  1. GOAT- Brady vs Jordan

    While I agree with what you are saying overall, I disagree with the idea where the best team wins in the NFL and not NBA. In my opinion the random nature of a one game sample makes the lesser team far more likely to win while the seven game series (and the MLB having different SP each game) makes the NBA the most likely to have the best team win
  2. GOAT- Brady vs Jordan

    This is a really stupid question. Brady great but he is not even the best football player I have ever seen. He is simply a great player that happened to be the face of a great team/franchise. It would be similar to comparing Jeter to Jordan.
  3. Good for him. Such remarks about family members, particularly a five year old are totally uncalled for. Not only would I never go on the show again, I would avoid the station entirely as long as he was employed there.
  4. XFL (Fans Above All)

    -Three minute quarters but the clock stops after every play -Play clock is only twenty-five seconds
  5. Well, we paid Turner and KK and drafted Moton and Butler. I am not the most knowledgeable on NFL salary cap stuff and whatnot but from my understand the, assuming we think the latter two can do the job, then the best unemotional move is to let both Norwell and Star walk, get two comp picks, wait to see who is cut, and use the savings to sign players of . I would miss both, but that is the nature of salary cap football.
  6. XFL Announcement at 3

    I would be far more interested in a league that fought CFB for players. If the right people with money actually decided to go that route then it could actually be a success. Then those kids that actually wanted to be student athletes could do so while kids that lack either the ability or the interest to succeed in college could still make money for their craft without having to worry about losing their spot because they failed Western Humanities. Instead of having college coaches they could hire people with NFL experience and/or aspirations who could therefore give the players better preparation for the NFL.
  7. Yes, elections get bought and we end up hearing about it because there is evidence and people cannot keep their mouths shut. If the NFL was really buying off all of these refs every year to ensure Brady makes the Super Bowl then eventually someone would have said something. It has nothing to do with believing "everything is so perfect," or whatever other false thoughts you would like to attribute to me. It has to do with my belief that an organization that cannot even handle the commissioner's extension quietly is somehow able to successfully pull off such a wide ranging conspiracy between the league, owners, and all of their referees, for all these years without it leaking.
  8. They would be happier if it were Brady/Brees, or a rematch from last year, or a Vikings team playing at home. They would also have been happier with Pats/Steelers and anybody but the Titans making the second round. The idea that the NFL has coordinated this whole thing is laughable.
  9. That is a tough number. Our record in close games is not traditionally sustainable, as we have seen in the past few even number years. It makes sense to have a regression. Our track record says so also. The 8.5 that I have seen seems like a good under bet if I take all emotion out of it. Although I would not bet that either as there have to be better ones out there. That being said, I would still take the Over here as at this point in time 7-9 wins seems the most likely so I would feel good that I would not lose the bet.
  10. Are we to believe that the NFL wanted Nick Foles in the Super Bowl?
  11. I could live to be 1,000 and would still never experience more joy from sports than the ‘04 Red Sox run from Game 4 of the ALCS to winning the WS. I could make a top 100 moments from that eleven day period alone. Even the off days felt like some surreal dream. Jamie McMurray winning the Daytona 500 in 2010 has a pretty solid lock on second place. Those two were always on another plane from the rest, but the last five year’s have been pretty good to me for individual moments... The rest of the top tier of best individual moments: 2013 - Arjen Robben’s goal in Champion’s League Final 2014 - Mario Götze’s goal in World Cup Final 2015 - American Pharoah wins Triple Crown 2017 - Luke Maye’s shot Others receiving votes Red Sox: obviously both the other two WS titles are there, but nothing could top ‘04. My best in person game for any sport was an insane back and forth Sox game in ‘05 against Tampa Bay. I was physically and emotionally exhausted afterwards Tar Heels: ‘05 was my favorite title overall because it really was my first (I was barely eleven in ‘93) and ‘09 was my favorite team, but last year was my favorite tournament run Hornets: Alonzo Mourning’s shot; ‘02 First Round Game 4 (attended) to put away the Magic Panthers: ‘03 game @Tampa (which I attended) and of course X-Clown are the top two Panther moments. I think the thing that differentiates Luke Maye from X-Clown is that one led to a championship Tar Heels football: easily Gio Bernard’s punt return against NC State Other: any of Federer’s Grand Slams but especially the ‘09 Wimbledon and last year’s Aussie
  12. Your ideal 2018 Super Bowl

    I leaning towards laying the points with the Vikings and taking the points with Jacksonville. If I go that route then that is where my rooting interest lies.
  13. Once the Panthers have no stakes I lose all ability to care how well other teams do or do not do (unless it is the Bucs because living here when they are good is annoying). Normally I would root for the happiness of friends but I have no close friends that are fans of the Vikings, Jaguars, or Eagles fans and while I have Patriots friends, they are not what I would call long suffering. Therefore I will root for whatever I decide to lay money on.

    I wonder if the Huddle can count as our “faith based” community. We do after all get those four services a month for at least four months out of the year.
  15. This is the best I have felt about this team since the NFCCG two years ago.
  16. B- Above average and trending in the right direction
  17. I think that Saints will win the SB and yet for a brief, drunkin’ moment I actually thought we might make the next round. Oh well, I had a reason to drink and hit my Over for a nice cash. Most fun I have had with football since the NFCCG, I will take it.
  18. I'd fire Gano right now

    Gano’s miss sucked but I think Payton is much more likely to punt if the lead is only two at the end.
  19. Ron Extended

    I suppose it is possible, but seems like a really silly way to do a sale, especially one of this magnitude. I would bet against it.
  20. Ron Extended

    Are you suggesting the new owner is already decided?
  21. Ron Extended

    This should have been left to new ownership in my opinion.
  22. I do not like their playoff either, but they have had that/worse throughout their history. The point remain. CFB #s are down. Pro Football #s are down. People are watching less football altogether. Players kneeling is a red herring.
