    Pats Injuries - 2022 Edition

    I believe I had a similar injury when I was a teenager playing soccer around 40 years ago. Somebody slid into my thigh with their cleats (they were metal back in the day). It burst a blood vessel and my thigh blew up like a balloon with blood inside. It was the most painful injury I've ever had...

    Brady is back….back again

    Or perhaps a bit of both. I find it hard to believe/understand that he can throw away a supposedly happy marriage/family life for one 'extra' season of football, when he is set for life financially and is already the GOAT. Is it possible that Brady is an addict, that is addicted to his job, and...

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk. 3 vs Ravens

    I think you are spot on with this analysis. If he is going to go to Bourne, he needs to be staring down Parker. Either that or continue to stare down Bourne and then go to Parker, if his defender starts to peel off. If Parker's defender didn't peel off, I think there is a reasonable chance that...

    2022 49ers -- Lance's Lot

    I think Buffalo are a good enough team currently that they don't need Allen to run in every game. Save it for the playoffs, or a regular season game with some importance (need a win to secure a bye etc.). They can maximize their chances of winning a SB, while at the same time minimizing the...

    Best Red Sox defensive CF

    It was a bit tongue in cheek. The Coco catch, as I said, is the best I've ever seen. I was not denigrating Coco, but merely pointing out that JBJ had an uncanny ability to get a jump on the ball and make, what would have been difficult catches for other players, look routine and easy. Going back...

    Best Red Sox defensive CF

    I voted JBJ. The best play I've seen was Coco's catch as noted earlier in the thread. However, if JBJ was the CF for that play, he would have been able to get under the ball and vote in this poll, while waiting for it to drop.

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk. 1 @ Miami

    I might be wrong, but I thought Dugger got injured in the previous play and was out.

    NFL: News and transactions

    Totally agree that the the 49ers could be one of those teams that need him. I think they’ve bought themselves insurance, while at the same time factoring in the possibility that they can get a decent return on that insurance if Lance is the real deal and doesn’t get hurt. Others have wondered...

    NFL: News and transactions

    There’s also a chance that another contending team will come knocking on the door, with draft picks in hand, when their starting QB gets knocked out for the season. If the Pats are say 9-2, with a kick ass defense and an average offense, and Mac goes down for the season, what would the Pats give...

    We Wish You Well Jackie Bradley Jr. (DFA 8.4.22)

    Sad to see JBJ go. While good offense is fun to watch, exceptional defense is so much better. Any MLB player can hit a home run, or a 9th inning Grand Slam. Most can steal bases or do a hard dive into home plate to beat a throw. However, there are, or have been, very few players that can do what...

    Chris Sale aiming to return

    I’d love to see 37,000 fans at Fenway act as if they are destroying the stadium if Sale walks in a run. Would sure beat the godawful “wave”.

    All Pats-SB Champ Starting Lineup

    I've nothing to add here apart from the pain in not seeing Randy Moss on that list. A wound has been reopened.

    Watson to Cleveland

    This was the kind of possible scenario I had in mind when I first posed the question. Let's assume it's true (big assumption), then the Browns have given up 3 first round picks and a few other picks for nothing. Not only that, they have pissed off their current QB to an extent that he may decide...

    Watson to Cleveland

    Maybe someone with better knowledge of NFL contracts or contracts in general can answer this. Say the the Browns included some language in the contract that would make the contract Null and Void in the event of X happening (more assault accusations etc.). In the event that they are able to get...
