To jump in the NFC North discussions, anyone find it odd that everyone is surprised by Greg Jennings saying that Aaron Rodgers is kind of a dick? Rodgers has always given off that vibe to me.

#146 7 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Its odd for sure, Jennings is a Viking now so by nature becomes a blithering idiot.

I like the vikings because of AD, but the games kind of suck to watch because that stadium is so dank and the rest of the team is awful.
The Packers I dislike because of Rodgers cause he's such a prick, unless I draft him then it's a treat

Bears have no redeeming qualities. Ugly uniforms, horrible players, Jay Cutler for god sakes.

#151 7 years ago
Quoted from Incognito:

Well, they DO dominate the Lions. Is that redeeming?

NO. Because that would infer that every team in the NFL is redeeming; which is false.

Quoted from trilogybeer:

Yeah the active role he's taken in the MAACC fund sure makes him seem like a total Ahole , I'm joking of coarse .

Roman Polanski was nice to kids too...think he's an asshole? I'm joking of course.

I never thought it was his fault. I think the position he's been in forever has just turned him into a dick to deal with the crap he's been in.

#153 7 years ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

Aaron Rodgers is not sexually attracted to the kids he helps , Not a good comparison.

How do you know? Wait...how old are you?

#156 7 years ago

Yeah he's your QB so you would probably see him diff'rent then me; I guess most players are like that. Well, I mean I'm a Steelers fan myself, and Rothlisburger is a complete asshole so that's a bad comparison

#163 7 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

Who cares?
I don't pick my favorite NFL teams or players based on whether or not they are "nice guys".

Obviously I thought it was interesting and brought it up. Your second part has nothing to do with what I was talking aboot anyway.

#165 7 years ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

Don't worry about it TheLaw , I understand You don't like the guy that was the MVP of the superbowl in which my favorite team defeated your favorite team .

Also being a Lions fan I disliked him before that...but it didn't help

You guys beat us fair and square that year. Congrats getting to 1 Super bowl in the last 18 years.

#167 7 years ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

That's 3 superbowls in the last 18 years , and the packers won 2 of those .

I went to a game in Green Bay When the Packers played the Lions had some nice Lions fans sitting next to me , Halfway through the game I bought them a beer it made their day slightly better .

DAMMIT I knew I should have gone with 13 years...that's what i get for not looking it up.

Yeah poor Lions fans...been a long road of sadness for them. It's a shame...don;t know if this year is going to change anything. They got some pieces but defence is always shit. You can have all the big "names" you want but when you give up the most pass yards per attempt like they have for the past 25 years you are going to lose.
One thing aboot Lions fans...they are very respectful and curtious. If they are beating you just ask them aboot it; "Oh don;t worry we'll blow it in the end."

#175 7 years ago
Quoted from DB62:

The Packers have won 13 world championships, which is wayyyyyy more than any other team! You can't just count Super Bowls ...

I understand your point, only because I live in Ann Arbor and have to hear aboot how UofM has won so many National Titles. I mean, sure a lot of them were won when there were 6 teams playing each other, and they've won 1 since I've been alive +25 years....and but I guess to a fan it's just as well.

Quoted from WileECoyote:

Was lucky enough to be there this past February. GO RAVENS!

Thumbed you down only because of Ravens
But going to a Super Bowl is pretty amazing stuff. And i don;t need to tell you, the price is worth IF you win

#211 7 years ago

Don;t worry they settled the concussion lawsuit for pennies so big hits are back baby!

#232 7 years ago

NFC North Packers
South Saints
East Cowboys
West 49ers
AFC West Broncos
South Texans
East Patriots
North Bengels

#239 7 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Cmon big fantasy points for RayRice tonite!!!

TD for ya.

Got Torry Smith going myself...only WR3 so not a big deal.

Wes Welker...bwawghawghawa

#241 7 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

I bet that TE for Denver will be a hot waiver pickup this next week wow, that dude is a monster.

Luckily I don;t play in a TE league so i don;t have to make that mistake.

EDIT: I also like, nay, love how Flacco got 120 million and now thinks he can throw a football. So cute.

#243 7 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Flacco is such a mystery,

I doubt it..which means it could be true. Flacco had an easy ride last year...certain(t)ly didn;t deserve 120 mills; What a joke.

#246 7 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

And Ed Reed, the Ravens are going to have a tough time this year without those 2 Hall of Famers.

