    What do you want Pats to do with #3?

    Agree with this. Any trade down premised having a Minny pick land in the top 10, much less the top 5, in 2025 or 2026 is suspect. In other words, unless you’re genuinely down on Drake Maye/don’t feel conviction picking him, why the hell would you trade for a package that might, but might not...

    2024 NFL General Season News and Notes

    This is what these guys cost now. You can get away with not paying the going rate for top WR talent if you have Mahomes at QB and a guy like Kelce under a ridiculously under market deal, but the rest of the league isn’t so lucky. I guess you could go year to year on the tag and hope you mail a...

    2024 Playoffs Western Conference First Round: (4) LA Clippers vs (5) Dallas Mavericks

    I think there’s a scenario where LAC really pushes DEN, but I don’t see it with Dallas. How are they defending the Nuggets?

    What do you want Pats to do with #3?

He’s extremely adept at placing low percentage throws downfield, and I like that he is willing to test the boundaries….but is that gonna work in the NFL when his elite receivers aren’t pantsing corners all over the field? He doesn’t...

    2024 Playoffs Western Conference First Round: (2) Denver Nuggets vs (7) LA Lakers

    Nope. Totally defensible - they’re clearly the other team in the Celtics’ tier this year, they have the best player in the league, and they’re killers in close/late situations. I don’t recall reading much (anything?) in this forum suggesting the C’s wouldn’t have their hands full against Denver...

    2024 Playoffs Western Conference First Round: (2) Denver Nuggets vs (7) LA Lakers

    You missed a zero, but yeah. It’s absurd the Lakers blew this game with Russell looking like prime Klay on offense for three quarters, Davis and Lebron pouring points in at an efficient rate, and Murray shooting 9/24.

    2024 Playoffs Western Conference First Round: (2) Denver Nuggets vs (7) LA Lakers

    They the champs. Murray drills a Kobe special after LeBron misses the wide open shot.

    2024 Playoffs Western Conference First Round: (2) Denver Nuggets vs (7) LA Lakers

    I don’t understand why they’re running action after action through Russell here. Get LeBron the ball at the top and let him go to work.

    Round 1, Game 2 -- Toronto @ Boston

    Pack it in I guess why bother selling out, it’s only a playoff game
