  1. Man I am just doing every pick wrong this year and forgot about the 10am kickoff. I think maybe I will actually start using the coin flip meathod for half the games and see if that works better

    I watched Moonfall on HBO Max. I knew what I was getting myself into, I knew it was going to be bad and dumb, but I didn't expect so much checking out from the crew. Even Emmerich and the writers must have been checked out. Easily the worst movie of the year. Sam Tarly was the only one who looked like he was trying. And honestly, while the premise may seem outlandish, it falls squarely in the realm of outlandish SF premises, so I had no problem with it. The execution from writing to VFX was utter shit.

    It was a horrible movie, bad at everything. I saw better FX in the reruns of 60's monster movies than some of the scenes from this pile of crap.

    Allegedly, but I mean, did it look like a 'back injury' to you last week or a head injury?

    I don't know the signs well enough so I won't guess. I have to assume that the doctor who evaluated him knows it though and he was specifically looking for signs of it. 

    I occasionally have a nerve or whatever in my back on the right side that when I step just right it buckles my knees and I probably look like he did. After the initial buckle and I recover it is gone and I may not feel it for 6 months.

    I really hope it was a back issue and they (including him) didn't try to hide something because this looks way worse.

    All that tagged money is guaranteed playa.

    I love Lamar and everything he's doing. Fuck them. Bet on yourself every day.

    Yes but the tag is one season and that's it, not 5 seasons at 50mill each guaranteed. 

    He is sure playing this season like he should be paid the most.

    Very first problem that needs to be addressed. 

    Lol, they showed a graphic in 4th quarter about the Giants drafting 8 OL(? don't remember exact number or years) in the first three rounds in the last few drafts and not one has made a pro bowl or even signed a second contract with them. Neal, last years 1st rd pick will likely be the one to break that curse.

  6. I think I enjoyed this episode of House Dragon almost as much as any other. They have used these episodes to get viewers to take sides

    Spoiler

    Do you side with the virtuous Queen or the devil be damned Princess. I liked her offer of marriage at the small council as it put things into perspective. She knows her father will not command that the marriage happens and she knows nothing good can come of her and her family staying there.

    And Daemon

    Spoiler

    We are to assume he fathered the children and is not impotent he just couldn't perform with those others and he seemed to truly care for his wife, nice to see this side of him. Now we can expect him to let loose since she is gone and won't be talking sense into him.

    Looking forward to the rest of the series now that the groundwork has been laid.

    O-line was laughably embarrassing the entire game. Jones running for his life on every single play. 

    And Shepard carted off the field at the end. Back to reality.

    Maybe you guys can give us Golladay for free, eat half his contract and we'll take him off your hands?  I don't understand what happened with him. I live near Detroit and watched a lot of his games while he was here and this is not the same player.

    Ah I see, thank you Ran for the answer. I had hoped that GRRM felt so comfortable in this particular collaboration that perhaps the canons would be aligned, but this makes more sense.

     

    Spoiler

    I watched the after episode director / writer thing and he mentions that he read a throw away line about she died in hunting accident... and he decided to expound on it.  I think that sucked because in the 2-3 min she was on screen I was already liking her, and like anything else in that world she was of course killed.

    Added spoiler for House of Dragon, oops!

    Allen in his first two years was terrible against man coverage. I've heard a lot of people say Diggs is one of the, if not the best, WRs to beat man coverage. That's nothing to sneeze at. 

    Lol, this sounds absurd, but it is late and I am tired?

    Who was he throwing to in man coverage, we have discussed this before, he had absolute shit receivers who couldn't get open, that's his fault? Once he got a legit #1 receiver who could actually do his job it all came together.

  10. 2 minutes ago, Tywin et al. said:

    Buddy, he would have wide open targets 10 yards away from him and regularly throw it five yards short or 10 feet over their head. His accuracy was really bad for a pro prospect.

    Not when magically putting it all together when it's hard to explain is at play.

    Maybe it's also called getting competent coaching for the first time in his career? Someone who actually knows how to teach a QB how to be more accurate? I mean he had all the tools, he just needed coaching and weapons.

    More importantly it wasn't a leap in year 3 out of no where like people keep saying, he got considerably better year 1 to 2 in every single category. 52,8% to 58.8% is a big leap. 2074 yds to 3089 is a big leap, 10tds to 20 is a big leap. 12 int down to 9 int is huge for 2nd year guy.

    Then in year three he got Diggs and it was game on.

    One thing I realized after this episode is that there is nobody to root for, nobody to follow with interest, and cheer on.  Because I cannot not compare GOT to HOD, I realized in GOT there were many characters worth following, right from the first 2-3 episodes.  In this show, we can pick weak king, homicidal maniac, ruthless young lady, or  dutiful wife (but not for long) and a variety of other lessor folks. 

    I can also compare this to Rings of Power which also presented characters worth knowing, like Nori, Durin, and Arondir.  

