    Slater should be considered a key member of the ‘14-‘18 group.

    Thank you, Julian Edelman

    Brown amazingly had 3 ints (including off Bledsoe and Jon Kitna) that year and was second on the team overall.

    Thank you, Julian Edelman

    I’d almost forgotten but it’s still insane that he spent a significant amount of time at DB in 2011 and mostly didn’t embarrass himself. He was still mostly a spare parts guy until 2013 when he beat out Amendola and Dobson/Boyce rookie combo to become TB’s go to guy.

    Schilling says he's leaving Boston to be with 'people that are nice'

    New NFL TV Deal

    If Sunday Ticket is moving to ESPN+, that's a huge game changer. IIRC, you could only get the streaming only option for Sunday Ticket on DirectTV if you couldn't get satellite service at home.

    New England Patriots Hall of Fame

    I can see James White getting serious consideration as part of the second group. Great playoff performances (holds the record for most receptions in a playoff game) and steady contributions on in the air and on the ground. Strong argument that he should have been the LI MVP.

    Predicting the Future: How Many SBs Does Mahomes Win?

    I'd say 1 more. The AFC is shaping up to be the much more competitive conference for the next few years, with a good crop of young QBs (Watson, Jackson, Allen, Mayfield, Herbert, Burrow) and a fair amount of effective veterans (Ben, Tannehill, Carr). Combine that with the cap jail that KC is...

    I also wouldn’t discount him getting some consideration for sticking with one of the more inept franchises for basically his whole career and how upset he was that the Chargers abandoned the SD fans.

    Just how good is/was Drew Brees?

    The only knock I have on Brees is that he tended to turn the ball over at a high rate. It's masked a bit by the sheer number of passing attempts knocking down the interception %, but he threw 15 or more interceptions 9 times.
