  1. On one hand (and this is where I'm leaning) I want to say to the Mets "Stick to your guns on Beltran, you hired him, you believe in his managerial abilities...keep him and this will blow over" (and it will most definitely blow over if they stay firm) Another part of me is thinking...sh!t Beltran/Mets has always been an uncomfortable marriage with this constant undercurrent of failure, bitterness, always wanting to be a Yankee etc. Maybe Mets/Beltran was just never meant to be? I don't know. The situation is fluid..but my heart and my head right now is saying STICK WITH HIM
  2. Wow. Wavering. This is getting dangerously close to a lolmets type moment. I kind of thought he was in the clear and now they may actually sh!tcan him (for WHO? Collins?) Watch they fire him and then Beltran gets a job elsewhere and becomes this great manager
  3. They had no interest in retaining him. No interest in using him within the organization anywhere regarding any matters of hockey operations. Apparently no other team did either. He came here to do "business development" whatever that even means. He doesn't seem like anybody who is in any kind of demand league wide for his expertise of hockey operations. Indeed those would be very tough ties to sever. I just hope he's not granted too much power in terms over overseeing what's going on on the ice
  4. He was jettisoned from that role because he was absolutely useless. We had to take him back in something of a sympathy comeback because no other franchise was interested in Brodeur working in any sort of personnel or operations category. He should be nowhere near a job other than team ambassador or something. The team you openly root for on these boards, the Rangers, when they rebuffed Messier trying to muscle his way to the head coaching gig there. These on ice legends are not always great execs. Brodeur right now absolutely has got to be stopped from digging his claws into the ownership group and having any say over personnel decisions
  5. Martin Brodeur? Why is Broduer supporting an interim GM? Brodeur knows nothing
  6. Cespedes is just a walking sitcom.
  7. I honestly think Belichick and his inner circle up there in New England just floats this Giants stuff every so often to spook Kraft and make sure he is getting his way in all matters of personnel and anything else he wants etc. Because if you don't...don't forget my real desire is that Giants job. In reality he'd probably just retire than come to the Giants at this point
  8. Giants hire Joe Judge? Very strange. I don't know what is happening with them. Judge hasn't coached a game at any level and I don't think has ever called an offensive or defensive play in his life (only special teams)
  9. Mike McCarthy to Dallas Guess we'll see if there was any truth behind the smearing he received on his way out of Green Bay Which sort of surprises me that a respectable league pillar like the Packers would behave in that manner to an outgoing successful coach. Very odd
  10. It's very public him tying up loose ends in the Boston area. Trying to sell a home etc...but honestly I mean it's Brady and Giselle. What would it be so hard for them to rent a house for a year and then they can start doing the TB12 stuff more aggressively. Brady always loves proving people wrong and just thrives off it. It fuels him. The way I kind of see it is that he may want to prove he can win something without Belichick. He also playing with fire a bit as even us joking about him never getting hit behind that line...well I mean he still does get hit and has taken plenty of shots since 2001. The threat of CTE is real and you just don't know with him or any other player how they'll be at 50 or 55. One more year getting hit more often than you have been before at 43 may not be worth it for him. Belichick has won Super Bowls and taken teams to the playoffs without Brady and is 67...I don't know how much he cares about winning as a head coach without Brady for the first time. I kind of see that the years have mellowed him. I'm used to see him seething after losses. He wasn't seething yesterday. Right now I just think he wants to make sure the Patriots are left in good hands QB wise when he retires which probably won't be for another two years I just absolutely see no QB the Patriots can put out there that will be better than even a declining Tom Brady next season in their environment. A new QB could come in and even a good player would be overwhelmed there and following in those footsteps And he may not have a good working relationship with Belichick like Brady did. In my eyes with Brady the Patriots would be a slight favorite over Buffalo to win the AFC East next year again. So why not take one more shot with your best guy and you can sort of craft it as an official retirement tour Brady himself does not like anybody breathing down his neck. He didn't want Garoppolo around and that's understandable. Favre didn't care for Rodgers and Montana didn't care for Young either. I think that is the real conflict here. Brady is still leaving this open ended and year to year with his career...but he's also made in known he doesn't want to bother with any true QB's of the future on the roster. The Patriots absolutely know they need a QB of the future on the roster NOW. I have no clue where San Diego entered the discussion. But as we've seen before where there's smoke there's fire. He's from California ok I get that but even with Brady I don't think the Chargers are going to be a SB threat in 2020. They'd just be some kind of ok 8-8 team. Rebound over this year...but nothing special.] Chicago popped in my head as a potential destination that hasn't really been discussed. But they're further along than San Diego and if you give them Brady...pretty legit contender
  11. I don't see Brady doing some sort of Favre shenanigans. Behind an offensive line that's not constructed by Scharnecchia, a different HC, receivers he has no chemistry with...why? NE was able to mask a few things this year with Brady. Won't be so easy next year. It wouldn't surprise me because Brady seems more savvy than Brodeur and Favre and those types...but still who knows.
