If for no other reason than the way he moved all the way up to get Wentz, huge risk looking like it will become the smartest move of the 2016 draft. Hiring Douglass is still TBD, but I have to believe he played a part in our FA signings, which look much better than prior years FA moves. Just 2 years after the Chip debacle a horrid roster has turned into a pretty damn good one. On top of that, there is no one on the roster I don't like, they are a team that is easy to get behind. Doesn't mean I am sold on everyone, but with the way Algholor is finally coming on, it seems fair to wait and see if some of the question marks develop.

They have me hoping we are about to start another decade of serious contention...

I agree entirely. If the Eagles win a playoff game Pedey will be in the discussion for coach of the year. However I really think Howie & company are much more deserving.

Howie and, we have to add Jeff in there too. They seem to be getting things right.

Did you seriously just post a clip from 'The Postman?'

Oh freaking c'mon.

Phone Booth sucked, but nowhere near 'Waterworld.' And no mention of 'Alien: Resurrection?'

Ever see Ishtar? I don't think you can dial down on the two worst movies ever, there are so many awful ones out there.

There's an old joke on here that movies are rated on a scale of 1 to 5 Phonebooths.

I'm sure the person responsible will explain why wink.gif

Wait a minute!

Phone booth is a classic.

Just like Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life, future generations will appreciate it more than some of our generation does.

I may have, a long time ago, slightly exaggerated the cinematic excellence of this movie.

So maybe it isn't top five of all-time.

Maybe top 500.

Geez.
