I think Eli has reached a level of fame and due to winning the super bowls, recognition that he won't appear out of place - it's called the Hall of Fame after all, not the Hall of Great Stats.

    Let's be honest - that's why Joe Namath is in the hall. It would seem like they were missing something if he weren't there.
    I think it's a question of "were they elite at their position for a number of years?" And with Eli I think that answer is still no. At least not consistently enough. He'll get in eventually for the fact he had that one insane Super Bowl where he stopped the Perfect Season. But he probably isn't getting in first ballot.

    So the Probowl is using the 4th and 15 on the 25 instead of Onside Kick Rule.

    Oh no trust me we'll see it. Multiple times.

    We'll just never know if it's a good idea because nobody is going to actually give a damn to treat it like a real game.

    well Saints ownership looks like it got involved in doing PR for the Archdiosese of NO in regards to the sexual abuse of children by priests . Not good would be an understatement.

    At this point its probably better to let the emails go public than to let people imagine what they might contain.

    If I was a coach I'd use every time. Then again I'd lose my job going for it 4th down. The punter takes up a valuable slot I could have an option QB take up instead.

    I watched the Senior Bowl. Was pretty fun. Justin Herbert named MVP.

    Herbert wasn't the only one that looked good. Jordan Love looked pretty decent too, but then he had the better team around him. Going to be an interesting draft for teams looking for a QB, cause some of these guys will drop and some of them will go top 10, and just how much are teams willing to move or wait for their guy.

    Patriots obviously with ??? at QB this off season, but even when Brady returns, are they happy with Stidham behind him or do they want to keep taking shots at drafting a QB? Going to be an interesting dynamic.

    Herbert should have put himself back in the #3 QB slot with this performance. Honestly he might be able to pole vault Tua depending on the medicals.

    I'm probably the only one watching, but that Fletcher Cox TD was awesome.
    I'm the root of all that is evil, yeah, but you can call me cookie.

    I couldn't watch. The channel the Guide said the game was on was covering the Kobe crash.

    Did anyone use the new "on side kick rule?"

    This could truly be the end of the Patriots dynasty as we know it, even if Tom Brady stays: Long time Patriots O-line coach Dante Scarnechia is retiring.

    With a brief interruption he was in NE for 40 years, including being the Interim HC at one point, before Robert Kraft bought the team and turned things around.

    Hope he finds peace in retirement, but, going to be a tough time following up his work for anyone. Best O-line coach out there.

    Bill O'Brien officially is being promoted to GM-Coach.

    Also Romeo Crennel will still be on his coaching staff.

    - - - Updated - - -

    State of the League address happened.

    There's going to be games in Mexico City for at least the next two years. There will be Rooney Rule changes. Myles Garret will likely be reinstated next season. And not a single question was asked about officiating.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Eliot Wolf leaving Cleveland. I have to imagine he has a good idea he's getting a GM job somewhere after the draft.

    Panthers agree to part ways with Olsen. He says he still wants to play, though.

    Obviously gotta look at this through the lens of "will they let Cam Newton go."

    Even if he's not a 1000 yard receiver any more, Olsen could still be a contributor in the right offense.

    Seahawks need a new token aging TE. Ed Dickson has been dead a while. May as well scoop up Olsen.
