  1. I came here to say something similar. I generally prefer watching a big play offense, but a big play defense full of sacks, fumbles and INTs is similarly exciting. The grinding, dominant style defenses can make games seem incredibly long.
  2. I might be misremembering, but wasn't Hankins upset that he was used out of position on the Giants?
  3. This stat really messes with my OCD. We also lost Superbowl XLIV in large part because Freeney was injured.
  4. Obviously a little punter prejudice in there.
  5. Looks like someone else won't let it die either! I just got another one a few nights ago while watching "Sully." I think it's all in the eyes and cheeks. Catherine O'Hara Valerie Mahaffey
  6. Cheerleaders don't do it for a living. They do it for fun. Cheerleader pay is very low. I had a professor at Purdue a few years ago that was a Colts' cheerleader. Obviously being a Ph.D. level professor and researcher doesn't typically require a side job. She enjoyed it.
  7. I'm glad to hear your dog is fine. That is a big size discrepancy between the two dogs. When I was 12 my dalmatian (65 lbs) was attacked by our neighbors' German shepherd (~100 lbs) and an Australian shepherd mix (~50 lbs). She escaped with a few puncture wounds and a slightly red-stained coat but nothing too terrible despite the double-team. It didn't affect her personality one bit. She just kept on keeping on. I should mention that she was generally dumb as a brick, but she was a good dog. The only recourse I can recall is that the neighbor started tying the G. shepherd up. We have some dogs of questionable character in our neighborhood. Both are pit bull mixes that could likely make short work of my coward of an Australian shepherd mix (~50 lbs). One of them runs loose and actually seems more aggressive towards people than dogs (which is scary). The other is normally tied in the front yard while the owners are out with it, but it seems entirely too eager to get at my dog when we walk by. Unfortunately, it's a neighbor on our street so we have no alternate course to walk. We normally carry dog mace, and I usually have a knife on me...neither of which I'd ever want to have to use. I'm not entirely sure dog mace would work on a charging pit bull.
  8. You know what's funny, after listening to Myles Garret talk (the 1st pick in this draft), I bet he would have been thrilled to have an orangutan announce him...or maybe someone dressed as a dinosaur. I think the gripe against Mayock is that he didn't take the opportunity to voice his mind against a Walking Dead commercial, an advertisement for Vegas, an advertisement for a golf course, or a ex-player turning the entire announcement into an opportunity to troll another team, but rather voiced it against an organization dedicated to conservation and learning. If I understand correctly, the zoo was asked to do this. He should have bashed the overall idea of spectacle...not the orangutan/zoo. He might have a point that the focus needs to be more on the players, but he made his point in an unprofessional way.
  9. At this point, I'd just pick Lamp with the 1 and be done with it. Foster has screwed up and now, deserved or not, Conley has to drop. Unless it comes out that she lied it's too big of a risk. Aside from the PR nightmare, if he is convicted then we've lost a pick.
  10. Win AFC South with at least 10 wins AND beat at least one of the elite teams AND at least stay competitive in the games we lose. It's all good to win the AFC South, but I'd like to see that the Colts aren't just a big fish in a small pond.
  11. It's not dead yet. Rich Franklin and Jim Carrey
  12. Calling someone an * is unforgivable. I'd definitely throw down if someone called me an *. I could handle # or maybe @, even ", but never *.
  13. RIP. He was definitely one of the posters whose opinions I always valued and one of the names that I associate with this forum.
  14. I'm rooting for the Falcons, but I think the Pats will win. I'd like to see the Falcons get a ring. They're one of those teams that for some reason, despite having no connection, I like to see succeed.
