  1. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    This thread is for all of your NFL 2017-2018 season discussion. There is no other way to start this thread. Everything else for Tom Brady is just gravy.
  2. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    No. Those quarterbacks enter the conversation because fans outside of New England need something to cling to when desperately trying to avoid the blunt reality that Tom Brady is easily the GOAT, and it's not close. Tom Brady and the Hoodie have essentially broken the NFL, and fans outside of New England can't wrap their biased little brains around it, so they search for any detail to create arguments that say otherwise. It's pathetic, actually. Or they do what you just did, in part, and create their own version of history to reflect the desire to debate who the GOAT is. This analysis is terrible. Truly. Peyton Manning/Aaron Rogers have nearly always had better receivers than Tom Brady. Troy Aikman had great receivers during his SB runs, and let's not forget a little known name in Emmitt Smith giving him room to throw. Elway was basically sitting next to Dan Marino until Terrell Davis got him to two Super Bowls. I mean, I could go on and on, really. Your view on Dan Marino is the only one that is accurate, by my estimation. Dude, I appreciate your posts, because the rest of the meatheads on this forum are typically best served by keeping to the sexy girls threads, but sometimes your analysis is cringe-worthy biased and self-serving. When I post about Tom Brady, I at least make it clear that I am total homer, but also incredibly correct. ( ) That you try to veil this dreck in objectivity is almost Trumpian.

    I never thought the Chiefs had a legitimate chance at anything, despite a Week 1 win against the Patriots. Alex Smith is a meager step up from Ryan Fitzpatrick as a starting quarterback. And he always has been.

    Drugs'll do that.

    This isn’t outside the norm for the Patriots in Miami. It’s pretty well documented. New England fans all know Brady often plays average-to-poor down south. I’m enjoying watching the Patriots play their usual hit-or-miss game in Miami. Gronk being out is an issue, sure, but the Patriots have played poorly all game. Top-down. Bad scheming, bad play by Brady. Soft defense.
  6. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Tom Brady being casually listed on the injury report is something that has been happening for many years.
  7. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    I don't think that hit was dirty at all. Could he have blocked Burflict with less impact? Sure. But both players were practically running chest forward at each other. It's not JuJu's fault that Burflict kept his eyes entirely on the ball-carrier. Now, the Gronk hit? THAT was dirty. And I loved it.

    Peace out, Ben McADon't. Literally, no one is going to miss you. Related-but-unrelated: Marvin Lewis has to be the luckiest motherf*cker on the planet to still have his job.
  9. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    I think they do that anytime they're in Seattle, 'cause clearly they're hip to the Seattle grunge scene of the 90s. Yo, Philly is a good team, but they're also somewhat pretenders. They've played mostly inferior teams, and if not out-and-out inferior; the teams have been inferior at positions specific to PHI's talents. I said this a week ago or so, but Wentz is going to have no idea what to do with complicated NFL blitz packages. He's been able to get away from 3 or 4 man rushes at the line, but more complicated LB / CB blitz packages are over that dude's head. And I don't blame him: dude is a second-year player, after all. Last night's game is going to serve as a model for all other teams to pick apart PHI moving forward. Seattle's defense being somewhat in shambles right now doesn't help the narrative that PHI is going to be able to stand up against proven NFL commodities. We shall soon see! So far, I have reason to believe that if Seattle and New Orleans make it to the playoffs, that they're the teams in the NFC to beat. I am not getting on the PHI and MIN hype trains. I have no reason to believe either team is ready to handle the spotlight pressure.

    Ben McAdoo looks like a f*cking clown on the sidelines.

    Read any QB statements about this story (from Steve Young to Tom Brady) and pretty much all of them have said that if they were Eli, they would have told the Giants to eat shit, as well.
  12. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    In my estimation, management knew they were moving away from Eli--they offered him the chance to start games, but not finish them, and he turned that down. Gino probably wound up being the choice because they probably don't want a straight-up Bills-from-last-week episode of QB shuffling incompetence by putting in the 3rd-string rookie QB. There are no secrets in Gino's game; dude has started over 2 seasons worth of games. Everyone knows what Gino's game is about. Giants management blew it. Mara blew it. Eli is going to walk away from this whole thing as a martyr, just like Bolt said.
  13. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Spoken like a true bottom feeder who’s been waiting for their uppercumance after what feels like a generation of woeful ineptitude.
  14. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    I am by no means a Giants fan, for obvious reasons. I take great joy in taking shots at the Manning legacy in the NFL. This all being said, Ben F*ckadoo benching Eli Manning is a disgrace. F*ckadoo and Jerry Reese clearly care more about their positions than honoring a career that has brought the Giants more success than the majority of their quarterbacks. Gino fkn Smith... F*ck you, Ben F*ckadoo and Jerry Reese. May the Giants not reach the playoffs for the remainder of their tenure.

