  1. Are Mullins and Benitendi available? Are you guys comfortable offering up Pedraza?
  2. I have a hard time seeing Holmes being replaced the way he is pitching.
  3. I've been a divorce attorney in New Jersey (its not the only area I practice) since 2006, so hopefully this can be helpful: 1. Divorce is an extraordinarily difficult process for people and I always advise new clients to at least explore speaking to a therapist. Personally, I've been going to a therapist for a few years and it helps. If therapy isn't your thing, try working out, meditating, etc. anything you can do to deal with the extraordinary stress you are going to be dealing with. 2. https://www.nj.com/politics/2022/06/nj-judge-shortage-reaching-crisis-level-with-huge-delays-for-thousands-this-is-catastrophic.html What is happening in New Jersey with the shortage of judges is an atrocity. In Hudson County, I have people that can't even schedule a date to enter their divorce because of the lack of staffing. 3. I'm a believer in mediation. It isn't always going to work, but I think it is important for the parties to get the perspective of a neutral third party so that your settlement expectations can be more realistic. The trick is to get a good mediator that will move the parties towards a settlement instead of just serving as a messenger back and forth between the parties.
  4. We actually had our first confirmed Dr. Doom reference. https://www.comingsoon.net/movies/news/1228256-doctor-strange-2-producer-confirms-doctor-doom-reference-in-multiverse-of-madness
  5. I started season 4 of Westworld last night. As normal, good acting, great cinematography and I still don't know what the hell is going on.
  6. I'm obviously in the minority here, but I'm still drinking the MCU Kool Aid and I enjoyed Multiverse of Madness. The Raimi element definitely made it a stylistically unique entry into the MCU. Wrapping up Wanda's story acr from Wandavision was cool. I also geeked out at the Illuminati scene. I think the biggest issue with the MCU right now is that it is missing the over arching "Infinity War" arc that made the first 10 years of movies so enjoyable. Right now they are trying to introduce a lot of lesser known charcters without a Thanos level threat looming over everything. There are a lot of rumors that Secret Wars is coming (we shall see) but I think they need to nail the Fantastic Four and start introducing mutants soon or the box office numbers are going to start to dwindle.
  7. One of the facsinating aspects of Homelander is that despite being "Superman", is completely driven by some deep seeded insecurities.
  8. Very consequential episode of The Boys last night. We are seeing the last remaining shreds of restraint vanish for Homelander.
  9. This one was always very subtle
  10. That's my concern. I don't have a problem with the offense manufacturing easy reads for Wilson (that's their job after all), but he's going to have to consistently make plays when the defense doesn't guess wrong.
  11. @Doggin94it I agree with most of your post (with the exception that I see a good arm, not an elite arm, and as @Warfish stated, I didn't see many plays that only Wilson could make), however, I think a big area that needs to be watched is whether Wilson's pocket management improves. Aside from his accuracy, I thought his pocket management was Wilson's worst area. We need to see him stop bailing the pocket so early and running backwards; instead, we need to see improved confidence and stepping up into the pocket.
  12. JJ basically dropped because he’s an older prospect and his analytics aren’t great.
  13. This is where I’m at as well. What concerns me about this team is momentum. The schedule before the bye is brutal. The most winnable games are on the road (Cleveland and Pitt). Cleveland even without Watson has a good running game and defense while the Jets (in their history) have only have 1 victory in Pitt. I fear that a bad start to the season for a young team could cause them to spiral downward.
  14. Wilson is a very talented rookie who we have no idea whether he will pan out or not. Moore was a good rookie who missed games and had 538 yards. The TEs should be improved. Its a solid group. The Dolphins have arguably a top 5 trio in the NFL. Waddle went over 1k yards as a rookie. Hill is Hill. Gesicki had 78 catches for almost 8 hundred yards last year.
  15. No weed??!! As if I needed a reason to dislike Chris Simms more than I already do.
  16. As much as some people love to talk about arm strength, mobility, off platform throws, etc., 90 to 95% of being a good QB in the NFL is still about being able to calmly sit in a pocket, go through your reads quickly and make an accurate throw. Jones does this well already. His arm strength is limited, but he can work on that (Brady's arm improved from his second season). Jones will never have Wilson's arm, but he doesn't need it to be successful.
  17. Leaving the QBs aside because I'm bored of the Wilson debate, as excited as I was to add Garrett Wilson, the Dolphins have a trio of Hill, Waddle and Gesicki that is significantly better than what the Jets are going to be trotting out next year.
  18. Technically I'm Jets, Yankees, Celtics. I also grew up in the 80s. Jets - I actually started as a Steelers "fan" when I was 7, but the Dolphins beat them in the 84 championship game. Next year, the Jets beat the Dolphins on MNF, so I figured "Jets must be a better team than the Steelers" and I became a Jets fan instead (wish I could take that one back TBH). Yankees - My cousin was a fan, so I followed the Yankees. Celtics - My grandfather loved Larry Bird, so I became a Celtics fan.
  19. That's a brilliant post once you understand all the references. Cheers.
  20. Westworld trailer for season 4 is out. I completely forgot where last season left off.
  21. A mid first rounder, 6th rounder and 2 street FAs, all from a different era when stats were not as inflated as in the current game.
  22. If Wilson is the real deal, we will know it by the end of his second season and you won't see these debates anymore.
  23. Dude, you had that avatar since the great Tangini on JN, I need more notice for these changes.
  24. Agreed. I’m a lawyer and my mom still thinks I’m an idiot.
