there is plenty of football talk during the season fam.
I tried explaining that to the guy I invited that wasnt from our group. I tried to explain to him that we werent going gaze and discuss in essay form over training camp body signings or how sweet that shirtless 7 on 7 pass was. That the real football talk starts back up when season gets close. He wasnt believing it.

I know he started his own discord recently, but I think he went back to his others. He was mentioning something the official NFL discords have a discord for each team or something. So he probably going to stick around there I guess. Maybe he was overwhelmed by the chaos that was going on that weekend in there idk lol

I completely disagree. Even during the full swing of the season or game day, you will find the current discord chat to be even more insular then typical OT Era forums are. For some of us that's cool. However I've invited people before who were semi-regular posters or new posters and they mentioned the atmosphere on the discord was not their cup of tea. I will not mention what subject matters they complained about, because discord and era don't abide by the same rules, but I can honestly say their complaints/reservations made a lot of sense. I just don't want new discord additions to be blindsided by what they read when they join right now.

I mean that's the general chat though which yeah anything goes and I'm sure people find it weird, but the football channel is very much alive and well during game day, much more than here.

I don't think he is a HOF but he isn't far off. If he had one ring he'd be in for sure. Vinny might have thrown for more than Aikman too but he never had success in the playoffs.

According to the club's co-owner, Jones became enraged when a dancer began taking the money without his permission. He allegedly grabbed her by her hair and slammed her head on the stage. A security guard intervened and scuffled with members of Jones' entourage of half a dozen people. Jones then allegedly threatened the guard's life.[53]During this time, Mitchell and a male associate left the club with a garbage bag filled with $81,020 and two Breitling watches, which police later recovered.[54] After club patrons left following the original confrontation, the club owner claimed a person in Jones' entourage returned with a gun and fired into a crowd, damaging equipment and hitting three people, including a security guard. The guard was shot twice, and one of the people hit—former professional wrestler Tommy Urbanski—was paralyzed from the waist down.

I’m not sure I’d put him in even with a ring. The second half of his career was really nothing better than average, and it’s not like he was ever the “best” QB in the league. His only really great year came in 04, but EVERYBODY had a great year in 04.

If he never got hurt I’m sure the second half of his career would’ve gone different, but I’m not sure 5 and a half great years for a position that regularly maintains success for 12-15 now is enough.

Post 05 Mcnabb was just a totally different QB.

If Joe Namath is a Hall of Famer, every qb is a Hall of Famer
HOF QBs typically lift the fortunes of 1 franchise.

Joe lifted 10

Why is Aikman the barometer QBs use to judge their worth? People really underrating Aikman and it is the cruelest form of recency bias

Because Aikman’s raw stats don’t really stand out and he’s in the Hall mostly on the strength of those 3 titles. I think Aikman was really good but if he hadn’t won the perception of his career would be far different (as it is for most QBs)
