NFL 2018 III - Gronk is Better at Life Than You

I think he was responding to the previous arguments that Montana benefitted from top tier receiving talent for his championships. Which is why he asked people to name an offensive player from 81 besides Dwight Clark. 

(Freddie Solomon was the bigger star at WR that year and the primary target on The Catch but I am a Niners fan who's read a lot about that episode in history)

Yeah, exactly. ‘He had Rice’ is often said as THE argument which is surprising when half his career/rings went by before Rice graduated. Montana is ‘81 was about as close as you’ll get to a 1 man NFL championship, at least from what I can see in the numbers/on film. Even by ‘84 they’d only really added Roger Craig in terms of anyone worth noting on offense, and he was a rookie playing FB. (They were stacked on D, though).

When obvious joke was apparently not obvious enough.  

:P

 

I was all geared up to get bucked about my A-Bomb comments in the Nam thread, so take that into account. :(

Thanks for that clarification, because "Montana was good before Rice therefore Montana made Rice" was a terrible argument. ;)

I'll just picture you like Martin Sheen in the opening scene of Apocalypse Now.

So high stakes trade talks have broken down in private so I am forced to summon my inner Tywin Butler.

 

Come on @Jace, Basilissa, we're like Cousins. Don't be a SendeJo. I've got a Thielen about this trade. I really think you'll Diggs it. And with any Luck a rising tide will lift all boats. But if you disagree, I guess we can just meet at the Hilton and Cook something up. The Rhodes are still open. Don't Barr our passage. But if you must, you best Treadwell. I'll be speaking to The Hitman later about all of this.

You VIke that?

Jack Doyle

They cut Flowers earlier this week. I think maybe Eli Manning is a good candidate for the Chris Conte rule.

I know - but he was starting before this, and they went through the entire offseason and this season thinking he was their starter.

Maybe they parked in an illegal space? Game doesn't start for like 9 hours. Can't imagine living with stress 9 hours before a regular season game.

Nah, they were taking an uber or something. They flew in from KC. I dont think stress is the right word. Impending doom is prob better imo.

Gimmie the Patriots by 3 in overtime after they not only score one on the opening drive, but KC answers with less than a minute left in the extra period.

 

ETA:

Oh, and the shortening of OT from 15 to 10 minutes is so clearly a decision made for business interests rather than competitive ones. Any asshole who has played a season of Franchise mode in Madden couldda told you that shortening the time on the clock does not necessarily decrease the amount of plays that can be run. And that it wouldn't lead to more ties?

It's much easier to burn the clock when the chances of getting a second possession with more than a minute left are so low they're right next to fucking dinosaur bones.

Didn’t the Chiefs beat the Pats up there last season? I seriously doubt they’re too worried. 

Most of the recent wins for the Chiefs over NE were not when the Pats were rolling as a team. But its not the playoffs so Andy Reid might find a way to win. doubt it though. Pats by more than a touchdown.

Pats have not yet acquired anyone capable of containing the Chiefs' players. Going to be a long night in Foxboro.

Effing secondary is horrendous. Artie burns proving to be a first round bust in his third year. If cincy is gonna score would rather it be now with over a minute left. Though with Boswell and his recent shortcomings a FG is not a gimme.