And 5 other defensive starters. Worst SB ever last year...I mean baltimore's first SB was more boring but whatever

#249 7 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Although I thoroughly enjoyed watching the 49'ers losing

Me too. As a Steelers fan i must always route against teams with 4-5 SB victories.

#260 7 years ago

Leon Lett plays for the Broncos?

#263 7 years ago

This just in, Peyton Manning is a HOF QB, and Joe Flacco sucks.

#265 7 years ago

This also just in, Ravens Defense isn't good after losing 7 starters.

#414 7 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Talk about another team that looks unbelievably awful this year, wow! I guess its early enough for any team to rebound,

Steeler Nation reporting for duty Sir! The Steelers are bad but not as bad as you think...it's much worse. Knew this last year that Todd Haley would blow this team up. Total douche, everyone hates him, Tomlin passable coach AT BEST whom brought him in, recipe for the end. Unless big changes this team is dead for years to come. Coaches need to go...but Pitt so obsessed with having only 3 caoches since 69 probably wont happen.
Steelers turning into lions before my very eyes..I need 2 new teams.

#416 7 years ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

I heard the packers are accepting new fans .

Packers are weak sausage. I'm sensing a new NFC challenger coming up. Cause Sqwauks, Pack, & 49ers don't impress me much.

#421 7 years ago
Quoted from jesster64:

Rothlesberger is damn tough to bring down. If he gets injured though, then stick a fork in them, but as long as he's healthy, still a threat.

He's a threat when the offense is set up for it. He does a couple things REALLY well; long bombs, extending the play, buying time. Haley offense is the exact opposite of all those things...horrible.

#443 6 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

Couldn't agree more.
I can't believe Haley is still there. Horrible is right.

I found it pretty obvious last night that the offense started picking up when they were down so far and Rothlisberger just started calling his own plays.

I appreciated the low key knock on Haley from the announcers also. When speaking aboot the Bears coaching staff "using the teams already established verbage instead of installing his own; Veteran's appreciate that." Which of course was the well documented opposite of what Haley did.

#445 6 years ago

I picked Minn and paid for it. SF/GB are shaky to me, more SF though. "Sophmore slump" doesn;t seem to be a term used anymore but I still look out for it. GB wasn't that bad because Bengels are for real.

#469 6 years ago
Quoted from RWH:

Denver-vs-Cincy for the AFC Championship!!!! WHO DEY

Wouldn't shock me. Ciny D is legit and AJ cannot be stopped.

#473 6 years ago
Quoted from kwiKimart:

Going to the game, and I have to pick SD.

Pick them because they are your team or by coin flip. These 2 teams, anything could happen. 12 TDs, 12 INTs, 3 FGs only...no clue.

#479 6 years ago
Quoted from RWH:

Andy Dalton looked absolutely horrible! He cost the Bengals the game in my opinion.

This Hoyer QB might be the real deal though.

#481 6 years ago
Quoted from tilt-master:

He just might be. Too bad they don't have a running game, if only the Browns had a quality RB.

I hear what you're saying but even with Ravens/Pitt on the down and Bengels on the rise...Browns don't have enough to go deep this year. Better to stock picks for the future. Brownies classic HORRIBLE decisions, but I like these. Getting Holmgrin in was just awful and they have to recover from that.

#483 6 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

Great victory for the Bolts, but if only they could play that well against a quality opponent.

Yeah they beat Romo...amazing!

I mean yeah it's all aboot wins.

#501 6 years ago

I can't see anyway the Lions win...but if they do that's gunna be a major deal.

#505 6 years ago
Quoted from tilt-master:

Really? If the Lions don't beat themselves,

Do you need me to keep going?

#510 6 years ago
Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

After starting out 0 - 2, they could have just layed down for the rest of the season to get better draft picks for next year. But they didn't.

Yeah well, that's a dumb idea. They have had a ton of draft picks, *cough* most of which high "blue chip" people and they have still sucked. Division is sooooo weak this year; do some damage and make some stink.

1 week later
#555 6 years ago
Quoted from RWH:

Ready for some FOOTBALL!!!!!! One of my best, or worst days, depending on the outcome! WHO DEY!!!!!!

Buffalo is a squirlly team but Bengals shouldn't have a problem; although the red rocket needs to step it up.

#557 6 years ago

My only prediction is AD is going to have 200+ yards and 4 tds.

#580 6 years ago
Quoted from TomGWI:

Joe Montana has 4 SB rings and 2 MVPs and never lost in a SB.

Eventhough 2 of them are against the Bengals, I agree with you.

