  1. WEEK 11 Pickem

    Ha. This might be a good idea, though. When making our weekly picks, we can all add a personal opinion about something football related. OK, I'll go next... Russel Wilson is overrrrrrrrrrated.
  2. WEEK 10, Pickem!

  3. WEEK 10, Pickem!

    Yes, the Niners won because I changed my pick to NYG last minute.
  4. WEEK 10, Pickem!

    You beat me to it. How does anyone pick this game with confidence? Both teams have different needs in next year's draft as well, so is there any real relevance to this game?
  5. WEEK 9 Picks!

    Wooo hooo! My overall record still sucks donkey balls, though. I need an undefeated week to get back into this.
  6. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    The NFL handled the whole anthem protesting thing like complete chumps (both the players protesting and league management - but mainly the protesters, which caused the entire league to look like idiots). See my post here to show the difference between the NFL and NHL.

    Speaking of Rams and Eagles... Denver and NYG got SMOOOKKKEEDDDD today. Wow. Great week all around!
  8. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    /\ Love the back and forth. I think the truth lies somewhere in the middle. MGK puts the Pats at 1/2, the poster formerly known as bolt puts the Pats at 7/8. Personally, I see them in the 4.257369 range. Major problems at OL & LB, but it's hard to write off the GOATS. While my interest in the NFL is declining, I appreciate the parity this year. There's 8-9 teams that have a real shot to win this year which will keep things interesting. Ultimately I think injuries will play a major role this year since the gap in talent is so close. Week 15 Pats/Steelers should reveal a lot. I've always liked Ben, but feel he's declining - and Tomlin is mediocre, but Brown/Bell are explosive and their defense is championship caliber. KC kicked our ass and I like Reid as a coach, but won't trust them in the playoffs until proven otherwise. I like what's happening in Philly and LA(Rams), but have the same reservations as KC. Seattle is Seattle. NFC is anyone's game. Except the Giants... f*ck them.
  9. Random Thoughts

    Here's a Random Thought. If we created a show called TBorg Random Thoughts, which consisted of everyone who has posted in this thread sitting at a roundtable (live) saying exactly the things we have posted here (all at the same time, like one big random out of focus argument) and it aired on ESPN, we would put those MFers like Skip Bayless, Shannon Sharpe, Max Kellerman and Stephen A out of business. First Take, my ass. How about 26 takes all at the same time.

    The trolling on TB.org is also better thought out. OOops....
  11. Random Thoughts

    I think there's less bullshit here than ESPN. Shannon Sharpe makes us all seem very reasonable and articulate.
  12. Random Thoughts

    Other QBs who would have never gotten to/won a Super Bowl if their defense/other players didn't carry them: Flacco, Wilson, Eli (twice), Peyton (last one), Bradshaw, Dilfer, McMahon, Grossman

    I think Dave's post was more about Kaepernick sucking and less about Tebow (with Tebow being mentioned for social outrage purposes). Kaep had a game in which he threw for 4 yards. 4 passing yards! While Bill cut Tebow, he didn't even give Kaep a chance... and it's not like Bill doesn't give guys who could potentially be a distraction a chance (Dillon, Moss, Ocho, etc.). Now I'm not saying Kaepernick totally sucks, he's gifted athletically, but he has to FIT a team's system in order for him to succeed. What a concept! The social outrage I have seen is simply uneducated. If people want to make a case for the Texans to sign Kaep, I would totally understand. Seems like it might work. If Cam goes down in CAR, sure... there might be a handful of teams here. But anyone who has recently bashed the Pats for not considering him (and there's been plenty of it via sports talk shows, twitter, etc.) is out of their fucking mind and downright ignorant.

    I often do this when my wife starts telling me a long winded story.
  15. Random Thoughts

    If I stopped watching the NFL completely, I would still have more interest in it than I do the NBA.
  16. Random Thoughts

    I hate the media part of it with a passion, but I am just less interested in the games overall. I can tune out/ignore the media. Part of it might just be where I'm at in life. Married, 3 kids, crazy job... I have a ton of other shit going on, which doesn't allow me to follow it consistently. But the games in general are just less exciting to me (and I hate that I feel that way). Certain rules push me away. Hate, hate, hate pass interference. I get the egregious stuff, but ticky tack calls need to go. The field is 53x120. If you can't get separation from the defense, they should be allowed to make contact. That's just 1 of 50 examples I could give. Part of it could also be that for about 10 years my life revolved around football and I'm somewhat burnt out. I've gotten a little more into college football over the past 5 years and do enjoy following it now. The other night I chose to watch Game 5 of the World Series instead of the Steelers - Lions game (and glad I did). If it happens to go 7 games, I will do it again this Thursday (no idea what the NFL game even is). And I have NEVER chosen MLB over NFL. My NHL to NFL games viewed this year is probably 10:1, and that includes Patriots games. I dunno. Maybe my brain only has capacity to focus on a certain amount of things at once and those "things" are shifting.
  17. Random Thoughts

    I am concerned about my declining interest in the NFL as a whole.
  18. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Right?! Has a team ever just had 1 QB on the roster? Is Hoyer coming back as part of the deal? Is Brady actually invincible? (maybe) Wondering if the Pats are going to immediately swing that pick for some players/help this year. So many questions, so little patience. Time to go on twitter for the next 3 hours...
  19. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Pats just traded Garoppolo to SF for a 2nd round pick...
  20. WEEK 8 Predictions

    I did the same EXACT thing. Like, Oakland beat KC... they can't lose to Buffalo, right? I really need to stop using logic. On games where I have been 50/50 this year, I think I'm 0% on my guesses.
  21. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Hightower might actually be worse. Using the completely made up, fictitious ratings below, the drop off from Hightower to whoever has to replace him is probably larger than most. Brady 101 OVR, Garoppolo 82 OVR = 19 pt variance Hightower 97 OVR, LB replacement 54 OVR = 43 pt variance
  22. Random Thoughts

    Damn. If my love for hockey and heavy metal (both "white" interests) weren't enough... my love for math, which happened to be my favorite subject hence my degree and occupation in finance, confirms I am in fact a racist. Shit. Seriously though, I find the article highly offensive.
  23. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Funny story about yesterday (actually not funny in the least, but I'll share anyways...). Sunday morning I woke up at 3:30am for no apparent reason and couldn't get back to sleep. Went downstairs and started flipping through channels to see what was on TV. I was pleasantly surprised to see the NFL Network was replaying the Pats/Falcons Super Bowl in it's entirety from 4-7am. So I made some coffee and spent my morning re-watching it. Wife and kids started waking up on queue at 7am. The only downside was that I was toast by 9pm last night, crashed mid-1st quarter and basically saw none of the game (which now makes 4 in a row). Cool story, Bodom.

    You still have 3-4 more years to make that a reality!
