  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.
  16. Who’s ratings are those and how are they derived? What jumps out immediately is Saquan at #2 overall, while everyone else is late 1st or early/mid 2nd round. Just reinforces what some of us have been saying for years about a running back’s value proposition. Hopefully Breece lives up to the billing. I’m excited.
  17. Strong Herm Edwards vibes. Player coach through and through, great salesman, culture changer. These types are great in the beginning, but they typically have a ceiling and when they’re unable to break through the ceiling, their act gets old. That’s where I am with Hurley right now. Hurley is fine with the X’s and O’s. He generally has good strategies to start games. But he’s awful at in-game coaching - whether it’s adjusting on the fly, timeout management, or having a pulse on the game. In his years here, we’ve squandered too many big leads, lost too many close games, and generally underachieved far too often for there not to be a trend. The singular big game that UConn has won since he joined the program was this year against yall, and he was watching from the locker room as Kimani led us to the W. Needless to say, I’m over him.
  18. Pretty short offense too. Zack, Elijah, Braxton, Wilson. Not a critique, just an observation.
  19. Great tourney all the way around. Definitely surprised by Wright's retirement. Furious with Dan Hurley. For sake of argument, I'll say that I started following UConn as a legit fan in '96 around the time I turned 10. Between '96-'20, I had never seen UConn underachieve to the degree that we have under Hurley two years in a row. I'd seen many overachievements. The only obvious disappointment was the George Mason year. Last year with the first round exit, and this year losing to mother****ing NM State who only had 1 actual player playing.....just unacceptable. At least when the lady huskies lost in the championship game, they lost to the clearly better and healthier opponent. The worst part? The best mens coach is the highly sought after assistant who will leave for a HC job somewhere this year, and we'll be stuck with Hurley for years to come.
  20. I'd say if our draft picks turned into sure things, I'd definitely do it. However, looking at the history of the league, that doesn't seem to be the case. Our history specifically, is even worse than the collective league's history. So, no.
  21. They’ll need a cover now that he’s completed a full year of the HGH routine. Brady had TB12 as his cover, I guess Mac’s will be training with olympians.
  22. Deebo, AJ, and Terry are all not participating. Still hoping we can acquire either AJ or Terry.
  23. Hate the Raiders, but their fans have every single reason to be optimistic. A top 10 QB, top 2 WR, top 3 TE, top 7 RB, and a great offensive mind calling the shots. I wouldn't even begin to know how excited I'd be if the Jets ever put something like that together. The people hating on Carr probably are the same ones who think Zach Wilson is the next Patrick Mahomes. Meanwhile, I'd give up so much for Zach Wilson to become Derek Carr. Unfortunately, everything he's put on tape looks more like David Carr.
