Doug Marrone in Jaxsonville.....A really Stupid head coach
this man Marrone is really something else. how in the hell can he stick with Bortles when absolutely no one else in football sees a quality player in Bortles.
that is one of the most stunning things I have ever seen in football: a head coach builds a very strong team and keeps as his QB the weakest of all potentials when he had any number of chances to bring in a quality player
there is ONE WEAL LINK on the Jaguars and it is the QB. and it is because the HC insists on that players who is just ordinary at best

Todd Bowles in New York with the Jets....
I don't know about Bowles but I thought when he let Teddy Bridgewater go and gave the Job to the rookie Darnold, he was buying trouble for himself. so said so done..is happening exactly.
the Rookie is not able with the job. its too early for him. I thought he would go through the season with Bridgewater, let the kid season on the bench and with spot play and give him the job next year if he developed and won it in the pre-season
now the Jets cant even score on Buffalo with the kid at QB
I really thought Bowles was smarter than the way things turned out this year with the Jets. maybe he is following his GM..doing what the GM directs him to do. but this Jets team is the shits. what they do makes little sense
another stupid decision is playing out as it should..in Detroit with the Lions. the Lions should not be beat by the Chicago Bears....
the bears were down in the dumps, beaten up and a sour team while Detroit was up under Jim Caldwell. last year Detroit missed the playoffs by percentage points after making it the year before
the reason Detroit did not make the playoffs easy is because the front office refuses to get the Lions the completion players they need..a quality running back, a top receiver or two etc. not more than thee holes to plug.
but for some absolutely inexplicable reason the Lions never ever get a good running back. year after year that lack is pointed out but Detroit never solves it
these are the things that stun about a league that is the biggest in the USA a trillion dollar league..in which every team comes in over a billion dollars in value. the owners, bathing in money put a salary cap on themselves and don't care how it affects team construction and performance
so you have a team like Detroit never able to solve its personnel problems. and yet there are these general managers who when they get hired come in to clean house and build a team that will go down in history as the team that they built.
this is what the new manager in Detroit did..fired Caldwell when all he had to do was get him a few players to have a great chance of going to the super bowl. so he brought in his own man who has taken a winning team into the region of a 50% winner at best
but that's the team he has built the newish GM and his new coach..a team twice as bad as the team he was given
