    Your top "forgot he was a Red Sox"

    I thought that was at Fenway (game 4). I thought game 1 was in the 10th knoblauch dropping the throw at 2nd but still getting the out (ump ruled in the transfer, but even McCarver was like “that’s a terrible call”.) Then the next batter hit into a dp to end the inning, and then Bernie walked it off.

    Didn't realize this either. I remembered Whitt for hitting a grand slam off Lee Smith in 1989 to put the Blue Jays up 11-10 over the Red Sox in that awful game where the Red Sox led 10-0 midway through the game.

    Dante Bichette, Carlos Baerga, Mark Kotsay, Steve Ontiveros. And Bernard Gilkey was one of my fav non Red Sox players because of winning me a roto baseball league in 1996, and I really completely forgot about his stint in 2000 until mentioned upthread.

    Celebrating What Is

    That game also signalled the end of the Lee Johnson era and the start of the Ken Walter one, thanks to that awful fumble that the Chargers scored a TD on.

    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    If you're going to send Chris Canty along with Harry, I think you should have to include Dominique Easley and Andy Katzenmoyer to get all the Patriots best first round busts from the last 25 years together.

    Adam Vinatieri Announces Retirement

    I looked it up to see if the video was available: View: The play right before the miss was a pretty nice back shoulder catch by Jefferson on the sidelines on a 27 yard heave by Bledsoe (off his back foot), with no Timeouts left for the Patriots. As...

    The Best Rest for 17 Games?

    Yeah, I was thinking something like this (as it would also somewhat keep stats/records in line with the past so many years that have used the 16 games schedule). But as has been mentioned, especially around QBs, it also wouldn't help the fan experience if you bought a ticket for the one game...

    NFL Draft Rd.4-7: Everything Goes Gamethread

    Can only hope he has a big game against the Falcons and then gets the nickname Cump.

    Pats Draft Rd.2/38: DI Christian Barmore

    Was he really a bust, though? 160 HR and 20 bWAR out of a middle infielder is solid.

    I didn't think the refs were allowed to call penalties on kickoff returns by Desmond Howard on kickoffs by Adam Vinatieri.

    Pats Roster Planning: Offense

    My only speculation (and am not a kicker by any means) could be that kickers have a little more time to prepare on FGs from 30-39 (i.e. if it's 3rd down from the 14, they know there's a good chance they're kicking the next play, unless they're Billy Cundiff), while TDs can be more sudden. (I...

    Pats Roster Planning: Defense

    You could probably add 2005 and 2008 Steelers and Big Ben to the list, unless 17 tds in a season is great. (I forgot he was worse in 2008 with 15 int)

    Nolan Arenado traded to St. Louis

    Not to be too pedantic, but that was a lot more than 15-20 years ago. Like 94 or 95. (At least by WAR).

    Greatest Individual Seasons: By Position

    Yes, a bit of a homer take, but Ben Coates in 1994 was pretty good: 96 rec, 1174 yards, 12.2 ypc, 7 td, while being Bledsoe’s goto. The team passed a lot that year, but a lot of that was because their primary RB was the corpse of Marion Butts. and I never realized Christiansen had such a good 4...

    Bledsoe interview

    Yeah, sandwiched between 1-15 and 2-14, that season seemed fantastic. I will state, though, that that win against the Oilers was one of my favorites pre-Bledsoe (I was just too young to really remember the Squish the Fish AFC Championship game or much else up to that poitn). Listening to it on...

    Givens was a rookie the next year...looks like it was #85, which was Wiggins. Who had a lot more weight to throw around than Givens.

    2000: The Lost Year

    I think the game I remember the most from that season was the one against the Bears. Mainly because the defensive front got absolutely no pressure on their qb (the Shane Mathews Band), and he completed what seemed like 20 passes in a row at one point (it was actually ‘only’ ~15) Was why I was...
