#3323724 NFL.com: top 5 rookie QB seasons...guess who's missing?

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 16 April 2015 - 04:33 PM

I mean, at the time, people were widely calling Cam's rookie season arguably the greatest of all time.

 

Of course, it gets diminished because of Dalton, Luck, Wilson, and Tannehill, as well as Cam's 'lack of progress'.

 

No big deal though. If Cam can solidify himself amongst the elite within the next few years, then his rookie season will be far and wide regarded as one of, if not the best of all time. It was the start of a new era of young, mobile QBs.

 

He'll be regarded as a revolutionist and be a first ballot Hall of Famer if he can enter the realm of and persist as an elite QB.




#3320416 Official Netflix Thread

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 13 April 2015 - 01:11 PM

Movies wise, City of God is one of the greatest of the 21st century, and I see that it's on Netflix now. A must watch for everyone.

 

Aside from City of God, The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete is a fantastic movie and Snow On Tha Bluff is a hyper-realistic gangster flick that is not for everyone, but very eye opening to what that street life is really like.

 

All very good urban social commentaries with intriguing geopolitical messages.

#3319931 Greg Cosell: Todd Gurley "arguably the #1 prospect in this draft"

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 12 April 2015 - 09:26 PM

All this says is since 2007, the talent level hasn't been there to justify taking a RB in the first (not even taking into account those RBs drafted in later years that if re-drafted are surefire firsts: McCoy, Murray, etc.)

 

That's not the case in this draft.

 

You don't think that those 15 front offices thought the same thing? They wouldn't have touched those RBs with a 20 foot pole if they had any doubts in them. That's why nobody drafts backs high anymore. The proof is in the pudding. RBs aren't worth risking a first rounder on these days, period. And your whole redraft statement helps prove my point. You can find fine backs from the 2nd-UDFA. Just don't risk a first rounder on one of these guys.

 

 

You could do a list like this for every single position in football. Also being drafted in the first round does not necessarily mean you have first round talent. I mean the Browns drafted Manziel in the first round last year and Brandon Weeden at QB in 2012.
 

 

No you can't. That is a list of literally every back drafted in the first since '07. No tainting the list, picking only the failures. That's every single first round running back since AP and Beast Mode were drafted. Period. Find one more position where you have to go back more than a year or two to find someone worth a first rounder and then get back to me.




#3319370 Greg Cosell: Todd Gurley "arguably the #1 prospect in this draft"

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 12 April 2015 - 12:43 AM

Darrin Reaves was certainly a beast for us last season.

 

 

Easily? I didnt google but if you can list one UDFA running back who has the similar production to Adrian Peterson, I would really appreciate it.

 

 

LOL, you could say that about every position, except QB and OT to a lesser extent.

 

Wanna know the last couple of running backs drafted in the first round? The list reads as follows...

 

Trent Richardson

Doug Martin

David Wilson

Mark Ingram
CJ Spiller

Ryan Mathews

Jahvid Best

Knowshon Moreno

Donald Brown

Beanie Wells

Darren McFadden

Jonathan Stewart

Felix Jones

Rashard Mendenhall

Chris Johnson

 

All of those names before 2007, when Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch. You have to go back eight drafts to find a guy who was actually worth a first round pick. You could make an argument for Stew and CJ2K (I wouldn't because I want my 1st rounder to play at a high level for longer than either of them did), but that list is not something I personally want my team to add to.




#3317466 Any Rap/Hip-Hop Fans? Top 5s

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 09 April 2015 - 08:07 PM

Good question. Changes seemingly weekly for me.

 

Instead of ranking based on what they've put recently, I'll just rank artists still dropping music but based off of their entire catalogs.

