Sad to say,

Doomster : 11/12/2017 8:45 am
this web site, along with this team is dead.....which is not unexpected with the current state of the team.

A lot of the regulars are even missing on BBI.....

Basically this team is in limbo, until the season is over....and then the circus comes to town.....

The big question is, will this organization take a good look at itself, or, will they continue to trip over themselves and follow the same path of the last 6 years? Anyone that thinks the problems of this team/organization can be fixed in a couple of seasons, is delusional....in fact, if the right moves are not made, the shit has not even hit the fan yet....

Football is entertainment.....and right now, this team is like watching a JV team play against the Seniors. Phil Simms said it best, when he talked about the losing season he had early in his career, and yet they beat the mighty Cowboys that year....his team had pride....and even though they would not be going to the playoffs, they were going to make it hard for the other teams, trying to make the playoffs, because they had PRIDE.....Something this team seems to be sorely lacking....Why is there no pride? Because there is no leadership, offensively, defensively, or coaching wise, that instills it......There is absolutely no one!

Today spend more time preparing for on the field antics than just performing. Iím not one to blame coaches or management the players play or they donít ours are not playing well at all in all levels. Whatís sad to see is that they are not doing anything at present that even looks like something to build on for the future. This team has gone from a solid six to eight players to only one who is a rookie the rest are all earning stolen money.
Maybe if there were better thread titles

You understand how necessary season like this one is in Maraland. Tom Quinn is still the ST coach if it takes 1-15 to get rid of him, Reese, etc. thatís fine with me. But Iíll be paying attention to how many typical Mara cronies are on the next staff and in the next GM seat if there are changes before getting excited. The chances of the Maraís hiring a new GM with significant input into the next coach and having that coach pick his own staff from outside the good old Irish network are probably none.

Your threads suck. Learn to write.

Also message boards are a dying medium. Especially those without any semblance of proper tools. This board, from a tech point of view, is probably the worst on the Internet. That doesn't help.
Reese has been a terrible GM  
DavidinBMNY : 11/12/2017 9:14 am : link
He hasn't been a bad talent evaluator and has brought in play makers. His approach to prioritizing play makers is what did this team in. You could point to the high risk players and out of position players and injured players as well the giants drafted under his watch, but the brash prioritization on play makers is what killed the team.

Please point us to a couple of best-on-the-Internet websites (from a tech point of view). The Corner Forum is a high-density, easy to read forum. I'd agree with others that the Forum's content is declining in quality, but a dismal seasonal sucks the life out of a place like this.
Four ND turnovers that should have been five  
TMS : 11/12/2017 9:39 am : link
ruined their season. Kelly did not have them prepared for a Miami team that has been making this their hallmark all season. That and the ND QB was one handed as well. Preparation is everything sometimes. Too bad thought ND had a real shot this year.

Very true and Reese should have been gone 3/4 years now. Hope they will do not scapegoat the coaches and still keep him and his staff AGAIN.

That sports build character was inaccurate. More apt would be, Sports reveals character.

This is true for the athletes and their fans.

Any message board is better than BBI. Pick any one at random.

It's not easy to read, based solely on not knowing which threads have been updated since your last visit. And not being able to go to the first new post in each thread.

There is a myriad of other reasons but.. whatever.

Been here for a while, great content for the most part. The web design and forum "software" is awful.
