    This team has so many truly awful offensive players. But at least there's also the lack of defense. So they've got that going for them.

    This is a worse team than last year. Impressive.

    Bruins Prospect News and Notes

    Beecher is out (again) for about a month with an upper body injury. Supposedly not related to his shoulder issue from last year. The guy has had a go of it with injuries at Michigan, and it's definitely not helping his development.

    The Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones Thread

    I'm replying to myself here because I think it's somewhat pertinent to the ongoing discussion, but also has proven (thus far, SUPER early into the process) to be true. I continue to hear naysayers point out that Mac is somehow "maxed out" and I find that to be a hilariously bad take. Nagy...

    Pats: Practice Squad

    Absolutely. I'm just saying, people tend to focus more energy on hoping the shiny draft picks make it to the practice squad but in actuality, it's the Matt LaCosse's of the world who will ultimately add more value there.

    Pats: Practice Squad

    Nice. I actually think deep depth is a much more valuable use for the practice squad than the dream of developing a raw (i.e. bad) player into a useful one. We always hope that the young binkie who got cut makes it to the PS, but those guys almost never amount to anything. Certainly some do, and...

    The Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones Thread

    I don't recall Cam taking any snaps this preseason out of empty formations or in the hurry-up. When Cam was out there, the passing game looked...well a lot like last year's. There were some good throws, and the velocity looked better, but the scheme was very vanilla and clunky. With Mac, it...

    Pats Preseason: QB Edition

    Yeah, Cam's throw was on target and on time. I chalk that up to a case of Meyers lacking in foot speed to separate from a true LB, and the LB making a helluva play at the catch point. Normally 40 yards times are SO overblown, but that really was close to a straight 40 yard dash and Jakobi's 4.63...

    Shaun Wade to the Patriots

    The optimistic take is Wade played through turf toe last year, and that robbed him of some of his short area explosion. I think he was always over hyped but his physical profile and pedigree are worth a flyer. He can certainly have a Jalen Mills career if he stays healthy and cleans up some of...

    Shaun Wade to the Patriots

    LOL at thinking NE is the only team to incorporate a Foxboro Flu to roster management. If you have a couple of extra rookies crushing it at a position, you're better off redshirting than cutting bait. As an aside, coming up with an apropos name for the Baltimore Foxboro Flu is bringing me a lot...

    Shaun Wade to the Patriots

    I'm not buying this part. If Wade were crushing it, Baltimore would find room for a 2nd rookie CB. No team has ever said "Oh no, we have too many young, cost-controlled rookie corners who are playing well. We have to dump one!"

    Shaun Wade to the Patriots

    One note of caution is that Baltimore is a pretty smart organization and good, cheap, cost controlled corners are very valuable. If Wade were truly having a a strong camp, he wouldn't be available. It simply wouldn't make any sense for Baltimore to trade him. I understand his preseason stats are...

    Poll: Cam, Mac, Brian or?

    Being early on Mac as a legit 1st rounder was one of my better calls (broken clocks, et al). If anything, he's exceeded my expectations so far and I was really high on the guy. He ended up being about 2" bigger than what Draftscout had him listed as, and the arm strength has looked better than...

    Pats: 53-man Roster Projections

    It doesn't even need to be an OL. They've used Elandon Roberts, Dan Klecko, Bryan Cox, etc. Heck, they may decide Bentley or Perkins could play short yardage FB.

    Pats: 53-man Roster Projections

    No, of course BB hasn't kept Johnson around out of sentimentality (I think he's a good story for the fans, that's all). He's kept Johnson around because the overall WR/TE/FB have been absolutely dreadful the past two years and they didn't have a better option. In 2019, he was a PS guy (which is...

    Pats: 53-man Roster Projections

    IDK, if Johnson is on the team, that's a bad sign for me. I don't see him as Jonnu's backup at all; I think Johnson is FB-only. And he's not a very good FB--the PFF grades tell that story, and he offers zero value in the passing game. People tend to remember Johnson's highlight reel blocks, and...

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    Hollinger's model valued Kanter at $11.5m, with the caveat he wouldn't touch that figure in real life. Hollinger figured he'd still see about half of that, but in reality it was a quarter. Counting and advanced stats tend to like Kanter, even if the eye test and the league's valuation don't.

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    I'm not trying to be a hair-puller (h/t, nighthob), I just think there's an awful lot of best case scenario thinking going on in this thread. Horford: A lot of is being put on his 35 year old shoulders here. We're sure he's not washed? TL has never been able to stay healthy here - that leaves...
