  1. NBA 2K19

    The anniversary edition of the game comes out on September 7th. The standard edition of the game comes out on September 11th. Are you guys getting this? If so, what edition of the game are you going to get? What game modes, improvements, etc are you looking forward to?
  2. NBA 2K19

    I watched a guy play with HoF Defensive Stopper at SG and he was locking his man up. Got to the point to where the guy he was guarding couldn't even bring the ball up the court anymore. On the flip side, pure locks can't play offense worth a damn, so it's almost like you would have defensive stopper too. He's not going to be able to handle the ball at all, shoot or even pass. Speaking of handling the ball, almost everyone gets ripped. Haven't seen a pure playmaking PG with 99 ball handling yet, but that might be the only person who isn't a victim of steal spam.
  3. Why would you rest someone who is slotted as day-to-day for four weeks? I understand him not playing Thursday night even if he can play, just as a precaution, but their next game is ten days later. That's plenty of time for a day-to-day diagnosis.
  4. Steelers listening to offers for RB Le' Veon Bell

    You have my attention.
  5. Tearing It Down to Rebuild

    I'm creating this topic for discussion. It's not an overreaction to the first two weeks of the season. I read an article from the Seattle Times where it stated in there that a few GM's believe that Russell Wilson could fetch three first round picks. Here's an article that says Wilson and Seahawks future uncertain: https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/seahawks/report-russell-wilson-could-get-potentially-three-first-round-picks-in-a-trade/ Then there's the Earl Thomas situation where the Seahawks were offered a 2nd rounder, but refused. The team has elite players (Thomas, Wilson and Wagner) and there is a ton of young talent around them. The team looks mediocre, so what do you guys think about going into a full rebuild? I know most of you were on board with trading Thomas in the off-season, but how would you feel about Wilson and Wagner being gone. Wilson is going to be due for a new contract and will probably want something similar to what Aaron Rodgers just signed for. Is it worth it to invest that much into a QB when the team probably will not make the postseason?
  6. We all knew this was going to happen. Thomas stated months ago that he would not play another down of football without a new deal. I know several of you wanted Thomas to be traded before the draft, but obviously that did not happen. I have always been on the side of the fence that wants Thomas to be re-signed. The interesting this is, how long does Thomas hold out? Most guys talk a tough game, but they eventually start to play as the fines ramp up and they are not collecting checks. Thomas has openly stated he is willing to sit out the entire season. * Do you guys think the Seahawks and Thomas come to a long term deal? If so, what are you predicting the numbers be? * Do you guys think the Seahawks trade Thomas? If so, what teams do you think would have serious interest and what could some potential compensation be? * If the Seahawks and Thomas are not able to come to a contract agreement, how long do you envision Thomas sitting out? How many games (if any) do you predict he will miss? Or do you think he's ready to go and play week 1 of the regular season? @animaltested @ditchdigger @SoS @Tatupu_64 @NFL_Announcer @Ryan_W @One Punch Man @Zman724 @RandomCampBody @imani
  7. 2nd Best Cornerback in the League?

    I'm not the biggest Xavier Rhodes guy. I would take Ramsey, Heyward, Trufant and Peterson over him without a doubt.

    What's wrong with Bell's work ethic? Bell is an elite player.
  9. 2018 NBA Random Offseason Discussion

    On another note...
  10. 2018 NBA Random Offseason Discussion

    I love Kawhi Leonard's personality. He's probably 'normal' off the court, but when he's in front of cameras and media he seems nervous.
  11. SNF: Pats vs. Lions

    Would the Patriots be a team that is interested in Earl Thomas?
  12. Week 4: Chucky v. Bakermania

    If the kicking wasn't all-time bad and Baker Mayfield was starting (like he should have been) the Browns would be 3-0 right now. Nonetheless, awesome start to the season. I don't think the Raiders are as bad as their record indicates, but this is a game the Browns should win. The defense is so fun to watch. Initially, I thought it was a mistake to take Denzel Ward over Minkah Fitzpatrick, but both guys look pretty good so far.
  13. Dorsey a genius????

