  1. Jaguars at Patriots post game discussion

    I really don't want to read much into this, but I kind of got a vibe that Jalen Ramsey was not very happy with the zone defense calls in the second half (4th quarter) of that game. Many people posting during the game were suggesting that the Jags return to aggressive man defense, but they continued to run zone defense and Brady + those receivers picked it apart. Overall, I thought Ramsey was level headed in the interview right after a loss (from the part I saw) and I don't blame him if he was frustrated at their defensive play calling one bit.
  2. Hearthstone

    Congrats to tom60229 on winning the Hearthstone World Championship! He and Fr0zen played a terrific final series that went down to the last game. Well played and great year!
  3. I think @jrry32 says that QB's don't typically hit their prime until around 28 or so years of age. Nick Foles is currently 29. Just saying. =)
  4. Jaguars at Patriots post game discussion

    You make valid points, but the Seahawks still had a 10 point lead and Brady made some awesome throws - some in very tight windows. In addition, you have to remember that this season they have been without their best and most dependable wide receiver in Julian Edelman and they lost one of the greatest weapons in the league in Gronkowski who did not play at all in the second half. One of their key defensive players and leaders Dont'a Hightower got injured earlier in the season and won't be able to play until next season. As a Seahawks fan, I could make excuses for the year they lost the Super Bowl and plenty of other times, but it doesn't matter. The one team that never makes excuses is the Patriots. They play through injury and key losses all the time and still are incredibly consistent and continue to win.
  5. Madden 18

    I was just about to type this. I saw the GOAT Edition and was about to buy it, then I read some people on a different website and a ton of people are saying that Madden 18 is going to be 'free' on EA Access at the start of February so I decided not to buy it. EDIT: Just noticed you said PS+. EA Access is not on Playstation, I don't believe.
  6. OPM Seahawks Off-Season (1.6 / First Draft COMPLETE)

    The problem with that is, if the team is trying to contend next season (and I don't see why they wouldn't) then trading Earl Thomas for a 2nd round pick is really bad. He's still one of the best safeties in football. I'd rather keep him.
  7. Jaguars at Patriots post game discussion

    As for the Jaguars, they're a really young team. I thought Bortles played very well towards the end of this year, so that's something to look forward to. Hopefully they'll be back, but they're in a very young and competitive division so it's not going to be easy. To go from 3-13 last year to the AFC Championship game coming down to the wire is unbelievable. Their front office has been simply outstanding when it comes to the draft and free agency, they kind of remind me of the Seahawks years ago before they eventually won a Super Bowl.
  8. Jaguars at Patriots post game discussion

    He should be good to go (hopefully) in the two weeks leading up to the game.
  9. Jaguars at Patriots post game discussion

    Tom Brady and the Pats did something very similar to the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl a few years ago. That Seahawks defense was outstanding and the Pats were down by double digits in the 4th quarter (10 points, I believe). Brady had a fantastic 4th quarter after being just 'meh' earlier in the game. The Pats really stepped up as a team and got the job done that day. Kind of a similar thing today against another great defensive unit. You just have to tip your hat to the Patriots. There's no a team in this league that plays better situational football than the Patriots. Their players almost always seem to be in the right spot, make the correct decisions and make huge plays when they need it the most.
  10. Jaguars at Patriots post game discussion

    Honestly, I don't understand how someone could watch this game and complain about refs. Did the refs miss some calls? Absolutely. Was this game decided by poor referees? No. The Pats got it done in the 4th quarter. Tom Brady played great and his receivers made several really touch catches. The Patriots defense in the 4th quarter turned it up. Their defensive backs preformed great in the 4th quarter and the front seven were able to generate pressure on Bortles. EDIT: btw, I'm still not over the shock of Phillip Dorsett making that really tough catch to help spark the Pats come back. Haha.
  11. Ben has been got damn great for the Steelers. Highly doubt much of anything changes with Brees as QB.
  12. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    As far as Luck being the best QB in the AFC South, I think Watson will have something to say about that. Watson hasn't done it long enough, so if you want to say Luck is the best then I have no issue. The problem is, the rest of that team isn't very good. If everyone in the AFC South stays healthy, the Colts are probably the 3rd best team at best.
  13. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    I need time to think about this one. Great season for the Jags.
  14. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    Unfreaking real.
  15. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    I'm not saying it'll happen, but at least they'll have a chance. BTW, get that ketchup ready just incase
  16. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    Jags still have 3 time outs. If their defense can get a 3 and out here, they have another shot.
  17. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    "The Jags played to lose"... what?
  18. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

  19. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    That sucks, Fournette beat his man.
  20. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    Blake Bortles can do this.
  21. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    Tom Brady did something very similar in the Super Bowl a few years ago vs the Seattle Seahawks and that great defensive unit. He didn't play well all game and then in the fourth quarter with a double digit deficit, he turns the switch. The guy is just the best ever. Also, kudos to his receivers who are making the tough catches they weren't making earlier in the game.
  22. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    I don't think time matters here. You have to score a TD when you can because there's no guarantee you even get in against this great defense.
  23. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

  24. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    Oh no. Sucks so much to see Jack hurt like this. Oh man, huge loss if he can't come back.
  25. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    He caught that football, IMO.
