    It's a Texas thing. Also, Sox fans criminally underrate the Roger Clemens era.

    you need some type of defense though or you're going to be exposed. See 52, Super Bowl.

    The Eagles D was also exposed, mind you.

    This team is shaping up a bit like 2011.

    It was actually an Edelman Celtics jersey.
    He had his name on the back

    This D is much better than 2011. You know the one with Julian Edelman at corner.

    BB wishes the Red Sox well in their series "pulling for them."

    Just saw highlight of BB - simply hilarious! Praising TB while showing absolutely zero emotion

    I feel like this didn't get enough acknowledgement.

    Duff Man never dies, just the actors who play him.

    There is basically a mandatory requirement of having at least one ++ pass rusher the likes of which NE never really has access to short of giving up a king’s ransom. Without that forget about it, and most teams don’t have it. I know people are hyperfocused on the Pats’ D at all times, and they are not the most talented group overall, but yeah, offenses are just too good.

    Hell, the Patriots contributed to this state of affairs by being so far ahead of the curve for so many years and forcing everyone else to try to catch up. All those times they smoked Houston and basically made Watt a total non-factor? And now you’re seeing up and coming guys like McVay who have been groomed in this environment stepping in with an understanding of how to really manipulate a defense and eliminate whatever mismatches there might have been.

    Using a hilariously simple model* that is unadjusted for a shit ton of important other factors, teams that scored 21 points win ~48% of the time in 2017 NFL. Teams that scored 13.6 points won 20%.

    The 50% break even point for yards is 333, and for 20% its 198.

    *fit.glm <- glm(result~score, family=binomial())
