    Week 15 Game Thread

    Huh. It’s almost like having the better QB matters . . . (funniest part of all this is Phins fans talking themselves into Tua).

    Week 15 Game Thread

    He’s missed so many throws tonight and has been completely bailed out by Waddle/Hill multiple times (& Bills DBs dropping easy INTs— he’s getting Mahomes pick luck). My fervent wish as a Pats fan is that Tua plays JUST well enough to stay QB1 for Miami. B/c he’s not that good. Miami is really...

    It’s like watching the Astors against the Yankees.

    2022-2023 General Celtics thread

    It’s funny— during the playoffs this past season my 9 year old suddenly became a big basketball fan. Like absorbing everything. So we watched everything during the preseason. And we’re watching a game and he says definitively “I like Sam Hauser. He’ll be good. You shouldn’t make fun of him.”...

    Kyrie is an antisemite. And we have schadenfreude?

    Probably the only possibility out there. Though b/c of the Davis trade the Lakers don’t fully control their own pick until 2026 I believe. And I’m not sure what player on the Lakers roster would move the needle (I mean, Matt Ryan is one of their top rotation guys). And the Nets are pretty...

    Kyrie is an antisemite. And we have schadenfreude?

    I get what Brooklyn was trying to do. The only thing they could do once they decided they weren’t trading Durant— run it back, hope for good health, hope Simmons would figure it all out & move beyond his ghosts in Philly (not trying to diminish any mental health issues he is having) and most...

    Kyrie is an antisemite. And we have schadenfreude?

    Just curious— right now what do you think Kylie could fetch? (Note: Halloween characters like Corpse of Wesrbrick & Exposing Primo don’t count). This is one of the most toxic assets in sports right now.

    All true. And with Pittsburgh you can get away w that. Will be interesting to see if it’s just rust or not. And the conservatism was odd. It was still close. Anyway, it’s year 3 of the Tua experiment and I wonder if the Phins really know what they have. (They certainly have lined up the...

    Happy Yankees Elimination Day!

    Boone’s lineup choices are utterly fascinating. It’s almost like he believes that if you’ve played longer you’re automatically better (otherwise the IKF starts make no sense). As a Sox fan, my hope every year is that the Yankees do juuust well enough to retain Boone as manager. I don’t think...

    So literally the best thing Collingsworth can say about Tua afterwards is “he made it through the game.”. Ladies & gentlemen, your Dolphins franchise QB! As a Pats fan, I pray McDaniels hangs his hat on this guy. Unfortunately, it seems he’s smart. On the other hand, they have no path to a...

    Josh McDaniels is like the Derek Carr of coaches. Or vice versa.

    Padres @ Mets

    It’s the last gasp of a desperate manager who’s realizing, not for the first time, that he doesn’t have the answers. Like any of them. The good news for Mets fans is that the year after they can Showalter, they should win the WS.

    And I guarantee McCutchen was on PEDs before he turned into an ordinary player. See, I can do it too, Andrew.

    Nah. He wouldn’t bring his elite closer into a tie game in extras. Especially in the playoffs.

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk. 3 vs Ravens

    Bledsoe was amazing. He zipped balls into windows that didn’t exist. To the likes of Michael Timpson, Vincent Brisby & Leroy Thompson. Bledsoe in 1994 especially was extraordinary. Dueling with Marino, the comeback against the Vikings, the run late in the season. And then battling through the...

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk. 3 vs Ravens

    Let’s do a thought experiment— if Tua made the exact same decisions Mac made today, the exact same throws, what would we be saying? We’d be shredding him. And rightfully so. Mac made some great plays today & some dogshit ones. It fell far short of what is needed from a good QB never mind a...

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk. 3 vs Ravens

    I think it’s fair to say that through three games this season, Mac has regressed in terms of decision making. Which, given his physical limitations, is critically important. The question is why— change in offensive scheme? coaches? defenses prepping for him differently? Something else? The...

    The Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones Thread

    Yup. 2000. Before that 1995. When Bledsoe got hurt (separated his shoulder) and wasn’t the same the rest of the season. They finished 5-11. Feels kinda like that. Hopefully 2023 is like 1996. But with less of that welfare fraud Favre.