#639 6 years ago
Quoted from Finrod:

Man, I've been avoiding this thread since my Steelers kept losing. But finally they got rid of that goose egg and perhaps they can still make something of this season.

Only by completely going around Todd Haley's pathetic offense. I've already written this season off, just utterly sad.

#644 6 years ago
Quoted from jrrdw:

Where are you getting that from? We are doing better then Pittsburgh both at home and away.

Whoa I didn't notice till just now they are playing on Thanksgiving...gobble gobble!

#646 6 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

I was expecting to see more discussion about the Chargers win over the Colts.

I don't personally know any sports fan that likes Costas. Why is that baffoon considered a great sports journalist? He's always bringing politics into sports.

Nobody really cares aboot the Bolts, and the Colts are doing much better than everyone thought.
Bolts can go either way, but they can never do any real damage, they're a non story.
Colts I don't know what to think of. I'm not ready to crown there ass after the first 1/3 of the season.

Costas is a HORRIBLE. Keep him on the Olympics, and keep Joe Buck in baseball.

#651 6 years ago
Quoted from tilt-master:

Why do I have a feeling they Chargers could be a real Darkhorse this season?

Hmmm...maybe because you're not factoring in the are .500 team, have basically 1 good win, and have to play the 2 6-0 teams in there division 4 more times this season?

#661 6 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

Maybe Costas should stop being Costas.

Start the kickstater and send me the link.

#4281 5 years ago

Uff...not even thru the first quarter and the term "gingerly" has been used...hoped they would retire it.

#4283 5 years ago
Quoted from perryd:

Not even 1 quarter gone, and the Pats are up to usual tricks....Steelers headsets/communications not working....Geesshhh!!

Well they're obviously doing that on purpose...I'll give them that one...classic!

#4285 5 years ago
Quoted from pezpunk:

I got made fun of for taking a TE in the first round of my fantasy league. Who's laughing now??

You are laughing...at the complete idiots in your league. Whom the fuck wouldn't take Gronk in the first round?

#4288 5 years ago
Quoted from pezpunk:

12th overall pick, too. Stole him!

Jesus in a 12 team league....that makes it even less of a choice.

#4292 5 years ago
Quoted from John_I:

Impressive night for the Pats defense. As the season wears on I think the Steeler's offense is going to be consistently scoring a lot more points than they did tonight.

Wasn't impressive for either team. Both have little defense, and tons of offense. Old news we knew that coming in.

#4300 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Arodge 2 Cobb, the most beautiful Td pass a man can ever watch.

Such a weird game. Cutler pisses it away at the end? Whom could have seen that coming?

Totally worth that 15M+

#4328 5 years ago
Quoted from tilt-master:

Seahawks really could have used Chancellor today. Shows what a great team player he is holding out with 3 years (yes, 3 years!) left on his deal. I still dispise Cuntler more but Chancellor is creeping up quickly regarding douchebaggery.

Maybe maybe not. Rams always play Sqwauks tough.

#4330 5 years ago
Quoted from tilt-master:

Very true........... Kam's still a douchebag

Gotta friend in Seattle (originally from NE so WTF is that) and we always talk aboot StL looks like world beates against Seattle, and then the rest of the season they suck. Just a weird division thing.

#4332 5 years ago

Charles Woodson may have blown out his knee for Oak. I repeat, Charles Woodson is still playing in the NFL.

That is all

#4336 5 years ago
Quoted from Astropin:

I was going to make a post when the Lions were up 21-3......but a little voice in my head said "you better wait".

it takes 30 minutes to go from SBL to SOL.

4 months later
#6083 4 years ago

As a Steelers fan I loved watching Squawks & Packers get fucked hard...at least Steelers fan see this coming

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I think that speaks more to the organization and depth of the Seahawks. One could argue that Lynch has been the best RB in the NFL the 4 years leading up to this year.

I guess in Seattle they could argue that.

#6085 4 years ago
Quoted from dmbjunky:

Broncos receivers can't catch a cold.

Amazing PITT is still in this. Donkies should be up large by now.

#6104 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

I hear the steeler fans wear gloves when they play pinball, pretty douchey.

Just like the team, we're trying to cover all our championship rings.

#6121 4 years ago

Man I forget when I get that pissed drunk I start gaining SB rings

I don't think Denvers D is good enough to stop Pats, even though they don't play well there. I believe in the Panthers though

#6136 4 years ago
Quoted from Erik:

Any predictions where Kaepernick,

Kap isn't going anywhere. Chip might let him run which he's good at instead of shoe-horning into a Harbaugh Jr. and ruining his career.

