    By all historical accounts, Tucker actually made a better car than the Big 3..or 4 or whatever at the time. Per the movie it seemed that they knew he built a better product than they did...and did everything they could to destroy him. As I understand it, of the 51 Tuckers that were built, as many as like 49 of them are still out there in operating condition. (of course they are well taken care of). And, apparently, one of recently sold for like 2.6 million...in 2012 https://www.autoblog.com/2012/01/21/barrett-jackson-2012-1948-tucker-torpedo-bid-up-to-over-2-6-mi/

    It figures that you would given an ignorant answer.

    Steelers writer Ed Bouchette

    And Tomlin took that group to 2 Super Bowls, winning one in 2008 and losing one in 2010 , where Cowher took them to just the one in 2005. And then that group all got old and retired and bypassed by teams with better, younger talent....and the Steelers FO did not replace them with similarly talented players. So....what is your point faced with these facts?
  8. Well...you think that apples and turds are both nutritious....so you are a bad person to rely on for judgment.

    I know of 2 Mark Wahlberg's.....the actor fka Marky Mark.....and the guy from Antiques Road Show. Is this one of them....or is there a third Mark Wahlberg?

    You have Collins, Schobert, Kirksey as starters in the 4-3....plus backups in Orchard, Mychael Kendricks, Jermaine Grace, Burgess, Avery Gennard. Who among this group do you consider to be playmakers and those who are not? (and I don't give a crap about their contracts....only about their ability to play...whether they make farthings or millions)
  11. I have seen better metaphors....and analogies. In fact, I like my Edsel/Mustang analogy I used elswhere. But keep trying Butch.

    I am not overall really a "car" guy.....but I had been watching some of the shows that were recently on the History Channel about the history of the Auto Industry. And what I came away with are a couple of outstanding points: 1. Lee Iacocca is perhaps the most brilliant guy in the history of the auto industry. He personally basically saved the Ford Motor Company from their Edsel disaster becuse it was he that came up with the design and marketing strategy for the Ford Mustang. It was also he, while with Chrysler, who developed the concept of both the mini-van...AND the SUV. 2. John DeLorean was also a brilliant auto designer.....though he was a pure rogue. He basically invented the concept of the Muscle Car when he converted a Pontiac Tempest Sedan into the Pontiac GTO. He took essentially a concept that was used only in Europe on the racing circuit and brought that muscle to the streets of America. And of course other car makers followed suit with designs of their muscle cars....like the Dodge Charger, Plymouth Roadrunner, and turning some Mustangs and Chevy Novas into muscle cars. And, of course, after he left GM...he started his own company with the design of his iconic DeLorean. Now....that car basically failed as a mass produced vehicle...because of problems with the engine, electronics...etc. etc. nevertheless, it is still about the most Iconic design of a car we have had. Just ask Robert Zemekis, the producer/director of Back to the Future, and Steven Spielberg who directed Ready Player One. 3. There may be some new brilliant auto designers...and other guys that I have not mentioned, but these 2 stand out from the shows that I watched.

    Right. I mean, Ford made both the Edsel and the Mustang.....and this is like car critics in 1964 basing their ratings of the future of the Mustang on the past performance of the Edsel. And we know how foolish of an exercise that would have been.
