  1. Ravens Sign Mark Ingram

    Love the value on the contract relative to some other RBs out there. He basically gives us everything Gus does as a downfield runner, but he's better in pass protection and is a pretty good receiver. Meaning we won't have to continuously substitute personnel on obvious passing downs and can legitimately rotate through our backs when we want to vs when we need to. Great signing.
  2. Random Ravens Thoughts: New Forum Edition

    Yeah, I'm not sure I've ever crowned a team this early in the offseason, but the Browns are looking like the definitive AFC North favorites at this point. My goodness!
  3. Mosley Going to the Jets

    To be fair only Suh was a FA signing. Both Cooks and Talib were traded for. But yeah the overall point still holds true.
  4. Mosley Going to the Jets

    I think I read some tweet the other day like number of splashy free agent signings playoff teams from last year have made so far: 0. Point is good teams find the right players at the right price who fit their scheme. Bad teams continue to stockpile and overpay talent in hopes of getting better. I'm okay with what ED has done so far in FA, and not massively overpaying an ILB with obvious coverage deficiencies isn't exactly something to get up in arms about, especially considering we have two talented young players in Kenny and Peanut at the same position. I'll be curious to see how the rest of FA shakes out, but I'm going to go ahead and put my trust in the man who's been learning behind the great Ozzie Newsome.
  5. Captain Marvel (Spoilers! Be Aware)

    Eh, it was okay. Nothing special. Biggest critique outside of Larson playing the character fairly stiff is that Captain Marvel suffers from Superman syndrome, that is when you make a character so incredibly OP, they just inevitably become inherently boring. I'm slightly concerned how they elect to use her in Infinity War. If she becomes this deus ex machina to just wipe the floor with Thanos, I can see that leaving a really bad taste in a lot of people's mouths after they've invested over a decade of time into these other super heroes who have much wider appeal and have earned their following over multiple films.
  6. Antonio Brown traded to Oakland for a 3rd and 5th round pick

    How does (arguably) the best WR in the game go for only a third and a fifth? That's highway robbery!!
  7. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Worse. He's the real life Gabe.
  8. All-NBA Predictions

    Yup, exactly my thoughts. Another couple of guys who deserves some consideration for third team imo are Blake Griffin and Khris Middleton.
  9. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    MY GOODNESS!!! MY BODY CAN'T WAIT NO MORE!!! GIVE IT TO ME GOT!!!
  10. Yeah everyone has been so quick to blame IT in this recent stretch, but he's hardly the biggest problem on the team. Everyone's been in a bit of a slump, and all of the wings have been getting scorched defensively. Gary Harris needs to return to form ASAP.
  11. Brandon Ingram is a bad, BAD man!!! My goodness!!!
  12. Giannis is expected to play tonight, but I'm skeptical he'll see a full assortment of minutes given how they handled him against Sacramento. Lakers need to get on a roll and string some wins together vs alternating between wins and losses. Should be a fun game.
  13. Eh, Magic are no joke, at least not recently. That and it was the second game of a B2B without two of their top 6 players. Draymond and Klay looked like they spent a little bit too much time partying in South Beach after their game in Miami the night before. I wouldn't be too worried about these guys when the playoffs start.
  14. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    That's pretty neat. I'll have to take a look tomorrow. And yeah, there's a penalty tax, but fortunately it's only $163 (relative to how much I owe at the moment). Thanks for clearing up the confusion.
  15. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Heh, the taxable income was a difference of +$22,000, but somehow the difference between the total payments were -$5,600. I guess even though my wife and I both had our witholdings at 1 for state and federal, our employers just didn't hold back enough in taxes throughout the year?
