505 Pro Bowl
  1. GDT Week 3: Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers

    God I hope your right but 41 against this D would be difficult. The Packers are an interesting team this year. They have been better than expected on defense and the new additions have really showed up while some of the rookies/young talent have taken jumps. That being said we have played Trubs & Cousins who are bad but keep any team under 20 is hard in today's NFL and keeping a team to 3 points is really hard. The Vikings have a lot of talent with Diggs, Thielen, & Cook but for the most part the D slowed them down. Explosive plays made the defense look worse than they actually played for most of the game. The offense has not looked crisp the majority of the year. Outside the 2nd quarter in Chicago and the 1st when playing Minnesota it has been totally stymied. But like the defense we are not really sure if that's partially due to playing the Bears or Vikings defenses or if its a deeper issue.
  2. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    Unless its completely obvious I wouldn't even bother.
  3. How are the refs so awful

    I would much rather have a few missed penalties than way too many. As long as its called consistent for both teams I don't even want to see the refs.

    Yea I have no fricken idea anymore and honestly I don't think even the coaches know. Just an odd series of events.
  5. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    Maybe it didn't. I guess I just assumed it had something to do with it.
  6. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    You may not like it but that was text book OPI. Cook wasn't even attempting to run a route. He ran right to the LB and blocked him out of the play. I think the play would have been made anyways and I still don't like the call after the fact but that was OPI.
  7. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    Eh I don't blame the Saints. I blame the refs in that game who missed the most obvious pass interference penalty of the century. Also the NFL for not having full time refs and half there refs being in there 50s/60s isn't excusable considering how much they make and how important refs have become.
  8. How are the refs so awful

    The only time I hate the refs is when they call penalties that on review weren't penalties. Obviously they did not see the penalty in these instances and instead are just guessing. I would rather they just let the players play unless they are absolutely sure of a penalty taking place.

    Maybe not technically but the challenge rule opened this up for review. I hate the rule. Challenging penalties is such a moronic step for the NFL.
  10. What might the KSO look like?

    If Alexander comes down with the INT on Diggs, the other that went right through his arms later in the game, and King catches the INT to Thielen its not even close. Football is definitely a game of inches but at the end of the day the Packers defense held a pretty good offensive team to 16 points. Cousins may not be a world beater but he has two star WRs, an at least average TE, and a star RB. Cousins wasn't just bad because he was bad. GB also had something to do with Cousins looking bad.
  11. What might the KSO look like?

    Eh they gave up the 75 yard TD that made it look worse than it was but in a play by play basis they were fine. Still got to stop big plays though as they count just the same as long drives. I was encouraged especially by the secondary play who had really good days on Thielen & Diggs.
  12. What might the KSO look like?

    I noticed this in the game. Any time Cousins had a PA rollout one of the Smiths was instantly in his face. Essentially the defense is letting you run the ball some to take away the big plays in the passing game. Odd game to review really. I feel like the Packers D had a great day but at the same time the 3 big plays (Diggs, Beebee, Cook) really kept it closer than it seemed to look. On top of that Cousins should have been INT on the Diggs play or at the very least it should have been broken up and Cousins should have been sacked on the Beebee play if not for an extremely savvy move from Beebee to cut off his route and help his QB (Good throw going down by Cousins as well). You also look at the call backed TD on Cook PI affecting the outcome as well. I'm happy as hell that the Packers D looks legit but its still up in the air on how legit it actually is.
  13. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    I hate the challenging of penalties that are not clear calls (12 men on the field).... I hated it when they announced it and I hate it even though it benefited my team. That being said the Dalvin Cook call wasn't even the worst OPI in that game. I thought the one on Thielen in the endzone was worse or maybe I just didn't see a push. Dalvin Cook blocked the LB literally out of his zone leaving Diggs wide open. It just wasn't a very good play by Cook there. (The play may have still been made and most likely Diggs is still in or at least on the 1 without the block).
  14. Borderlands 3

    I'm a fan of gun skills since the game is basically about collecting the best guns and Moze has great synergy with different gun builds. I haven't really found a weakness to her shield of retribution tree which gives her a lot of stacked DPS while also allowing a boost to her shield. Plus getting into the thick of combat and then popping her Iron Bear skill never gets old.
