    I think it’s fine to start talking up Mahomes in these debates, even if it is a bit early in his career.


    But, also consider this...what if the Chiefs opt for Watson at #10 and the Texans draft Mahomes at #12?  Is there any way we are talking “Mahomes best ever” if BOB gets his hands on him instead of him getting plugged into Andy Reid’s fantastic system with all those weapons?


    Highly doubtful, I think.


    I think Mahomes would have excelled with Hopkins, but he wouldn't have the weapons that he does now.  His connection with Kelce is special, there's something to be said for that, but all great QBs usually have a great target or two that they can have a connection with.  Certainly something to be said about getting hurt by O'Brien, though, that dude didn't do Watson any favors.

    Anyone else get annoyed that “the Christmas season” starts in like October now?  Or that “Black Friday” now means “November”?




    It sucks.  I think Nordstrom was the last department store that would stick to it's guns and not put out their Christmas stuff until the day after Thanksgiving. But department stores were rapidly becoming more irrelevant before this year, way more irrelevant now.  That said, I always respected them for that.

    You see a Seagull, I see a mighty Eagle.


    Thanks for coming to my TED talk.







    I looked it up, it's not even an eagle, don't bull**** me here, TTB.  



    The symbol stands for Mazda's determination to “pursue ongoing improvements to drive powerful, continuous growth”, expressed by a pair of wings shaped like a letter M in an oval. The V-shaped wings are also suggestive of Mazda's flexible thinking, creativity, vitality, kindness and resilience.


    Sounds like they hired an art student who just finished up their bachelor's and could write a really good artist statement.  I've not once looked at the Mazda logo and said, "Hey, you know what?  That looks like they're really determined to 'pursue ongoing improvements to drive powerful, continuous growth.'  And they're obviously a flexible thinkers that are very creative, full of vitality, kindness and resilience."


    I say **** the seagull wings, go back to this cool Wonder Woman looking thing that they had back in the day:

    Hey now!!




    That's cool.  Any chance they fix the logo?  Looks like a seagull flying away.

    Didn't say it was "better", lol.


    More aggressive, yes.


    Junior's was a work of art.  Although I always want to point out his lower body strength was insane.  He looked skinny but his legs were trees.


    On that note, Will Clark's stance and swing is top 5 for me.


    Will Clark was fantastic.  Lefties have a distinct advantage when it comes to the sweet swing convo.

    Of course not. This is purely a “we didn’t win so we want to change the rules”


    sort of like how many of these same people now want to expand scotus so they can change the fact that their guy didn’t get to appoint the justices when it was time. 


    Not to get off topic here, but those same people sure as **** were correct with the ACB situation last month.  Especially after the Merrick Garland fiasco.

     Sigh. You just learned about this thing like a few minutes ago, don't start with me about how it would actually work. :)


    Nobody ****s with a lawyer.


    Here's what I'm wondering:  If the EOC had historically favored Democrats and Democrats had won elections with it by NOT winning the popular vote like the GOP did in 2000 and 2016, are we having this conversation?

    Have at it, Maryland doofuses (you know who you are)!





    No, they need to have that flag on it somewhere.  You know that Maryland flag they put on everything from thongs and belts to crab stickers on the back of a car?


    You know that Maryland flag, right?  The one that looks like a 3rd grader in art class had a seizure?


    That said, I've heard rumors that they're going to make a new flag, here's what it'll look like:

    Windy here too, and cold af. Hope it stays this way. I hate this time of year. 50 and chilly one day, 79 with 90% humidity the next, 55 and dreary/foggy the day after that. 




    I ****ing hate this time of the year, too.  Cold, windy as ****, getting dark at 4pm.  


    Everyone's like "OMG, I love the fall, the leaves change, Halloween, Thanksgiving!!  Football!!  Ahhhh fall!!!!"  Halloween and Thanksgiving are only two days out of the entire time, and only one of those days isn't surrounded by stress, a high amount of cooking, making plans and having to deal with family and traveling their bull**** logistics.  Football is a check in the good column, depending on how much you watch, but if your team sucks like ours does, well, it's not all that great by this time of the year.


    The wind this morning sounded like it was going to tear the side off my apartment and it'll be getting dark at 4pm.  **** all the way off, fall.

    I pointed this out about S. Sims in the offseason when everyone was going crazy over him. He just doesn't catch the ball that well.  The rest we just don't know about. But when we look at other positions such as LB, S, and obviously OL WR is pretty far down the list of needs.  A good QB can make this group look perfectly fine, or at least not a liability. 


    It's why he went undrafted, IIRC.

  10. There was an older one of these, started a long time ago and it's now locked.


    I love the blues, I think it's the perfect music.  From sitting at my desk and working, to a road trip to sitting outside and drinking whiskey and smoking cigars with friends, it always has a place.  


    Pitchfork yesterday wrote a review yesterday on John Lee Hooker's It Serve You Right to Suffer:  https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/john-lee-hooker-it-serve-you-right-to-suffer/


    It's been on a loop practically all day.

    I would absolutely not call WR a strength. Terry is elite and we do have some young guys who have promise but they are more 4th or 5th receivers on a good unit. Adding another legitimate quality outside receiver would be a huge boost for the offense. 


    I wouldn't call it a strength, either.  At least not yet.


    I interpreted the comment as we've got a group of guys, any one of them is capable of stepping up and becoming a good #2.  I think you're right, these guys are probably 4th receivers on other teams but sometimes guys just need opportunities to shine and that's what we have here.  Cam Sims might be buried on another roster with a more robust corps, but here he's got a chance to make something of himself.  The receiving group isn't a strength at all presently, but there are guys with upside.

    Agreed, I think all of the WR's we've run out there have shown they can play, except for Badet and he's not had much of a shot. I like Sims, Simms Jr and Wright. Like I said in another post, WR seems like a strength of this team right now. Sims is physical and can get open. I like what I see out of him big time. 

    Also, one thing that playing Kyle and now Alex has done is show what the WR's can do...Alex keeps drives moving which lengthens the evaluation of all the offensive players. 


    Sims Jr still doesn't have hands, which is problematic.  He dropped a perfect pass in the 4th quarter, that ball was delivered about as good as you could ask for it.  It's a shame because he is shifty and I think they could use him as a weapon in different sets.  I don't know why, but I'd like to see him in a two back set with Gibson/McKissic with both of them headed out to catch passes, I think that could be hard for a defense.


    Cam Sims is flashing, finally.  Looks like he has a good rapport with Smith.  Great to see, here's hoping he can finish strong this season.
