  1. Maybe the Eagles should have given their (fairly talented) starting running back more than two carries. This game plan in general by the Eagles felt really off all game. Lots of RPOs not always run correctly, long developing passes that didn't put Hurts in a good position, just generally too much Hurts. I think he can still grow into a really good QB but games like this show his weaknesses and the coaches should be doing more to help him.
  2. I'll go to my grave saying that prevent-style defenses cause more harm than good. Lamar hitting a 4th and 19, Rodgers getting time to find wide open receivers sitting in zone pockets. Defenses that had decent gameplans throwing them out the window to allow 20 to 25 yard gains rarely works out well for the defense. The league has (rightfully, in my opinion) gotten more aggressive in many areas, but too many teams still go into soft zone defenses when the game matters and its maddening.
  3. That Tucker kick was one of the most amazing things I've seen this year, unreal.
  4. Overall I thought the Direct had more good than bad for my gaming habits. I like playing the "classic" games, and while the initial N64 line-up is pretty lackluster, hopefully they add more at a faster pace than they usually do since they are charging extra (doubtful). Sega Genesis was a fun surprise. The Mario Kart rip-up made me laugh but it would have to get great reviews for me to get it, and I've never been a Kirby or Splatoon guy. Bayonetta looked cool though and Triangle Strategy will be a must-buy. That Mario movie casting was something else, I don't have high expectations.
  5. Imagine doing a joke big ass parlay and then losing out on 900K because Goff sucks.
  6. Not to defend the Bengals (or the Bills, who have had line issues as well), the sad fact is that there aren't enough talented OL to spread around. The DL in the NFL seems to have advanced at a faster rate than their counterparts, if you polled fans I would guess 75% of NFL teams have substandard offensive lines (or at least a few weak links). Some are worse than others, for sure. But I don't think its a fixable problem league-wide as if say the Bengals signed three great OL, then some other team would then have a shitty OL instead.
  7. Going with Lawrence and Fields as your two QBs was definitely a bold strategy. Not that I can talk much since I'm not doing any better.
  8. Every time I start thinking Lamar Jackson is a touch over-rated, he does Lamar Jackson things and changes my mind. I'm still concerned about his passing decisions as he made a few throws that had me worried (I was watching the game with my brother, who is a Ravens fan) but he sure is fun to watch.
  9. No Man's Sky in some ways is like Stardew Valley for me. I play it overly obsessively for a few weeks, 6 to 8 hours a day, thoroughly engrossed. Then one day I am just like "well that was fun" and I don't play it again for two years. There is never any slow wind down, I go from insanely into it to over it in a day. Happened again earlier this year, I put a ton of hours into it, had a cool looking base, had progressed some in the "story," then I felt satisfied and haven't played it since. It is a pretty great game though, I'd recommend anyone that tried it initially to try it again.
  10. As someone that is not a fan of Penn State, the referees continually fucking over Penn State throughout the game has me laughing even though I know it sucks when the refs mess up games.
  11. And that "Wrestling Code" game is still in early production as well (that may be the one Angle was doing mocap for), seems like a lot of games are in early development. I support more wrestling games being released but I am equally pessimistic that any will be particularly good. For a modern style game, the collision detection/moves seems to be incredibly difficult to make look right in every situation, and these smaller studios just aren't going to have the time or resources. Plus some fans really want a sim, some want arcade-style, its a tough balance to find. Retromania in a way had the right idea, it has its issues but going for the retro feel made their lives a little easier and they were able to basically meet expectations.
  12. Hope that Phil went to bed.
  13. I have mixed feelings when they release footage like this. On one hand its good to see progress but in the year plus before it releases, who knows what tweaks they will do to it. I am sure it will resemble that but they have so much time to change things. So I don't *love* the movement in that video but with no release date, I'll wait to judge until its finalized footage.
  14. I'd like to apologize for Dak being released in the DVDVR FFL. That's even worse then not remembering to switch out a kicker, putting a QB1 up for grabs for no reason. It will be dealt with internally.
  15. To be fair its been the same time for 13 YEARS. Fuck, we're old.
  16. They should cut him and sign Murray.
  17. @RIPPACan we get one extra strike this year? I mean we are all so bad.
  18. The percentage of people picking the Jags is mindboggling, I'd actually lean Texans if I had to pick one. Tyrod isn't good but its competent while the Jags are still the Jags + a rookie QB.
  19. As good as I am at FFL, I am equally bad at Survival. Can't wait.
  20. I thought that is what they fixed. The kicker part I mean. Brent always autodrafts and I don't... think he pre-ranks. I remember early on his teams were always just terrible after the draft and he'd have to make a ton of adjustments but lately its been more sane. Like last year he didn't get a kicker until Round 8 (still a touch early for many, admittedly). Its possible he started pre-ranking really hard but I just figured Yahoo finally fixed their algorithm.
  21. They already paid, let them forget. Although the auto-drafter seems to be much better than it was back when the league first started. It may even be better than some of our human drafters....
  22. So what if they make it? How does that personally impact you? You don't have to buy it, the base game is still available for the same new-game price as always, you don't have to pay more. Just because something doesn't "spark joy" for you personally doesn't mean it shouldn't exist. I am sure there is something you collect that doesn't spark joy for me, should that thing just stop existing too? Just because something is expensive to you doesn't mean its expensive to everyone, seems like an odd thing to even care about.
  23. I dunno who this new Clemson QB is but UGA is making him look like a jobber.
  24. Its an interesting game in that it doesn't really "help" much, so even though on one hand its simple, its also pretty deep at the same time with a real "learn as you go" feel. I jokingly call it a "fun version of Animal Crossing." All I can say really is to start slow, that picture is year 2, year 1 was basically doing basic crop and mining stuff so I could get money to build the barn and coop. I didn't even fully explore things and I don't care if the town people like me yet (except the girl I am going to wife of course). I wish I had a picture of my farm after the second season as it was drastically smaller. That being said, there are probably 2494 "beginner tip" type guides that wouldn't spoil major details but would nudge new players in the right direction, I'd recommend it as it may quickly connect some dots for anyone interested in playing it and make the early game less frustrating.
  25. Since some jerk in here was talking about Stardew Valley, guess who started a new game of Stardew Valley? Its me. I hadn't played in about three years and new things have been added to it I think. Anyway, I am in the summer of the second year, this is my farm. I don't like to use planners or guides online for farm layout. I occasionally google something like where to find a certain fish so I don't drive myself crazy, but farm layout is just kinda.... free flowing. But its cute, I like it so far. I have a "hay" problem I am working out, otherwise the money is flowing from the melons and corn.
