  1. Keep it real, Martavis.
  2. Cannot believe he's STILL our best pass rusher. They have to double-dip at OLB in the draft and/or free agency. This is a great deal....
  3. Formatting isn't great there, but a few takeaways. 1) Roster bonuses can be converted to signing bonus and prorated across the length of the deal if the Steelers unexpectedly need to clear significant cap space. 2) They wisely dumped most of the money into the first three years of the deal. If Roethlisberger plays out the last 3 years of his deal and then hangs it up (as I suspect may be the case) -Brown is very "cuttable" after 3 seasons without a catastrophic accelerated cap charge. They could move on after the 2019 season with only a $7.6M dead-money charge, which isn't cost-prohibitive at all. I don't think any expects his play to fall off a cliff after his age 31 season, but if it did, or if the Steelers decide to go whole-hog into a rebuild if Ben retires, then they would be off the hook for $24mm in salary over the 2020-2021 seasons with a minimal cap hit. Or,. they could look to trade him - 2 years at $31.4mm is steep, but we don't know how that will look in 2020 - that may be a bargain deal after Beckham et al get new contracts. If he's still a 100 catch, 1,200 yard, 10 TD guy at age 31, someone will gladly accept that contract. This is a very well-structured deal, and one under which everyone wins. Moving 2017 salary to 2016 to keep him happy and on the field essentially makes this a 6-year megabucks deal (under which he's already played 1 season) but doesn't hamstring the team. It makes him the highest paid WR in the NFL and kept him happy even under the auspices of the old deal while allowing the Steelers to not break precedent of only negotiating non-QB extensions when players are 1 year from free agency.

  5. You're right. When I originally saw that he was re-signed, it was either incorrectly printed or I mis-read it as 3 years at $5.5 million PER. Never looked again. That's what I was basing this on, so forget pretty much everything I said.
  6. Timmons is only 30 (but will be 31 at the start of next season) - unless you're talking about his age at the end of an expected 2-year deal. I think the main factor with him will be that they paid Vince Williams to be the starter there when it appeared Timmons was on the downslope - he rebounded and had a good year, but they're kind of pot-committed to Vince at this point. They can't pay Timmons what he's "worth" on the open market and also pay his back-up starter money.
  7. If he's looking for a meth-addled hooker, accept no substitute.
  8. Oh, and if you go to Christini's, their violinist can play something from almost any band. He even played some Slayer last time I was there.
  9. If you're going to Church St, Kres Chophouse is usually solid. Millions of bars in that area, the Courtesy is a craft cocktail joint that's hipster but has good drinks. You can walk around there and find something that appeals to you. Just go to the corner of Orange and Church and there are bars north on Orange and on all the surrounding streets. Casey's on Central is a popular happy hour spot. Just about everything is going to be relatively dead on a Wednesday though. There's a place called Schumann's Jager Haus on Church that has good German food & beer if that's to your taste. Just outside downtown in the other areas I mentioned are some of my favorite restaurants in the area. Ravenous Pig, 4 Rivers Smokehouse, Tako Cheena, and Pig Floyd Urban Barbacoa. Google them for menus. Don't know what kind of spots you prefer for libations. Closer to I Drive is Restaurant Row, lots of pricey but good options. Christini's and Eddie V's are very good but not cheap. I've heard Morimoto at Disney Springs is awesome but I've never been.
  10. I pimped this option in the Disney thread a bunch of times, but people prefer to be on property. I did this when I got married, we had the ceremony and a small reception at Championsgate and then adjourned to a house like this for all-night festivities. It was big enough for all my friends to stay there, so no one had to drive anywhere.
  11. Orlando Brewing Co has some decent offerings, but you're better off looking for good beer bars than breweries there. Nothing of interest in the area Smails is in, though. Anything I'd recommend in terms of beer or food is a 20-30 minute cab ride/Uber. He's far away from the better stuff. Everything is in the Downtown/ Thornton Park / Milk District / Winter Park area.
  12. Damn it. I Hippled it.
  13. Is Grand Mariner a cheap Grand Marnier knock-off?
