  1. I have no dog in the Steelers/Seahawks Super Bowl officiating controversy. However tying Jerome Bettis into Hall Of Fame talk from a few pages back, Edgerrin James wouldn't water down the Hall Of Fame anymore than Bettis getting in did, since both basically had the same careers. Two rushing titles and four seasons of over 1,500 yards for James compared to no rushing titles for Bettis (even though he had at least one monster season that would've lead the league most other years) and only one season of over 1,500 yards. James was also a legitimate receiving threat out of the backfield; especially early in his career. 3,364 yards and 11 TD's for James compared to 1,449 yards and 3 TD's for Bettis. Bettis had 1,400 more career rushing yards but played in 44 more games. Bettis had 61 career 100-yard games compared to 57 for James. 94 career TD's for Bettis compared to 91 for James. You could make just as strong a case for either guy being a compiler as a borderline Hall of Famer.
  2. Bill O'Brien, zigging when he should've been zagging and zagging when he should've been zigging.
  3. History is against Mike McCarthy because no head coach has ever led two different teams to Super Bowl wins. I don't see McCarthy being the guy that achieves that milestone.
  4. I also immediately thought of The Town That Dreaded Sundown, but nobody was killed via strangulation. I actually had one of these horror movie stumpers involving a killer in an S & M mask for years before I figured out what it was. It was called Blackout. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088816/ It really stuck with me because I walked in the room and saw the opening scene when I was 6 or 7 and it shows somebody finding a mother and children murdered in their home. Of course, the murders don't occur onscreen and my imagination had built up the scene to be a lot more graphic than it was. It was a made for HBO film. I still haven't went back and watched the entire thing, but pulling it up on YouTube the scene really isn't grisly compared to other stuff. I'm sure it was much more of a mystery from the description of the movie. Here it is on YouTube.
  5. Bondage slave mask? Ski mask? Mr. Wrestling II mask?
  6. Since the ship probably sailed on Bianca Bel Air having a truly meaningful NXT Title win, why not have her breakout moment be winning the Rumble instead? Even though she has much more potential as a heel (in addition to the fact that NXT women 's division stand-outs are fed shit sammiches sooner than later when they are introduced as faces on the main roster) it might mean a little something if she was the one to finally end Bayley's current reign at WrestleMania. I mean not really, though. Any winner of the women's Rumble that challenges the other brand instead of Becky is going to look as small-time and lame as the men's winner choosing to challenge for the NXT Title. Obviously Becky's challenger is going to be Ronda or Shayna. They could always pull some convoluted garbage where a surprise winner like Bianca Bel Air lost their shot to one of those two before WrestleMania, particularly if it's Shayna. Of course, that's also the sort of bullshit that nullifies one's big breakout Royal Rumble win.....being goaded into losing your title shot before WrestleMania. I guess root for Bianca Bel Air and hope they (any winner that isn't Ronda or Shayna since one or both of them has to be set in stone as Becky's WM challenger) have a reason that isn't too stupid for challenging Bayley instead.
  7. Sean Payton should coach the Packers or Vikings at some point so Bears fans can be pissed and insulted that he was such a shitty replacement QB in 1987 while also having the same last name as their greatest player.
  8. This is kind of how I understood "the other guy" criteria. Ricky Morton is the one that got his nose rubbed into the concrete. This is after he got goaded into a confrontation because he was always the one Flair directly addressed by name when dissing the Rock N' Roll Express. Of course, that could just be because even the Four Horsemen weren't low down enough to make fun of Robert's lazy eye. Supposing that every tag team consisted of the standout and "the other guy", wouldn't that make Rick Steiner the other guy? For starters, there's the story that Scott was in line for a World Title run, which he refused because he didn't want his brother, the Dog-faced Gremlin, to be left begging for scraps as a mid-card singles act. Besides not knowing how much truth there is to it in the first place, I believe this was a Watts thing, even though Scott had already faced Flair for the title in a Clash main event before he bolted with the big gold belt in 1991. That doesn't necessarily mean anything though since Eaton also faced Flair for the title in one of those one-off Clash main events. Rick also challenged Luger for the title as a placeholder opponent between Ron Simmons and Sting. Rick was more of a character with the goofy headgear (and not so subtly being portrayed as mentally challenged to varying degrees). You can be the judge on whether or not Scott was better off being the one that barely talked during promos. Even though both of them clotheslined and suplexed their opponents to hell and back, Scott was my favorite as a kid because of the Frankensteiner, whatever that standing flipping slam was called, and having an overall wider variety of suplexes. Even though Rick was more capable than Anvil, their team dynamic wasn't too different than the Hart Foundation. I realize that point is very uneven since both Steiners' whole identity was being high level collegiate wrestlers, but Scott's offense was unique enough (and more varied than Rick's) for him to be the technician and Rick the powerhouse lunatic, not unlike Bret and Neidhart. Scott also had that sweet, sweet mullet. There. Take that, Rick's goofy ass looking wrestling head gear.
