  1. Not in the first half. He was slow to react and often picked the wrong hole to fill. He's had more than a few slow starts. But his second half improvements have been very encouraging...
  2. Beating a team with a winning record this season would be 'that game' for me...
  3. Ravens look much more formidible than the Bills right now. That 12/8 game will be really interesting...
  4. IIRC, Allen was 6 of 15 for 90 yards in the first half. I doubt his QBR was anything to write home about over those 30 minutes. The whole point of that NFL.com post is that Allen is inconsistent, but comes up big at the end. Same thing this board says all the time...
  5. What's innaccurate about that take today? Allen's game IS unpredictable, which is the gist of what the guy is saying...
  6. Pretty accurate assessment...
  7. OK. Tin Man, The Fins have no chance of winning this game, Totto...
  8. Strawman. The Fins are perhaps the worst NFL team in two decades, if not longer (guess who that last data point on this graph is)...
  9. The Fins are on a record-breaking pace on that metric...
  10. And the lack of talent infusion from 2017-19 is starting to show on the field. Two more years of that and they'll be just another also-ran...
  11. Multiple reasons: https://dc.fandom.com/wiki/Jack_Napier Jack Napier is an alter-ego associated with the Joker, sometimes used as the character's real name. This is a tribute to the actors Jack Nicholson and Alan Napier. It has been used by several incarnations of the Joker, although usually as an alias and not a secret identity. The "Jack Napier" identity was created by Sam Hamm and Warren Skaaren for the Batman film (1989). https://dcmovies.fandom.com/wiki/Jack_Napier Jack Napier was the narcissistic right-hand man of Boss Carl Grissom. Napier was having an affair with Grissom's girlfriend, Alicia Hunt, prompting the jealous crime lord to set his right-hand man up to be killed by the corrupt police officer Lt. Eckhardt at Axis Chemicals. However, Grissom's plan went awry thanks to intervention by both Batman and Commissioner James Gordon. After killing Eckhardt and then catching a ricocheted bullet in the face, Napier tumbled into a vat of chemicals. Although Napier survives, the chemicals wreak a horrible toll: his hair is dyed green, his skin is bleached chalk white, and a botched attempt at reconstructive surgery severs critical facial nerves, leaving him with an eternal "smile". The Joker After his mind completely snapped after seeing his smile, he assumes his new identity as the Joker, he kills Grissom as revenge ("You set me up over a woman".) and takes over the gangster's empire, engaging in a violent, chaotic crime spree, the motive being to "outdo" Batman, who he feels was getting too much press. He also tries to woo Gotham Globe reporter Vicki Vale. When Bruce Wayne learns about the Joker, he recalls that his parents were murdered by Jack Napier, realizing that the Joker is indirectly responsible for the origin of Batman.
