  1. Maybe he wanted to play another season, and NE was the only team interested. Sometimes they have to take what they can get or be out of football. it could have been that kind of situation. On the other hand, it would be neat if AP got 1000 yards this season. He seems to be near the end of his career, but who knows how it will work out.
  2. "Mediocrities everywhere, I absolve you!" Couldn't resist. Anyway, for the Colts to have a successful season: no major injuries and a winning record. Getting the AFC South division is icing on the cake.
  3. The Colts and Patriots will not play each other for the second consecutive year.
  4. I can't expand on what others have said. This is tough: thoughts and condolences going out to you and your family. Take care of yourself.
  5. MJ must be overrated if Skip Bayless likes him!
  6. I didn't mind Simms, but am OK with giving Romo a chance. This is a bit off topic, but why is Chris Collinsworth so disliked? I don't think he's that bad, so am wondering what the criticism is all about. Maybe I'm missing something others see.
  7. The reason Francois was released by Washington is because he criticized the team on Twitter. (I don't have a link, but it should be somewhere on the NFL website.) One does not complain about their managers on social media and expect to get away with it. Hopefully, he won't do the same about the Packers organization. Otherwise, this might be a good pickup for them.
  8. Ben Browder played Jon Crichton in the TV show "Farscape." and also had a role in the 'Stargate" TV series. Reading that he played such a perverted character in this movie doesn't set right with me. I'll never look at these shows the same way. Why, Ben? Maybe he needed the money or something. I didn't know that Clint Eastwood had 7 children. A few of them have followed in his footsteps.
  9. I'm usually suspicious of any movie that critics rave about. I've seen too many movies that got great reviews and ended up being disappointments. Examples are "Arrival"; "Titanic" ; "Love, Actually" . All these were overrated IMO. I did like "Lord of the Rings" movies, though. Also some of the "X-Man" movies were good. Haven't seen "Logan", however. I'm not sure about "La La Land." The previews didn't impress me, but maybe one can't go by that.
  10. I recently saw "Arrival" on demand. I don't know why it got such great reviews because I wasn't that impressed with the movie. Louise Banks (actress Amy Adams) is an expert linguist brought in when 12 spaceships land on earth. She is tasked with trying to communicate with the aliens. The main event takes place in Montana, where Adams and her team are located. The movie is mostly about Adams and the way she tries to talk to the aliens using signs and symbols of various kinds. There are flashbacks about Louise and her daughter which was quite confusing. Apparently, her daughter had some kind of rare disease that had to do with the aliens, but I couldn't figure it out. Something also happened between her and her husband (divorced, separated), it never really told us. The film was slow moving, boring and confusing. The aliens (which looked squids) were kind of cool, though. Overall, I'm glad that I didn't spend any money at the theater. Not recommended, although others might feel differently. It just wasn't for me.
  11. Does Belichick know that Allen's nickname is 'Stone hands?" Maybe he's only called this in the Colts forum.
  12. Everything is going very well for us. My husband started receiving his social security last December. I still work part time at the hospital,, and I like working less hours now. Since I work mostly in the evening, I have all day to do things and schedule appointments. We recently got a 2013 Ford Fiesta, after four years with no car. It's nice having transportation again, as the buses were OK, but runs only until 8:15 p.m. and doesn't run Sundays or holidays. Thanks for asking.
  13. It sounds like your father is playing daily fantasy football. Every week you can set a different roster depending on match-ups. Fanduel and Draftkings are both daily fantasy. There are different types of leagues, large and small, also there is a type where two players go head to head., winner take all. Some cost to enter (all prices), and some are free. The free ones don't pay money, it's just for points. The amount of money you get depends on how much you paid to enter. Sometimes the top 50% win money, other leagues it's the top 12 or 10 people. With daily, you don't have a set roster, as each week the roster changes. That helps in case a player is injured or suspended. I don't know why it's called "daily" as it goes by week, not day. it's the type of fantasy football I play; I never started a league where one drafts players for the season.
  14. So glad that your granddaughter is doing well. I've heard great things about Riley, and the work they do. I have a question, though: How much longer will she have to do weekly blood draws? Is this permanent, or depending on how her health continues?
  15. No love for the Falcons? Give the team a break; they had a great season. Besides pouting, Cam Newton will be one of the best dressed players in the NFL.
