Washington would be perfect since their DB's love to talk and their rookie QB and his daddy have a brand to build.
Yeah, there's a lot of storylines and personalities to play up too.
Surely it's the Raiders?
They're 100% saving the Raiders for next year when they're finally in Vegas

Some people want the Browns again since they made so many strides.
Browns aren't eligible since they just did it and have a new head coach. There's actually only 5 eligible teams this year:
  • 49ers
  • Raiders
  • Washington
  • Lions
  • Giants
And the 49ers are pretty confident it's not them.

Those are the only teams that are eligible to be forced to do it. Any other team can volunteer. The NFL should offer an incentive to do the show. A minor but meaningful incentive, like an extra roster spot or something.

Was at a new home today and wearing some Steelers gear, as is my wont. The builder rolls up and asks me how I think our Steelers are going to do this upcoming season. I'm like, 'well, we'll see. I think they'll probably make the playoffs, but that's it.' He then goes on a diatribe about how the Steelers won't be doing anything with Ben and Ben needs to go and Ben's over paid and Ben's over the hill, etc. Ladies and gentlemen, I have met DeaconKnowledge !

Shortly after this, Fred Smoot was on Redskins Talk podcast and said this:

"You have to ask yourself, 'Where am I expendable?'" Smoot said on the pod. "I'm going to look at that big cap number that Josh Norman has and that's going to make me want to release him."

Dude got benched after the Giants put up 40 on his squad. I don't know where all this winning is coming from he talks about.

What skills has Peyton Manning shown that would lead anyone to believe he can be a general manager? Selling pizzas?

What was John Lynch doing before signing on with SF? Commentating, right?

Kind of surprised they don't go after Daniel Jeremiah or Louis Riddick. Former scouts and younger options.

Daniel Jeremiah is on the list

It’s supposedly him, Peyton, and Joe Douglas as the people the Jets are targeting.

Wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see a decision for a while though... draft is over and free agency is in between stage 3 and 4 right now. A GM is only necessary for making trades at this point.

When I heard that the Jets were interested in Manning the first thing I thought of was Howie Roseman talking about how different being a GM is from public opinion, and how so much of the job is grinding and putting in long hours. I wonder if Manning would really commit to that when he is already so rich and successful.

He’s an asshole so you won’t find much sympathy from me, but DAMN that’s a massive hit to our defense
Oh well, we can always draft Dylan Moses in a trade down after we go 5-11 or worse, he goes to Bama right?
