    2018 Video Game thread

    You guys had a different experience with RDR2 than I did. IMO it is/was both extremely mundane and boring, but also open and limitless (to an extent) at the same time. I played a lot of it the first week it came out, but then got pretty bored with it. It followed the same trajectory for me as most of the GTA games. I still go back to it for 20 minutes here and there. I'll do a mission, maybe two. But I don't have the time or desire to explore 99% of the world they created. That's been my beef with the recent trend of open world games. I used to love Assassins Creed, but the last two games were too big. There's just too much stuff to do and most of it is not different, there's just more of it. Everything becomes too repetitive. Luckily they allow you to play the game as you want (e.g., without doing all the side stuff) so you don't get burned out, but my gaming OCD kicks in and I feel bad for not exploring every inch of the map or not clearing/discovering every area that you can. I almost prefer the simplicity of Nintendo games and/or movie-like games like Uncharted these days.

    I think it was a stars-aligned kind of game but it's nice to see Ayo starting to assert himself. He's played really well the last 4-5 games. Giorgi too when he stays out of foul trouble.

    No chance given the salary savings. Bulls are all about the $$ not wins.

    if you're the Bears back up the Brinks truck and give Fangio HC-type money. Keep this thing rolling.

    I agree with this but there are a ton of coaching mistakes too that make me wonder if he's good enough. Yesterday was a great example - you can't even get a shot off to try and win the game. That's on the coach for not having something set up. They had 6 or 7 shot clock violations against Indiana. They consistently go on extensive offensive droughts. Well coached teams don't do that. You manufacture some points with set plays to end a drought. He just lets them play until someone eventually makes a shot. Young players make mistakes. I get that. But it's a consistent problem. It hasn't gotten better. That's a failure of the coach to get his players in position to succeed.

    You don't turn around a program and win championships in 4 years, but you certainly improve year to year. He hasn't shown any improvement really. Yes, last year is a throwaway but this year has been almost more of a regression than anything. As someone mentioned above, his rotations are terrible, his offense is basically passing the ball around the three point line until someone can jack up a shot and his defense which was pretty good last year (at least at turning the other team over) has gone away. Ever single "close" game they've had this year follows the same script - winning or about even at halftime, go on an extended 6-8 minute drought, lose the lead and go down big, then have a #fakerally in the last few minutes. Where is Griffin? Why was Jones sidelined for 25% of the season? They're not winning a lot of games this year, so play the young guys and see what they can do. Williams, Feliz and Nichols aren't good enough/consistent enough, so give the freshman those minutes. Getting Kofi and being in on his Oak Hill teammate (another top 100 wing) and Terrance Shannon means Underwood gets one more year after this. He probably had it anyway, but that seals it regardless of how this dumpster fire season turns out.

    Millions + you move to a different city and 90% of the people there have no idea who you are or what you did in your previous job. Plus, if you end up making a FG to win a game, all that crap is usually forgotten.

    I agree. I think my one big gripe last night is that Nagy was too conservative to start the game. I think if they come out and play their typical varied offense (like in the 2nd half) they win easy. But for some reason, maybe to play safe with Mitch, they were super conservative. The Eagles using a spy really helped them, as did Mitch's hammy tweak or whatever he had, but if they had gone vertical more to start I think that would have opened up more of the running game.

    The eagles linebackers have some serious speed. I honestly don't know if Cohen would have been very effective.

    Blaming Parkey is the lazy fan response. Everyone deserves a little blame. The last 6 minutes you had the offense blow a chance to ice the game with a long drive (had a quick 3 and out). The defense allowed Foles to march down the field and score a TD. And then Parky kicked the ball too low and/or the line allowed too much pressure so the ball got tipped. Having said that, if there's a better option out there, the Bears need to go another direction. I don't want them to be in this same position next year and have to rely on Parkey under all that pressure.

    Ald Burke's office raided

    My conspiracy theorist side wonders if the FBI/DOJ were going to go after Burger King over the McDonald tapes and then BK said, hey wait a minute, you want a bigger fish? I'm also shocked Burke was dumb enough to be the guy on the phone with this stuff. Why not use one of the many crooks that work for him? Either stupidity or hubris. Probably both. I also thought it was interesting that the wire taps came way before the raids on his office (23 guns btw, wtf?). Makes me wonder if more indictments are coming. That dude is connected to everyone in the city.

    Seems like small potatoes overall, but illegal nonetheless. I'm sure he's done this sort of thing routinely in his position over the last 50 years.
