    2020 Pats: 2020 Roster & Beyond (non-QB edition)

    As other posters noted, the TB I'm referring to is the one who spent most of last season yelling at his receivers and/or not throwing them to them either by choice or not. I love TB12 as much as anyone but his once-stated belief that his favorite receiver was "the one who was open" was not the...

    2020 Pats: 2020 Roster & Beyond (non-QB edition)

    I would add that the RB core is incredibly deep, with nice complementary skill sets. This is likely a bit of wish-casting, but I do wonder if Brady's departure will have a bit of Ewing Theory about it. I don't think TB12 was the best QB in terms of making those around him better, either on the...

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA "on track" to resume season at WDW

    Assuming this plan goes thru, which teams/players are helped the most? Presumably injured players who had tons of time to rest will be helped. But what, if any, impact will no fans have? Does this hurt the top seeds more as they lose any home-court advantage? Has there been any discussion...

    Pats sign Patrick Chung to a 2-year extension

    I'm a bit shocked by this. I figured he was a possible camp cut due to too many injuries, declining performance, and increasing cap hit. Plus one of their high draft picks and one of their big FA signings play his position.

    2020 NFL: Offseason News and Notes

    Here's what I don't like about the rule: moving a team's draft pick up X number of slots (anything less than 32), means that it penalizes the X number of teams that get jumped past, while having no effect on anyone else. If anything, the reward should be like other comp picks, added at the end...

    Tom Yawkey I used to think of him as a kindly old grandfather type. Then I grew up.

    Patriots HOF Finalists

    But you're forgetting two key stats for the voting masses: Receptions: Vrabel - 9 Hightower - 0 Touchdowns: Vrabel - 9 Hightower - 0

    Patriots HOF Finalists

    We're not talking about logic or the votes of the intelligentia like BBTL, but thousands of Joe SixPacks and Bennys from Burger King.

    Patriots HOF Finalists

    I vote no on Mayo. He has neither peak nor longevity to warrant it, and no SB rings to bolster.

    Patriots HOF Finalists

    Notable absence who is for sure a Patriot HOF and might get into consideration as the first of his kind to make Canton: Matthew Slater. I think Solder has no shot, nor should Hightower. But Mankins should be as he is arguably no worse than 3rd best OLineman in Patriot history (after Hannah...

    Ideal NFL Alignment

    To be honest, that last division was tough. I had Dallas, Washington, Seattle and Carolina left over. Snyder and Jones are assholes, so I started with that idea. Then I had to start shifting some oddballs around to make it fit. It wasn’t perfect, but what is?!

    Ideal NFL Alignment

    As long as we are indulging in silly fantasy, how about some thematic divisions: No Place Like Dome: Atlanta Arizona New Orleans Detroit Holy Shit It's Cold: Minnesota Green Bay Chicago Denver Holy Shit It's Hot: Jax Miami Tampa Las Vegas Pacific Coast: LA Rams LA Chargers San Fran Seattle...

    Need cheap webcams and lots of them

    Important tip as you are sourcing these: Don't assume that if you find 10 from one place and 10 from another that you have 20. Oftentimes they are both using the same source so they are counting the same 10 objects.
