    Tom Brady is retiring

    He truly sounds like he's done. I hope for his sake he sticks to his retirement plan this time; taking sacks and hits is not good for one's long term health, and becomes less good as time goes on. We may see QB's with better peaks (Mahomes comes to mind). But I doubt we will see another QB...

    Payton Pritchard: Season Savior

    Not sure how you get the above from my post, but whatever.... What I do know is that for a rookie scale player like Pritchard, his upcoming RFA is his big chance to get paid. Waiting too long for the big payday poses obvious risks to PP. And collecting the counting stats, especially pointz...

    Your Most Dreaded SB Match-Up

    Steelers-Cowboys is my least ideal 2 team matchup; I hate everything about the 1970's anyway. After that, it's any matchup involving the Jets or Dolphins or Ravens from the AFC. And other than Dallas, none of the NFC teams bother me enough to care too strongly.

    Discussion: the NBA should be more like FIBA

    I would assume that those seats would be replaced by "new" courtside seats, seats that are now 3 or 4 rows back and so are quite a bit cheaper. Still, any real or perceived loss of gate revenue will be an issue for the owners that will need to be addressed before any proposal for widening the...

    Payton Pritchard: Season Savior

    Pritchard seems to be hoping to have a more substantial role on the team after this season. So, he wants to stay for this season (a ring would be nice), but next season he wants playing time, which makes sense given that he would be in RFA in the summer of 2024 and wants to get paid. My...

    Bill Belichick and his decision making: Have we learned anything?

    I think far more people on this thread are explaining the thought process behind Belichick's decision making rather than defending the actual decision. You may disagree with the decision itself and the reasons behind it (nearly all of us do), but there was a thought process that went well...

    Bill Belichick and his decision making: Have we learned anything?

    This thread was never about the media “narrative” of “hubris and arrogance”. It’s fine if you want to discuss that topic, but it is of zero interest to me. The topic was around Belichick’s decision making, which you criticized and when challenged you moved the goalposts again and brought up...

    Bill Belichick and his decision making: Have we learned anything?

    What is it called when Belichick signs an undrafted free agent CB from West Alabama and inserts him as a rookie into a goal line situation in the waning minutes of the Super Bowl? And why would other NFL coaches or GMs care if Belichick lends his face to a video game or subscribes to a...

    Bill Belichick and his decision making: Have we learned anything?

    There is literally zero evidence of this.

    NFL Playoffs - Championship Round

    I'm not sure if the question being asked in the Mahomes vs Brady comparison is peak or career. Looking at career accomplishments, the number of Lombardi's absolutely has to be in the discussion as a criterion. Not the only one, but a factor nonetheless, especially given that one of them...

    Joe Mazzulla, come on down.

    Not sure I follow these last few posts, but I do think there is a reasonable debate to be had as to whether Mazzulla should try harder to find the opportunity to sit Tatum down for 2-3 minutes sometime in the 2nd half of close games. At the very least, I do hope he's at least having that...

    2022-2023 General Celtics thread

    In some respects, they remind me of the West's poor man's version of the Sixers or Nets. Their 2 stars make them a difficult matchup on any given night, and they have complementary pieces that can win a series. But it is an open question on whether they can keep up with the younger and more...

    Joe Mazzulla, come on down.

    Missing 2 starters also impacted Tatum's minutes. I assume we would all agree it makes no sense to rush Smart or RWilliams back just to give Tatum less minutes. Tatum's minutes last 6 Celtics game: 48 (OT), DNP, 38, 40, 43, 47 (OT). But I'll note that Smart missed all of the last 4 games...

    Bill O’Brien named Patriots OC

    I would be shocked if Belichick would have hired him if it was accepted that BoB does not know how to run a modern NFL offense.

    2022-2023 General Celtics thread

    Can watch the replay of the 2 FT's on nba.com. On the first one, Randle almost steps into the lane just as the ball is leaving Brown's hand, but catches himself while looking off balance. Something that is always let go, as it should be. On the second FT, Randle and Sims are both well over...

    Bill O’Brien named Patriots OC

    Maybe it's open revolt; or maybe it's comments taken out of context by frustrated players. Media is known to aggressively cut-and-paste, and statements like "I love playing for Coach, but Belichick really fucked us this season" suddenly turn into "He really f---ed us". Players openly...

    1/26 - Small Knick Energy at the Garden

    Agree. Criticizing Mazzulla for speaking encouraging and supportive words about one of the team's key stars is, IMO, deliberately going out of one's way to be unnecessarily critical. Every single star player in NBA history has missed key free throws at some point in their respective careers.