#6143 4 years ago
Quoted from dmbjunky:

Chip likes an accurate passer as well. They may keep him to try it but I'd say they'll end up going a different direction as well.

Chip is also fucking crazy, so agreed we have no idea where he's going.
But the "accuracy" thing doesn't mean much here.

Foles 60.2 comp
Bradford 60.1
Kapernick 59.9

#6231 4 years ago

Missed XP, not going for FG all had something to do with it, but really the Pats O-line was just beaten like a high school team.
Everyone knows the only thing that rattles Brady in any way is getting no time to do anything, and that defense was just crushing the O-line like no ones business. No time to throw, no offense, end of story.

#6235 4 years ago


Quoted from o-din:If Denver sticks to their guns and plays their game then Carolina may have a hard time running away with it like they did yesterday. But it only takes a couple big plays for it to get out of hand early. Panther's D is pretty good too. I'm just going to sit back and watch it.

Yeah it could go either way. I can see these guys just keeping Cam in the pocket and closing in on him, or I can see Cam hopping up and running for 10 yards every play.

My guess is Panthers but you know damn well all the calls are going to go Broncos way.

#6245 4 years ago

I did bet on Carolina at the start of the playoffs to win it all...so they do have that working agianst them.

1 week later
#6253 4 years ago
Quoted from SteveO:

Did anyone actually watch the Pro Bowl? It's easily the worst of all of the pro sports all star games.

Ha I watched the NHL one instead in the background...but that's because I didn't even know it was on.

I actually liked the old way it was after the SB. To me it made more sense as "Football Lite" after the season was totally over, and there was nothing left to do but have some pointless fun.

I think the NHL had the most watchable game now with the 3on3 brackets they changed to. Basketball/Baseball I just hate anyway .

#6258 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

I don't know if I'm even excited for the SB......I guess I'm rooting Broncos. Elway will look like a fucking genius dumping fox to bring in kubiak

I'm excited....old school versus new school. BUT...I'm not routing for one side really...sometimes that makes it better. I mean I was routing for Manning the last time so my night was shit after 14 seconds.

#6269 4 years ago

The worse halftime show the better, that's when we head down to play the pins.

And continue the cash games of "Road Runner." That has to be the goddamned hardest game in the world...worse than Sinistar.

#6291 4 years ago

Lot to catch up on...Dierdorffer is fucking horrible. Put him with Denise Miller & Joe Theisman's pompus ass as just unlistenable. Buck & Gruden have grown on me to the point I don't want to rip my ears off.
What Tony Sargayusa is doing in a football game is still a mystery to me...fucking Jay Feely, KICKING ANALYST makes more sense; which is unimaginable. Tirico is good, Ann Arbor guy without Dierdorfers UofM shit. Collinsworth is still decent but went down a rung or 2 when he was shilling for the league on the ray rice thing

#6294 4 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

I think Phil Simms does a pretty good job. He keeps it mellow.

I like Simms & Nance a lot...may be my favorite. Like Eagle & Fouts a lot too.

I'd have to bow to you since I don't remember Dandy Don, but aren't all these hillbilly announcers just playing the role of him these days?

#6305 4 years ago
Quoted from jayhawkai:

How are you guys betting the Puppy Bowl?

What's a puppy bowel?


#6413 4 years ago

All the commercials sucked like they do every year...other than the Weiner Dog one.

#6415 4 years ago

Ha that one was a little strange. Later Doritoes had one with Dogs in it and I thought some puppies were going to shoot out early.

#6418 4 years ago
Quoted from BillySastard:

Why is that funny? He's the NFL MVP and he completely dominated the field this past year except for the SB.

Yeah he's a bit of a baby, but he also got jacked up by the best Defense in the league that just smacked down Brady before this

#6423 4 years ago

This was the best reviewed at my house...and I dislike dogs.

The babymonkey thing gets remembered for being unstteling, I'll give it that.
Last years might have been the worst.

#6424 4 years ago

Oh sorry if I missed it mentioned, but was the only one turned on by the intestine ad?

#6428 4 years ago
Quoted from Erik:

....and being aroused by intestines should be automatic threadban...

I'll never apologize for that!!!

#6452 4 years ago
Quoted from rai:

You guys think Shady McCoy does any jail time? He can ask Mike Vick for some pointers. Or do you think this is a civil case?

We'll see. I need all the facts in before I think one way or the other. This just in, "off duty police officers" are just people, and they can be assholes too.

