    The NFL 2023/2024 season is over. Many firings, hirings, etc took place before the SB ended the season, but now we're going to see a lot of activity as teams get ready for 2024/2025.

    The big news right now is the 49ers fired DC Steve Wilks. I suppose one could make the argument that allowing a late drive to tie in regulation, then a TD drive to win in OT means Wilks didn't do his job very well. The much stronger argument is Wilks did a fantastic job in SF, & this' a ridiculous knee jerk reaction. Maybe Wilks will end up with another NFC West team ;).



    Are there any NFL actions or rumors you want to discuss?


    Edit: How many times do I have to pluralize hirings before it will take?

    Justin Fields traded by the Bears to the Steelers for a 6th, which could become a 4th, round pick. I have no real interest in the Bears, but this strikes me as a seriously stupid trade by the Bears.

    The Steelers also have Russel Wilson on a super bargain one year deal, thanks to the Broncos.

    I can see why the Steelers see this as a win-win. If Wilson wins the starting job, Fields has time to learn & adjust. If Fields is the starter, having an experienced vet such as Wilson (elite? still? formerly?) is a great position to be in.

    My big question is what happens if they end up with vocally disgruntled backup QB? I don't think Wilson wants to waste a year as a backup, esp at age 35 (36 in Nov).

    Fields, OTOH, might welcome the chance to step back...for a little while.

    The Texans traded for wide receiver Stefon Diggs from the Buffalo Bills.

    I'm reading many comments calling this smart move by the Texans, & I agree. Diggs' resume is amazing.

    What I don't see is much metion of his age, 30. How many times have we seen a really good player on the edge of an inevitable decline accelerate that decline by switching teams? Hopefully Diggs has something in the tank, & will be in good company here, & won't carry the full workload of a number one receiver.
