    Roger and Me: Heyman's HoF votes.

    He doesn’t even have to believe he was juicing his whole career. He just doesn’t know - he can’t find a clear delineation between pre-steroid Clemens and steroid Clemens. So he can’t assess his “real” achievements and so can’t give him a vote.

    Triston Casas- 2018 Draft #26 overall

    He played almost exclusively at 1B last season in Greenville.

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 17 vs Dolphins

    Hey, I’ll be back in board next week without doubt. I’m just mystified about this week. But that’s the hand they’ve been dealt and let’s roll.

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 17 vs Dolphins

    But they shouldn’t be, and that’s why this thread exists. I should have excluded Rex from my “everyone”, he was great. Sony was good, but too many times he looked like he graduated from the Laurence Maroney School of Dance and not UGA. But overall he was not part of the problem.

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 17 vs Dolphins

    Everyone, and I hate to include him but Bill. I will never understand - because we will never get a real explanation - why they pissed away 1:42 or whatever at the end of the first half. That is the most un-Patriots coaching move I have ever seen these past 20 years.

    2019 Pats: OL Discussion

    I think the o-line is the #1 position group where having a truly weak link can have a domino effect that hurts the performance of the entire line, so getting Wynn back could really improve things across the board.

    2019 TB12: Everyday Is Like Sunday

    I think Brady just wants to control the endgame here, now that he’s reached an age where he knows the end is coming. If he wants to go year-to-year with the Pats, he can do that (and the Pats will gladly oblige). If he wants a 2 or 3 year deal he’ll either get that, because the franchise tag...

    That'd be up the butt, Bob - Kraft Charged with Soliciting.

    Could be he wasn’t expecting the spa to end up being of the seedy Asian variety when he shot the scene.

    2019 Week 7 Pre-Game Thread: Jets

    I always thought a trap game needed two things: 1) A lightly-regarded opponent. 2) A big/tough game the week before (the letdown trap game) or a big/tough game or bye week the week after (the look-ahead trap game). I don’t see the Pats talking a division game against a bitter rival lightly...

    Edit: Removed. Not the best place for an Archer joke. I always enjoyed stiffy’s posts as well. It’s a shame to see the site lose two of the old guard in such short order.

    2019 Raiders: Khalil Mack Has No Comment

    It seems AB (understandably) thinks of himself as a self-made man. Lightly recruited at the college level, 6th round pick, and made himself into a superstar. The problem is, he thinks that means that NO ONE can criticize him or tell him what to do. Coaches and Organizations are all part of...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I’m actually trying to figure out if I can have my brother create an account up in MA, where I can log in from SC and get NESN and all the Pats games. Sounds like that’s a possibility?

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Does it geolocate you in CA and give you the local ABC, CBS, etc?

    The Nation's Tears: Volume III

    Yup, he's being too honest, that's his problem here. The Pats defensive gameplan was universally praised as brilliant. It should come as no surprise then that he wasn't prepared for it. But by talking about it like this, he's throwing read meat in front of trolls and mediots who will claim...

    2019 Trade Deadline

    If Dombrowski called the Mets and said "I'm interested in Conforto, according to this site I should send you Rafael Devers and like $500K, what do you think?" the next thing he'd hear would be the boom of Brodie Van Wagenen breaking the sound barrier on his way to the fax machine to send the...
