re: John McEnroe is .... - Scoob
[quote]quote: I would rather pay to watch McEnroe play in his prime than Sampras or Agassi. And it’s not even close. JPM in his prime was like watching a technical artist on the court. I grew up on Mac...so I'm not unbiased...but I also grew up on all the 80's and early 90's greats. O...

re: George Lucas - Scoob
[quote]The sad thing is he was such a fan of CGI that he overloaded the prequels ....but it was the unique combination of live action and special effects in the original trilogy that really gave the movies a unique feel. Too much CGI makes everything cartoony. [/quote] The unprecedented and painsta...

re: Mel Kiper mocks SMU WR Courtland Sutton to the Saints - Scoob
Any DT's in the draft slotted around where we pick? People talk about adding Key or another DE/edge rusher to aide in the pass rush, but I'd think adding another big beast next to Rankins would do just fine. Teams would be so focused on the inside of the pocket that Cam Jordan would face less blocki...

re: Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi Discussion Thread ***SPOILERS*** - Scoob
So, let's analyze this, and see what they may intend to do: In the OT, the first movie was lots of spectacular fun and adventure. Lots of daring, good guys prevail. Old mentor for the hero dies at the hand of the villain (who really isn't the villain, but the key redemption later on). Sequel tri...

re: Mock Nfl draft and Kiper and mashay - Scoob
I think we might be surprised by Guice's 40 times, and not in a good way. This past season he never broke a big gain or pulled away from anyone. Yeah, I know- injury. But still, if you look at his past runs, he's been fast enough, but shiftier rather than straight line speed. I'm thinking 4.6-4.7 at...

[quote]Dalvin Cook was deemed a 1st round talent, but his arrests and fumbling problems in college cost him some money. Guice has had a 1st round grade without any off field issues. [/quote]There were some that placed Cook ahead of Fournette as far as top back coming out. Nobody is putting Guice ahe...

re: Mock Nfl draft and Kiper and mashay - Scoob
[quote]That narrative has long since passed. If Guice runs a sub 4.5, he’s going to be the 2nd RB taken in the 1st round of the draft. [/quote]It all depends on the value people put on him, and what the need is. Last season, there were only 2 backs taken in the 1st rd: Fournette, a once-every-fe...

re: Mock Nfl draft and Kiper and mashay - Scoob
It's possible, for sure. Guice is a running back, they don't command 1st rd deals anymore. Combine that with the fact that he split time with Fournette 1 yr, and played injured the next, and you could have questions on his durability. Don't think he's going to be expected to carry the load by himsel...

re: Movies you will never watch again - Scoob
Interstellar comes to mind, as does Gravity. These were pretty compelling watches, but afterwards I just have no desire to see them again. There are some really bad movies I might rewatch, trying to find what I may have missed... these would be big budget films that flopped. Indiana Jones 4 is o...

re: Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi Discussion Thread ***SPOILERS*** - Scoob
It's been awhile since I saw this movie, and I figured I would give my perspective on it now, after it has all settled in. Basically, Disney has turned Star Wars into the space version of Pirates of the Caribbean. It's a fantasy setting to allow for bland adventures now, with a mystical (the For...

re: Would you want the Saints to draft Arden Key in the first round? - Scoob
[quote]Would you want the Saints to draft Arden Key in the first round?[/quote]No; I hope the draft goes like last year's, and the highest rated O Lineman drops down again. Would take THAT in a heartbeat. Other than that, I would say corner or safety. Corner, because despite Crawley's effort, it...

re: I still can't rap my mind around the idea that Williams could not adjust - Scoob
I stand by the assertion that he saw he was going to be early and peeled off. People talk about him coming in and blindly trying to blow the WR up and missing... Williams doesn't have that rep. He doesn't, and never has, played for the big hit. He's a ball hawk who (usually) wraps up on tackles,...

re: This wasn't really even on Williams - Scoob
[quote]Nah that was on Williams [/quote]He missed the tackle. He wasn't the primary cover on the guy. If Williams makes the tackle but Diggs gets out of bounds, Minny wins. And there wasn't another Saint in position to even go for the ball. Or shadowing the WR. That was bad. ...

re: Hold Your Head High, Marcus! - Scoob
[quote]How bout don't leave a rookie back there alone. [/quote]There's some truth to this, honestly. Like, how did Williams end up being the only Saints defender sitting right about where Minnesota needed to reach? Why was there a guy 5-6 yds behind Diggs, their top target, on this play? "He ...

This wasn't really even on Williams - Scoob
Williams was playing back as safety. He responded to the play and came up; that's why there was nobody behind him. That was about a 20-25 yd play, to right about where Minnesota needed to get. Diggs is one of Minnesota's top targets. Yet when you look at the play, Diggs looks like he's 6+ yds beh...

re: Last play of the game , formation was bs - Scoob
You can't play deep prevent with a 1 point lead and 10 seconds (time for 2 plays). As has already been noted, Diggs caught the ball with 4 seconds left, and would go out of bounds if he didn't have a path to the endzone. Minny would have a game-winning FG attempt. Lost in all this- Williams was...

re: Vikings should've never got the ball back... they were in the neutral zone on 3rd & 1 - Scoob
[quote]Saints were lined up in the neutral zone earlier on another play while on defense that was not called. So, that evened out. [/quote]I guess this is the total opposite philosophy of the FG call in Atlanta... points off the board for us doing something everyone does, because of letter of th...
