Browns OL has been fairly dominant. Play calling has been terrific. WR have made enough plays.

Hoyer's been great, but lack of arm strength and inability to scramble are problems. With a superior QB--they're 3-0 or 2-1.

Why are they 1-2? Good offense. Bad special teams. Equally bad defense.

My larger drafting complaint drafting is disappointment in Mingo (no smarts or strength), Haden (not elite), and Gilbert (growing pains).

Other defensive problems are Whitner (3 weeks--no game changing plays) + a DL not getting pressure.

Browns are 31st in yards allowed.

Gallo Blanco Cafe in Midtown. Easily the best tacos I've ever had in my life. Amazing happy hour. Excellent beer list. If you have to travel a little or take a cab to get there--totally worth it.

Also really enjoyed Citizen Public House in Old Town Scottsdale, which is more nearby ASU.

Also, who'd of thought Alyson Hannigan was the show's only actor to could carry a dramatic scene.

Pleasant surprise of finale.

Comment 31 Mar 2014

The ballsy nature of the show's premise was great: this show WILL be around long enough to tell you the long story of how Ted meets his wife.

Too bad the show diluted itself with Robin-loves-Ted, then Barney, then Ted, then Barney, then her career, then Ted.

Also, there's NO WAY Ted waits years to marry the mother of his children. The show loved making flat caricatures out of Ted, Robin, Barney, Marshall, and Lily until it was suddenly not convenient.

I feel like the writers decided "Shit, we can't pull off Ted developing a relationship with the mother" and just punted.  

Thank god Community is weird without being moored to a junk narrative.

Had to let him go. Happy for Grady and hope he succeeds but it was time to go in another direction with Bourn.

Comment 31 Mar 2014

Very consistent with the overall tenor of the show. Every excellent line or life affirming plot point was negated by some baffling creative decisions. Or perhaps the execution was the problem?

The show became less about meeting the mother and more about the messed up, codependent relationship between Ted and Robin.

They didn't even try to make the mother appear sick or to make Ted appear grieved. The "Ted reads to Mother on her deathbed" scene was embarrassing. 

The transition from "Ted finally gets married" to "Mother dies" to "Ted ends up with Robin" took what, 4 minutes?

I enjoyed when the finale got dark and the impossible characters got their comeuppance (Barney / Robin divorce, the "gang" breaks up).

If this break happens 3 seasons ago maybe the finale leaves me feeling less disappointed. Can say the same about many other comedies. The ones that last have to go dark (M*A*S*H, for instance) every now and again.

THIS. Every team must exercise the competitive advantage they have over the other squad. This year the Buckeyes have a 4 RB that would carry the ball 20+ per game with any other team. This offense never fully utilized Hyde, Hall, Elliot, and Smith when it needed the difficult yards.

Comment 07 Dec 2013

The bad news is if the Bucks go 12-0 next year they'll get zero respect. This team had a great opportunity and blew it, which we all knew was going to happen at some point with such a horrible defense.

Comment 07 Dec 2013

Feels like MSU early success more due to Bucks making mistakes (snap count, PI penalties). Time to smooth things out, get a TD, and correct the natural balance of B1G football.

Comment 04 Dec 2013

The Buckeyes will likely lose in that case. I see a team that plays amazing on-the-ball defense + can score in transition. If hot from outside it'll be tough to stop (as we see tonight). If cold against a team with legit bigs--trouble.