#6454 4 years ago
Quoted from rai:

That's true. He's lucky he didn't get shot.

Yeah...HE'S the lucky one. Football players & their entourages aren't known for carrying weapons

#6457 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Is the Draft here yet?
Flank's Girlfriend

Super Bowl on Sunday, then a the next Sunday Valentine's Day...jesus talk aboot the dream being over man!

#6463 4 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

Got to watch that first Giants/ Patriots super bowl condensed version on NFL Networks football withdrawl weekend marathon on Saturday. I was too tired to change the channel. Man those Giants put an ass-wooping on the Patriots that day. The final score doesn't really show it but they sure dominated!

I watch that the other day as well and it was funny how horrible/great Eli is at the end. Half the time he looks like he's just giving up and throwing INTs on purpose, but then they end up winning.

I don't think I mentioned this in the thread before, but i watched the condensed version of the first Cin/SF SB, and it's very interesting. I always liked it because there are not a lot of SF names on the team yet, but watching it now, 90% of the catches made are not catches in todays NFL

#6465 4 years ago

Yep Silverdome.

So Montana, Lott, Clark...those are huge SF names of course. The only other person I know is Randy Cross.

#6476 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Wasn't Charles Haley on those teams? He must be in the hall of fame....

Yeah he was on the later teams which I'm sure we know all the players.

#6583 4 years ago

Pacman is a damn fine player and growns up since his troubles.

#6586 4 years ago
Quoted from rai:

Isn't this the same Pacman Jones who contacted a ref to set up the game losing FG?
Seems to me he's not all grown up.

Yeah well I'm a Steelers fan so I hope he's even more mature this year

But honestly, you can't just single Pacman out in that game; the entire team from head to toe melted down because they have a horrible coach. The Game was ALREADY OVER before the pacman penalty...so thank Vontaze for that

Quoted from centerflank:

Lol, do you even watch any football? You and Whysnow should do a podcast on the NFL

Sorry this stuff happened in a non GB game so you're probably not the guy to talk to aboot it.

#6587 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Lol, do you even watch any football? You and Whysnow should do a podcast on the NFL

I tried to talk him into it but he has some "exciting business opportunities" as of late.

#6594 4 years ago
Quoted from fosaisu:

If he was only going to get one, you have to admire his restraint in waiting for the worst possible moment.

Boswell is a good long distance kicker, kkick would have been 50 though.

Quoted from centerflank:

Remember when the Packers beat the Steelers in the Super Bowl a few years ago? That was the bestest game ever!

Kevin Lanflisi, is that you?

Yeah I remember it as the Steelers had just won it 2 seasons before that. Sadly, I knew that would happen...Pit had awful secondary that year and Rodgers was on the top of his game.

Quoted from timtim:

Its great being a browns fan.

Browns fans should only be allowed to talk aboot Jim Brown in this thread

#6596 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Are Browns fans able to discuss the golden era of Tim Crouch?

It's Tim Couch...please show some respect....or a moment of silence.

Well he was a better pick that Whedon, Quinn, & Manzell. Ha...they should open a shitty law firm in Cleveland.

#6599 4 years ago
Quoted from dmbjunky:

I'm not sure you can say better unless your metric is what number he was picked. Yes he was picked first overall.

Well Mr Nitpicky my "metrics" are the standard Qb metrics...you know, passing, completions, tds, game played etc etc.

#6601 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Can he be Captain Nitpicky? We need more pretend captains on pinside

No he can't...now let me tell you exactly why he can't in a long drawn on post....

#6619 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Olivia plays a mutant so anything is possible.

She also plays a pretty convincing beard it would seem.

#6623 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

I don't know, how is it working for you with your lady?

Well everyone in my town knows she's just a beard...that's the diff'rence.

#6625 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

What's the diff whether he is into chicks or dudes, what business is it of ours?

Ha...a serious centerflank...fucking hilarious.

#6628 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

We should start a thread to find out everyone's sexual orientation on Pinside....

Well that's pretty obvious and doesn't need a thread because everyone here is a nobody. Ms. Rodgers is the only important "thing" as I cannot have my unborn child looking up to such disgustingness.

Or any Packer for that matter.
Or Lion

Quoted from centerflank:

Or maybe find out more about how many girls Raplistberger assaulted....

That's of no concern as it does not involve the LGBT community...that isn't even considered "news" these days

#6630 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

What's the disgustingness you speak of? Please elaborate.

I think if you read it again it's pretty obvious.

#6632 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

What, say it all, don't hold your hate back. Elaborate, I really want to hear it.

