I say no.
He's overrated IMO (as the responses to this post will probably illustrate). That's not to say he's not good - he is. But the people - and there are many - who say he's the best QB in the league are delusional. I'll go on record saying he has won his one and only Super Bowl.
| Food and Drink Board|| Trying Reverse Sear Method - Need Advice - Patrick_Bateman on 9/27/14 at 12:18 pm|
Attempting the reverse sear method on a couple of prime 14-ounce boneless ribeyes tonight. Never used this method before. The steaks are ~1.25 in thick - I'm going for medium rare. Below is the method (as I understand it). For those who've used it before, please make any corrections/additions/commen...

To open January 16, 2015. One of my four most anticipated movies of the year (with Gone Girl, Inherent Vice, Interstellar)....
| Movie/TV Board|| Gone Girl, Official Thread - Patrick_Bateman on 9/22/14 at 3:27 pm|
Personally, my most anticipated movie of the year. First reviews are coming in today, and they're looking good. 92% RT, with 6/6 fresh from top critics. Opens the New York Film Festival this weekend, then wide release October 3. Can't wait.
Trailer for those who haven't seen it: https://www.youtu...

Sure, the naysayers will still be around this week, but I bet you can count on one hand the number of people who decided not to tune in today because of the NFL's controversies. As long as the on-feild product remains as good as it is (and it was fantastic today), the NFL will pretty much be above r...
| More Sports Board|| JJ Watt's Day - Patrick_Bateman on 9/7/14 at 7:18 pm|
5 QB hits, 2 TFL, 1 sack, FR, 1 pass defended, 1 PAT blocked
Probably an average day for him. He is on another level. [Obvious post is obvious.]

After having his iCloud hacked, revealing to the world numerous pictures (and HD vids) of varying degrees of embarrassment, including >100 nudes of Kate Upton and various side pieces, as well as dick pics, how will Verlander do on the field? Will the wrath of KU bring him to his knees, or will he be...
| Tiger Rant|| Not to Be Overlooked: 1st Down to End the Game - Patrick_Bateman on 8/31/14 at 11:15 am|
It was refreshing to look up and see a victory formation, rather than the defense on the field to end the game. As nerve-racking as the game was, at least it wasn't that way until the final second. In the past few seasons, that final first down to close out the game has been hard to come by.

Similar to previous trailers, but the mood gets me more pumped than ever for this movie. I really can't wait.
Get ready. This is going to be a good one!...

Normally a loyal and faithful servant of Obama, now even Ms. Dowd has reached her tolerance limit with Obama.
Actually, a pretty funny (and sad) read: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/24/opinion/sunday/maureen-dowd-the-golf-address.html

Why have I never heard of this movie?!
I read somewhere today that it was the best Elmore Leonard adaptation (please do not derail thread), so I rented it on iTunes. Great movie! Go watch it! I loved it.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, starring George Clooney and a smoking hot Jennifer Lopez. G...

From Madison Square Garden. This should be a really, really good fight. Geale will be Golovkin's biggest challenge to date. IMO, GGG looked vulnerable in his last fight (against some unknown fighter), so I expect Geale to push him. No one has made it to the final bell vs. Golovkin in his last 16 fig...

Maybe someone who currently or previously lived in the UK? I get so confused trying to determine which ones are reliable and which ones are garbage. Seems like the vast, vast majority are tabloid-equivalents.
Thanks in advance....
