  1. Zeke’s Holdout When does he fall out of the Top-4?

    What round do you have to grab Pollard in if you gamble on Zeke?
  2. The Milwaukee Yelichs Thread - Welp

    Last night felt like a must win to stay within 3 rather than 5. Still hoping we can start stringing series wins together for a run at the division.
  3. SURVIVOR POOL 14 - IT RISES AGAIN!!

    Favorite Team: Tennessee Titans Week 1 pick: Seattle Seahawks I have read all of the rules and agree to them. The most important rule is "Watch your Edits"
  4. Taylor Lewan Suspended First 4 Games

    This feels like someone (Pollard) trying to be relevant again and I disagree with him. Yes, there is a long list of substances that are banned. And when you're entire job depends on not having those in your system, it's your responsibility to make certain you are clean. Having said that, there is no guarantee that supplements list every single substance. And there's no guarantee Lewan just got sloppy and took something he thought was clean but included one of that long list of substances. You also get popped for "abnormally high" testosterone levels even if none of the banned substances showed up. So I find it hard to believe Pollard can definitively say Lewan knew what he was doing. This sounds more like he had an axe to grind and jumped on the opportunity.

    Whats the polygraph reference to? Is he saying he's innocent and took a polygraph to prove it?

    Flashbacks to Jeffress blowing NLCS game 2 last year...
  7. The Milwaukee Yelichs Thread - Welp

    I think I recall us losing every game of a five game set in Pittsburgh last year.
  8. Even as late as 2012, he was being ranked in the top 10, 8th in this article. But I don't want to turn this into a Fisher thread. Props to Mac and Eddie!
  9. Fisher rightly deserves blame for the way his Titans and Rams tenures ended but people seem to forget he took a downright dreadful Oilers team, kept them respectable through a tough move to Tennessee playing in empty stadiums, built them into a SB contender, lost nearly every good player in a cap purge and then rebuilt the team into a contender again in '08 (with a 36 year old Kerry Collins as his QB!). His style of smashmouth football, tough defense and clock-killing offense was not popular but I always felt lucky to have him in those years. He seemed to get more out of the team than other coaches would have. Sadly, when his name comes up, people just quote his mediocre lifetime record with no context of the team he took over, the move from Houston or the cap purges and talk about him like he's the least qualified head coach in history. I think that's a short-sighted take.
  10. Not to mention, he's limited by the height of the ceiling in the ScotiaBank Arena. If he hits that, it's blown dead. I feel like this could be its own "30 for 30" special.
  11. Offseason Thread

    And the last place the NFL is heading is toward "feed the workhorse back 30 times a game". Now if it works, I won't be complaining, but I'm not sure there's a blueprint for that in 2019.
  12. Offseason Thread

    Great point. I expect Mariota to play well enough this year that we have to extend him. If that's not the case, money frees up.
  13. Yes, his normal shot attempt at the basket lasted 1.5 seconds. I'm wondering if he just throws it as high as he can in the arena without trying to make it. Would have been a crazy thing to see but if he can get 3 second hang-time, the game is over. I don't think the shot clock violation is called until the shot hits the court again.
  14. Crazy question: If Iggy had waited until either someone came at him or the 3 second mark and then heaved a shot as high as he could, would time have expired? Yes, it would be a shot clock violation but not until the shot hits the court again, right? Those last two seconds would have run out. If a shot is in the air as the shot-clock expires, it doesn't freeze the game clock before the shot is complete. Of course thinking that fast on your feet would be incredibly rare.
  15. Offseason Thread

    That's gonna become a question at some point and I'm pretty nervous giving him a huge extension. I love Henry but he's had long inconsistent stretches and even if last year's "awakening" continues this year, can we trust that's going to stay the norm for 3-5 more years? This feels like a decision where the "smart answer" is to let someone else pay him. As much as I'd hate to lose him...