Do you think I've turned from super liberal to super conservative overnight or something? So little faith...I;ve never seen you so worked up before...kind of sexy.
Edit: Well you do get worked up at whysnow I guess.

#6634 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Let this be the last time you bring up sexual orientation or your political beliefs.

Oh finally...another Pinside Captain

I'm just happy all these Browns players don't have staph infections.

#6670 4 years ago
Quoted from SteveO:

I don't follow college football too much but are those two quarterbacks really worth trading all those draft picks? It seems to me the Browns and Titans made out on both trades.

I DO follow College football and still have no ideas whom these dudes are; seriously.

Yeah I read that last week...worth a look for people that haven't read it.

#6738 4 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

I say Bengals v Pack Super Bowl. See you there Flank.

I can easily see another PIT/CIN Wildcard match up. The Bengels will be much better next year and will probably be up 21 points in the 3rd. Of course they are the Bungels, the most horribly coached team in history (excluding the Lions that's a given), and Marvin Lewis will have the team hit the showers thinking the game is over and lose by forfit.

#6741 4 years ago
Quoted from RWH:

this year coupled with a good draft this year I can't see us not going to the playoffs.

HAHA...I love you guys. You're like the Ohio version of lions fans. Well actually I guess that might be Cleveland.

#6743 4 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Um at least the bengals make the playoffs consistently. Yes, lions fans are closer to Cleveland fans. Actually the Clev fans I know know that Clev is hopeless. Didn't realize DET fans were so delusional.

Well it's a little in the middle. Browns are WAY WORSE of a franchice/team than Lions. Cleveland fans know their team is horrible before the season starts; lions fans take a couple games before they give up.

Bungholes have been better in the last decade than Lions...but both have zilch to show for it. They both have the issue of being in strong divisions.

I love me some Bengel helmets though.

#6745 4 years ago
Quoted from RWH:

Bengals record speaks for itself. Yes we've lost two SB's and a shitload of playoff games since......but that's about to change. The wagons rolling brother, jump on while you still can....

I ain't hating on your enthusiasms, but alas my wagon has been hooked to the Steelers my whole life.
Just look at that luck...Bengels get 2 SBs and both against Montana...uff.

#6749 4 years ago
Quoted from RWH:

The Steelers are still a great team but their success rest almost exclusively on Big Ben's shoulders and that may come to haunt them soon. He's been in the league for awhile and that meaning is double when you consider our division as a whole; the AFC North is in my opinion the toughest division in the NFL. Even with Cleveland's woes over the past few seasons there are no gimmie games to be had.

Great QBs are hard to replace....Steelers making that easier in the future by having a stacked WR core, sans suspensions. But obviously I don't want to even imagine when he's gone. Because I lived through Stoud, Malone, Brister, Maddox, Slash...etc etc...rough times.
Browns are nobody, a total Joke, They have 1 player that could be the best WR in the history of football, but he's pissing it all away.

#6751 4 years ago

And Manzel probably "only" got like 4 million...he's drinking through that right away. Josh Gordon a little less and WTF he's doing no one knows. Manzel was a clown...had as much chance as Brady Quinn to be a decent player...but Gordon is unreal.

#6754 4 years ago
Quoted from SteveO:

Is Gordon's suspension up this year? He has burned my fantasy teams a few times but what a talent. If he could only get his act together. Same for Justin Blackman.

Um I thought he was out all this year? Maybe not though at a quick look. Talk aboot boom or bust...every game he's not suspended he gets 200 yards in

#6759 4 years ago
Quoted from RWH:

Question of the season: With all the players being suspended for drug policy violations, will the first 5 games of the season in reality amount to more than a prolonged preseason?

Ha good point. That's probably going to be the sales pitch that finally moves the season up to 18 or more games; "What does it matter guys, all your players are suspended anyway so they can't get injured."

#6761 4 years ago
Quoted from SteveO:

Did anyone see Any Given Wednesday on HBO?

God no; I'll never watch that thing. Bill Simmons CAN write a decent story here and there, but he has ZERO on screen talent; it's so bad.

#6766 4 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Who else has some predictions other than predicting against mine? haha.

Steelers will be on fire this year and defeat an 'unknown' Division 'rival;' again in the playoffs like always.

#6768 4 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Haha. Wanna make a friendly wager on who finishes with the best record? Steelers or Bengals?

I see you're trying to pull some standard Bengels shananigins here. This shows me that even you think the bunguls will have a better record but lose to the Wild Card Steelers

I'd rather have further in the playoffs first factor, then record if possible. But I'll leave it up to you. I'm in for whichever.

