    Pearl Jammin' with Grandpa, the Bill Simmons Thread

    Agreed, although it continues to bother me that two guys who know basketball as well as they do fail to understand why Coach Dale insists on his players passing at least four times before shooting the ball: he clearly wants to shorten the game, as his team plays game-long man-to-man defense with...

    SHOWDOWN ON MNF: Pats vs. Bills pregame thread

    I want to hear what he and Peyton have to say about Mac as I think they'd have a special appreciation for what he does well.

    Mets Continuing To Mets

    Yes, but not for the Mets! (Edit--a waste of a pretty good nickname for a group of pitchers.)

    Mets Continuing To Mets

    It worked out as well for them as Generation K did. Do you remember Generation K? It's fine if you don't, there's not much to remember.

    I agree with mauf, but this made me laugh. If the Giants are to trade Daniel Jones to the Steelers for anything, maybe they can get someone from their organization to be their next GM.

    The Giants have won a championship more recently than any of those teams, by several decades when it comes to the Rangers, Mets, and Jets.

    Jules is good on the NFL show on Paramount+, but this game has given him nothing to work with.

    "Ugh" is a good description of this game.

    That made me laugh, because it's true.

    Peyton's Saints line was good.

    That is true. But he's been the exception.

    Dear Peyton and Eli--nothing grinds your coverage to a halt more than a non-NFL player/coach guest.

    He's a Not Ready for Prime Time Player, as befits the whole NY throwback theme of the night.

    Week 11 NFL Game Thread

    Parcells and Belichick are classic examples of the difference between "money guys" and "statue guys". Parcells is a money guy. If he has success, he's off to next the big payday as soon as he's free to cash in. Belichick is a statue guy. If Cleveland had given him a couple of more years, he...

    I'm grateful for Parcells saving the Pats in NE, because there was a real danger of the team going to St. Louis if he didn't resurrect the fan interest in NE. But I used to refer to him as "The Whore" when discussing him, because his whole career he's chased money. Which makes his final line...

    Yes, that's also why he left the Giants in 1991 and tried to go to the Bucs--he wanted to run his own show. He actually tried to leave the Giants after they won in 1986/87 for Atlanta, but the Giants wouldn't let him out of his contract.

    That's why he didn't take the Tampa job. Peyton said 2002 but it was 1992. They offered him control of the franchise but his health caused him to pass on the job. Which was a fortunate break for the Pats.
