  1. When I did my Breaking Bad marathon (62 episodes in 31 days), I also went back and watched every episode that had Gilligan's commentary. He is a genius story-teller.
  2. It doesn't matter which lawyer-politician in a black dress replaces Scalia. The Supreme Court is just there for show, a mere rubber-stamp of the tyranny of the other branches.
  3. I appreciate that. I did look into Sling and saw the Roku offer. My TV viewing had dropped to just a few hours a week anyway. I haven't missed having it. But I didn't want to miss Better Call Saul, so I sought an alternative solution. Chances are I'll go with some combo of Sling and Netflix in the future if I get tired of watching stuff on my laptop.
  4. I'm more excited about tonight than I was for any single NFL game this past season.
  5. After years of talking about it, I finally cut the cord on DirecTV. For Better Call Saul, the NBA playoffs, Masters, US Open, etc., a few friends came through with their info and I am fine watching those things on my laptop.
  6. This pretty much sums up how I feel about the Grammys.
  7. New board made me change my password. Bummer, since ObamaSucks was so easy to remember. Anyway, if you like economics -- especially Keynesian vs. Austrian -- check out Contra Krugman.
  8. This Christmas, I had Goose Island Bourbon County Stout (2014 and 2015), Avery Uncle Jacob's Stout, Founders Project Pam, Deschutes Dissident, Duel Goya Imperial Stout and Stone Russian Imperial Stout (2015 Odd-Year Release Chai).
  9. I agree. Even in redraft, it's a long season. Talent usually wins out.
  10. I won my Toilet Bowl this year, giving me the first choice of draft slot next season. There is a 99% chance I will choose the 1.01 and take Antonio. ppr? Yes, it's all I play. But yeah, I should have stated that.

  12. I'll probably have the #1 pick in my 12-team PPR next year. I will start with Antonio, and I'd have no problem taking Watkins at 24/25 if he's there.
  13. Mike McCarthy, kicking a FG on 4th and 1 at the MIN 10 when he's down 3-0. Monumentally stupid and gutless.
  14. According to ESPN's play by play and the official ruling on the field, both penalties were declined. The yardage should be awarded. There is no reason for a defensive team to decline a penalty and let a play stand that resulted in yards allowed. Agreed...but we're not evaluating how smart it was. We're trying to figure out why the ref verbalized that both were declined but now they are saying one was enforced. Espn play by play still shows both declined. It was a gain of 4 yards net and the half was over. I could easily see a coach getting confused and thinking if they accepted the penalty that there would be another play.Highly unlikely. Anyone who has followed football for more than a week knows a half cannot end on a defensive penalty, but can on an offensive penalty. What seems more likely is the penalty was ultimately accepted but not announced on TV. Highly unlikely? Coaches still do stupid ridiculous stuff all the time. They challenge plays that can't be challenged. They question calls that are no-brainers. Split second decision on an inconsequential play when half is over? Super easy to say declined and go into the locker room without giving it a second thought.That's all well good, except that the play by play and the stats indicate the penalty was accepted.

  16. What he brought to the table was 6 receptions, 90 yards and a half-TD per game in the games he played. Guys get injured. Calling him garbage because he's had one injury-hit season after playing 32 games the previous two seasons is ridiculous.

  18. Oh gee, are all the other injured players -- many of whom are on IR -- also garbage? Sweet strawman. Well, 12 weeks this year he's been questionable or worse mostly because of soft tissue injuries in a contract year. Also persistent bemoaning about being unhappy in Chicago. That equates to garbage for me. It's not a strawman. I'm mocking you, because your comment was ridiculous. Alshon has averaged 17.6 ppg in PPR this year, including 4 games in the 20s. Yes, he's missed six games including this week, but lots of guys miss games. It's football. And he played all 16 games in 2013 and 2014. He's not some injury-prone player made of glass, and he's certainly not "garbage."

  20. I hope he plays. After losing Ingram, Rawls, Yeldon and LeSean in the span of three games, I have to start CJA or Ware. If Alshon doesn't play, I'll have to start both.
  21. I think I'm rolling with Rawls. Guaranteed massive workload. Plus, the Vikings are especially stingy against the pass. The smells like a close, relatively low-scoring, run-and-play-defense type of game.
  22. My options are Ingram, Rawls and CJA. Leaning Rawls for guaranteed workload, but CJA might be the upside play.
  23. Seriously ??What exactly has LaFell done well this year besides drop the ball? Jeffery has been exceptional at times and would be an easy top 10-WR if he remained healthy which he apparently is now.With the uncertainty of NE game planning, this is a no brainer choice. yahoo actually has lafell ranked higher. i was prolly going with jefferies anyway, but thought i might be missing something. ive been waiting for lafell to break out as i was high on him after his finish last season. jefferies has been inconsistant and thought this might be the week. It's Jeffery, but you can call him Alshon. Not sure what Yahoo's smoking, but nobody else has LaFell ranked higher than Alshon. Alshon is a must-start stud. LaFell is a one-week sleeper, and only because he plays the Eagles.
  24. These stats are irrelevant, as season-long totals often are. It's a weekly game. Dynasty is a weekly game? That's the first time I've heard that... The post I quoted made no reference to dynasty. The stats in the post are obviously for this season. As for Watkins this week, I'm not bullish on him as Houston has been playing stellar defense all around and especially against #1 WRs.
