  1. Camp Battles

    Which ones are you looking most forward to watching? QB - Incumbent backup Bubblegum Hundley battles Deshone Zero Win Kizer. RB - Is Ty 10 Snaps Montgomery in danger of losing his starting role? Is Aaron Jones going to prove he deserves the starting spot? Is Jamaal Williams the most well-rounded, and thus most capable of being the starter? Will Mays or somebody else put it together? TE - Will Kendricks win the second spot by default and lack of any competition? WR - Adams, then Cobb, then who? Allison, Davis, Clark, Pearson, Kumerow, Moore, ESB, MVS, Yancey? RT - Bulaga will likely start the season injured, so who takes his spot? Madison? Murphy? Will Spriggs be healthy enough (or good enough)? G - Will we sign Evans back, or will McCray, Patrick, Pankey? Madison? Amichia? Taylor has the left side, who has the right? DL - You've got Clark, Daniels and Wilkerson. Then you've got Looney, Lowry and Adams. ILB - Martinez figures to be on the field most here. Who battles for 1st, 2nd, 3rd down snaps? Does Ryan have the edge in this competition due to inexperience? Will Burks do enough to take 1st/2nd down snaps from Ryan, or will he be a passing situation substitute? Will Jones continue working in this role? EDGE - Matthews and Perry. Both have durability concerns. Who steps in during those scenarios? Does Fackrell decide to give a Fack? Is Biegel ready to turn heads? Odom? Gilbert? Veteran insurance? CB - This position was handed to players in recent years due to default and no better options. Now it seems every role is up for grabs. Who is the odd man out of the starting (or semi-starting) lineup? King, House, Alexander, Jackson and Williams figure to fight for two boundary roles. Which of the losers work best in the nickel? Who makes the roster out of Brown, Goodson, Hawkins, Pipkins, Rollins, Waters? S - Clinton-Dix and Josh Jones. Who takes the backup spots, or does one of the backups perform well enough to start? Evans, Brice, Whitehead. Does one of our corners get looks at safety?
  2. Lost in Space (Netflix Original)

    All episodes released on Netflix today. I'm about 15 minutes in. Production quality is excellent. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5232792/?ref_=nv_sr_1 It only has a 7.2 on IMDB though... I wonder why.
  3. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Infinity Wars

    Agreed on the time travel changes. I'd be extremely upset. I've bought 18 movies now supporting the MCU. If those movies become forfeit, I will be extremely upset with the MCU. I want them to do it with DC, but Marvel is 18 movies in. I'd be fine if they did something that changed some small elements. Quiksilver lives, but Hawkeye dies in that scene instead. Something like that. As long as they keep a reason for me to watch all 18 movies I've purchased, I'll be fine with time travel elements, but they better keep the events largely the same.
  4. Random Game Talk

    I can't believe there's a universe where people defend micro transactions and that I'm in that universe. Micro transactions are not normal, and they are not something that should be defended. They harm the overall quality of games. Instead of focusing on creating the best game possible, developers will start focusing on how to get the most money out of micro transactions. Sports games are a perfect example of this. Why does the NBA game suck? Why does Madden suck? Because they can charge full price each and every year for changing menus, music and a few tiny details and gameplay mechanics, lose some buyers and make that up and more by people paying for MUT cards or haircuts on a damn video game character. The bottom line in any industry or company is money. That's it. If a company can make more money off micro transactions, their biggest focus will be on that. In no world, solar system, galaxy or universe should anybody ever defend micro transactions. A micro transaction is the equivalent to paying 10 dollars to see the latest Marvel movie and then paying an extra dollar to be able to sit for the after credits scene. If you defend micro transactions, you are a sad, strange person.
  5. Wrestlemafia, the sign up and game thread

    What happens when somebody visits a player? Also, does the same alignment typically have two of their players visit the same player, or is it safe to assume that Woz and md4l are not in the same alignment?
  6. What movie are you watching v1

    How is that relaxing? Some of the most intense Netflix of my life was watching that. Planet Earth is real. Some of those animals DIE.
  7. What movie are you watching v1

    Stranger Things if you haven't watched it. Lost in Space if you like network television writing with HBO production quality. Face/Off if you want glorious 90's action. Trailer Park Boys if you want a mindless show to drink while you watch that sometimes has hilarious scenes. Dark if you want a foreign slow burn mind**** time travel story. Inglourious Basterds if you want Tarantino's best movie. Last Shift if you want an underrated indie horror. Thats all I got off the top of my head.
  8. What movie are you watching v1

    If people are really comparing Killmonger to Magneto, they've got some serious problems and... dare I say... racism. Lol.
  9. What movie are you watching v1

    Lol. Some people probably really believe that. Sorry, I just thought the whole movie was really boring. You saw Black Panther for like two scenes. That main warrior lady was obnoxious. They killed the better of the two villains early. Didn't feel anything like a Marvel movie. I like T'Challa, I like his sister, but if this movie wasn't part of the MCU, I probably wouldn't keep it based on its own merit. Just felt super slow, a little boring, and not all that exciting compared to all the other MCU movies. Probably ranks close to the bottom for me.
  10. Saints Watch- Additional First Round Pick

    Lowest TD number for him since 2003.
  11. What movie are you watching v1

    Black Panther better have a hell of a final hour because I'm an hour and 22 minutes in (right when he gets thrown off the waterfall), and it's honestly feeling like a chore to watch it. Not seeing the high praise for it at all.
  12. Packers Off-season Mini-Camp/Training Camp Discussion Thread

