    2018 Awards

    I think I might actually change my pick. Maybe last night is biasing me with a small sample size, but I-- yeah, we're going to do it. Too many Colts be damned.

    2018 Awards

    MVP: Patrick Mahomes It's between Brees and Mahomes, no one else is even close, IMO. Brees was more efficient, but Brees also has a better supporting cast, IMO. This one is very close and I'm okay with it going either way, but I'm giving it to Mahomes. Runner Up: Drew Brees Brees had a fantastic season and truly deserves an MVP award since the NFL stole one from him already. I am okay with either/or here. He finally has a running game to support him and it shows. He knows he doesn't have to do it all, even though he still can when called upon. OPOY: Todd Gurley : Gurley has been fantastic all year long, a true engine that drives the Rams offense, but I think he takes a tiny fraction of a hit due to how well CJ Anderson ran in his absence. The Rams Oline is extremely good at run-blocking and it showed there. Runner Up: Christian McCaffrey : The first player since LT to record 100 receptions and rush for over a thousand yards in the same season, Cmac tried his best to put Carolina on his back after Cam's injury. He will be a force in the league for awhile, and it's good to have a playmaker at the RB position. DPOY: Aaron Donald : Donald is the DPOY and I don't think its all that close, though Mack had the better first part of the year. Donald has been his usual self, and he is going to join Watt and Taylor as the only defensive players to win the award multiple times. Runner Up: Khalil Mack Mack was the clear frontrunner for this award in the first half of the season, but he fell off a bit due to injury and due to Donald just taking over games. Still looks like a foolish trade for the Raiders. OROY: Quenton Nelson : Nelson is the best guard in the NFL after one year, fight me. He has been extraordinary for the Colts, a first-team All-Pro and should be a perennial pro-bowler. He has helped shape the Colts identity as a bruising run blocker and helped keep Luck upright the whole year. Runner Up: Saquon Barkley : Barkley was great right out of the gate, and he only needs a QB to help him out and get this team back to relevance. He is a fantastic RB and I think he will be great for a long time to come. Honorable Mention: Baker Mayfield Really I would be fine with any of these three. I think Nelson is the best player at his position, but Baker injected life into a team and a city that desperately needed it and he played extremely well down the stretch. DROY: Darius Leonard : Leonard and Nelson are the first teammates to both make first team All-Pro as rookies since 1965, and both of them highly deserve it. Leonard led the NFL in tackles as a rookie and added two picks, four forced fumbles, and seven sacks. Runner Up: Derwin James : James played a difficult position amazingly well in his first year. He is a tackling machine that doesn't miss many plays and has helped shore up a Chargers secondary in desperate need of it. CotY: Frank Reich : This is a lot of players from one team, but I just love what Reich did in Indy. Just fantastic coaching, and conventional wisdom be damned, I like going for the win instead of the tie. They won 9 of their last ten going into the postseason. The Colts got lucky McDaniels backed out. Runner Up: Matt Nagy Nagy took a team that had been last place in the North for four straight years and guided them to a 12-4 record. I think he is set up well for success in the future and it was an impressive debut for the first year head coach. Honorable Mention: Pete Carroll :Carroll's team was supposed to be the bottom dwellers of the West this year, instead they made the playoffs with a 10-6 record, and a lot of credit has to go to the coach for that. Carroll has rebuilt the team in his old identity and the Hawks look good for the future. CBotY: Andrew Luck : Luck looks better than he ever has in his return from injury, and has led the Colts to a 10-6 record, winning 9 of their last 10 games, and setting them up to be a contender for a long time. Runner Up: JJ Watt : Watt led the AFC with 16 sacks, and looked almost as dominant as before after being injured for most of the last two years.

    It's better for trust from our allies. You can't pull out of a campaign with little warning to those fighting with you, it taints your credibility for future conflicts. To be 100% clear here, we have no business in Syria. I don't think either side is very good, though I do think one side is definitely better than the other. I just dislike jerking out suddenly, I feel like it doesn't portray us very well.

    It's sudden if its not expected and not planned for, no matter how long you've been in there.

    That's a wash to me, because of how it was done. I'm happy we're getting out, but you don't just suddenly ditch your allies.

    He does this all the time unfortunately. Said he was going after guns, then reversed course. Said he was going to sign the gov't bill to prevent a shutdown, then reversed course. Said he was going to cut military spending, then reversed course. I'll believe it when I see it. If it happens, great, then instead of one good thing the orange chimpanzee has done, (pulling out of TPP), we will have two!

    Just to re-iterate that both sides are absolutely not the same. This is from a year ago, but the same ratio still holds today: https://np.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/6pc5qu/democrats_propose_rules_to_break_up_broadband/dkon8t4/

    You think taking the Dems farther left will make the independents want to vote for them? Feel like itll be the opposite.

    No one is going to "bring pelosi to heel." You'd alienate a lot of the older Dems and end up losing the general.

    Obama said that to try to get some swing votes, dude. He was nowhere near a moderate republican. I'm probably voting Democrat no matter who they put up, Trump has to be taken out of office. The idea that the Dems are the same is just false. I agree Hillary is a shill and needs to go, and there are other horrible people in the Democrat party, but its nowhere near the same amount as the GOP, where like 95% of them are actively trying to pass legislation that will harm the average person's wallet or health.

    Memphis Express, if I am not very much mistaken, is in Madden as a team you can make. I also think they sound pretty bad ass, too.

    The Saints just looked bad, mediocre, and bad three weeks in a row. How is not even close, lol? BC with more stupidity.

    While I agree with the general sentiment you two have, a wholescale removal with little to no plan involved is idiotic. (And ofc, Trump declaring victory just because is also hilarious.) The last sane man in the White House agrees. Mattis gave his resignation over this and other things Trump has done recently. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46640114

    Who's The Best Team In The League?

    I have eight contenders- you can't leave off NE with Brady and Belichek, sorry, as much as we might want to, and I think you're discounting the current 2 seed in the AFC in the Houston Texans. If you intentionally have left them off, I'd love to know why Da Bears are there, because Houston is a very similar team and I see little separating them. Saints offense was entirely shut down by Carolina's defense- not to mention Dallas and Tampa for the large part of the game. That's a problem. Panthers defense has been horseshit during this six game losing streak. Also, while not on the same tier as these eight, Seattle, Indianapolis, and Baltimore absolutely have the tools to make a run. I'd rank em as so, of those eight- these are mighty close to me, I'd say top-5 have a slight edge over bottom 3. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

    DE Frank Clark destroys Richard Sherman

    Sherman himself said he'd be pissed too, BC leaves off a lot of context. After destroying the Vikes, the first question they asked him was about Sherman. Sherman said that was disrespectful to him and he wasnt at all surprised by the response.
