I put zewro stock in mock drafts (mainly because they simply aren’t going to happen with “those players” at “those spots” going to “those teams”) but if “this one” happened, I’d be ok with it

Iowa’s Caitlin Clark was named Naismith National Player of the Year on Wednesday, beating out 2022 winner Aliyah Boston and fellow finalists Maddy Siegrist (Villanova) and Elizabeth Kitley (Virginia Tech).

Clark won the award two days before her Hawkeyes are slated to play Boston’s South Carolina Gamecocks in the Final Four.

Think of this. And don’t tell Howie Roseman.

A 5-TE set. Run QB sneaks all the time. 3 yards and a cloud of dust. It’s like history repeating itself.

no can do: big Red has prohibited QB sneaks for the foreseeable future

however, I can see 4 TE sets, a lot of “chip block” (block and release) and flooding the middle every which way … Mahomes’ll find someone, somewhere

The current price tag for a single F-22 Raptor is approximately $143 million. However, additional costs are associated with operating and sustaining the aircraft, which can add up.

So is Andy the GOAT of coaches?
Two different teams to the SB
Two different teams to 4 consecutive Conference Championships
Two different teams to 100+ wins
All during the FA era.
Belichick? Many SBs, but one team, and only with one QB. He did have to navigate FA, too
Lombardi? With no FA, once he had the best team, all he had to do was win before they got too old
Landry? Similar to Lombardi
Andy has done it with more moving pieces than anyone.

You might have inspired me to do one of my famous lists – Shula, Halas, and Bill Walsh are names that jump to mind that should have been mentioned. Good arguments for Andy – add that McNabb was a good, but not great quarterback. Disagree about Landry – his teams spanned the sixties, seventies, and eighties – before, during, and after Staubach.

NovaChiefs
Reply to  EAFOX
03/29/2023 8:53 pm

True, but he never made the SB after 1979. So while he coached during the early FA period, he wasn’t as successful as he had been before it.
Walsh is the only one you mentioned that I’d consider. Halas was important, but mostly because he meant so much to the Bears and NFL history.

Trade off proposal for Roger – the players will accept playing two Thursdays IF you expand the rosters to 60 and allow everyone to be active, eliminate OT games except for the playoffs, pay players 50% of the money that is not guaranteed in a contract should they be cut, and make Patrick Mahomes – King of the NFL.
