  1. Seems as if we don’t have an MLB playoff thread. NL Wild Card game currently in progress, 1-0 Rockies in the 6th.
  2. Even Internet Explorer thinks you’re late on that one.

    You just had to know that the announcers would jinx Tucker one of these days.

    Forgotten Rivalries

    This Sunday, the Ravens travel to Tennessee to play the Titans. There was a time when the Ravens and Titans were each other’s biggest rivals. A lot of big moments in the rivalry went down in 2000, such as the Ravens handing the Titans their first loss at then-Adelphia Coliseum, then doubling down with a playoff victory in Tennessee which included this ridiculous Ray Lewis moment on Eddie George. After the NFL shuffled divisions, causing the AFC Central to disband and separating the Titans and Ravens, the rivalry cooled off significantly. However, playoff rematches in 2003 and 2008, along with Titans legends Steve McNair, Derrick Mason, and Samari Rolle finishing their careers in Baltimore, have provided glimpses into the rivalry’s past. Largely, though, it has been forgotten, partially due to the Steelers’ emergence as the Ravens’ main rival. It it got me thinking, what other rivalries have disappeared and been largely forgotten?

    NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    I kinda hope they do. While I always have and likely always will love the game of football and its excitement, I really don’t care for the NFL itself and would love to see it go down in flames.
  7. I think we’re all forgetting it’s about time the sports universe gave us another Boston title. We’ve had some pretty cool/new/deserving champions over the last few years, especially in baseball. Time for the Law of Averages to work its magic.
  8. Which is also a problem when you consider the next generation of baseball fans. The MLB is already having issues attracting young fans, and having its best games end way past their bedtime is a huge issue.

    I’ll throw Tom Hicks and George Gillet in the mix for what they did to Liverpool.

    The thing is, the NFL often doesn’t make sense in what it does to cut back on defense and promote offense and points. Virtually every defensive penalty other than offsides/encroachment/neutral zone infraction is an auto 1st. The NFL will keep it just like it is to ensure offenses get every chance to score.

    Seriously. When you look at the QBs in Ravens history, he's on top and it's not even close. Only other ones that I can even think are significant are '06-'07 Steve McNair and '00 Trent Dilfer (LOL). I guess Testaverde in the early years was there too, but he didn't do anything significant IIRC.

    Absolutely not. Best QB in Ravens history? Absolutely. Playoff monster, especially in Foxboro? Big time. Part of several of the defining and most memorable moments in Ravens history? You bet. But HOF-caliber? No way. I was 100% joking. If he had carried his 2012/2014 form across these last couple of seasons it would be less of a joke. But his 2015-2017 form was quite frankly very poor, and a lot of that can be attributed to injury and poor receiving corps. Now that he’s healthy and has a respectable WR room, he’s doing alright again. I’ve defended Flacco pretty vigorously since he took over the starting job, just because I feel like he gets a lot of criticism here in Baltimore, some of it warranted, much of it not. He’s had tough circumstances to deal with but the bottom line is that the Ravens have had a respectable quarterback for over a decade in the modern NFL, which is very rare and I’m not sure how many people here realize how lucky we’ve been to have him for as long as we have. That 2012 playoff run will remain, rightfully, the stuff of legend. And the fact that he has the same amount of titles as Aaron Rodgers (and Russell Wilson and Drew Brees) is still hilarious.

    Was gonna say, how’d it take that long to get to him? This discussion begins and ends with Dan Snyder.

    It’s got to be. The only other one that came to mind was purple.

    Good to see nothing has changed about the Bengals. Crunch time is their kryptonite.

    How does one post a picture using the Imgur app? Whenever I select the copy link option in the app and try to paste it into the “Insert other media” -> “Insert image from URL”, it doesn’t accept it.

    “Awesome” and “nightmare fuel” aren’t mutually exclusive.
  23. I’m fairly certain he could find fault in the Browns winning the Super Bowl, so to a degree your point isn’t really valid. Although yes, it would be really freaking entertaining to watch that.

    Maybe it was all part of a grand plan. They knew Eli would suck this year so they would get another high draft pick and a shot at another franchise QB while still getting an all-world RB like Saquon.
