Jeanne Hurney and Marty Hurney were divorced in January 2014. They had been married since 1988. In late December, Jeanne Hurney filed a motion to receive more alimony, given Hurney’s return to the Panthers. Jim Warren, a Charlotte attorney who represented Marty Hurney through part of his divorce case, said the allegations “obviously are not based on acts of domestic violence. No reasonable person could have feared for her bodily harm.”

Warren also said the complaint “would appear to have been done at a time to inflict the most damage to Marty.”

Quote
The judge who heard Jeanne Hurney’s complaint said there was no evidence Hurney had committed acts of domestic violence against her. District Judge Ronald Chapman refused to issue an immediate restraining order against Marty Hurney. Chapman set a Feb. 16 hearing on the complaint.

Great world we live in...if the genders were reversed you think a woman’s being put on ‘leave’ due to uncorroborated allegations? I hope he’s allowed to sue for punitive damages when her bullshtein is exposed.

Which unfortunately is exactly what you want if you're a Patriots fan. I mean this is the exact same thing Belichick did to the Jets.

Under Kraft this team is excellent on the field, but in every aspect they go right up to the line of professionalism and legality and sometimes sneak across that line. They give themselves every advantage, even if it means being shady dirtbags.

Josh McDaniels' agent told him he was making mistake (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000915202/article/josh-mcdaniels-agent-told-him-he-was-making-mistake)

Quote
Garafolo reported on NFL Network's Good Morning Football that even McDaniels' agent, Bob LaMonte, told the OC that he's making perhaps the biggest professional mistake of his career by backing out of this Colts job at this point, according to sources informed of the talks between McDaniels and his agent.

You think?  Hoodie actually took the job with the Jets and bailed like 8 hours later. Seems to have worked out well for him.

McDaniel, who I'm not convinced is the next big thing in coaching, hadn't actually taken the job yet. If he had, I might have a different opinion on it, but all they had in place I guess was a verbal agreement on things. 

I'm not sure I blame him either. Indy is a wreck. Irsay is a hot mess and their QB's arm is being held together with JB Weld and bubble gum. 

Besides, he had to get some sort of signal from Kraft that he's the next Patriots head coach. Will that be in 2018 or shortly after? Who knows?  But I think he's basically getting the Jason Garrett treatment at this point.

Verbal deal is still a deal in the NFL. When you see deals reported, it's all verbal deals. Going back at that point is considered a major eff you. It's like if March rolls around and the Chiefs decide to keep Alex Smith.

Title: Re: Around the NFL - 2018
Post by: hbionic on February 08, 2018, 09:06:29 PM
According to my Vikes-loving friend, Keenum is really good, but has a weak arm and makes mistakes when pressured (like most QB's) but his mistakes seem to be really bad. Apparently, he's been one bad game away from being benched all season.

Bradford, Keenum, and Bridgewater are all free agents. They're neither as good or as healthy as Cousins.


The worst thing is you know someone out there's going to be dumb enough to give Bradford more money.

because dawk is going in and the eagles won the super bowl so they will bitch about it not being the birds

im not sure about the champs being in it....i would think the champs could be in if they have a huge player being inducted...but either way it wont stop people from whining about it

i feel like if the eagles didn't win the SB, the dawk/TO combo would have put them in over urlakker.  but since they will most likely have a big opening weekend game anyway, they don't want to overkill the eagles.

also yes who gives a shtein that's two minutes longer than i've ever thought about the hall of fame game.

I actually don't care. Obviously, if the Phillies win means more to you, that's a you thing and visceral reaction to it being the first Philly win in a good bit. But the quality of the competition and the storylines behind the championships aren't really comparable. The Eagles win had unbelievable storylines. I loved watching the Phillies win, but I hated that it was against the Rays (and even more when they were playing in that stupid dome, which sucks for baseball).

I loved watching the Phillies win, but I hated that it was against the Rays (and even more when they were playing in that stupid dome, which sucks for baseball).

I'm a 4 for 4 guy. I'll admit, when a teams doing better I pay closer attention but I watch every game even if it's just on as background noise. Would I root harder for the Flyers if they were on a Cup run than I would for the Eagles if they were 4-12? Hell yeah.

