      Bogie, 

       

      Never be afraid to call it like you see it in either your Saints or the Colts.

       

      I really respect that about you: Your candor, your musical knowledge, your kind treatment of cats; & your knack/talent at evaluating albums, musicians, movies, & television shows you enjoy breaking down. You know your stuff & your presence on this forum is definitely an asset my friend. 

       

      Like CBE stated above, I hope you feel like yourself again soon. Your slant on things always intrigues me. Glad to see Brees & the Bayou turn their season around.

      Yeah Bogie has always had the guts to debate me, for that I respect him. We have had some unreal debates over the years that many may not know about because they weren't on the open threads. Most of them were on his page. Above I meant - If the Saints Defense plays well, not of lol. This keyboard has tiny keys and I do that a lot with O's and I's.

      It's based on the book covering the infamous movie 'The Room'. Tommy Wiseau personally picked James Franco to play himself. I have a hardback of the book and it was really interesting.

      That trailer does look intriguing like Jules said. I remember James Franco & Seth Rogan from the TV series 'Freaks & Geeks." Those 2 do seem to click on screen together. Lovable losers you can't help but root for.

      You pretty sum up my worst fears of it...Was your neighbor's cat a miniature, like really small? That's what I have. All miniatures. The biggest ones are about half the size of a natural cat. 

       

      It's strange though cause it was only this one cat. i have a white one who is a miniature too and she had kittens and tended to them like any other cat (but sadly they didn't live). You mention another cat adopting the kittens as their own, and that is exactly what my white one did several months ago with a kitten that managed to survive to another cat (the mother died sadly) . 

       

      This specific cat though, it's so strange and it's been giving me headaches for months. First off, it went into heat back around March when it was still somewhat cold. It had kittens, and I'll never forget it just having them and leaving them there...she didn't clean them or nothing. It was like she had them, and moved on...I have had to force that cat to tend to them. This last litter that got killed off, I was forcing her into a box to make her feed them.

      In response to your question,my neighbor's cat wasn't real small or miniature. She was over a year old, so didn't have kittens too young. I have no idea why she abandoned them; sometimes it just happens in nature,. 

       

      How is the cat's health now? You had mentioned that her body was broken after having kittens. That's quite  a large litter for such a small cat. 

    4. Synthetic

      Synthetic

       

      Hmmm, that might be a combination of issues come to think of it. This cat is less than a year old too. I didn't think a cat could go into heat at 7 months old, but it happened. 

       

      Her body suffered damage internally. She had 5 kittens and is real little, so it tore her insides up. She had difficulties with using the bathroom, which is hard to talk about without getting graphic and I don't want to gross anyone out. She lost most of her weight too, it's barely anything left to her weight-wise. 

       

      5 kittens though out of a small cat, oh yeah, it's hard to believe cause that's such a large litter. 

       

      All my cats are miniatures. Some of them are bob-tailed. The tail will be like a nub. I had some a few years ago with absolutely no tail at all.

      Here's my guarantee ahead of time...If the Vikings do make the playoffs, I promise that they will lose and either blame it all on the field goal kicker (1998 NFCCG vs Atlanta, vs Seattle a few years ago), or the refs (Drew Pearson hail mary!!!) or something stupid like 'Bountygate' (Saints NFCCG)....I hate this team and their whiny fans so much, cause nothing is ever their fault. They can never just take responsibility for losing. No, it's always someone else's fault or they make up a conspiracy like they did with Bountygate. They're the Hillary Clinton of NFL teams - they think they've automatically won in the playoffs before the game is even played, and then have a laundry list of people and things to blame when it don't go their way.

      The only thing you have to hang your hat on ahead of time is that a Brees led team has often shown up vs. the Pats, even in a loss.

      Your offense btw did look out of sync, maybe it is the Peterson effect and his slow child abusing aazz.

