Pasqualoni heading to the Lions


Multiple sources confirmed that Paul Pasqualoni has left BC for the Detroit Lions. An official announcement will come later in the week. While this could be a great opportunity for Pasqualoni, this is bad, bad news for BC and Addazio.

Pasqualoni is considered one of the best Defensive Line coaches in all of football. His ability to shape young players was clear as soon as he arrived at BC. The DLine has been one of the bright spots of the past two years. But beyond coaching up the unit, Pasqualoni also served as a sounding board for Addazio. You could often see the two confer on the sidelines when it was clear they weren't talking DLine issues. And beyond game management, I would presume Pasqualoni provided advice and wisdom year round. It will be tough to replace Pasqualoni with one coach who can provide the same sort of guidance while also making future stars on the DLine.

Despite a few bumps, Addazio has done a good job replacing staffers. I hope he has another Pasqualoni-type lined up. BC will need it.

All good things come to an end, it seems - especially when all members of a team are clicking well.

Someone always moves in.

Best of luck, PP and a good way to finish your career.

This is an opportunity for Addazio to choose a new DL coach who is a good fit for BC.

Let's hope he succeeds and there is not a big adjustment for our returning players.

Someone always moves on.....

Teddy Errico said...

Just another excuse come November 25th.......

Rich Conboy said...

Tough loss--esp given that after this season we have no idea what we have at DE.

Georgia Eagle said...

We will give the Lions Dazoshit as an added bonus.

mod34b said...

Right on GeorgiaEagle. Take Dazoshit. Please.

And no ATL this is not “ bad, bad news for BC and Addazio.“ Bad news is Dazoshit remains our coach. Bad bad news is looking at Nancy Pelosi clown face on TV

Daz’s Daddy left and now he has to do things without the comfort of approval from Daddy

Why would PP turn down a prestige NFL job? For Daz? Ha.

Daz seems like an a-h to work for - hence the frequent departures (brown, day etc)

knucklehead said...

Dazoshit, clownface, dazzs' daddy, PP, asshole.

A hypocrite at work.

Crybaby Mod. Giving it out but cannot take it.

knucklehead said...

Zero sports knowledge to boot. There is always turnover in football coaching. Not sure how getting promoted to NFL DC from BC DL coach makes Dazzler look bad. Was PP as you fondly call him supposed to stay at Boston College?

knucklehead said...

. .. . Are citing Ryan Day as a loss for BC? Even after the years of time you spent "spitting on him" here.

Please. Admit that you are.

knucklehead said...

Mod you are a joke. Your garbage has to be called out because nobody else here has the capability.

mod34b said...

Thanks Bitch. You’re crushing it

Aquila said...

Crushing it!!! Keep it up!

Georgia Eagle said...

Knuck, quit picking on mod
Mod, stop letting Knuck get under your skin. (There, the boys have been scolded and sent to their rooms.)

JBQ said...

PP was great for BC and will be missed. I don't think that Daz survives without him. If AB doesn't bounce back, they are in real trouble. Riding the back of the "big hoss" will not work against 9 man lines.

Aquila said...

JBQ, keep crushing it!!!

knucklehead said...

No. The fact that Mod is claiming now, after 3 years of daily attacks, that Ryan Day was a loss to the program is completely ridiculous.

knucklehead said...

Aquila. What does that translate to English? "Mod."

mod34b said...

You are just so interested in me, bitch. Oh my.

Aquila said...

Crush it. Don't be crushed...

NEDofSavinHill said...

PP did a quality job for the Eagles. We thought the sky was falling when Brown left as DC but Reid, PP and the other coaches on defense excelled. Most of the same staff will return. BC is going to roll in 2018 no matter who the QB is.

Guido said...

Sorry , Ned , but they will roll only with a healthy ANTHONY BROWN. The QB position is the KEY FACTOR in winning. Just ask any Patriots fan. As far as coaching , his (PP) loss will be felt in more ways than one. He had recruiting influence in Connecticut and the State of New York. In addition , he was a calm ,cool head coach at Syracuse - great winning record. His presence helped to keep Addazio SOMEWHAT under control. And by the way , he never wavered in taking on quality opponents like someone I am familiar with at Boston College. For example , just look at his first two Out of Conference opponents in 1998 (my son was a student that year).He scheduled two NATIONALLY ranked opponents in the first two games of the year - Tennessee and the University of Michigan. Back to my original premise - a healthy ANTHONY BROWN is THE KEY TO BC and a great record next year !!!!!!!!!!!

knucklehead said...

