    Offensive depth chart -- down in the trenches

    Any reason specified? This guy is turning out to be the Robinson Checo of the 2023-2024 Pats.

    Offensive depth chart -- down in the trenches

    Jake Andrews isn't on the C depth chart at all? Is he not in camp for some reason?

    Damien Harris tees off on BB over 2022 offense

    "Take away" surely seems like misstatement. McDaniels went to get the big bag in Las Vegas, so he wasn't sticking around. The question then would be who in 2022 have stepped into his shoes as OC. Starting with the 2021 staff: Ivan Fears was deeply respected, but clearly headed to retirement...

    I'd expect he'll land in college when/if he wants to. But shed no tears for Josh McD! For he's making $10M per year through 2027 doin' nothin'. https://fansided.com/posts/josh-mcdaniels-contract-length-how-much-will-raiders-eat-01he5xmbz3hx

    Round 3: Celtics vs Pacers

    Sometimes when you flip a coin, it comes up heads 4 straight times. If someone teaches the Pacers to play even some transition defense, they'll be terrifying. As it is, their inexperience caught up to them in every game, and the losses were fair and square. Let's root for the Wolves for a couple...

    Roasted GOAT

    It's wild - she noted she'd have to say "Ok, do you guys know who Drew Bledsoe is?", and when they inevitably didn't, she had a capsule bio important to the joke ("He was the Pats' QB before Brady, got hurt in a game, and never played for them again!"), threw it out, and then told a few roast...

    Roasted GOAT

    Nikki is on a big time promo tour post-roast, soaking up adulation she so righteously deserves. Her biggest point is that she put a ton of work into the roast, probably only doing a quarter of what she wrote, and working out the set in clubs, knowing full well jokes about people you may not know...

    Round 3: Celtics vs Pacers

    I would too, but it didn't change my expression every time Siakam calmly tossed in another midrange jumper. He was 4-5 on them in the 4th.

    Round 3: Celtics vs Pacers

    Exactly, and it was hailed as one of the most incredible shooting performances in the history of basketball. To nearly equal it (for a half) in the next game against a better defensive team should not have been possible. And yet, it happened. That becomes the fight then - how does one defend...

    Round 3: Celtics vs Pacers

    Looking at the shot chart and percentages is what's so staggering to me: https://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/shot-chart/202405210BOS.html The Pacers shot 71.4% from 2 for the entire 2nd half, 20-28, and a ton of that wasn't inside work, but 10-15 foot, high arcing jumpers. This is a...

    Roasted GOAT

    Totally understood. The point is that they're promoting the hell out of it with this event, and that's the biggest takeaway. Wild stuff can, and WILL, happen on Netflix live events. It's clever self-promotion. People are talking.

    Roasted GOAT

    The Comedy Central roasts were 2 hours (~less than 90 minutes aired due to commercials). They cut the bad roasts and roasters most of the time, and occasionally leave in a bad performance because the other roasters make note of how bad the performance was. The GROAT left everything there for the...

    NFL Schedule Release 2024

    After two years of hilarious anime schedules, the Chargers media team tries the same using Sims models: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gt0v7iW890 IMHO, big letdown. Sims are so limited in their expressions, it's hard to tell visual jokes competently.

    Arif Hasan Q&A

    Hi Arif! I am a pro sports fan, eschewing viewing of the college games for a variety of reasons. I find myself fascinated though with the ever-changing structures of college football, with the Power 5 coalescing into a Power 4 (or perhaps Power 2), the constant roster turnover from the transfer...

    R7/231 Jaheim Bell TE Florida State- Doesn't this guy get a thread?

    I was kidding - need to remember to add a satire tag. I just found it funny that Develin and Jakobs were listed at the exact same dimensions as players. And indeed, Juszczyk is the kind of player more teams should be seeking - selfless, dynamic, and able to line up effectively all over the place.

    R7/231 Jaheim Bell TE Florida State- Doesn't this guy get a thread?

    A fullback! We've seen such good success with that role, but he'll need to put on both weight and height to meet the requirements: Bell - 6'2", 240 lbs Develin - 6'3", 255 lbs Jakobs - 6'3", 255 lbs IMHO, the team offense truly took a hit when Jakobs left and was not formally replaced. I...
