    More teams adopting Tomlin’s philosophy. Been some big names on the move lately.

    All I remember is people on this board stating it's Tomlins fault for saying such "nonsense". Now, other teams are smart yet Tomlin still remains the clown. :hmm:


    Quite intriguing if you ask me.

    This is nothing new. The same "phrase" has been used since the dawn of women.
    Not verbatim but verboten

    Right?

    I would say "Let'em act like an ass. He's only hurting his own value." I wish I could say that.

    The problem is if the guy has talent, even if the guy is being a miscreant, embarrassing the team, killing dogs, or flat out refuses to play, someone will always give him another chance.

    How is Josh Gordon on an NFL roster right now?! He's missed 111 games in 10 seasons. He's played in 5 or less games in a season five times. Yet he started 7 games with Mahomes last year and only caught 5 balls!

    Yet, they're bringing back another year. I thought roster spots were extremely valuable?

    Did you even read it? Your analogy has nothing to do with it.

    When one malcontent can ruin a season with his behavior, kick him to the curb and get what you can for him.

    You think Houston is upset about getting a kings ransom for Watson?

    Here is where the problem lies...

    Every single circumstance, is it's own entirely unique circumstance. The correct course of action in one situation, may not necessarily be the correct course of action in another.

    The "Volunteers not Hostages" remark is just another in a long line of witty one liners that Tomlin has used in his press conferences. A cute comment for sure, but certainly not words to live, or run a team by.

    It does allow for age so you probably are still +/- the same

    I actually checked once out of arrogance and was only short a point

    I’ve seen plenty of your posts here. You don’t strike me as the type to be that upset about change or what every other generation is doing.

    I made a comment about the good old days to my grandfather who was very old and I was very young at the time and his response was “these are the good old days”. I am open to change. I just pick the new parts that I want to enjoy. For example this message board is my only form of social media. I have email and check it every few months. Few people have my cell number so I do respond to text. But that’s mostly so I don’t actually have to talk to people.

    With that said give a couple beers in a bar and you will have a hard time shutting me up.
