  1. The older games should be all (or mostly) contained on the game discs themselves, you most likely just won't be able to access any bonus songs that might've been DLC (downloadable content). The only thing I'm not sure about (especially the "newer" games that were on PS3/360) is if there were any title updates that would need to be downloaded to play, however that was probably only required to play online and you should still be able to play offline. Thinking about Guitar Hero brings me back to my middle and high school days when it was at its peak. I was always terrible at the game and my friends would get a kick out of watching me try to play songs on medium (I could do easy, but that 4th button that starts getting thrown in on medium would throw me off entirely, LOL). But once Rock Band came out, I'd trash them on expert drums. 😂 Was definitely a fun game though.
  2. Yeah? Well I still teabagged your mom last night then I stole one of your Capri Suns from the fridge before I left. 😋
  3. Likewise and indeed, friend. Having a small generator did help some to run the refrigerator, other small appliances like fans, and charge phones and the like, but absolutely taxing like you stated. And much appreciated, Steve! It's getting there one step at a time but still a pretty long road ahead. Just have to keep trudging forward.
  4. Much appreciated, Steve and everyone for the well wishes. 💗 Ida was certainly one ruthless *****. The area I'm from (about an hour and a half southwest of New Orleans) was hit devastatingly hard since the eye passed right by (even though we were on the west side of the storm). Heard reports by word of mouth that there were some areas that wind gauges were clocking winds in excess of 200+ mph and had the hurricane classification system allowed for it, it could've qualified as a Category 6 hurricane. I believe it as well because lots of homes and camps here have severe roof damage (or no roofs at all) and some even had flood damage. I'd never seen this much wind damage from a storm with my own eyes before. There were some camps ripped from their pilings and thrown off them like toys. I say only "some" homes had flood damage because in this area to build a new structure it has to be built on pilings above a certain height depending on the building code at the time it's built. At the time my childhood home was built, that code was at 12 feet and our house was put at 12.5' since the shortest piling we had was 12.5', but that was ~30 years ago. Now I think the building code is 15' or 16'. So older homes that were built when the building code was below 7-8' all got water in them because the flood water in that area was at least 7-8' with waves cresting as high as 12'+ because one door of the house had mud in it. But I'm doing good. We just got power back here on Friday after 27 days; still no water oddly enough since there was massive main breaks in a multitude of spots but it's getting closer to coming on because people we know 6-7 miles up the road got water a day or two ago. Still no cable/internet though and likely won't be for another week or two. We're hanging in there though! Just figured to drop in and see what was going on here.
  5. I LOL'ed. Nah, that's something we've done for the better part of a decade now. 2012 2017 2018 2019 2014-2016 they didn't need the refreshment of snoballs since camp was held at The Greenbrier up in West Virginia. I think he was on the right side of it before, now he's on the wrong side of it... Meh, he called the plays for the Legion of Boom but the guy that was actually coaching them is in our building now. Wholeheartedly agree. One reason I was happy to see our rivalry was finally getting a little bit more national exposure like it deserves with the Thanksgiving games the last few years. 19-9 record, 749/1098 (68.2%), 8468 yds (7.7 YPA), 53 TD, 26 INT, 97.29 QB rating But like y'all defense, it didn't help that our defense was utter trash too, save for a few seasons (2013, 2017-pres). 😂
  6. I've been around, friend. I just don't feel the need to necro-bump threads for attention and back pats. I usually drop in once a day or so, respond to my PM's and notifications and then go along my merry way. Hope you and yours are well.
  7. Man, I wish we got half the breaks y’all think we get to be honest. LOL. There’s undoubtedly a penalty disparity in our games, however it’s trending in the opposite direction you think. I posted this arguing with a Panthers fan earlier... We’ve been flagged the 8th most in the league (102 penalties) for the 2nd most penalty yards (1,025 yards; only behind the Jaguars) while our opponents have been flagged the fewest in the league (73 penalties) for the fewest penalty yards (567 yards). If anyone is being helped along the way it’s Brady. Buccaneers opponents have been flagged the 10th most (97 penalties) for the most yardage (1,040 yards) in the league. I’ll be the first to admit when we get gifted a call but until then the proof is in the pudding, we’re playing 11 vs. 18 nearly every play.
  8. Settled! And LOLOL Ironically Trestman worked as a consultant for Payton in 2007. So they fire Trestman after the 2014 season and immediately bring in another Payton guy at GM.
  9. That we have, but those I heavily attribute to the combination of Ireland, Payton, and Loomis. The ones before make me want to cry, like our 2014 draft (outside of Cooks), our 2012 draft (outside of Hicks), or our 2011 draft (outside of Jordan and Ingram).
  10. Haha, actually was by 5 sacks if we’re going by the official number of 29. Had to look it up see what the monetary value was, LOL. But you got it! This is the right one, correct? God**** you, Taysom! Dude starts 4 games at QB and gets sacked 13 times because he has 0 pocket awareness. I can agree with that. Loomis struck gold on his coach search, unlike Pace. Now the question would be if Fontenot can.
  11. Haha, greetings, friend! Just seeing this quote now after replying to you in the other thread. And it’s much appreciated, all has been decent here, hope likewise on your end.
