  1. They've been doing everything right the last couple years, or so. I'm pretty bullish on their future with Flores and their new approach at roster building.
  2. While Byrd has been a pleasant surprise, we clearly need another WR. I'm sure they'll be hesitant to make a trade for one after the Sanu debacle, but I'd like to see another premium pick spent on one in next year's draft. It's looking like another loaded WR class.
  3. I was referring to one specific run, where he had SO much room to the right, didn't bounce it outside and ran into the OL's back. I'm nitpicking here; overall I was pleasantly surprised with his debut.
  4. Agreed. I hope they're working out an extension with Cam as we speak. Sign Cam to like a 4-year deal, and keep adding play makers around him. Don't overthink this.
  5. Maybe it's just me, but he looks mentally checked out. I could be projecting this onto him, but he doesn't look like his usual self. I hate to be "this guy" but the fact that he wasn't elected as a captain, no Brady, the "happily miserable comment", body language....something seems off with him. Can you be frustrated but ok with last night's loss? Because that's how I feel. Refs: again, I'm not one to typically complain about the refs, but come on. The roughness call after Mahomes flop job? Absolute joke to call that- especially after you picked up the flag on one earlier. The BS PI call. The blowing strip sack play dead. Just inexcusable. I've said this 100 times and I'll continue to bang this drum: LET THE PLAY PLAY OUT. Defense was outstanding. The narrative from the broadcast all night -which was as about as bad as the refs- was that Reid and Co. were so smart and creative with all their pre-snap motion. However, the narrative should have been about the defense and Belichick's game plan: -They weren't even biting on any of the pre-snap motion. -They took away everything deep. Hill was mostly held in check. -They dared (smartly so) the Chiefs to run by primarily rushing three guys and dropping 8 into coverage. -They roughed up Kelce at the line and he was largely a non-factor. Side note: last night was a perfect example of why I refuse to hold Kelce in prime Gronk (and now Kittle) territory. Belichick shows he's can be erased in games. That never happened with a healthy Gronk or Kittle now. -Winovich is a monster. The guy is 2nd in the NFL in win rates and has an endless motor. -Guy will never get the appreciation he deserves, but he's a damn good football player. -Wise is randomly emerging as a player? I had pretty much all but written him off but he seems like hes improved. -More Dugger please. Some comments about the offense: -Lack of talent/play makers is really highlighted without Newton. We really need one more pass catcher, at a minimum. Maybe White's return helps, but I think they really need one more guy. -Great debut from Harris. Looks like he has a little more breakaway speed than Michel. Vision needs some improvement. -I Know Asiasi is a rookie TE, so it's an uphill battle being 1) the hardest position to learn/grow in an NFL offense and 2) shortened camp/no pre-season makes this a bigger task, but how can't this guy give them more than what Izzo is giving them? -Everyone (including myself) was worried how the line would hold up with no Scar. We'll, they've been outstanding so far. Shuffling guys around, missing two starters last night, and they don't miss a beat. -Onwenu looks like a damn find in the 6th round by the Patriots. Suck on that one, BiLl BeLiCHicK CaNt DrAFt crowd. Recover soon, Cam.
  6. Hell yeah man- keep riding that momentum train. So many people probably trended the other way during this, so you should be proud.
  7. Injuries have followed him everywhere dating back to high school. Kind of baffling looking back on it that BB spent a first round pick on him; but I liked the pick at the time so this is a little bit of hindsight bias on my end.
  8. I love the deal based on the fact that it's a low risk, high upside signing at very little cost. My main concern is Cam's health (duh) and his weaponry. Sanu's coming off an injury, Edelman is getting up there, rookie tight ends, etc. Seems like they're putting a lot of eggs in the N'Keal Harry basket again, which is a little concerning. At least he's going to have a strong OL group with continuity. Side note: having been posting much because work's been so busy, but I hope everyone's staying safe and well.

  10. Yeah I bought Spirit and Delta which have been great so far, fingers crossed. Two non-airline stocks I got in early on that I'm happy with are PENN and DKNG which I'm obviously excited about. I think DKNG has some serious potential.
  11. Bump. Anyone getting in on these airline stocks?
  12. You've said this for years and they continued to have success.
  13. I'm sure Diggs will have no problem with Allen and his inaccuracy. That is quite the haul for the Vikings; makes BOB look like even more of a moron (if that was even possible).
