  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    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.

    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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    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...
  9. Serious question for you bball fans - Far be it from me to second-guess Steve Kerr and I haven't seen many Warriors games this year. Was it common for him to rest Steph and Dray at the same time leaving Klay out there with some marginal NBA talent? I realize KD is out, so maybe that lineup used to include him. They even went to break a couple times and returned with that same lineup. Seemed really odd to me.
  10. So, taking that into account, Turang will flirt with .400 when we eventually call him up!

    Just offered Rizzo and Vlad for Yelich. Sell high or hold onto Yeli?

    Wow. This is new-thread-worthy in my opinion.
  15. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    For what it's worth, I don't think that's correct. The dialog in IW is intentional and he says something like "I dreamt we had a child and named it after your uncle." I don't think he says "son" or "boy" in that scene. Can anyone confirm that?
