    Anyone have any news? It’s been 24hours

     Eagles secondary is bad. Hargreaves would be their worst CB. That's how bad he is.

    Adam Gase is safe. Jets CEO Christopher Johnson says NYJ won’t make any coaching changes during or after this season. Gase is coming back for 2020.

     not sure why a lot of jets fans want gase gone.  at least give him a chance and you cant expect him to win games with this poor a roster

     Because he is terrible. A locker room disaster, who singlehandedly ruined what little the Dolphins were building, and is doing the same to the Jets.  Darnold has regressed. Bell is uninvolved. The roster really isn't that bad when you look at the totality of it, with the offseason moves that were made.

     

    How long will he continue to make a living based off of one historic Peyton Manning season?

    So how is Disney Plus? Anyone grab it yesterday? Enjoying it so far?

     Love it. The Mandalorian is great. If this is the quality of Disney Plus originals going forward then we're in luck. Also love the vault. All these old Disney films that I grew up with are great, not to mention all the great stuff for the kids. 

     

    I can see me watching Disney Plus more than Netflix overall.

     I'm thinking this is the premiere paring with Netflix if you're cutting the cord. Netflix and Disney + combined should hit just about everything. And if you opt for the bundle, you get Hulu too to cover all the bases. 

     

    And most folk already have a version of Amazon Prime, so that's even more options! All for less $$$ than cable.

     The only reason I'm keeping DirecTV is that my wife is addicted to TLC and Bravo, neither of which have immediate episodes via pay streaming services. If it wasn't for that I'd definitely cut the cord. Netlflix, Hulu, Disney, and Amazon are plenty enough (Along with the incoming HBO Max, which will have a really solid library)

     

    The only three that don't entice me as much is the NBC Peacock, CBS All Access and AppleTV+.  Not enough unique content for the price.

     Sling TV has a blue package for $15 that has Bravo and TLC and a plethora of other channels too.

     I'll have to check that out then. Because I'm tired of AT&T.

    Very interested to see how the committee would handle a scenario where Georiga is a 2 loss team but ends up as an SEC champion. 

     Since LSU will be SEC champion I don't think we'll need to worry about that issue. Cool

    I still cant figure out how the hell a guy like Freddy Kitchens still has a head coach job. That guy is just so clueless and its embarressing to watch. He played verticals on the pats every passing play... 

     I think they kind of knew that he wasn't fully ready when he accepted the job because he had limited experience prior.  I am more shocked guys like Dan Quinn, Pat Shurmur still have jobs. 

     Shurmur is helped by being employed by the Giants. They like an air of stability, and they don't want to fire yet another coach mid season (or even after just two seasons).  

     

    Quinn is helped by his Super Bowl appearance. The Saints win actually helps as well. If they turn it around this 2nd half he'll stay. 

     

    Kitchens just doesn't have anything going for him. He has a mostly solid roster, but he is too green and is obviously in over his head. They overpaid for skill positions, but ignored the trenches, something that falls on the GM. But Kitchens needs to scheme appropriately to counter those issues, and he hasn't at all.  The Browns window is only another one or two years before the big contracts are up for renewal so they don't have time to train a coach on how to coach on the job.

     possibly but theyre 2-7 and there has been talk for a while that arthur blank is thinking about firing...

     

     

     

     

    I got no dog in this fight personally, it would be quite a feat for the falcons to maintain that level of defensive intensity that they showed vs the Saints last week, given all their injuries. Would be impressive indeed

     As a Saints fan who thoroughly enjoys whipping up on the Falcons whenever possible, Quinn appears to have been a pretty solid coach, and he has definitely made them more competitive than usual. I do think he is the type who needs two solid coordinators to handle things, while he oversees the team as a whole.

    I’m still in combat pro

     I feel like if I switched back to combat pro I would be an absolute mess. 

     I finally started using builder pro a couple months ago after all the rest of my time using combat pro. Definitely would not want to go back.  Takes a bit getting used to but it's so much better.

     Yup - I definitely couldn't go back. I'm not good at building by any means but it definitely makes it easier. I've been wondering if a pro controller may help. 

     My son wants one of those elite Xbox controllers, which I'll be getting for him on Christmas. It'll be interesting to see how much better it improves play.

  • posted a message on Alabama Crimson Tide 2019 thread - Bama vs LSU !!!

    Gonna be interesting.

     

    I feel like the top three are set in stone (as long as they win out).

     

    that 4 spot though. Very tough to figure. Alabama could do it if they win out, if Georgia loses to Auburn. Probably would need Oklahoma and Oregon to lose as well.  If both of them win out one of them could sneak in over Alabama just as conference champs.

     

    The fact that Bama's one loss was a close one to the #1 team helps. But they need to crush everyone else the rest of the way to have a prayer.

    So CM Punk is back in WWE 👀

     Highly doubt he comes back to wrestle any time soon.  And I'm not even sure if I want him to wrestle because he'll probably be a shell of his former self like the Hardys, Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, etc.  are

     He’s back for backstage but I’m sure they will inevitable have him do 1 more match let’s say wrestlemania 

     Difference between Punk and the others that you mention is that he's still young enough.  He's not far from his prime.

     

    Likely he won't wrestle, but just the fact that he's in WWE at all is a big thing.

    Stay safe... 

     

    Meanwhile in the UK - places that haven't flooded for 70+ years, are currently under water - with more rain forecast. 

     

    While the prime minister insisted after the first day - "it's not a major crisis". Eh? Communities have lost their homes before Christmas. People were forced to sleep in Shopping Malls... How is that not a major crisis? 

     

     Not sure if it's the same in other countries, but most climate deniers here in America are bought and paid for by big corporations.  As long as those big corporations are making money and paying our politicians, little consequential will be done.

    Is The Mandalorian a weekly show?

     yes, it'll be released over time, I think that's how Disney plus is doing most of their shows.

    Just watched the mandalorian as well. Highly recommended. 

     

    Was a fun ride, a great opening with an interesting twist....felt like Star Wars without being derivative.

     

    Can't wait to see how this story proceeds.
