  1. Why do Texans fans hate Bill O'Brien?

    Damn good-looking guy, though, you'll have to admit!!
  2. Saints sign WR Rishard Matthews; UPDATE: Matthews retired

    Okay, yes, he may have quit one or two times- but that Instagram Farewell is one of the kindest, gentlest, most-moving speeches I have ever read! A couple of phrases in there didn't even have curse words in them! I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I felt the quick tears spring to my eyes at this heartfelt "Goodbye To Football" speech. What a guy!
  3. Lions sign Josh Johnson

    You can't help but love this guy! He's pursuing a Life Quest to suit up (if not always play) for every team in the NFL! Now, having signed with Detroit, looks like he just might achieve his goal!!!

  6. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    Ah, then, @celestial, what say you now??? https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2848922-preseason-week-1-takeaways-grading-nfls-top-rookies-from-thursdays-games#slide3 Haskins threw two interceptions, including an atrocious pick-six on a wheel route. He sailed a pass into the waiting arms of Greedy Williams, and he finished 8-of-14 for 117 yards. He did complete a couple of nice deep throws—including his first of the night on an impressive roll-out—but the Redskins offense generated just three points on his six possessions under center. He appears to have the physical tools, and his receivers weren't providing a lot of help Thursday. There's room for improvement, but this wasn't the type of debut that'll move the 22-year-old to the top of the quarterback depth chart in D.C. He'll need a stronger performance next week against the Cincinnati Bengals. Grade: D+
  7. Preseason Week 1: Giants vs Jets

    Well, GYATT-DAYAMM, Daniel Jones! https://nypost.com/2019/08/08/daniel-jones-shows-glimpse-of-giants-future-with-perfect-first-drive/
  8. Packers cut ties with 2016 2nd Round OT Jason Spriggs

    Yes.....YES! Humiliated to say that, at the time, I had seriously bought into the Jerry Reese Measurables Kool-Aid, his infamous scout-by-numbers method which prioritized height-weight-arm length numbers, and Combine results, over such trivalities as "game tapes", and whether or not a prospect could actually play the game of football. Reese had scored heavily (or perhaps lucked into) on his drafting of Jason Pierre-Paul (the ten-fingered version), and henceforth rated draft picks by their numbers. Thus, Flowers. I had hoped that the Giants might draft the mighty and old-school tackle/guard Brandon Scherff that year; after the villainous Redskins scooped him up with an earlier first-round pick, I, and other Giants' fans, had to accept the consolation prize of the mammoth Flowers, who did after all have great size, admirable long arms, and an impressive bench-press score. Warnings of his clumsy footwork and awkward hand placement fell, as they say, on deaf ears. I spent the next couple of seasons waiting for Ereck Flowers to become the Second Coming of Orlando Pace; as is well-known, he instead was revealed as a bust of Trent Proportions. I did not, however, buy a wall-poster of Ereck Flowers; I have at least minimal standards for my Man-Crush embarrassments.
  9. Packers cut ties with 2016 2nd Round OT Jason Spriggs

    Yeah, well, okaaaay, but I'll admit I really bought into the Jason Spriggs hype in 2016; AND, as a New York fan, I hope the Giants bring him in for a look now! I mean, that 40-yard time! That shuttle! Those 31 bench-press reps! And the guy is really, really ripped! Probably some of you guys are going to poke cruel fun at me for this, but Full Disclosure anyway: at the time of the draft I purchased a Jason Spriggs Commemorative Wall Poster of the guy from the Underwear Olympics, and, uhhh, I sort of pinned it up on my bedroom door, and maybe I should take it down, now, 3 years later, BUT, like I say, the Giants are thin at OT, and.......who knows???
  10. Former Panther C Ryan Kalil signs with Jets

