Re: Justice Ginsburg has died

Is it better for the republican machinery to try to ram a nominee through(which I’m guessing will be unpopular even by gop governing standards), or is it better to turn the election into judges v Biden instead of Trump v Biden? I don’t get this, who didn’t know RBG was going to need to be replaced ...

Who could have foreseen McNeill doing something sleazy? I mean...it's only horsefeathering happened all the time ever.... How many times now has he been hired/fired/ leave of absence due to drug issues over the last 25+ years? 10? Think of all hosts that have been kicked aside to give him one of th...

Re: Video Game Thread

I know there are still several PS4 releases that I'm interested in but if I remember back to the PS4 launch after about 6 or so months all the best games coming out were next gen only. That doesn't sound right at all. Maybe it was longer than 6 months but i didnt buy a PS4 until I realized that gam...

Re: Video Game Thread

How long do you guys think the PS4 will be a viable console now that PS5 is imminent? Spending $400 is not viable for me right now but I'd hate to know I don't have access to the best games currently out there. I know there are still several PS4 releases that I'm interested in but if I remember back...

Okay, I think I've reached the thing that pissed everyone off about TLOU2? I get to what seems to be the climax of the story: Abby has killed Jesse, has a gun to Tommy, and Ellie's unarmed....and now it's time for a "how did Abby get here" flashback? Seriously? Abby's dad is t...

Re: 2020 Playoff Race

I don’t want the Phillies in a 3-game series. They don’t have the pitching depth for a longer series, but in a 3-game series with Nola and Wheeler each starting one game, that leaves very little margin for error. How do we feel about facing the Cardinals, rivarly bragging rights aside? For some rea...

Didnt see PFF grades posted. Oof Trevathan. Jaylen Johnson's numbers back up what we saw on the eye test. https://i.redd.it/p8j7n6wlpbn51.png But at the same time, hell yeah Anthony Miller and David Montgomery. Very impressive https://i.redd.it/qlhehz4npbn51.png

That's right, it was a Sunday night, don't know why I thought it was a Thursday night. Probably because last year we opened the season against GB ...

Re: Week 1: Chicago BEARS @ Detroit Lions

That the guys with the best results in the league do not often replicate their historic success afterwards should not be a surprise. You would do a little better to just look at average production over careers league-wide...which would have its own selection bias because only largely successful pla...

Re: Week 1: Chicago BEARS @ Detroit Lions

Mitch saved his job today. But this is the same Mitch we got in 2018. Is below average until the game plan is thrown out the window and then suddenly comes alive. I’d certainly rather have that Mitch than 2019 Mitch but I’d also really like a QB who is better than both of them. Good comeback win, de...

I hate to be a fairweathered fan but this franchise just doesn’t interest me anymore. Last night I realized that about 92% of the reason I was excited about football was due to fantasy football.

I switched over from iPhone to Android about 5 years ago now. Once I got used to the differences (a couple weeks), it definitely felt much more user friendly.