Retarded inconsistency has always interested me. I don't understand it. When someone claims superior intelligence and class and then doesn't really have it.

knucklehead said...

. . . Meaning you Mod. Crybaby.

Aquila said...

Yea, Mod. You’re not crushing it, man.

Joseph said...

no, M34 seeing your bs and ignorant tirades here is BAD news just as it
is when the president of our country calls people treasonous because they did not applaud him.

Bravesbill said...

Well the BC basketball team still sucks but good Lord is Robinson good.

mod34b said...

The long awaited return of Joseph. Well I’ll be. Thanks for the comments.

Georgia Eagle said...

Joseph the commie is back. No, idiot. Trump criticized the Democrats when they didn't stand for the country and patriotic Americans.

bceagle91 said...

ESPN has our incoming football class ranked 14th. In the ACC. We all know there's a crapshoot aspect to recruiting, but this isn't too encouraging.

Big Jack Krack said...

I prefer the narrative and comments on this blog to be about BC sports - particularly football and basketball. But political comments sneak in.

Georgia Eagle - you are a Veteran, and I salute you.

But why do you call Joseph a "commie"?

I'm an Army Veteran as well. Being a Veteran doesn't make one right or wrong, patriotic or unpatriotic.

I don't know Joseph, but he is probably for democracy in this country, and I'm on that side.

I once met a man on an elevator at a hotel in Bangor Maine in the mid-80's. He was kind enough to chat with me when we reached to floor to the garage. This man was a Veteran of WWII and a B-24 Combat Pilot who flew many missions over Germany, like my father, who was a bombardier.

This man was against the Vietnam War and many other things - but he wanted only the best for our country. He believed in progress, and the essential goodness of mankind and the autonomy of the individual, and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties.

He believed that man's capacity for justice makes democracy possible.

The man was a Patriot in the true sense of the word, and he was trounced by Richard Nixon in the 1972 Presidential Election.

The man was George McGovern - who didn't fair very well in 1984 either. He aspired to lead this nation at an uncertain time in 1972, recognizing that it was a daunting task and that he would have to draw upon the time-tested moral and political principles of the Founders of this country - liberty, equality, justice, truthfulness, and compassion for all of God's creatures.

George McGovern would say that he fought in WWII so that professional football players could feel free to take a knee during the National Anthem to show that not all is well with our country - to protest against racial injustice and police violence (by some poorly trained or plain bad police).

I say the same. We are Americans and we are free to express ourselves, even knowing that a heavy price may be paid.

Trump criticized Democrats for not applauding him during the SOTU speech.

Unfortunately, President Trump doesn't understand the word treason or the word treasonous.

Dissing Trump is not treasonous.

President Trump's inclination to injustice makes democracy necessary.

Go BC.

Georgia Eagle said...

Because his comments are always to the left of Karl Marx and he is an annoying pissant .

Guido said...

Why don't people discuss sports in an intelligent fashion . I will need to consider the Premium Board. Go to a political website or whatever if your inclination is the "Rotten" disgusting swamp sometimes referred to as politics !!!!!!!!!!!!

Georgia Eagle said...

Lighten up. This forum has always been an undisciplined free-fire zone with no rules or regulations or supervision. Football is over, the basketball team sucks and hockey is having another down year. What else are we going to fill blog time with - discussions on the ping-pong team, the chess club, the uncommonly cold winter? What? How about the winter olympics ?

John said...

And former BC Women's Hockey players!

Go BC.

mod34b said...

Jack if you prefer the blog to be about sports why must you insert your very progressive and completely biased Democrat views on Trump. Dumping on Trump is not a universally held view. Trump is treasonous? Cops engage in brutality? What?

Restrain yourself. Although I understand Liberslism is s mental disorder.


I think you might be a commie too like Joseph and McGovern. Ha!!!

Georgia Eagle said...

Good old Mod. My most loyal ally. You and I are terrific at exposing the hypocricy on here.

Joseph said...

My goodness. Such a propensity to BS. I too am a veteran army officer. I took an oath to defend the country and constitution. That action did not preclude me from being critical of the president or any other elected official.

No charge of treason was made against Trump. He called those who did not approve of his speech by applauding, "treasonous". His words not mine.

Mod34 needs to have a lesson in analytical thinking and reading comprehension . Being constantly negative does not measure up. I don't know if BJK is a democrat or a republican or totally independent (like me). If he expresses ideas with which you disagree, that is not a sign of bias any more than you disagreeing with him.

