  1. Gambling could renew push for 18-game season

    You arent adding any revenue. Each.team currently plays 20 games in 21 weeks with every game on tv. Under his proposal that would drop to 19 games in 21 weeks. Hence it would be a revenue loss. Hes taking a week from the preseason and adding it to the regular season in time, but subtracting one game. In other words its bad.
  2. 1984 49ers vs 1985 Bears

    I counted, there are 8 SuperBowls prior to 99 that were within a score. 8 of 34. Since 99 there has been 12 games within a score. 12 of 19. Thats why i used 99, bc its the clear delineation point where the game went from an expected blowout to an actual competitive game. As for the score issue, i forgot about the 55-10 and i could have swore i heard something about the Seahawks possibly getting the record from the Bears i the superbowl a couple years ago, but idk. Maybe it was total points allowed in the postseason.
  3. Reuben Foster charged with felony domestic violence

    Fret, as a prosecutor im sure you have a different viewpoint and yes, you must believe these women as much as you would any other victim, until you are presented evidence to the contrary. That said the idea that mens lives are being ruined bc of nothing more than a baseless claim, presented without evidence, and in no way investigated, is inarguably immoral.
  4. Reuben Foster charged with felony domestic violence

    Noy saying that is not true, although shame is as much a contributing factor, what im saying is listen and believe as a premise is inherrently immoral and implies that women are somehow virtuous and morally superior creatures. We have a justice system based on the presumption of innocence for a reason.
  5. Reuben Foster charged with felony domestic violence

    Why? Not to diminish from real victims, but history is full of women who have used deceit and manipulation to hurt others. We even havea saying, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." Women are people, same as any other. They will go to extraordinary means to hurt someone who they feel has wronged them, just as often as men do.
  6. 1984 49ers vs 1985 Bears

    Its all true, go back and look at the SuperBowl scores before 99. Save for few exceptions they were blowouts. The 1985 Bears have the distinction of being the largest blow out in the history of a game full of blowouts. Im not sure what you meant by saying anything i said was wrong.
  7. 1984 49ers vs 1985 Bears

    Sigh...obviously comparing teams across eras is difficult bc of the technology advances, so when we discussing such things we have to immediately throw that out. TO THIS DAY the 85 Bears are the gold standard of defense. Why? Besides going 15-1 and all the regular season records they set. They then pitched 2 playoff shutouts before putting the worst beatdown in the history of the SuperBowl on the Patriots. Keep in mind that the Superbowl was never remotely close to a competitive game until the Rams beat the Titans in 1999. The SuperBowl had always been lopsided but un 1985 it was the most tilted the game has ever been. Again a record that still stands today. That is why the 85 Bears have largely been cannonized they way they have.
  8. Jared Goff vs Jimmy Garappolo

    You do know that no rookie not named Dan Marino has thrown more TDs right? Yeah, id suggest you stop just looking at stats and understand context.
  9. Jared Goff vs Jimmy Garappolo

    Umm Manning threw 26 TDs as a rookie. Yeah he also threw 28 Ints, but he was very far from terrible. At the time everyone talked about how impressive of a rookie year it was.
  10. 1984 49ers vs 1985 Bears

    Considering that the 85 Bears has long been considered the greatest team of all time, and that started BEFORE 1987 im going to say they are going to say the 85 Bears.
  11. Mayfield vs Darnold vs Rosen vs Jackson

    Ride or die with Josh Allen. I also keep getting these Rodgers vibes from Rosen.
  12. Lions Patricia Indicted for Sexual Assault in '96

    The indictment is not that impressive. There is an old saying with lawyers that an ape could get an indictment. The only thing the grand jury hears is the prosecution's case, and the standard is probable cause. Meaning the prosecutor just has to show that their is a 50% probability or better that something may have happened. In this instance that very well could have been just the alleged victims statement to the police. Thats a long way from beyond a reasonable doubt. The indictment means absolutely nothing as far as how strong or weak the prosecutions case was. Also keep in mind 22 years ago we were telling college kids that regrettable drunk sex was rape.
  13. Lions Patricia Indicted for Sexual Assault in '96

    One of the many lawyers on the site would probably be able to answer about the labor laws, but i would say there probably isnt anything on the books bc it goes against common sense. As far as whether the nfl knew, or it was disclosed, more than likely both the nfl knew through their background check, and Patricia was never required to disclose it bc he wasnt convicted. An indictment is only an accusation its not a conviction. The case was dismissed. Due process was met and the evidence was found wanting. Mostly this is a nothing burger, but when the league os trying to look progressive, its bad optics.
  14. 4 Years of Ryan Pace: Roster Overhaul

    Looking at metrics for a 3-4 DE and judging their play from that is a horrible way to scout. His job is not going to lead to individual stats. Richard Seymour, Justin Smith, and JJ Watt are the only real exceptions to that ive seen in my lifetime. Those guys were each thought to possibly be the best players in the entire league at one time.
