    From NFL Draft Kickoff: The #Packers are dug in and so is QB Aaron Rodgers. Remember, Rodgers' agent Dave Dunn helped Carson Palmer shoot his way out of Cincy... even if it took a while. Perhaps a similar game plan, stay tuned for the results.

     

    The NFL is gonna be PISSED with all the Packers games that were more than likely going to be in prime time if this happens. Especially the Chiefs/Packers game. And right before the schedule announcement in a couple of weeks.

     

    Would make the Broncos/Chiefs games must-see TV though.

    Not sure why it matters to people

     

    Well, a lot of people travel to games, or want to plan for games around special occasions and such. Some people need to save money for these, take time off work, make travel arrangements, etc.

     

    So the later the schedule comes out can impact a lot of this, especially if people need to take time off work.

    It has always been out around the middle of April before the NFL draft. I guess the extra game messed them up? Don't see why. Not a fan. They should have the schedule ready the previous year. They already know the opponents. Not sure I understand why, but ok.

     

    Because they want to be in the news in the middle of May. That's the only reason. I hate it.

    They don't need to do it in public, if they fail to make Wilson happy and retain his services for the future then you can blast them as incompetent idiots. Until then you just sound like a Wilson cheerleader. But then you've already got him in the HOF, doubt that's a widely held view. But then most of your views are unique. 

     

    Oh come on now. Wilson is a franchise QB and a clear Hall of Famer if he stays on this trajectory.

     

    You simply don't trade those guys in their prime - ever.   

     

    You are forgiven, however, as a Browns fan.  Seeing as you would not know what a franchise quarterback looks like.

    Would be a good replacement for the often injured and aging Sammy Watkins. But they also have some good young talent like Hardman, Robinson and even Pringle.

     

    Don't see the Chiefs spending big on FA WR. 

     

    The Chiefs need a good #2. Neither of those guys listed above fit that bill.

     

    I could absolutely see the Chiefs spend money on that position. They are in win-now mode.

    There is blame to spread around IMHO.  Seattle brass hasn't complete ignored O-line, trading away draft capital for LT Duane Brown and signing him to a long term deal is one example.  PFF had them ranked 16th in pass blocking last year, that isn't horrible.   Wilson is also always amongst league leaders in holding onto the ball after the snap.  They played high flying ball beginning of last year and when teams adjusted, Wilson played like dog poo. Even when they tampered the passing down - they still passed a lot relative to the league average.  Bad play schemes for sure, but Wilson isn't void of responsibility. 

    Wilson complaining through the press is a sure sign he feels his opinion wasn't being appreciated.  That's on the coaching staff for sure, but RW also threw some teammates under the bus going public.  He's not being completely ignored...the new O-coordinator was apparently a collaborative hire.  Last year RW wanted "stars."  They traded away 2 firsts for Jamal Adams...no he wants more O-line help.  Well, his salary is a big reason resources are limited.  He wants to be treated like Brady, I believe Brady re-structured his contract multiple times with NE.  

    In a perfect world, this all gets straightened out.

     

     

    So what's the fan bases opinion of Wilson? From the outside looking in, I've always enjoyed his play.

     

    But when he talks, I feel like he says what he thinks the rest of the world wants to hear. I know he's a good community guy and all, but wondering if his heart is in it or if he wants his "image" to look good. If that makes sense.

    It would take some creative trading for Russell to go somewhere.  But, the trade path gets more practicable after this year.  This very well could be the beginning of the end. 

     

    This just astounds me. If this was Peyton Manning at the end of his career - ok.

     

    But this is Russell Wilson - a potential HOF'er in his prime. How the heck do you trade that guy? If anything, Pete Carroll needs to be shown the door and bring in a coach that can maximize his skills.

     

    The Seahawks have done Wilson a disservice surrounding him with that turd O-line for all these years. This is seriously shades of the Packers and McCarthy basically wasting Aaron Rodgers career.

     

    Sure, they each have a Super Bowl ring, but it should have been so much more on both sides. Awful.

    He's reportedly not requesting/demanding a trade, but since he has a no-trade clause.... the teams he's supposedly OK with going to are Dallas, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Chicago.

     

    All of Chicago would have heart attacks if Russell Wilson ended up there.

    You guys deserve it as long a drought as you had & as great an organization and fanbase KC has.  I wasn't heartbroken when we lost to y'all this year, but it was painfully obvious they were calling no holding penalties against y'all & I think that frustration is what led to Cam Jordan getting himself ejected. I posted a thread referencing that, but it wasn't really about that game as much as it was the ongoing disparity of penalties called against teams when they played the Saints and their typical average.

     

    Yeah, agree. 

     

    I still want to know what the Saints did to piss off the NFL. It's got to be something more than the Bountygate thing. The Saints get screwed more than any other team out there and it's not even close.


  10. Bummer. I started coming to The Huddle when Marty was the coach of the Chiefs. My original name here was Martyball.

     

     

    Loved that guy - he and Carl Peterson rejuvenated the Chiefs and brought them back to relevance, which they have sustained to this day.  Sad for him and his family.

    I don't suspect it, but I wouldn't be surprised at all and all it would take is one official making or holding back on a few flags in order to sway a game one way or another. It may not be effective enough to absolutely decide an outcome, but it certainly can influence it. Individual bias I'm absolutely sure of and not just on the NFL officiating crew level either.

     

    All I know is the Chiefs didn't get sheeeeit for calls until we had Mahomes.

    A great story for the NFL. Home town.... new (the greatest to have ever been or ever will be according to the NFL and ESPN) QB for the home team.

    How can that mean anything except a TB win. As much as I hate it...there is nothing that can be done about it.

    It has already been determined.

     

     

     

    Yep, agree. That and someone put 2.3 million on the Bucs to cover, so you know the fix is in at the casino in Vegas.  As much as this will piss me off, the Bucs have this one.
