    ACAB is the only rhyme scheme

    Yeah, no... I'm pretty sure some of the guys I know that pretty much ran the punk scene in NC probably beat the crap out of those "pretty decent guys" if they ever showed up at one of their shows. In fact, I've heard stories of them actively seeking out skinheads at shows and letting them have it. TBQH those types, nowadays anyway, usually show up looking for trouble. Same with MAGA hat wearers.

    The Sinner

    I could see a lot of your points, too. I think the lighting was intentional. The show overall has some pretty dark undertones, and I therefore felt a lot of what you were talking about here was on purpose. That's what gives me the TD vibes, I think, is the atmosphere/feeling of a lot of the shots. I agree, too, about a lot of the supporting cast, but I'll chalk it up to being a first season and trying to pack/fluff more into the story. 8 episodes isn't a lot, especially when the two biggest characters need more than a little exposition. Season two starts this week, although I may wait and binge it. I have high hopes, though, as I am a big fan of Carrie Coon. It also looks like Pullman's character will be the lone holdover.
  5. I'll be the contrarian and say that I think I liked this one a little more than the first. I'd agree that, initially at least, my first thought was that the autotune/talkbox effect was a little overdone. But then, I think it plays really well with the odd beat. It's still very commercial, which isn't necessarily a bad thing since that seems like that's what he's catering to/shooting for right now. I know it is kind of a one-off track in that, structurally, it isn't necessarily a stand alone song. It's more of an interlude tbqh, but I I thought it was well done overall. He's definitely talented, and if he hooks up with the right crew around him (producers, promoters, etc.) he could gain some notoriety. Thanks for sharing!

    The Sinner

    I mean, maybe it is just too fresh in my mind or I'm overstating it. It is only 8 episodes after all, but it really felt like I was watching True Detective at certain moments. Jessica Biel did a great job both running the show and starring in it. Bill Pullman did a great job. It was just really really good. We binged it, like 4 episodes back to back in two days, and were left wanting more. The previews for season 2 look great. I hope you all like it as much as I did. So far, it is up there with Breaking Bad, GoT, and True Detective for me at times.

    The Sinner

    Seriously? I hadn't heard that! I do feel like they didn't really have an end in sight, though, so I can see why. Oh well. The Sinner, so far (8 episodes) is up there already with my top shows of all time tbqh. I know it is still early, but if they keep it up this could rival some of the best. It was a very pleasant surprise, to say the least.
  8. I just found out Gilbert actually has a Super Bowl ring that he earned as a part of the Patriots' PS in XLIX season. Let's get him another one!

  13. I liked what I saw from Gilbert. His mechanics remind me somewhat of Favre and Delhomme, but he also had some patience and good accuracy. I say roll with him.

    AFI's Top 100 Movies of All Time

    This list is garbage and trying way too hard to pay homage to older films. I've only seen 31 of the ones on this list, but I guarantee I can come up with at least 40 more movies that should be included in the top 100.
  15. Make your guesses at how our final roster(s) turn out here. I used the roster manager at Spotrac and came up with the team below. By their values, and with the salary adjustments I made for PS players, this gives us cap room of around $1.9 Million. Offense (24): QB: Cam Gilbert I still like Gilbert as the backup, but we might end up snagging someone from cuts. RB: Anderson McCaffrey Barner The CAP/Barner battle will be one to watch. Someone suggested trading CAP in another thread, and I have to admit he is one of the more likely tradeable players on our team. Barner, IIRC, brings more to the return game, so I give him the nod. FB: Armah He'll be a better player in this system, and used a lot more in different sets (including TE.) At least, I hope. WR: Funchess Smith Moore Wright Samuel Byrd Only one we're missing here is Bersin, ha. But yeah, I think all 6 of these will make the 53 man roster, but Byrd, Samuel, or Wright sit each week. TE: Olsen Thomas FA Signee Looking at our roster, this may trump safety as far as depth need. I think we'll snag someone here post cuts for sure, IF we don't trade for someone or bring them in during camp. T: Kalil Williams Moton Can any of them play LT? Kalil will hold it down another year, but I like some of the younger guys we've got hanging around, at least on paper. G: Turner Van Roten Sirles Silatolu LG will be another TC battle to watch. It could end up being someone not listed on this G list (read Larsen or Moton,) but I'll give the edge to Van Roten. C: Kalil Larsen Maybe the best C and backup C combo in the league? Defense (26): DE: Pep Addison Horton Hall Obada Cox Haynes We're pretty set here IMHO. I think Hall and Obada will surprise. DT: Short Poe Butler Love Stacked. Try to run at this rotation. I dare you. LB: Kuechly Davis Thompson Mayo Norris Carter Smith I like both rookies to make the 53 man roster. It pushes Jacobs out, though. CB: Cockrell Bradberry Gunter Jackson Seymour I think Captain is gone, despite the hit. I don't know that he ever really got out of the doghouse from anything I've read, and tbqh he played like hot garbage. Bradberry might be in danger, tbqh. I think we're pretty good here, however. S: Adams Searcy Gaulden Colin Jones not making the cut makes this a pretty thin unit, and I expect we've got Boston or someone on speed dial. As long as Adams and Searcy don't have to play catch up and can keep the action in front of them, I think we'll be okay. As far as Gaulden goes, I'll keep my fingers crossed. Special Teams (3): Gano Palardy Jansen No questions here. For the PS players, I dropped all their salaries to $150,000 or so. It could end up being a little more or a little less on a case-by-case basis. The only real surprise here is Elder, I suppose. I think that if we cut him and re-sign him to the PS he gets a new contract, which will give us a few more dollars in space. He, Cox, and Southward, I did set salary values of $250,000 for. Practice Squad: QB - Heinicke WR - Howard TE - Baylis T - Eatmon G - Bosch DT - Norton DT - Sprinkle CB – Elder CB – Southward S – Cox

    Your most hated NFL team?

    Saints because they always take cheap shots and play dirty. Seahawks because I abhor Russel Wilson now and all their fans are bandwagon. Giants because of OBJ and GRRM. Other than that, most of my hate is reserved for specific players on opposing teams.

    Game of Thrones - Season 8

  19. lol I found this with my Google-Fu: Page 9: Moorgan Narrator ALL-PRO 6,402 5,374 posts Location537 Paper Street Report post Posted September 1, 2017 So, it sounds like, last year at least, when we cut him, another team could have signed him. We could bring him back, but only on the PS as he was "assigned" to us by the NFL and we didn't acquire him through FA. From everything I have read, it still seems to me that he can be on our 53 man roster now, or be cut again and see if anyone else wants him, and then, if not, come back to our PS again as an exempt 11th PS player. Confusing as hell, but I think this is all correct. That said, I still think we take at least 6 DEs, but maybe even 7.
