Well, he mentioned St. Louis much more than he did Arizona. And he cautioned us on Friday _ the day before induction _ that the nature of his speech was such that he wouldn't say much about St. Louis, or thank many players for that matter. But I believe he said what he needed to say about St. Louis the day he was voted in _ the day before the Super Bowl. The love is there for the StL, and always will be.
I think the league, and many media observers as well, are underestimating the impact of three alienated markets on ratings. For sure. But I think the league is trying to combat any ratings slide this by nationally televising as many Cowboys games as possible.
Not my call. I haven't looked at the forum in forever. Rarely did when I was covering the team here.
1.) Lambeau; 2.) Seattle; 3.) KC; 4.) Arizona; 5.) Tennessee. I'm factoring in game-day atmosphere, crowd, and media accommodations. P.S. _ Before the renovation, I would've had Soldier Field as No. 2.
I'd say pretty good on Isaac. Torry may have to wait a little longer.
I don't want to speak for Kaepernick, but I think his protest went beyond just police treatment of minorities. I think it also dealt with general racial discrimination. He wanted to draw attention to the issue _ and I guess he succeeded with that.
Certainly, they're working against each other. Kind of a modern version of a Swann and Stallworth type of thing. However, both Swann and Stallworth got in the Hall of Fame, although it took a while.
I went to about 11 games last year, pretty much limited to the region. I think I did about six Chiefs games, two or three Colts games, one in Dallas, one in Tennessee, and did the Rams home opener in LA. Didn't get to a Bears game, but hope to this year.
Yeah, there's nothing like outdoor football. But that track meet in St. Louis sure was fun for a while!
I'm thinking a game or two. Remember in the NFL, you don't have to be found guilty of anything to be disciplined.
Not very bright, that's for sure. At least in the near future.
Yeah, I'd say there's a little bit of a playoff bias, but not as much as there used to be. Remember though with Aikman, you have to judge stats by the era the player played in. It wasn't nearly the passing league in Aikman's time as it is now. And QBs through more down field than they do now
OK, time to head over to Illinois practice. Thanks for joining. Sorry I didn't get to all the questions today, but we'll be back next week. . . .
