  1. I think that was done on purpose to not make this a right vs left movie, to appeal to a wider audience. Had it been Texas, Florida, random south eastern states then the feel would have been way different.
  2. I'm confused here. They selected Hooker in the 3rd round after he was hurt in college. Your statement makes it sound like he was picked to take over but then got hurt. He was dropped in the draft due to his injury and drafted in 3rd round because of his potential upside once fully recovered.
  3. Your take on this is exactly why I am skeptical about the movie. I don't know why but I wasn't as enamored with Fury Road as most people on here, I probably need to watch it again. I'm sure I'll see this in a theater at some point since I'm a sucker for big dumb action movies but I have little interest in seeing a prequel to a movie that didn't grab me.
  4. You guys keep saying Goff got overpaid, not worth it, avg QB and above market rate. If he got it then guess what, that's what the market said he is worth so it in fact is the market rate. Same thing with this pie in the sky "just draft a rookie QB" and all will be well. Really? Herbert, Lawrence, Lance, Fields, Wilson, Tua, Burrows, Darnold... all of them were highly rated QB's taken early in the draft the last few years and not a single one has had more success than Goff. Burrow had one great NFL season and made it to the SB but that's it. Goff has done better than all of these cheaper young QB's. When you have a QB who has shown he can lead your team in your scheme you do not just throw him away for the next trophy wife.
  5. This is where I am with Dak. If he balls out and Dallas does something, like NFC champ game, in the post season then yeah, we gotta pay him again. If half the season goes by and Dallas is a .500 team I say bench him and put Trey Lance in (assuming he does good in preseason work). Then let Dak walk at the end of the season. The problem in Dallas as I see it now is that we have no run game so Dak will likely put up big numbers again and look like he deserves a big contract even though we don't win anything. On an side note, I would try to trade Lance or Cooper Rush in the preseason for a good RB. Salary cap wise we probably could save some money doing it and strengthen our team. Lance is due 5.3 this year and Rush 2.3. Either one is enough cap space for a legit RB, not a stud, but a legit starter.
  6. Tell me what market value is for a QB with his stats and playoff history at age 29? And then tell me what QB was there when they picked that is better than Goff for this team right now? And if Goff isn't worth it here where he is flourishing, then why would anyone else take him in a trade? No one will be excited to pay more than Mahommes but guess what, it's already happening and Goff wasn't the first. They love Goff here and to not pay him and say well screw it, we are smart so even though we made our first NFC championship game since 1991 we will go ahead and not pay him and draft a replacement with pick 27 or lower. Or worse, trade up and blow the future hoping to get the right guy. The fans in this town who finally have a team to be proud of would have burned Ford Field to the ground and I am not exaggerating.
  7. For me it was War Games, that's my memory of him. Saw him in a lot of stuff through the years though.
  8. I watched this over the weekend as well and thought it was much better than the last one. I still favor the first one in this reboot though. This is an enjoyable movie that might be best viewed on a large screen. I liked the time jump and the special effects were really well done, crazy when I look back at the original and how amazing it looked when I first saw it compared to how it looks when I see it now. Yeah it was pretty clear she(the human) was different This is the 4th installment in the new reboot btw.
  9. He has a brand new contract (so it's always higher) for a legit top 5-10 QB and yet he is still 7th in guaranteed money, 2nd in AAV, and 9th in overall contract value. That sounds about right to me. CBSsports did an article on this recently, numbers all came from there. The only thing anyone can point at and say it seems too high is AAV, and that can and likely will change with contract changes each new season to make room for the team.
  10. Same is happening in Michigan, Bally's covers the Tigers, Red Wings and Pistons and it's struggling to stay on, app is apparently horrible also.
  11. How much was early re-up? I'm in the same boat w Dallas. 6 prime time games plus several 420p starts, I am likely not paying it this year.
  12. Yeah but that's kind of a shit stat. If you buy a ticket to every game one person gets to "enjoy" the Panthers for every game. If you bought all those subscription services the entire family and sometimes friends get to enjoy countless hours of entertainment beyond the Panthers for a year. It was already at that because if you wanted to watch them all before you had to have cable with ESPN, I don't know what others pay but when I cut cable it was over $100 a month, so $5200 a year, again, more than a ticket to games. But yes, the NFL keeps finding ways to spread their content around just enough to make more money. I paid for Sunday Ticket last year since I switched to YoutubeTV and got a discount. Not sure that I will do that again this year. I'd be interested to see how many new subscribers Prime and whoever else attribute to having NFL games and if it has been worth the amount they are paying. It must be because every year we see this happening.
