    2018 Tom M-F&^%$ing Brady: Still Proving It

    Is he getting crap? I haven't heard of this story anywhere except in this thread. Anyway, if it pisses of Mets and Jets fans, all the better. It's a fucking nickname, who gives a shit?

    Decisions to be made

    1. Gronk and the only other answer that even tempts me is 2007 Moss. But Gronk is the ultimate red zone weapon. 2.a. Trey Flowers 2.b. Ty Law

    More Impressive Stretch During Brady/BB Era?

    That’s fair I guess. Not sure why 2009 stands out, maybe because the playoff game was a joke.

    More Impressive Stretch During Brady/BB Era?

    2008 I don't hold against them, but in 2002 they were 9-7 and needed a miracle in that last home game against the Dolphins to even get to 9. That's the worst BB team since 2001 by far. 2009 wasn't a bad team by mortal standards, but that team had zero chance of advancing in the playoffs which...

    More Impressive Stretch During Brady/BB Era?

    This. The 2007 team is the best team I've ever seen, even if they were losing steam down the stretch and then for some reason they cancelled the Super Bowl that year. But championships matter, if that team had finished the job or if that stupid 2010 Jet game plays out differently I would...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    Mazz doesn't think that you can build around Steph Curry. To their credit Felger and Murray spent the few minutes I was listening yesterday staging a "hot take" intervention to get him to move off that point, but he just kept digging in. I know it is schtick but Mazz is just terrible.

    Rank Brady's postseason losses by pain and regret

    The Philly game bothers me a lot less because they had just won two out of three. It bothers me even less now that they won again. I don't know that Butler would have made a difference, he wasn't good that year and there were signs all season long that the defense was going to be their undoing...

    Celebrating What Is

    It’s not like I’m losing any sleep if he’s in it again, but IMO the America’s Game series is fucking awesome in general, and the first four Patriot ones are amazing. The last one, not so much. Maybe it was for some other reason, but Edelman being in there again, and the tie in to the squirrel...

    Thoughts about media types who don't have their own threads

    I took it as an observation about the contingent who are choosing to go to the White House and those who are not. I don't see it as insensitive, unless he's made other comments about it Buckley isn't making any judgments about the players in either contingent, only noting that it seems to be...

    Celebrating What Is

    It's the only one I've only watched once. These are truly first world football problems. I concur that I was hoping Jules would sit this one out, though. The other 4 America's Games are sublime.

    Celebrating What Is

    Brady did 2001. 2001 was Brady, Milloy and Vinatieri 2003 Weiss, Rodney and Willie 2004 Troy Brown, Bruschi and Belichick 2014 Edelman, Gronk and McCourty 2016 Edelman, Blount and Hightower

    Rodney Harrison - Patriot Hall of Famer

    My favorite Patriot from the first part of the Dynasty.

    Greatest play in Patriots History?

    Maybe it delays things a bit (although maybe not, I think BB had seen enough of Brady at that point and would have made the move regardless), but I refuse to buy an argument that one kick in a divisional round game in 2001 is the difference between two decades of dominance and 6 Super Bowl...

    2019 NFL Draft Round 1 Game Thread - No Spoilers

    Why are there 100,000 people there? Man the NFL has done an amazing job of turning this into an event. I’m not a draft guy, if it’s a crap shoot for BB and company I don’t get investing any time in this, but I’m obviously in the vast, vast minority.

    Re-setting the AFC

    I agree with this. I’d put them in a group as one of the favorites. I just don’t think they stand out from a handful of other teams in the same category.

    Re-setting the AFC

    Yeah, I just think last year’s team is the weakest Pats team to win it all since 2001, clearly not as good as several Pats teams over the last decade that did not win, was the beneficiary of really good injury luck, and did not get better on paper in the offseason (admittedly with the draft...

    Re-setting the AFC

    I don't know that the Pats are the clear favorites, or even in a tier by themselves with KC and/or LA. They got hot at the right time last year, but over the long haul of the season I don't think they were markedly better than a handful of other AFC teams. They also were remarkably healthy...

    That'd be up the butt, Bob - Kraft Charged with Soliciting.

    Without getting into details, I’ve been far from perfect in my life in my personal relationships and did something that many (most) would consider to be morally reprehensible. I’ve learned a lot from that incident, but the most important thing I learned is that you cannot spend time worrying...