    Adams has had two concussions to my knowledge. Both on illegal hits that got the players who hit him suspended. Everybody in the NFL would be concussion prone if they were on the receiving end of those two (illegal) hits.
  13. Jamaal Williams/Aaron Jones

    And I'm free to tell you how obnoxious it is. How has your plan worked so far? Instead of me carrying on a conversation with someone carrying on a conversation about football, we've now had five posts discussing what is being discussed instead of talking about football. I wasn't condescending, I wasn't being rude, I was discussing the merits of calling Montgomery's second year his rookie year. That is football. Your holier than thou sanctimonious complaining about the discussion was literally a complaint about discussing football on a football site. IN MAY. You don't like me. We all get that. I've asked you repeatedly to discuss football with me, put me on your ignore list or leave me alone. You can't quit trying to control what I say and how I say it. It's obnoxious, and I'm sick if it. There was literally nothing malicious or non-football talk and you tried to dictate what I could and could not discuss. You could have tried to get the conversation back to football by offering your own input on Williams/Jones. You could have ignored it and left it alone. You didn't. You complained about a discussion on football. You act like I'm some insufferable ahole, and yet I was talking about football semantics without being remotely disrespectful, rude, condescending or anything unbecoming of a user of this site and you complained about it.
  14. Jamaal Williams/Aaron Jones

    I forgot people can't discuss the semantics behind what is and isn't a rookie season in the NFL. Leader, please forgive me. Could you please provide that list of accepted topics I can and cannot discuss again? I'd like to bookmark it for future reference.
  15. Jamaal Williams/Aaron Jones

    "Up the middle", "left end" against the Niners. "Left tackle," against the Chargers. All of that is moot considering he had a full training camp, and then a second full training camp and two preseasons of NFL experience. He wasn't a rookie. By your logic, Ryan Grant had 956 yards, 5.1 yards per carry and 8 touchdowns in his rookie year because he didn't get a single snap in his real rookie year.
  16. Mike Pettine Defense

    I'll use this third time quoting you to bring up Cyrus Jones, Jordan Richards, Geneo Grissom, Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce, Ras-I-Dowling, Ryan Mallet, Taylor Price, Ron Brace, Terrance Wheatley, Shawn Crable, Kevin O'Connell, Jonathan Wilhite, Kareem Brown and Chad Jackson. Who are those people? All mediocre to really, really, really, REALLY bad draft picks by the man you love so much... Bill Belichick. All 2nd-4th round picks. Keep calling Thompson out and I'll keep calling you out. Name one single GM you think was better than him and I will show you more busts from that GM.
  17. Mike Pettine Defense

    Gonna quote this three times and challenge you three times until you finally for once take me up on the offer instead of insufferably suggest Thompson was awful in spite of not being able to go out on a limb and name one GM you think was better than him at drafting.
  18. Mike Pettine Defense

    Name any GM that was a GM for five years in the history of the NFL and I will show you worse busts than Randall, Rollins and Fackrell.
  19. Jamaal Williams/Aaron Jones

    Because that was Woodson's first full year at safety. It is the same. Montgomery was a rookie who took snaps at RB in his rookie year. A rookie is a rookie. Aaron Rodgers wasn't a rookie the first year he started. Ty Montgomery wasn't a rookie the first year he started at RB.
  20. What movie are you watching v1

    Caught up on some horror movies I've been meaning to watch for a long time. The Tall Man - My absolute biggest pet peeve is when a movie promises something and didn't deliver. I still have not re-watched The Village for this very reason and I am still very angry and very sensitive about it. The Tall Man did the same thing to me, although my expectations weren't high and I went in suspecting this could happen. Still mad though. 5/10. Digging up the Marrow - Suffered from a budget of like 2 dollars and 27 cents, but it had a great premise and a couple really cool scenes that would have made it a really enjoyable movie if it had a budget worth its idea. 6/10. Wishmaster - Really, really, really cheesy and really, really, really dated, but I liked how it had a bunch of horror icons in it, it had some great practical effects, and it wasn't a complete waste of time. 6/10. Wishmaster 2 - Just didn't feel like looking for anything else, so I doubled down. The second one was really bad with only one cool practical effect.
  21. Jamaal Williams/Aaron Jones

    He had one rookie year. Otherwise, Charles Woodson was a rookie in his first year back in Oakland. A rookie is a rookie. I get what you're saying, but it doesn't work like that.
  22. Jamaal Williams/Aaron Jones

    Ty Montgomery did not average 5.9 yards per carry in his rookie year.
  23. Mike Pettine Defense

    Trade a seventh round pick for Von Miller obviously. Just gotta go in and set Von Miller's strength to a 2 first, then just switch it back once the trade is complete. Do not question his Franchise Mode.
  24. Wrestlemafia, the sign up and game thread

    Again, sorry for not being terribly active, this is all new to me. Mafia has gotten pretty complicated since I've been away and I was never good at reading players to begin with. Based on the inactives being replaced, it looks like KSJ, James McMurray, md4l and MookieMonster are the least active (other than me). How do they normally play? Are they normally quiet? Also, it seems like LTBF and FJ are quiet with each other and I think that's still something that needs to be explained. Those are my thoughts at this point.
