    Agholor, just because it frees me to add “UNLIKE AGHOLOR” to every sentence

    If we are, whatcha Guyana do about it?

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    That thing could be the best software ever written and it's still not going to overcome a lack of talent across Stanford's roster.

    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy

    Yeah, if that’s handling it badly I wish I could handle all decisions in my career that badly.

    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy

    Id argue that we are in a results based business here and winning three Super Bowls in those seven years undermines the idea that he handled it poorly. In your opinion, would handling it ‘better’ have meant four Super Bowls or five? Or is your definition of ‘better’ predicated on some other...

    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy

    This isn't necessarily the hill I want to die on, but I think we're missing the forest for the trees here. Yes, the two teams were in different places and arguably it was more justified for the 2005 Pack to draft Rodgers (given that detailed fact pattern) to replace Favre than it was for the...

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    Tattoos vs. no Tattoos (might not be able to fill out the latter squad) Players from teams East of Detroit vs. those West of Detroit (or above/below the Mason Dixon line, if that gives you roughly 16 teams on each - might need to include SF in the south field to make it work) Players from...

    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy

    That’s what I was thinking. This is exactly what he had with Favre. He has the right to be pissed about other stuff but drafting his successor when he’s 37 isn’t one of them.

    Pats Depth Chart: an Early Look

    Anytime slater is out there running Go routes is not a great time for the pats offense. Agreed that he’s not really a WR.

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    Why?Historically there’s been a statistically significant value arbitrage in drafting guys who slid due to pot, even before the NFL stopped suspending for it. I don’t think we should draft PCP smoking serial killers anymore, but guys who puff don’t seem to be a big deal. Hell, it’s arguably way...

    Pats Draft Rd.3/96: EDGE Ronnie Perkins

    The anti SMU take: https://www.si.com/nfl/patriots/news/instant-reaction-on-new-england-patriots-drafting-ronnie-perkins I for one know that I know nothing so I can’t speculate on who’s right. I read SMU and I’m like SOUNDS BAD BOB! Then I read an article like this and I’m like CANTON BOUND...

    It’s already been said but damn, they have to make him wear 11.

    NFL Draft Rd.4-7: Everything Goes Gamethread

    It looked like they don’t move him around at all- every highlight was him split out wide right.

    Pats Draft Rd.4/120: RB Rhamondre Stevenson

    There has always been arbitrage value in drafting guys who slid based on weed.
