    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy!

    If SF thought Jimmy G was too valuable to trade within the conference, they wouldn't have traded up to draft his immediate successor.

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    They're not winning a title this year, and Danny knows this. But if they don't try to win as many games as possible, and therefore give minutes to the players who are playing the best right now, that would have negative consequences long-term as well. It's not a bad thing for young players' long...

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    So was AD. And Paul George. And James Harden. All three were traded for a few good but not great young players and all the first round picks and swaps for the rest of the decade. Because the players colluded to narrow the field down to one and only one team. That's what the Celtics have to hope...

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    If the Celtics are going to trade multiple first round picks, I'd rather they do what good teams do and wait for an All-NBA player to demand a trade and offer pennies on the dollar. I'm thinking of Beal or Towns.

    "Spot and Choose": New Proposal for Overtime Rules

    Teams already stall at the end of tie games to make sure they kick the go-ahead field goal with no time remaining. Seems like the same thing to me.

    "Spot and Choose": New Proposal for Overtime Rules

    Only if the game is tied and the team with the ball is well out of field goal range. I won't miss hail marys at the ends of games.

    "Spot and Choose": New Proposal for Overtime Rules

    To me, the best solution is the easiest one. If the score is tied after the end of the fourth quarter, keep playing the fourth quarter until someone scores. The team with the ball keeps the ball at the same field position, down and distance.

    Cade to Black: 2021 NBA Draft Thread

    If he's suffering from Long Covid, affecting his endurance, maybe he should be resting his lungs to prevent permanent damage. We just don't know enough about the long term effects of this disease.

    Pats QB Options

    Vegas has the 49ers as +1500 to win next year's Super Bowl, which only makes sense if they know they're getting Watson.

    Pats QB Options

    Having an elite QB and no talent around him is not much better than not having an elite QB. Houston had Watson this year and won 4 games, two of which were against the Jaguars.

    Pats QB Options

    That's great in a vacuum, but you also have to consider the acquisition cost. Goff and JG are mediocre at best but would cost almost nothing to get. The Patriots have lots of holes to fill and can't afford to give up multiple picks to get a top notch QB. They're going to have to find a diamond...

    Following the 2020 NBA Draft Class

    I don't think Sacramento was ever going to trade that pick, but would the Spurs or Suns have traded pick 11 or 10? There's a good chance the players they wanted would have been available at 14, and they could have picked up another pick.

    Following the 2020 NBA Draft Class

    I wonder how hard Danny was trying to trade up to get him as he skid down the board, and what teams were asking for. I remember so many of us wanting the Celtics to find a way to draft him. Would you trade Nesmith and PP for him right now? I would.

    Mets Behaving Badly

    We men have been told through movies and TV shows our whole lives that women dig persistence. If you want a woman enough, all you have to do is keep declaring your love for her over and over, and never take no for an answer, and eventually she will give in and give you a chance and fall in love...
