re: Weakest (least talented) positional units in the NFL? - Mephistopheles
Expecting at least two DBs for the 49ers in the first 4 rounds tho. One to back up at safety one to challenge for starting corner....

re: Predict Entire NFL standings as of today's roster - Mephistopheles
NFC West vs AFC West this year. Two best divisions facing off. One of the 49ers, Chiefs, Broncos or Seahawks is in for a big fall IMO. Interested to see how big SFs home advantage will be in the new stadium because the other 3 are 3 of the toughest places to go....

re: Your Most Traumatic Sports Play/Moment? - Mephistopheles
I'm a soccer fan and I've seen my team relegated 3 times in my lifetime. Worst moment tho was in about December 2009, we were at the bottom of the table of the second tier league, and the club was so broke we couldn't afford to sack the manager because we couldn't afford to pay him off. ...

re: Shoulda kept Alex Smith - Mephistopheles
What I like about this thread is the way the OP returns to seamlessly pretend playing the best defense in the league at the hardest venue in the league is like playing Indy's D. Great stuff. Some people might even think this is a valid opinion someone could actually hold, and respond in kind......

re: Seattle Super Bowl Window - Mephistopheles
[quote]The window pretty much just opened. And seeing as Seahawk fans have waited about 40 years to have a team this good (ok, they were real good in the mid-80s too), this is a pretty cool thing. The Seahawks are an old school team that plays old school defense. [/quote] They definitely play def...

re: Houston has worst record yet ranked 7th in NFL D in yards - Mephistopheles
As has already been said, yards are not a great indication of competency. If a team is down by 20 in the middle of the third, for example, the the opposition will usually lay off and sacrifice yardage for clock. Seem to remember the Texans being out of a bunch of games. Think Kaepernick only had...

re: How does Vegas do it? - Mephistopheles
The lines are based on certain predictors and Vegas' feel for the market. But you wanna know how they make their money, try this. You and a buddy get a bunch of 5s, 1s and quarters. Toss a coin, each person bets 5, winner gets his 5 back and 4.50 winnings, loser loses his 5, Vegas gets 50c. Repe...

That PFT quote is bull shite. Unless he got drunk in his car, how could he be too drunk to get out of it? He must've gotten into it somehow. Perhaps some other factor explains him being passed out in the car, you know, like colliding at high speed with a large solid object......

[quote]If I were Cleveland, I would strongly consider calling the Redskins and seeing if they would take the Indy pick for Cousins.
