  1. ~~//~~ Pro Wrestling: Smackdown vs Raw ~~\\~~

    I think that's just a case of them dumping off the excess backstock on Walmart and hoping people don't notice,
  2. ~~//~~ Pro Wrestling: Smackdown vs Raw ~~\\~~

    This I agree with, though I think it's more a case that he carried an injury into last night (I think he actually, ironically, tweaked that thigh/quad on the go-home Smackdown show). I think Angle could get carried through a match by someone like AJ, Finn, probably even Jason Jordan (with a good match agent and a lot of planning on spots), and more than likely Hunter (I just worry that some of Hunter's regular shtick/moves would require Kurt to do some selling on his own that his body may not make easy on him - the jumping facebreaker into the knee for instance). Honestly, I'm hoping they actually play up the "visible" injury Angle carried in last night (the taped up thigh) because that actually gives something halfway decent for Jordan to be upset about (Daddy pulled me because of an injury but then went in there injured himself). After Jordan's backstage interview last night and the "I hope Triple H gets eliminated then the team wins," bit, they've set things up perfectly for Jordan to turn heel, screw Kurt, and ally with Trips and Steph. Whether they'll do it is another question - knowing Vince, I wouldn't put it past him to keep Jordan face and make him Triple H and Steph's whipping boy as a tool to needle at Kurt for several months to "try and get Jordan some crowd sympathy." Thing is, even if they did that, the logical path out of it is a heel turn for Jordan. I just saw a ton of people whining on Twitter last night about them not "making new stars" or putting over the young talent last night and I'm like... "Did people miss the 7-foot tall babyface that was completely and utterly made?" I mean, Cena ate a clean pin where Balor contributed to his finish. Orton ate a clean pin to Braun. Nakamura and Roode were put out by the young guy who was the biggest aim of the match to make and put over (Braun), not to one of the part-timers. Joe and Finn were eliminated, but they were so by the two guys active with the most World Title reigns (and Cena still took care of Joe in the sense that he put in two AA's before getting the pin rather than just a single one). Burial would have been letting one of those guys get pinned by Shane.

    People need to go reread the term "bury" because several of you are getting it wrong... again. No one was buried last night - at least not in the Mens 5v5. Just because Hunter didn't eat someone's finish for a pinfall doesn't mean he was burying them. He SOLD for Nakamura and Roode. And - though because he doesn't seem to fit into the narratives of a lot of people - he sold like hell for Stroman (even Texansfan who was at the event expanded on how much further he went in the sell job after the PPV went off air) who is the youngest talent that was in that ring and came out looking like a made man and is finally minted as a babyface (he's been treated like one by the crowd for a while now, but he'll finally be booked as one).

    Sam Roberts. He's actually a really good guy, really knowledgeable (probably moreso than most of us), and a massive fan. He does a SiriusXM show out of New York in addition to his weekly wrestling podcast. He's just generally unpopular with smark followers because he's "too positive" and too willing to "look for the positive" or to get excited over booking that doesn't involve the new, indy guys.
  5. Texans RB D'Onta Foreman tears Achilles

    I suppose it depends on the severity of the tear. If it's a rupture, for a RB, that's a major concern, because so much of his game is about planting and driving forward. And explosiveness. Achilles injuries can sap that big time. I mean, most recently Branden Oliver tore his Achilles last season and made it back for the season opener this year, but he went down in a preseason game, not in Week 11. Foreman's almost assured starting the season on the PUP next year.
  6. Week 11 GDT

    I was actually going to say that if referring specifically to the run defense, it's missing Dareus some, but also Zach Brown and Nickell Roby-Coleman. But don't mind KYDI, he pops up every time the Buffalo run defense has a poor outing this season to try and suggest the loss of Dareus is the culprit; and he does it purely to try to hype the Jags more for trading for Dareus. Though, props on the Duby reference. Even if it may take someone as old as Vike Daddy to remember him.
  7. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Yes, it's massive (and for that I apologize), but you'll all be thanking me for this later.
  8. Week 11 - Rams at Vikings

    McVay handled that presser about as well as could be expected.
  9. Week 11 GDT

    If you're defining career as "NFL career," Cousins has played at least half of the starts he'll have as a pro. It's not like his body didn't take wear and tear while he played out his full eligibility at Michigan State.
  10. Week 11 GDT

    When did @ianlewis16 become a Jags fan?
  11. ~~//~~ Pro Wrestling: Smackdown vs Raw ~~\\~~

    I saw one opinion on Twitter (and I bring it up because it's from someone who is/was an FF poster) who said the best match on the whole show was 1 1/2 star at-best. It made for a hearty chuckle.
  12. Week 11 GDT

    Point of order: Cousins is turning 30 next year. Not exactly "young" by NFL standards. If you're not including Stafford, Cousins shouldn't be included either.
  13. Week 11 GDT

    I don't know that he necessarily got fired, so much as they brought in a defensive-minded HC and that guy opted to promote their secondary coach - who had been one of Wade's lieutenants (I still stand by my belief that Reggie Herring has always been Wade's main lieutenant since he was HC in Dallas), figuring that he was the "long-term" plan and wanted to ensure maintaining him. And - along with their interior pass-rush taking a notable dip and their inability to properly cover TE's which I still think is somewhat a scheme issue - they kind of shot themselves in the foot getting too far ahead of themselves, similar to how the Raiders did on the other side of the ball letting Musgrave walk in order to promote/protect Downing.
  14. Week 11 GDT

    Everyone needs goals.
  15. Week 11 GDT

    Little of Column A, little of Column B; they're not mutually exclusive. The Broncos defense this season isn't as good as it has been in years past (the loss of Wade has been apparent), but it's not like their talent suddenly fell off a cliff either.
