#2987048 A bad week for our NFC South rivals

Posted by The_Mango55 on 28 September 2014 - 11:58 PM

No longer sure we'll beat the Vikes. If we don't get our poo together, we're looking at a long season


Pshh, who cares if we beat the vikes. As long as we beat the rest of the NFC South I don't care if we go in at 6-10.

#2966385 Jimmy Fallon - SNF "Superlatives"

Posted by The_Mango55 on 21 September 2014 - 12:04 AM

Let's not beat around the bush Fallon was playing off the stereotype that black men with dreads coming from the Caribbean are drug smugglers. It's a common stereotype, you might not find it funny but that's what it is.


I remember watching Fallon when he first got his late night show after Conan went to 11:30. It was an absolute train wreck. He had no stage presence. He was nervous with no charisma. Absolute embarrassment. But I love The Roots so I would watch it from time to time and he got really good. It was cool to see someone start something unfamiliar and get really good at it over time. His comedy isn't for everyone but his target audience loves him. 


Has more to do with the huge smile and half open eyes than race. No doubt the dreads helped too, but do you think he wouldn't have made the same joke if he were white?


Everyone is a trainwreck when they first start, that's the nature of the business, but he's really hit his stride and his taped bits are up there with the best that Conan has ever done (his only competition for taped bits), plus his show just exudes an aura of fun that you can feel coming off of the guests.

The Falcons are playing Madden on Rookie.

My biggest problem with the game threads are the dozens of calls for Shula's head every time there's an incomplete pass or a run play that gets less than 2 yards.


I'm not a big fan of Shula, but jeez give it a rest. Just because a play doesn't work doesn't mean it's proof of gross incompetence.

One reporter said "In some ways your arm looked stronger" and Cam was like "Really?" and you could see him flexing a little bit haha.

#2816178 The Redskins Commercial the NFL does not want us to see

Posted by The_Mango55 on 10 June 2014 - 11:24 PM

The Washington name is offensive and the Cleveland logo is offensive. But those are the only Native American themed teams I think are in dire need of fixing. Also while I don't think it's super offensive I think it's a little odd to name your team after an entire race of people. The Braves is a pretty good name because it's specifically referring to the warriors of a certain culture, no different than naming a team the Knights, Vikings or Samurai.


Also since threads always seem to go this way, I'm not trying to claim that people don't have the right to be offended however much they want by whatever they want, but that doesn't mean people who are offended should always get their way.

#2795136 OLine, Cam holding the ball too long, or bad play calling?

Posted by The_Mango55 on 20 May 2014 - 11:31 PM

A little bit of everything.


As people have mentioned, O-line and WR contribute.


Also Cam holds the ball "too long" pretty often because many times when he holds on to the ball he makes borderline magical escapes for a first down that no QB has any right to make. But obviously he can't always make that escape and gets taken down.  IMO that's a good trade off.

I know this sounds so white-trashy, but a few years ago, I LOVED wal-mart deli's hot wings. That sauce was just banging. But, then one time I got some that had been left under the lamp too long and I never wanted them again. They were dirt cheap for a pound too.


Wal-mart does have pretty good wings. They aren't wing-place good but they are better (and cheaper) than fast food wings.


But it's true you have to ask how long they hve been under the lamp. If they are there too long they get tough and gross. Their Jalapeno poppers are also pretty good.

#2720101 Desean Jackson released *update* Rivera interested *UPDATE X2* Rivera interes...

Posted by The_Mango55 on 28 March 2014 - 04:57 PM

I'm sure we are interested in having Jackson play here.


I'm sure we are not interested in paying 8-10 million a year for him to play here.

Guys, guys, it's a business.

And as you know, the best businesses are the ones where the employees are unhappy and hate the boss, the customers have no idea what the leadership is thinking, and the best and most tenured employees are fired for basically no reason.

#2698030 Dave Gettleman contract?

Posted by The_Mango55 on 15 March 2014 - 02:19 PM

GM and Coach contracts should be part of the salary cap.


That would give them more credibility when they talk about how it's just a business and/or ask players to take a pay cut.
