    Antonio Brown

    Exactly what I said, if you'd check my posts... Lalalalala, it's all wonderful in Steeler land. We're the mighty Steelers- even though we didn't make the playoffs this year.... Are you seeing third place in the AFC North this year?

    Antonio Brown

    Don't worry Gipper, Vag is hallucinating the Steeler gravy train will never end....

    Antonio Brown

    If Shazier? What was, not is. The Browns would be a Super Bowl team IF Dorsey was here instead of Kansas City a few years ago building the Chiefs into one.... Dorsey matched you this year with Callaway and Avery in the lower rounds, and whomped you with Mayfield, Ward and Chubb. How's that 2018 draft class doing? Looking at the depth chart, seems like you drafted a bunch of backups. Only a Steeler homer would think Ben's going to play another 3-4 years, and at a high level on top of that. I suppose Joe Haden is good for another 3-4 too.

    Baker Mayfield PFWA ROY

    As MIke said Gipper, there's probably around 6 ROTY awards....I would think Baker has the Pepsi one locked up considering it's fan voting- like ROTW was....

    Antonio Brown

    And we're sorry most Steeler fans think the (recent) past predicts the future.... Well, hate to break it to you- it doesn't. Ben can't play forever. Another news flash- the Steelers didn't make the playoffs, and the Ravens have a better defense than Pittsburg. Dorsey hit his first draft out of the park, and if he repeats it in April- the Steelers are in BIG trouble via both the Browns and Ravens. Could well be Pittsburgh is going to miss the playoffs two years running...

    Who is the bigger idiot

    I knew you'd find the Danny Devito of quarterbacks. But I said recent memory. For the sake of argument, let's use the year Steeler fans use when the NFL started- 1970. There aren't any 5' 7" quarterbacks in the NFL anymore, just like there aren't any 220 pound defensive ends.... BTW, mucking around- Sonny Jurgensen was in the sub 6' club at 5' 11". But not Sammy Baugh at 6' 2".

    Browns hire OC Todd Monken

    LOL, I don't play Madden though....

    Who is the bigger idiot

    Yeah, that was Calvin Murphy 5' 9", also Spud Webb 5' 7", and he won the NBA dunk contest. Great- or just "pretty good"? BTW, researching this, the shortest player in NBA history was Muggsy Bogues, at all of 5'3"- even blocked a shot by the 7' Patrick Ewing. But the shortest NFL QB of recent memory was Doug Flutie at 5' 10". The list of QBs under 6' is might short...

    Browns hire OC Todd Monken

    & anyway you have to change the code words frequently and maybe even on a game to game basis. I'll let Tia comment on this.. Other teams will know really fast what triple x laser wham right means really quick.
  10. We'll cross that bridge when we get to it. The staggering amount of money that would be lost by both sides in a lockout tells me no way in hell would we have a replication of what went on in the NHL in 2012.

    KITCHENS NEW HEAD COACH

    LOL, and the local radio sports guy bashed him for saying "he doesn't know everything yet". Not some slicker like McCarthy who would have an answer for everything. I wanted to call in and ask him if he knew everything there was to know when he first got on the air as a sports jock.... The general ignorance from the commentators is pretty astounding that they haven't even bothered to research Freddie's coaching history, and the big names he's coached under. IIRC, I caught a little blurb in Kitchen's presser that Bill Parcells gave him a call....

    Who is the bigger idiot

    I'll buy Tia's argument that his listed 5' 11" is grossly overstated. The Combine will tell...

    Browns Owner screwing it up again

    And this has what to do with the Browns? cool it guys...

    Who is the bigger idiot

    Our most recent Heisman winner declaring for the NFL draft. Baker may have broken the Heisman curse, but a lot of experts\ pundits think Murray is nuts.... Anyone remember that other Heisman winner from Oklahoma Jason White?

    Who is the bigger idiot

    But- not that I agree with Walter Football, but he does have a point. Now that Baker lit it up, folks aren't worried about size so much. However Murray is 1-1\2 inches shorter than Baker, and 20 pounds lighter.

    This Week in the NFL Playoffs

    FIFY Oh, I totally agree Gipper. Last thing I want to see is the Patriots again in the Super Bowl- barf.

    This Week in the NFL Playoffs

    Only if they can get a pass rush on Brady. Or Mahomes lays 50+ on the Patriots D. LOL, or maybe the Chiefs can put the big freeze on Tom. Early forecast for Kansas City Sunday- high of 14, sunny.

    Browns hire OC Todd Monken

    Freddie said in the presser that he's still calling the plays. Could be Todd will be able to suggest what and when from the sideline. The plus is the terminology won't change, how often have we seen guys having to learn a new playbook every August?

    KITCHENS NEW HEAD COACH

    Freddie, there's a difference between being "happy" and "satisfied". 0-16 to 7-8-1 is serious improvement, so yeah, I'm happy. Like a guy who's been in solitary confinement for 20 years- like the Browns, gets sprung into the general Jail population. I bet he's "happy" but he still wants out of jail..
  20. I got an PM a few days ago that the personal attacks and name calling have gotten out of hand on this Forum. I don't have the time to police here for inappropriate mudslinging. I don't like censoring anyone, but if you have an issue- report the post. Kathy is now the new top sheriff- and in case you missed it, Ghoolie is permanently gone- courtesy of her. But I'd strongly suggest not wasting the Moderation Crew's time reporting everything that you don't agree with. That might just get you a warning. So act like adults instead of throwing sand at one another like kids a sandbox. You can disagree minus the name calling. Larry

  22. Back when we had our wine appreciation class at the University of Dayton- our students universally loved it. When we were discussing Spanish wines, I'd always open up an "extra credit" bottle of Clio after class for those who wanted to try it. OTOH- my very wine knowledgeable pal Bob declares Clio to be a fruit bomb of little redeeming value... My assertion that it's a structured fruit bomb falls on deaf ears..... There's layers of complexity on the taste, and the bouquet isn't too shabby either... BTW, Bob doesn't much care for Clio when it's aged either. Humbug- we've opened bottles with 10+ years of age on them, and thought they were holding up quite nicely.... As I tell folks when I try to describe it- a Spanish wine made from French grapes in an Australian style....

    Division SemiFinals live Chat room

    True dat... Turned it off at halftime, humiliation city- though I saw the Patriots gave them a couple TDs in garbage time.... So where was the Chargers pass rush? Brady gets all freaking day to throw, there can be only one outcome.

    My adventures in wine started with Spanish Rioja way back... Many great wines that don't require a millionaire's budget to purchase...
  25. I'll just leave it at this Cal. you have me and Tour confused. I was never a Rosen supporter. So you loved Allen. About no one else did. And again, when I (or anyone else) put on their Moderator hat- we have to look at the preponderance of evidence. If five other guys go posting "this guy is a serious jerk" Thats 5:1- or sometimes near unanimous in the case of Ghoolie. Well, greatest good for the greatest number. Over on the Browns Forum, damn near everyone (myself included) think\thought Baking up Turnovers arrived from another planet, he's so out of touch with reality. Tour decided to stick up for him. I do respect his POV- but not Baking's, becuase it's f**king crazy to think that. I'll let Steve decide what goes over here, I'm sure as hell not going to spend my time here arguing politics- as I'm not all that much into it.