  13. Pretty much agree. S1 was really good, very interesting but after that it lost me. I didn't even finish S2.
  14. Young Sheldon wrapped it's series last night. Have to say it was a pretty good run. The one thing for me that got a little rough was the Young Sheldon character himself, IMO the actor went a little over board in the last couple seasons with some ticks and quirks. They definitely ended it setting up the characters for what we know from TBBT and had a couple tear jerker episodes to close it out. They really did well showing how Sheldon was trying to process an event internally and externally people getting angry with him and not understanding why he was doing what he was.
  15. Good luck getting a top 10 QB to sign for 45 nowadays.
  16. So Hurts got 51mill per year and a year later Goff got 53mill, pretty much right on the nose. Lol, I'm with you on this one!
  17. Ok, that's just showing that this is a silly discussion. Geno is a classic journeyman QB, he has had one good year statistically, one. Mayfield has had zero years over 4100 yards or 28 tds. Goff has done both 4 times. His worst year as a full time starter is almost as good as Bakers best year. They are not even close to being the same and I like Mayfield. Since 2018 only one QB has more passing yards than Goff and that is a guy named Mahommes. He is also 8th in tds in that same time span. Explain to me how that is top 10 on a really good day because I am missing something?
  18. People. You can't pay a starting QB in the NFL 40mill a year on a new contract in 2024, what fairy tale world do you live in? A QB that has been to a SB and taken a second team to championship game, you really think he is gonna take Cousins money? Be realistic. Lazy comparison. Same 8 years and Goff has 100 more td's, double the pass yards and 7 fewer int. Do I think Goff is great, nope and I said so in original post, will never be compared to Mahommes type. Do you have to be great to win a SB or to warrant getting paid, nope. Detroit was one fluke bounce off a facemask from beating SF and getting to the SB to face KC who they already beat in KC, with Goff.
  19. So a guy who has taken two separate teams to the NFC championship game isn't worth paying? Is he Mahommes, no, but he is a damn good QB, better than I thought when he got here. He has had more playoff success than Herbert, Jackson, Hurts, Murray, Watson, Cousins etc.. Burrow, Allen and Mahommes are the only QB's in top 10 pay who have more playoff wins than Goff. You can't say he walked into a great team in Detroit either, they were dog shit. Realistically with the contracts going around he will be down to about 6th in pay in a year or so.
  20. Ross said on a pod cast or something after that it was a gag by Brady to say that, wasn't really mad. Of course that's easy to say after the fact.
  21. I also was wary going into this, for some reason I had it in my head that this was a MAGA centric fantasy and it wasn't at all.
  22. Watched Man Down today. Tag line is something like man looks for his family in post apocalyptic U.S., basic easy to watch movie. So I just went off that, Shia LeBeouf, Kate Mara and Gary Oldman in it. Starts out with basic training, guy and best friend going together, does flash backs through entire movie, middle east, post apocalyptic U.S etc. Pretty dark movie. Can't really say much else without giving stuff away. Good performances by all the actors.
  23. I also watched The Fall Guy this weekend and enjoyed it. I remember watching this when I was a kid, it came out in 81 and I was 8-9. Not sure when I started watching but it was a fun watch. Loved his truck. The movie is what I expected, just fun and exciting, short on plot. When I first saw Waddingham I thought she was Lena Headey, they really look alike when she has the dark hair, IMO. Anyway I made sure to watch the credits and heard the updated version of the theme song come on. I actually listened to the original this weekend just to remind myself of it. Watched Eye in the Sky, it's a movie about drone strikes basically. It isn't so much about using them and bam, killing bad guys, but more about should you use them and when. The movie keeps the tension pretty high throughout it. Pretty good cast of actors in it as well.
  24. I would have shit myself if that happened. Hopefully your bed was still clean after! I'll probably see this over the weekend and really hope they have the original theme song play at some point. I remember the original as a kid, loved the show, that and Dukes of Hazzard, lots of high flying vehicles! This is probably where my like of big dumb action movies came from, these were two of the first shows I ever remember truly watching and liking.
