    2019 NFL Off-Season Thread

    WHOA. That’s best case scenario right there. Didn’t think the Ravens would have enough leverage to swing a deal, but I’m glad they did. Curious about the return, of course, but the fact they traded him at all is great.

    R.I.P. Frank Robinson

    A true Orioles legend. His number is retired by the hall club despite only playing here six years. A big part of the glory days of Oriole baseball. And that was just while he was a player.

    Can’t speak for the mods but I think Rams hit it right on the head. I think this is a warning shot.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    This put so many of my feelings about the Patriots into words. I hate them, always will (even when they eventually do suck again, probably), but to me they’ve taken the joy and the fun out of football. I know that’s probably way to cliche or whatever for people, but this was the least excited I’ve ever been for a Super Bowl. Normally in the weeks leading up to a Super Bowl, the game and the party we throw and the food and the commercials and everything, I’m hyped about. I’m talking about it, I’m reading articles about it, the whole nine yards. This year I spent most of the weeks leading up to LIII playing Sonic the Hedgehog and wondering if Maroon 5 would actually do a cool and meme-y thing and play a song from a cartoon in “the biggest concert of the year” (spoiler: they did not). I respect teams that win with defense and teams that can outscheme you offensively instead of “here star QB take this ball and chuck it somewhere”, but seeing a team steamroll an entire league for the better part of two decades with a west coast offense and sneakily good defense gets boring and not-fun.

    2018 NFL Weekly Picks Contest

    Had fun as always. Nearly missed out on a podium finish last year IIRC and really wanted to build on that this year. Clearly, back to the drawing board I go Thanks as always for running the show Kramer. I’ve tried and failed to run a weekly picks gambit with far fewer participants, so I understand the challenge. Thanks for doing it

    If I see one more dang mid season “Is the Patriots dynasty finally done for good?” article...

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    I normally don’t get involved with this type of stuff, and I’m keeping my involvement brief, but that’s looking at it a bit too simply here. No NFL team other than the 80’s 49ers have even come close to what the Patriots have accomplished. Other than the Patriots now, one NFL team has won 6 championships. They did that over a span of 34 years. The Patriots accomplished it in half that time. I think the fatigue is understandable, especially when even in the years they didn’t win they’ve been a near ever-present in Championship games.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    5 turnstiles at O-line + no pressure on Brady + offensive team serves up 3 points = massive L.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    I do have to say I enjoyed a defensive struggle. Yes I will remember this game forever now as “boring” because of the outcome (not ashamed to admit it), but it was kinda fun to see two teams known for their offenses win with defense.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Look, I get it - it’s super annoying to hear people constantly complain and whine about one team always winning and one team always having things work out for them, when a lot of it is overblown. This organization is freaking good. You don’t win 6 SBs by accident, or by the refs conspiring for you, or by cheating. As I said before, we have run out of reasons to explain away this dynasty. They are that good. But at at the same time, it’s also really annoying to see one team constantly winning, one team constantly experiencing success, one team constantly triumphing. Especially in a league that takes pride in its “parity.” Im sorry if complaining about the Patriots makes me a whiner, sore loser, or annoys you. But I’m tired of seeing such an unlikable franchise win constantly. Sorry.
