    It reeks, but given a number of other black coaches got HC gigs this year, the NFL can say "see, we're not racist at all", despite the overall process being incredibly flawed.

    Would also note that it's very rare for guys who get fired from a head coaching position (especially their first one) to get another HC job right away. Those guys are generally expected to go elsewhere and be a coordinator for a few years before trying again.

    Him not getting a job as a DC does seem to suggest that he's at least been partially blacklisted.

    I was wanting Flores back in NE, ideally as the DC but I guess BB is comfortable with Jerrod Mayo and Steve having the reins there.
    I think the key thing is he got the Dolphins punching above their weight with a weak roster. Without the pending racism lawsuit he'd be top of a few franchises lists. Id certainly have him over Old Man Time Carroll in Seattle.

    Russell Wilson to the Broncos is as good as a done deal if reports are to be believed.

    3 players, 2 1st rounders, 2 2nd rounders and a couple of other picks.

    Apparently, someone paid £0.5m for Brady’s “last touchdown ball last week”!

    Almost impossible to predict where he will end up. So many teams in the middle of the draft need an edge rusher. Denver, the Giants, the Eagles (who have 3 picks in the first round)??

    Baltimore Ravens have picked him up in the 2nd round


    NFL Draft 2022: David Ojabo joins Baltimore Ravens in second round - BBC Sport

    David Ojabo has been selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the second round of the 2022 NFL draft in Las Vegas.
    The 21-year-old linebacker, who was raised in Aberdeen after moving from Nigeria aged seven, had been projected as a first-round pick before tearing an Achilles tendon in March.

    The injury meant the Michigan University star was passed over on day one of the NFL's annual event.
    But his slide stopped when he was taken with the 45th pick on Friday.

    Yeah, I was sad to see he had a serious injury at just the wrong time. Pretty sure he would have been a top ten pick otherwise. I’ll be watching his career at the Ravens, a team with some heritage at the linebacker position.

    Seattle Tampa Bay in the Allianz in Berlin would be amazing 13th November. First NFL game in Germany. The teams involved could be 0-8 and 8-0 by then but still…

    We can't not...it's as much of a tradition these days as a new Hibs managerial appointment!

    Went online to buy tickets only to find myself at the back of a 390,000 queue!

    Needless to say, it was sold out but BIG SURPRISE the resellers were punting tickets for £500 and upwards from 10:30 onwards.

    These pricks really need dealt with. It should be illegal to sell a ticket on for more than the face value.

    Kept trying and got 1 saints ticket at 8.30 tonight.

    Bit like derby day theres always 1 or 2 single seats flying about well after the sold out sign goes up.

    Think it will be my 9th saints game in total. 2nd versus the vikings.

    Really looking forward to seeing the new stadium

    I watched the Nebraska v Northwestern game last night, it was played at the Aviva stadium in Ireland. It was a pretty good one to watch but a little reminder as to why I stopped watching CFB. Unlike the NFL it seems CFB haven't adapted the game to make it run a bit smoother and take less time. The game lasted about 4 hours, I would say most NFL games take about 3 these days?

    Anyway it was fun but I don't want my full Saturday night taken over.

    Think it was because of all the pomp and ceremony of it running on TV as a special broadcast.

    When I was going to Stanford games regularly pre-Covid, 3 hours was the maximum time taken as there are far fewer commercial breaks during the NCAA broadcasts.

    Yeah they treated it similar to a play off game or something similar so kind of get the additional ad breaks. I'll keep my eye out to see what's on but the week 1 fixtures are usually a bit dull due to the way they schedule things. Oregon V Georgia seems to be the stand out as I won't stay up to watch the Notre Dame v Ohio St game.

    Is it not just ND games they show? They showed them last season.

    Jets sucking as usual. Way to blow any optimism for the new season out the way 💩.

    It’s not inconceivable the Lions have a decent season. A very narrow loss today against a strong Philly team that look the pick of their division and a stronger roster than is normal in motor city. Definite positives. And that running back looks sensational.

    It might well be, It will be a long season for ND going by that result.

    Poor start for GB, had a similar one last season but don't have Adams to fall back on.
