  1. I guess US open tennis @4 has something to do with Pitt/Tenn but still ridiculous. UGA game on ESPNEWS
  2. I'm with you, JT looked good considering what we were wheeling out there prior to him, but I think he is pretty average. I'm excited to see Beck and maybe he is that "guy". We will see, this team should beat everyone remaining on the schedule with average QB play. Daniels/Beck it doesn't matter to me, and obviously a healthy Daniels, in year 2, may look a lot better than what we saw last year which was solid but not spectacular.
  3. I didn't notice, see, pay any attention to the Applebee's commercial but those Taco Bell debate things were horrible and cringe worthy. Just terrible.
  4. Man, there is no depth to speak of on this team. Just hope for the best, but I just don't see it. Probably going to be a long 17 game season unless A. Smith and the rest are just that good.
  5. Like others, I'm not concerned about them because I don't expect anything from them. They are probably a 6-9 win team. With that said my expectations are higher than last year with DQ and Koetter at the helm. I laughed at anyone that thought DQ would have these guys ready to play during the pandemic and of course DK was DK
  6. I don't think he is complete garbage when it comes to being a DC but was way too stubborn with his scheme and is a garbage HC. I wouldn't be surprised if Dallas's D is average/middle of the pack if they stay healthy. Their front 7 isn't bad and the LBs can be really good. I know we had a narrative here of the FS being the most important piece of the cover 3 but I always thought a little differently. The pass rush is #1 for any D. They can cover up a lot of issues and Dallas has some pieces there. Then I think the LBers are just as important, or nearly, as the FS. If healthy, theirs are really good. Look at Seattle, Carroll has let everyone walk from that D. except the 2 linebackers. Granted they are back strong at Safety now too.
  7. Flipped it over to the Field of Dreams game. I find it really neat.
  8. Thank you Ozzie. F Will Smith and the Saints of course
  9. I have to mute him most of the time. He is really terrible and clueless half the time.
  10. Just hope for the best sometimes those that look bad and in a lot of pain right away are just hyperextended like Gianni's, but it can go the other way too of course
  11. Oh well, he done most likely. This season isn't looking good at this point.
  12. We hear this every year about how Jerry has fallen in love with some prospect and will do whatever to get him. It rarely happens and won't this year either. The sports media needs something to talk about and the are always real far up the Cowboys butts so..
  13. I've never been a fan of these flex TEs/big receivers that can't block or be a true inline TE. As a DC, I'm treating you as a WR and putting a CB on you. He is going to be blanketed usually so the QB better be willing to throw into tight windows, and the TE be able to box out like TG. Guys like Ebron, Ingram, others have struggled with that, and being able to catch the ball in traffic. D. Waller didn't have that problem last year and was a nightmare. Pitts seems to be like Waller but on another level. It didn't matter who was on him last year, (Surtain)he was catching the ball. I hope Pitts is the pick if we stay at 4.
  14. Adios. Great career. I hope they take decades to find their next HOF QB. Unfortunately, Brees has been a big reason for their last 2 playoff losses. Depending on how they navigate their cap issues, they may not go away any time soon.
  15. Same. My entire fandom this year was devoted to rooting against the Saints. I knew the Falcons would be bad with Quinn and Koetter back. Obviously, I don't like Tampa but not like the Saints, Cowboys, even the Panthers. They aren't a long time rival like the Saints and old NFC west teams. I think also with the Saints they have had Brees, Peyton and others there for a while that you grow to hate. Panthers had Cam and others, I guess, though I don't dislike Cam that much. This Tampa team was a cobbled together veteran all star team, and I don't dislike Ariens either who is also fairly new to Tampa. If JohhnyBuc was still posting here constantly, then I would hate them a little more.
  16. KC has played down to their competition nearly every week this season. They have looked like a team going through the motions until the playoffs. I don't put much stock into the Falcons performance that week just like people were all excited last year when we beat a banged up uninspired 49er team. Their coaches will have watched every snap KC has taken this year multiple times by Sunday and vice versa.
  17. RIP Screech. SBTB was a favorite of my childhood. Crazy.
  18. I'm with you and couldn't care less about the uniforms these days, but it's fine if others do. Every few months for the nearly 20years I have been on this board, it seems like we get a uniform discussion thread. Just seems to me like teams that are constantly changing uniforms are the traditionally bottom of the barrel teams like Jacksonville, Tampa, us, etc. Teams with tradition and championships like the Packers Steelers, Cowboys, Bears, Raiders, Colts, Chiefs, etc, don't change or need a gimmick to sell merchandise. Sure they have tweaked them over the last 25-50 years but they largely stay the same. I don't know, I guess the uniform changes are just a reminder that we are a basement team,for the most part, for the last 55 years.
  19. Their cap situation is shakey but depending how that works out, they could be better off without him at this point. He was holding them back with his inability to drive the ball down the field anymore. T. Hill being out yesterday hurt them. I hope they descend into mediocrity, but based on their record the last 2 seasons without Brees, no guarantee of that.
  20. Tyson Campbell to the NFL as expected. Hopefully he blows up the combine and goes early. The talent is there. We need T. Stevenson to stick around and hopefully grab someone or 2 from the teleporter.
  21. Everyone gets their start somewhere but my concerns with EB are the same that others have mentioned. Andy Reid still holds that play sheet. A bit of a gimmicky offense at times. They embraced college play calling years ago when A. Smith was still there. Elite talent with a QB who's playmaking ability is through the roof and current career projectory is too. Plus they have elite speed on offense that really taxes a D. I prefer an offensive guy running a top offense under a defensive HC. Im not sure Ryan is the best fit at QB for EB, but if moving away from Ryan soon, fine. He is just a bit more unproven to me, but so were M. Shanahan, Holmgreen, Reid and other early Walsh disciples. Maybe he is S. McVay, or he could be D. Quinn, M. Smith, or Belichek guys and benefitting from the HCs system. I'll support him if he is the guy though.
