  1. 17-18 Hot Stove Thread

    $38 million over those 3 years. A good chunk of change for a 32 year old who has missed 40 or more games each of the last 3 years.
  2. I don't know if anyone wants to play the Chargers right now.
  3. It's quitter season

    All those teams were out of the playoff hunt by November, why didn't they stop playing then?
  4. RIP AIM

    AIM was huge when I was in college ('99-'03). It's what'd I'd do when I was procrastinating from doing homework while actually trying to do my homework.
  5. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Sunday at 10am on the big screen in the theater in XD.
  6. 17-18 Hot Stove Thread

    Word is that when the Giants were asking about Billy Hamilton talks stalled when the Reds insisted on Heliot Ramos. It loos like **** Williams is open to trading Hamilton, but isn't forcing it. After getting Luis Castillo for Dan Straily and Eugenio Suarez for Alfredo Simon, the Reds look to be doing something similar if they are going to move Hamilton. They don't really have another CF that is major league ready, so keeping him is an option. https://theathletic.com/185116/2017/12/14/dont-count-out-a-billy-hamilton-deal-yet-but-giants-walk-away-empty-from-winter-meetings/
  7. If the Bengals left Cincy...

    I don't think I could give up the NFL all together. Howie Long had a great line in his hall of fame speech that has always stuck with me. I love the game, and have loved it since I was 8 years old when I started playing. I love baseball, have a lot of fun playing basketball, but football is truly my sports passion. It's the game that largely shaped me into the man I have become today. The hard work, the dedication, the camaraderie that is creates between team mates, I love it all.
  8. Prospects sitting out bowl games

    It's a chance to get more tape out there against a quality opponent. Unless you're guaranteed to go in the top half of the first round, you'd more likely be better off playing. Those that sit out are also going to have questions about their love of the game. All things else equal, those little determinations come into play.
  9. The Official Recruiting Thread

    I think they can. Brown, I think Tyreke Smith is trending towards OSU, and they are holding a spot for Jackson Carmen. Then they'd still have 1 pot open. Not to mention there is a chance Emory Jones decommits (nobody knows what's going on with him it seems). I won't be surprised if they don't take any guards. They are listing Matthew Jones as a C now, and they'd have Carman and Max Wray at T's. They have 6 G's on the roster right now with Michael Jordan, Demetrius Knox, Brandon Bowen, Matthew Burrell, Josh Myers, and Wyatt Davis, and only Knox is a senior next year. They already have Doug Nester in the fold for 2019 that many seem to think ends up as a road grating G.
  10. They've released video of their previous attempt:
  11. Android Thread

    I swear by Roku. Fast, rarely ever lags, and you can still side load apps to your account.
  12. The Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Movie should end with Phoenix destroying our solar system by taking out the sun. Recast with the original x-men but create their origin in present day and not in 1962.
  13. If the Bengals left Cincy...

    If they moved I wouldn't follow them. I might still like some individual players like Geno and AJ Green, but the franchise would be dead to me. I don't know if I could pick up another team or not. Certainly not anyone else in the AFCN. Maybe the Colts, maybe the Packers (I played football with AJ Hawk so they've kind of been my second team since they drafted him, but nothing like my Bengals fandom). My overall level of enthusiasm for the NFL would undoubtedly drop. I'd probably go deeper into college football in regards to being a fan.
  14. Tyreke Smith has the size to come in and back up Bosa right away at strong side end, and would leave Chase Young and Jonathan Cooper rotating in at WDE.
