    I liked it. Am grateful that I lived to see the end. Outstanding TV series over 10 years. I am happy with the ending. I think it's because I watched and didn't project my own storytelling into it. A little more about me. Since my stroke, I haven't read nearly as much as I used to. So TV and movies are the most meaningful now. I loved this show.

    On watching film and the whole 'first in last out' thing. There is no doubt that work ethic and 'putting in the time' is crucial for an NFL QB. Crucial. The mental requirements of mastering your own offense AND the defensive looks you will be seeing AND the adjustments based on those looks just demands it. But its 2019 people. Film can be broken down by the analysis team and sent in clips as required to an ipad/tablet - you want to see every third and 7 look from an opposing defense, here you go. Want to see how they defended every single 1st down this season when they were against 21 personnel, here you are. Want to see isolation on a specific corner and how he plays a specific route or route combination, not a problem. Watching 'film' is now much easier, much more productive - and can be done literally anywhere. The back seat of a Bentley for example ... Spending time in the facility and watching some of this with coaches and other QBs is important. But (metaphorically) sleeping on a fold up bed in the training room is not a measure of anything really.

    OTs have easier assignments than they used to because of how shotgun heavy offenses are now. They're overvalued by the league, and their cost is a market inefficiency that the smart teams like the Patriots exploit. They traded sixth round positioning for Trent Brown and used him as the LT for an elite OL. The season ends and now Oakland is paying 16 million a year for him. You don't have to be fast any more to play OT. You just have to be big and able to handle power counters reasonably well. You can get all of the help you need from six man protections when you get matched up with Von Miller. OGs are undervalued. B Gap rush has become the premium rusher position in the era of shotgun spreads and Aaron Donald and you can't scheme in help for a guard with your Y. Nor can you abandon your Y to handle the edge rush by comboing the B gap. These are individual match ups that your guards have to win. You need two great interior linemen to handle interior pressure. Losing Scherff would be a massive blow.

    I was just coming in here to say that we can't blame this one on the Fed Ex Field turf...but apparently the practice field sucks, too I just don't get it. I really don't. A couple years ago I'm in press box at Fed Ex and talking to someone that worked for the Cowboys. I asked him what their facilities are like and he just started going off. I don't remember the details, but he was just like, "Man, everything is first class...." and just explained how Jerry wastes NOTHING to make sure that the team facilities are palatial. From the fields, the locker rooms, they have chefs there cooking food all the time...just whatever they want, it's there. I can't imagine spending a ton of money on players and then not investing in the finest facilities to keep them as healthy as possible. It'd be like taking a Ferrari and flying down a gravel road at 90 mph, kicking up rocks, chipping the paint, dust everywhere....and then just leaving it parked outside under trees so acorns can fall on it, dent it, tree sap, etc. Take that beautiful sports car and just abuse it as much as you can. Spend a ton of money on it but don't spend anything to keep it protected and keep it looking cherry. Makes NO sense.

    I look forward to people blaming this on Gruden for not pushing them hard enough on the first play of OTA’s.

    Full conscience stream for the final episode, written as I watched. It's a long and rambling mess, so click at your own risk. You shouldn't.

    I really like that youtube video...but good lord, DiNardo really needs to learn about the concept of personal space. He was practically sitting on Dwayne's lap.

    Gonna ask, and I have a sinking feeling I'm going to regret this: Why, exactly, do we care what Haskins spends his money on... Why do we care if he goes broke? Why do we care if he stays rich the rest of his life? It is a total non-factor for us. As fans I believe we should care about a few things: On field play, his character, and the number one rule: him not being a dick. If you're a hater, lover, neutraler, apologist, Hiram of Haskins, Keen for Keenum, Cult of Colt... It frankly doesn't matter in the least, to literally any of us. I go through life working a regular job, making less in my entire LIFE than Haskins will on his actual contract. Him buying a Bentley, or a 70's shaggin' wagon is of absolutely no consequence to any of us. So... why do we care what he spends his money on, and why are we offering him financial advice or posting articles about players going broke?

    John Keim‏Verified account @john_keim 1m1 minute ago Gruden said Foster stepped on the foot of offensive lineman Tyler Catalina as he rushed a gap at three-quarters speed. So much for the crappy practice field explanation...

    So I have to say, everyone here has probably seen multiple posts from me with my theory that Sam was going to wind up winning in the end. I even tied it to Roman history, for ****s sake. After Sansa shot her uncle down and Sam stood up, I thought I had it nailed. I thought he was going to launch into a passionate speech and they would turn around and make him king. I had my fingers ready to go with a post gloating how much smarter I was than the rest of you. Then they laughed at him. I was crushed. So here's my re-write of the last episode. Everything happens the exact same way it did up until the point where the lords laugh at Sam. The screen cuts to black for a few seconds. Next scene, Sam is walking out of the gates of KL, and everything and everyone is on fire again. He smirks to himself as he walks off, and in the distance, you can see a flaming wheelchair with a burning skeleton rolling down a street. End scene.

    Oh my God. My mouth literally dropped open as I read that Ernie made more than 4 million a year. All this time I just assumed he kept the job because he worked dirt cheap. PLEASE let me have this job Ted. I will work for just two million a year and I promise you I will get two draft picks right every five years instead of one.

    The ending was entertaining and ended in a nice spot for most characters. It’s fine if you just go with it but if you think about it, if all falls apart and nothing really makes sense either with the story or the characters and motivations. Which has basically been the show since the end of season 6. For example: sansa: release Jon Snow Grey Worm: no, he killed my queen whom I loved dearly. he must meet justice which is death as a traitor tyrion: well there is no king anymore so lets pick one from all these 10 people 5 of which are either family members or best friends of Jon and the rest are mostly pretty friendly towards him. They will decide his fate. Grey worm: sure that’s fair. What’s that? Oh his brother is now king? Yeah this seems like justice has been assured. I will now sail off into the distance

    As probably the only person discussing abortion to actually having one and subsquently giving birth to my daughter years later, I will tell of my experience. My first pregnancy, I was on birth control pills and they failed. The man didn't wear a condom exercising his bodily autonomy. Neither of us wanted a child at that point. We weren't in a committed relationship and weren't in a financial position to support a child. We each paid half of the price. My best GF came with me, and that was the end of that relationship. I was happy to have the choice to exercise my bodily autonomy. And I have never forgotten that I was pregnant and I have never forgotten how grateful that I didn't have to continue to be pregnant. My second pregnancy occurred when I wasn't using birth control due to medical issues and the father didn't use condoms ever because he didn't like them. When I realized I was pregnant at four months, it was too late for a legal abortion. So I decided to keep my daughter. During this time, when I told the father I was pregnant, he informed me that he had gotten married the previous year and his wife was pregnant too. So I never got support from him because he lived in another state, and at that time there wasn't reciprocal child support between states. He later killed himself when she was three, so never any support. I don't accept sympathy because I was able to support her myself very well. Plus I was able to live my Lesbian life without interference. My life would have been much different had I been forced to carry the first pregnancy to term, even if I had signed up for adoption. I had a problem pregnancy the second time. Ultimately, it was my life that counted and not a collection of cells. I want every female to have the same rights of her body as I did, the choice to complete pregnancy or to terminate it. It's no one's decision but her's.
