    Tom Wilson

    There can be no mention of a Bruins-North Stars fight without acknowledging Wensink challenging the ENTIRE North Stars bench in 1977:

    NFL Draft Rd.1: Discussion, Rumors, Rumblings, Spoilers Gamethread

    I think that pretty much describes the current QB depth chart.

    Cox sort of cherry picked the screen shots. He omitted this one: Tavon Wilson enjoyed New England. 'nuf said.

    Patrick Chung to retire

    I always think of this game by Chung. Blocked a punt, a field goal, and a pick 6 vs. Phins in week 4 of 2010: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMpJbLaD5eI

    Pats Trades for OL Trent Brown

    I'm torn on keeping Cannon. Wynn, Brown, and Cannon are all very good, when they play. They've averaged 10.3 games/season combined for their careers. Brown has played more than 11 games nust 2x in six years, Wynn has played 18 total games in 3 years, and Cannon hasn't played a full season since...

    The cost of youth athletics

    For my family this is pretty much it; we had our kids in under 5 soccer, swimming lessons, learned to ride bikes at 5 and the biggest take away is giving them the confidence and physical ability to try whatever sport that comes up. And even through my kids likely won't make a career out of their...

    The cost of youth athletics

    For our kids the path was showing promise in basic kids classes in their respective sports. Our rock climber started going to the gym around 7 years old because he was always climbing things like trees, basketball hoops, etc. He started going to some Friday night climbing and games things. They...

    The cost of youth athletics

    I live in the DC area, so a lot of factors are amplified; cost, intensity, parental jackassery. I have three kids, my oldest (14) is a competitive rock climber and my youngest (7) recently was invited to try out for and join an acrobatic gymnastics team. My middle kid doesn't care for structured...

    What SB do you want to see and why?

    I honestly can't lump Buffalo in with "NY" teams, even though it's technically true. They're more Canadian than NYC. I am torn between Buffalo and TB12. Honestly, both the team and the city of Buffalo deserve a championship. The team drafted well and finally did a good job team building and the...

    NFL In-season News and Transactions

    Ugh, sounds like someone pining for the "good old days". I don't like to generalize about people without meeting them/hearing about them, but his holier than thou "character counts" shtick rings a bit hollow when he bad mouths his employer, leaves, comes back for a ceremony, eats from the hand...

    Greatest not famous athlete you ever saw

    Jerry Auzmah. I competed against him in track in high school. He was insanely fast, built like a pro when he was in HS. His team, Saint Peter-Marian, was horrendous, he was the only person who placed in the top 3 in any event for SPM at the meet, winning the 100 (he had a bad start on my schools...

    2020 Pats: Belichick Breakdowns & Beatdowns

    Coming here to post the same thing. He got beat twice, but made the right play both times. Too bad he's 225 lbs, that's pretty light for a BB linebacker. Heck, he's not that much bigger than Dugger.

    2020 Football Team: A Capital Scandal

    Yeah, the latest instances of harassment are a complete non-shocker. About 5-6 years ago I would go to at least one game a year at FedEx in the luxury boxes with a friend who's company had one of the largest boxes aside from Snyder and FedEx. There were cheerleaders who were sent to spend time...

    2020 Pats: You Cam Go Your Own Way

    Yeah, BB really hates it when people are pissy with the media after a loss.

    2020 Pats: You Cam Go Your Own Way

    In Stidham/Newton vs. Stidham/Hoyer debate, I also consider the playing styles and offensive packages. Stidham and Newton have a much similar physical styles than Stidham/Hoyer, so there is a lot less change in package if they switch QB mid-stream. Also, Newton might have more to contribute in...

    Gone Brady Gone

    Brady continues to be the poster boy for "He might be an asshole, but he's our asshole." A lot of his shit, like the pseudoscience BS, <tantrums>"competitiveness"</tantrums>, etc, was easy to overlook when he was winning NEP championships, but now that he is in TB it's as easy to not overlook...

    What do the Pats do at 23?

    I can see them taking at least one player on each side of the line. They obviously need some edge help, but expecting a rookie to come in a play the 5 technique well is asking a lot of a player not named Richard Seymour. I wonder if they stock up on OL and TE to help protect Stidhum, strengthen...

    What do the Pats do at 23?

    Since 2000 BB has used the Pat's first pick on an offensive or defensive lineman first 11 times and a linebacker 2 times. Three of the drafts where the Pat's top pick went to a position other than a front-7 or o-line gets, a lineman has gone with their second pick. In the 4 years where no...
