    You still thinks that's what I was doing?



    BTW, I wouldn't have become pointlessly annoyed or mocking if you had done that, or even if you had merely done what I did and (gasp) shared a different viewpoint.

    So, how about that NFL offseason? You happy with the Colts' moves so far, TD?

    I wasn't annoyed.


    And I'm definitely not annoyed by the Colts' GM's moves.

    Always interesting the demand for coaching staff people moving up. Who is the next hot property, DC moves to head coach, QB coach is now OC, etc.

    Well, how about Jeff Fisher's crack offensive staff for the Rams last year and their movement up the ladder.

    OC Rob Boras, now tight ends coach with the Bills
    QB Chris Weinke, now a QB coach/Analyst with Alabama
    RB Skip Peete, same job still thanks to Todd Gurley
    WR Mike Groh, same job but now with Eagles
    TE John Lilly, currently unemployed
    OL Paul Boudreau, currently unemployed*
    Asst. WR Kenan Smith, currently unemployed but evidently still with Lindsey Vonn
    Analyst Barrett Trotter, not sure but his linkedin page still refers to the St. Louis Rams

    *Boudreau is actually a long time successful OL coach, but maybe the game has passed him by.

    From this it doesn't sound as if but a handful of teams would ever have any interest in Karpernick:

    Also appears as if a large number of league organizations genuinely hate the guy. I'm good with that.

    Hate sucks, so I just disapprove of the actions and hope the man can learn the error of his ways and turn things around for the better.

    Colts have signed former Seattle TE Brandon Williams. He's a solid player who was with the Panthers previously but Seattle just did not have room for him with 3 other TEs.

    Ricky Jean-Francois may sign with Seattle, what's the story on him?

    In four seasons with three teams, six receptions. He's either gotta be great on special teams or blocking to end up on the active roster.

    From Roger Goodell:


    Here at the NFL, we have a relentless drive to improve—particularly when it comes to the way fans experience our*game.

    In order to understand how we might deliver a better and more exciting entertainment experience for you, we embarked on a specific project before the start of the 2016 season to gather feedback about the in-stadium and live NFL game viewing*experience.

    Consistently, we heard from fans that we can improve in two key areas: the flow and pace of the game, and commercialization and the number of unnecessary disruptions to the game on the*field.

    Today, I want to tell you about some of the ways we are working to address*that.

    On the football side, there are a number of changes we are making to the mechanics and rules of the game to maintain excitement and also improve the consistency of our*officiating.

    For example, next week clubs will vote on a change to centralize replay reviews. Instead of a fixed sideline monitor, we will bring a tablet to the Referee who can review the play in consultation with our officiating headquarters in New York, which has the final decision. This should improve consistency and accuracy of decisions and help speed up the*process.

    Regarding game timing, we're going to institute a play clock following the extra point when television does not take a break, and we're considering instituting a play clock after a touchdown. We're also going to standardize the starting of the clock after a runner goes out-of-bounds, and standardize halftime lengths in all games, so we return to the action as quickly as possible. Those are just a few of the elements we are working on to improve the pace of our*game.

    Together with our broadcast partners, we will be working to meaningfully reduce down time and the frequency of commercial breaks in our game. We will also be giving our broadcast partners increased flexibility to avoid untimely breaks in the action. For example, we know how annoying it is when we come back from a commercial break, kick off, and then cut to a commercial again. I hate that too. Our goal is to eliminate*it.

    We also know that you feel there are too many elements in the broadcast that aren't relevant to the play on the field. With our partners, we will be looking to instead focus on content that is most complementary and compelling to you–whether that is analysis, highlights or stories about our*players.

    All of these changes are meant to give you more of what you want: a competitive game with fewer interruptions and distractions from the*action.

    There is much more work to do in the coming seasons as we continue to listen and learn. But these positive changes are intended to create a better experience for you, our*fans.

    We hope that you will continue to give us feedback on how we can*improve.

    Thank you for all that you do for our players, our teams and our*game.

    Well it is April 1st and a bit early to determine if this will work but the Vikings say Teddy Bridgewater will be ready for the first game of the season.

    I saw on Twitter that the jets signed Kaepernik. But it was April 1st so I'm not sure if I believe it.

    That's a pretty quick recovery from "may never play again..."

    The Jets aren't worried... They have put their fans through a lot worse than a twitter attack and came out the other end.

    Agreed. And, given his health in recent years, it seems like a good time.

    The deal is not done yet but if that's what Marshawn wants, good for him. I love that guy and will never forget what he did for Seattle. Played his guts out every single down.

    Until they move to Vegas. That has disaster written all over it.

    If memory serves, you and I were both at the first IRL race at LVMS. The place was packed, lines of cars, success! A year later, the place was half empty and not long after that, the IRL was gone. NASCAR was strong for a while but they are failing, too.

    I don't see how the Vegas Raiders are going to sell out their new stadium over the long haul. I have similar concerns about adding a second team in LA.