  9. The Saints' protests might have gotten on some people's nerves last offseason, but the net result of that non-call was a boring ass Super Bowl where Jared Goff played like the most worthless bag of shit ever. If a guy extending his arms (not getting called as offensive pass interference) leads to a whole offseason of Chris Jericho level conspiracy victimhood, then the Saints will officially be petty assholes.
  10. You just know they would've went ahead and compared that (non-scoring) run by Taysom Hill to Steve Young's TD against the Vikings in 1988. That's a huge difference, especially considering that the Saints ended up pissing away that drive and ultimately the game.
  11. Funny shit. I just looked up Hulk Hogan's match results in '89-'91 to see how many title defenses he might have had against the Powers of Pain after they split up, which was shockingly few. I only saw one defense against the Warlord in 1991. I guess I thought there was a little more variety in monsters of the week or month when doing the house show circuit. It was mainly Earthquake going on the big boot diet though during 1990 and 1991, as far as big behemoths go. But that's not the funny part. Based off of DQ and count-out losses to Mr. Perfect, Hogan probably had an overall losing record as WWF Champion during his second title reign in '89-'90. Okay, okay, I'm sure he still smacked Savage around enough to have a winning record but you get my point. I understand this was also standard operating procedure during Hogan's first reign to build up guys as worthy challengers. It's still a bit unexpected to find Hogan losing four or five consecutive matches via count-out or DQ to Perfect in house show matches before beating him cleanly a few times, and then starting the cycle all over again. They did this same loop or pattern of matches three or four times. I knew it happened, just not that frequently.
  12. Didn't the Road Warriors alternate title shots at Ric Flair on those mid-80s Great American Bash tours? Hawk was the guy that came off the top rope when executing the Doomsday Device, and he was massive and shredded in the same way that Nikita Koloff was. His interviews were certainly more nuts. That being said, I don't think anybody would every think of Animal as the other guy just because the Road Warriors were so distinct as a team. Stan Lane is clearly the other guy because he wasn't in the same league as a worker as Eaton, and he was also a replacement guy that shimmied and did comedically unathletic looking martial arts kicks.
  13. Does the Travel Channel still play the same Monsters & Mysteries reruns from 7-8 years ago? Or am I thinking of Destination America? I remember one episode where there was some kind of evil forest troll called the Chupwucky. Thinking about the shitty actors playing dumbstruck yokels describing their fear of the Chupwucky biting their ankles always puts a grin on my face.
  14. Brady will sign with the Chargers. Philip Rivers will retire, and open up his very own bolo tie emporium.
  15. I'll go with the Texans, Titans, Saints, and Seahawks. Doubting the Pats probably means they'll win, 45-3.
  16. What's Bob Stoops up to these days? It wouldn't be the first time Jerry hired an obsolete mule (of a former Sooners coach) on a whim. As far as rumored candidates go, Lincoln Riley seems like he'd be little more than an overhyped lateral move as a replacement for Kellen Moore. Urban Meyer is used to dealing with sociopaths so maybe he's the right guy to motivate this flakey bunch. I'm not convinced Sean Payton is as interested in the Cowboys job as he's been made out to be. Maybe he really likes coaching the Saints. Besides trading multiple 1st rounders for a head coach is a bad idea. Garrett was a total non-entity as coach. If he ever made a key halftime or in-game adjustment, I sure as hell missed it. He should get the number 8 branded on each of his ass cheeks to symbolize his absolute mediocrity as a head coach. I hear he's an awfully nice guy though. Apparently they've already set up an interview with "The Michelin Man" Mike McCarthy. He's a boring enough candidate with a Super Bowl in his back pocket. I guess there are a lot worse coaches Jerry could hire.
  17. I don't know who you would've cast in the role, but the Brooklyn Brawler should've definitely had a tag team partner called the Hoboken Hobo at some point.
  18. Whether any or all of the Forgotten Sons were involved with that Aces N' Eights poop duke in TNA, they all certainly look like they were. And that's bad enough.
  19. Damn it, having a tough time deciding between those two slipcovers for Spookies. They both look freaking awesome.
