Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

"Is Baker Mayfield an elite QB?" is the "Is Joe Flacco an elite QB?" of this generation... 12 Epic Facts about David Lynch's Dune. Love the book Dune and I had no issues with David Lynch's film. Some interesting tidbits at the link... Speaking of questionable "elite QB's" - What's next for Ben Rothlisberger? My guess, being the diva I've long thought he is, Big Ben will hem and haw about retirement all off-season, may even show up to training camp out of shape and then call it quits. Guessing all fans of other AFC teams hope Roethisberger comes back for another season... The question also has to be asked - is Ben Roethlisberger a Hall of Famer? My first instinct was to say "Yes" but drilling down on Big Ben's numbers makes you wonder if he's just Matt Ryan with a better defense and supporting cast? Would you consider Matt Ryan a Hall of Famer?...   


  1. I would love to see Lynch's cut of Dune, since the theatrical version seemed to skip over some of the weightiest ideas in the book. I haven't seen it in over 30 years.

  2. It's long (as you'd expect). Never saw the last re-make that was done by Starz or Showtime and the fact that was not mentioned in the article points to it not being that great.

    Kind of excited for the upcoming re-make though.
