    SBLII: Patriots vs. Eagles, the Build-Up

    Are we not counting fake spike plays? But otherwise that’s a fantastic point and I’d love to win a turnover battle for the first time in a really long time... hopefully they’re due indeed.

    Leap and a Flag Will Appear: NFL Bans Leaping to Block FGs and PATs

    Does anyone know if Shea McClellin's leap/block against J Tucker and the Ravens on the 12.5.2016 Monday night game will go down as the last successful one ever? Or were there any in the last 4 weeks of the reg season? I don't remember any in the playoffs other than the one they miscalled in...

    Roger the Dodger Press Conference Game Thread

    I know he was there and sat in the stands during the 2015 Ravens playoff game, but I don't remember Goodell being physically at Foxboro for the Pats-Colts game. We know Vincent, Kensil and the guys stealing K balls were there in Foxboro that night but I thought I had a memory of him RG at the...

    No more homefield advantage decided by the ASG?

    Always thought a 3 point system would work best and give all star game some relevance as well as late season games 1 pt to league whose World Series representative has best record. 1 pt to league with best record in inter league games that year 1 pt to league who is all star game winner If...

    Belichick and the new KO rule

    If they really wanted to lower kickoff numbers they should have made it 5 yards the other way and touchback at the 15. Teams would be doing everything to draft guys to boot it out of the end zone. I always felt like punt returns are more dangerous w blind side hits and people getting...

    The Pats Injury Watch: Collins & Jones

    From the stands I was 99% certain that Chandler Jones returned to the game and was in for the onside kick , lined up all the way on the right near the Pats bench but it was across the field so I'm not 100% positive. Heard about the injury after the game (which I didn't notice during last KC...

    Sons, Sam, and Horn, L.L.P.: Brady Case LEGAL ISSUES Only

    Can someone refresh my memory...despite that transcript didn't Kessler raise the notice issue in his post-hearing brief before Goodell's (most recent, if you count the Vincent as Goodell's) decision? I don't think you've waived it with one line during a transcript passage if you raise it...

    The Game Ball Thread: Wk 7 vs Jets

    The timing to the Dobson catch happening really early in the 3rd q was key to it not being challenged. Bowles had already used 1 challenge in 1st half and maybe he was leery of burning a possible last challenge that he might need later. Especially when it wasn't obvious live or revealed during...

    SportsCenter and OTL bringing back Spygate (live, 9AM)

    Once they could make some half adjustments, the Panthers moved the ball at will so much in the second half that they even tied a record for points in the third quarter of a Super Bowl. Which was zero points.

    Wasn't it "Down by way of the Pay...dro"?

    Sons, Sam, and Horn, L.L.P.: Brady Case LEGAL ISSUES Only

    One thing that came up yesterday that I can't figure out w my lawyer brain - did the NFL attorney yesterday step in it by responding to the "how did you get to 4 games" line of inquiry from Berman with a comment that some owners wanted 8? I know the CBA is slanted in favor of the league but...

    Wade Boggs - What did we have there?

    All true. The game 6 Alcs hit also followed an amazing foul off a 2strike pitch after the ump didn't grant him a late timeout request against Lieber and he had to quickswing at it. Also in the next Schilling start in game 2 of the WS, Varitek hit a 2 out 2 run-triple in the first for a 2 run...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    Upon rereading it a second time, the reference to the Packers equipment guy suggests it involved the other side. Would love to see that rumor fleshed out a bit more tho....

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    So I did a Google search of "deflate weight loss" with no further interior quotes on the search, and the first thing that pops up on page 2 (after all the search results for deflategate links on page 1 &2) is this magazine article that uses it twice...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    The fact that the wells report says that Brady claimed to "not know McNally's name" as opposed to "not know McNally" is one of the things that gets me about the tone. Yet they use that "he claimed not to know McNally" as one of the fundamental points for its generally aware conclusion. Later...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    The report has a reference to three interviews of McNally by NFL security...I assumed Wells team got one interview separately. So it's Wells request for their 2nd and 5th overall

    March College Hoops Thread

    The so called best player in the Ivy League for Yale turned in a dud of a game. In addition to some horrible turnovers, he made the worst decision instinctive play to go from defending a 1 OT lead and making Dart. Go full 94 ft w 2.3 secs left, to knocking air ball heading out of bounds out...
