    What did you think it would make?
  3. Toy Story 4

    It made the most in its opening than the other 3. Studios might’ve thought it would’ve made a lot more but it’s the 4th one of the series, did they think it was going to make Incredibles 2 money or something?
  4. NBA Draft Thread: NO trades 4 to ATL (8/17/35)

    Ingles averaged 6 assists per game (7 per 36) as the 3rd ball handler / facilitator for the Jazz last season, he's an excellent playmaker. Cam Reddish had more turnovers than assists last season.
  5. Toy Story 4

    I would argue they weren't adjusted lower for the disappointing summer, but adjusted up as the savior of the summer. It opened lower than I or anyone thought, but this still set a franchise record and was a huge opening. I'm simply trying to say that, contrary to your original point, people still care for this franchise.

    To be fair, they weren't fined $50,000 today...oh hi, Knicks.
  8. Goldfish's Slightly Too Early 2019 Season Predictions - 32 Up

    32. Miami Dolphins What’s New in 2019: Pretty much everything from the coaching side. They have a brand new first time head coach in Brian Flores, who climbed the ranks at the Patriots to become their unofficial defensive coordinator last year. There are first time coordinators in Chad O'Shea, the former Patriots wide receiver coach who will run the offense and Patrick Graham, who'll run the defense. Graham has been a long-time assistant at various stops and was most recently coaching the linebackers in Green Bay. Miami will also have a brand new starting quarterback, be it future HOF candidate Ryan Fitzpatrick or Josh Rosen who came onboard during the draft. Roster Strengths: Secondary – Three very serviceable names in the safety rotation right now in versatile Minkah Fitzpatrick Reshad Jones and TJ McDonald. That concentrated strength on an otherwise shallow roster suggests the latter could be traded before the reason starts. Xavien Howard is a potential lockdown corner on one side and Bobby McCain is a decent slot corner with some versatility to play safety. A third name at corner needs to emerge to put this crop among the better secondary groups in the NFL. Elsewhere - The interior defensive line has a potentially decent 1-2 punch in Devon Godchaux, who exceeded all expectations as a 5th round rookie last year, and new 1st rounder Christian Wilkins. Linebacker also has a potentially solid tandem in Jerome Baker and Raekwon McMillan, those two showing anything in order to see less of the grossly overpaid Kiko Alonso would be a good sign. The receiver spots have talent, but desperately needs to find a run of health of some consistency. Roster Weaknesses: Edge – Starting defensive ends right now are draft bust to date Charles Harris and one of a rotation of NFL fringe talent (Jonathan Woodard, Tank Carradine) looking to start opposite. It's not pretty. Offensive line – Right now the starting trio inside is likely to comprise of solid new rookie Michael Deiter (assuming he wins a job) entering his first NFL season, plus two of Chris Reed, Daniel Kilgore or Jesse Davis. Laremy Tunsil has been inconsistent, but has all-pro physical gifts at left tackle. The right side will be won in camp, but potentially in a ‘least-worst’ kinda way. Jordan Mills has built a whole career out of being the least worst option. Depth – This is a poorly constructed roster with a frightening lack of depth at most roster positions and little to protect Miami from potential decimation if injuries occur at key spots Breakout Player: Minkah Fitzpatrick – Perennial breakout candidates Devante Parker and Kenyan Drake could still surprise, but Fitzpatrick seems more likely to take a next step towards pro bowl level play entering his second season after a kinda solid first season where he was just moved around too often. How they can win in 2019: I think their best chance to win is in a scenario where Josh Rosen wins the starting quarterback job and deserves to do so. After that has happened, he needs to display the kind of talent which led some to believe he was the best quarterback in an exceptional quarterback class only one year ago. The offensive line will definitely need to play above expectations for that to happen and the new offensive scheme will probably have to shield them to help that get there. There is talent at receiver and a group with a nice complimentary skill-set if they can find an effective way to utilize it. Perhaps Mike Gesikcki can be that X-factor in his second season after a pretty miserable rookie year. The running game doesn't have an obvious volume back in its locker, so perhaps can find creative ways to use Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage as receivers. On defense, the coaching staff are going to have to be creative about creating pressure and the back-end will have to hold up at key spots for that to happen. The defense ranked 31st against the run in 2018 and the addition of Christian Wilkins will help, but his addition alone won't be a main solution or even what he's best at. Defensive players who were part of that problem last year, need to be a big of the solution in 2019. They don't have a choice. Predicted record 2019: 2-14 - The Dolphins haven't set themselves up to win in 2019 and it would be a minor miracle to see them do that on a regular basis. The new regime will need to light a fire underneath several under-performing talents on the roster for them to have success and have their own inexperience to overcome.

