  1. Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Kansas City Chiefs GDT

    Interesting to me that the Chiefs offense is looking spectacular despite low expectations, with the defense under-performing (based on stats, but I haven't watched much of them to know whether that's an accurate representation). The Steelers are basically doing the opposite. Defense for the Steelers is looking better than expected and the offense isn't performing to the level that you would expect going into the season.
  2. Rick & Morty

    I've also heard that you can pretty much just mix McDonald's BBQ sauce with their Sweet and Sour sauce.
  3. Adrian Peterson traded to ARZ

    Seems like it could be a good fit. I haven't watched much to know whether he has anything left, but it makes more sense than the Saints to me.
  4. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    Worth noting if you haven't heard this about Parks and Rec, but the first season is not all that good (not terrible, just not good). Stick with it through season 2.
  5. Steeler Pick'Em -Week 5 & Results are up

    I saw the mistake, but went for a guess for this week anyways.
  6. The Good Place (NBC)

    Maybe Bortles is a pre-death torture for Jags fans for living in Florida.
  7. The Good Place (NBC)

    Jason's obsession with Blake Bortles is hilarious too. So much ripping on Florida in general. Florida might get it worse than Frozen Yogurt or clam chowder even.
  8. Week #5 Gameday Thread Steelers vs. Jaguars

    Agreed. It typically means the coverage is good enough that the QB doesn't see a window to throw in.
  9. Week #5 Gameday Thread Steelers vs. Jaguars

    I think people over-reacted to Haden's stat sheet the first week (or two?) and haven't come around. He is playing well and allows a guy like Hilton to settle into a role that is much better suited for him. Haden isn't making splash plays (outside of the sack), but I like what I've seen.
  10. Who's the strongest power RB of all time?

    Since the rest of your post is just rambling on about more hearsay, I will just address the bolded. Just because Brown wasn't caught from behind at that time (not entirely convinced that was true anyways, but that's another issue) doesn't mean that he ran a 4.3 40. Yes, there were fast athletes at the time, but they were fewer, so running a mid 4.4 to low 4.5 would likely be enough to pull away from the rest of the guys on the field. Your only proof of your claim is that you heard from other people that Brown ran a 4.3 and you trust that, but people also claim that Bo ran as fast as a 4.12 (not even close to true I'm sure). You go on to talk about Rice and that there were rumors that he ran 4.6 or so (actually the claim is usually 4.71, also Bill Walsh claims Rice ran a 4.59 and Brandt did not claim 4.3 from what I'm seeing, but a 4.55), but you don't trust that. Basically, don't believe everything you hear. People can claim any time they like to fit their narrative, but 4.3 times are elite speedsters (likely could have been track stars) and are not nearly as common as people seem to think.
  11. Who's the strongest power RB of all time?

    I have no idea where you're getting that Jim Brown would be running a 4.3 40 yard dash. I can't find any mention of a 40 time for him aside from a 4.5s time that someone claimed they heard. Jim Brown was not known for his elite speed, but more-so his power. I could see Bo Jackson or Gale Sayers (although he claims he would have run around a 4.7, that seems low) being around a 4.3. There are a lot of myths out there about 40 yard dash times, you can't believe them all.
  12. The Good Place (NBC)

    This is a better show than I expected. I just binge watched most of the show, with only last week's show remaining. It will definitely be on my watch list.
  13. What was it like watching mid-late 2000's Peyton Manning?

    I always like to explain it as he was playing chess while everyone else was playing checkers. He was essentially an on the field coach. He wasn't necessarily the most physically gifted (not to take away from his physical abilities), but he may have been the smartest QB.
  14. Doing local performers only really limits the choices available and excludes a lot of people from ever getting to lead the performance in the half time show. If the SB was played in all team locations (and occasionally an outside the NFL location) I would say definitely try to keep it as local as possible, but you just can't keep that up with over half of the SBs in 3 locations. Additionally, as far as I have heard, Bob Dylan just cannot perform anymore. He would definitely not hold many people's attention.
