Wednesday Night O/T: The Pro Bowl is the latest Covid-19 victim

 104 replies

Welcome to AG’s nightly Open Thread, drop in and join a conversation, or start one yourself.

This hasn’t gotten a lot of discussion because, let’s be real, nobody really cares about the Pro Bowl, but that apathy also means that it was in danger of being cut. And today it was announced that it indeed will not be played.

Although that begs the question of what the “engaging activities” will be. Personally I’ve always felt those non-football game games were the best part, but I feel like they should really expand them. If we’re going to have covid-friendly games, we should do something like bubble soccer.

I just saw Showtime is developing 10 more episodes of Dexter.

That was the worst ending to a TV show I have ever seen, so this better rectify that abomination.

I haven’t watched GoT yet. But judging how some people referenced they did not like how GoT ended, I can tell it was no where near as bad as the ending of Dexter.

I like it well enough. GoT just crammed a lot into the end while much of the middle of the series was slow. I might watch it again at some point.

Depends on the bidding, but his big holdout has become a big problem for him. With that in mind and given our cap, if KC’s showing interest the market rate is low. How low remains to be seen, but his mouth wrote a check his ass couldn’t cover, big time.

So, I was standing outside smoking and thinking deep philosophical thoughts of monumental importance, as is my wont, and something struck me.

Right now what we as a society need most right now is more frivolity and merriment, whimsy and silliness. 😛 ~~~~~~

. . . with Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill leading the offensive core. Bell would no longer have to worry about opposing defenses focusing a disproportionate amount of energy on him and would likely see his yards per carry go up as a result.
He would likely split time with rookie starter Clyde Edwards-Helaire, but the chance to win a Lombardi Trophy may be too great to pass up if the Chiefs are interested.

I still believe that bell is a product of Pittsburghs line and their ability to get away with holds which allows his stupid running style to succeed and the Chiefs do not have Pittsburghs line so I dont want Bell because I dont think hes in anyway an improvement at this point in his career

#Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes stats when kept clean vs under pressure
Kept Clean • 93/132 (70.5% Comp) • 1,052 Yards (7.97 YPA) • 10 TD • 0 INT
Under Pressure • 30/61 (49.2% Comp) • 422 Yards (6.92 YPA) • 3 TD • 1 INT

And who said nothing good came from Covid

The NFL has announced that this year’s Pro Bowl rosters will be named, but no game will be played. Instead, the game will be replaced by “a variety of engaging activities.”

One of my biggest pet peeves with debates is that they rarely answer the questions. I’d like to have the moderator press them to answer the question, not just use that time to talk about whatever they feel like. The VP debate was terrible for this reason.

Let’s turn it into a Japanese game show. If a candidate starts droning on off topic, a bullshit meter starts rising on the screen. If by the end of the debate the bullshit meter is maxed out, the candidate has a bucket of bullshit dropped on their head on camera.
