  1. Just How Good Is Josh Jacobs

    Chubb is probably about the 4th-6th best RB in the league. i'm fine drawing a tier after CMC Barkley Elliott or maybe adding Kamara to that tier 1. If you want to add Cook, I would say there is no way to exclude Chubb.
  2. Just How Good Is Josh Jacobs

    It seems to be you put Cook/Zeke/Kamara in tier 1, but not Chubb. Then moved on to only debating Chubb vs CMC and Barkley. Doesn't make any sense.
  3. Stock Investing

    Makes sense, I was really just chiming in with a rant that wasn't super related. Pinterest is an interesting buy for sure but I view it as high risk/high reward and more potential than anything.
  4. Stock Investing

    I understand that @MKnight82 is saying you are making a mountain out of a molehill here, but the "you must be fun at parties" line is a common one for people who don't like what they're hearing because it doesn't align with their bad habits or beliefs. I typically bite my tongue, but I have friends who spend crazy dollars (sometimes windfalls and inheritance) on trying to beat the market and if it's significant I try to say something. Same with a large volume of sports betting, going to the casino, and even worse playing keno/lottery/scratch-offs. If possible I try to subtly make sure they understand they're in a long-term losing position. Trying to beat the stock market is a form of gambling. Gambling is a form of entertainment and should be treated as such.
  5. Week 10 GDT: Battle of Lake Erie!

    Agreed, Daboll is terrible. It seemed to me that man was working really well for Cleveland but then they ran rubs and got Beasley wide open a couple times. When we ran zone it seems like Allen new it right away and took advantage.
  6. Week 10 GDT: Battle of Lake Erie!

    Was really impressed with your blocking and Josh Allen in general. It also seemed you easily identified zone and man on a regular basis and accordingly ran routes to beat it... Was a little disappointed in Wilks disguising ability.
  7. While the timeout issue is frustrating as hell (dumb challenges in the 2nd half too) when to institute tempo is also a major issue IMO. He needs a guy on the sideline telling him the optimal ways to approach drives from a speed/passing perspective as well as telling him the ideal time to take timeouts at the end of games, go for it on 4th, go for 2, etc. Michigan for example has a coach who tells Harbaugh precisely that info. It's clear the browns are not doing so IMO.
  8. My biggest issue with Freddie is he doesn't seem to understand what his job is as head coach - he's still basically a coordinator. It's the head coaches job to put his team in the best position to win as it pertains to the clock, challenges, personnel, game planning, etc. The majority of NFL games are not won or lost based on the tiny details of each drive that takes place - they are won or loss based on how efficiently the team uses the 60 minutes available to them. Perfect example is last game we are down 5 with 7:21 left. We have already burned 2 timeouts inexplicably. There will likely be two scenarios possession wise: CLE/DEN ball or CLE/DEN/CLE ball, irregardless of the results of the drives. Freddie should be trying to make sure we have time for 2 possessions in case something goes wrong on possession one. Instead we played with zero tempo, burned 4:02 and our last timeout and never got another shot with the ball. This has happened ALL SEASON. How many times now have we not had our 3 timeouts at the end of a game? I'm also a firm believer that coaching stands out most inside the 20s. We have been horrid in the redzone and I blame our approaches from a play calling and coaching perspective.
  9. Weekly Picks Tie Breaker Rules.

    That's a ridiculous rule and you got hosed. People just do the closest in points and then if it's tied split the $$.
  10. 2019 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    Agreed, for financial reasons if I'm LAD, I'm just keeping what I have on the infield.
  11. 2019 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    It's laughable Morosi says they want one of the most valuable pieces in baseball without dangling Lux or May. I know their farm system is nice and all, but yeesh.
  12. Add/Drop thread

    He's a beast
  13. OL Situation

    I think that's worse for the outlook of Denzel and Greedy.
  14. Formerly The Gnat's Dynasty League - Drafting

    If anyone loves Mixon, Gordon, Montgomery or Penny I wouldn't mind seguing one into a comparable WR.
  15. Cleveland Indians Thread : we might have a nice thing!

    Welp Kipnis is out for the year. Reyes scratched with a family matter. This lineup is brutal.
