    Would really be fun if a lot of entries are alive for game 6…

  2. willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:27 am

    The guy Giants got for Coonrod was someone Phils drafted in 4th round but who didn’t pitch 2020. Rated 30th best prospect in their system, fwiw. there is MLBTR column on the deal but most of comments were political and non baseball related.
    One twitter response to original thread posted yesterday re: Coonrod to Phils, was “He had 10 ERA he’ll fit right in.”

    • xoot said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:37 am

      Coondog’s war last year was -0.7. How far can he fall before he disappears?

      • willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:52 am

        Phils pen apparently was historically awful last year, so I guess they figured he has some potential and can’t be much worse than who they were going with. Obviously the draftee they gave up wouldn’t be of much help either for a few years…would be cool if this were another under radar Z steal for Giants.

      • xoot said, on January 10, 2021 at 9:13 am

        The kid’s 6’8″. Giants staff will look like a basketball team pretty soon.

  3. xoot said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:32 am

    The math gets more complicated this morning. No more straight addition/multiplication. Now it’s more like this:

    • Winder said, on January 10, 2021 at 9:06 am

      Just looking at these equations makes me laugh and realize just how fast things evaporate from the brain when they are not being used regularly.

    • xoot said, on January 10, 2021 at 9:14 am

      Only formula I always recall is measure twice cut once.

  4. Carstie Clausen said, on January 10, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Did you make the cut?

    • xoot said, on January 10, 2021 at 9:44 am

      No I sat this one out. But it’s interesting.

      • Winder said, on January 10, 2021 at 10:12 am

        Not quite sure you can do that with ‘pie’ and get an answer, at least not an infinite answer.

      • Winder said, on January 10, 2021 at 10:18 am

        But an infinite answer

  5. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 10:24 am

    Here goes Titans again who have Ravens number..
    7-0 TD to AJ Brown..

    • willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 10:28 am

      Jackson with errant deep throw that is picked off giving ball back to Titans offense that just drove down field for TD.

  6. willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Interesting early game this morning was most evenly divided among picks. Most everyone has Saints, Browns-Pitt closely divided too. Few had Rams yesterday, which was great outcome. If they can beat Seattle with wolford and Goff, gives me hope SF can beat their asses next year with G/competent draft pick QB.
    would of course be nice if they could hammer Wilson like Rams did!

    • willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 10:51 am

      8 for Pitt vs. 4 for Browns. Only 1 person has Bears. only 2 had Rams yesterday.

  7. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 11:05 am

    Man, he’s fast…

    • willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 11:07 am

      yeah helluva run. 0-60 acceleration in…

  8. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Hell of a run for the TD by Action Jackson!
    He’s faster then a speeding bullet, more powerful then a locomotive.

  9. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 11:16 am

    The “coffin corner” punt seems to be a lost art.
    I can’t even remember the last time I heard that expression…

    • djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 11:28 am

      Mike Eischeid was one of the best I can remember…

  10. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    Always liked that phrase Coffin Corner Loo, much better then pinning them deep..
    You don’t hear Flanker,Wingback are Wishbone either anymore.

    • Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 12:10 pm

      i like the phrase “he muffed the punt”.

  11. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    Ray Guy, baby. he was the best at the coffin corner.

    • djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 12:25 pm

      I mostly remember the booming leg – but I’m sure you’re right.
      I’ll spare you the Jerrel Wilson rant…

  12. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    McVay just has Carroll’s number. 6-2 now. Much like shanny has McVay’s

    • alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 12:34 pm

      Say Chuck would u have stilled picked the Rams if u knew they were starting a QB nobody had heard of?

  13. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    That was just a chicken shit penalty, these refs have been horrible throughout the playoffs..

  14. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    Get that slide rule out, Mac!

  15. Macdog said, on January 10, 2021 at 12:52 pm

    First low-scoring game. Through four, point total 188, on pace for 282.

  16. Bozo said, on January 10, 2021 at 1:43 pm

    Looking forward to the next game.
    Wife brought home a box of oysters (100 count) that a neighbor gave us. 20 of em I’m doing on the charcoal grill, Drago style and another 20 she’s baking clam casino style.

    Speaking of oysters, y’all know why Oyster crackers were named Oyster crackers, right?

    Because when they were put into hot soup they screamed, “Oh Stir!”.
    Geaux Saints,

    • alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 2:19 pm

      Yum Yum 😋 Bozo Drago NewOrleans style Oysters 🦪 I’m all in!!
      Go Nawlins!!