    Give The Brother a chance!! Hey-hey! Any chance the Jets will now acquire MATT Kalil, stalwart left-tackle and former high-first-round draft pick, from the Houston Texans with their embarrassment of tackle riches, thus reuniting "The Fighting Kalils" O-line tandem from days of yore with Carolina? "I gotcher back, Li'l Fella!"
  11. Hmmmmm- Mayo Clinic overview on "cardiac ablation". https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/cardiac-ablation/about/pac-20384993 "Cardiac ablation is a procedure that can correct heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias). Cardiac ablation works by scarring or destroying tissue in your heart that triggers or sustains an abnormal heart rhythm. In some cases, cardiac ablation prevents abnormal electrical signals from entering your heart and, thus, stops the arrhythmia. Cardiac ablation usually uses long, flexible tubes (catheters) inserted through a vein or artery in your groin and threaded to your heart to deliver energy in the form of heat or extreme cold to modify the tissues in your heart that cause an arrhythmia. Cardiac ablation is sometimes done through open-heart surgery, but it's often done using catheters, making the procedure less invasive and shortening recovery times. Mayo Clinic's approach Types Atrial flutter ablation Pulmonary vein isolation SVT ablation Ventricular tachycardia ablation Why it's done Cardiac ablation is a procedure that's used to correct heart rhythm problems. When your heart beats, the electrical impulses that cause it to contract must follow a precise pathway through your heart. Any interruption in these impulses can cause an abnormal heartbeat (arrhythmia), which can sometimes be treated with cardiac ablation. Ablation isn't usually your first treatment option. Ablation is a treatment option for people who: Have tried medications to treat an arrhythmia without success Have had serious side effects from medications to treat arrhythmias Have certain types of arrhythmias that respond well to ablation, such as Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and supraventricular tachycardia Have a high risk of complications from their arrhythmias, such as sudden cardiac arrest"
  12. Veteran T Donald Penn set to sign with Redskins

    Hunh! He speaks highly of YOU! "Hi, there!"
  13. Trent Williams vows not to play for the Skins

    Oh now, @Woz, come come! As a Giants fan (sort of) who waited patiently for Ereck Flowers to develop for seventeen years (was it?), I think that Redskins fans just maaaay be in for a pleasant surprise! After all, Flowers was the NINTH OVERALL draft pick in the first round for the Giants, back in the Jerry Reese Golden Age of Drafting, wherein all decisons were made according to size measurements and workout results- no sense watching all those boring game tapes, know what I mean? Reese, afflicted with hubris after his scout-by-number system paid off in the jackpot of Jason Pierre-Paul, kept reaching for athletic freaks, without regard for the minor question of could they actually play football. Hence, Flowers: he's big! He's strong! He has long arms! AND, he was a high first-round pick, as noted above. You'll soon discover that Ereck Flowers provides everything your team needs in a left tackle- uhhhh, as long as it doesn't involve pass protection, run blocking, hand placement, an ability to move his feet, or a willingness to learn. Pick, pick, pick, ya know? Sure as the Cherry Blossoms turn out in the spring in D.C., watch for Ereck Flowers to bloom in the fall!!!
  14. Giants WR Golden Tate suspended 4 games

    Actually, Golden Tate knew all along that the forbidden ingredient was Maple Bars. He took them knowingly, he just thought that the store, at 3:00 AM, was open, is all !
  15. Texans sign Punter Bryan Anger

    Now, now!!! True, yes, the Jags felt comfortable (apparently) riding the passing wizardry of Blaine Gabbert, at the time - and who can blame them? (Sexy photo of Blaine Gabbert appearing in the ballet, The Tooth Fairy. ) BUT- credit where credit is due!- they also, with admirable foresight, had a Five-Year Plan is place, and had already identified Blake "Wonky Mechanics" Bortles as their QB of the future, two years forward! Only the canniest of GM's have the acumen to plan several years ahead of time for what they expect their team to look like! Besides: I seem to recall a couple of the Jags fanboys defending the selection of a PUNTER in Round 3 (over, goodness, Russell Wilson!) as a clever maneuver, because of the anticipated benefits of Good Field Position, Vastly-Improved Special Team Stats, Greater Locker-Room Harmony, and quamma quamma quamma. God be with Ye, Bryan Anger, and thanks for all the thrilling punts o'er the years!
