      12 dollars...was shocked how cheap those things are. 

       

      Debating on breaking out the #4 jersey for next week....I wore my Favre jersey all through 2007, and again in 2010...they won the SB when I had it.

      Chiefs are still in it but just stall on Offense too much. There is a sack by Harrison. Isn't  he 100 years old.

      HGH is a hell of a drug....Harrison knows. Willing to bet $$$ that he's juiced this late in his career. 

  2. This thread is hilarious. Gruden isn't going back to coaching and your owner is dedicated to the two problem makers who are running his franchise in the ground. I'm sorry, you're stuck with Grigson and Pagano for another year, or "Grigano" as that hilarious rant accurate video called them. This is like 'what if" fan fiction right now....
  3. They were only in LA for one year. I highly doubt this is going to strengthen their fan base. Winning championships is what makes fan bases grow. Just look at the number of bandwagon Dallas and Pittsburgh fans all across the nation. The Chargers have never won anything, which is just enough good reason for people in San Diego not to waste their money at their games to go see a bunch of losers. A lot of Chargers fans burning their memorabilia and calling the team losers, are completely justified. That's hard earned money, wasted on a crap team. This has nothing to do with the fans. The NFL owners are greedy rotten billionaires that strictly do not care about the fans whatsoever. This is a cash grab...It's an easy cash grab rather than a long term solution. The LA market was a disaster in the 90's for the NFL and it's going to be an even bigger disaster now with two garbage teams there. No one likes the Rams and no one likes the Chargers. Just greedy owners with money signs in their eyes, and enraged at cities who refused to fund new stadiums with tax payer money.
  4. Just wait till they play the Raiders. If they want to complain about being overrun by opposing fans, just wait... 100% home games for the Raiders now.
  5. Wait, no Patrick Robinson? Tried to tell you all that he was horrible in N.O. and no one listened to me last summer.
  6. So happy Bama lost. As payback, the Pats can win it all now or Dallas. i don't care. You rarely can have it both, so I'll compromise out of sake of Bama losing. :goodluck:

      All fair points but I think getting a Ring for a QB is much harder than it is for a Superstar Basketball player who has control on what happens on every possession. Dan Marino is major proof of this. The guy never had a Great Defense his whole career, hence 0 Rings. Warren Moon same thing. A QB can only control what happens on Offense. You named a few QB's that have won without being Great/at least Very Good but it doesn't happen much. What 4 or 5 times in 50 SB's. I also disagree that Denver wins the SB without Peyton last season, they would've never got by the Patriots without him  and with Brock, even Peyton haters admit this. Regarding LeBron winning 3 Rings, I think it's a Great accomplishment but when everyone is comparing you to Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson than the expectation to win 5 or 6 is just there. Most people in the media put LeBron in their Category and even put him above Kobe and Bird so he should win more IMO. He also didn't win a Ring until he joined Wade which is a bad look. LeBron's Championship last season was his best one by far, it was his team and his city. Winning with Wade and Bosh is a given for any Superstar player that is hyped as the next Jordan. Wade is arguably a Top 20-25 player of all-time and Bosh was the equivalent to Pau Gasol. Kobe won 2 with a Bosh type and not even close to a Wade type of player.

      Warren Moon had a lot of problems as to why he didn't get to the big one. It all began with the racism from the NFL owners who wouldn't draft him in the 70's. Some could argue that Moon probably owns the record books if he started his career earlier, cause before the current era, Moon's numbers were right up there at #2 next to Marino. Moon went into CFL after the NFL passed on drafting him. 

       

      Moon's other problem was Bud Adams...If you want to write a book about horrible NFL owners, I think Bud Adams is the Jack Kennedy of NFL owners and has the most dirt and it's not hard to find reasons to hate him. He of course, blamed Moon for a playoff loss and traded him, but before that, Bud Adams meddled with that team so much, he made them dysfunctional and created lots of issues. 

       

       

      I would agree on Dan Marino. I think Marino is the greatest example of a team failing a quarterback. If Marino just had ONE ring, absolutely no one would make fun of him. He would've went down as the greatest quarterback to ever play the game if he just got one ring. 