    Week One Colts vs. Rams Prediction Thread

    I've got 16-6 Rams. Wade Philips has a trend where in the first year, his defenses are amazing and rise to a top 5 unit. The Rams do have talent defensively, so he should be able to shape them up. The Colts have so many issues at hand, and while I can't stand Goff and think he's a major bust, I don't see where the Colts defense is really going to stop him...
  11. The game is bound to eventually pass him up...it happens to every great coach. Lombardi couldn't do anything in the 70's, Tom Landry (one of my favorite coaches ever, and I mean this in no disrespect) also didn't age well once the 80's rolled over, and neither did Don Shula or Chuck Noll for that record...Bill Parcells was the man in the 80's but was never quite the same in the 90's....Even Mike Holmgren wasn't really the same coach in the 2000's after he left Green Bay. The game changes decade by decade. That's why Buddy Ryan and Mike Ditka never looked the same again once offenses adapted to the spread and wide open pass happy offenses. If that never happened, every team would be running the 46 defense today. Bill B has been an exception thus far, but it won't last forever....Eventually, the game will pass him up like it did every other genius coach in the decades before him. You are right too that we all used to sit around and laugh over the idea of NE getting #4 until it finally happened against Seattle...They went 10 whole years before winning another one. This is how I feel about things, entirely. There isn't a GOAT and never will be....The only fair way to put is to break down eras and decades and rank them in their respective era where they belong since it's much more fair to compare them to their contemporaries in the same era. Once you start comparing QB's of today's era to the 80's and 70's, it just isn't fair at all since rule changes and how the game used to be played has to be taking into consideration at all times. I hate the top lists of QB's. It never looks right cause you have guys from different eras thrown in there and their stats will look bad compared to one another since modern QB's play in such a pass happy era with rules that benefit them. It should be branched off decade by decade. A top 10 list of the best QB's of the 1970's, 1980's, 1990's and new millennium is far more fair then lumping them all together. There's also those GOOD QB's every decade who are forgotten cause they never won anything and peaked at a rare moment before collapsing, and doing a top 10 list of them by decade, gives people the chance to shine a light on these forgotten good QB's. Every decade has a QB like that. In the 70's it's Bert Jones, in the 80's you have Bernie Kosar and Boomer Esasion, in the 90's there is Jim Harbaugh and late career surge Randall Cunningham...In the last decade, it's probably Philip Rivers as the really good QB who gets forgotten.
  12. You clearly have no understanding of the dead ball era. Every QB's stats are average from back then. I showed you a great deal of information, and you still ignore it and are comparing Bradshaw to a QB who played in a pass happy era with rules that greatly benefited QB's and wide receivers. I showed you stats of other QB's to prove he wasn't the only one who looked "average". I compared Bradshaw to other QB's he played against during his era...That's much more fair than comparing him to a guy who played in a pass happy era where the rules benefited him. I'm pretty sure if you put ALL the top QB's from the 1970's into modern day with passing rules that benefit QB's, then they all would've had dramatically better stats. Not just Bradshaw, they all would've improved since the game benefits QB's now. Put Peyton Manning in Bradshaw's era and with a bad team around him like you said, and he would look no better than his dad Archie did with the Saints...Completely different era... Yeah a crap team that had Marvin Harrison and Edgerrin James - one is in the Hall of Fame, the other lead the league in rushing that year beating out Marshall Faulk. Manning had it sooooo tough throwing to a Hall of Famer and a great running back! And he still went one and done that year. How many times did Peyton go one and done at home with a stacked Colts team that went 12-4, 13-3 or 14-2? Manning is about the last QB you can use the argument of having a lack of talent around. Those Colts teams were loaded...They were almost like clones of the 90's Buffalo Bills in terms of firepower on offense. He had far more talent around him than most big name QB's during the 2000's. The opposite of Drew Brees, who didn't have a single Pro Bowl receiver in 2009. If you want to see a QB win it all with an average cast of B and C grade receivers, there you go. Manning on the other side of that SB, had a loaded team...
