  1. Westeros Experts League 2016

    Yeah, based on last year's results think Pyro gets the nod. That said think either of you would be a great addition to Experts. And don't lose hope - you're first on the waitlist if anyone drops out. That ain't nothing -it's how Week got in the season before. Ok, that's our tentative 2017 Experts field: Groz, Mya, WJ, me, Week, POTN, Mudguard, Bronn, JJ and Pyro. Post on how we handle future Experts seasons to follow...
  2. Westeros Fantasy Baseball 2017

    Fantasy baseball is 98% about misery and the brutal daily grind so I'm in favor of the full season. The half season just feels weird and unnatural to me. The MLB season continues but my fantasy team does not. Losing out on Arenado's awesome second half two years ago killed me. And I'm sure I feel the same way about guys on my team last year if I could remember a single one.
  3. @Maithanet, I need answers. The Wizards have won 12 in a row at home - what the suffering fuck? I'm not sure there's an NBA team that historically has had less of a homecourt advantage than Les Boulez. They've also somehow played 7 more home games than away games at this point so I await the swift, brutal regression because they've been godawful on the road. Win streak aside, I'm not convinced they're even decent and they're apparently banned from nationally televised games so I can't see for myself. So please tell me what the fuck is going on.
  4. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Joe Pesci has taught us so much! I keep forgetting pinky swear agreements are legally binding and failing to illegally collude against the NFLPA is punishable. It almost seems like the NFL makes up rules as they go and isn't always above board. Fortunately the extent they've made me aware of the existence of both women and the armed forces, and the unquestionable good that such awareness brings, easily outstrips any questions I have about the integrity of the men who run this fine league.
  5. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    The Steelers and Patriots are both amateur cheaters. Why would you need to videotape a Jets practice in order to beat them for the 75th straight time? And trying to trip a return man on live TV? Subtle. No, elite cheating involves applying completely made up cap penalties to 2 of your 3 division rivals. If you want to get an actual competitive edge, do what white collar criminals and hide your malfeasance in the banal and intangible. This should be a meme. Thanks to Joe Pesci, I have learned the importance of responding to any insult by beating that person to death.
  6. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Yeah to be honest I'm not completely sold on him either but the Skins offense has a bunch of talent and I hate to turn it over to someone else who is likely to be worse. So sick of this step forward, step back bullshit. Even missing the playoffs they were a better team this year than last. And the possibility of 3 winning seasons in a row is opulence I can't even imagine. And yeah Cousins doesn't make sense for where the 49ers are in their rebuild. Not sure who the 49ers GM is but if I hired Kyle Shanahan I'd trust that dude's instincts on who to draft even if it's some 4th round project while addressing other needs.
  7. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Can't be easy going from a team with Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Taylor Gabriel, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman to one with Carlos Hyde and......that tuna fish sandwich Jim Tomsula left in the equipment shed on the chance he got evicted from the Storage Facility he was living in. But regardless it's a great get if he does end up signing on. Just know, the second y'all come after Kirk Cousins, I'm burning Levis stadium to the ground.
  8. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Yeah GB in the 60s, Dallas in the 60s-70s and Pittsburgh in the 70s can make their cases as well. Before my time so I can't comment fully. But do think the 49ers ushered in the modern game with the WCO in the 80s. All true. Except also need to include Bill Belichick vs. Highly Successful NFL coach Mike McCarthy in the analysis. Packers got eliminated the last two years in OT and pretty sure it would've been 3 in a row if Aaron Rodgers didn't override the playcall with some backyard-football-Brett-Favre-in-wrangler-jeans bullshit. But I think he knew deep down in his heart of hearts McCarthy would find a way to blow this. Every Packer fan certainly did. He needed to initiate the override sequence before McCarthy cost him another potential ring.
  9. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    I could get down with a "Permanent AFC Finalist" banner for the Irsay trolling. Was gonna say there's no team that ever had a prolonged run like this but the 49ers from '81-'98 is pretty comparable. And they got 5 rings out of it. Think the Patriots need one more ring to plausibly make their case for "most dominant team ever" claim. At least in the modern era. Feels like they already have record imaginable but the more you look there's still a ton to sort out legacy-wise.
  10. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Let me try to do this on memory: 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016. If I'm right, you're right on - 11 times. Jesus have they really made it the last 6 years in a row?
  11. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Could be but that was where McDaniels fucked up the most in Denver. He took over a team that had one of the best offenses in football the year before (and only missed the playoffs because the defense was terrible) and promptly got rid of all the skill positions who made it so good in favor of first his preferred Matt Cassel, then Kyle Orton, then Tim Tebow. Also drafted Knowshon Moreno 12th overall. And yes DeMaryius Thomas...but still that doesn't undo all the fail. If I was an owner, I'd be highly leery of turning over personnel to McDaniels after that example. Though if that's why Jed York rejected him, it's amusing he put his foot down here after letting Trent Baalke fail miserably for 5+ years as the 49ers eroded from the most talented team in the league to the least.
  12. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Thing is, people would've said the same thing about Belichick after his first HC job with the Browns. Based on merit, McDaniels has earned another chance at a head job. Though, yes, he needs to prove to whomever he interviews with that he's grown from being the pocket Napoleon he was in Denver.
  13. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Predictions: Falcons over Packers - Rodgers has been magic in this playoffs. He's testing our preconceived notions about how much of a load a single player can carry in the ultimate team game. The level of difficulty of what he's doing is off the charts. But that's just it - offense is easy for the Falcons. They scored 100 more points than any other team in football this year. Matt Ryan can spread the ball around to all his weapons and put up a TD without breaking a sweat. Think it'll be like an NBA game where one team is getting easier shots all game. It's no guarantee they win - after all Rodgers is damn good at making those hard shots - but just don't think his defense will be able to help him out enough. 38-31 Falcons. Patriots over Steelers - Really want to take the Steelers. Without Gronk I think the Patriots are the less talented team. Plus Le'Veon Bell is having a Terrell Davis like postseason and Antonio Brown is not coverable. But it's just the mojo Belichick and the Patriots have over the Steelers. And Big Ben has looked sloppy all year, especially on the road. I think he makes a couple big mistakes Brady doesn't. 27-24 Patriots.
  14. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Feel like this play decides the game. ETA: Antonio Brown, dagger.
  15. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    All I want from my quality NFL game is Le'Veon Bell 6 yard runs and tons of FGs so this is like heaven for me. Chad Pennington would like a word.