    Speaking of which, what happened to @ditchdigger ? He told us he was a Seahawks fan and posted during the off-season then just disappeared.
  14. I'm a big fan of the Bears front seven, but like I said, they've played two of the worst offenses in the league. The Cardinals literally scored 6 points the first two games of the season combined. SIX POINTS COMBINED. They more than double their season total vs the Bears. The offense is that horrendous. Seattle's offense is garbage as well, it just so happens that yesterday they ran into an even worse offense in the Dallas Cowboys. Seriously, that's not impressive at all. They were supposed to do very well vs both those teams.
  15. The Apple Thread 

    When I mentioned hardware, I'm not just talking about the processor. I'm talking about the actual phone itself. Screen, RAM, internal storage, external storage, headphone jack, fast charging, etc. Maybe hardware wasn't the right word.
  16. Discussion for #1? They played two teams with really bad offenses who have losing records (Seattle and Arizona) and the one team that actually has a talented offense (Packers) the unit disappeared in the 2nd half of the game and got dominated. They gave up a extremely easy massive play to give the Packers the lead in that game. The defense put up absolutely zero resistance against Rodgers and those WRs with the game on the line.
  17. Here we go, boys. The must win game. It's only week 3, but we have to have this one. If the Seahawks don't stack the box against the Cowboys, I would be very surprised. I think the Seahawks defense lines up very well vs the Cowboys as long as they are able to keep Zeke in check, which is going to be really difficult. Offensively, Russell Wilson needs to play much better. We need to see the Seahawks call some quick passes and Wilson needs to stop holding on to the ball for so long. The Cowboys defense has looked impressive the first two weeks of the season, so the offense needs to really step it up. Would also like to see more carries from the backs in the running game.
  18. SNF: Pats vs. Lions

    Teams always focus on Gronk. No team defends him with just one guy all game ever. The dude is always in bracket coverages, double teams, coverage rolled his way, etc.
  19. Teams that are overhyped/underhyped

    Vikings are disqualified from everything after getting smacked by the Bills today.
  20. SNF: Pats vs. Lions

    Why did Gronk only get 5 targets? Seems like he should get the ball thrown to him more than that.
  21. What do you guys think of Lincoln Riley? He's the best offensive mind in college football and he is a genius with QB's and playing to their strengths. Baker Mayfield was great under Riley and currently Kyler Murray is a top 5 Heisman candidate. Riley is a really young guy who is in his mid 30's, but he might be worth looking at if the Cowboys might replace their head coach.
  22. 2018-2019 Heisman Watch Thread

    Trent Dilfer said that Tua was the high school prospect he had ever seen and it's not close. Dilfer also said that he is a "Generational Talent" and he's the best prospect of all 32 NFL starters (I guess if you look at all 32 NFL starters when they were coming out as a prospect).
  23. The Apple Thread 

    The hardware isn't fine. The Samsung Note 9 blows this new iPhone out of the water by a long shot. Who cares about longer life span outside of people who want to keep a phone for like 4 years... like you. Most people don't do that. Your entire post is about phones lasting for a long time, something that isn't even relevant for someone who is buying a phone like the iPhone XS Max.
  24. Earl Thomas Situation (holding out)

    https://sports.yahoo.com/heres-trade-market-earl-thomas-looks-like-4-teams-213354430.html “I need to make sure my body is 100 and I’m invested in myself. If they was invested in me, I’d be out there practicing, but if I feel like anything – I don’t give a damn if it’s small, I got a headache – I’m not practicing.” The four teams the article list are: Raiders, Falcons, Chiefs and Cowboys.
  25. Week 3 Gameday Thread

    Good thing the Cowboys couldn't complete the trade for Earl Thomas. Maybe they use that pick to draft a QB.
