574 Pro Bowl
  1. Bucs cut DT Gerald McCoy

    With Rankins coming off injury, this could be pretty significant for the Saints. He may not be the phenom he once was, but he’d be a significant contributor.
  2. Pick one; Julio Jones or Calvin Johnson

    By double digit TDs you mean 10 TDs. Why not just say 10 TDs instead of keeping it ambiguous for readers in hopes of helping your argument. And even though 10 TDs is pretty darn modest for an elite NFL receiver, you treat the other 7 years like the outliner. Oh, he has so many other targets taking away targets from poor Julio who is quadrupled every play. Get real. Every good WR in the league draw just as much attention as Julio. That’s no excuse. There are elite WRs who simply aren’t great in the red zone. That’s ok. Julio is still one of the best WRs in the NFL. But this is a comparison between two great WRs, and in my opinion, TDs matter.
  3. Rosen vs Murray

    I thought that Rosen was very overrated as a prospect for a number of reasons, but thought that outside of height Murray was a good prospect. I’m going with Murray (though both could bust).
  4. Tight End Statistical Projections

    I think you may be right. It’s a little difficult to follow
  5. Tight End Statistical Projections

    I love analytics. I do professional research on the topic. I think that you need to do a better job of validating your tool. Sure...you put a bunch of numbers together, but do your predications have any correlation at all with outcomes? To my blind eye...I’m skeptical. You need to educate yourself on statistics and do a multi variant analysis to improve and validate your tool. But I really do appreciate your effort and you’re on the right track.
  6. Dynasty and Keepers Offseason Talk

    My league declares keepers one week before the draft. The price of keeping the player is the round the player was drafted the prior year. I like this setting because it adds more strategy than just keeping your highest ranked players. We keep for players total, but one has to be a rookie the prior season. I also only allow a player to be kept by their owner three consecutive seasons. We set limitations on keepers to add to the strategy and to allow there to be a little more turnover of roster so things don’t get stale. We’ve had to set a number of other rules along the way, such as the inability to trade a player on your roster after the season once they’ve been kept three seasons (everyone felt that would keep the top teams on top and would defeat the purpose of year limits). We’ve also had to put rules in place for keeping players who were undrafted the prior year (we pay the last round pick). And the cost of keeping more than one player from the same round (we pay that round and the prior round). Keeping two players selected in the first round would cost your first three rounds. There is no RIGHT way to do it and much depends on your leagues goals. If you essentially want a rookie draft, you have to set significantly more keepers with much longer time limits (or no time limits).
  7. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Light of the Seven is one of the best composed pieces I’ve ever heard. And it’s fit with the show was superb. I could argue that was one of the great scenes in TV history.
  8. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Your one of those people who think that everyone thinks the same way you do because you saw it liked on Facebook. You’re being dramatic and making arguments that are nonsense. I haven’t loved the season but it appears that there is a ton of hate momentum and that’s creating an overwhelming about of bias.
  9. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    The reason is simple: bias. Misery likes company.
  10. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Everywhere else? Get out of here. Is “everywhere else” the whiny little pansies on reddit?
  11. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    This entire season has been about Dany losing control, losing everyone she loves, and lastly, on the verge of losing her dream/main motivator since season one. Forget the madness...she has very logical reasons for doing what she did. She did what she had to do to win and have a chance to keep the throne. Have people not been paying attention? Or we’re they just too occupied with complaining?
  12. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    She had friends and people who believed in her claim. She also had a sense of manifest destiny. She goes to Westeros, loses all of her friends, is hated in spite of her dragons saving them, is plotted against by her allies, and loses her claim to the throne by a guy who she thought loved her. If she allows Cersei to surrender, she’s screwed. Is that not the entire point of the show, “In the game of thrones, you win or you die.” Her Life is considerably different than it was in Mereen.
  13. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    I’m not convinced that Dany is “‘mad”. Genocide was the correct move for her to assume power. Jon is a huge threat...to the extent that people are trying to kill her so that he can assume power. Certainly, it was an emotional move, but it was the only move that would help her achieve her goal.
  14. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Ramin Djawadi is the best current composer in the world. I learned piano after hearing Light of the Seven.
  15. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    I honestly think that the big moments for the most part have been well done. The Red Wedding and Jon Snows death we’re done BETTER in the show. Cersei blowing up the sept...absolutely brilliant...arguably the best piece in the entire shows history...without book help. Jon’s identity reveal, though rushed a bit, was also very well done...without the books help. I believe that outside of a few omissions, this weeks show was very good. Those who hate it are just over the show at this point. The White Walker episode was the one where they really missed the boat. They missed a bunch of opportunities there. That is literally the only significant tarnish on this shows legacy for me so far. EDIT: I’ve probably watched Hardhome more than any other episode. Not in the book. D&D will be criticized but they have done some things very well, even without the books, especially considering their constraints.