    Listening to CWood you'd think that Jeanie and Rob P have built multiple powerhouse dynasty's and have 15 executive of the year awards under the belt.
  12. 2019 Offseason Trade Rumors & Free Agency Thread

    Toronto has a huge Chinese population. Toronto is ridiculously multicultural. It has a further reach than you may be giving credit. Ill get this out of the way yes L.A. is a bigger market than Toronto and all of Canada in terms of basketball fans. Basketball is growing all over the country it was an absolute non factor when I began watching the nba 18 or so years ago. Basketball will never be as big as hockey in Canada that is also true. It may be a lazy anti LA argument but I think it’s a factor for him. Yea I get the brand thing etc etc I’m saying he wants to go home and he doesn’t seem to be found of cold weather. This is a Kawhi centric argument I’m not trying to generalize or put L.A. down. If Kawhi really does care more about brand more so then winning right now then sure he can go to LA. I’ve never disputed LA being a bigger market or potential for maximizing his brand I think you are short selling Toronto a bit. My understanding is he wants to win first and foremost and it’s already been proven he can win here. Look I did say Kawhi will eventually go to California. That’s true and I 100% believe that. I think the original point is that it was a joke that Kawhi should consider staying and that he’s as good as gone whole thing that I was trying to dispel. Is it better for the nba as a whole to have their best player not play in Canada? Yes. Does it cripple the league if he does stay in Canada? No. VC was the biggest thing to ever happen to the raptors and brought them national recognition and Kawhi is a better player than peak VC I hate VC now but I can’t diminish what he was for a 4-5 year period in Toronto and what he did for basketball in Canada. Kawhi is currently doing what VC did for a new generation.

    It has happened time and time again.
  14. Which Ex-Player Talking Head is the Biggest Phony

    I mean what he said was dumb, but I don't see how that makes him phony. I don't think just because you were a bad player in the NFL means you can't criticize someone that may be better than you, otherwise every fan that slights a player is a phony too.
  15. The STL Cardinals Thread - TINSTAAPP

    Guessing Carlos. If they are set on leaving him down in the bullpen. If Brebbia gets some much needed rest, he’d be a good choice.

  17. Random Raider Stuff

    Josh Jacobs deserves a Blind Side/Michael Oher type movie tbh: https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/josh-jacobs-alabama-nfl-draft
  18. They are both idiots, but not really phony. (MJD fits this as well) Jennings had 1568 yards and 14 TDs over 19 games for a Super Bowl winner in 2010 and he made a couple pro bowls in his carer. I blame McNabb for Philly not winning a Super Bowl but he made 6 pro bowls and threw for 37k yards and 234 TDs. MJD only says stupid things when his lips are moving, but he was a very good pro RB Brady Quinn is another good example of a complete fake. He viciously hot-take attacked Wentz in late September 2017 about how he would not win many more games Wentz won more games in the following October(5) then Quinn did in his entire NFL career(4). Down goes the phony!
  19. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Little is a poor defender and doesn’t do anything particularly well. I would have been fine with him at 26 but he’s not going to make that big of an impact.
  20. Mandatory mini camp

    I don t think they have filled Wilson s spot, which is a little surprising
  21. 2019 Offseason Trade Rumors & Free Agency Thread

    You say that as if Jordan Clarkson and LNJ were possibly the difference between Cleveland winning and losing a title, which is beyond laughable. I'm not buying into ESPN hype, I'm buying into the Lakers giving all that up yet not securing the date of the trade. That should have been non-negotiable from LA's perspective, not "Well since we know you want to trade #4, we'll just hope the 3rd team wants to wait". GMing 101 and he failed to secure that date. All of them were poor besides McGee. Every single one.
  22. Dingo and Mission are probably scum. Hames messed up a hard claim. Naz is content not to really contribute.
  23. NFC East: Now half good!

    That doesnt even make sense logically. Hence why on average Dak throws the ball deeper and with more success than Wentz. It was just bad play calling.
  24. NFC East: Now half good!

    Or perhaps the OC was only calling what his offense was capable of managing.
  25. The Official Boxing Thread IV - Golovkin vs Alvarez

    Ref didn't even make him try to walk. Def shoulda stopped it.
  26. NFC East: Now half good!

    What metric is this? 34th out of 35th in what? If its conversions, it doesnt surprise me at all. Anything longer than about 5 yards and we would call a screen or a slant because our OC was pathetic.