  13. Right, let's look at other elite QB's numbers from that same era.... Bob Griese - 192 TD/172 INT Kenny Stabler - 194 TD/222 INT Roger Staubach - 153 TD/109 INT They're average too, right?? Since Terry Bradshaw is average, I guess those guys are too....The only career SB winning QB of the whole 70's decade who had a brilliant TD/INT ratio is Staubach, and even he still threw 100+ INTs. If you are saying he was better than Bradshaw, I'd agree. But calling Bradshaw average just shows you aren't taking into consideration the era they played in. These guys didn't get pass friendly rules to help them out like QB's have had in every decade since then. You also are forgetting that there are people who think Stallworth and Swann have no business being in the Hall of Fame and them getting in was a big deal. They don't get in if Bradshaw isn't there to throw passes to them. I take it you haven't seen many Steelers games from the 70's...Yes, their defense was amazing, but the defense wasn't the entire team. They had an elite offense (at the time, in the era - go look up their stats, and you'll see them ranked in the top 5 of their SB years) that could score when needed. Watch the SB rematch vs Dallas, where their defense completely collapsed and gave up 31 points...Yeah, that defense totally carried Bradshaw. They lose to Dallas if he isn't there to throw 4 TD's to them. Same thing again with the Rams in 1979. That Rams defense was one of the best to ever lose the SB, and the Steelers don't win if Bradshaw isn't there to throw bombs to Swann in the 4th quarter to put the game away. I see you conveniently didn't quote anything I told you about the Mel Blount rule. It was entirely different era back then. You can't just throw a QB of the 70's out there and compare them to every other era since rule changes. Here's the rule changes that ended the 'dead ball' era. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1978_NFL_season Next time you watch a Raiders or Steelers game from before 1978, pay attention to how often their DB's shove receivers to the ground. Blount and Jack Tatum used to completely put receivers on the ground so no pass could go their way. This is also not taking into consideration how back then, you got an automatic intentional grounding penalty for throwing the ball out of bounds...This rule still existed in the 80's btw. The blocking rule that I bolded in the quote is major too. If you ever watch older SB's before 1978, you'll clearly see that there is a big difference in blocking before this rule change. Sometimes, the offensive line and defensive line just run into each other. These rule changes were major and opened up offenses. 1978 was the first year we had "inflated" stats for QB's. Archie Manning magically had the best year of his career after this rule change. Every QB benefited from it. Soon after it, the Air Coryell offense took off in San Diego and Dan Fouts put up record breaking numbers, and then in 1984, Marino broke the record books again. If you're going to call Bradshaw "average", then you better also say it about Griese, Stabler, Staubach and other QB's of that era before the rule change. None of their stats are pretty...If you want to cherry pick his bad stats, you can do that with all of them. There isn't a QB in that era before 1978 who really has amazing jaw dropping stats like QB's since then where the passing rule changes favor them.
  14. I did look at Terry Bradshaw's stats, they're actually pretty good for the era he played in. They were good enough to win an MVP, lead the league in touchdowns at one time, and rack up SB MVP's. You are forgetting that Bradshaw played in what is called the "dead ball era". Every QB before 1977 had a 20-25% INT rate. Look at all the stats, and the only two QB's who consistently didn't rack up INT numbers, were Roger Staubach and Bert Jones, and even they had rough years where their TD/INT ratios aren't that impressive. Look up the Mel Blount rule. Prior to 1977, corners and safeties could bump and knock down receivers after 5 yards from the line of scrimmage. All QB's back then had inflated INT numbers. Even Manning and Brady would've been tossing them everywhere.
  15. You left out Terry Bradshaw, the other guy who went 4-0 in the SB and played in a much different era. Easily the most disrespected great QB to ever play the game. I don't even get how Peyton is in this conversation. Brady already had won rings while Manning was still trying to win a playoff game. Probably the best regular season QB ever, but not the guy I would want in the playoffs...There's at least 5 other QB's I would trust before I trust Manning with home field advantage in the playoffs...

