  1. Wk 11 GDT - Remember....

    You did say this season hasn't been fun to watch. We're 9-1.
  2. The Other Games Thread Week #11

    Why do people always look to point the finger at someone else saying they made the mistake when it's SO clearly obvious who made the real mistake in a given situation? It's incredible. I get Browns fans being irrational, that's what we do as sports fans. But anyone else not blaming Garrett here is an absolute moron.
  3. Wk 11 GDT - Remember....

    Agreed. We're going to find out a lot about this squad in the next few weeks. While yesterday's win wasn't pretty, that's a huge win on the road, in tough conditions, with an offense struggling to move the ball. The offense needs to find it's identity, and it needs to do so rather quickly or we're going to waste a historically good defense. Brady was visibly pissed off after the game, and rightfully so. He had zero time to throw, a blocking dummy is better than Newhouse, WR's dropping balls and running wrong routes, etc. Getting Wynn back will be HUGE. I'm not sure there's going to be a bigger addition to any team in the league at this point in the season. My gut tells me things will start to click once he sures up that side of the line. I thought Harry looked good in his debut. Bailey is a monster. That punt team with Bailey, Slater, and Bethel is just unfair. Only BB would cut a great punter, and replace him with an elite one. Is it just me or has James White's usage been way lower than usual this season?

    I have no dog in this fight. I was simply pointing out how hypocritical Fiers is.

    I do laugh at Fiers taking the moral high ground and acting like he's some baseball purist. The guy literally got caught doctoring baseballs when he threw a no-hitter.

    Still can't get over that game: Brady's performance, Gronk, Amendola, etc. Some of those box scores will go unremembered because our defense literally could not force a single punt.
  7. Bold prediction: Jared Goff will be benched

    Rams fans seem to be in denial about Jared Goff. Paint by numbers Goff isn't getting it done when the system has been exposed:

    He absolutely is.

    It's not a question as to whether or not he's worth 300 million- he is undeniably worth that. It's the fact that because he won't sign an extension, the Sox are stuck negotiating against themselves, and they can't afford to let him walk for nothing.

    So... Jon Gruden: good football coach, bad gm? He was openly mocked all off-season (from myself included) but it's hard to argue with what he's done as a coach this season.

    I agree with you. You just can't lose a player like Mookie Betts due to luxury tax. It's a ridiculous mandate from the owners. Given the mandate, you have to get something in return for him. It's tough because he's turned down every offer they've given him and is dead set on hitting free agency.
  12. 2019 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    Yeah I'm not so sure that Sox fans should automatically be happy about JD opting in. It's still very likely he's traded, because keeping him long term over Betts would be massive mistake, and I don't think Bloom is dumb. It's a tough spot to be in. Betts is dead set on hitting free agency. So if the Red Sox play out this year and let him FA, they could walk with absolutely nothing in return. I think they almost have to move him, and hope they can re-sign him next offseason. It sucks, but you just can't risk losing him with no return.
  13. We're on to the bye...

    I really think getting Wynn back will do wonders for this offense, and we'll start to see them hit their stride at the perfect time. He's just such an upgrade over Newhouse that it will lift the entire line. You can tell that Brady, while he's still great at moving within the pocket, never feels comfortable with Newhouse back there.
  14. TNF: 49ers @ Cardinals

    Kliff's got them trending in the right direction. If I was a Cardinals fan, I'd be happy about his tenure thus far.

    I'm old enough to remember when people were concerned because Jimmy G was throwing interceptions in practice this off-season.