The Phillies win was a slow build of young talent who developed and took steps to winning the WS. That it was against the Rays never bothered me. The Rays were a quality team and Maddon is the best coach in the league. It was a relief the drought was over and that whole run was amazing but the Phillies also won a WS in 1980. I was only 5, but old heads still remember the win.

Philly is a sports town. But more than anything Football drives the city.

Let's be honest, even the most optimistic Eagles fan (Jay) didn't think the Birds were winning the SB. Once we saw what Wentz could do we were hopeful, once he went down it was back to doom. So the Eagles winning the SB really came out of nowhere. It caught us all off guard because it was so unexpected. Whereas the Phillies was a slow buildup and we could believe a WS victory was in the future...but the Eagles not so much.

The Phillies run took the city by storm. The difference is when they're bad fans aren't as invested. On the flipside Eagles fans are 24/7 nuts about the team because bottom line is Philly is a Football city above all else. People can rank their passion for their teams however they like, but the Birds winning their first SB with a back up QB against the Pats is about as Philly as it gets.

I'm thrilled with both championships. To me it's silly to rank which one was better because I love both teams.

My first love sports wise was the Phils.  I won’t deny that.  But the Eagles winning the Super Bowl dwarfs every other sports event I’ve experienced combined.  It was better than I ever dreamed it would be, and believe me, I have a hell of an imagination. 

Being in Philly when it happened?  I can die happy now.

the phillies WS was the first team in any sport that i've rooted for who won anything.  college/pro/etc.  and i was in the stadium for it. 

i'm probably unfairly discounting it because the older i get the less i care about baseball (and hockey), and i remember between 2-3am just playing queen on loop in '08 and what that meant, but the eagles have been the most important sports team in my life since i learned how to talk.  in fifth grade my teacher was a cowboys fan and we used to get in arguments before and after class - that was the year tommy hutton botched the snap against dallas on mnf and i spent the rest of the night hyperventilating breathing into a paper bag w/my parents telling me i wasn't going to be allowed to watch the eagles anymore if that's how i reacted.  getting to experience them win with my brother, and mom, and dad who is in his 70s, and who shed a tear during kelce's speech just meant something more to me and it was a week i won't forget.

its not a factor if your favorite team is the eagles because thats end of discussion

but if its even close age matters a lot when it comes to to 08 phillies and eagles sb....if your sports watching life (i dont count ages 0-8ish) was only 15 years when the phillies won its not nearly as droughty as if you had been watching sports for 30 years before the 08 phillies

also the longer time passes on and other philly teams win post phillies 08 the less people remember how truly horrifying 83 to 08 was

thats why im pretty sure no championship will ever top 08 phillies for me....thinking about that drought ending still gives me goose bumps to this day...and i say that as the captain of the tampa rain delay anticlimactic win team

Lol I'm in the same boat as Legendz...I was in 4th grade I think for the Hutton play.

The Phillies were my first chip for any professional team I've cheered for, and I was in the city the night it happened. That experience is forever with me. Being around so many happy people in Philly that night was just amazing.

But the Eagles were my first love. My family is nuts for the Eagles, as you have all seen. I've been dressing up in Eagles gear and going to my Uncles house since before he had that addition built on to his house and we were doing it as mostly family gathering in his rec room. We were painting our faces kelly green and silver every Sunday. I cried when they won. I didn't when the Phillies did. Though I do think part of why I didn't cry for the Phils was just legitimate shock and not knowing how to react because i had never seen a championship before in this town.

Ok, IGY, I'm stuck here. Since our teams are special and personal to us, here's this.

I went to game 7 of the World Series hoping to riot with the city...only to be punched in the balls. There's a deep passion for the boys in blue and I know I would have gone ape shtein if they Dodgers would have won. I was 12 when the Dodgers won the world series, and remember where I was watching Gibby's homer.

But, this Eagles win has been something special. I'm not from Philly but its always come down to this:

If I the Dodgers never one won another championship during my lifetime, I could still rest easy. But I would have been turning in my grave if I never witnessed the Birds win one. And I love the Dodgers. It's been 30 years now since the Dodgers have won, and I've been an Eagles fan since highschool only.

