  1. Wishing him all the best. One of our O-linemen, David Quessenberry, went through treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma over the past few years and finally got back on to the field last year - here's hoping Hal can recover quickly as well.
  2. Houston S Hal diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma

    When I say "it's the same thing as Eric Berry had", it appears to be the same type of lymphoma. According to wiki, it's an 86% 5-year survival rate that goes higher the younger you are when you get it.
  3. Houston S Hal diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma

    It's the same thing Eric Berry had - it's pretty good if you catch it early. That said, cancer is always a tough bout, regardless of the circumstances.

    Wish him all the best.
  5. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    Last one of the round is Peter Kalambayi, a second Stanford guy, this time at LB
  6. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    Alright, here's the first of two in the next four Jordan Thomas, another TE
  7. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    At long freaking last.
  8. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    Honestly, not screwing up the 3rd round would be an improvement on Smith, who could hit the 1st rounders... but that was about it.
  9. NCAA Tournament South Region Discussion

    My bracket is in shambles, and I don't even care. Well done, Retrievers. Well done. Yeah, if anyone was gonna go down, it was gonna be Kentucky - Davidson looked hot. But hey, they call it March Madness for a reason.
  10. NCAA Tournament South Region Discussion

    Twenty points. They didn't just win, they took them to the wood shed.
  11. NCAA Tournament South Region Discussion

    I mean, it's one thing to lose... but the no. 1 overall seed didn't even put up a fight. Again a 16-seed.
  12. Texans sign S Tyrann Mathieu

    It's 1 yr., 7 mil. I'll update the opening.

  14. Eagles vs Patriots SBLII GDT

    Thank you New England for screwing this up
  15. Eagles vs Patriots SBLII GDT

    What's the modern record for failed PATs in a game? We gotta be getting close at this point...
  16. 2018 Playoff Thread - No Dog In The Hunt Edition

    After watching portions of that game, the Jags played the Patriots far closer than we have at any time during the playoffs. We're gonna have to deal with the fact that they're the team to beat in this division now. Especially if they can improve their QB position, like we've been trying to do the past few years
  17. Titans Hire Mike Vrabel as Head Coach

    It's interesting. Before last year he was pretty good, enough for us to promote him to DC to make sure he didn't get that position elsewhere. But last year the defense was pretty awful. Was Vrabel in over his head? Or was it just we got absolutely flattened by injuries? I dunno. I hope for the former, mostly because they're a divisional opponent.
  18. Coaching staff vacancies

    Vrabel is now in Tennessee, opening up the defensive coordinator position.
  19. Broadcaster Keith Jackson Died

    "Fourth and five... national championship on the line." Rest in peace, Mr. Jackson.
  20. From a real life standpoint, I wish him and his wife all the best, and a quick and speedy recovery. From a pure football standpoint, I am glad he's gone. While he's definitely gotten some stars, he is absolutely terrible at getting any depth whatsoever, and on the off chance he does find something good, he seems loath to actually pay them, leaving us back to square one once they start producing. His free agent signings have been pretty god awful. If you need to hit on a 1st round pick, he seems competent enough at that - but at anything else his job entails, he's truly terrible. We needed to replace him.
  21. 2018 NFL Coaching Carousel Thread

    If I have to pick a side, I'd rather keep O'Brien. Smith's incompetence is far more egregious. That said, I can't say I'm overly attached to either.
  22. Who do you want next at HC and GM?

    Bill Barnwell, at the least, seems to think that if it opens up, it's the most attractive spot in the league: http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21759278/ranking-best-nfl-potential-head-coach-openings-2018 That said, I don't know how working with Rick Smith could possibly be attractive at this point...
  23. Rick Smith Hot Seat Thread

    Russell Wilson had half a billion yards against us, but Jacksonville's mostly held him down. AJ Bouye even has an interception. Man, it'd be really stupid to let someone like that go and have nothing to show for it despite a ton of cap room. Reaaaalllly stupid. (this is nothing new, but watching the highlights infuriates me nonetheless)
  24. Week 14 GDT: San Francisco Niners vs Houston Texans

    I think Indy's still winnable, but Jacksonville and Pittsburgh are gonna murder us. If, y'know, anybody's left standing to play the next couple games...
