this by moving the Raiders to London and the Browns to LA for a year. That will kill the interest
@iycedout I really am one of the old guys at the gym. One of the ways I know I am not the oldest is I have the decency to put a towel around me when heading to and from the shower. What is wrong with these people?
@iycedoutWelcome to old age, sir. 25/26 was about when I started feeling too old and creepy to ogle the 19 - 20 year old chicks at the gym.
@idothis2 Vick also admitted he doesn't watch film which would ruin the point of hiring a veteran backup to help out Geno.
@idothis2 welcome back!!! there are three of us now! BTW, good articles
@Luciano11 they can always turn it into basketball where over half the league makes the playoffs.
@iycedout Think about playoff expansion though. While it may be exciting for some team to get in at 8-8 there could be less value to late season games for teams that are in but can't improve their position. Without that second bye slot possibility the last game for Indy and Cincy would have been worthless
@iycedout he wants a SB in London? really? and we are complaining about Met Life?
@iycedout Dolphin fans like this
@iycedout that is going to hurt this league.
@CJ gets two many carries your first mistake was listening to Mike and Mike
@Northshorepsbc@iycedout Decades of repressed homosexuality due to the culture they grew up in forcing upon them their beliefs that it was unnatural, unholy, and morally wrong to be a homosexual. Consequently, they subconsciously act out in homoerotic ways such as exposing themselves to other men in what is perceived as a natural locker room environment.
@Luciano11 then we could have a 9-9 qualifier instead of an 8-8 one
I completely agree with this guys take on it.
I oppose expanding the playoffs. Even though I know that first weekend with six playoff games is going to be the greatest NFL weekend ever.
@the hooded geniusI would, but all of my music is on Spotify and I lose data service when I'm on base, so I can't stream it. First World Problems.
