    Week 2 NFL Game Thread

    They’ve littered the game with so many fouls, it’s just killing more and more exciting plays, and the overall flow of games. Gambling and fantasy keep it bullet proof, but I find myself disliking the on field product more and more, largely because of the number of flags being thrown.

    He’s right. I’ve hated that rule since it was instituted, but it was applied properly on that call.

    9/12/21 Squish the Fish

    I didn’t think the o line had a particularly good game. Some push on the ground, but some negative plays as well. And though Jones made some clutch throws under duress, he was still under duress a fair amount. What I saw anyway.

    9/12/21 Squish the Fish

    For fuck sake, the defense didn’t lose the game. And there were no glaring strategic errors by JMD or BB. There was a back breaking fumble on the probable winning drive of the game. It blows. It happens.

    No, they didn’t. They held an NFL offense to 17 points in 2021. This is on Harris.

    Irish o line is a disaster. This feels like a loss, and they aren’t sniffing the playoff unless that fatal flaw somehow gets fixed. Fast.

    Now it's Sale's turn: Sale has COVID, will not start Sunday (9/10 update)

    2 out of the rotation now. This feels like a back-breaker with the upcoming schedule. Maybe he's back for the soft last week?

    Wow. What a gut punch turnover.

    Antonio Brown and his million dollar smile. Damn that pesky off-field “stuff”.

    Post Season Poll

    We don't. Hence my use of "if".

    Post Season Poll

    I'm optimistically going with yes. They're likely going to exceed my mid 80's prediction for wins before the season. I think they'll be more like 88-90, which should sneak them in. Can even see them winning the WC game, if pitching lines up for Sale or Evo. But it ends there.

    Recommend Football, especially Patriots Books

    I'll add to the chorus recommending When Pride Still Mattered. An outstanding read, and really transcends football as an American story. Most of the Patriot-centric books I've read have been covered by others. I'd also include A Civil War by John Feinstein. A really compelling, inside look at...

    Sam “Bam” Cunningham passes away

    Man, another great former Patriot gone. The mid 70's teams with him and Mac Heron were the first I ever rooted for. Bam was force for a few years there. RIP.

    He really did. Very impressed. Him, the backs, receivers, and tight end are the definite strengths of the team.

    CFB 2021 Week 1

    Yeah, in all seriousness, some big red flags on that side of the ball. And O line is going to be a work in progress for a while. They have a manageable schedule, and could make the playoff. But they haven’t closed the gap on Bama or OSU.
