IrishLion - how big of a blow is Collins going down?

It hurts, but not nearly as bad as you would think... Collins hasn't been earning his contract, imo. His run blocking is fine, but his pass blocking grades have been below average. If he's not giving up a pressure, he's getting called for a penalty that he committed to avoid giving up a pressure. Plus, Hakeem Adeniji is their 6th man on the OL, and has quite a bit of experience starting at both OT spots for the Bengals since '20. He will step in and be serviceable enough to let Burrow do his thing.

The interior of the OL holding up is the bigger issue. Burrow can deal with outside pressure, between his field awareness and his mobility... it's interior pressure that freezes him. Thankfully Ted Karras (C) and Alex Cappa (RG) have been solid, and they have been able to work around rookie Cordell Volson (LG) being hot-and-cold.

Broncos head coach has been fired. Everyone saw this coming. They play was bad and seems like the locker room had problems.

That’s why hiring these coaches isn’t always a slam dunk.
They've been trash since the Kubiak Super Bowl. Hackett was a first time HC.

The GM George Paton the last two seasons bears some responsibility.

J.J. Watt is retiring at the end of the season. Next stop, Canton.

Great dude off of the field.
Yep, incredible player and person, on and off the field. It's crazy to look at his career stats and think he missed 42 games and still managed to do all of that.

It’s legit crazy that ND has like 5 featured TEs succeeding in the NFL right now.

This is bad. The NFL has a lot of worthless players. Hopefully he gets his. Let’s go karma.

Looks like more a symptom of the stupid celebration culture than him being aware of a hurt player next to him

Damar Hamlin was/is in cardiac arrest on the field. Based on the player’s faces, the outcome doesn’t look promising. 9 minutes is a long time. Sickening.

What is the 9 minutes in reference to? Not breathing? No pulse?

Hopefully it's a Christian Erikson outcome. Obviously, no idea what is going on with him but there is a lot going for him. Age, fitness, quick medical intervention, etc... Pray that he pulls out. So sad.

Genuinely not sure how there’s a path forward to playing this game. I even feel for the ESPN studio team having to fill time talking in circles about this awful situation.

Sounds like from the telecast they aren’t planning to, equipment is being removed from the sideline.

They need to just cancel the game and reassess

This can’t be coming from the front office and more of a personal decision right?

You forgot your italics. As a Colts fan I would love to have Tomlin!

Ehhh. His ways are getting stale. The only thing he has going for him is his non losing record streak. Hasn’t won a playoff game in a few years. He should be on the hot seat.

Someone like McVay would be great for Pickett and his development as a pro.

Still one of the most amazing stats in sports these days is the Steelers only having 3 coaches since 1970. Browns have probably had 30.

The celebrations anymore are stupid. Score your touchdown and go to the damn side line.
