  1. Climbing the ladder up to a point of respectability requires that we win a game like this one sooner or later. As a nice aside it means that Tx needs to ammend at least a couple of his favorite one-liners. "When was ther last time that Pennyboy beat a team with a winning record... APART FROM THE PATRIOTS in Foxboro?"
  2. Garb/Verde do seem to be afflicted with the disease that results from the imbalance between the numbers males and females in places like this. They laugh at your jokes because they think they might have a shot at getting onto your virtual pants one day my dear, not because you approximate the sharpest tool in the shed I do agree with the idea that the spell check police should holster THEIR firearms. TX, I could send you pictures of a nine dollar bill and tell you it is an elephant. Does it mean that either the nine dollars or the elephant belong to me?
  3. Don't be silly PFSIKH, just because the center got A CONTRACT does not mean that he necessarily got paid the going rate. All Deion Branch was asking for was a little respect and the going rate, probably a little less if truth be told but the cheapo organization tried to play hardball as they have with so many others. Do you really think that Tom Brady is so stupid that he does not read the newspapars and see where his own compensation places him in relation to his peers? Players I might add with far less impressive resumes. If team happiness is not important why does everyone talk it up as being such a big thing? You are in a very weak division this year and I do include the Jets in that evaluation. Playing six games against the east will mask a whole boatload of internal meltdown. Picture Dorian Gray. There is unrest on the good ship Titanic and it is only a matter of time before players start to keep mental note at all times about how far away they are from the nearest lifeboat. Whether or not Branch is happy in Seattle is neither here nor there. The point in case it escpaed your attention is how happy are the players left behind after the Pats front office forced him out?
  4. Tom Brady's condition is technically a case of degenerative pastosis (Throwing arm becomes progressivly more noodle-like over time). The causes for this condition can vary from person to person but in the case of Brady it is suspected that he is suffering from buyers remorse over his contract renewal after seeing the large dollars being handed out to QB's across the league. "Large dollars" let us remind you that he left on the table so the organization would have enough to pay for other people to get theirs like, well like Deion Branch for example or the brown envelope of used 100's that was used to pay off BB's mistress. HGow stupid does Tom Brady feel about that now? Can a hold out be too far in the future for our Tom? How much does his fastball measure on the radar gun nowdays? With pitchers they become "crafty" as their fastball disappears. What I wonder is the euphamism in football? Did Deion Branch call him up after last week to talk about how there is no QB in Seattle now that Matt has gone down with a dinged-up knee? I think it is time for Tom Brady and all New England Patriots players of note to recognize that their club will simply never spend the going rate for their services and if they should happen to get injured that the club will just cut them loose without even a single look back in the rear view mirror. Time to engineer your exit strategy Tommy boy.
  5. Do administrators have double secret permission to read beneath the asterisks Max?
  6. Incidentally folks Finheaven.com is an absolute riot recently. The pain and suffering being self-inflicted by so many new subscribers to Sports Illustrated is delicious almost beyond imagining. Highly recommened.
  7. I am not shy in real life unlike this place where I am entirely laid back and downright cerebral.
  8. To steal a line from Wargames... "The only way to win is not to play".
  9. I assumed the thread had morphed from Chick rockers into hot Chicks who played in bands.
  10. One note about the so called bad offensive coordinators. Yes, they were bad, but no, that did not affect Curtis's ability to put up numbers. In fact it is 100% in the other direction. With Hackett and then Dinger, the structure of the offense seemed designed with the single purpose of giving the ball to Curtis (and only Curtis!) so that he could rack up his personal career numbers even if that ended up being bad for the Jets (many times it was). Curtis played for possibly the most Run-oriented OC working under the most run-oriented HC in the NFL. I guess that is what happens when your high school coach ends up being your Offensive coordinator. I would definitely say that Curtis was better, over the course of his career than Eddie George. It is not all clear to me that the same could be said about Curtis and the bus. Tiki has clearly put together a stretch of dominant seasons better than anything Curtis even came close to doing. Other than that the Jets paid a boatload of money, more than has ever been paid out to any other running back in history, for a player who was better than fair-to-middling on the field. But not all that much better. Curtis managed to perform this feat year in and year out without major injury for an ungodly amount of years. Curtis was never smaller than when the game was big. Curtis did not make the newspapers for beating his wife or waving a gun at somebody in a club at 3am in the morning. In New York with athletes often making headlines for the wrong reasons, that was a good thing.
  11. Tell me I don't get points for mentioning Suzie Quatro.... Um...
  12. So many to choose from.... Belinda Carlisle...(go go's) a bit chunky but good pipes... er... Susanna Hoffs (Bangles).... <walk like an Egyptian...sings>... Posh Spice... I agree with those who wrote in Chrissy Hynde. Honorable mentions to Annie Lenox, Shiela E. and probably several others whose names escpe me.
  13. I agree with this altohugh they would certainly seek contractual protections against his "fragility".
  14. Quick poll, who thinks and processes information more quickly on their feet? A) Drew Bledsoe Daunte Culpepper C) Herman Edwards
  15. Because we have a QB who can do the business?
  16. And the offense batted 1000 causing the Colts to scramble and chase. That was a thrashing on both sides of the ball and it is disingenuous to suggest otherwise. And the only reason that Kicker had the opportunity to miss was because of some horrific plays by the defense in the last minutes of the game. We beat a top NFL team on the road and when they were healthy and well rested. Chad was playing that game with a torn rotator cuff. We can play "what-if's" all day long, every game has tons of those. That Steelers team on that field and in that point of the season were a fearsome opponent who looked for all the world like they were going to steamroller everyone. Lucky for the Pats that the Jets softened them up some and provided a roadmap so that you guys could once again "back door" it into the big dance for the umpteenth time.
  17. TX, Please consider carefully before answering this question. Do you count the Patriots win against the Jets to be a win against a "team with a winning record", with all that implies? If not, why not? Discuss
  18. I hear ya and "on any given Sunday" BZ but that Colts running defense looks made to order for Maroney and Dillon to feast upon. The Vikes might hold a surprise though.
