  1. Haven't given this exercise any time yet but when I go through the posts, this list seems closest to one that I'd put together. The only item I'd address on mine is somehow getting Aaron Donald on here. Otherwise to me, this is a perfect list.
  2. Don't think I've ever seen this convention used before.
  3. That’s fair, but golf is an individual sport. Hank was the best goalie in the league for years but at any given point there are 11 other people on the ice influencing the game. Baseball; specifically a CF is even less of an individual impact on each game of their careers. If we’re talking Golf, Tennis, NBA, and to a large extent even QBs in the NFL - championships factor much heavier in the legacy discussions. Baseball, hockey - sure, but less impactful by multiple stndrd devs.
  4. Come on bud. Don't bring that here. You really want me to tell you that using your logic, you'd take Brad Johnson over Dan Marino? You've been long enough to know how this works.
  5. I'm a Yanks fan, but I'll take Griffey Jr. #1 every single time in an all-time draft.
  6. Pennington and Ryan are both overrated. One being considerably better than the other doesn't make him good overall. Ryan being the GOAT around here is more of an indictment of the sh*t we've had since Namath, than it is a feather in Ryan's cap.
  7. Matt Ryan is one of the most overrated QBs of this generation. He made a career out of putting up stats in the regular season while mostly playing from behind. In every season of his career, he’s played with at least one all-pro “weapinz” and in a few seasons, multiple. He played with a GOAT TE, an elite WR, and a handful of other really good receivers that were able to produce without Ryan as well either before or after their time playing with him. He consistently had good OLs, good rushing attacks, and at least for the first 10 years of his career he consistently had good defenses. Put it all together, and the guy has 0 rings and only 1 truly elite season to his name. His reputation amongst NFL fans and media is mind-boggling to me and has been since he was at BC. I’d say he is one of the more obvious examples of fantasy football skewing people’s perceptions of a player, because he really has never been good in big games or in big situations within games, despite having strong teams to work with for the majority of his career.
  8. Just caught the finale of Better Call Saul. Wow. I never felt that Howard deserved all the vitriol that he was getting from Saul and Kim. Of course it wasn't their fault what happened, and we kind of knew something had to happen to him given that it's a prequel, but man that was something. An amazing episode from beginning to end. The final 6 episodes are gearing up to be nuts.
  9. This is why the Morgan pick doesn't fit into the larger narrative. He was a 5th/6th rounder taken in the 4th when we already had a 3rd overall pick going into a do-or-die season who needed to be evaluated. Willis was considered best in class at various times leading up to the draft.
  10. Completely agree. Sam was the entrenched starter going into his consequential third year. There was no chance he wasn't going to start all 16 games if he were healthy - no matter how badly he may have bombed. If Morgan's entire purposes was simply to serve as the backup, it's a waste of a pick. Veteran backups are a dime a dozen - and wouldn't you know it, Joe Flacco was brought in as the veteran backup for not only that season, but the next two as well! Taking QBs unnecessarily because "hey ya never know" is a stupid strategy regardless of what transpired ex-post.
  11. Lol this thread is like the one after the bucs game where Zach Wilson and his 1 TD for 234 yards off of 57% completions was deemed “AWESOME!&!!&!!!”. Just overall bad takes.
  12. The bolded two items are opposites, yet they are being used to describe the same person just one sentence apart. I'm confused.
  13. Wholeheartedly agree with everything outside of the bold. I don't agree that the two are mutually exclusive. I think trading up at the right price for the right player is part of the process. Not trading away premium picks for big names and bigger contracts is also part of the "process". I also think that JD knew that he already had a mostly full TC roster, and that if he continued to simply take players, he'd eventually have to get rid of them anyway - so rather trade up for quality. As fans of the Jets who have been bad at so many positions for so many years, the mentality is always quantity>quality, but for years I've been toying with the idea that better teams know when to take quality over quantity. That's not to say that the Jets are a good team right now, but it's to say that he knows from his own experiences in Balt and Philly that there isn't only one way to approach the draft. The best strategy is blending the two to allow for flexibility when it's necessary. For the most part, I like what JD has done. He's definitely the best GM we've had in a long time, but again that's not saying much. However, it won't mean anything if it doesn't translate into Ws. And right now, the Jets record with JD as GM is absolutely horrific.
  14. Do it. I created gmail addresses for my son and daughter a few days after each was born, and I’ve been sending them quick messages. Nothing extravagant yet as they’re 2 and 1 respectively, but just a quick thought or recap of something that happened. I’m excited to relive those moments with them when they grow up.
  15. Would love a quality QB to go with all of the awesome OL and Weapinz picks the last few years. Might be able to find one tomorrow.