       

      I highly recommend watching the ESPN short series "Top 5 reasons why you can't blame Dan Marino". That little mini-documentary goes into specifics as to how the Dolphins really failed Marino on all counts. He went 18 whole years without having a running back rush over 1,000 yards. At one point, they literally had a UPS driver off the street play running back. 

       

      The Dolphins had a streak too of defensive draft busts. All through the 80's, all their defensive draft picks were major busts. Of that era, they have a lot of first and second round draft pick busts. Miami didn't hit on a defensive draft until the 90's and by then, it was too late...

       

      These guys played in an entirely different era too...Even had they got to the SB, it's no guarantee they win it cause the NFC dominance lasted from 1984 to 1997...and most of those SB's were boring bloody blow outs. Even if Moon or Marino get to SB's, it's a big question of "if" they would've won, cause those NFC teams were juggernauts. Marino had to play the 15-1 49ers who just crushed everyone that year. 

       

      Marino could've went to the Super Bowl four other times - 1985, 1990, 1992, and 1994. 

       

      My gut is always on 1994. That was the last year of his career where he was truly amazing and put up a memorable season. They lost in the playoffs to the Chargers in the memorable game with the score 21 to 20. They lost by one point, thanks to a missed field goal....Had they won that game, they go to Pittsburgh for the AFCCG and I doubt Marino loses in his home town of Pittsburgh...but then you go to the Super Bowl and play the Monopoly 49ers who abused the Salary Cap to the max in 1994. No one was beating the 49ers that year, when they threw everything in the bank at free agents and literally bought a SB where they had nothing but All Pros on defense.

      Brock beat New England in the regular season...I don't see Peyton winning that game with how crazy he was throwing interceptions everywhere. For all the hate Brock gets, Denver don't win crap last year if they don't get home field advantage and that was Brock's biggest win. Even with home field, they were still barely squeaking those wins by the skin of their teeth. As much as everyone bashes Brock, they still needed every last one of his wins, especially the New England game that they were down 21-7 and he engineered a comeback in OT. 

       

      In the Super Bowl, Peyton did nothing but get them in field goal range. All touchdowns were scored with help of defense and special teams. And Denver got so lucky the turnovers they caused didn't result in points. 

       

      I have no doubt in my mind, Brock could've won it last year. Hell, throw in a 40 year old Favre, who still played extremely well at his old age, and you probably do get TD's rained down in the SB. 

       

      I hate the Broncos. At least we don't have to worry about seeing them in the SB again for another 10 years. Wade Philips is gone too, so no more awesome defense for them.

      Regarding LeBron winning 3 Rings, I think it's a Great accomplishment but when everyone is comparing you to Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson than the expectation to win 5 or 6 is just there. Most people in the media put LeBron in their Category and even put him above Kobe and Bird so he should win more IMO.

       

      I didn't mention MJ for a reason. 

       

      This is what I mean though about the ring argument in basketball, which I've told you before is like a marketing invention. Kareem has 6 rings, 1 more than Magic yet his name never comes up in this conversation. Probably cause Kareem don't have a massive marketing campaign behind him. It's been pounded in our skulls since the 90's "MJ is the greatest". Here we are 20 years later and the media still loves to push this...MJ is like Aaron Rodgers right now, you're just not allowed to criticize him, and I don't see why, cause while MJ was great, there is also other great players out there too. 

       

      Before LeBron, it used to be Kobe who they hated on the most and used the annoying MJ comparisons. Kobe "can't win without Shaq" was a favorite for years. LeBron became the new target after he left Cleveland. 

       

      A part of me deep down isn't going to care if Golden State wins it this year, cause maybe if Durant gets a ring his first year there, maybe...just maybe it will kill the ring argument for good. No one wanted to give LeBron credit for the Miami rings, and they sure as hell aren't going to want to give credit to Durant when he does it.

       

      I'm sure too that after LeBron is done, whatever new awesome player replaces him, will also get compared to MJ for old time sake. It's a never ending story.

      IMO I would easily put LeBron over Kobe. The reason why is that he's just a far better "all around" player than him. 

