Exactly. They are going with "NE Coach" like in Madden.
Like a video game without licensing rights.
Literally the first thing I did when I heard the news about Washington's team, I texted my buddy, who is a lifelong DC sports fan, for his thoughts. The first sentence of his reply was, "I hope they make Snyder sell the team."Just for some context on this, Stanford changed their mascot to the Cardinal and a Sequoia tree in 1975 in an early response to recognizing an issue with their mascot. The Tribe began pulling Chief Wahoo off merchandise two years ago. If Dan Snyder didn't come up with a contingency plan, that is a clear reflection of his ability to do business.
I'd like to also point out that if Snyder were forced out of ownership much like Donald Sterling was removed from the Clippers, literally nobody would be upset. DC fans hate him, media hates him, players hate him, other owners hate him. I'm pulling for a forceful sale.
In the case of Seattle, I’d say poor drafting and poor scouting. Trade 2 years of a gamble, for a sure thing (barring injury) with potential HOF ability. Not to mention, it fills a big void on their D.Are we seeing the devaluation of First Round picks because of an expected inability to scout players, who by the time they enter the NFL next year will have gone almost two years without any game action?
Or is this just an overpay for a safety nearing his contract extension?
Time will tell.
