  1. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    So...Presidential?
  2. US Politics - or: How I Learned to Love the Atomic Don

    No one's the bad guy in their own movie.
  3. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    No, Jerry Rice is to football what Gretzky is to hockey. The numbers he put up are astonishing, and the gaps between he and the next best in several categories are just mind-blowing.
  4. NHL 2016 - The Kids Are Alright

    Leafs are too good too soon. I wanted another killer draft, but I don't think I'm going to get it.
  5. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Unofficial word seems to be consolidating behind the idea that Shanahan is all but hired, officially put off until his season ends. So now I'm just bracing myself for the announcement that he's retiring from football. edit; Jaime, agreed across the board. I'm ready to engage in faith here. W/r to best QB, my money's still on Joe, but in terms of Brady vs Rogers, I kinda think Kareem vs. Hakeem; the former has the better career, the latter was the better player, but both are up there. If I'm starting from scratch I take Rogers, if I'm voting HOF Brady gets my vote.

    I'm increasingly theorizing that many people are nostalgic about the Cold War era. Trump seems to be pushing for a revisitation, and posters in here seem to quote CW reasoning as tautologies without any real application. Seriously, I think some people feel more vital or, dunno, patriotic in that dynamic.

    That tuna fish sandwich will be excellent if it ever recovers from the torn ACL. Cousins...while I do enjoy players with spree-killer eyes, I'm still not sold on him, so I hope we're both satisfied with where that goes. Of course I don't really like any qb's in this draft class either. Maybe I'm hoping for Rosen.
  8. Ft Lauderdale airport shooting

    Interesting...

    Kirchner withdraws from 9ers GM consideration, talk is Cable will do likewise soon, both apparently feel they are just being used as leverage in Shanahan negotiations. McDaniels apparently's given reasons for withdrawing (family) are also reportedly as being sincere, though I personally have real doubts. Either way, it's all fine and good IF Shanahan signs, but if he changes his mind the Niners might wind up shambling for scraps like last year. Situation feeling very fragile to me.

    There's probably a secret Rooney rule for Ryans.
  11. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    I think Ballard was out top choice, too.
  12. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Yeah, iffy. But let's hope. My top choice is still there, so I ought to be glad. And the GM choices...Wolf looks very good, Riddick is interesting, but I don't know too much about McDonough. Do you have any thoughts on him?
  13. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    Yeah, it's just a serious issue with regards to putting a staff together, which is a pretty significant early step w/r to a rebuild. Unless we're just gonna poach off of playoff teams.

    According to a few sources, he'd reportedly been very favourable to the Niners situation up until now. So, those could be wrong, or something happened to change his mind. Don't think the Niners are offering full GM powers to the HC exactly, but word is that their prioritizing fits, and to a degree the HC might get a lot of say on choosing the GM. The problem with that is, if we're waiting for Shanahan and/or McD to be free before even hiring our GM, we might be sitting on our thumbs for a few weeks now.
  15. NFL Divisional Playoffs: 3 games and Brady

    I agree. And since we screwed the pooch with Harbaugh, we've had more than our share of guys preferring lower positions elsewhere to promotions with us, which is about as bad a look as you can get. So, if after all the feel-good vibes we're back there again, oh the humanity.
