Re: NFL playoffs 2021

With it looking like he's set to retire, where would you all rank Brees among the best QBs you've ever seen? When I was a kid the QBs I remember watching were guys like Len Dawson, Fran Tarkenton, Roger Staubach, Johnny Unitas, Bob Griese, Kenny Stabler, Earl Morrell, Greg Landry, John Brodie, Terr...

Re: Chicago Bears 2020

Hopefully not health related as Pagano had cancer. Outside of health, I think Pagano left because Nagy is a dbag who won't take accountability for a terrible offense. After the defense has far out played the offense throughout Nagy's tenure, the first cracks in that defense and Nagy has the gall to...

Re: Panthers G2

The defense on the high ball screen was brutal. That needs to be fixed. The defense in general wasn't real good at UNI. This to me is maddening. We have continuously seen this from Wardle's guys --- who is considered a good defensive coach. Consistently going under the screen and then wondering why...

Re: La Russa back to the South Side?

Ok jeez, I didnt mean to make it sound like I dont think drinking and riving is a big deal. Im just saying that I think it speaks more to his ego and bad judgement then it might speak to an alcohol problem. Or maybe he is a raging alcoholic, who knows. But in any case, it was a bad decision to bring...

Re: La Russa back to the South Side?

A couple of DUI dont necessarily equate to a drinking problem. I have no idea what his drinking habits are, but the DUI I think speak more to his ego. For all we know those are the only 2 times hes drank and driven and just has bad luck. Most likely not but we dont know. Certainly bad decisions on h...

Re: 2020 B1G-ACC Challenge

I didnt tune in until late in the game and even then wasnt listening, just watching. But it did seem that Bilas was pontificating alot and not calling the game? I kind of like him as a color, but sometimes it seems that they talk to each other rather than pay attention to the game. Is that just me?

Give me as much of East, Nolan, Childs, Mast, Henry, Ville as they can handle. Give me Hannah as much as he can get. Boya, McAdoo, Kinsby can fill in where needed.
