  1. Stan Lee, Marvel Comics co-creator dies at 95

    RIP to the GOAT. His work essentially defined an entire generation of movie goers. Would have loved for him to see the culmination of his work in Infinity War 2, but alas it was not meant to be. Not sure what my childhood looks like without this guy.

    Oh, my sentiment at the end there wasn't to say I don't think we'll ever see a better QB in terms of talent in our lifetime, cause given the last 5 years that bar isn't exactly insurmountable. I just meant in terms of an amazing team you loved to watch and were invested in 110% because of the cast of characters (Ray, Reed, Suggs, Webb, Boldin, Torrey, etc.), of which Joe was the leader of, I don't think it'll get better than those teams we fielded from 2008-2012.

    As crappy as he has been these last 5 years, he's still the best QB to ever have donned a Ravens uniform. And whatever happens from here, I'll forever be grateful for his time in Baltimore, culminating in a Super Bowl victory. Honestly, I have never loved football more than in those first 5 years where each successive year we found a way to make the playoffs and build on top of what we had done the year before. I don't think it'll get any better than that in terms of football, at least in my lifetime.

    Eh, I like this trade better for all parties (obviously with some additional draft picks being exchanged, as well): http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=y8tyl49j

    Lol! Maybe I should look at the actual quote before posting next time
  6. Anime and Manga Thread.

    Interesting, I thought season 1 was just meh and only watched season 2 because I felt compelled to after having watched the first. I thought the pacing, action and actual story of the second season were significantly better. But it's all subjective.
  7. Wait, I thought Ellington went on IR for the Texans? How's that work? Did he get an injury settlement or something?
  8. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    See that's what I like, and even better you kept the opening curly brace on the same line. So kudos to you good sir. What I hate is this: if (someCondition) doSomething(); if (anotherCondition) doSomethingElse(); Screw them being optional, it's called readability people!

    Heh, did not realize that. I guess my only reply to that is, experience can only help?

    On average, yes. My point he's coming in for boom or bust plays at the moment. We see multiple instances where he'll gain MAYBE a yard, but then break off one long run for 15-20 yards or two runs for 10 yards in a game to boost his overall average. Giving him consecutive plays to build a rhythm and gain positive yardage can only help, imo.

    I disagree. Maybe not so much a whole series, but I'd love to see him utilized in much the same way the Saints use Taysom Hill, where he will be in there for 2-3 plays at a time to keep the defense on their toes. Jackson's one play stints where he comes in and gets a yard do virtually nothing for our offense as is, he can only help the offense by seeing the field more, given his role.
  12. Midseason Evaluations and Notes

    I think sometimes Harbaugh's biggest problem and this is probably a systemic thing within the organization, is that he overvalues continuity. In the sense that, in addition to finding coordinators who he has previous connections and familiarity with, it seems at times he goes out of his way to target older coaches who are much less likely to get poached or hired for a head coaching job at this point in their careers, i.e. see what happened with Kubiak - the lone exception. And from an organizational standpoint, beyond the scope of football, I understand the merits of doing it. However, given the nature of the beast and the level of competition in the NFL, it just doesn't make sense to keep going with retreads and fall further and further behind the curve.

    I love that Sean Payton loves Sean Payton's own play calls.
