Bledsoe may be considered old school, but it is the school most quarterbacks attend, including Manning. They're almost clones, ... They're that similar in their style and how they play the game. I don't think the game has changed from the time Drew was drafted until Eli was drafted.
But when you get into a situation where you can acquire a proven leader, a proven quality player, an unselfish player, a guy who taken a team to the Super Bowl, I think you do it.
These guys know how to pick themselves up and regroup, and that's in large part, because of the leadership on that team,
A labor strike will tear away a lot of the good things going for this league.
I know how much the coach puts into it. Everybody in Kansas City understands the work ethic of the man. You just don't walk away from that and not take a piece of it with you.
One of the things I noticed more in this draft than in any recent drafts was the importance of the character issue. Players who had baggage, like Justice, fell much farther than his talent dictated. But a lot of coaches didn't want to take the chance.
I just hope that's enough, ... because the Eagles have a lot of things working against them now, too.
The city of Wildwood has been fantastic in helping us and supporting this event. This is a small way of the Soul saying thanks to our fans.
To go to the next level, you have to be special, and I look for those special qualities in those players, those qualities that I think will translate to the NFL.
I think A.J. is a little slower in processing information. Gus has more experience and playing time he's a little quicker at reading defenses and getting the ball out. But A.J. has all the tools to assimilate more as time goes on.
We had a very exhaustive, extensive search for the guy that is going lead our football team over the next few years. We spent about two months in an in-depth interview process, and Bret came out with flying colors. We are absolutely thrilled that he is our head coach.
As I learn more and more about the six-year extension of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, it's obvious to me that NFL owners understood that they were going to get a new deal done at all costs.
I thought I really liked him coming out. I saw an upside. But I don't see the growth you like to see in a young quarterback, decision-making-wise and throwing-wise.
The Jets seem to be a franchise in freefall.
Now I'm seeing those safeties sitting in the 14, 15 area a good 5-yard difference. They (the safeties) don't have respect for the deep game. Consequently the windows to throw into become smaller.
Positive thinking is the key to success in business, education, pro football, anything that you can mention. I go out there thinking that I'm going to complete every pass.
The challenge coaches face is replacing players they were counting on to be major pieces of a puzzle. In a lot of cases, there is just no way to make the necessary adjustments.
He has a difficult time extending the play when the receivers are covered, and then he makes bad decisions. When Joey moves, he isn't seeing the field with clarity.
It's really basic stuff at this point that they have to learn to do better. It's one-on-one, combination blocking stuff that they have to do.
The heartbeat of a football team is the quarterback position and I think everyone who has any intelligence about the game understands you must have consistency at that position to be a championship team.
I've addressed this before, and I'll say it again: The league has to take a long, hard look at full-time officials. The officiating has been inconsistent all season long.
A little more movement of the defensive side of the ball, some rules that will be unnoticed, but a big rule will be allowing the jack linebacker to move out of the box sideline to sideline.
I love to see Favre playing his best football, and if his mind his right, he'll probably have a fine season.
People may want to call it the Moss factor or whatever they want, but there is no doubt in my film study, the vertical stretch that Randy brought that offense is sorely missed right now. When I look at the tape from last year with Moss in that lineup, you
I'm a bit surprised that the Raiders turned to Art Shell to be their new head coach, not because Shell isn't a good head coach - he had success before as the Raiders' head coach - but because he's been away from the game so long and the game has changed a lot in those years.
We have a lot of rule changes. I am part of the competition committee. We spent a lot time evaluating the game, how do we make the game better for our fans.
Not like that other club up in New York that only has one award a year.
He only had to make one or two plays a game, and he could play to that defense. Not to denigrate the job he did there, because he did a terrific job.
Quarterbacks make a big difference in the playoffs. With Rex Grossman, the Bears are a team that can conceivably beat you on offense as well as defense, whereas I don't know that you could have said that about Jim Miller.
