  1. Nintendo Switch Thread

    Got Luigi's Mansion 3 for Christmas. It's really fun. It somehow manages to feel both slow and relaxing and very interesting at the same time. It's hard to put it down.
  2. FF Elite Fantasy Baseball League - Season 2

    Last call - anyone want to make an offer on any of these guys? It's to the point where I'm going to have to cut someone, so you might be able to get a good deal. I would rather get something than just cut them loose, so I'd be looking for 2020 or even 2021 picks. C Sean Murphy UT Nick Solak SP Sean Manaea
  3. The Quinn Drafts - 2016-2018

    Quinn has done ok. My problem is that he always just seems to do alright - none of these guys are really superstars. He tends to play it really safe and get guys who end up being decent starters or backups or good special teamers but not any studs. He has been good at avoiding complete busts (except for Tabor) but hasn't really found a killer draft yet.
  4. Not a terrible move, probably not a great one. I wasn't excited for Bevell and he has worked out great. They probably had a difficult time attracting big names for the job - everyone knows that Patricia and Quinn are gone (almost certainly with the coordinators) if they fail next year.
  5. 2020 Free Agency

    Which former Patriots have they signed that actually turned into good players for us? Flowers was solid, but anyone else? Amendola?
  6. FF Elite Fantasy Baseball League (Season 1)

    Still looking to trade some roster bubble guys, such as... 2B Kolten Wong C Sean Murphy OF Jesse Winker/Brandon Nimmo UT Nick Solak SP Sean Manaea, Mike Minor, Luke Weaver
  7. 2020 Free Agency

    The Lions are around 20th in cap space. Based on how Quinn has done in free agency so far, I expect the team to mostly go after depth signings, but you never know. Flowers was a huge surprise last year and Quinn has to know that his job is on the line. Wouldn't surprise me to see a OL shakeup. Wagner is overpaid and I could see Quinn following the "Patriot Way" and letting Glasgow walk if he wants too much money.
  8. Picking #3

    The offense wasn't a problem this year. You can't control the clock with a **** defense.
  9. ***Spoilers*** Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Saw it last night. It was...ok? I absolutely hate how "extreme" Star Wars fandom seems to be. You can't just think that a movie was OK or decent or pretty good. Everything has to be either amazing or the worst thing ever that destroyed your childhood or something ridiculous. Can a movie just be...ok? I mean, I wouldn't put it in my Top 3 Star Wars movies, but it wouldn't go in my Bottom 3 either.
  10. LIONS BRINGING PATRICIA AND QUINN BACK FOR 2020

    I have no confidence in them turning it around next year. Patricia seems lost, the team has gotten worse, and Quinn hasn't accomplished any of his goals. Most likely scenario seems to be Patricia and Quinn getting canned next year, which then starts a total rebuild and might even result in the team trading Stafford. We would have a new GM, new coach, new schemes, and probably a new QB. Ugh.
  11. Lions v Bucs

    That's what scares me. The team isn't getting better. It feels like the players are not buying into whatever Patricia is selling. The injuries haven't helped, but I think that Patricia and Quinn need to go. The list of coaches that have failed miserably for two years and then miraculously turned things around in year three is actually quite small.
  12. Lions v Bucs

    That was kind of clickbait. All that he really said was that he was focusing on the college playoff games right now.
  13. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    Oof, what a way to lose. Had Penny not gone down I feel like I should've won that matchup. Oh well... Congrats on the win!
  14. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    Yeah...that's a tough draw for me with all of the injuries. I've had a lot of players either hurt this year or with their QB hurt. Maybe I'll get lucky and someone like Mike Williams will have some positive regression and actually catch a couple of touchdowns or something.
  15. Chicago Cubs Thread - Kimbrel incoming

    Russell is gone. Good. We needed him in 2016, but there's no reason to keep him around anymore. Way too much baggage, not enough production. We can probably find a glove-first backup SS for half of the cost - Jose Iglesias got $2.5M last year, for example.
