    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    I don't disagree with anything you wrote - they threw it over 50 times in the Snow Bowl with a simple offense. That was more out of necessity. But I remember the 2002 opener being different. They were much more willing to throw the ball.

    2020 Tompa Bay: Tom Tom Club

    The reason it's not a good look is because the comparison to suicides has specifically been a right wing talking point. I doubt he took the post down because he found out the data was wrong. He more likely took the post down because it was generating massive negative feedback.

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    In the 2002 opener didn't he pass on like 20 straight plays on one point? They came out shotgun and threw a crap ton. He was definitely a game manager in 2001 but even as early as 2002 he was slinging it.

    2020 Tompa Bay: Tom Tom Club

    Brady took it down before the story expired. It’s gone now.

    It never gets old - reflections on Oct 17-20, 2004

    Buck’s call was better than Castig’s. His voice even seems to crack a tiny bit on “longed”.

    Most exciting plays in Red Sox history (for the Casual Fan)

    I was at that game. It was insane. Like you wrote the ball was past him when he caught it

    Felger: Red Sox offered Mookie what he asked for, and were turned down

    Nah, they just lucked into it with 3 different GMs and 3 different managers

    Yeah that's fair, can't disagree

    Patriots defeat Bills on 11/1

    It's been striking to me how easily I've been able to not care and to distance myself. I still pay attention but I don't feel emotionally tied to it at all. I'm barely watching the NFL or sports as a whole. It's been pretty liberating. Maybe I'll get sucked back in down the road but right now...

    2020 Pats: Roster & Beyond (non-QB edition)

    You're right that the point is to get talent into the system, I'm just not convinced that DK Metcalf would be a star in NE like he is in Seattle. Maybe I'm wrong. It would hard to believe that they were so far off in judging talent. Yeah it's really hard to say. Part of the issue with Harry was...

    2020 Pats: Roster & Beyond (non-QB edition)

    The problem I have with these hindsight analyses is that they assume that the player would have gotten the same opportunity in NE as they did in (insert team here). If the Pats had drafted Metcalf, would he have even seen the field? We have no way to know, but based on everything we've seen from...

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk.7 vs 49ers

    My “fear” is that BB is too stubborn to rebuild - that he’ll try to max out wins every year. And therefore maybe hold on to pieces too long. With all of their DB depth they should absolutely trade Gilmore. Should probably trade Thuney too.

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk.7 vs 49ers

    There's some truth to this, but another 33-6 type loss seems far more likely

    2020 Pats: Deal or No Deal - NE Trade Discussion Thread

    What @DJnVa said, but again go back to say 2011. Pats finished 31st in yards allowed. But only 15th in points. Due to combination of factors including field position, special teams, etc. But one other point on having a good offense is that when a team is ahead by multiple scores in the second...

    2020 Pats: Deal or No Deal - NE Trade Discussion Thread

    I agree with this. The D has not been good. But for years we have seen a great Patriots offense make a mediocre D look better than it was in terms of the points per game allowed stat.

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk.7 vs 49ers

    Going to be similar to what happened with Fenway post sellout streak. Gillette will still sell out because it's football and I expect the Pats will remain competitive. But we'll see more and more empty seats (if people are ever allowed back in the stadium).

    2020 Pats: Deal or No Deal - NE Trade Discussion Thread

    Just picking out one line here but the first four games of 2017 were arguably worse. The defense was also really bad circa 2011.

    2020 Pats: Deal or No Deal - NE Trade Discussion Thread

    Moreover, I don't get the impression that BB wants a $40-45M cap number for his QB. If he got gifted Wilson or Mahomes right now obviously he'd figure it out, but I bet he wants to be somewhere south of that like with Brady. It's really solidifying the point that the Pats were extremely lucky to...

    2020 Pats: Deal or No Deal - NE Trade Discussion Thread

    Jamie Collins fetched a 3rd in similar circumstances. Not sure how you'd rate Thuney vs. Collins at time of trade. I think Thuney could get a bit more in return. YMMV. On the flip side, with far less film on the 2021 class (and a weird season).. you could probably make the argument that the...
