Is Upper Iowa no longer in the IIAC?

Or, does the IIAC no longer exist?

NFL Talk / Re: The Greatness of Patrick Mahomes
« Last post by MO.Pack on December 13, 2018, 05:39:46 PM »
BTW, if Mahomes does what I think he will do, that is throw for  over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns, he will be only the second QB in history to do so.

It took Peyton Manning about 15 years to achieve that feat.

If he does it, Mahomes will have achieved it in his first season.

Is Mahones having a season for the ages? Absolutely. Will he continue to play at that level for years to come? Ask me at the end of years to come.






If he does win the Super bowl he would have achieved what Favre and Rodgers have also done.  I agree that if he does not play at this crazy level then he might just average only 30 TD a year and only 4000 yards per year, but I think the Chiefs would still take those numbers for future years.

What about former Lions head coach, Jim Caldwell? 36 - 28 record with Detroit, two playoff appearances.  Also went to the super bowl with the Colts.


That is one from out of the woodwork. Not a fan, but we just never know until we know.


Footballdad, what kind of year did your son have at Upper Iowa this year?

Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Did the packers squander Aaron?

The Packers did not squander Aaron.  I'd argue the training staff did.  Hard to compete for a championship with your best players on the bench nursing preventable injuries.  Year after year after year hammies and groins.  Sickening.  I hope to god the changes are made to the trainers when the new regime comes in.

It's going to be tough to get a win in this one.  Bulaga out not sure on Breeland.  We are playing with half a roster.   If they pull off the upset I'll be impressed.  Don't think it's fair to judge Philbin solely on this game tho.  Agree with Shinesman.  Need up tempo quick passing game.  If Rodgers tries to do the sandlot thing he'll get killed.  The Pack should be up for this one.  Expect a good game.  Not going to predict a final outcome on this one as I have no idea.  I'd take the under though.  It will be a low scoring tough battle.

Let's see if the game plan is smart enough to include some quick passes and uptempo series this time. And will they again pull Aaron Jones for a quarter at a time for no apparent reason? Sunday will tell!

I like that Monken calls plays in the NFL.  The hard thing about hiring an OC is you have to project his future performance as HC.  Monken, like Philbin has experience as HC.  Like Philbin his record isn't so good.

Belichick's record wasn't so good until he went to NE and decided to start Brady. He's been the platinum standard since. Sometimes it just takes the right situation meeting the right person. By the way, this is not even meant to hint that Monken might be the next Belichick. Its just an extreme example.

Belichek was actually in the middle of making the Browns a winner. They were on track for the playoffs and the owners decided to announce the move of the franchise before the most important part of the season. It took the air out of the whole team and sabatoged them. They think they did it on purpose to deflate the team because if they made the playoffs, it would have been very hard to justify the move to the city of Cleveland.

Watches a whole special about those browns on NFL network a few months back.

Packers vs. Bears:
Regular season, all-time: 96-93-6
All-time, postseason: 1-1
All-time, in Chicago: 49-52-2
Streaks: The Packers have won five consecutive regular-season games against Chicago and 15 of the last 17 meetings.

First one to a 100 wins is the winner?

First Favre and then Rodgers have definitely been Bear killers. So, will this continue on Sunday? I'm thinking the Bears left a lot on the field in their win over the Rams, and will have a let down in this game, while the Packers will play with renewed energy and focus. That is just a feeling, but its a good feeling. Something that has been missing in recent weeks.
