1  KVIrc discussion / Configuration problems / put to together a product which was the envy of many small school programs on: 16 March 2018, 16:41
Citing the need to step back and take a break, Dana Olson stepped down as head coach at Millis after four high successful seasons.

Taking over for Dale Olmsted four years, Olson guided the Mohawks to a 37 11 and back to back Super Bowl titles the last two years. Despite increasingly low numbers Duron Harmon Jersey, Olson managed to put to together a product which was the envy of many small school programs.

When I took over, I wanted to make sure we did things the right way, https://www.patriotsnefans.com/lawrence-guy-jersey-c-31.html  said Olson, who was named the New England Patriots High School Coach of the Year in 2016. I know we had some kids in the building who didn t play football because of that, but we wanted kids who were willing to work hard and we got that.

Despite the size of the school, Millis managed to draw the interest of major colleges. In recent years, Jon Baker Boston College and Peter Fallon Villanova were among the top rated linemen in the state. The current roster has two high profile future college prospects in Kevin Pyne and Murrell Quashie, both who have already received scholarship offers.

I told those guys, I am not going anywhere, I m still working here, Olson said.

As for the future https://www.patriotsnefans.com/stephen-gostkowski-jersey-c-29.html, Olson said hasn t ruled out a return to football.

I think you ll hear from me again , Olson said with his trademark booming laugh. Right now https://www.patriotsnefans.com/david-jones-jersey-c-30.html, it s time to enjoy time with my wife Stacey.
2  KVIrc discussion / Feature requests / Brian Gutekunst’s brief tenure has already shown on: 16 March 2018, 16:40
The Arizona Cardinals made a controversial decision on Wednesday, releasing defensive back Tyrann Mathieu to free up salary cap space for 2018 and beyond. The move freed up a few million for the upcoming season, which helped the Cardinals sign a pair of quarterbacks in Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon.

Good for them, I guess. Their loss will be some other team’s gain. The question is which team will that be?

Despite Mathieu becoming a free agent at age 25 turning 26 in May , he already has five years of experience and cashed in with a signing bonus on his first contract extension two years ago. He is sure to have plenty of suitors and to get significant money on the open market, so he has made it clear that he is not just looking to go to whatever team will sign him to the biggest contract.

That approach is unlike some other players — looking at you, Ndamukong Suh.

Instead, Mathieu is focusing on destinations that offer him a good football environment. ESPN’s Josina Anderson said that she has spoken to Mathieu, and he told her that he wants “to go somewhere where football is important and it matters.”

Here’s another quote of Mathieu’s, provided by Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated

It’s not all about money for me ... I want to go somewhere where I can be completely immersed in football, and it’s not too much about anything but winning. I want to be a part of winning culture, where you feel that all the time. That’s all I want.

Well, Tyrann, there’s no place where football is more important to the city and to the team itself than in Green Bay. After all https://www.packersgbstore.com/brian-price-jersey-c-69.html, the Packers have no traditional owner, freeing up the organization to focus entirely on the football team itself over all else.


Although Mathieu is not a traditional fit for what the Packers look for in defensive backs — he’s just a shade under 5 foot 9 — he is a dynamic playmaker who can split time as both a slot corner and a safety. The Packers’ depth issues at defensive back are well known, and with the team not signing any of the top options at corner though they are apparently still in the running for former Colt Rashaan Melvin , the position remains a significant need.

Say the Packers do find a way to shuffle some money around and land Mathieu, then get Melvin in on a one year, incentive laden deal. In that case, the Packers probably start Kevin King and Melvin on the boundaries with Ha Ha Clinton Dix and Mathieu at the safety spots and Josh Jones playing the Will linebacker position. When the team goes to nickel, Mathieu moves down into the slot with Kentrell Brice coming on at safety.

That’s a pretty solid group.

Mathieu’s asking price is still a question mark, and he has connections with both New York teams — the Jets are coached by Todd Bowles, one of Mathieu’s former defensive coordinators Malachi Dupre Jersey, while the Giants just hired James Bettcher, the most recent DC in Arizona, for the same job. To be sure, Mathieu will get more money than former Packers safety Morgan Burnett, but he is younger and much more apt to produce big plays.

Say the Packers, who have about 24.5 million in cap space after the Muhammad Wilkerson deal https://www.packersgbstore.com/lenzy-pipkins-jersey-c-68.html, end up taking up another 8 million in 2018 on the Jimmy Graham contract. That’s still 16.5 million that they could devote to Mathieu and Melvin. The team would likely need to free up some space with a contract extension for Clay Matthews or Randall Cobb https://www.packersgbstore.com/raysean-pringle-jersey-c-70.html, but restructuring one of those two should give the team enough flexibility to squeeze in both defensive backs.

It’s probably not likely that the Packers would make such a splash, but Brian Gutekunst’s brief tenure has already shown that he is willing to break with the tendencies of his predecessor, Ted Thompson. Making a serious run at Mathieu would give Mike Pettine an elite playmaker in the secondary to build a scheme around for years to come, and the Packers’ culture seems to be exactly what the former Cardinal is looking for.
3  KVIrc discussion / Talking about bugs / signed with the Falcons last offseason and provided them with a lift on: 16 March 2018, 16:39
 Free agency began with the Panthers losing defensive tackle Star Lotulelei to Buffalo. Ever since, they ve been busy replenishing their defensive line.

After re signing future Hall of Fame pass rusher Julius Peppers on Wednesday https://www.falconsatljersey.com/deron-washington-jersey-c-49.html, the Panthers signed ex Falcons defensive tackle Dontari Poe to a three year, 27 million contract, according to Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post. Martin, who covers the Redskins, noted that Washington demonstrated interest in Poe.

In Poe, the Panthers are getting a former first round pick with 15.5 sacks on his six year resume five years in Kansas City and one year in Atlanta . Poe s been durable throughout his career, missing only two of 96 possible regular season games. He s coming off a 2.5 sack, 23 tackle season in which  https://www.falconsatljersey.com/jordan-moore-jersey-c-47.html  he graded as Pro Football Focus 35th best interior defender. According to PFF, Poe registered 19 run stops tied for 26th among defensive tackles . He fared better as a pass rusher, notching 37 total pressures, the ninth most at his position group. CBS Sports Pete Prisco ranked Poe as the 13th best free agent.


The Panthers are hoping his resurgence continues after he signed with the Falcons last offseason and provided them with a lift.
In Carolina, Poe joins a defensive line that includes two capable defensive ends in Peppers the fourth most sacks of  https://www.falconsatljersey.com/brooks-reed-jersey-c-50.html all time and Mario Addison tied Peppers for the team lead in sacks last year with 11 , as well as defensive tackle Kawann Short 7.5 sacks last season . It s a talented group that should help the Panthers get back to the playoffs a year after their defense ranked seventh in yards allowed, 11th in points allowed, and seventh in DVOA.

For the Falcons Darion Griswold Jersey, it probably hurts to see Poe stick in the NFC South, but they re likely more concerned with keeping defensive end Adrian Clayborn, who led the team in sacks with 9.5 last season. According to ESPN s Vaughn McClure, the Patriots, Colts, Buccaneers, Browns, and Falcons are all in the mix to sign him.
