  1. Browns LB Anthony Walker is going to wear number 4. It looks like a few younger players asked about other numbers, but the Browns are letting veterans get first crack at it. https://twitter.com/BrownsByBrad/status/1405551735817506821?s=20 https://twitter.com/BrownsByBrad/status/1405552877439963140?s=20
  2. Each time I see this my brain thinks Matt Moore signed with the Jets to be their third string QB or something.
  3. Hurricanes still have a bit to go before they are legitimate Stanley Cup threats. I'm not sure where the team can be realistically upgraded when you consider their cap situation. It will be an interesting off-season with Dougie set to hit the open market. Nedeljkovic and Svechnikov will both be RFA's, and at the very least Svech should be in position for a long-term deal sooner rather than later. Necas will be a RFA after next season too, and he is a guy you also would prefer to keep and build around. Some tough decisions to be made, but it sure as hell beats missing the playoffs for the better part of a decade.
  4. I am fine with the delay of game penalty the way it currently is. When it is called against my team I am way more annoyed at the player committing the penalty than I am at the officials for calling it. I think the rule is more about the spirit of the game and at least making an effort to keep the puck in play. Even on an icing attempt the other team has a chance of intercepting the puck and keeping it in the offensive zone, or maybe it takes an odd bounce to avoid icing. If you just chuck the puck over the glass it prevents any of those possibilities and is a cheap way to get a quick breather. It should be penalized.
  5. Just think if they went with Warriors - then the "Warriors blew a 3-1 series lead in 2016" jokes would have double meaning.
  6. The Cavaliers work their tails off to keep it alive. Please give them the credit they deserve!
  7. Hurricanes Stadium Series leaked on Reddit?
  8. I cannot stress this enough. Anything Rock & Roll themed would be so corny and stupid.
  9. The good news: I will be in Raleigh on Thursday, so I will try to find a watch party to enjoy game 6 with other Canes fans. The bad news: I was really hoping there would not be a game 6.
  10. Just signed up too. Let me know if anything else is needed!
  11. Okay. So Mike Tomlin is at fault because his offense had five turnovers in a playoff game. It isn't the players fault AT ALL that they made mistake after mistake. It is all on the coach. That is the bar you have set moving forward with this conversation. Well dang. Maybe Payton should have come up with a better game plan and his team/defense would have played better! Because as you've pointed out, coaches are the ones that deserve all the blame - not the players on the field making mistakes. Carry on.
  12. Don't want to sidetrack this thread too much, but I just don't get "yinz" at all - especially when I hear it from someone in their 20's or 30's. Like I can maybe understand hearing it from an 80 year-old that lives in a South Side Slopes house passed down four generations...but if you're a 22-year old from Cranberry saying "yinz" you have to just be forcing it at that point.
  13. I think I know what you're hinting at... he doesn't like fries on his sandwiches!
  14. So you really think the Steelers should move on from a proven winning coach and dive into the world of unknown first-time head coaches? Or see if they get lucky with a retread?
  15. How? Having a competitive team and not posting a losing record for 14 straight years is very difficult to do in the NFL. Not to mention they've been in a division with another very consistent team during that span - the Ravens. It isn't like they are the Patriots of the last 20 years beating up on the Jets, Dolphins, and playoff-drought Bills. He has a .650 record in the regular season and a .500 record in the playoffs. I guess I don't see the problem? Playoff games mean you're playing some of the best teams in the league, they are not easy to win. I really can't believe I am defending a Steelers coach this much, but I will always give Tomlin his credit.
