    2020 Pats: General/Non-QB Off-Season Discussion

    He was always a solid, steady contributor for years until he tore his knee up in the 2019 preseason. Worth a flyer for cheap money, I suppose, but I'm not sure where he fits. He doesn't play special teams either. My guess is they just see the track record of production floating out there on the...

    Deadspin is Burning

    Sounds like things are going great over at G/O Media HQ. They just did a surprise Friday firing of over half of their video staff. GMG Union was obviously not pleased: View:

    8/4 Celtics vs. Heat

    I like this team so much.

    Covid and MLB

    I wasn't always sure how to properly weigh the incompetence of MLB when considering the possibility of the season shutting down prematurely. Would it make it more likely they shut everything down, because they clearly have no idea what they're doing and have no plan besides, "we'll make it up as...

    07/31 vs. Bucks aka Starting The Short Road to #18

    The man is unguardable.

    Always a good sign when the announcers all contradict each other.

    Fought all the way back. Let's see what they got from here.

    Celts look a little off just about everywhere.

    Covid and MLB

    Every time I think about the possibly of playing organized American football, all I can think of is this (though I can no longer find the actual video clip anywhere; seems like the NFL did a bang up job scrubbing its existence off of the internet)...

    2020 Celtics Scrimmage Thread

    Yes and no. It's easier in terms of players and coaches on your team being able to hear you. The flipside is that your opponent can hear everything you're saying as well, which can make communication more complicated. I thought this was an interesting quote from Nick Nurse, from a recent...

    COVID-19 and the Red Sox

    Guerin Austin said during the pre-season game last night that it was the worst he's ever felt and the sickest he's ever been. IIRC, at one point she said he had every symptom. It sounded like it hit him hard. Seems like this is a bad idea, but that hasn't stopped us yet.

    Which Rookie Are You Most Excited About Going Into Camp (also can discuss rookies here)

    This was my thinking too. I really wanted to say Duggar but there's a chance he's just a special teams guy that doesn't really see a lot snaps on D. Uche could at least be a situational pass rusher, if nothing else, pretty much right off the bat.

    Covid and MLB

    Just like any other injury during the season. That's certainly an approach. Can't wait for the first NFL injury report that says: "Out: COVID-19."