    Week One Colts vs. Rams Prediction Thread

    16-6 Rams, will be an ugly game...
  17. Don't forget Bill B's coaching in the 1990 SB vs the Buffalo Bills. Most people only remember Scott Norwood's missed field goal at the end (Even though Norwood was only 1 for 5 from 40 yards out, meaning this was a long shot to begin with), but they leave out the fact that the Giants had to crawl out of a 9 point hole, and they had the #1 ranked offense in the league shut down that entire game to just 19 points. Buffalo had not converted a third down all day long until that final drive where Thurman Thomas took off. It's always amazing to go back to that SB cause the entire lead up was how the Giants were old and their best players were near retirement and Buffalo's offense was supposed to be too much for them, and then they shocked the world with shutting them down. As for Holmgren, I'm still bitter he left Favre behind to go get a gig in Seattle. If Holmgren stays, I think Favre would've at least made it back to the SB and not been handcuffed down to Mike Sherman and McCarthy's bad coaching.

      And then after they show a wedding with everyone holding up those stupid towels. lmao Probably use them at funerals too.

       

      Well if there is one thing I have going for me this year it's rooting against these clowns. I despise them. Most hate the Pats more, but not me. Steelers are #1. They are the crud of the Earth and for all we know they even win the Super Bowl this season.

You have to see that clip, there was no one there, O'Donnell literally gave that to them gift wrapped. lmao

       

      God I hate the Steelers, same here. My #1 AFC team I hate more than anything, never liked them ever. I like certain historical players on their teams (Bradshaw, Swann, Rod Woodson, Bill Cowher) but I hate that team so much, and I felt so bad for the Colts losing to them in 2005.

    Amazing how many times this drive nearly kills them...The low snaps, and one of them is even fumbled, and Staubach has to run around under pressure. 

     

    The 4th and 17 play is amazing, and then right after, BOOM hail mary to Drew Pearson. 

     

    Dallas almost upset the Steelers in the SB a few weeks later....Of all the Steelers SB's, it's the first one against Dallas that is usually regarded as the best...This wildcard Dallas team was such big underdogs, and almost upset the Steelers. Amazing team.

      Yeah that Ravens team was really Good. I am not so sure they wouldn't of won the SB had they got by us. They would've had HFA over the Pats. McNair had already made one SB. That game was a rare case where our Defense won the game and Peyton rode the D.

      Manning had a rough game here and many will point to his stats as being ugly, but he did everything to get the win. I don't think it's fair to really talk about his ugly stats here as if it's negative. Favre used to have games like this often, where the stats would be ugly but all that matters is coming off with that win. 

       

      That Ravens D was #1 across the board that season. Many were saying "it's 2000 all over again". Most would also have assumed if you held our offense to zero TDs that we lose the game.

       

      I personally loved this game since it showed we could win in different ways finally and in a hostile environment to boot.

       

      I remember at the end of the game Manning did have a clutch third down conversion to Clark. And we ran the ball well to run out the clock instead of trying to play hero with the pass you know.....unlike the Falcons. lmao

      I liked how the Colts defense played in this game. The commentators constantly mention how bad their run defense is, and yet they focused on shutting down the run entirely. 

       

      Our run D was money that entire postseason. Most don't realize just how bad it was during the regular season, dead last and we gave up 375 rushing yards to the Jaguars in a game.

       

      Just a really fun game in Baltimore, I remember not thinking we would ever lose the game either though while it was happening.

      I am never picking Green Bay to win again. Not after 2014 when they had a gift wrapped playoff game handed to them vs Dallas, then a week later put up the greatest choke job ever in an NFCCG game. This is a team that can't even win when the other QB gifts them 5 interceptions...

       

      This past off season, their defense got worse...That's usually what costs them in the playoffs every year besides Rodgers getting outplayed by other QB's. I don't trust the Packers at all...Only way they get in is if the entire NFC regresses, and they have some year like 2010 where they get a perfect match in every playoff game. 

       

      This happens every year though...GB is the favorites every summer and it always ends the same way with a big epic blow out. I knew that whole week leading up to the NFCCG that Atlanta was going to beat them to pieces...I could just feel it.

      I think I am going to roll with Seattle as a safe pick...I trust them a hell lot more than I do GB even though they're a team that is regressing...The Packers can't even beat them in a playoff game where Wilson easily give them 5 interceptions. That's why I have no faith in GB...If not for Atlanta, we would still be talking about that 2014 NFCCG as the perfect choke job...

       

      I've felt for the past 2 years we were going to get a Seahawks/Pats SB rematch. I am probably totally wrong, but it just feels like a safer pick. 

