    This Week in the AFC North

    No predictions Z, "The Curse" is in town, but she's not going to be in attendance at the game. The guys are going.... Not sure if she can produce bad karma by just watching the game in Don's living room....

    Forgive me but....

    Riiigggttt. Not allowed, but if we don't see anything, there's no one drinking adult beverages.

    Forgive me but....

    What tia said. Don't wave beer cans around, or fifths of Jack Daniel's. Be discreet and you'll be fine. Also, if you actually want to get in the lot, get there early. The gates open up at 7AM, and it fills up fast.
  4. And in response to you. I see Cal is blabbering again my friend... Why I don't bother responding to him. I think he's getting messages straight from God now. Hearing voices I fear. Not unheard of BTW.... Steve and me have it exactly right. The Bill of "Rights" was written by men on a sheet of paper- not God. It would be just as realistic to pass the 28th Amendment- "ownership of any firearm is hereby declared illegal". POOF!!!! You do realize that we went down that road with the 18th Amendment, don't you? "After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture, sale, transportation, or possession of firearms within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for any purposes is hereby prohibited." Just for fun- to watch Cal have a apoplectic fit.
  5. As I said Steve, something I can't do. I have to keep an eye over on the Browns Board, and it would be too much of a pain to unhide everything they may post over there. Oh, and some of the nuttness that passes for opinion- or facts- here greatly amuses me. I won't get sucked into a debate with anyone who's operating with a few bricks short of a full load anymore. Or at least make a sincere effort not to- unless it's something so totally outrageous it forces my hand. God given right to tote around an AR-15? Please- only because the US government says you can.
  6. Bite me. I saw on a sheet of paper "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." I doubt God wrote that. When I see something I approve of, I'll give an upvote. Limiting myself to 5 minutes a day, or avoiding it outright- checking on the doings in the nut house. BTW, if I wasn't a Moderator, I'd put 1\2 of this clown show on ignore, including you.
  7. Sophomore slump under Freddie skews that stat. 22 td\ 21 int.
  8. I hate beating a dead horse, but it bears repeating Baker DIDN'T throw passes like Trevor yesterday, and he rarely does. Your out of your damn mind if you think there's any conceivable way Baker could get cut- Eeyore. So just stop, and stop arguing with Tia- you're out of your league there son. His only interception in the Chiefs game came as he was being tackled and trying to throw the ball away. Next Gen Stat of the game: Baker Mayfield finished a perfect 8 for 8 for 151 yards on play-action passes, completed 12 of 19 attempts for 214 yards (and an interception) with a time to throw of 2.5-plus seconds, and completed 5 of 6 attempts for 88 yards against the blitz. BTW- 321 yards passing, 11.5 yard average, 97 QBR- same as that bum Tom Brady- you may have heard of him. Finally- we couldn't stop Mahomes scrambling? For the record, that's the same problem every other NFL team faces when they're playing the Chiefs.
  9. I didn't see this until Tex clued me in... If you need any second opinions- let me know- I'll hook you up with my co season ticket holder Don- who's a retired neurologist... Dealt with this stuff for 30+ years.
  10. I've been to Snowshoe several times when there was snow on the ground. It's a nice resort in the middle of nowhere. And some personal trivia. Remember the Bengals-Chargers deep freeze playoff game? That was nothing. We were at Snowshoe that day on top of the mountain and woke up to a balmy -28 degrees with a howling blizzard that put the wind chill in the vicinity of -70. Guys were getting frostbite in five minutes trying to start their cars. Needless to say, the coldest day I've ever experienced.
  11. Aw, hate to disappoint you- bash Biden to your hearts content. It's SOP around here- and I'm not wasting my time anymore...
  12. One other bit of eagle trivia that you may or may not know... On my first visit up to the far north my pal (Alaska resident since 1975) asked him- "how can I see some eagles"? Answer... "I'll take you to the city dump, they're always hanging out there." According to him, Ben Franklin wanted our wild turkeys to be the national bird, much less of a scavenger than eagles. Reason why in that picture I posted, the semi-habituated flock (not afraid of humans) eagles were hanging out at the fish docks waiting for a handout.
  13. RE: Baker getting cut... What are you smoking? Mayfield had one interception the whole game, he was either trying to throw the ball away or hoping his receiver would come back for the ball. RE: scrambling QBs... Mahomes is probably #2 in the NFL behind Lamar Jackson in scrambling ability, and unlike LJ he doesn't fumble when he runs. tia put it best.. That was a damn Mahomes Hail Mary that he got lucky on. 9 times out of 10 it's knocked down, an interception or uncatchable.
  14. Caught the game from 12:00 in the 4th on... disclaimer... I hate the Raiders, but I hate the Ratbirds more. Now they get another national game on a short week on SNF against the Chiefs at home.
  15. I sort of wonder where all those feathers came from? But tradition, ya know... FWIW I do contribute to a couple Indian Schools. There's one in New Mexico where families in the outback have no running water, and rely on the Mission truck to to supply them.
