    10/4/22 Getting some fun out of life

    I'm Ok with letting Hosmer play a game so maybe he can go into the offseason thinking he can still play baseball. Same with Eovaldi. Whereas one game will make little or no difference to Casas right now.

    Is "'viable' 4th string QBs" a thing? Who would theoretically be more viable and available?

    Brady is back….back again

    This is very fair. And re-reading my own posts on this, I'm really not "blaming" Brady. This is who he is. I doubt either of them knew it 10 years ago (even if he hoped for his current level of success).

    Brady is back….back again

    He is the issue, I agree. All I'm saying is that for all the GOAT talk, when you get right down to it, he's not a whole lot different than any other pro athlete ever, most of whom would tell Mr. Applegate*: "I'll keep playing at a high level into my 40s, even if it means divorce and even if I...

    Brady is back….back again

    As great as he is, he's like nearly every other pro athlete ever in that they keep playing as long as they can. Indeed, many (most?) play (or try to play) *longer* than they actually can, and have to be told that "it's time to go." The only part of him that's different in this regard is that he...

    I think the post-Ian help ads would be more effective if they showed fewer wrecked boats

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk. 4 @ Green Bay

    You're ultimately right about the "bar." Being "great" for a rookie 3rd stringer coming in cold is irrelevant in the long term. But isnt the context of him being a 3rd string rookie entering midgame a contributing factor to pocket presence and inaccuracy, as opposed to those shortcomings...

    2022 Bruins Camps

    2.7M?! I'm just going to change Foligno's first name to "Jesus" now, instead of waiting to the inevitable moments on Opening Night when I'm shouting "Jesus, Foligno" when he does or doesn't do something he should or should not have.

    Hoyer does seem to have the requisite firebox in the belly.

    Dante S. or Dont'a H? Regardless, I think both have had enough.

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk. 4 @ Green Bay

    I think "decent enough under the circumstances" is pretty accurate. There aren't a lot of comps for 3rd string rookies taking snaps mid game. Brissett did it here. Hodges in Pit a few years ago. I'm sure there's others. Saying he was bad is like saying the 7th grade performance of Macbeth...

    All that said, one of his first throws was originally chalked as a nerves-related turf-ball, but on replay turned out to be a well-thrown low liner that Agholor should have caught.

    I hope Guy isn't long-term. They really missed him Sunday.

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 season

    It may not be an "offense" to his marriage, but "I'm in an open relationship" is not really a defense to inappropriate conduct w/r/t others.

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 season

    Exactly what they want the public to think. But I suspect other front offices will manage to get the "real story" somehow if they're ever on the track to consider hiring him.