    Meanwhile, Baltimore is wondering where handlebar stache Joe Flacco went. Do you remember a time not long ago when Joe Flacco told reporters that he thought himself ‘Elite’? What a hum-dinger.
  16. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    That you’re tallying all of the many recent Patriots Super Bowl victories/appearances as a retrospective measure on how dominant they’ve been is really all the content I need to disregard the ol’ ‘dominant win’ dialogue. The Vikings are not going to the Super Bowl. That’s a ‘fist-full of pubes’ bet right there. (Sorry, Pocky.)
  17. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    A slight against Wentz and the reason why I would be (mostly) cool with an Eagles/Patriots Super Bowl (should it happen) is that he’s been saved a lot this year by his legs/agility/ability when his protection has broken down. He scrambles outside the pocket multiple times a game due to broken protection, and the Hoodie won’t stand for that bush league, college freestyle sh*t. They’ve played some really sh*tty-to-mediocre offenses this year. Green Bay with Rodgers was arguably their greatest threat to date in the 2017 schedule on week 1, and they lost that sh*t. Patriots play in a weak AFC East, but the Patriots are a proven post-season commodity despite their division’s competition level. The Eagles’ Achilles heel is time of possession. In close games, they’ve won out in the 4th by keeping the ball for long stretches at a time in-between Wentz’s freestyling and admittedly solid pocket work. But I like the Pats’ secondary against the Eagles WRs. I trust in Matt Patricia’s ability to throw Wentz’s read progression off with solid man-to-man by the DBs, and some designed blitzes to f*ck up his sophomore sensibilities.
  18. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    I know it's not just him, but without Wentz, they wouldn't be nearly the same team. He's in the running (currently leading?) for MVP for a pretty good reason.
  19. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    I love the hype the Eagles are getting. I love that they are hyped as the team to beat in the playoffs. I love that a team that hasn't been to the playoffs in almost a decade gets top billing because of some hot sophomore quarterback play this season against mostly god awful teams. Keep it coming, news media. Anything to keep the spotlight away from the Patriots.

  21. MGK's Videogames Thread

    I've made several threads associated with videogames for specific platforms (Mobile, Console, Retro, PC), which all trail off onto off-topic games. I've decided to create an aggregate thread for all of these posts I make about videogames and more. And this is that. Back in the day, I mentioned playing Fallout 4. I really enjoyed Fallout 4, but the story overall left me wanting more, and not in a good way. Great game world; not so great story. I'll go back to this game once Survival Mode hits in an upcoming update, and all of the expansion packs are released. Great game. Recommended. 4 yaks out of 5. I then went from Fallout 4 to Lord of the Rings: Shadow of Mordor, which is a stealth action/RPG. Good-to-great game. Recommended. 3.5 yaks of out 5. After Lord of the Rings, I went to Dragon Age: Inquisition. Better story/in-game character interactions than Fallout 4, and not a terrible game engine. Had a lot of fun with this game. Good-to-great game. Recommended. 3.5 yaks out of 5. Now I've shifted over to the leading game for why I bought an Xbox One console, State of Decay: Year One Edition. This is the closest game to a 'Walking Dead'-style experience that has yet to be fully realized. It's on an old Xbox 360 game engine, so the visuals and geography are a little sloppy. The game engine is not perfect, but I can overlook some of the erratic bugs for the pure nature of the game. It's such a good game. Early impressions: 4 yaks out of 5. I also fired up Witcher 3 for a hot second to get a sense of how that game presents itself. I'm looking forward to playing this gem, as it became clear to me very early on that this is a game that is positioned to appeal to adults. Everything that I saw in my brief introduction made me feel like this game has a ton to offer.

    Idiot points assigned to all sports shows that have credited the Legion of Boom's decent with the byline "Legion of Doom," thinking that they're so clever, when the Legion of Boom was originally obviously created as a riff off the pro wrestling tag-team, The Legion of Doom. I don't know what's worst, that someone wrote that byline not knowing the actual Legion of Doom tag team name, or thinking that "The Legion of Boom" was just some random name that professional football players came up with themselves.
  23. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Of the current teams showing a clear path to the playoffs, I have no reason to believe that the Patriots cannot beat them all.
  24. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    God damn, I love watching the GOAT play football.

    Some really great deals on digital downloads at Microsoft for their online Black Friday discounts, which are now live. Even though they have recent releases marked down to $40.00, the real value is in last year's games and other misc. game bundles. My picks: Rise of the Tomb Raider - $10 BioShock 1, 2, and 3 remastered - $20 Dishonored 1, 2, and the recent 2.5 game stand-alone - $32 Basically $10 a game. I love me some Black Friday digital download sales.
