NFL Offseason 2019: Gettleman Browns all over the Giants

Recommended Posts

This seems to be a semantic debate - I agree that one could describe the Packers only getting two Super Bowls out of 27 seasons of Favre/Rodgers can be described as squandering.  But if we're gonna bitch about Rodgers shouldn't equally bitch about Favre?  After all, he was QB1 for 16 of those 27 seasons, and both only won one championship.  Relatedly, shouldn't Mike Sherman and Ray Rhodes' one season be criticized as much as McCarthy?  Recency bias!

I think you also have to factor in just how hard it is to be consistently good as a team in the NFL.  The Pats are pretty much the only team that has been good pretty much every year for the past decade, and they absolutely appear to be the exception.  Even teams with good coaches and consistently good front offices tend to have a few bad years every decade.  Maybe your coach eventually gets left behind and fails to innovate as the league evolves like McCarthy.  Maybe you give out a bad extension or two that backfires, or sign the wrong free agent to too much guaranteed money.  Maybe a few of your players just get to that point where the relationship can't be mended, like Antonio Brown and Big Ben.  Maybe your star QB gets hurt and your back-up cracks under pressure.

There's a lot of room for fuck-ups in the NFL.  Many of them can be avoided with good management and coaching, but some can't.

Well boys it's been real. And it's been fun.

But it ain't been real fun.

I'm off to replace Gronkowsi. I don't want you all to think that I'm not hanging around anymore cause  I'm just going to be busy being this young man from some school playing for the Patriots or anything. No, I won't be around anymore because Bill has obviously recognized my jeanius and I'm just better than y'all. 

So I'd like to take this time, as I'm called up by the Pats to be Twammy's new woobie, to burn all of the bridges.

@DanteGabriel you once used 'there' when 'their' was called for. As I have never EVER made any gramaticall mistake ever and definitely NOT in this very post I name you a fool!

@Rockroi despite our many disagreements it always will bring me peace and comfort to think about how Eli was in the grasp.

@briantw is the answer to whether we are alone in the universe.

@Jaime L was never as smart or good looking as @Maithanet who looks like glue and thinks like jell-o.

@Tywin et al. I rest my case.

@Triskele once told Aaron Rodgers to be less sensitive, setting off a chain of sensitivity.

@Nictarion is a Bengals fan. A BENGALS fan!!!

@Kalbear doesn't know The difference between Bernie Sanders and Bernie Madoff.

@Mexal once said that he'd rather have Andy Dalton and A.J. Geen instead of Andy Luck. Talk about a Sophie's choice.

@Bronn Stone plays Fantasy Football the way a tree plays tag.

@JJ Lannister is what I'd call my dog if I was angry.

@Ferrum Aeternum... I uh... Do we even have a made up beef? Your cooking skills leave room for improvement!!!

It's a shame you're not sticking around, because "Twammy's new woobie" would be an all pro caliber member title.

Any activity that gives Jace more things to do elsewhere and less time to spend here is a good thing.


As for her comment about me, couldn't see it over the dozen or so first-place Westeros Fantasy Football trophies I've earned over the years.

Yeah, I had real trophies made.  So what!?

Only sensitive to the weaknesses in defenses, Darth.

Neither was I, must be a stigma against niner fans.  In fact, neither was @James Arryn.  Three examples means a statistically significant correlation.  That's science.

There is no way you could have made this more personal, you deranged froghopper.

By the way, you aren't fooling anyone by claiming this Sternberger kid's identity. We know you're secretly Jace Amaro,

Nobody wants to know how you "came off."

If I was writing a roast this would not be my preferred burn, although A for effort.  Maybe "inane horseshitter" or "overexcited crazystoned" or "justletitgonobodycares."  I dunno, I like the froghopper thing but can't really think of anything like that.  Beyond horseshitter.
