    Plane spotting

    G-JMBS Geordie - James Maddison Bin Salman. In the bag.
  2. Don't think this is really true, they're only going to pull him from the team if a deal was imminent and I don't think there's any suggestion that that's the case. FWIW I reckon we might make a last play for Maddison but it'll be dependent on Leicester accepting more or less what we've been offering all along. Think we're happy to wait for the summer if Leicester stand firm.

    Anyway, Broncos seem to have completely shat the shorts on the HC search. Leaked that they were focused on Demeco Ryans, IMO largely to stick it to Sean Payton in the press as they were confident Ryans would say yes. However, the Texans apparently also want Demeco and the word is that he's going to take that job instead. In the meantime, Dan Quinn took his name out of consideration because he thought they were going for Demeco and now the relationship with Payton isn't good either. Rumours that they might open up the process and basically start over. Have seen it suggested in earnest that Mike Shanahan could be an option

    I mean we have several Broncos fans in the thread and nobody cared about my megaposts.

    I think it'll largely come down to how well both teams can run the ball. Spagnuolo is as good as anyone at finding ways to generate pressure with stunts and simulated pressures as well as plenty of blitzing. If the Bengals can run the ball like they did against Buffalo that'll negate a lot of that and Burrow should be able to have a lot of success. Similarly for the Chiefs, they really need to get some run game going or the Bengals will come after Mahomes and you have to figure his escapability isn't going to be anywhere near where it is usually. I'd expect a lot of very quick passes in the Chiefs gameplan too, think they'll have some success with it too as Reid is incredible at getting guys open quickly.
  7. It tells the story of the first game, which was very much fine as a standalone story.

    Funny that he's leaking that the day after reports came out that Demeco Ryans is the frontrunner. He was leaking last week that he was very impressed by the Broncos' ownership, now that they seem to be looking in another direction all of a sudden he has concerns. Weird saga, this. A few months ago it was widely reported that he wasn't interested in the Denver job. Seemed like he wanted one of the LA jobs and a lot of people thought both of those would come open. He then took an interview with Denver and seemed to be the heavy favourite this time last week. On Monday it was reported he was flying to Denver for a 2nd interview, which Denver then delayed. Not sure what to make of it all. Part of me thinks he was always going back to TV and wanted to just get some exposure and interview practice in and hope there were more attractive spots available next year. Also possible that he just was asking for the absolute moon in terms of salary and organisational control and Denver had concerns. Or maybe they just flat out liked Demeco better. Either way, I don't think he's come out of this looking well. Most of the teams he interviewed with didn't pursue him any further and the one team that looked like they were the most in on him publicly pivoted away from him and left him with his dick in his hand.

    Seems like possibly all the teams that have interviewed Sean Payton... don't want him? Think the Broncos were most interested in him but rumour is that they're put off by a combination of the draft compensation that will be required, some of the people he wants to bring in (Ryan Pace at GM, most known for being shite in that role for the Bears) and the way he's been using his friend Colin Cowherd to push his narrative in the press. They also are rumoured to have been absolutely blown away by Demeco Ryans in the interview and he seems to be gaining a lot of traction. They finished their first round of interviews last Friday and as of now haven't scheduled any second round interviews. Ryans is the only candidate they can't interview again yet, not until after the NFC Championship Game. Seems they're stalling for something and that seems the most likely thing. Either that or they're trying to play hardball with the Saints by pretending they're going another direction and getting them to drop their trade asking price. Fuck knows, I'd be happy with either.

    Realising you didn't have the right brush and carefully selecting the trowel instead Do agree that you could make some extremely watchable YT content though, that voice could talk a nun off.

    Could you not have generated more of the white paint? That seemed to be working?

  14. Running a story that literally everyone else is also reporting as an exclusive is ballsy, have to say
