  1. Good lord, that's a lot. lol I love his talent (not really a fan of his attitude, though), but I don't wanna be the one who gives up that much for him. I find it ironic that both Tunsil and Ramsey are good enough to get their teams this kind of return considering Ozzie passed on both of them. Do you think Ozzie thinks Ramsey is worth that 3rd rounder now? lol Just remember, that 3rd rounder he refused to give up ended up being Kaufusi ... lol
  2. These are the main reasons why I don't understand where all of the excitement around his team is coming from. Last year, w/ Lamar as the starter, the only team we beat that had a winning record was the Chargers. The same team that easily bumped us from the playoffs. (I agree w/ you about the garbage time stats) This year, we're 2-0, but we only beat Miami and Arizona. A Dolphins team that had 7 UDFA's make their team, 27 players that were not on their roster 2 years ago and 40 players that are in their 4th year or less. 40 ... of a 53-man roster. They could very likely go 0-16. In other words, we beat a community college team and a "kinda ok" Cardinals team starting a rookie QB. While I freely admit, Lamar has definitely looked better than I was expecting to start the season, I think it's WAY too early to get hyped about this team/offense. We still have the Chiefs, Seahawks, Patriots, Texans, Rams and two against an improved Browns team not to mention all six of our divisional games. I'd say we'll have a better picture of who this team is by the bye, but the schedule only seems to get harder from there.
  3. I think both of these are true. He's not a major need, but they'll kick the tires anyway. O-Line should have been a priority as soon as last season ended but it looks like we're once again dumpster diving, waiting to see who gets cut before Week 1. 😤
  4. Even that is being kind. I still cannot comprehend why they gave him a new deal.
  5. Looks like it’s official. Spider-Man is officially out of the MCU.
  6. Disney released the list of compatible devices for their Disney+ streaming service. Notably absent, any devices made by Amazon. That means no Disney+ for you if you use Fire TV Sticks, Cubes or Tablets. Also missing from that list is the Nintendo Switch.
  7. Disney has finally pulled the plug on (almost) everything at FOX. They've canceled everything currently in development at the studio with the exception of the Planet of the Apes series, James Cameron's Avatar and FOX Searchlight. Disney announced that FOX posted a $170 Million loss for fiscal Q3, likely a big part of that being Dark Phoenix, which only grossed $65 Million on a budget of $200 Million. It sounds like films that are all but done and scheduled through 2020 will be unaffected; films like Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story, the Amy Adams thriller Woman in the Window and Brad Pitt’s astronaut drama Ad Astra. They made it official and announced that the Marvel properties from FOX were being handed over to Kevin Fiege and Marvel Studios. They also announced remakes for multiple FOX properties: Home Alone, Night at the Museum, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Cheaper by the Dozen - all four are headed to their new streaming service, Disney+.
  8. Disney as finally announced their pricing for Disney+. They announced earlier this year that the stand-alone service will be $6.99/month and they will now be offering a $12.99 package deal that includes Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu (the $5.99 version that includes commercials). Honestly, I would rather see a package that included Disney+ and the ad-free version of Hulu. As is, I'd rather pay extra for the two services separately since I have zero interest in ESPN or for paying for a service that forces ad's on me. Even then, like many people, I have to ask whether I really need this considering I already have Netflix and Amazon Prime. Unless they come up w/ a better Disney+/Hulu package, I don't see myself subscribing.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/jeffzrebiec/status/1158350863112515584?s=19 I was never a big fan of his but this seems kind of absurd considering how thin the O-Line is. They went w/ a practice squad guy at C last year. Who is your starting C and LG this year?
  10. San Diego Comic-Con is this week and Marvel Studios has announced many of their films w/ release dates, including shows for Disney+. May 1, 2020 - Black Widow Nov. 6, 2020 - Eternals Feb. 12, 2021 - Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings May 7, 2021 - Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Nov. 5, 2021 - Thor: Love and Thunder Feb. 18, 2022 May 6, 2022 July 29, 2022 Shows for Disney+ Fall 2020 - The Falcon & the Winter Soldier Spring 2021 - WandaVision Spring 2021 - Loki Summer 2021 - What If ... ? (animated series w/ Jeffrey Wright as the Watcher. Original actors will return to voice their characters) Fall 2021 - Hawkeye They announced a new Blade movie starring Mahershala Ali, but no release date was announced. With the title, I would assume the Mandarin is the bad guy for the Shang-Chi film. I find it "interesting" that they're introducing Yelena Bolova in Black Widow and Kate Bishop in the Hawkeye series. Both of those characters are the new versions of Black Widow and Hawkeye in the comics. You're likely to see both Scarlett Johannson and Jeremy Renner replaced w/ younger, cheaper actors. I'm not going to lie. Outside of Doctor Strange and the Blade movie, I don't have much interest in seeing any of that. Many of the plot points of this Phase they're introducing - Falcon as Capt. America, Jane Foster as Thor, Kate Bishop as the next Hawkeye, Yelena Bolova as the next Black Widow - all are out of current Marvel Comics. A run of 5-10 years where they have literally been beating you over the head w/ liberal politics. A run so bad, it's literally tanking an entire industry. Honestly, I think I'm kinda done w/ the MCU. Endgame was a perfect bookend to this extended universe and I really don't see anything in their current plans that will keep me invested. If Disney's current plans end up as bad as current-Marvel Comics has been, they may have another Star Wars-like problem on their hands. Loki, Falcon/Bucky and the What If ...? series all sound good, but not good enough to make me invest in another streaming service. I'm a little confused on why Falcon and Winter Soldier don't warrant their own film. I would definitely see that. Notably absent from that list ... Capt. Marvel 2. Once again, they said repeatedly that she was supposed to be the focus of Phase 4 ... but she wasn't mentioned once during this panel.
  11. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel
