    ***2018-19 NBA Playoffs Thread***

    I’ll ride the Bucks and lay the 7 tonight. Bucks are overdue for a good shooting night.
  4. Yes, but I’ll welcome a few mistakes with a 50 to 7 Td to pick advantage. Everyone throws interceptions.

    ***2018-19 NBA Playoffs Thread***

    So, I'm not basketball fan. During the season, I don't watch the NBA, but I follow it for the news. I love watching playoff basketball but I'll be the first to tell you that I don't "know" what I'm watching from a technical stand point. That said, some things jump out at me: The warriors "normal" is 25 points per quarter, for 3 quarters, with 1 special quarter where they go off for 30+. It doesn't matter who the opponent is. It doesn't matter who's in, who's out, who's hurt, how good a defense they play. The warriors, without doing anything *special* or superhuman, can expect to score between 100 and 110 a night. Most opponents can reasonably expect to score 20-25 points in a quarter against them, and sometimes guys go off and do something crazy, but no one can average that against them for an entire game. The warriors score between 100 and 110 without needing anyone to "go off". They just score that. Other teams need someone to play outside themselves just to get into that conversation. Night in and night out they can go into halftime down 60-48 and know that the other team how no hope of getting another 60, but they ave an honest 50-5- shot of getting to 120 themselves. I'll also say, it's downright crazy to say that Durant doesn't make them better, or that they are better without him. But I DO think it's fair to say that Durant does not elevate them by his own value. Realistically, there are only so many points that can be scored in a game. The warriors can score 120 without Durant. They can score 120 with Durant. Adding him makes them a better and more complete team, but he isn't meaningfully increasing their win total nor their point total. Durant on that team kind of feels like a game of Madden where you stack a team with Tom Brady, OBJ and AJ Green, then trade for Julio Jones. But realistically, you're only going to throw for X number of yards anyway so adding that extra receiver doesn't really make a difference.
  6. Im actually expecting a few speed clean up sacks, nothing too huge yet - I'm much more excited about his weakside runsupport, he is a demon chasing down RBs who cut back. With the big guys pushing up front and him bursting from cross sideline I expect a lot of plays made that preston just never did. His weakside runsupport was easily his most impressive thing on tape last year imo
  7. You’re right, but I’m going to give him time. Five to six sacks this year, but with some very impactful plays in clutch situations mixed in, and I’m happy about his rookie year.

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    The picture I saw only showed him from the thigh up smart ass. You can't tell in the pictures whether Smith is stillwearing the external fixator on his right leg, but regardless of whether he is or not, it's still great to see him in Ashburn around the organization. And that's a quote from the article.

    should have seen cm before. although i heard they filmed endgame before cm.
  11. I’ve been saying this and I’ll reiterate, Haskins can make all the throws. But what stands out is the location, and the touch.
  12. We need to pick a Haskins game to break down thoroughly, I can sneak the all 22 if no one tells on me.

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    Could he retire, losing about 40 million over the next two years, but be hired as an assistant coach with a 20 mil per year salary? This would alleviate our salary cap issues and give a big middle finger to the league for the cap penalty back in 2013...

    Would you want HBO Hard Knocks to feature us this year?

    I hear you but I don't think there is a short cut to respect and affection the team has to be serious, focused and ultimately successful. Participation in Hard Knocks looks like the definition of a lack of devotion and commitment to true success to me. That said, I'm in my twilight so what I think doesn't much matter as much as what young people think because Snyder has to find a way to nurture the fandom of young people and maybe this would help him attract and hold their attention more.
  16. Journalists shouldn't be concerned just yet. We'll need to see the facts he's being prosecuted with. If he's being prosecuted for being a passthrough platform for some American whistleblower, okay, then I could see the potential problems. But if he's being prosecuted for publishing information he knowingly received from a foreign government, then **** him. Anyways, this week has been lit since the moment Trump mentioned the "I" word, and I don't mean impeachment. Also, I don't have too much sympathy for the Chelsea Manning situation. They went above and beyond in trying to get classified data to Assange, and Assange seems to have knowingly participated. You publish, then you PUBLISH. Once you start extracting, directly or indirectly, you take on the liability.
  17. You have a good point, the reason and need, as well as reporting requirements to a central database would help eliminate guessing......probably a legislative need .
  18. I'd just like to point out that @twa voted for this person to be President of the United States of America. Himself. While he was sober. And he has no regrets. Other than not drinking before going to vote. I'm pretty much convinced that Carson is essentially an idiot savant. He's great at one very specific thing...operating on brains. On pretty much anything else he's repeatedly shown himself to be a ****ing moron.
  19. Lead paragraph from your article that "Debunk(s) Common Pro-Choice Argument". "Data from Florida reveal that, in 2018, an overwhelming majority of women reported obtaining an abortion for reasons other than to preserve their own life or health, or due to fetal-health complications." Wow, that really debunked the "common" argument that most abortions are to save the mother's life or health. Wonder how many times that "common argument" has been used, in this years-long thread. (I'm also admiring that the 2-3 paragraphs of that thing that I read, mentioned that any time the mother chose not to list a reason, they assumed it was elective. Not that they were trying to force a conclusion or anything.)