       

      The Saints aren't contenders even if they do have a good season. My gut tells me the saints go 10-6 or 11-5 and I am usually very negative about their chances...This team just feels so much better to me right now, I don't know what it is. But the Panthers concern me cause they're so unpredictable and usually when they're under the radar, that's when they have that special 11-5 season where they come out of nowhere and take it. 

       

      The Giants are another team that is hyped up like GB every year, and I don't see it happening for them either. Their best player is a baby who completely loses his mind the minute a corner can play physical with him....Coughlin isn't there anymore, so any wish that Odell matures and stops imitating Andre Rison, Terrell Owens and Steve Smith, that ain't gonna happen...Odell will be the death of that team, and I don't feel sorry for them at all.

       

      Seattle and GB are safe picks cause they play in god awful divisions. This will be yet another year a mediocre Packers team wins the NFC North cause it's the new AFC South, and Seattle will cruise to an easy division win since no one in the NFC West is competent to give them issues except the Rams who will probably sweep them and still go 6-10.

  21. If the negative reception tonight in L.A. is anything to go by, the Chargers should've stayed in San Diego...That stadium is going to be overrun with opposing team fans all the time. It's going to be worse than when it happened at Qualcom. This is only preseason and yet there are so many empty seats and a visible portion of Saints fans all over the place.

      The Saints defense looked GOOD last night. I was amazed. We had 30 sacks last year and in just 2 preseason games I think we have around 15 right now. 

       

      I know it's only preseason so I am not getting too excited but they looked great against the Chargers starters, and there seems to be a better emphasis on tackling fundamentals which is all I care about. I am so tired of seeing our bad tackling over the years and last night they seemed to be making concentrated efforts at tackling. 

       

      They finally won a preseason game and it came on my birthday. lmao

      I've seen statistics on the preseason games, and NO rookie rb, Alvin Kamara, seems like the real deal. I'd be surprised if the Saints don't find a place for him on their roster. He was quite impressive in the two preseason games.

      Kamara is a star so far in preseason. The fans absolutely adore him, I think he makes the team. Lasco probably won't just for this reason. 

       

      He reminds em of Chris Ivory a bit but with more speed. 

  22. A Forest by The Cure...Robert Smith's guitar sound was so unique at times. All these years later looking back, there really wasn't another guitar player at the time who sounded like him.

      You always post intriguing musical material. I like getting a window into your musical mind Bogie. You are definitely one of a kind Synthetic. That's a complement BTW not an indictment either.

       

      I almost wish you were the director of programming at a music station with a wide bandwidth & range for audiences. 

  23. Check out my new kittens that are as of today, 16 days old. There's 5 of them, they're healthy, chubby and LOUD. The white one especially thinks it's Prince and tries to scream like a banshee with perfect falsetto. 

     

    Note - this little cat is a miniature and it's so hard to believe, as small as she is, she did have 5 kittens. One of them blends in with the pictures cause it's solid gray. These were taken last week before I had to move them. As you can see, one of them is already climbing out. That little white one is a speed demon. I had to move them into a cardboard box cause she was climbing out and following me around the house.

    2 grays, 2 blacks and 1 white. All solid colors, except the black one with the tail has a tiny little white spot under it's chin. No names as of yet or anything...

      Perfect falsetto you say? Hmmm........this kitten is intriguing.

      19 days old, I have to put them outside eventually. I didn't get much sleep the other day cause they're so LOUD. They might be tiny but they're loud as hell. 

       

       

      The white one has escaped multiple times. I had to go out and buy a set of cardboard boxes and I built them a box that they can't climb out of. 

       

      The mother cat gets on my nerves though...I don't think she has proper maternal instincts cause she has to be forced to tend to the kittens. It's difficult to explain without witnessing it. She ignores them, she'll clean them but I have to take her and put her in the box and make her feed them. That's the main reason I brought them inside. If they were still outside, she probably would've abandoned them by now.

      Awesome cat/kitten photos Bogie. Thanks for sharing them & protecting furry felines with whiskers. You Rock!

  25. I hope Tommy Lee Lewis makes the Saints roster so I can spend all year making Motley Crue jokes.

      He did have a big preseason game, better than Ted "dropped pass" Ginn Jr.
