    2019 Pats: In-Season Roster & Injury Discussion

    I don't know I don't think he's hopeless (sometimes he does well, particularly when he's on the move). I don't know enough to know if its strength or technique or what on the blocks he is losing. I think he's good enough that someone picks him up so he doesn't make the practice squad but who...

    2019 Pats: In-Season Roster & Injury Discussion

    Tomlinson looks like a pure blocking TE which Watson isn't at this end. It's a really need because Izzo has been getting shellacked on the edge (which has been a problem for the run game and Michel in particular)

    He's Gone: Patriots Sans Antonio

    It's becoming increasingly clear that BB would have kept Brown (giving him all the first tem reps on Friday is a big clue, and most of the local reporters are suggesting it, and Brady and BB are being particularly surly about it). Does that change anyone's thinking? I guess I'd have been fine...

    He's Gone: Patriots Sans Antonio

    Hernandez was kind of crazy when he was on the team--putting aside the string of murders, he was apparently a very difficult teammate, he threatened to fuck up wes welker, etc--and they kept him for years and resigned him. Crazy takes you a long way. Corey Dillon was crazy. Moss was crazy...

    He's Gone: Patriots Sans Antonio

    Herandezsayswhat. EDIT: They don't need to learn anything from this. Depending on how the salary cap plays out they got one of the best players in football on a reasonable contract and all the guy had to do was just be a normal asshole--as opposed to a witness intimidating lawbreaking sexual...

    He's Gone: Patriots Sans Antonio

    Didn't he have that odd contractual term saying he couldn't do anything post signing that puts the team, the organization, etc. in a bad light? I'd say threatening the artist qualifies.

    Your wish is BB's command. Released.

    Not that it matters (if you get assaulted or harassed by someone maybe you should be looking for money!) but I wouldn't be so sure that (2) isn't looking for money--she has a plaintiff's attorney, is contacting the media through her attorney, etc. To answer RedOctober there are a lot of reasons...

    Yes. The complaint actually says that he ejaculated on her without her knowledge when she was watching a church video which is illegal and immoral (and also totally gross) but not rape under most definitions (generally you need genital or anal contact of some kind). Also the use of force isn't...

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    One reviewer (maybe Steven Pinker?) said he relies on "straw we"--as in "why do we assume that some people are naturally great musicians when it actually takes a lot of practice" and most of us are like "nah, we think that every really good musicians practice a fuckton".

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    If I told them once I told them a hundred times to put Sean Penn first. At least Sean got the bigger dressing room.

    And Gordon while they have him. And save edelman a bit for later.

    Wk. 2 at Dolphins: We’re on to Miami

    It is nutty that on a road divisional game where we're down 3 starting OL we're winning 13-0, winning TOP 2-1, outgaining them 220 yards-50 and folks are pissed because our averageish kicker i(excluding experience, kickoffs and contending with weather) is overpaid.

    Wk. 2 at Dolphins: We’re on to Miami

    Every single time we play an ex coordinator they do better than expected--it's a big divisional game for the Fins and Flores knows a thing or two about how the Pats do things. This isn't a surprise.

    Yeah, my best prediction since I said Gronk was hall of fame bound in about September of his rookie year.

    [LOCKED] 2019 AB Watch: Non-legal Views Only

    I think he plays and plays a ton--like half the snaps or more. First it's a weak opponent so you can get away with a WR who doesn't quite now the offense. Second you want to start establishing the Brown/Brady connection asap. And third, it's kind of a message--both to the team and to the world...

    A good lawyer would. The world is full of not very good lawyers. Also the joke wasn't that bad and it's certainly not a joke about rape.

    2019 Dolphins: Trust the Process

    It's not just the top ten picks though--it's also having consistently high second - fourth round picks. So even though the Jags blew their non-Ramsey top ten picks they also had a lot of hits the the second and third round- AJ Cann and Yeldon and Jack and Robinson and Ngokue. Likewise the Rams...

    2019 Dolphins: Trust the Process

    I'm not sure tanking is that good a strategy in the NFL. The best way to win in the NFL is obviously to have a very good QB, but even having the number one pick in the draft most years doesn't get you that--you might get a Peyton but you might get Stafford and you might get Tim Couch. Tua seems...