    I realized that I don't really care about any of these characters and I wonder, why watch?  Does anyone else feel this way?

    Curious, who did you root for in GOT?  Ned who lied to his wife and entire family and Jon? Robb who pledged to marry a Lords daughter and betrayed him costing him his and his mothers and hundreds of Stark soldiers? Jon who loved Ygritte and yet still betrayed her? Who loved Dany and still killed her. 

    I was with you, I knew early on who was good and who I was rooting for only to see later the bad choices they make and the innocent lives that died because of them. This show is just letting us see their flaws early on. I also can't see how anyone is rooting against the Princess, why because she had sex? Because she didn't want her prudish friend to know about it?

    I'm rooting for her and to a lesser extent Daemon. I like to be able to switch off my mind and root for someone who just says fuck it and does as he/she pleases and is willing to face the consequences. I like dark characters like that.

    I guess it activates the fandom's PTSD that GoT season 5-8 inflicted upon us. A member of the kingsguard just killing the princess's groom's friend in front of literally everyone and then facing no consequences over it does feel like something that D&D would come up with.

    I only feel the conflict was rushed between them. 

    The Kingsguard are higher than any knights and most Lords I think so it's pretty much hands off them with only the King having say over them.  The other KG should have been around the King and even the Princess during that chaos not abandoning them to see who is fighting, that would have been stupid.

    He may have been seen as protecting a royal family member and the guy did bare a blade during the fight that he has concealed which I am sure is a major crime. Having weapons in the presence of the King and then baring the blade is probably grounds for execution.

    Count me among those who think Alycent was jealous of Rh getting away with so much while she has to lie under a man rotting from within.  Of course, the show does not exactly tell us that, but she does wear a green dress.  One spoken line describes the green meaning.  Too bad if you missed it. Boy howdy, Viserys is IN trouble at home.

    Indeed, Sir Cole also wants Rh to run away with him.  And her entire speech about being the crown, from somebody who has shown little interest in the ruling aspects, was entirely unbelievable.  Are we to assume that Rh has suddenly become interested in the welfare of the people, the throne, and the importance of ruling.  Or did she make it up on the spot.  We already know she is good at that.

    Finally, Sir Cole brutally murders the bff of Laenor, the new groom.  Deliberately, purposefully, beats the living crap out of him.  I guess he is in love with Rh but really - has he thought that through?  I think not. 

     

    Part 1 sort of agree. She has been shown to be more prudish so the thought of her only friend lying to her face, swearing on her dead mother sets her off. Put that together with her dad telling her that Rhenrya will have to kill Aegon to be the Queen and anyone should see why her attitude is changing.

    Part 2 The part with Cole and running away..they have clearly shown that she wants to be the Queen. She doesn't want the political marriage part of being the Queen is all. She wants to have sex like a man is allowed to and still be Queen and can't understand why Cole has an issue with that. Remember she was pretty innocent and pure until her Uncle took her to the brothel and was ready to have sex with her. That is all she knows about sex, what he taught her. So she assumes Cole will go along with it.

    Part 3 is the one I feel wasn't fleshed out very well. They probably need to show the Princess feeling betrayed by the Queen and taking Cole, her lover, is a good way to piss her off.

  14. Too bad we lost Rhea as soon as we met her, I'm pretty sure she would have been a great character, I got strong Asha Greyjoy feel from her.

    So why did Cole attack him? I mean I know he approached Cole and told him he knows about what he did with the Princess but to attack him in front of everyone? I guess they are trying to show us how unbalanced he is?

    Also, the Littlefinger clone with the crutches, I wish him a horrible death. I don't like him not one little bit.

    I do like how they are trying to show us why the war that is coming is inevitable. Giving us the view from both the Queen and Princess side helps. 

    One thing that is hurting my enjoyment of the show a little bit is that I keep looking for characters that we already know. Like Littlefinger = Larys Strong.  Leanor = Renly and  Jofrey = Loras..  Hopefully I can turn this part of my mind off while watching future episodes.

    Normally I'd never get Mrs BFC to watch a football program, but as she is a huge It's always Sunny fan, and totally wants to bang Ryan Reynolds I think I have a shot. 

    That's how I got my daughter (older, not a kid) interested in Dead Pool, hey it stars Ryan Reynolds! Also Guardians of the Galaxy, told her Bradley Cooper was a main star, lol. Didn't tell her it was a voice over and he was a talking Racoon but hey it worked!

    Another good episode of House Dragon. Spoilers not to anger the Dragon killers!

    Spoiler

    Liked seeing the Queen show up in Green, I knew instantly that the colors meant something.  The disrespect shown the King, hell he should've turned the ships around and left and let her choose the next largest house, fuck em!  I didn't understand Cole attacking the other guy. I know the gist of it but it didn't make sense. Also, was that House strong holding back assistance and letting the chaos play out?
