What!?  Why am I on the short list?  I've been good lately.

Comment 29 Apr 2016

I was more referring to the fact that they did draft new fans in 1995 and they got two Super Bowls out of it.

Are you upset that my awesome zingers got deleted?  I'm not, I just wish they could have lasted a bit longer for all to enjoy.

You are correct that Ben had the worst ever passer rating for a winning QB.  That was I believe his third year in the league.  He never really came into true form until the SB run in 2008 and has been there ever since.  It takes time for a QB to develop.  Hell, even Tom Brady wasn't blowing up stat lines when the Patriots won 3 of 4.  Defense and a running game go a loooong way in the NFL.  Tough to find a Super Bowl winner that didn't excel in both.

I'm also a Stillers fan, AV.  I think the Browns drafting Jones would be smart but only if they move forward with the understanding that he's the guy while also building an offensive line and running game.  You look at guys like Roethlisberger, Brady, Rodgers and you see that there was a structure in place that enabled those guys to be great.  Andrew Luck is mighty good but he looked like shit this year because he was peeling himself off the ground every dropback. 

I'm a firm believer that a good system will build a franchise QB more oft than not rather than the QB himself.

It wouldn't have mattered if they drafted him.  The reason Ben thrived in Pittsburgh is because he was in a situation where he could manage the game.  The Steelers already had a running game in place with a pretty damn good offensive line.  It's safe to say the Browns haven't had that since they came back.

David Carr was probably one of the most talented QBs in the early 2000s.  Houston's terrible line and lack of a running game at the time pretty much beat him into submission.

Sorry, RT.  I had to DV this.  Only because it's a photo of something that my eyes can't unsee and there's an awful lot of jiggling under that cape.

Comment 18 Apr 2016

It's not as if people like this never existed until today.  The only difference is that the internet provides them a medium to spew their bullshit. 

Also, 99% of people on the internet seem to be illiterate.

I don't think I've ever been more disappointed than when I combined two Woody tiles to get a 4096. 

Comment 14 Apr 2016

guess what team won the most games and titles in that 'golden era'? The ones that didn't play like assholes and beat you with skill, not hard fouls.

Right.  Because Dennis Rodman was a saint.

Is the NBA 'back in the day' BACK ?

No.  When they let defenses toss Curry to the ground then maybe it'll be back.  If Curry was playing in the early 90s, you can bet your ass he's have been tossed on the floor more than a few times to send a message and Charles Oakley would probably do his damndest to decapitate him in the lane.

The NBA today isn't anywhere close to as physical as the "back in the day" game you refer to.

This circus clown show that has taken place at every venue he's been to has been embarrassing.  Kobe one of the greatest ever?  Even a bum Michael Jordan got the Wizards to 35+ wins in his twilight and Kobe can't even win more than 16!?

I'm tired of the lackies claiming that he's contributed so much to the game.  He was/is a selfish egotistical asshole and the furthest thing from a team player I've seen.
