    David Patten passes away

    Not only a clutch 4th down catch on 4th and 4 on the game winning drive in the snow bowl/tuck rule game, but he clearly didn't get as scared or as distracted by the diving Wiggins as I did watching it on TV. RIP Mr Patten.

    Pats Preseason: QB Edition

    I mean the Patriots can opt out of consideration if there’s a new coach. I think they would since no team with a new coach has ever opted in. No team wants to do that to a new coach. Well Jerry Jones may but he’s a bit of a narcissist also if there’s no Belichick and no Brady and the...

    Pats Preseason: QB Edition

    Agreed. The only reason it’s not 100% in that hypothetical would be if Belichick also retires and they get a new HC.

    Pats Preseason: QB Edition

    Patriots have made the playoffs in the last two seasons so they can opt out of consideration. There are other rules related to new coaches that allow a team to opt out or narrow the field of potential teams. I believe such teams can opt in but it’s hard to see BB doing that willingly. Next...

    SOSH has a new author

    One of the frustrating low points was bottom of the 7th. Down 2, top of the order coming up that inning and with Rivera looming It felt like their best of the last chances. Bellhorn doubled to turn the lineup over and then there are 2 on with 1 out and Manny/Papi coming up. So it felt like...

    Celebrating What Is

    This is the truth 1000% Martz and the Rams burning TWO timeouts in the first 10 minutes of the THIRD quarter (on drives resulting in Rams’ punts!) basically set up Belichick with all the leverage on that last drive. Martz historically was worse than early Andy Reid when it came to not...

    NFL Moving to 17 Game Schedule in 2021

    Simple math means more things will be clinched earlier over the years as the sample size leading to more week games where (1) the 4-12 Lions are at the 5-11 bears in week 17 and (2) teams that clinch will be more likely to rest (2020 chiefs, 2009 colts) and lie down in week 17 — due in...

    NFL Moving to 17 Game Schedule in 2021

    From a competitive balance POV it’s ridiculous that a team could play Monday, win, and then have a Saturday playoff game. You can lower the risk of that scenario by planning and scheduling for chalk (as long as you don’t care about which team gets what time slot week 2) but there’s no way to...

    Patrick Chung to retire

    One often overlooked Chung play was against the Falcons down 28-9 in the 4th quarter.* First play of 4th quarter is an Atlanta punt. Belichick, desperate for comeback, steals a play from coaching legend Jeff Fisher and had team /Edelman try to do the fake catch on one sideline (punt return...

    20 best home runs in Red Sox history

    Remember he almost had a key stolen base in extras in game 5 but didn’t get the call on a bang bang. Ortiz with shades of the Vaughn speeddog era! Ortiz being called out may not even be the most frustrating “bang bang” call in that game if you count Cairo barely beating the Tek tag at home...

    Ernie Adams: The Last Dance

    Also while I love the example from the Giants-Rams game and its effect, I’m amazed that it’s such “unorthodox” thinking. It’s like not doing certain parts of a full court press in the final 7 seconds of a hoops game when you’re trailing because you’re worried about giving up a layup An...

    SBLII: Patriots vs. Eagles, the Build-Up

    Are we not counting fake spike plays? But otherwise that’s a fantastic point and I’d love to win a turnover battle for the first time in a really long time... hopefully they’re due indeed.

    Leap and a Flag Will Appear: NFL Bans Leaping to Block FGs and PATs

    Does anyone know if Shea McClellin's leap/block against J Tucker and the Ravens on the 12.5.2016 Monday night game will go down as the last successful one ever? Or were there any in the last 4 weeks of the reg season? I don't remember any in the playoffs other than the one they miscalled in...

    Roger the Dodger Press Conference Game Thread

    I know he was there and sat in the stands during the 2015 Ravens playoff game, but I don't remember Goodell being physically at Foxboro for the Pats-Colts game. We know Vincent, Kensil and the guys stealing K balls were there in Foxboro that night but I thought I had a memory of him RG at the...