#6770 4 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Bet changed to I bet the Bengals make the playoffs, and the Steelers miss the playoffs.


Now, see we're sittin' down here, ready to negotiate, and you've already given up your shit.

Cutler has been a steady improvement on his head game and he has the physical ability.

Cutler's a fucking joke.

#6779 4 years ago

Cutlers won more playoff games than Dalton, just sayin, lol

Yes when you 10 year QB is "a little better than Andy Dalton" you know you're screwed.

#6781 4 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

only choice I have is to be optimistic.

Noo I live around/and sort of am, a Lions fans and they don't lie to themselves for too long.

GB wins division easy, SEA/ARZ split 1 wildcard...chances are slim right off the bat. Although I'm not thinking of any other teams off hand.

#6787 4 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

if he does not return by the start of the preseason then I think by default The law take over as thread OP

That'll get'em back right quick!

Plus KPG is back so maybe that will help.

#6792 4 years ago
Quoted from dmbjunky:

People complain about Dalton's postseason record but that doesn't bother me. I'm pretty sure not all of those losses were his fault.

Actually it's pretty goddamn bad playoff wise....


...but I somewhat agree with you. Looks like he was going to cure his demon's until the worst coaching staff in the league pulled their usual meltdown.

#6795 4 years ago
Quoted from dmbjunky:

I looked at Peyton's numbers and his first three years were pretty bad as well. It wasn't until year four when he got his first win and actually played well. So he's in good company.

None of those numbers add up or mean anything, but you got a gut feeling and I can't blame you there.

#6797 4 years ago

..Rodger's constant whining and complaining i Also think McCarthy is overrated a...

These are all personal matters you have with the team that DO NOT factor into what they do; trust me I know. Aaron rodgers is a punk, and a douche (flank perks up) we all know that, and McCarthy is a fucking nobody making shit ass calls to lose games more than Rex Ryan (Flank is seething!) but they got a good team in a shithole division and showing up they can win or get a wildcard

#6811 4 years ago
Quoted from str8cash:

I think the Vikings will win the division this year that's all.

Shit I guess they won last year didn't they?! Fair enough

Quoted from Jaybird815:

Yeah, Williams did a good job filling in last year. The funny thing is he didn't get suspended for a failed test, he didn't even show up for it, lol

Neil Fucking O'Donnel's 2 picks in SB XXX

#6898 4 years ago
Quoted from dmbjunky:

Can you elaborate? Were they terrible picks or not his fault? I have no memories of that Super Bowl or who even played. I know O'Donnel was a Steelers QB.

Steelers/Cowboys and they were totally the worst INTs ever...like everyone kind of believes he was paid off. Steelers had a real chance in a decade when AFC hadn't done jack.

Exhibit A 1:10
Exhibit B 1:45

I mean...wow

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Worst moment - still has to be palmers injury even though this past playoff game was brutal.

I went to the Cin/Det game that year in my Steelers swag...Who Dey nation was pumped that year talking shit to me...they paid for it with Palmers knee

#6901 4 years ago

3 Rings is an easy in. Hell, for good trivia there's only 1 QB not in the hall with 2 SB wins...

#6930 4 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Wanna make another bet? James Harrison in the two games against the bengals this year will have no sacks, no INTs, and less than 10 tackles per game.
40 quarters.

40 quarters...Ok so we're not counting the Playoff win for Pitt...that's fine by me.


#6932 4 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Haha. Good one, but yes only reg season counts.
Also our other bet is bengals make playoffs and steelers don't for another 40 quarters right?

Correct all around.

only choice I have is to be optimistic. He has steadily improved in the head case department. Last years QB coach is now the O coach so that is good. Bears made some decent moves in off season and hopefully Kevin White comes back strong.

Quoted from mcluvin:

I have no idea how "fantasy" talk is killing this thread unless some just really like to bitch. Even then, it's satisfying the need to bitch, so WTF? Aren't you happy having something to bitch about? Participating in a fantasy league has made the regular season a lot more interesting to me.

Fantasy is up and down. I remember a championship I won when Warren Moon to Joey Galloway was monies in the bank.
I remember when Eric Rhett held out and blew my 1st round pick (I'll wait whilst you look that one up).
There's a simple truth to Fantasy Football; it's great playing it, but I don't give a shit aboot your team tough tits.
But actually you're right, I don't mind your team or talking fantasy , just when I have to scroll down through everyone's obnoxious fucking pictures of their line-ups taking half a page gets a little annoying. Oh wait...everyone doesn't do it, just you.

