  1. Broncos Hire Rich Scangarello as OC

    Not saying they arent, but many times this has been said and it didnt turn out nearly as well as people thought. However, if I were a Broncos fan, I'd certainly be excited about the potential of the coaching staff, especially in regards to the defense. The offense is still a question mark, but that could be addressed if they can find a better QB and maybe another dependable weapon at WR.
  2. Las Vegas Raider Stadium

    But if you look at all 32 teams, they are definitely a team where you can say that its very possible they are picking that high in 2020 and/or 2021. Obviously alot can happen in the meantime, but based on current trajectory in regards to team quality and need for a QB,, Id say they are probably in the top 5... Raiders - Look to be in full rebuild mode...Carr hasnt looked good under Gruden. Giants . - Eli gone soon, Giants are just meh all around. Cardinals - Too soon to say about Rosen, but team is not looking too strong right now. Bucs - I think Arians, at the very least, will have this team playing well enough to keep them from getting TL, but its not out of the question. Redskins - I could see them falling off hard soon. Not a fan of the OTHER Gruden either and Smith may never be the same. Dolphins - Not lookng good IMO. ...look to me RIGHT NOW as perhaps the most likely landing spots for Trevor Lawrence. Teams like the Steelers, Pats, Chargers, Jags and Saints will all be looking for QBs of the future, but I cant foresee any of them picking high enough in 2020 or 2021 to have a shot at Lawrence....who knows, though?
  3. Spiderman: Far from home

    Great post. I respect your stance, but I guess I'm just a fan of the traditional and most common takes on characters. Not that I'm not open minded to certain changes, but this change to her makes her come across like a COMPLETELY different and unrecognizable character. Goes back to Lex Luthor in BvS...you could argue that they used a lot of influence from early comics where he was quirky with wild red hair. I hated that take and I'm not a fan of this either. However, MJ isn't QUITE important enough of a character to me for it to hurt the movie if the rest of it is good.
  4. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    You claimed I never gave Ben credit. You were flat out wrong about that. Just because I dont think he is as good as you do doesnt mean I haven't given him adequate credit. My comment about him being traded has more to do with his drama and declining play. I said immediately after "I know what that might mean..." meaning years of subpar QB play. That comment in general is a reflection of my frustration with this team as a whole...not JUST Ben. As far as Brees/Ben, I've never seen any such analysis from you, so I can't comment. My only point in that debate is that you can't look at limited stats and metrics and act like they tell a story they actually dont. If you think Ben is better, again, that's fine. My issue with your comment was you basically acting like it was foolish to believe otherwise....when I can guarantee your opinion in that comparison is not a widely held one. Not saying that means you're wrong, but there is plenty of valid reasons and logic why Brees is widely considered the superior QB.
  5. Spiderman: Far from home

    Sure, and ignorance is bliss.
  6. even munchak is tired of this

    There are fans of 30 other teams that wish they had as much success as BB and the Patriots. Relative to them...everyone underachieves. I'm not necessarily making excuses for our shortcomings, but it's not fair to compare any team to the Pats. Despite our underachieving, we are arguably the 2nd most successful franchise during the Brady/Belichick era.
  7. DC Movie Universe

    Just as convoluted and nonsensical as his movies were.
  8. Spiderman: Far from home

    Well, the majority of moviegoers are casual Spider-Man fans who don't know much about MJ. Obviously people who know what her character is supposed to be are going to like her less. So in that regard, I agree with you. but you could have said the same thing about Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman. Most of the people who complained about Lex were fans who knew the character well. Bottom line... just because some people don't care or realize a character is being butchered doesn't mean it isn't happening.
  9. Spiderman: Far from home

    No, but you were clearly triggered because I dont like it...which is why I phrased it the way I did. It's not the casting I care about as much as the portrayal. Why not just make her an original character rather than completely butcher a well-established character?
  10. Spiderman: Far from home

    I hated Dunst too. I just think they would've been smarter to make this version a completely original character rather than make her MJ at all.
  11. Spiderman: Far from home

    Sorry I hurt your feelings, sweetie.
  12. Diablo 3

    Was thinking about trying to get into this, but dont really know much about it. I mean, I know about Diablo, but not much about 3. What's up with the "seasons"?
  13. even munchak is tired of this

    Pretty much the exact thought we all have everytime we respond to you. You and chrissyororke in the same thread....truly an all-star duo.
  14. even munchak is tired of this

    A guy with as many stupid ideas as you shouldn't be calling anyone a "clown".
  15. My rankings of the 8 Coaching hires and post your own too!

    No homerism here, huh? Look, I dont know much about Kitchens, but I do think he is in a good position to succeed. However, the logic that he has had success with his franchise QB is a bit flawed, because he had success with Baker while coaching him as an offensive coordinator. Its a different animal going from running JUST the offense with low expectations to running an entire team with high expectations. He isnt going to be able to focus soley on Baker and offense anymore....he is running the whole damn show. Alot of great coordinators fail to make the transition. Im not saying you are wrong. Your list could be spot on in the long run. However, I could just as easily see this list being completely flipped in regards to who ends up the most successful.
