I'm starting to think Marvin Lewis is one of the more underappreciated NFL coaches of the past couple decades. Staying 16 years in one place is TOUGH, and I feel like people have forgotten a lot of context along the way.
In the 12 years before Marvin Lewis arrived, the Bengals were 55-137. In the two years since he left, they are 6-25-1. That's 14 years and 0 playoff appearances.

Lewis was 131-122-3 with 7 playoff appearances.
Lewis took over a 2-14 team in 2003. His first three years, he went 8-8, 8-8 and 11-5.

He got his QB in Year 2 in Carson Palmer and reached the playoffs in Year 3. But on his very first throw, Palmer tore his knee.

In 2018, the #49ers unveiled all-white throwbacks into the team's uniform rotation. It is a tribute to the 1994 #SuperBowl championship team.

Since then, fans have lauded this and called for the red version to return.

Here is the history of these uniforms.

Continue thread.🔽 ImageImage
These throwback uniforms originally date back to the 1955 #49ers team. That team went 4-8.

The helmet was red (with no logo) and silver pants were sometimes worn. The original white uniforms featured black stripes.

This uniform was only worn this season.

In 1994, the #NFL celebrated its 75th year. Teams were to participate in league-wide throwback uniform celebration beginning in Week 3. A commemorative 75th anniversary patch was worn by all teams.

For the first two weeks, the #49ers wore the standard set.

#Falcons QB Matt Ryan on 680 The Fan: On firing of Quinn - it sucked yesterday. We've gotta find a way to win this week.
Had a zoom team meeting, Dan was able to talk to everybody and he passed it over to Raheem. Gave players the day off yesterday/today.
On what Raheem brings to the table: Really likes him, He's got a good pulse of the team. Knows and relates to guys well. Have to keep the locker room tight and unified.

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.

My 1st Round Grades w/ Analysis in the thread:

Referenced my Big Board for value (linked again below w/ my other #NFLDraft content)
All my #NFLDraft content, including my Top 100 Big Board, in one spot👇
A+ (5 total) = Elite pick - great player & fit + excellent value
A (6) = Great - great player & fit
B (5) = Good - would've done it differently
C (5) = Reach / Left value on the board
D (6) = Come again? ... Why.
F (5) = See gif👇

In January I took a long look at the #Falcons defense and everything they brought to the table. This is a fast, aggressive unit with talent at all three levels. My plan is to build off of this piece in this week's write-up

READ: goo.gl/b3aTqa
Shot 1 - The #Falcons have some juice up front on passing downs. Takk McKinley, Vic Beasley and Grady Jarrett have ability to be very disruptive, and they use all of them in various 2- and 3-man games in their 4-man rushes
Shot 2 - Grady Jarrett is very disruptive on the interior thanks to his quick first step, snap anticipation and hand-usage. Jack Crawford is still a consistent, versatile player for them, and the addition of Terrell McClain will serve this DL well early on #Falcons

This morning, I called this my favorite stat this year. But then I thought that was an exaggeration. It's my favorite stat for the #Cardinals.

Here's my favorite stat for every other team. #Thread
#Falcons in 2016: 1.57 TDs per FG attempt
2017: 0.85 TDs per FG att
#Ravens
Joe Flacco was 7th in pass atts in 2017, never threw for 300 yds, averaged <200 per game.