#7249 3 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Is Bill Belichick the best coach ever?

There's not even a question; and I hate him & the Pats. Unless you give a ton of credit for inventing new systems and things, what he's done in the cap era is unreal.

#7263 3 years ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

I've got Ebron as my starting TE

Haha and you're trying to talk shit to me?

Quoted from chuckwurt:

They've been good since 2000. Has any other franchise even come close to that amount of success?

the Steelers obviously...and the Pats have put them down in a couple of championships games. The thing that makes him so good is he's just a total dick. Run up the score, dirty players/plays, all players questionable, using weird rules just to use them; I mean its the greatest thing ever. The thing I really wonder is how good is Brady without Bellicheck.
Oh And the Colts before Mannning left...man i tell you I don;t know what Andrew luck is. Sometimes he;s everything they say he is, other times he just looks completely horrible like manziel level. The O-line can't be THAT bad?

#7270 3 years ago
Quoted from SteveO:

I would have bet on the Texans winning last night and they got spanked.

That's why no one gets rich betting on the NFL; so hard. Been in knock out pools for years and know a lot aboot the NFL, lose every year to people that know nothing

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I'll look up some more stats today as a fun Friday project. The Steelers have been great too in the Big Ben era, but they are in a tier below the pats for sure.

Yeah Steelers certain(t)ly have those fall off seasons, and garbage after SB seasons.


#7272 3 years ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

Well he probably will be a better choice than Bennett who I switched to at the last moment. I'll at least take a little comfort in knowing they tried to toss Bennett a touchdown.

Take it from someone in Michigan, Ebron is never a better choice unless you leave an empty slot...and then it's a coin flip.

#7274 3 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Steelers missed the playoffs 5 times and didn't have winning records for 4 of them.

yup & as you know steelers in much much harder division

#7280 3 years ago
Quoted from Erik:

Who else is super excited about a potential Edelman-as-Qb next week?

Well he wouldn't be a WR if he started at QB, so no sneaky 2 Qbs starting that week. I'm def excited to see if bellicheck does it...seems too wacky even for him but I'm sure it wouldn't shock any of us.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

The AFC north did have multiple teams make it into the playoffs more than the AFC east, but I honestly don't think the division matters when talking about he patriots.

They basically have a division with 3 Cleveland Browns for fuck sakes! Other than the couple years Rex Ryan made the Jets good; still blows my mind.

#7282 3 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

He would be listed as a WR, meaning you could put him in a WR spot. So yeah, you could start two QBs.

I'm not sure aboot that. He's listed as a WR now, but if he started as a QB he might be designate that way?
Edit: I guess it would just come down to how your individual league lists him. In the game he would be a qb, but fantasy wise its up to them. Ha, new WB position

#7287 3 years ago
Quoted from Ronnie1114:

WR crisis on my team! Who should I start, Jarvis Landry, Mike Wallace, or Brandon Marshall? Marshall is questionable but usually plays through most pain.

I'm starting Wallace...so you probably want to stay away from him

Quoted from tilt-master:

Yahoo, CBS sports, NFL.com would need to change his designation (and they can't once a season starts). I've never seen a commissioner setting that can do that.

I seriously doubt they couldn't do it during the year, it's just never happened before. But yeah I couldn't change a players position on CBS, not that I would.

#7290 3 years ago

Fair enough def wrong on this one

The NFL sends us an updated list of every player's position eligibility, including rookies, prior to the start of each season. "

Didn't think it would be that big of a deal but it is. Good point I didn't even think of the roster restrictions for players as my league doesn't have one.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Not sure if the bengals home opener could've gone any worse. Time for them to really see what they are capable of and shake this off on a short week.

Hill did awesome for me & they lost, great opener

Don't have any stats but it seems like a lot of Safeties happening this year?

#7292 3 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

Gotta admire the packers for being well versed in stupid NFL rules. Sad that is what it takes, but admire that they did the time to know the rules. Guessing that one will be changed next year.

2 things I never give professionals credit for;
1. Knowing the rules of the job they get paid millions for
2. Beating the Lions

#7296 3 years ago

haha don;t screw with a kicking net tough guy!

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

So every QB in history who has dropped off at 40 - which is pretty much all of them - was a drunk and a poor eater?

Crazy I just looked up Montana, whom was 38-39 when he retired. Remember how old he looked? And he had 2 years off basically.
