  1. Blank on Ryan

    Did you see the year Carr just had? It was great! Raiders have a great young offensive core in Carr, Latavius Murray, Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.
  2. Mlb Offseason

    Nottingham is a catcher so this could be a precursor to the Brewers trading Johnathan Lecroy.
  3. Mlb Offseason

    Indians sign P Tommy Hunter. 1 year for $2M.

    A's are reportedly close to a trade with the Brewers.   Susan Slusser ‏@susanslusser  3m3 minutes ago Hearing the #Athletics on verge of a trade, looks like with #Brewers.

    WOW!!!! Are you kidding me??

    The Brewers signed Blaine Boyer to a minor-league contract. Boyer had a solid year out of the Twins bullpen in 2015. He was also good for the Padres in 2014.
  7. Backup QB solved - Matt Hasselback

    I just appreciate that we were able to have this discussion like grown adults. So you just moved up on my list of favorite posters.

    The Cubs have signed OF Matt Murton to a minor league deal. You may remember Murton has being traded from Boston to Chicago in the Nomar Garciaparra trade. He debuted with the Cubs in 2005 and had a few years of great production (.294/.362/.448) for the Cubs before being dealt to the A's (along with Josh Donaldson) in the Rich Harden deal. Since 2010 Murton has been playing in Japan and putting up great numbers. In his 6 years in Japan he hit .310/.352/.437.
  9. No LSU Football in 2016?

    There's no way this will happen. They would run that Governor out of the state. The LSU football program brings in far too much money for them to cut it off.

    Glenn Hubbard is the bench coach for the Royals single-A (don't know which one) and they are having a bobblehead of Hubbard's 1980s baseball card of him holding the snake. I've got that card myself somewhere.
  11. Backup QB solved - Matt Hasselback

    I saw Aikman play and he wasn't Steve Young or Brett Farve or Dan Marino or even Elway when Elway was under Shanahan. I'm comparing him against the guys of his era. Not today's standards. I mentioned why Aikman got into the HOF and it's because of his 3 SB wins. He was never an MVP or All Pro. Had he put up the numbers he did in Atlanta and never won a Super Bowl he would not be in the HOF. That I firmly believe to be a fact. Aikman is just like Terry Bradshaw. Bradshaw was not a good QB. I can arguably make the point that Steve Bartkowski was a better NFL QB than Troy Aikman and that the Cowboys still would have won those Super Bowls with him at QB. The AFC conference clearly was horrible for much of the 80s and 90s which is why the NFC won 13 straight Super Bowls at one point. The Broncos wouldn't have sniffed the SB in the 80s had they been an NFC team because they weren't that good of a team. There's a reason those SB games were so lopsided.

    John Elway was severely overrated too and I have posted about that numerous times on this board. Elway didn't become the Elway everyone likes to talk until the last 5 or 6 years of his career when Mike Shanahan took over and he had Terrell Davis to take all the pressure off him. Marino attempted far more passes per game than Aikman did and didn't have Emmitt Smith to take the pressure off him. Not even the same situation as what Aikman had. Marino attempted over 500 passes in a season 11 times in his career.  Aikman had 1 such year. If the Cowboys had Marino instead of Aikman they would have won 5 or 6 Super Bowls instead of just the 3 that they won. There's not even a comparison between the two. Marino is arguably considered the greatest QB to ever play the game. Aikman is not even in the discussion. Aikman's numbers doesn't even compare to a couple of guys he went up against on a regular basis, Steve Young and Brett Favre. I don't know why neither Simms nor Plunkett is in. Plunkett is the only QB to start and win more than 1 SB to not be in the HOF. Simms doesn't get credit for 2 SB wins because he didn't play in the 2nd Giants SB win against the Bills.

    Aikman was a career 61.5% passer who averaged only 7.0 yards per attempt. He had 165 TD passes vs. 141 interceptions. Heck 4 times in his career he had more interceptions than touchdowns. Like I said, Troy Aikman = Terry Bradshaw. Average to Good QB (at times) who benefited from being on a completely loaded team and won those Super Bowls and that's the reason he's in the NFL. Had he put up those same numbers without the Super Bowl wins on say the Falcons he would not be in the NFL.

    The only problem is that Hasselbeck turns 41 in September. We don't need another Steve DeBerg.
