#3266316 Torrey Smith's Future

Sign everyone for vet minimum!  




#3266288 Torrey Smith's Future

Posted by Zaximus on Today, 03:05 PM

I think we'll make a real push but am not sure if we'll have the courage to get it done.

 

I worry about this.  Our FO probably thinks extending Olsen was all that was needed.  This IS the team that still has Shula as its OC.....




#3264123 NFL Free Agent News

Posted by Zaximus on Yesterday, 01:37 PM

Marshall might be a kittle over the hill folks. If were gunna spend that much money i want it to be someone else.

 

He's not.  He's only 30 and for a one year rental, not bad.  His game isn't really built on speed anyway.  

 

That being said, I'd like a speed guy still.  Torrey Smith would still be nice.  There is a ton of WR's out there now, so the market should be decent.  I still wouldn't be mad at getting someone like Marshall.

 

Regardless, we should still draft a WR in the 1st/2nd to compliment the upgrade we sign (and we better sign one).  




#3262682 Top 5 TV shows

Posted by Zaximus on 04 March 2015 - 02:49 PM

Ahhh forgot The Leftovers. I need that to come back already...and Silicon Valley 

 

 

I think Silicon Valley comes out the SAME night Game of Thrones returns.

 

 

Oh man...




#3261139 Vince Gilligan's other new show: Battle Creek

It's hard to jump on board with a network tv show nowadays, but I'll keep an eye on it.




#3261114 Top 5 TV shows

Posted by Zaximus on 03 March 2015 - 02:10 PM

Very hard list, considering I bet I probably watch more TV than anyone here (trust me, NOT a brag lol).

 

EVER:

 

Dramas

 

1. The Wire

2. The Shield

3. Breaking Bad

4. Sopranos

5. The X-Files

 

Comedies:

 

1. M*A*S*H* (easily, becasue of the mix of comedy and drama in a rough situation, glad my father got me to watch this)

2. Seinfeld

3. Always Sunny in Philadelphia (I know it's an odd type of comedy, a crude Seinfeld, but 10 seasons going and still very solid)

4. Parks & Rec (so much heart in a comedy, where the Office faltered later on, Parks kept getting better, sadly not enough viewers)

5. Chappelle's Show (not sure this fits here since it's sketch, but it broke some boundaries while being hilarious)

 

Current:

 

Drama

 

1. Game of Thrones

2. House of Cards

3. Mad Men (ending soon, close to the top of  best shows of all time, great acting, hope the final season hits the mark)

4. Hannibal (more people should watch this, amazing show, if you like wierdness)

5. Rectify (don't let this show fall through the cracks, it is great, amazing acting, it's on Sundance channel and maybe first season on netflix)

 

 

Comedy

 

1. Silicon Valley (hilarious first season on HBO)

2. Always Sunny

3. Louie (this may end up in best all time comedy though, but it's a mix of both, a dramedy)

4. Big Bang Theory (still great laughs but getting repetitve without enough character building)

5. Brooklyn 99 (surprisingly really good, with heart, like Parks & Rec)

 

 

It's hard to pick and I'm sure I forgot some.  It is the golden age of TV right now.  I get more excited for TV most of the time than movies now.

 




#3261097 Report: Andre Johnson will be released if Texans can’t find trade partner

Posted by Zaximus on 03 March 2015 - 01:55 PM

It's possible his agent looks at our team and realizes we're a couple playmakers away from a legit team since the defense is for real.   Even with Shula calling plays (gasp) we can do some damage.  He'll probably have a larger role here too as a #1, because KB is not #1 material just yet.  

 

Sign him, draft a WR in the 1st/2nd still, sign Ginn or Jacoby and go in with a core of AJ/KB/draft pick/Philly/Ginn or Jones.  Guess we're stuck with Cotchery as well.

 

 




#3260817 Gandhi was kind of a dick

Posted by Zaximus on 03 March 2015 - 11:05 AM

I'm not surprised, he is ALWAYS the first to drop nukes in the Civilization games.  Hypocrite!

 

 




#3256693 That's my backup Center!

Posted by Zaximus on 27 February 2015 - 02:15 PM

I hated Biz when we drafted him. I hated him most of his career (as a basketball player). But you see signs of hope this year. I want to see more.

 

 

The kid is so young, it's hard to remember sometimes how young.  He hasn't even been playing basketball for long.  But he works so hard, and he NEVER takes games off out there.  He has heart, he just has to put it together.  He's already the best or top-3 rim protectors and can rebound well.  If he can ever keep up that and drop  10 points or so a game he could be a starting center.  He's not taking anything for granted being the NBA.  




#3256363 Why Multinational Companies get massive tax breaks

Posted by Zaximus on 27 February 2015 - 10:39 AM

That not how it works. It's honestly very simple. They will make their margins no matter what.

 

It's very simple, yes.  They increase prices, they pay more taxes.  They'll get to the point of trying to make the price so high, Americans jut won't pay for their goods.  Some other company will come in and fill that roll.  So instead of making their $7b they make far less than just paying the taxes they should be.    That's the only way this works, you have to play hard ball.  




#3256321 Time for a Re-vote

Posted by Zaximus on 27 February 2015 - 10:07 AM

TheRed is pretty much on point.  Clifford isn't bad and probably will get better.  But it is a combined effort of him, the FO, and the players that are problem.  Clifford has "game-time coaching" issues with things like rotations.  His blind loyalty to vets over young guys that can light a fire in a game is a problem.  How many time has Hairston came in, heated up, and was taken out immediately?  I've seen him come in, nail a three and play some good defense, and get pulled out for someone like Neal or something.   I've seen him put Maxiel in over Biz (early season).  He does a lot of things that makes no sense.  His uncanny ability to lose 4th quarter leads is troubling.

 

Did the FO fail at getting good wings and overpay Marvin Williams?  Totally.  Are the players underperforming?  For sure.  Lance is a disaster and Al has reverted to black hole status.  

 

The problem is this city is OK with mediocrity.  Look at the Panthers last two coaches, Fox/Rivera.  Clear evidence.  Getting outcoached is getting really old in this city.

Posted by Zaximus on 27 February 2015 - 08:33 AM

This really rings true.  I'm also OK paying taxes so people with children can send them to public schools, yet I have none of my own right now.   People are so quick to point out socialism as being terrible, but this country needs a balance of socialism and capitalism, but we're quickly moving too far into capitalism.  

 

I truly believing in investing in the youth and the people of our country, which means more affordable education and training for trades.   We need to invest more into science and discovery.  It needs to be cool again for someone to be a scientist instead of only being successful if you get rich.   I think we need to invest more on healthy living, physical and mental.   I support the fact that people can grow a business and prop themselves up, but I also want to take better care of our own.

Careful with the I word. The robots on both sides get angry and defensive.

 

Only because you are hardly independant and come to the defense of tons of right wing ideas.  Then use the "I'm independant" as a cop-out in arguements.

 

Just saying.

 

Also your posting style is terrible as well.   But at least you are consistant even though your posts give everyone headaches.




#3254995 Ted Ginn leaning towards going home to Cleveland

Posted by Zaximus on 26 February 2015 - 09:17 AM

Yeah obviously he doesn't care about being on a winning team or being an actual WR.

 

This is bad news, because if we don't land him or Jacoby we're back to the worse ST in the league.  And before someone says "just draft someone" that is far from a proven science, if Joe Adams, Ryne Robinson, etc have proven.

Because one network's viewers get information from chain letters, facebook shares,  and photoshops of the President.
