    • Tied votes will be decided at random.
    • Starting D2 you will be able to end the day early with a majority vote, but not before every living player has posted.
    • Please do not post at night or after dying unless you have a power that explicitly says you can.

    Dear Readers,

    It is with great joy that I present to you my humble collection of hagiographies of some of our lesser-known (though certainly not lesser!) saints and martyrs. Together we shall explore the exciting lives of these exalted defenders of the faith and their often woeful yet immer inspiring demise.

    My sincerest thanks go to Professor Doctor Emeritus Chaton, whose depth of knowledge on the subject was invaluable in tracking down and verifying some of the more obscure stories I am proud to include here, and without whose feedback my work could not boast half its academic merit. Of course none of it had been possible without the relentless support of my husband, whose cooking kept me going through the darkest hours of my research. Finally, all my love to my cat Arwen, forever ready to pur in my lap and walk on my keyboard to provide the necessary breaks.

    Without further ado, let's get started!



    Pings


    Good Luck & Have Fun!

    Talking about Saints and Sinners Martyrs ..

    What is everyone's favourite Nicolas Cage movie and why?

    Doesn't need to be the best. Best is a kind of boring answer when talking about such a wonderful actor.

    At least you are purposefully wolfy! Imagine if you couldn't help yourself. That would be rather embarrassing.

    Nic Cage's greatness cannot be confined to a mere movie. I, erudite Cage connoisseur that I am (), prefer this montage of his best freakouts:

    Ladd McConkey brings all the athleticism and route-running traits to be a high-quality receiver, but size and strength could limit his potential.

    Ladd is one of the better route-runners in the 2024 draft class. His quick feet, smooth hips and instant acceleration allow him to run any route effectively. Ladd particularly excelled running digs, posts and comebacks at Georgia thanks to his acceleration, which helped him put defensive backs on their back foot immediately. The detail in many of his routes is advanced for a player his age.

    On top of that, Ladd shows solid hands. He has the concentration ability to find the ball and hang onto it through traffic, which will be of great value for someone who does most of their work to the intermediate range.

    However, Ladd loses plenty of reps for one reason or another due to his lack of size and strength.

    At the line of scrimmage, Ladd has no ability to fight through contact or use his frame to push off DBs. There are too many instances where a DB gets hands on Ladd and the rep is over right away.

    Likewise, Ladd is not a ball-winner in the air. He just does not have the length, strength or explosive leaping ability to go up for the ball in the air. Contested catches will not be in his bag of tricks in the NFL.

    Ladd can be a good slot/Z type in the NFL. He can play both inside and out, he is a highly effective route-runner and his hands are reliable enough. With that said, Ladd's lack of size and strength will likely limit him to being a complementary piece rather than a core part of his future offense.

    GRADE: 7.1 (High-Level Backup/Potential Starter — 3rd Round)

    OVERALL RANK: 65

    POSITION RANK: WR12

    PRO COMPARISON: Diontae Johnson
