  2. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Game of Thrones is such a good show that you should honestly watch the first 7 seasons and pretend the entire thing ends there. After that, there's really no point.
  3. 2019 Preseason

    It's just OTAs right now, but the many changes of this offseason are starting to work through the system. Bear in mind that OTA play is non contact. Pride has an article. Here are some quick takes: https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2019/5/23/18637748/observations-and-notes-from-day-three-of-chiefs-otas I think the #Chiefs like Blake Bell and Deon Yelder for [TE]2, but don't sleep on former QB John Lovett. People may be saying WR Sammy Watkins "looks incredible" but to me, he looked the same as last year -- and that's good enough. Andrew Wylie has switched from RG to LG on the first-team offensive line. Reid: "[Wylie] is one of the better athletes we have up front there... I don't think people know that. He's a good athlete. He gets out there, and he runs...[He's] able to lock on people, glue on to people in the screen game...I don't think that's a huge adjustment for him." Mahomes, for what it's worth, was in midseason form when it came to mixing in different receivers. It didn't matter if your name was Sammy Watkins, Damien Williams or Gehrig Dieter. Like last year, Mahomes finds whoever is open. Mahomes also said that watching video cuts has opened his eyes. Sometimes he tried a fancy downfield throw when a shorter one was available for a 1st down. I wish we were getting more from the defense. J
  4. Clowney gets Franchise Tag

    Raider fan here who always thought Clowney fit our system better even thought he doesn't play to 'what could be' We have our 1st and 3rd and we had the Bears 1st and 3rd. I'm not happy after the draft and think Ferrell/Crosby will not be 'enough' and think Chucky might be wiling to deal. If I'm Mayock I'd offer the Bears 1st/3rd, or Bears 1st our 3rd maybe even our 1st and 3rd for Clown boy. With a contract that has escalators to make him highest paid if he reaches indy and team incentives. 18/20 mil for 50% effort expected from reading the earlier posts. 22/24 if all pro and beats out Mack in pro bowl and 25 per season if AFC champ game reached. This would 'hopefully' inspire him to give his all and take it to another level. I'm worried about the Raiders pass rush and know 'Pass rushers are hard to find' so admit a mistake and compensate and move on IMO... So would you accept these offers? Lets talk.
  5. MLB Regular Season 1.0

    Austin Riley with a game tying HR and then game winning RBI. Good start for the kid.
  6. Bucs cut DT Gerald McCoy

    You need him more than we do.
  7. What are you reading? V1

    Reading The Swamp Fox. The Patriot was a complete and total crock of ****. Very interesting read, and I'm glad I didn't gloss over it because it gives a very interesting portrayal of the war in the south during the American Revolution that most other books on the war seem to gloss over completely.
  8. Bucs cut DT Gerald McCoy

    Tough sell. I don't know who would be the odd man out in a DL that has Ogunjobi, McCoy, and Sheldon Richardson on it. Richardson might be the worst player on that interior DL believe it or not. Man having McCoy would be amazing. Plenty of snaps available and you'd think the more established vets would get the "start" but that will be Freddie's decision Dorsey can't promise him anything. I'd certainly play Ogunjobi the most snaps, he has youth on his side.
  9. Tenet (Christopher Nolan) - July 2020

    I could swear I had read that this movie has a sci fi angle. I'm praying that's true. I have very little interest in fiction of this type without some kind of sci fi angle.
  10. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Still well worth the watch. I binge watched S1 today. As someone else said, the first four seasons are probably the greatest TV show of all time. And S5-S7 is some very quality TV that still beats any other show. Yeah, S8 sucked and was a rushed mess, but I still 100% recommend to watch.
  11. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Good thing is that HBO will probably never get involved in a series where the source material isn't finished again. That was their mistake right at the beginning. Literally none of these major problems would have happened if they'd just waited until they had the completed series. I'm still okay with it. Could have been so much better, but I feel like the books will have the same ending, just with considerably better writing to get there. Take your vitamin C and get on a treadmill, GRRM. Hang in there for another 10 years to finish both books.
  12. I've had moments where I've lost a lot less money than he just lost and been a lot less calm lol
  13. 2019 Packers Forum League- PHASE 2 (GO TO PAGE 3)

    My draft availability is super open in the evenings. And almost any Sunday is pretty safe.
  14. "GoT extra / NFL MVP" tag was a classic. Danica might not be so happy though lol.
  15. I respect you as a poster so I won't make the snarky comment I want to make, but Klay has not been playing like a trash can offensively. He's a streaky shooter obviously but missing shots =\= playing poorly. It just means he's missing shots.
  16. I’m happy for Aaron looking at that pic.
  17. Giannis is going to need a monster game or else he's going to feel the wrath of criticism.
  18. it's not really for postups, unless they switch Lowry or FVV onto him. It's more to get open layups/dunks from Giannis' defender being out of position for a split second. Or open threes because the PG defender has to hold Giannis until his man gets back into position. Stuff like this:
  19. Total sidebar - lol @ the MIL owner's daughter wearing a Pusha-T t-shirt. Drake is probably eating this W up, though lol.
  20. aSK anything: 5.0: Designated Steve-vivor

    Man, I’m over 50 and thoroughly enjoyed this series. Dang I may have watch it again sometime in the near future. But I get it, taste/preferences are subjective.
  21. The Batman is Robert Pattinson

    Again, it was how they were done. Lex was laughably miscast, poorly written and directed and the motives driving his character to hate Superman were a ******* joke. Go look at Superman or Justice League Animated Series to see how Lex should be done. It wouldnt be hard, but WB finds away to make it seem hard. Darkseid is SUPPOSED to be overly powerful...and in most cases, is a boring character. However, the problem with him in this movie was that they tried to put 8 different storylines in one movie, and it ended up being wasted. The Death of Superman could have been done much much better and had a far greater impact. But since WB wanted to catch up to Marvel, they decided to cram a bunch of stories and character development into one movie, and it fell flat. Meh. He did amazing with Begins and TDK. I thought TDKR completely fell apart in the 3rd act and kind of ruined the movie. Man of Steel was okay, but the tone was too grim for a Superman movie. There was no levity outside of a few bad jokes. Honestly, I think the Dark Knight Trilogy hurt the current DC universe....because WB was scared to venture too far away from that darker tone because of the success of the Batman movies AND the failures of movies like Batman & Robin and Green Lantern. On top of that, I think they were trying to be different from Marvel. However, it just didnt work. I mean, you can have a Superman movie be darker, but it still needs to make Superman feel like Superman, and while I absolutely enjoyed parts of Man of Steel....it felt too pretentious for a Superman movie . It was trying to take itself more seriously than it should have. Oh....and Goyer's dialogue was laughably bad. Bottom line....they have never had the right group of people to make the DC universe really come to life on the big screen....and I dont think they ever will.
  22. Are you smarter than our front office v.2019

    Just my opinion, but I think we got him in Flacco.