Gun to the head, I guess this Eagles win was more special than any Dodgers win could have been.

Growing up in NJ I was a Yankee fan but followed the Phillies some too. Lefty, Schmidt, Luzinski, etcetera. They came thiiis close to winning the WS a few times in the 80s but came up short until I think 1980.

I remember that botched snap by Hutton, I watched that game and couldn't believe he tried to run it in. Of course, I couldn't believe Romo bobbled a snap against Seattle and tried to run it in either.   :P

There's really no right or wrong way to handle a botched snap other than not botching the snap. Pick it up and run, bumble around and put it in place for the kicker...it doesn't matter. The timing is blown, the kicker is out of rhythm, the defense has an extra half second or so to try and block.
99% of the time you're farged either way.

They were already forced to pay Bortles $19 million or whatever on his previous contract because he’s injured. They would have cut him in a second if not for the injury. This allows them to reduce the cap hit.

It was $19M for one year and then he'd be gone.   It is interesting to me that the Jags would rather pay Bortles a hefty salary than roll the dice with Capt Kirk.  I wonder if other teams will follow suit?

I think the price might be too high for the Vikings (we can hope), but I don't think the Jets/Broncos/Cards would be averse to opening up the checkbook. And I think it actually makes sense for them to do so.

Jags were always going to have to dump other good players to get Cousins. Not sure they were ever truly in the market for him.

Carlos Hyde + the Duke is already a RB tandem most teams would envy. Tyrod can pick up yardage on the ground too. Can't rule them out but it's hard to consider that their greatest need. Plus it's the Browns, so it doesn't have to make sense.

I'm pretty tired of reading headlines and the like which go "...making _________  the highest paid _____ in the league."

Every new contract given becomes the new highest ever, day after day, week after week, year after year.  Unless the contract is so farging outrageous that it's subject is going to be the top paid for a long, long time, then being the highest paid is meaningless.  It's just going to be surpassed tomorrow or next Thursday.

Possibility 2: She was actually Tom Bensons' protector, as the rest of his family tried to take advantage of him in his senior years.

Probable: These are all awful people, including Tom.

Define "get their guy". They can get their guy, he could be a bust. If Wentz was a bust the Eagles would have been ass raped by the Browns.

Quote
The Eagles sent five draft picks to the Browns: the No. 8 pick in the first round, a third-round pick (77th overall) and a fourth-round pick (100th overall) in this year's draft, a first-round pick in 2017 and a second-round pick in 2018. Cleveland also sends a fourth-round pick in 2017 to the Eagles.

The Eagles moved from 8 to 2, the Jets are moving from 6 to 3. Revisionist history but the Eagles picked an elite franchise QB. They recouped a 1st and a 4th back in the trade and received a 4th back from the Browns. End of the day they only parted with a 2018 2nd round pick.

The question is what is more valuable. A 3rd round pick (the 4th is irrelevant since Cleveland the Eagles traded 4ths just on different years), a 2017 1st round pick, and a 2018 2nd round pick to move up 6 spots. Or 3 2nd round picks to move up 3.

Define "get their guy".

The price is such that all that matters is the pick. If he's a good franchise QB, this trade was excellent. If he's not, everyone involved will be fired within a few years. Which they would have been anyway if the team doesn't see big improvement.

Can't really criticize them when they are doing exactly what the Eagles did. Bring back the okay guy from the previous year (Bradford/McCown). Sign a questionable vet backup with some chance of upside (Daniel/Bridgewater), shoot the moon in the draft to ensure you get the guy you want. The Jets are aware of what they are giving up in this trade, and it's not some unthinkable amount, it's about right to get the #3.

The Cowboys revenue was about 2.18x the Panthers. If the valuation scales the same way, that’s about 5.5 billion.

If you look at where the Cowboys money comes from though, it’s not a pure function of having the most fans. It’s because Jerrah is a master of finding new ways for the team to generate revenue. He’s a shtein GM but he knows how to make money like no other owner. As a result, I think the team is worth more with Jones in charge than if he would sell it to some “normal” billionaire.

Phreak's boy Trevone Boykin is now available.

