12-step program (1)

I always thought that step 1 was admitting you had a problem ;)

Sometimes you can't get to step 1 without step 0: Hitting rock bottom. I think the Denver game was it. Were Bill Cowher and Russ Grimm picking names out of a hat every 7 offensive plays to figure out what linemen would play where, or what? If it's a foregone conclusion that the halfback has to make his own holes, you can't start a guy who relies on speed to the corner.

Today's announcement merely settled the bets placed when Cowher annointed Zereoue in the first place. So who had "after the bye week"? :-)

I gotsa question for ya keith.

Anyone in the burgh talking about shifting Bruener to tackle? The kid is the best blocking TE in football, so I don't see why they don't just plop him into T if they need it so badly.

If no one is talking about it, can you put in a personal call to Cowher and ask his opinion? ;-)

Bruener at tackle has come up a few times on the local radio shows, but the meme isn't spreading quickly enough for the coaching staff to take notice. Besides, head coaches aren't well known for taking advice given by local radio shows. :-) At least not until they can spin it into their own idea.

I think Cowher and Grimm see recruiting Bruener as a lineman as an admission of failure. They're determined to dance with who brung 'em.

Projected AFC North Standings (1)

For Nov. 9

  • Cincinnati: 4-5
  • Baltimore: 4-5
  • Cleveland: 3-6
  • Pittsburgh: 3-6

For Dec. 8

  • Cincinnati: 6-7
  • Baltimore: 5-8
  • Pittsburgh: 5-8
  • Cleveland: 5-8

Final Standings

  • Pittsburgh: 7-9
  • Cincinnati: 7-9
  • Baltimore: 6-10
  • Cleveland: 6-10

Note that Pittsburgh makes the playoffs with a sub-.500 record. Expect the NFL to adjust the rules after this embarrassment and travesty to state that division winners must win at least 9 games for automatic playoff qualification.

What the hell happened to Tuesday Morning Quarterback?

ESPN seems to have deleted every trace of Mr. Easterbrook?

No more cheesecake! No more updates on the NY Times quixotic quest to predict an exact final score! For shame!

If you haven't already, read Easterbrook's blog [] , a Slate article [] about it, and sielwolf's JE [] .

It appears that he was fired for criticizing Eisner and/or Disney (Eisner has a track record on this), not for any particular anti-Semitism. In fact, while a quick scan might see "Jewish == love of money", Easterbrook is actually stating the opposite - that these Jewish executives really ought to know better.

With a little luck, perhaps Slate will bring TMQ back.

This had to be said :) (0)
