  1. Browns/Colts Trivia

    From Wikipedia: By the late twenties, the Dayton Triangles were one of the league's doormats, winning just five of their 51 NFL contests from 1923–29. Only the revenues from playing on the road kept them afloat. Also around this time, the NFL began shaking off its roots in mid-sized midwestern cities. Although the Triangles were one of only three original NFL teams (along with the Bears and Cardinals) to survive the 1920s, it soon became apparent that Dayton was not big enough to support a team in the burgeoning league. Finally, on July 12, 1930, a Brooklyn-based syndicate headed by Bill Dwyer bought the Triangles; the franchise moved to Brooklyn and was renamed the Brooklyn Dodgers. Jack Deplerwas a co-owner and new coach of the Dodgers who had been a coach-player for the NFL's Orange Tornadoes. He took most of the members of the 1929 Tornadoes with him for the new Dodgers team. Lineage[edit] Due to numerous transactions over the years, the Triangles have a tenuous connection to the current NFL. The Dodgers merged with the Boston Yanks franchise for the 1945 season due to player shortages. In 1946, the Brooklyn half jumped to the AAFC and played as the New York Yankees. The Boston Yanks remained in the NFL, and in 1949 moved to New York and became the New York Bulldogs. Also in 1949, the AAFC Yankees merged with the Brooklyn Dodgers and played as the Brooklyn-New York Yankees. When the AAFC merged with the NFL, the Yankees players were divided between the New York Giants and the New York Bulldogs. A failure at the box office, the Bulldogs were "sold back" to the NFL in 1952 and awarded to a group from Texas, who moved it to Dallas for the 1952 season as the Dallas Texans. The Texans failed after one year and were again sold back to the NFL, who folded the Texans franchise. Its remains were awarded to an ownership group in Baltimore to form the Baltimore Colts. The Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and are still playing as the Indianapolis Colts. The NFL currently does not consider the Colts to be a continuation of any of its past incarnations, including the Triangles.

  3. What country do you live in?

  5. Who are the championship contenders?

    If you were to make it like the NCAA tournament (or...actually just like the FCS and D-II and D--III tournaments), you would take the winners of the 10 FBS conferences: AAC, ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Conf.-USA, MAC, Mountain West, Sun Belt, Pac-12 and SEC....and put them all in the tournament. Then add 6 "Wild cards". That, to me would be ideal. But "OH MY GOD" what would it do to the Bowl games!! (Answer: who really gives a shit. They can still be played in like an NIT type situation...the only people paying attention are the fans of the schools in it now). But "OH MY GOD" what about taking the kids away from school...what about their test...their education!! (they do it now with FCS, D-II and D-III....why the fuck is the education of the FBS players more important than those of the lower divisions? It ain't)
  6. Who are the championship contenders?

    What "non-power" program has any sort of a chance now, with only 4 teams in it? Even the Big 12 has no chance now. Not really.
  7. Who are the championship contenders?

    I don't know about that. When Howard Schnellenberger and Bernie and Vinny there I think it was a good program. Others came in and made it a renegade.
  8. Garrett Hurt Already

    Well....that depends on how you interpret "in position". He put them "in position" by getting them within 3 pts. He COULD have perhaps won the game if the defense had done its job. And penalties are part of the game....the Steelers TD drives were helped out tremendously by a few penalties on the Browns. Should we not credit them with scoring because they were helped by penalties.? Their entire win was helped by turnovers. Should we say that they would not have won had it not been for the turnovers? As far as Kizer and blowjobs...I will defer to your expertise on fellatio. I have no expertise there. Mine tends more toware Colonel Angus.
  9. Betting odds on HC Firing

    I think that would only apply if he is the FIRST HC to be fired. I don't think those would be the odds of him being fired at any time during the season. Correct me if I am wrong. And yes, as MarkO said.....with the Bangles...his chances of getting fired during the season are probably about on par with Belichick's chances of getting fired.
  10. Garrett Hurt Already

    Oh no. no. no. no. no.....big nig mistake. Brisett has a far better QB management team behind him, and a much more successful and smarter HC. There is no argument here. Brisett was on his way to beating the Cardinals. Kizer has never been in a situation where he could win a game. Brisett will have a better game than Kizer. He will beat the Browns. Short memory....just two weeks ago Kizer very well may have been in a situation to win a game. He led the team to a TD vs. the Steelers, bringing them to within 3 pts. They were in a situation where the COULD win. Had the defense held the Steelers instead of giving up first downs, Kizer may have led them into position to win.

    The fact that he was not a universal pick tells just what a shitstorm we have had with our QBs here....since the Bernie/Vinny era.
  13. Betting odds on HC Firing

    If Browns hammer Colts....as I believe they should...Pagano could be gonzo.
