I am ok with how Idzik is going about FA for the most part. I however feel Rex will be givin no talent again this year and will be fired. I believe this is part of Idziks plan. He will use Rex as the building coach and then bring in a new head coach when we have more talent that fits his mindset. Much like Dungy to Gruden.
Posted 5 Mar 2014As I was awatching NFLN this morning they were talkin about the kicking changes. This got me thinking about what other plays are throw away plays and what could we do to change it. Here are some random thoughts.
I like the proposed 43 yard extra point. Cuurently after a TD I will go to the kitchen or bathroom or whatever. This would keep me in my chair much like a 3 point try. I also thought having a tiered system would be cool. Lets say a 15 yard is 1 point a 40 is 2 points and anything over 50 is 3. Might be to much for some fans to understand the complexities and depth of the situation though.
Also doing away with taking a knee could be interesting. If you do not get the ball back to the line of scrimage the clock will stop. I understand there is an element of increased injury but this is another worthless play that is dead time.

QuoteINDIANAPOLIS -- Steelers GM Kevin Colbert thinks this year's draft class is the deepest he's seen, but it's also the most immature class he's evaluated in his 30 years in the profession.
"Experience has told us that a lot of these younger players aren't ready for this," Colbert said Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine. "It's a huge leap. I don't think a lot of them understand that until they actually get on a playing field and see the increase in the quality of play."
He's hinted before that this year's class is heavy with players unready for the NFL, but this was strongest critique yet of the group.
"We have to be prepared for more player development-type programs or maybe enhancing your player development so as to get the most out of these younger players."
With a record number of underclassmen declaring for this year's draft, it won't be a surprise to hear other personnel executives share similar views during the week in Indy.
Many of the underclassmen, including Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel, are among the highest-rated prospects available this year, and the juniors and redshirt sophomores that declared will be getting a particularly close look from teams at the combine. Given their shorter careers, there's less game tape available to evaluate than there is for seniors, and that means more work during the draft process for general managers to find out just what they're getting in a younger prospect.

Quote-- Former New York Jets coach Eric Mangini is back in the coaching ranks.
Mangini, who spent last season as an offensive consultant for the San Francisco 49ers, will coach their tight ends in 2014, the team announced Thursday at the NFL scouting combine.
Only a few years ago, Mangini was deemed one of the top young coaches in the NFL. He did a terrific job with the Jets in 2006 (remember his "Man-genius" cameo on "The Sopranos" series?), but it fell apart in 2007 and 2008 and he was fired by owner Woody Johnson. Mangini ended up behind the camera, of all places, working as an ESPN studio analyst, but it's obvious he still has the coaching bug.
Some might say he's re-starting at the bottom, and maybe he is, but he's only 43 and still has a passion for the job. There's nothing wrong with that.