Quote
The Seattle Seahawks have released backup quarterback Trevone Boykin in the wake of a report that he's under investigation for alleged domestic violence.

The Seahawks announced Boykin's release Tuesday morning. The move came less than two hours after WFAA-TV in Dallas reported on its website that police in Mansfield, Texas are investigating Boykin following allegations from his girlfriend, Shabrika Bailey.

The woman told WFAA that Boykin attempted to choke her and broke her jaw in two places during an incident that occurred at his home last week. She said she blacked out while Boykin was attempting to choke her and then came to in a "puddle of blood on the kitchen floor."

The woman said Boykin drove her to Dallas Regional Medical Center in Mesquite, Texas and that he fled when hospital staff began questioning the two separately. The woman was airlifted to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas for further treatment because she was having trouble breathing and spent three days there, according to the report.

He's a crapshoot, like all of the QBs. He should be considered part of the elite QB group in this draft though, so getting him at 32 was a bargain. Best case, he can be their Deshaun Watson.

Injury and longevity concerns have devalued running QBs compared to the days football guys thought Kap and RGIII were revolutionizing the position. Think Jackson went later than he would have a few years ago, and obviously the presence of all those more traditional QBs hurt too.

Any fan of a team led by Joe Flacco should be excited by just about any first round QB pick.

Art Rooney of the Steelers said while it was not defined, he believes that raising a fist and linking arms during the playing of the anthem also would constitute disrespect of the anthem.

I think their viewpoint is that their window is Trubinsky's rookie contract, so push all the chips in now.

Formula to win is either have an elite QB, or a cheap game manager QB with an elite roster. You can't really have both unless you have an elite QB on his rookie contract like the Eagles. The Bears really have no choice but to assume that Trubinsky is at least game manager quality and to try to maximize the talent around him, before they either have to throw $20M a year at him or give up on him and start over.

Things can change with experience as we saw with our own Dougie P, but as of right now, Matt Patricia is the worst coach in the NFL. He is a farging disaster up there, and the Lions situation could spiral out of control rapidly.

Found this one entertaining.

James Harrison: Le'Veon Bell should return to Steelers, then fake injury to avoid games (http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/24801142/james-harrison-says-leveon-bell-return-pittsburgh-steelers-fake-injury-avoid-games)

Quote
"If I'm Le'Veon ... I'm coming back, what is it Nov. 13?" Harrison said, referring to the deadline Bell must report to the Steelers by in order to accrue the necessary service time to become a free agent in 2019. "I'm going to go in there, I'm gonna get my credit this season that I need to get and I'm going to do the best I can to get out of this season healthy.

"For me, I'd give you everything at practice. You'd see -- the cameras would see -- that I'm fine, I'm healthy. But come Saturday, 'Something ain't right. I can't play on Sunday.' Because if I go out here and I mess something up, I'm losing a lot of money."

NFL teams with 20-29 rushing attempts in a game since 2011
Average > 7.0 YPC: 17-30 record (.362)
Average < 3.0 YPC: 173-172 record (.501)

That's right, a higher win% for teams that don't even crack 3.0 YPC.

ESPN says the Chiefs-Broncos drew a 9.1 overnight rating, an increase of 8% compared to the 8.4 rating for the taterskins-Chiefs week 4 game in 2017.

NFL ratings were significant up over Week Four from last year.

i was told EXPLICITLY by various smart middle aged white males that ratings were down because of flags...the refs....goodell...roughing the passer penalties....too many illegal contact calls....anthem kneeling....the outrage over the outrage of anthem kneeling....

im sure the last few weeks of ratings data is BS and these smart white men are still correct

my specific troll is on people who latched on to ratings being down like last year and threw out just moronic reasons why (kneeling, flags, etc) in an attempt to double down on whatever was up their butt that particular day. ratings data for non entertainment programming wildly fluctuates and is highly dependent on a variety of outside and mitigating factors. drawing conclusions from one week or even one year doesnt mean or prove much of anything.

because of fantasy and to a lesser extent betting the nfl is bullet proof.....fans dont really like the product but they cannot get away from their fantasy teams no matter how bad it gets....the nfl's hardcore maga base wouldnt even walk away from fantasy football if every team in the league was kneeling during the anthem
