  1. Cowboys sign K Greg Zuerlein

    Kinda strange. I mean, I wasn't super stoked that they re-signed Forbath, but why do that and then put a deal like this for Zurlein? I'm guessing Forbath was just insurance? Oh well, anything is better than Brett Maher.
  2. Travis Frederick Retires

    And hear comes all of the Philly fans to exhibit their outpour of classy support. Deep, scientific research: - 2017: Frederick..no playoffs - 2018: Looney..playoffs - 2019: Frederick..no playoffs - 2020: Looney..???
  3. I still can't get over the fact that Kyle Shannahan is a 40-year old wearing a flat-billed cap, trying to look like a 20-year old Kyle...while looking like a 20-year old "Kyle". Triple Inception.
  4. Troy Polamalu >>> Ed Reed

    Troy was one of the best Football players I've ever seen and I'm not going off of team/recency bias (I've been watching since the '80s and I can't stand the Steelers/Packers). Reed was beyond phenomenal in his role as a safety, but I'd take Troy if they were both in this year's draft. One was guaranteed to get you available turnovers (Ed), one was guaranteed to will the defense into every game (Troy).
  5. What is your favorite SB halftime show of all time?

    Michael Jackson, followed by Prince.
  6. UNIVERSAL AND BLOOMHOUSE REMAKING THE THING!

    Yes. By a helluva director and a star-studded cast. my contention is that Hollywood has been bombing remakes the past decade. I have no faith they won’t make this a joke. The main character will be played by Jennifer Lawrence or something dumb like that. Hope I’m wrong.
  7. UNIVERSAL AND BLOOMHOUSE REMAKING THE THING!

    They really shouldn't. As much as it's been my Favorite movie ever....EVER.....I think that any attempt recreate the movie magic of that great film will fall very short.
  8. How many Super Bowls did you watch?

    The first one I vividly remember watching was Raiders vs. Redskins in the early 80's. I watched every one of them from that point forward until about '98. Then, I went on a hiatus for almost a decade until Giants vs Patriots in 2007. I haven't missed one since but there were a few times in the past couple of years where I felt like skipping it due to being tired of seeing the Patriots in the SB. Only because I rooted for them to lose did I even bother watching.
  9. I’d have to wait until after the game to rank the winner.
  10. Which City deserves the next NFL team?

    OKC for sure. That's a football state that's been dying for an NFL team to get behind. I'm stationed 20 minutes from STL and no one gives a poop about an STL team. It's always been about Cardinals Baseball . Now that the Blues have finally won a Stanley Cup, it's going to be hard to get people back into NFL after the bad taste that Kronke left. The people that are still interested in pro football will have their XFL team here soon enough to fill that small void. Besides, everyone in MO/KS/Southern IL are Chiefs fans (some of them overnight....).
  11. Giants hire Jason Garrett as OC; Freddie Kitchens as TE coach

    We've already seen him as a playcaller. There's a reason why he got those duties pulled from him.
  12. Giants hire Jason Garrett as OC; Freddie Kitchens as TE coach

    Lol! Sounds like more wishful thinking on your part. Garrett is a loser, through and through.
  13. who would you say should be in HOF ?

    Drew Pearson
  14. Giants hire Jason Garrett as OC; Freddie Kitchens as TE coach

    He's an okay "mentor" and had a hand in rebuilding the culture of the team, more specifically rebuilding the O-line (which Callahan probably had a bigger hand in), but that's where I'll stop for positives. He wasn't a great OC. He would never scheme players open or adopt newer philosophies like pick/rub routes. For a time there, he tried to copy Belichick and pushed for running a full time 12-personnel scheme, drafting Gavin Escobar, talking about it...only to abandon it. He was always learning on the job. It just seemed like he was 3-4 years behind any trend. It took him years to finally start running the ball (was probably more of Callahan's doing). As a HC, he gave us nothing on Sundays. It took above average rosters to win despite him. Some believe his headset was tuned into an easy listening station. Clap, raise mic to spit and slap butts. That's Jason. Vanilla, ineffective, spineless, fake, won't take responsibility and will absolutely throw any and everyone under the bus. There are former players that contend that he sabotaged Wade Phillips the year he got fired mid-season. He didn't like Callahan and caused a rift there, causing Callahan to want out of Dallas (Jerry wouldn't allow him to interview...made him stay his last year, which all the more p*ssed off Calahan). Uggg...I'll l stop here. Being real. I really hope that your Giants don't sign him....being serious. Yes, it would be funny/advantageous as a Dallas fan, but the guy never deserved to be a Coach in the NFL and still doesn't. I just can't stand the idea of frauds/shammers like him squeaking through the cracks all of his life (and boy has he since his days at Princeton/Colombia). I'll part with these final words: Someone who worked on his staff was anonymously quoted as saying "He's the smartest dumb **********er I've ever worked with".
  15. Giants hire Jason Garrett as OC; Freddie Kitchens as TE coach

    Just know this. You can't sign just one Garrett. It's a package deal that brings the whole caravan of charlatans with it. 5 Minutes after Jason is signed, Judd and John will be given some type of scout or assistant coaching position.