  12. This team has 0 shot at the playoffs but yes, they are finally watchable. And Hischier is taking his game to the next level. Really becoming fun to watch
  13. BVW claiming that the 1 year Betances signing was meant to blow the cover off our ceiling and how our bullpen has the potential to be one of the best in baseball? huh? Bit much there. Just last year we were pretty much on pace to set the ALL TIME blown saves in a season record. It's not going to get this good with 1 signing. I'm hoping Diaz and Familia somehow rebound and are merely below average rather than the HISTORICALLY putrid they were in 2019. Wouldn't shock me if both clowns are out there throwing up 5era's again.
  14. I agree...I don't see Tua to Detroit at all really. fwiw I think the Fords are pretty patient. A bit surprised still that Caldwell was let go after a 9-7 season. I think Jim Caldwell is actually with Miami now? Not sure in what capacity
  15. Other than last year, Stafford you could pretty much rely on for 16 a year, and he's definitely been an above average QB and still only 31. I'd be curious what their plans are with Matthew if they end up taking Tua. Trade? I could see Carolina being interested
  16. It was the end of his career. Saying he's the least favorite is a bit much but from 2010 to his last day as a Devils before embarrassing himself in St. Louis Brodeur had a lot of bad performances. In a perfect world he retires after the 2012 finals but that didn't happen
  17. Was just thinking the same thing. Thought those Cesp savings were just going to be pocketed...but the bullpen absolutely couldn't be ignored. The late game breakdowns and Mickey's idiocy cost us a playoff spot. Betances, if he's healthy and if he can pick up where he left off can make a huge difference for us. I know Lugo wants to start...tough. We need him in the pen for 2020. If only Diaz can be who he was, a Betances/Lugo/Diaz/Justin Wilson core in that pen should be solid and reliable. But again...lots of what ifs
  18. And why would Coleman pass the puck there on a 2 on 1 Let's see I'm facing the goalie with a step on the defenseman Let's just pass the puck into the skates of the defenseman in my blind spot to Travis Zajac
  19. disgusting wretched embarrassing pukes continue to play like disgusting wretched embarrassing pukes Nas is worse than Hynes it seems
  20. Have to be fair...good win by the Jets. Darnold wasn't great but he got the job done. Not like he's working with any sort of offensive line or legitimate weapons. He did throw one pick that was dropped (and that was definitely not an interception because he did not finish the play) He had a great TD throw to Anderson. Steelers are not easy to move the ball against. Jets kept trying and trying but Bell did nothing of significance. But the Jets D stepped up and stiffened outside of the end of the 1st half idiocy. Really we should've held Pitt to just a long FG all day. And you know what YOU SHOULD when they're throwing up Hodgers/Rudolph. When Conner leaves the game and Washington gets hurt. Even had a Quinnen Williams sighting today! Still that Darnold fumble at the end of the half irks me. You have to have better ball security there Maye made some plays today. Otherwise he hasn't had a good season and his career has been quite injury plagued. Next year we need Maye/Adams to patrol that secondary for 16 games.
  21. This game doesn't mean anything but the Jets plat at the end of the half couldn't have been scripted more SOJ. There are 9 seconds left. Pitt has 0 time outs. Where else would the ball be thrown The endzone. Why is no Jet in the endzone? They just gave them a TD. How do the Jets not recognize what Pitt will obviously do. Pitt had no other options than that exact play
  22. Run him. Break his head. Then he wont do so well That is an oddly almost human looking pile of excrement in the Devils net.
  23. Another day, another embarrassing ugly loss Yep. Devils wretched trash right from the drop of the puck Just fold the team for the rest of the year.
  24. Maybe, but I mean is Hischier developing like we expected him? I was thinking he'd be putting up more points than he is right now. Does Gusev have an NHL future? He brought Grabner in and he was trash. Bratt was a great find however and Palmieri was a good trade. Johansson totally fell apart as a player when he came here...though some bad injury luck is to blame. I really just don't see him as the GM to get us to the next level. Shero at his best to me is...average
  25. I'm sure it wouldn't be the first time it happened to a team Either Subban is done or he's checked out. Whatever the case may be he's not performing and doesn't seem like he cares