  17. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 2:14 pm

    For the WR Wims that was a “Wanna get Away Moment “
    You don’t get an easier TD catch then that!

  18. willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 2:31 pm

    Points aside, after 4 games Unc is batting 1.000 at 4-0.

  19. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 2:40 pm

    Yeah only Mudman took Rams besides Unca but then had Tennessee who lost which keeps Unca in the drivers seat along side OJ..

  20. willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 2:44 pm

    Race 5 at SA Rispoli wins again on turf, now second in jockey standings to Juan Hernandez and just ahead of Joel Rosario and Flavien Pratt, each of whom have ridden winner so far today plus Abel Cedillo.

  21. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 2:46 pm

    I think if Brees can’t get it done in his swan song season the Saints will have a hard time ever getting it done with trick&pony Taysom Hill.He’s just not an NFL quarterback going forward with..

  22. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 2:59 pm

    Trubisky truly sucks.
    On 3rd down he had all the time in the world and just threw a short pass to a guy who was totally covered.
    That was probably the play call, but he was too stupid to see it was going nowhere and he had time to look elsewhere…

    • willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 3:15 pm

      Didn’t see that play, but this does happen a lot especially with those quick sideline throws, like the one that blew up on Wilson yesterday. The QB might fake throw to opposite side of field then make the designed throw the other way without even looking over there to see if D is gonna blow the play up for loss or worse.

  23. Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 3:19 pm

    Nice and easy low scoring gm. This is setting up for battle royale between me, san dawg and maybe chi. But really diggity will be in the driver’s seat, he gets every under his number. Still, there’s no one out of it going to final gm

  24. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 3:20 pm

    And to think Loo the Bears were stupid enough to draft him then Mahomes 😂
    Otherwise maybe he ends up a Chief and you would of been on suicide watch the last few years..🤮

    • Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 3:25 pm

      Ugh fuck that draft. Niners passed on mahomes, mcCaffrey AND watson. Awful awful. and believe me I hated the Thomas Peck and I’m a huge Stanford fan they completely overvalued what he did in that bowl game and I said some at the time

      • Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 3:25 pm

        Pick not Peck, using voice to text and driving sorry

  25. Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 3:22 pm

    Oh my

    • xoot said, on January 10, 2021 at 3:34 pm

      McCovey’s birthday, too.

    • djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 3:54 pm

      I believe today’s announcers call that “high pointing” the ball.
      I guess incredible, leaping catch isn’t good enough anymore…

    • willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:06 pm

      Forever posterized #24 Everson Walls from Grambling.

  26. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:02 pm

    Unless something really awful has happened in his personal life, Kyrie Irving is one big time asshole…

    • Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:14 pm

      Agreed. He’s also probably just the weirdest fucking guy out there

      • djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:18 pm

        Yet, when he calmly talks basketball he’s very engaging…

  27. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:21 pm

    Another TD would or two would raise a lot of pool hopes…

  28. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:28 pm

    The fucking Saints are killing my chances. I’m gonna hit all the games tho. That’ll get me a block of styrofoam with nothing in it.

  29. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:31 pm

    If not for the 37 false starts, the Saints would have 35 points. Fucking clowns.

  30. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:32 pm

    Speaking of predictions, a buddy of mine texted me before the Warriors game that Steph would score a quiet 35 and the Dubs would beat the Clips 155-105.

    Steph scored 38 and the Dubs won 115-105.

    Crazy.

  31. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:41 pm

    Wow…

  32. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:42 pm

    Yer killin’ me, Smalls.

  33. Macdog said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    For those of us with high totals, unfuckingreal.

  34. willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:49 pm

    Trubitsky is trying to get another score…as he completes a 3 yd pass with 20 seconds left, lol

    • willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:50 pm

      or rather, Bears first TD.

      • willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:50 pm

        and there it is…helluva catch too.

  35. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:54 pm

    How can any of you predict a high scoring game when the Bears play? They suck with no offense, it’s been that way for ever in that organization even before adding a worthless Trubisky..

    • Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:55 pm

      Lol you didn’t even play, pipe down. Why didn’t you play?

  36. Macdog said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:57 pm

    One game left, total points at 218. I’ll be rooting for no punts in Browns-Steelers.

    • Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 4:58 pm

      So pretty much everyone under 300 still in this

  37. Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:01 pm

    Just score exactly 53 points tonight and end this shit without the runoff. That shouldn’t be too much to ask

  38. willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:02 pm

    That would be a textbook bad beat should those 6 points scored there at end wind up costing someone the pot.

    I’m gonna watch Warriors hosting Raptors, who drafted SD St. star Malachi Flynn. He got 12 off bench for them the other night when they scored 140 blasting the Kings.

    They also have Chris Boucher…I loved this guy at Oregon, 6-10 who could hit corner 3s, block shots and drive the hoop and dunk. Warriors drafted him sent him to G League in Santa Cruz and there were some undisclosed personal conduct issues and they let him go.
    He had 23 and 10 in that Sac game and seems to have found home with Raptors. another hmmnn for Warriors and their draft picks/developments. They kept Jordan Bell and dumped this guy?

  39. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    Hell of a start in Pittsburgh when the center air mails Big Ben as the football is recovered in by Cleveland in the endzone 14 seconds into the game!!

    • sandog said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:27 pm

      Total Bullshit! I don’t need any cheap touchdowns!

  40. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    232…

  41. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    Here we go. Need a barnburner here. But not too barburnerie.

  42. willedav said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    don’t have a cent on this, but this has been tremendous fun to watch from outside. And about to get interesting if first 5 minutes are any indication of things to come.

  43. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    If this is the Browns’ Super Bowl it could be great news for KC…

  44. sandog said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    Holy Jack Ham Batman! Play some fucking defense Steelers!

  45. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:42 pm

    Kareem Hunt perfected that move by watching his famous hotel video…

    • sandog said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:45 pm

      I don’t get that whole deal where the Chiefs HAD to release him, but it was fine for the Browns to pick him up and give him another chance.

      • djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:59 pm

        I’m 100% sure the only reason they kept Tyreek was because they felt they did enough by sacrificing Hunt…

  46. sandog said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:42 pm

    246?

  47. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    Browns making up for the 2 other low scoring games in 1 quarter.
    And now another pick ! 28 point 1st quarter? Really Smalls

  48. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    • djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:24 pm

      246 (218 + 28)

  51. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    Stupid to rush that 3rd down play before the 2 minute warning…

  52. Winder said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    I hate watching a prevent defense. If Cleveland continues they will lose this one.

  53. James said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    Doesn’t it feel like spring training should already be underway?

    • djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:44 pm

      It almost is.
      There was Valentine’s Day shit in the stores on January 2nd.
      The holiday season feels like it never happened…

      • James said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:54 pm

        Yeah, the holidays are deader than the savior. But it feels like last baseball season ended in the BCs, at least to me.

        Not indoors anyway, Kat…

    260 points and counting..

      Ur kidding me. Another TD before half?

    Run it back motherfucker!!

    Time to start the REBUILD in Pittsburgh!!

    263 now?

  61. alleykat69 said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:58 pm

    Well Unca the 49ers overcame a 28 point deficit at halftime to the Saints at Candlestick in 1980 to win in overtime 38-35 só anything is possible. Still the greatest comeback ever I believe..

    • unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:00 pm

      I was there. $5.00 and we moved to the upper box seats on the 50 near the suites. Joe’s coming out party. I watched the entire game a couple months ago. It’s on youtube.

  62. Macdog said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    Excellent first half!

  63. sandog said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    Scoreless second half anyone??? Hey, it COULD happen.

    I seem to remember Larry Seiple was damn good at those Coffin Corner kicks as well.

  64. Winder said, on January 10, 2021 at 7:00 pm

    I think it would be fun to see a Buffalo/Cleveland championship game. Pretty sure that isn’t happening though.

  65. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 7:41 pm

  66. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    Moron Tomlin should’ve gone for 2…

    • Macdog said, on January 10, 2021 at 7:49 pm

      More like he should’ve kicked the point after the previous TD.

      • djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 7:51 pm

        Well he compounded his stupidity…

  67. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    I preferred the 714s, DJ.

    Now we’re talkin’ baby!

  68. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    281??

    • Macdog said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:02 pm

      I think 283.

  71. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    Can’t keep up with this scoring. Tomlin is chasing points with all the stupid 2s.

    • Macdog said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:11 pm

      It’s unreal how often these coaches misuse the 2-pointer.

  72. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Dubs win!!

  73. unca_chuck said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Fucking Brees alligator arms TD miss is gonna haunt me.

    • Macdog said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:14 pm

      The dropped TD by the Bears WR in the first half didn’t help either.

  74. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Colts could had a bunch more, too.
    So it goes.
    Rachel looking strong!

  75. djloo27 said, on January 10, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    Mac has tiebreaker over Rachel at 296, right?
    292 at the moment?
