Out of the Blue

Welcome to the NFL to Greg Schiano, who in his rookie season has already established himself as the chippiest coach in the league. That stunt his team pulled at the end of the game was really embarrassing, and I expect the unapologetic punk will be getting a call from the commissioner this week to discuss how professionals conduct themselves, as he obviously has a lot to learn in that regard.

I'm curious as to why the shuttle can't be dismantled enough to transport it and reassemble it for display without dragging it through NEIGHBORHOODS and cutting down hundreds and hundreds of trees.
I would assume the answer is that all the joints between the sections from when it was assembled are "permanent", ie. welded or maybe "glued" in a way that effectively makes the joints stronger than the material itself. Not sure how I feel about it, it seems like a pretty high "cost" to residents along the path.

Seems really shortsighted.

Many stations have already started talking about the refs need to take control of these games. I have seen a lot of cheap shots and no calls on head to head leading hits that scare the hell out of me.

“We do what we’re coached,” McCoy said. “I’ll leave it at that.”

Ahh yes, the old 'We were just following orders.' excuse. People can rationalize anything evil because someone else told them to do it. That's just the worst kind of cowardice. And I suspect Schiano won't be around long if that's the sort of dick he is.

Not sure why he should get a call, not only did he not break any rule, but it's not like something like that hasn't been done in the past when a team is in the victory formation. On top of that, it was pretty obviously that's what Tampa was doing when they lined up for the snap. It be more bush league if they pretended that they were just going to kneel and then rush the line.

Yeah, that was just horseshit. I'm sure Red Moron will be calling pretty soon.

Saw it on espn.com. While not illegal (at least I don't think it is) , there's no doubt it's a douche move and a dirty play, made doubly douchey by the fake justification of it by saying "I coach my guys to go all out on every play".
