Yikes, that sucks.

I am 100% happy with Youtube TV, highly unlikely that I use any non-streaming service going forward.

From Sling:

"FOX Regional Sports Networks and YES started blocking their channels on July 26, 2019, but we are actively negotiating with the channel owners to bring them back.

A few of our channel owners wanted to raise their prices and limit your selection, which simply does not fit with our mission. We couldn't accept these demands without sacrifcing our promise to you, so they pulled their channels."

Marty Hurney sure does know how to make 1st round picks... Brian Burns is a **** monster

Of course the season is moot if Cam is injured, our backup QB's are reallly bad

I want Jordan Scarlett to make the Panthers roster so that any time he does something awesome in a game fans can scream out "Scarlett -> Fire". Anyone? Anyone?

The Houston Texans have made our offseason look world class.

Traded away Jadaveon Clowney for Barkevious Mingo and Jacob Martin.
- So they trade away one of the elite defensive players in the NFL. Clowney is a good pass rusher (not great) but he is the best edge run defender in the NFL, and is historically good at that. And in return, despite needing help at OL, they got 2 no name LBs.

Then they trade away 2 First round picks and a second rounder for LT Tunsil. Now Tunsil is a really solid LT and could be all-pro soon, but how are you going to trade away 3 top round picks over the next 2 years for a non QB? I just feel like maybe going after a rental would have been a better idea.

The Dolphins have been really really bad. If they maintain this horrific form until seasons end they will finish the season as the undoubted worst team of all time. The Dolphins defense is allowing some 44 points a game right now and the offense has only scored 1 touchdown by comparison.

The Dolphins O-Line has been miserable, as highlighted by the fact that they have rushed for 135 yards on 51 attempts (good for 2.6 ypa), but have given up 13 sacks for 73 yards lost. If these were figured into rush figures (as they would in a madden simulator) your looking at an offensive line that has yielded some 62 yards for 0.96875 yards a carry.

With all your capology and salary analysis I just always assumed you'd look more like this:

Seriously: Congrats on the baby making. Your wife looks awesome.

All the best - hope it goes really well.

And you know if you have a boy you pretty much have to name him PJ - right?

It's a girl (which we knew, but still)! Appreciate it, all is well save for my sleep schedule.

yeah I regret buying madden 20 something fierce. I hadn't bought madden since madden 13, but decided to take a go on the series again to see if there had been any headway. The games are almost identical and share many of the same shortcomings. It will be the last ea sports game I ever buy.
