Or is all of this just to set up a 75 yard bomb to Cookie on 2nd and 10 after grimacing in pain during a first down handoff to Lewis?
This is the part that passes me off the most. The marginal difference was never worth the loss of Jimmy insurance. The cruel irony is that Jimmy’s fine play made that second pick less valuable...which Bill might have expected, at least to to a degree, given his assessment of JG’s abilities.Hey, at least we have a 2nd round pick instead of that 3rd round pick we would have gotten if we let Jimmy walk.
Not surprised. Do you make anything of the picture of the right thumb? Chao’s early morning call plausible? And if it is the thumb, are we on to Hoyer?
Co-sign. I was thinking this was all more or less fine, like that one time Brady missed a random practice a few years ago, we all thought it was serious with something unreported. Got to be a huge thread, wound up being nothing except good times for future trolling.Frankly I was doing alright until this.
As well it should be (at least the part about the trade itself).
DRS either is busy or composing his usual thoughtful answer.Care to elaborate while my blood pressure shoots through the roof?
Any writer/reporter who grappled with the Jimmy G trade and didn't question it because of a perceived loss of incremental Brady insurance until this week is precluded from raising the issue with any level of sanctimony.
Like I said yesterday, if the books thought that Brady wasn’t going to play in any seriousness, the line would be OTB. They don’t leave lines up to get hammered. The public moves are wrong more than they are right
That’s why I asked DRS whether a couple weeks can make a difference. I can see Hoyer playing the Bledsoe role, somehow getting past this game. SB — totally different, and if it’s Minnesota ...Talking ourselves into Brian Hoyer winning the two biggest games of the year is going to be challenging.
While it opened at 9, it was up to at least 9.5 before these reports.
Jacksonville would eat Hoyer alive...there is no way this team gets past Jax without TB.That’s why I asked DRS whether a couple weeks can make a difference. I can see Hoyer playing the Bledsoe role, somehow getting past this game. SB — totally different, and if it’s Minnesota ...
It would be a pick em probably, so yeah there’s plenty a chance they could still win. Blake Bortles isn’t exactly Aaron Rodgers.
Jesus, I nearly had a heart attack. This seems pretty close to a best case scenario.I’ll put a full blog post up tonight, but based on how his thumb looks and the position of what looks like a brace under the glove, I’d go with a strained ulnar collateral ligament - same ligament Pedroia tore a couple years ago, and Trout this past year. If that’s what it is he would play this Sunday but might be a little hindered and it could get worse over the course of the game. If that is the case he would definitely benefit from the additional two weeks before the Super Bowl
The Pats defense is going to eat Bortles alive, too. Without Brady, this is a total rock fight, but the Pats still have a chance.
The Jags lost to Josh McCown and Blaine Gabbert this year, and two weeks ago the Bills held them to 10 points in Jacksonville. Obviously I'd rather have Brady, but it won't be hopeless without him.
I can’t bring myself to click on anything involving Chao, care to summarize?Not surprised. Do you make anything of the picture of the right thumb? Chao’s early morning call plausible? And if it is the thumb, are we on to Hoyer?
Edit — Here is the Chao piece —
That matters. It also matters that the rest of us are really desperate and uninformed. Keep on keepin' on.Keep in mind I’m working with absolutely no inside knowledge here.
Aside from the fact that I’m incredibly fucking smart, that’s gotta count for something
This is absurd. None of those hands are even wearing gloves.So, just doing some research on this open finger dislocation thing...yuck:
