    2019 Game Day Thread

    I have this odd fascination with the legend of 3Li. Where it has been foretold that Eli will come in one last time to topple an unbeatable Patriots team. So, my first thought is that KC is very likely to play the Pats in the playoffs. The Pats D looks historically good, kind of like the Pats offense looked in their almost perfect season. So, I have to wonder if tonight set into motion a domino effect that will result in the triumph of Eli over the greatest dynasty the NFL has ever seen. Of course, I may be overthinking things a bit. It is possible that 3Li will not occur... in our timeline.
  2. I don't pay a lot of attention to politics, but I did watch this debate. I have to say, the thing that stuck out to me was they struggle Biden had expressing his thoughts. I have seen some comments in this thread noting his articulation problems. Was tonight worse than usual for him, or does he have these issues on the campaign trail?
  3. Hey man, not cool. That was the best day of my life! I think I love her.
  4. If this game ends up with an exciting, flurry of back and forth final quarter. The NFL could market the replays as the "Game of the Weak"!

    I hate that they do not even overturn when it is clear and obvious. I would much rather see teams only get two or three challenges in a season, than to not acknowledge calls that should be obvious. Make the replay rare, but accurate. If it doesn't define your season, do not challenge the call.

    The Pats offense has been pretty bad in several games this year. It almost makes them look vulnerable. But I wonder if this is another Brady/ Belichick trick to get the team to believe the rest of the NFL is saying they suck. They are the ultimate dynasty in he NFL, but they seem to view themselves as the scrappy underdogs all the time. They look rough right now, but I'm not buying it. If they lose at some point in the next few weeks, I expect Gronk to un-retire, AB to resume his contract, and then see them trade a 4th round pick for Stephon Diggs. Then, they dominate while playing the rest of the season enraged that someone on the internet said they they weren't good anymore.
  7. These kinds of stats are so dumb. I don't think think Dak is a great QB, but this stat doesn't mean much. I also find it interesting that they chose the cutoff of 2017. Why not include the prior year, where he was 13-3 (with his 3rd loss being when he was taken out after the first drive because Dallas already won home field advantage in the NFC) and the only winning team to beat him was the Giants. Good lord, the guy won a playoff game last year. I find it funny that only Tom Brady has won more games than Dak since Dak came into the league. People have to do some serious mental gymnastics to say that wins/losses are not a QB stat... unless it is against teams above .500. Not saying Dak should be given record money or anything... just that I hate the cherry picking of stats to justify the belief that you already have.
  8. I think if I was an NFL GM, I would push for contacts that includes bonuses for players that do not have a social media presence, or includes fines for any week that a coach or teammate is asked by the media for their response to something negative or questionable the player posted on social media.

    Game Day Thread - Pats at Redskins

    Belichick is great at taking advantage of obscure rules. Maybe this week we find out that if you do a drop kick FG when the tackle is an eligible receiver, you get the points and maintain possession.

    Gruden announces Colt McCoy starting vs NE

    I was going to counter with the argument that, Tom Brady is old now... But then I remember that he was old back then too.

    Gruden announces Colt McCoy starting vs NE

    Ok, from what I am reading, Belichick/Brady have never beaten Colt McCoy. In Colt's only start against them, he led to a Browns team to a 34-14 win in 2010. This seems like the kind of thing Belichick would be using to convince his team that they have to be on their "A game" at all times if they are going to have a chance of winning this week.
  12. I agree. I don't think that what is seen on the videos is very controversial. In Dallas, Jimmy Johnson would get drunk and call into radio programs to guarantee a win in the next game. These brief videos don't come close to that type of behavior. These things are really viewed differently if the team is winning. The only way this would become a big deal, is if the release of the video was orchestrated by a player or someone in the FO. I don't think that is likely. However, if it was, that would be a huge story.

    Jerry Jones in 1993, after Jimmy Johnsons last game was his second consecutive Super Bowl victory. I dont know the meaning of the word "can't ", I do what I want. Hold my scotch!

    Next Coach?

    Considering how dysfunctional the coach-front office relationship seems to be, I think the only reason the Redskins would keep Jay for the rest of the season is if Dan and Bruce think that Jay is trying to force them to fire him. If they think Jay wants out, they may refuse to let him out. Otherwise, I think he gets fired next week if the Redskins don't look competitive against the Pats.

    Redskins vs Patriots Prediction Thread: Super Flying Wedgie Edition

    Fun fact for this game, Tom Brady was teased a bunch last year due to the fact it took like 18 seasons for him to get the career milestone of 1,000 rushing yards. He finished the season with 1,003 career rushing yards. However, he has -3 rushing yards this year, and now has exactly 1,000 career rushing yards. So, the Redskins have an opportunity to take him down a peg this week.