       

      Comparing the two, I like LeBron more cause he isn't afraid to get others involved on the court. You saw this in Miami when he would routinely pass the ball to Chalmers and Bibby and let them put up 3's. He does this in Cleveland too, as shown in the Finals when he kept getting Kyrie and JR Smith involved in the game...

       

      Kobe on the other hand had a very bad habit of being a ball hog and that is a criticism that used to be common when Shaq was on the team and the entire team used to get frustrated with him going into hero mode often. Phil Jackson had a history of butting heads with Kobe over this stuff.

       

      NBA players should be judged by talent, not rings. Kobe is a pretty good example of being on loaded teams. The Shaq-Kobe team had a really good bench and he also had Shaq in his prime playing lights out. That 3-peat wasn't just cause of Shaq and Kobe, those teams were great all around. The 2008 Lakers also were great all around, and had star talent on their bench. it definitely helped when they had Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom coming off the bench.

      Well you bring up fair and good points. At least you and I can debate in a civil manner which is rare for a message board and for 2 people that have different players and team likes. We both do hate Bama though. 

  7. Game over. It was over after Clemson went down 14-0. You don't beat Alabama when you constantly mess around and turn the ball over. Hang your head in shame Clemson. Just like that Giants...One whole week of running their mouths and all this big talk only to screw it all up.
  8. You must be forgetting something if you think 2009 was some miracle run and we haven't had success since then... 2010 - 11-5 2011 - 13-3 2013 11-5 The Colts under Pagano in their 11-5 seasons went 6-0 playing the worst division in the league, and then split 5-5 with the rest of the NFL. They've hit a brick wall since last year when the division began to improve and a good time rose in Houston who wasn't afraid of them anymore. He has a 20-24 record playing teams outside the AFC South. Payton has boasted a top 5 ranked offense every year he's been with the Saints since 2006. Pagano's job is supposed to be defense but the Colts defense keeps getting worse every year.
  9. Rex inherited a top 5 ranked defense when he came to Buffalo and they gradually declined every year. I'm sure that is the reason he was fired. They went from a top 5 ranking down into the 20's in the years in all his seasons.
  10. This is a really good hire on both sides for Jacksonville. Watch out Colts, you may never win another division again now that Pagano and Grigson are returning and both Houston and Tennessee vastly improved this year. Perhaps the AFC South is finally becoming a respectable division.
  11. Too bad that poor wall can't fight back...
  12. Yes. It's the playoffs and you spend your week preparing by taking a flight down to southern Florida to party it up at clubs and go out on a boat? You don't see the Pats or Packers doing this. You celebrate after you win it, not before. The Giants acted incredibly arrogant before this game. Trash talking the Patriots about how they didn't want to see them again. The comments about Green Bay too. Just cause you beat both these teams in '07 and '11 don't mean nothing now. It's a new year, and you don't have any of those same players from those old teams, so forget bragging. It was proven that the Giants defense this year was incredibly overrated. This wasn't the defenses of the past. Odell dropped 4 passes in the first quarter that cost the Giants. They could have been up 14-0 early on and dominating that game. Tavarres King had the best game yesterday of the Giants receivers. Guess what? He was the only one who didn't go out to Miami to party on playoff weekend. Odell is a locker room cancer. I'm starting to wonder if Coughlin left because he didn't want to put up with this anymore. Odell revealed himself to be a punk the minute he rammed himself helmet to helmet into Josh Norman last year. If you watch the Giants regularly, he was getting fined back and forth early in the season for slapping around defensive backs and getting into shoving matches with them. Kicking nets, punching holes in walls, I hope the Giants keep this guy forever. He offers great headlines when they lose.
  13. Go look at Gruden's playoff record. He inherited a team Dungy built, who had a much better defense than the Colts. One that could easily go down with the ranking of "historic defense" and Gruden never won another playoff game after 2002. You should go talk to Tampa Bay fans about Gruden. They'll tell you how great of a coach he was that he ran their offense in the ground and lived solely based off a defense that Dungy built. Dungy gets such little respect around these fans, it's pretty sickening. Take him away, and Manning don't get a ring at all with the Colts.
  14. David Bowie would've been 70 today.
