re: House of Ninjas - Netflix - brmark70816
I wanted to like it. But I'm struggling through the first couple episodes. I love anything to do with ninjas. But the family stuff and money problems seem to detract from what I really want to see. Also I don't mind action that borders on superhuman. But I don't want magical powers on display. I was...

re: Would the Cowboys have benefited from another owner buying the team in 1989? - brmark70816
The Stadium is an engineering marvel that is a cash cow. Everyone wants to copy it. The tour is amazing (and I hate the Cowboys). Winning a SB isn't easy and they have never been awful during his whole tenure. Have they ever drafted top 3-5 since he's been there?...

re: Medieval farmers ate 7000-9000 calories a dsy - brmark70816
Oh the TV show Alone, there is a big focus on calorie burn. When people are building their shelters or hunting/foraging, the contestants are burning 5k+ a day easily. I can see expenditures sky rocket when everything is manual and you have to walk everywhere. Even worse in cold weather. They did...

re: Ingram Mid-Season Highlights - brmark70816
I watched an interview segment with Kenyon Martin where he talked about how he almost beat down his coach because he took him out of the starting lineup. It really does matter to most players. They want to start and they want to put up big numbers. Winning is nice. But not if it means watching from ...

re: No top 20 player - no chance to win a title - brmark70816
I live in Atlanta, so I'm forced to listen to a ton of Hawks stuff. From what I've heard, they aren't shopping Okongwu without getting a premier big man back. They like him a lot here. He's not untouchable (strangely that's Jalen Johnson). But it would take a ton. I don't see them being interest...

[quote]It was a weird crossover year where Duncan wasn't good enough to be considered legit top 10 as he was old but Kawhi also wasn't top 10 as he was younger. Basically, the Spurs weren't supposed to win that year, but they did it any way. But yea, they had 4 future Hall of Famers, so if any team ...

Other than the mental aspects of the position and team leadership (both areas that are questionable for Williams as well), how is Fields not exceptional? He has above average size, build, arm and athletic ability.....

[quote]no. The Bears would be absolutely insane to pass up on Caleb for fricking JJ McCarthy lol[/quote] Based on what? Sheer talent? Williams is special. But so is Fields. It takes more than that to win and be successful as a franchise. They need a leader and a foundation to build upon. Willia...

re: Who trades up for JJ McCarthy? - brmark70816
When I look at McCarthy, I see Alex Smith. Similar size, frame and athletic skill set. Crazy success in college. Almost identical stats. Very smart and well-liked by their teams/coaches. He won't go #1, but he really would be the perfect fit in Chicago. He's from Illinois. A ton of Bears fans ar...
