    She is nothing more than a parrot for the organization. In no way does she deserve to call herself a journalist.

  3. Caldwell signs extension

    All four of the coaches that Azzurri listed are having greater success with (except Philly) lesser talent at starting QB. To answer my own question, yes, I want Caldwell fired. This team looks ill-prepared to start games time and time again. They start slow, fall behind early and then scramble to catch up. Rinse-wash-repeat week after week. He’s had two offensive coordinators and the offense still stalls and stagnates far too often. He’s helped Stafford cut down on his INT to TD ratio, but it seems the hasn’t helped the guy get the ball in the endzone more frequently. Add onto that, we have the face that we already know Caldwell is not a good game manager as a coach and continues to make bad decisions and out right coaching blunders during the course of a game. As for my list of candidates to replace Caldwell. This is my early top 10 candidate pool . . . 1. John Harbaugh –Head Coach, Baltimore Ravens (I would trade a draft pick for him if the Ravens would entertain it) 2. Darrell Bevel – Offensive Coordinator, Seattle Seahawks 3. Brian Kelly – Head Coach, Notre Dame 4. Paul Chryst – Head Coach, Wisconsion 5. David Shaw – Head Coach, Stanford 6. Josh McDaniels – Offensive Coordinator, New England Patriots 7. Pat Shurmur – Offensive Coordinator, Minnesota Vikings 8. Matt Patricia – Defensive Coordinator, New England Patriots 9. Kris Richard – Defensive Coordinator, Seattle Seahawks 10. Teryl Austin

    Do you fire Caldwell at season's end if he fails to make the playoffs? If yes, whose your guy to be the next head coach?

    That is one of those unwritten rules. You may target the injury of a player, but you don't talk about it publicly. I can imagine Koetter will be getting a fine and/or suspension of some kind if indeed Stafford's hand gets injured during the course of the game.

    The Silverdome didn't implode correctly . . . Another SOL moment!

    It was all Jimmy D, Scotty, Hakan/Euro Scouts, etc. Ken Holland is a complete fraud. He deserves next to no credit for the teams sustained success. He has proven, and then some, that he can't replicate success.

    How bad does it have to get before this clown Holland gets fired?
  10. Silverdome Memories

    I was in marching band in high school over at Plymouth-Canton and so I have lots of fond memories competing in the MCBA (Michigan Competing Band Association) state championship competition. I was in the drumline at Plymouth-Canton. We were Flight 1 (similar to the MHSAA Division 1) champions all four years that I was in band. Playing at the Silverdome was the pits for those of us in drumline because the acoustics were god awful and the sounds just ricocheted off the dome. Us band folk nicknamed it "The Thunderdome" because the acoustics and reverberation were so awful. Trying to keep in time with the band was a nightmare at times given the reverberation around the dome. Ford Field is a waaaaaaaaaaay better place to play, let me tell you. Much better acoustical quality at Ford Field versus the Silverdome. In 1999 we did a show called "Thought Crime: Music for an Orrwellian Era" based off of George Orwell's book 1984. Senior year we did a show based off of the Matrix. I couldn't find our Silverdome show from states online, but found the national performance we did at the old RCA Dome in Indianapolis.

    Would you trade Eli Manning's Super Bowl wins for Stafford's marginally better stats? Would you trade those two seasons in which Manning was solid at the right time, helped his team win playoff games, and win two championships for the seven full, healthy seasons of Stafford?
  12. Lions @ Ravens 1pm (est) FOX

    Stafford has a slightly higher career completion %, career QBR and career TD/INT ratio. So if that's your only measure, he wins the argument. However, Eli Manning's teams have won the division and thanks to him getting hot at the right time, won two Super Bowls. I'll take Manning's career over Stafford's if it means I get two championships and a division title over someone else being slightly better statistically.

    I'll take a QB who gets hot at the right time and wins Super Bowls over a guy who chokes in Dallas.

    I think the game comes down to two things: turnovers and how are offense performs in the first half. As was mentioned prior, Baltimore's defense creates points and if Stafford or Abdullah develop a case of fumbliitis, intermixed with another slow start on offense, we're going to be toast. If we can manage to protect the football and come out with an offense that doesn't resemble a person with narcolepsy and I think we can win. It was cute (for a while) watching this team stage late game rally after rally to coax out a win. Now these slow starts on offense are catching up and killing us. Cooter, Caldwell, Stafford need to get it together offensively in the first half.
