  1. Another swing and a miss, @Bravesfan It even says in the article you linked...
  2. I really do like Russell Wilson, he’s a really good player (and person) and I think he’d do some serious damage behind a competent OL. I can agree to an extent that he does hold the ball a bit too long but I don’t think it’s the result of a bad trait; I think it’s more out of necessity due to how quick his OL in beaten and he starts taking on pressure from somewhere. If he’d just chuck the ball away every snap when he starts taking heat, they’d literally have no offense. So he has to use his mobility to generate at least some offense and sometimes he gets rundown before he can get out the pocket.
  3. It’s wild the number of sacks they’ve given up since the Unger trade. 2015: 46 sacks 2016: 41 sacks 2017: 43 sacks 2018: 51 sacks That’s a death warrant, Russell Wilson must have 9 lives or something.
  4. While Justin Britt is a good center, that’s revisionist history if I’ve ever seen it. Britt played poorly at RT in the 2015 preseason that he was moved to guard. When Unger went down with injuries in 2014, he was replaced with Patrick Lewis and they held a perfect 4-0 record with him starting. After Unger was traded, he wasn’t named the starting center, and the job went to Drew Nowak at the start of the 2015 season. Nowak was waived by the Seahawks in December 2015 and put on the practice squad before getting waived again, then signing with the Chiefs where he was waived by the Chiefs in final cut downs of 2016. Lewis regained the starting job in 2015 and played well but was waived in August 2016 during final cut downs, played for the Bills in 2016, then joined the AAF which folded 3 months later, and was drafted into the XFL. While they may have a good center now, that wasn’t the plan when they traded Unger. If it was, they wouldn’t be on their 3rd center since then. Nailed it. Gotcha, thought you were talking about their 2014 OL.
  5. That 2014 Seahawks OL was 1st in the NFL in rushing yards, rushing TD’s, and YPC. They gave up some sacks, but to say they were the worst OL in the league despite literally being the best run blocking OL I’m multiple categories is flat out inaccurate.
  6. As it does with us. But I will gladly accept a 70 burger if it’s on the table!
  7. Can y’all wait until after Thanksgiving to fire Quinn? I’m not a fan of playing teams that just fired their HC, they tend to play more inspired.
  8. I'm sure all 14 of their fans will be ecstatic.
  9. You should buy them then. Buy them all.
  10. Y’all could probably use him right now, bad thumb and all.
  11. So uhh... how ‘bout them Braves?
  12. They're pretty good, they only do chicken fingers/tenders though so it's not like most conventional chicken joints. While they may be a one-trick pony, they're pretty dang good at that one trick. Outside of the chicken, the sauce and their toast are what have people coming back the most. Never heard of Joella's though, might check it out if it ever comes this way.
  13. I bet it was good too. Love me some Raising Cane's. Hope he gets an extra toast instead of 'slaw. No, but it was Saints fried chicken considering they're a large corporate sponsor and the "Official Chicken of the New Orleans Saints"... New Orleans Saints and Raising Cane's proudly introduce the Junior Gumbo Mascot Program Y'all trading us Takk, you heard it here first.
  14. Ah **** it, you beat me! Those are my two favorites.
  15. To be fair though, I think the Quinn/Koetter/Morris/Mularkey combined record is weighed down by the absolute dumpster fire that’s been blazing in Tampa Bay for the last decade and a half thanks to the Glazers. However it’s certainly an interesting stat to pull. That got me thinking about our staff that has a slew of HC as well. Sean Payton: 122-75 record Dennis Allen: 8-28 record Mike Nolan: 18-37 record Dan Campbell: 5-7 record (interim) Combined: 153-147 I’m actually surprised that ours have a combined winning record with how disasterous Allen and Nolan’s stints were in the Bay Area. Campbell somehow produced slightly with a mediocre unit in Miami after Philbin was canned but that’s about it outside of Payton.
  16. Only if there’s three plane crashes before Week 17.
  17. This is America, no one cares about soccer here unless it’s the USWNT. And even then, people only care (or pretend to care) once every four years when the World Cup rolls around.
  18. And I’ll enjoy it when another Atlanta sports team chokes another championship away, which is mathematically more likely to happen. Now let’s talk about the Falcons’ last 5 playoff exits: 2010: #1 seed, go 1-and-done at home by getting blown out 48-21 by a Wild Card team 2011: 1-and-done again after scoring only 2 points 2012: #1 seed, finally win a playoff game, then Harry Douglas trips over his own shoelaces on the potential winning TD and the offense chokes the NFC Championship away 2016: most epic collapse in NFL history 2017: win one, then lay an egg in Philadelphia by only scoring 10 points How about the Braves? 8 straight playoff appearances without winning a playoff series last playoff series win in 2001 How about the Hawks? bounced out the playoffs in the 1st round 5 times in the last 10 playoff appearances swept in 3 out of the 5 seasons they made it out the 1st round and to the Semi-Finals, one year they won 2 games before getting bounced swept in the Easter Conference Finals in the one year they made it out the Semis How about the Thrashers? 3 winning seasons out of 11 years 1 playoff appearance left Atlanta and moved to Winnipeg... WINNIPEG I told you, you don’t want to play this game with me, dude.
  19. That’s all you got, kid? LMAO, stick to baseball and soccer. You won’t last out here.
  20. Not if they call the game consistently across the board.
  21. Y’all lucky we don’t play y’all until after the bye because we’d still sweep y’all with Bridgewater.
