  1. Manning and Peterson both have more talent than their peers here. If we are given the benefit of being able to coach them to fit better together (or Peterson to block and catch better, which he could, and Manning to practice under center more), then I’ll take them and say thanks for the talent disparity.
  2. The Jets and Jamal Adams

    Pretty easy to misconstrue who’s better by using bulk stats over a short period of time when one of the players (Troy) didn’t even start for a 1/3 of the time being compared. That’s no slight in Troy in and of itself either, few rookie defenders ever got a start under Cowher. And if there was ever a defender whose game didn’t show up in the stat box (even though he had great stats), it would be Troy. The man just flew all over the field making tackles and splash plays. Don’t disrespect his game by playing this dumb game.
  3. Well I know what a pick is, but not a roll. So I understand 50.5% of basketball.
  4. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    I just didn’t want to go to jail because of a FF post.
  5. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Wife and I took our niece to the park last year. She was two at the time (my niece). So the only other kid there was a boy (five-ish) on the swings. Well our niece wanted to swing next to him. Apparently this kid didn’t like that because he got up and walked away, saying, “this is why I don’t come to this ******g park anymore.”
  6. I want to clarify that I am asking if the sport itself is more complex, not for someone who is playing it.
  7. I’m football-only when it comes to being a sports viewer, and I never played baseball, basketball, or soccer competitively. So I don’t know the intricacies of these other sports.
  8. Saints vs Bucs Fearsome 4-some

    Getting “shut down” is part of the game when you’re a deep threat. It happens. You’ll basically never get shut down when your primary routes are short-intermediate with a heavy emphasis on slants. And in a way, that makes Thomas’ game more valuable, but that’s neither here nor there. I just want to address that there is a reason why Evans may get “shut down” more, and that it isn’t entirely due to Thomas just being better (which he is, but again, neither here nor there).
  9. Notable Stats and Observations

    What reason would all of these fans of different teams have to harbor these "feelings" that "get in the way?" Kamara is also a Saint and is also a loudmouth; yet, I defend him in every 'best HB in the NFL' thread. But I won't do the same for Thomas here. He's always been a baby.
  10. How draft classes is Mahomes worth?

    All it takes is one injury, one freak accident in the real world, or some other incident to take a career away. Or is as untradeable as it gets, but if some franchise offered me 10 whole drafts, I’ll easily take that.
  11. Which City deserves the next NFL team?

    Oklahoma City, Salt Lake City, Louisville, Atlanta x2.
  12. Saints vs Bucs Fearsome 4-some

    Evans is getting disrespected here. Thomas is perfect at what he does, but Evans is such a great all-around WR that it’s not like there’s miles between them. Certainly not as much distance as there is between Godwin and Sanders. That’s preposterous
  13. This would severely cripple universities across the board. I get there is resentment against them because they profit off of things they shouldn’t (at least not before others, who aren’t profiting yet), but I’d rather prioritize higher learning before prioritizing some minor league that no one will care to watch. On a side note, I have no idea how other countries are able to run universities. Most countries don’t care much for their college sports.
  14. LA Stadium seeking more money

    Not at all. What makes a stadium good at being a stadium? Answer: It should be the vehicle for enjoying an event. So therefore, what makes a stadium better than another stadium? Being able to provide a more enjoyable experience at an event. That’s the whole purpose of the question posed that you can’t answer without conceding your side.
