re: The 5 Most Clutch Playoff Quarterbacks of All Time According to FiveThirtyEight - ChiSaint
What is so hilarious? Flacco has won two thirds of his playoff games and sports a pretty ridiculous 8-5 record in road playoff games (Brady is 5-4 in comparison). So Flacco is regularly winning as an underdog which is clutch. The fact he is overpaid and kind of sucks during the regular season has...

re: Is gymnastics proof that golf and tennis players are babies? - ChiSaint
[quote]Is poker a sport?[/quote] Did you seriously just use poker, a card game where you sit on your arse for hours on end, as your basis for disproving that gymnastics is a sport? Would you please elaborate on why golf is a sport and gymnastics, which requires elite level athleticism, is not?...

re: Hillary Is Going to Win and We Can All Blame the Trumpkins - ChiSaint

And the teacher shouldn't go to prison bc clearly teenagers want teacher sex so victimless cr...

re: San Jose is the most Forgettable Major American City, according to data - ChiSaint
I live in San Jose. While a nice place to live and more affordable than the rest of Silicon Valley (though still crazy expensive), there's not much memorable about it. It's really a sprawling bedroom community for the rest of the Bay Area. Before we moved out this way, I thought SJ was a city of lik...

re: Why doesn't DeAndre Jordan try underhand FT's? - ChiSaint
I agree. Was just reading an article about Chinanu Onuaku at Louisville who went from a 46.7% FT shooter to a 59.6% FT shooter by employing the underhand method. While still not great, that is massive improvement. Think about the impact it would have if Jordan could suddenly hit 60% of his FTs....

re: UFC: Dos Anjos injured; McGregor to fight Nate Diaz - ChiSaint
How is Nate not going to pop for weed post-fight? He didn't have a fight scheduled and wasn't in camp so I'm imagining he and Nick were sitting on the couch taking bong rips and watching reruns of Beavis and Butthead at the moment he got the call about the match-up....

re: 133 Players have been named to the Pro Bowl this year, most in NFL history - ChiSaint
[quote]so should they just not do the probowl any more? [/quote] I don't think they should continue to do a full-contact game if that's what you mean. Make it all skills challenges as others have suggested or, if one insists upon playing football, a flag football game. ...

re: Is Brandon Marshall a Hall of Famer? - ChiSaint
As of now, no. The Hall has been extremely reluctant to admit receivers (Chris Carter and Tim Brown each took a decade to get in with more impressive numbers than Marshall). In the 50+ year of the NFL HOF, they've only admitted 19 WRs. I just don't see Marshall making it when the following guy...

[quote]Does a lack of championships (or a very small # of them) stop someone from being an all-time great at their position?[/quote] At least in football, right or wrong, it is counted as a huge plus when determining likelihood of making the Hall of Fame. Look at any of the great dynasty teams (...

re: Current WRs (Over 10,000 Career Yards) and the Hall - ChiSaint
[quote]andre johnson, fitz, calvin[/quote] I just can't get on board with Andre Johnson. His career numbers look way too close to Henry Ellard's while operating in a much more pass friendly era. His inability to find the end zone is a big negative in my book (he's had 5 or fewer TDs in 8 of his...

Current WRs (Over 10,000 Career Yards) and the Hall - ChiSaint
The Calvin Johnson retirement thread got me thinking, which current WRs are HOFs? For purposes of discussion, let's only look at receivers currently over 10,000 yards as it gets too speculative regarding the futures of the younger receivers. The list includes: Andre Johnson: 1053 - 14,100 - ...

re: What's worse: Vehicle with no heat in the winter or no AC during summer? - ChiSaint