Georgia needs to have a lesson in true American democracy. He probably has no idea of the definition of a "commie", but merely throws our what he thinks are insulting Trump-like pejoratives at anyone with whom he disagrees. Sincd being elected there has not been a poll that shows that Trump has the support of the majority of Americans. Of course he does not have "universal" approval or disapproval. No one ever has or will. That proves nothing like his insults against Corker and Rubio and Bush and Cruz. All that stuff is fake like his hair and claims of his weight and his regular taking credit for anything and everything.

I agree that this place would be best to a discussion of BC sports but it seems that when is swerves off track there is always a snarky opinion from a narrow minded non-thinking, non-accepting, non-American, non-democratic fraud. I have never come close to espousing any political theories that smack of socialism never mind the extreme form that is communism. I also don't believe in fascism. Nor, do I believe that Trump believes in any particular political philosophy. His driving "ism" is narcissism. He wants only to be perceived as an all powerful, perfect person. He always has to "win". He always must be "best" He always must be "great".

knucklehead said...

Joseph and Amazing Multicolored political views.

Joseph said...

Thanks, KH. But, I can't recall ever telling you about my political views. I sure have posted my thoughts on those that refuse to ever make a cogent, well-reasoned argument but rather choose to denigrate and demean those with whom they disagree. I have wondered why the Jesuit Ratio Studiorum went wrong in some cases. Where is the ability to put into words thoughts that result from intelligent, experienced, analytical thinking?

I don't know BJK but I would bet anything that, like me, he is neither socialist nor communist. What I see is that he is bright, thinking, and not given to junior high school behavior.

Ok so lets get back to BC sports. What is going to happen with Flores and the open defensive coordinator job with the Pats?

By the way here is some very interesting reading written by the father of the just disgraced Trump staffer about a GOP president that should be a model of presidential character that the current version should study.

mod34b said...

joseph, i took a look back.. you regularly broadcast your political views including the fact that you hate Trump and any limits on immigration.

you also have profess your luv for the most biased left wing rag in America, which tells all about your politics

you also regularly denigrate those who disagree with you. So in Addition to being A uberLIBERAL devotee (commie), you are dishonest. But as you know, those to things go together.

here what you sad not too long ago:

"The Globe being the Globe. Fortunately, nobody reads that rag or cares what they say."

This the absolute proof that M34b is the jerk of the first order. The globe is one on the top 5 most widely read papers in the country. Mod: Be quiet and stop proving that you are a fool.


So, still reading the Globe for news. I bet you are. ha!

Joseph said...

Thanks for the thoughtful comment, M34.

You call one of the most respected papers in the country "the most biased left wing rag in America" Not only is that your unsupported opinion is is at odds with the reality of circulation data. You have idea about whether I agree with everything that the Globe states editorially. None. Zero. I also read the NYtimes, the WAPO, the WSJ and a couple of others from time to time. I was always taught that being well read helps with thinking clearly and from the aspect of considered information. You don't seem to agree. Ok stay that way. Make sure that you would never read the Globe so that you know might for yourself what it contains. Let others tell you what it contains and what you think of it. Smart moves.

Yes I do watch Fox news. Yes I do watch Hannity when he shills for Trump. Yes I do see Fox and Friends every so often so that I can see the source of our national policy being formed.

You have no idea of what communism is and how it relates to socialism or fascism or progressive thought.

Disliking Trump has zero to do with political opinion. I have no real idea of his political values and neither does he. It it Trump that cares for Trump and only Trump. He is a confirmed serial liar. He is a confirmed serial philanderer. He is a confirmed misogynist.

I never have and never will advocate for unlimited immigration. My grandparents were immigrants like most of their associates. They built this country. BC exists because of the sons of immigrants. (and now, thank god, the daughters of immigrants).

And, if you think that you can insult me by saying that my mother wore army boots, you would be off the mark as usual, because she actually did when she also served.

knucklehead said...

Joseph,
You are silly.

Joseph said...

and here is another well crafted thoughtful argument. Is that from whence comes the moniker?

knucklehead said...

Joseph,
You think backwards.

Joseph said...

That's it. You have won the battle of wits with two overwhelming comments in a row. I know when I am in over my head. Congrats.

knucklehead said...

Joseph,
Like I said, you think backwards.

Fool. I didnt even say anything to you and run and hide.

Silly.
