Breakfast: reversal of situation for Vic Fangio?

hot news

– DeMeco Ryans new coach of the Texans!

– Sean Payton signs with the Broncos!


Sean Payton, the Broncos’ third pick?

The announcement of the signing of Sean Payton as head coach of the Broncos was quickly followed by a controversy. Because, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Payton would have been only the third choice of the franchise behind DeMeco Ryans (coach, Texans) and Jim Harbaugh (Coach, Michigan). Denver would have spent the day Tuesday reviving Ryans before it was made official in Houston.

However, this information is contradicted by Adam Schefter of ESPN who claimed that Payton was the only choice in the Broncos’ sights. According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalks, the franchise is sending the message that this rumor is false, and that the information is “pure fabrication”.

Frank Reich will not necessarily be offensive coordinator

This Tuesday, Frank Reich took up residence as head coach of the Panthers. For now, he has not confirmed that he would not necessarily combine his role with that of offensive coordinator in charge of choosing calls, as he did at the Colts during his more than four years in Indiana.

“As far as calls go, I’ll wait to hear the full offensive staff,” Reich said according to’s Anthony Rizzuti.

“Obviously, I’ve always liked doing that. I’ve had success doing it. But, it seems to me that there is a tendency not to do so anymore. I want to keep thinking about it, and it will depend on how the staff organizes itself. (…) I am curious about the profiles of people who could become our offensive coordinator. So I will wait to make my decision,” Reich said.

– Michael Gallup (WR, Cowboys) had surgery on his right knee and right ankle on Tuesday. This is an arthroscopy according to the Dallas Morning News. He should be ready for spring training.

Nick Bosa wants to stay in San Francisco

Seeing a good player or a very good player asking for the best salary is common in the NFL. With the gradual expansion of the cap, the latest contracts are often the highest paid, even if the players obtaining them are not always the references to their position. To see an elite player not asking for an exceptional pay and bragging about his candor is much rarer, and that is nevertheless what he just did Nick Bosa (DE, 49ers).

Asked whether he will ask to be the highest paid defender, the one who is finishing the fourth season of his rookie contract replied: “not necessarily”, this Tuesday at the premises of the Californian franchise, according to journalist Cam Inman . However, with 18.5 sacks this year, the number 2 in the 2019 draft could panic the counters. Good news for the San Francisco franchise, to which the player seems attached.

“I would love to stay here. It’s a great organization, they treat me as well as they can, so let’s hope that happens,” Bosa said.

Aaron Rodgers still hasn’t made up his mind

The offseason has not even started as the soap opera Aaron Rodgers (QB, Packers) already stirs the league. If the rumors evoke a possibility that the player is exchanged, seems to him for the moment very far from these considerations, even if he insisted on the weight which his decision would have in the process.

“I’m not part of the ongoing discussions, which is interesting,” the four-time MVP joked during an appearance on the PatMcAfee Show. “Honestly, I was isolated from all this, (…) when I have made my decision, everyone will know it”, specified the player. “I am confident that in two weeks I will know more about my decision,” he concluded.

A way like any other to remember that he certainly does not have a clause in his contract preventing his exchange, but that he can also decide to retire, and therefore, that once again, it is his agenda who will win the Packers and not the other way around.

Urban Meyer sees ‘great future’ for Jaguars

Urban Meyer doesn’t really hold a grudge. Sacked last season by the Jaguars after 13 small games in office, the former head coach of Ohio State congratulated his former franchise for its run this year.

“I was waiting to see that, because they had a lot of different players than when I was there (…) they did a great job in the offseason,” Meyer explained to the “All Things Covered” podcast. “It’s a quarterback sport and when you have a killer like Trevor Lawrence… you have a chance. So they have a great future,” prophesied Meyer, with whom Lawrence killed more drives than defenses.

Not enough, however, to make him regret his old job or football.

“No desire,” he answered when asked if he would like to resume, even though he was full of praise for Lawrence, explaining that he “could become a Hall of famer and that he was the reason he returned to coaching last season.

The Pro Bowl is a joke for everyone

Nobody takes the Pro Bowl seriously. Josh Allen (QB, Bills) withdrew from an injury which did not prevent him from responding favorably to the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament. The other joke of the year is Pro Bowl substitute selection. Left to the players, it gave rise to a few surprises, including the selection Derek Carr (QB, Raiders), not really in a great year. The player had fun with it himself.

“Maybe my invite got lost in my mailbox after previous seasons,” Carr joked on Twitter. 2Ffootball%2Fderek-carr-hilarious-reaction-pro-bowl%2F610917
