611 Pro Bowl
  1. It will be nice to see the draft in a small room

    As long as they can do it safely and find a way to make it a compelling product, I LOVE that the draft is moving forward as scheduled. Normally I think the draft is kinda ridiculous and drawn out at this point (was better when it was just over the weekend), but with NOTHING else sports related to compete with, I think the NFL should take full advantage of this, and just lean all the way into spreading it out. Make it the better part of a week for all I care. Split up the first round into two nights maybe. Make it 5 nights: 1st half of first round, 2nd half of first round, 2nd round, 3rd/4th, 5th/6th/7th round. Really go deep into highlights, examining rosters, how the picks fit in, analysis, rumors, whatever. Seriously, the stuff that would normally annoy me, I'd be totally okay with at this point, and it would be a friggin' coup for the NFL since they would have all eyeballs.
  2. I see no reason why the season won't start on time as long as there are no crowds, and the players on the field maintain the recommended 6 feet away from each other at all times.
  3. NFC South

    I guess I'm judging that against a healthy Cam Newton though. Is that still an improvement when you look at it that way?
  4. NFC South

    Not saying they won't end up being better, but how have the Panthers improved? At least on paper?
  5. How does Brady's Buccaneers do this season?

    No not exactly.
  6. Rams new logo unveiled

    It's whatever I guess. But honestly, has the majority of people ever liked any new logo of anything at any point in time? Everybody always hates every new or redesigned logo/uniform. And then if you have it for a decade and change it, people complain about the new one.
  7. My Comeback Player of the Year Candidates

    Marcus Mariota? ComeBACK?
  8. Notable Stats and Observations

    Okay, so I can't find 2019 numbers, but in looking at what Football Outsiders has for dropped interception numbers from 2018 and 2017, it seems that uh...20 dropped interceptions compared to 16 interceptions is...uh...I believe the official term would be, "a dong-load".
  9. Notable Stats and Observations

    That seems like a lot, and believe me, I'm all for anything that is further proof that Jared Goff is, on balance, an entirely ordinary quarterback, but...I'm curious about how this compares to the rates of dropped interceptions for all other quarterbacks? If every quarterback tends to have about that ratio of potential interceptions dropped, then it doesn't really say much about Goff. Off the top of my head, having more potential interceptions that were dropped, than actual interceptions thrown, seems crazy. I feel like it should be more around 50%. But again, I don't know the actual statistics so I can't really say.
  10. Apex-level wide receivers are fun, and certainly help to a degree, but I'm more interested in whether or not my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th receivers can beat the opponent's 2nd, 3rd, and 4th coverage options.
  11. Emmanuel Sanders Signs with Saints

    Love Manny. Good pickup for the Saints.
  12. Everything Free Agency (Rumors, notes and news)

    Their defense was soft up front, and feasted on a crap-*** first half of the schedule. They built up their reputation against bad teams and bad quarterbacks. Once real teams played them, they were exposed. They weren't a BAD defense. They were good, but not great. But even so, that's the 2019 Patriots. The statement seemed to intimate that the Titans win somehow exposed something deeper or more wide-reaching in Belichick and his operation, rather than just that singular team.
  13. Everything Free Agency (Rumors, notes and news)

    Haha! What the hell are you talking about. Look, I was rooting for the Titans, and last year's Patriots team had a ton of flaws. But I don't have what you mean by that last statement, as if the TItans win had to do with anything beyond a fatally flawed opponent, that plenty of other teams got the better of.
  14. Oh, okay. Hot new winning trend in the NFL: Have Patrick Mahomes.
  15. Everything Free Agency (Rumors, notes and news)

    Which is ironic, because I bet COVID-19 is one of the milder diseases or infections that he's passed around.
