    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    Did the cops attempt to identify and/or contact the minor's parents at all before getting physical?
  2. If they are serious about Daryl taking over as a leader when Rick exits the show, I hope it also in turn raises the status of Jesus. He has been such a waste on the show compared to the comic.
  3. Well I assumed the show wasn't even going to have The Whisperers, and maybe the trash people, living in the dump would be like a modified version, especially because Jadis herself sort of acted bizarrely the way Alpha from the comics did.
  4. To be fair, through the camera lenses aka eyes of Trump & his supporters, I am sure that is what they see.

    Amari Cooper

    Jerry Jones is back to being the owner that can't admit he severely overrated Dak Prescott as a franchise QB and is now making stupid moves to try and prove it. I remember back in the 90's how long he held onto the belief that Quincy Carter would come around. He booted Romo after the injury probably a season or two too soon, got stars in his eyes when Dak benefited from Zeke's rookie year, and is now in full panic mode due to Dark regressing.

    Amari Cooper

    Wow, a 1st round pick? That is crazy. I wouldn't have minded adding Amari Cooper to this roster, but not for a 1st round pick. Leave it to Jerry Jones.
  7. The Saints game sucked, but how many other offenses click on all cylinders like that in the NFC? I think the Rams are technically the #1 offense, but they aren't on the schedule.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    2018 could end up another "Well, someone has to win the division" types of seasons. Don't let that cloud your judgement of Jay Gruden the way it did in 2015.

    Does Doctson even care?

    Not that it was a high percentage throw that should/could be counted on with any kind of regularity, but Smith also did throw that half time closing Hail Mary right into Floyd's chest and he simply dropped it. That also could have changed the course of the game.

    Does Doctson even care?

    It's unfortunate that Doctson was out his entire rookie year because I think we might have got a better look at what he could do as a #3 WR behind D-Jax & Garcon. Right now we are seeing him in a role that he may never be able to live up to, however until they do get a legit #1 WR we won't know if Doctson can at least excel as a #2 or even #3 I wonder how real the possibility of trading for Amari Cooper is.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Alex Smith has been an average QB so far. Perhaps even slightly less than average. Doesn't mean I don't think he won't get better in the offense the more games he plays in it, and/or if/when the front office goes out and actually gets some true playmakers at the WR position. However, one thing I think is still be understated is the fact that he protects the ball well. Not turning the ball over has been an asset for these close games. Alex Smith definitely needs to get better, he needs to get rid of the ball faster. These are things that he should be able to improve on as he gets more comfortable within the offense. It's not like he has had a career issue with holding onto the ball too long. He is likely still in the learning process, not as comfortable with all the pieces yet.....(not to mention lacking some pieces).
  12. The next game in NY scares me. Not because I think the Giants are secretly good, but because that is the type of game this team typically loses, and looks bad doing so in, after a nice emotional victory. If they can go into NY next Sunday and win....in any fashion, I will start to believe that this could be a sign of things turning.
  13. Whatever his outcome is, I have a feeling the character isn't dying. Especially now with him only having 2 episodes left, it would feel so abrupt. I assumed when the announcement was made that they would find a way for his character to be written off the show temporarily and eventually he comes back. I also wonder if Ja(nn)dis is still secretly sinister, or if she is only working with the "people" because she is somehow being forced to.
  14. So Jadis/Ann talking to the guy on the walkie talkies who asked if she'd be giving them an "A" or "B" makes it pretty clear for any of the comic book readers who she was trading people to. Which is funny because when Jadis and her trash heap group were first introduced I assumed they themselves were going to be the tv version of that group.

    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    The few times they showed shots of the full stadium, it looked like the upper deck was scarcely attended.

    Does Doctson even care?

    Doctson had some good catches where he used his body to box out the defender. Alex Smith put the ball on the money too. The one big play that was missed, was more on Alex. Doctson even dove and sold out for the ball to make the catch, but it was overthrown.
  17. Right now the biggest question mark is how lazy was this team in the Colts game? How did they go out there and get pushed around by the Colts? I know it feels like a long time ago now, but this team could have been 5-1.
  18. At this point I'd entertain the idea of signing Dez Bryant at least for the game IN Dallas on Thanksgiving.
  19. There is plenty to criticize from this game, but at the same time we can look back at 2015-2017 seasons and easily point to games that came down to our kicker missing a FG or two during the course of the game. It happens, that's life. Don't leave it up to the kicker and you aren't in that situation.
  20. Hard to say what happens if this game goes to OT, but one thing is for sure, that 5 yard penalty on the Cowboys center made the difference on the FG attempt. From 47 yards out that same kick is going in. You know what though? I have had to live through 'Skins FG kickers missing chip shots that would tie and/or win games, so too frickin' bad.
  21. Offense has done everything to lose this game after scoring a TD on the opening drive. It has been sad to watch.
  22. Beasley went down in bounds. Why is the clock stopped? Oh Washington injury. Good lawd. OT coming up soon dammit.
  23. Why in the world would Alex Smith go out of bounds? If your angle is cut off, slide in bounds. DAMMIT.
  24. Dallas defense was looking for those runs. Gruden obliged.
  25. Thanks for being scared Gruden. Your playcalling might lose this game.
