    Second Best Head Coach in the NFL?

    Yes, I am "begging the question", but if you really want to argue against Belichick being the best head coach in the NFL, by all means have at it. That being said, who is your choice for second-best? Not necessarily who you would want to replace BB (although it could be), but who, given...

    Top 5 (or so) Worst NBA Contracts

    Didn't want to derail one of the other threads, so I thought it would be good to have a thread that focused on bad deals. Don't feel constrained to limit it to 5... 1. John Wall. Some contracts are bad due to the dollars, and some due to the length. Everything about Wall's is bad. 2...

    Each Franchise's All-Time Best Team

    We did this a few years ago, old thread is here http://www.sonsofsamhorn.net/index.php?threads/all-time-greatest-franchise-teams.3799/#post-737646 Thought it might be good to revisit given all the player movement and young talent that has come into the league over the last few years. Some...

    Tom Seaver diagnosed with dementia

    Announced that he will retire from public life. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/26173506/hall-famer-seaver-diagnosed-dementia One of the all time greats, even if he did play for the Mets. I wish his Red Sox tenure had a happier ending.

    Idiot-Proofing a Laptop

    Probably a bit harsh, as I'm talking about my son here, but his track record....is not good. He starts college next week, and I've purchased him one of the recommended laptops. I'm looking for suggestions for: 1. A good antivirus program or programs to block, detect, clean, etc. Laptop came...

    Searching in Gmail

    I have a client that uses Gmail for his business. He has received a subpoena for a number of his business emails, which we have produced. He has now been asked to produce a "privilege log", which is essentially a list of emails between the client and counsel (and only client and counsel). it...

    Belichick 2001 vs. Belichick 2016

    I've always thought that 2001 would go down in history as Bill Belichick's greatest coaching job, whatever else he did. After this season, I'm not sure that 2016 wasn't better. We argued this well into the night (well, into the morning) after the game last night. Split opinion. Some thoughts...

    Second Acts as Head Coaches

    Actually, in Pete Carroll's case, a third act.   BB is, without question, the best head coach in the NFL.  In the words of Mona Lisa Vito, "It's a fact!"   Pete Carroll is at worst a top 3-4 guy (my measurement being that if Carroll got fired tomorrow, every team but 3-4 would fire their head...

    All-Time Greatest Franchise Teams

    Spinning off from Ivanvamp's posts in the other thread, the team he put together would be a pretty good team in an All-Time Franchise Tournament:         Which franchise could roll out the best all time team?  Of the top of my head, despite my Celtics homerism,  I'd say it would be the Lakers:  ...