 

1. Lupe (Last 3 albums are nothing compared to his first two)

2. Kendrick (Haven't gotten into TPAB yet, need to listen more to appreciate it still)

3. Cudi (Same with Lupe. Haven't felt it as much after MOTM I & II)

4. Drake (Again, like everything Take Care and earlier much more than his recent stuff)

5. Kanye (Didn't get into Yeezus or Watch The Throne, so same as everyone else on this list I guess)

 

Honorable mention to Chance, who just needs a bigger catalog to get onto this list. B.o.B can also have an honorable mention, but he fell off super early into his career. His last album was so beyond trash.

 

Up and coming artists...

 

1. Chance

2. DeLaZoo (Lyrically up my ally, but most people can't get past his weird whiteboy vocals)

3. Joey (NYC)

4. Dyme-A-Duzin (NYC)

5. A-1 (San Fran)

 

Honorable mention to Jarren Benton (LA) and Kurs (Philly). Only listened to both in cyphers, but damn did they blow me away. Also honorable mention to Astro (NYC) who is gonna be sick once he starts getting older. Dominic Lord (NYC) can also have a shoutout.




#3316453 2015-2016 North Carolina Tar Heels

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 09 April 2015 - 02:25 AM

Man, if someone can teach JP how to shoot and make better decisions... He could be something in the league.

 

He's a poor man's DeMar Derozan right now IMO. DeMar wasn't a good shot outta UCLA either.

 

Anyways, my bet's on Ingram coming here. That tweet where he said something like "Wow, I did not see that coming" is promising.

 

A lineup of Marcus, Ingram, JJ, Brice, and Kennedy would be so dirty. Isaiah, Berry, Britt, and Theo off the bench? Good luck finding many squads that could match that.

 

If they sanction us and ruin my first actually good basketball team during my senior year..... Raaaage man, rage.




#3312795 Favorite (or Worst) Live Performance of Any Band?

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 05 April 2015 - 05:16 PM

My favorite solo musician. He is as every bit good live perhaps better than his albums. His Chariot album has a live version and you could barely notice the difference from the studio version.

 

Yeah, the stripped version of Chariot is one of my favorites of all time. Good to hear.




#3311894 Favorite (or Worst) Live Performance of Any Band?

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 04 April 2015 - 12:45 PM

Best:
Gavin DeGraw

 

That's one of my dream concerts. The pure amount of soul he puts into his songs and the performances I've seen on Youtube blows my mind. I wanna hear him do Belief and Waterfall on the piano so badly.




#3311888 Favorite (or Worst) Live Performance of Any Band?

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 04 April 2015 - 12:41 PM

I saw Eagles somewhat recently and they were old. The atmosphere sucked because it was a bunch of old people lol. The Eagles to me though influenced a lot of my favorite bands now days. Brian Warner (lead singer of Marilyn Manson's favorite band is the Eagles. So maybe it was just mean but everything about that concert was slow paced.
 

 

I saw The Eagles last year and it blew me away. Now, I'm young and had never been to a show of a band older than the 90's, but I thought it was really impressive how amazing they sounded despite the age. I nearly dropped a tear during Desperado, especially when looking around and seeing the nostalgia and pure bliss in the faces of the old people.




#3311026 Five teams that won't return to the playoffs

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 03 April 2015 - 01:24 PM

We won 7 games last year. We shouldn't have sniffed the playoffs, but we got incredibly lucky.

 

No need to act as if we're a powerhouse with a perennial lock as division winners now.




#3304981 How did you pay for your college?

Posted by Seal (SmittyIsOurSavior) on 29 March 2015 - 11:21 PM

My advice is don't go into school thinking about money and future careers. Take classes that interest you and find your niche. Once you do, find a way to work that into a potential career in the future. As cliche as it sounds, if you end up hating your job, your life is gonna suck penis, regardless of how great it is outside of your job.

 

Find your niche, my friend. Follow what interests you, money aint no thang. You wont need the big money if you can be successful, and you're more likely to be successful doing something you love. Success isn't measured by cashflow, my friend.

 

If you're smart, you'll follow my lead and keep an active eye out for those pre-med, bio/chem, and business girls. Smart is sexy, plus hell yeah if we can still have a nice house whilst I'm tryna make a living in the fields that I love.
