Gasly has looked solid all season. I’m happy for him. Also note the second Red Bull car fares about the same regardless of driver. ...

re: How many Pro Bowls would Chad Jones have if he wouldn’t have got injured? - siliconvalleytiger
I didn’t say he started in 08 but he played a lot. He was out of position a lot in the Georgia and Arkansas games. He may have been against Ole Miss also but it was 13 years ago so I can’t remember to that extent. He made a lot of plays, nobody is denying that. Part of it maybe was the 5 star rati...

re: How many Pro Bowls would Chad Jones have if he wouldn’t have got injured? - siliconvalleytiger
He was a better tackler but pass defense is where he struggled. He was torched quite a bit in those 08 and 09 defenses. That’s also the reason he went in the 3rd round unlike the other 3 who were first round picks. No comparison between Jones and Jamaal. I’d take Jamaal 10/10 times. ...

[quote]Zero. Chad Jones was a great athlete but had limited upside as a pure safety. He is generally overrated by LSU fans based on his various big plays (few of which involved coverage) and his contributions to the 2009 baseball team. [/quote] This is my recollection as well. Great athlete and ...

re: Formula 1 2021 Season Thread - siliconvalleytiger
You know it’s easy to blame the likes of bottas and albon who seemingly underperform compared to their team mates but there’s a pecking order and they don’t get the same team attention until they prove to be consistently faster. I’m watching Perez closely to see if he can do better than Albon did. ...

And if he hadn’t spun and damaged his car, he could well have won that race also. He was actually almost half a second a lap slower due to front wing damage. Just like Red Bull had missteps, Mercedes did also. Both gave gifts. ...

re: Formula 1 2021 Season Thread - siliconvalleytiger
Romagna wasn’t a speed issue for Mercedes. Hamilton spun out, somehow recovered and still finished second. So both teams had missteps. I’m not suggesting he’s much faster but LH still has an edge on Verstappen. I’m ready to see a change also btw. Would love for Norris or Perez to step up. ...

Season so far looks like more of the same. Maybe Red Bull have closed the gap a tiny bit but it’s still the Hamilton and Mercedes show. Perez is an improvement over Albon maybe. ...

I guess I see your point on the fries. The burgers though are a different story. Something about the ingredients in-n-out use maybe. And you have to go animal style to truly experience their glory. I haven’t eaten at a sonic in two decades so could just be my memory....
