Ben was as teary-eyed as a drunk woman in a bar's bathroom stall.
Ironic thing to say about an ESPN-only game.Yo could not pay me to watch tonight’s game.
Might have been Baker's last game of the season, he's saying he needs shoulder surgery.No, Ben's last game is next week. Tonight is his last HOME game.
I have massive concerns. He’s height and speed deficient, and, Dan, if you and I were running a team, he’s maybe — maybe — the sixth-best quarterback in the AFC when you think about Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert, Derek Carr. This is the golden age of quarterbacks in the AFC. Arguably, he’s the third-best quarterback in the AFC North behind Lamar and Joe Burrow. So, I’m paying him, maybe, in that mid-tier market, but we can’t win a championship with Baker Mayfield. Do we want to go to war every day with the sixth- or seventh-best quarterback in our conference?
Ref: Former NFL GM Says There's No Way He'd Give Baker Mayfield a Massive Extension: 'Do We Want to Go to War Every Day With the 6th- or 7th-Best Quarterback in Our Conference?'Tannenbaum agreed with Patrick’s assessment and said that if he were the Browns GM, he’d like to be in the $28-$30 million per year range like Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins. He also said he’d give Mayfield and his agents a choice: either sign at that mid-tier number and play for titles with a stacked roster or go play for a bad team at that top-tier number and hope you get lucky with a great defense.
I had one of your creations as PC wallpaper back around the beginning of the Brady era. Tadpole Prophecies was a conversation starter. “What does that mean?” People would ask. “I’m not really sure,” was the conversation ender.I actually did use Wax Tadpole as a handle many online lifetimes ago
I'd love to have been there - blank looks can be as much fun as laughs, if not more.I had one of your creations as PC wallpaper back around the beginning of the Brady era.

That was 20 years ago… my children were teenagers…I had this as wallpaper on my Windows 2000 computer
Ah, nostalgia Hopefully seeing this triggered some good feelings!
I miss working with the Bryce 3D program. I could render some nice stuff with minimal effort.
Yep. I do remember listening to sports radio in the lead up to the SB and getting that "Pats lucky to be there" vibe, which ended up being a nice personal psychological setup for the surprise. It would be nice to relive that experiencemarginally apropos since we were discussing the Pittsburgh game last night.
I had forgotten the context of the wallpaper. If that 2001 team could win it all, why not this year? Everyone is beatable this season.
Well facing watt isn’t the best idea for a rookie but first rd pick Wills struggled sometimes against I believe third or fourth rd pick Alex highsmith as well who I liked a lot coming out of collegeTheir rookie RT almost did… and Stefanski Never game him help!
ESPN gave him the full “This Is Your Life” treatment, complete with custom stat animations, fawning commentary, clips of Roethlisberger from days when his head wasn’t quite as fat and endless graphics of his current fat, annoying head in between every play. You might believe, given the presentation, that this night was an appropriate goodbye for one of the NFL’s greatest players.
You would be wrong, because Ben Roethlisberger sucks. God, he sucks. Just THINKING about him sucks. I wish he’d never been born. But born he was. Therefore we must, as a society, grapple with this man’s enduring legacy of being a tactless, selfish, belligerent dickhead.
