  1. I'm not sure what all the hype is about, it's not like the guy is some kinda world beater. Take a look at his and Knox's rookie years: Njoku: 32 receptions for 386 yards (12.1 yards per catch) and 4 touchdowns. Knox: 28 receptions for 388 yards (13.9 yards per catch) and 2 touchdowns. His second season, Njoku caught 56 passes for 639 yards (11.4 yards per catch) and another 4 TDs. Last season he played in four games (started only one) and had 5 catches for 41 yards and one TD. I'd say with the promise Knox has shown he can have a sophomore season just as good or better than what Njoku did his sophomore year. So, nah, I don't see any reason to give up anything for this dude.
  2. I heard them going off as late as 1 AM last night. Heard plenty of fire truck sirens as well so someone maybe woke up sans a few fingers today. Also, lighting them off at 2 in the afternoon, what's the point? You can't really see it. There was also the house at the end of my street that set up some contraption two inches off the road, and then it was shooting up little bangers one after the other, as I'm driving by the house, no one is even outside to make sure it doesn't fly into someone's car, or even someone's house across the street or whatever. "Yeah, let's light these off and then go somewhere else!" Dummies.
  3. Yeah, happy fourth. Is it just me or does anyone else find it odd we celebrate America's independence with explosions that sound like a war? I feel bad for vets and pets, man. My one cat keeps zipping to the far end of the house until he hears something on that side and zips back out. Neighbor's dog upstairs is barking like a maniac and even I jump here and there when the next house over lights off a buncha loud ones.
  4. I'd like to see them go with those throwback uniforms that have a darker burgundy and gold numbers. And with the throwback helmet too. Like this:
  5. Meh. I think they'll be alright. Barkley isn't too bad. And Fromm seems like he can pick up on a scheme pretty good. If he had to go in, they would probably be a bit limited in terms of how deep into the playbook they can go, as is the case with any young quarterbacks. Josh is a big fella. And all reports this off-season are that he's beefed up and ready to go. https://giphy.com/gifs/southparkgifs-l0HlNsqRcBSNInrzO Edit: I'll be a buttmonkey's uncle if I can remember how to make gifs appear in posts. Dapgummit! Can someone remind me? Thanks.
  6. I dunno, vengeance is a fun word, I guess. They surpassed the Phins and Pats as the AFCE team I despise the most when they hired that googily-eyed jerkface Wahdam Gase.
  7. I thought Hopkins was going to be named the starter and then he got hurt which led to them signing Carpenter, who kicked well enough that they'd stuck with him even when Hopkins was cleared.
  8. I thought he was all in with them and was the rah rah guy that the team rallies behind? I think he's a pretty good player but probably not worth the money he's gonna end up demanding. Adam Gase, man. I know nothing has really been said about why Adams wants a trade but I'd be willing to bet granpappy's old nickel sock that he's not real keen on Gase. That guy is a tool of epic proportions. Either way... Good. I hate the GD Jets. They've surpassed the Pats in terms of my unbridled hatred and vengeance! You're going down, Spleen Darnold! Down like a sweet muffin!
  9. Yep. I mean, I like the guy, he's a good redemption story and he clearly works hard. But man, last season much of this board was in a fever pitch to get him on the field and all I could think was, if he's as good as everyone thinks he is then he'd be out there already. He came up big in the Titans game and had a few other stick-moving catches but beyond that I felt like he was just another guy. I'd assume Gabe Davis takes over as the "size" receiver this year. You...you monster! Nah, I like A1 and I'm always getting crap for it.
  10. Yowza, that's rough. Glad he's alright. A 99% blockage almost sent my old man to the great beyond back in '09.
  11. I wanna see a full season just as much as the next fan, but the closer we get to September, the less faith I have that it's gonna happen. If the so called leadership in this country had taken this thing seriously from the start then we'd likely be much further along. Other countries that acted quickly in ordering quarantine and then requiring masks have got their cases under control. It's kind of a travesty that one of the world's leading countries is in a mess like this. Many deaths could've been prevented, and I was just dumbfounded how some healthcare workers had to use trash bags and whatnot because PPE wasn't being provided. Unacceptable. And now it seems like the country is in a rush to "get back to normal" with a multitude of people who don't wanna follow any preventative measures and so cases are spiking again and it just doesn't seem like they're close to getting a real handle on this stuff. I mean, they cancelled all concerts, festivals, shows, carnivals, fairs, in addition to almost every sport for the rest of the year yet they're saying, "It's cool to go back to work, don't worry about it. But only work and then straight home!" Aside from grocery shopping there isn't a whole lot to do so a nation full of people with very few outlets for after-work activities is gonna become even more disgruntled, or so it would seem. I don't know what's gonna happen but looking at it right now, it seems like it's gonna be really difficult to make a season happen.
  12. Smith deserves a lot of credit for putting together the career he's had given the fact that he had a new offensive coordinator every season for like his first, like six years or something? When given a chance to settle in with the same coaches and players like he did in KC he showed that he's solid.
  13. John Harbaugh's butthole probably just clenched up enough to poop a diamond.
