  1. What I'm saying is, I don't expect Blank to fire Quinn mid season, especially now since the bye week passed, but if he felt he wouldn't know how to place an interim for either job Quinn held, this would eliminate half the problem. Again, I don't see it happening, but to the OP, it does not help save Quinn to have someone performing better in the DC job for now.
  2. This won't save Quinn. If anything it will make him easier to replace IF the defense does well the rest of the season.
  3. The big thing is, if the D has a good rest of the year, it will make it much easier to fire Quinn. Won't have to be so concerned about replacing OC and DC at the same time. Way too soon to tell though.
  4. He's going to end up retiring during the bye in disgrace. I don't see him as a disgrace mind you, but he'll retire from football mid-season and feel he let everyone down. This is going to be much worse than him being released last off-season. Thanks for everything you did for us Money Matt, I hope someday to shake your hand and thank you in person.
  5. I can't help but think the success of his soccer team has kept him distracted enough to not have his head screwed on straight with this team. Flame me, but it's how I feel.
  6. No, Matt's hamstring gave up on him last season. He was done before they ever cut him.
  7. I loved the man, still do, but letting him go last year was the right thing to do. You couldn't beat it in the brains of the uneducated fans that it was time for him to retire or at least for us to move on. Know when it's over man.
  8. I am SO stealing this.
  9. Just once, I want to see him throw the microphone, kick over the podium and start swinging at the air with balled up fists. Never going to happen, just same old corporate manager type cliches.
  10. I was so thankful to get rid of Koetter, Knapp, Sarkisian and porn Stache DC. Now we got 2 of them back. Makes no sense whatsoever. I know we can't help the fact that we had no say in losing Shanahan, but good god bringing back failure is unconscionable.
  11. I have no argument for any of these points. You are correct across the board. Throw on top that we brought back Greg Knapp, another failed OC that we got rid of once. We had a lot of wins under all of these guys, but epic collapses, and many games that were barely won, always had to squeak them out which ultimately leads to a team on the verge of collapse.
  12. 1975. I still have the ticket stubs and the news article.
  13. My first ever live NFL game, Fulton County Stadium. It was the night that Humphrey suffered what was believed to be a career ending injury. Everyone was devastated. I still have the newspaper clipping from the next day.
  14. Aints got away with at least three major non-calls. Gifted a TD when Breesus pulled his whole body from center drawing an offsides and 1st & G. I consider it justice.
  15. Every blatant non-call against the taints, no comment. Buck and Aikman even heaving praise on Bree's for his obvious false start moving his whole body away from center drawing an offsides gifted them a TD. Any non-calls on LA, Buck beats it to death and calls in Pierera to go on and on and on. Coach Lee Harvey Oswald busting a spring on the sideline made my entire season.
  16. Screw Dat! The world just became a little better place today.
  17. Refs made sure they gave a call back to 'ol coach Lee Harvey Oswald, didn't make a difference in the world. Somebody must have missed a payment. HAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAAAAAA
  18. Saint Ray, Y'all are who we thought you were! Come back with the ol' 28-3 all you want to, don't care. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAhAHAhAHA!!!!!!
  19. Rankin Smith, Marion Campbell.....................I had buried those memories. Until now.
  20. Met Fralic outside of Fulton County Stadium during the 1987 players strike. All of the players and their families were picketing outside the stadium on game day. We went around getting autographs, and came up to Fralic. My brother in law asked for his autograph, and he asked if we were going into the game. He said yes, and Fralic said "then I'm not signing." We were like WTF? And he said that we were paying to see those "scabs" and he refused to support that. My brother in law (while looking way up at him) said "Hey man, We are season ticket holders. We paid to see YOU and you're standing out here." After a tense moment of silence, Bill took our stuff and signed.
  21. He slung Matt to the ground blatantly more than once way after the ball was thrown, one time spun him all the way around and threw him, then just walked away Scott free. I don't care one way or the other about the Ravens, and I respect his talent, but sorry that is low class.
  22. I said THUGGS, as in Terrell Thuggs, cause he acted like one.
  23. You are kidding I hope. R.I.P Denny Green.
  24. It's that simple. Turn the TV down, sync Wes and Dave and listen to the insight the locals provide. They know the players and coaches, and they know what they are doing and not doing well. And especially Arch will not pull punches. If it's a bad coaching decision, a bad throw or as is most of the time, horrible protection forcing ill timed and ill placed throws, they call it. Matt was getting pounded AGAIN all day, and I saw Thuggs lay him out after the throw several times, never called once. O'line is trash.
  25. I think with two games in 4 days, they've figured he's much more important to have vs. Saints. Especially being a prime time division game and his history with N.O. Absence vs Cowpokes will continue to be big.