  12. Can’t take Fontenot and our top scout. One or the other, champ. Our drafts pre-2016 are definitely a doozy. ****in’ dead! You haven’t looked at our 2015 draft recently, have you? It’s not the barometer of success I’d be trying to prop Fontenot on... 4 of the 9 played 2 seasons or less (2 of which never played a down in the NFL), 1 never made it to a second contract, 1 bounced around between 3 teams and likely is finished after this year, and only 3 of them are still in the league. Peat and Williams are both on our roster and Davison is on y’all’s. Yeah, I’m still salty about that...
  13. I’m not keeping up with you because I’m 2 steps ahead of you. 😜 Hahaha, fair enough. And likewise, friend. Hopefully 2021 is going a bit better than 2020 for y’all. They were, but only because the Cardinals absolutely **** the bed, LOL. Defense holds the Rams to 18 points and the offense can only muster 7 points. I mean we’ll probably use them to trade up anyway. No need to cope, I’m just laying out the facts. You can accept them or ignore them as you see fit, but thems still the facts. 😋
  14. Debatable. Their defense hasn’t been bad in his 6 years, but they were equally as good if not better the 6 years prior to his hiring, the offense is way worse. They had a winning record (49-47) in the 6 years pre-Pace along with two 10+ win seasons, a playoff win and a NFC Championship game appearance. Agree on Trubisky and Nagy, but those are two massive strikes worth firing him right now for.
  15. The Bears thought they hired our “best personnel guy” too when they hired Ryan Pace from us and look how that’s going for them: 1 winning season out of 6 42-54 record 2 playoff appearances 0 playoff wins scoring offenses ranked 23rd, 28th, 29th, 9th, 29th, 22nd yardage offenses ranked 21st, 15th, 30th, 21st, 29th, 26th likely about to hire his 3rd head coach if he doesn’t get canned himself Pace likely packing up his office as we speak. LOL. Speaking of Ryan Pace, here’s an article y’all might be interested in... ESPN: Bears hire Ryan Pace as GM Hmm, that sounds VERY familiar... 🤔
  16. He’s about to be free in a few days if y’all looking for his services. Just a reminder that our last big front office “loss” traded up one spot from #3 overall to #2 overall only to pass on Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson and draft Mitchell Trubisky.
  17. He’s a really good LB coach, DC not so much. Also speaking of Tomsula, y’all remember the time he farted in the middle of a press conference and pretended like nothing happened?
  18. Hahah, apologies I'm a bit late on seeing this, but I think you were able to get your answer in the other thread. But yeah, as other have said, Fontenot gets a slight input in drafting (like Ireland gets slight input in free agent acquisitions). I'd certainly rather keep him onboard considering he's been groomed in our system for the last decade and change. While it's not going to win the division immediately winning those two games, it's going to put your team at a disadvantage to owning that tiebreaker if you don't end up with more wins at the end of the season, which is exactly what happened to the Buccaneers this season. They fell to us in Week 1 and spent the rest of the year chasing and hoping for us to slip up as their division championship hopes slowly deteriorated. And possibly so, but once you detach Carmichael (and the playbook) from Payton, you also detach Payton's creativity from implementing new play calls and wrinkles. Carmichael can't show Payton anything new about Payton's playbook that he hasn't seen before. It's the same reason why Payton's former offensive assistants that have gone on to head coaching gigs haven't been able to best him, they're using a stripped down version of his playbook. Furthermore about Carmichael and potential head coaching opportunities, I remember seeing it mentioned somewhere here about how when Payton was suspended in 2012 that Carmichael called the plays and our offense finished 2nd in yards and 3rd in scoring which is correct. However speaking about that 2012 season, something that always fails to be mentioned when Carmichael's name is being mentioned for head coaching vacancies is the fact that Carmichael wasn't even Payton's 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd choice at filling in as interim head coach when he was suspended. Think about that for a moment. Payton's original plan was to turn the reins over to Parcells, who had been out of coaching for 5 years and was about to be eligible to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on his 1st ballot. However taking the interim gig would result in resetting the 5-year clock before he'd be eligible again. Payton's 2nd choice was assistant HC/LB coach, Joe Vitt, who also had his own 6-game suspension to serve so someone else was needed to be in charge until late-October. Payton's 3rd choice was OL coach, Aaron Kromer, who would pilot the team for the first 6 games until Vitt returned. Now it could be argued that Carmichael was only in our organization for 6 years at that point, however he'd had been in the NFL in some fashion or another for 12 seasons since 2000 so it's not like he wasn't qualified or didn't have any skins on the wall. Definitely makes you wonder... Interesting, but that's alright, we'll keep him in-house and keep crushing free agency. He is indeed a Parcells disciple, however if Parcells was the architect of the system Payton has been running the last 14 years, we wouldn't have blown out Parcells 42-17 in 2006. Parcells' system essentially disregards the usage of fullbacks, which Payton heavily employs and resulted in Mike Karney scoring 3 TD's against the Cowboys defense in the aforementioned game because Payton knew Parcells wouldn't bother having a defender account for Karney. Payton and Parcells' systems do share some similarities and concepts but make no mistake, Payton is a savant.
  19. So let me get this straight, you want to try and play against Payton twice a year with a playbook that he’s the architect of?
  20. 😛 Very welcome. You know you’re a masochist for it... 😏
  21. Let’s just rename Atlanta to New Orleans East and slap some fleur-de-lis on y’all helmets and call it a day. Pro scouting only Indeed, but do y’all really want to give us extra 3rd round picks with how we’ve been crushing that round as of late? 😉 We already have a free 3rd coming this year from the Panthers signing Bridgewater to a $20M/year deal last season.
