Celebrate when we're actually winning games.

 

He is making smart moves. Better team deals and setting up our roster beautifully for the draft.

Definitely a changed man since destroying this team during his first stint. Might have something to do with his good friend JR being gone, but who cares... he’s getting the job done.

Save the Debbie Downer routine for your own thread. You know good and well people just want to be excited about something, anything during this dead time of the year. These signings are solid, taken at face value, and you're unable to shoot any holes in them other than a bunch of hypotheticals. Why not save all of that for a blockbuster I TOLD YA SO post later in the season if your predictions come true. 

Not predicting anything good or bad. I actually like the moves I've seen so far, but I've also liked moves that were made in other years where we ended up not looking so hot.

Heck, just in just the last few days when we hadn't signed anyone, we were pointing to the need for patience and poking fun at other teams for celebrating Super Bowl victories in March, and rightly so.

It doesn't suddenly start making sense when it's us doing it.

I like the moves. I also liked the Dontari Poe signing, so there's that to consider as well. LOL!

Exactly.

Hell, people when apesh-t when we signed David Carr.

Can't we just enjoy a few good moves before going overboard? Last year was not good for free agency. I wish people would stop saying Hurney is different now.  He still gave out too much money to scrubs last year and still hasn't made any major cap saving moves this year yet. Calm TF down.

These aren’t offseason champs moves though. That’s what the Browns are doing. These are smart signings at huge positions of need for very good value which is exactly what we need.

Granted they are both coming off injury but we don’t an all pro OT and a great C who are young at these prices if there weren’t some questions.

The only free agent bust was Poe.

Yeah, Torrey Smith sure tore it up.

Granted, at least CJ Anderson looked  goo... Oh, wait.

I'm good with Paradis, cautiously optimistic with Williams, hoping neither Matt Kalil nor Torrey Smith makes it to training camp but those decisions have yet to be made.

Either way, I've never been one to start having Super Bowl dreams in March and I'm sure as heck not gonna start now. Honestly, most years I don't generally feel like I have a real sense of the team until about game five or so.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
