  1. Rounding up on the 16.5 to 17 to be conservative. 5 years 150 million dollars. (90 million guaranteed) Case closed. https://www.pewterreport.com/all-22-film-review-bucs-qb-jameis-winstons-30-ints/
  2. Rays awarded the 2019 AL Championship. Ok that latter part did not happen. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/28476780/astros-jeff-luhnow-aj-hinch-fired-sign-stealing

    What a stupid article

    I am upset that Alex Karras made the Hall of Fame. Alex was on a show called Webster. Webster is the last name of the Bucs linebacker that did not get deep enough on the Jerry Rice TD pass. Webster's coverage mistake was pointed out by the 49ers GM John Lynch so I do not want him in the Super Bowl. Makes perfect sense for a convoluted logic column.

    The worst good news is the Bucs TE O.J. Howard is rated as the highest rated TE blocker by Pro Football Focus. It is like having Sandy Koufax as a pitcher but using him as a specialist against left handed hitters.
  5. Good trolling is saying something plausible but not really mean it. Right now if the Bucs want to keep Winston the franchise or transition tag is shorter and cheaper without gambling on a long term commitment such as the 5 year 150 million dollar contract with 90 million guarantee. The problem is no one is available that does not have their own set of fleas. Mariota has the ball security down but he is a sack machine and his turnovers are many three and outs. You would have to gamble that the talent at WR is so good that this would not be an issue anymore. He would learn how to climb the pocket and avoid sacks. Bridgewater is accurate, smart but he is limited in the throws he can make. The positive is he knows his limitations. He is more dependent on a good running game. Cam Newton is an injury risk. Even if he were judged to be healthy, his game is only good when you add running to it. And the running is what makes him vulnerable to injury. Admittedly I hate the guy. It is not the Donovan McNabb hatred where I hated the guy for beating the Bucs up. I detest Cam and his Huggy Bear costumes and the circus his press conferences are. Carolina is probably loathe to send him to a division rival unless the Bucs over pay for him. Andy Dalton as a Buc is a big old Yuc! I rather start Ryan Griffith over him before I would hand the reins to him. Dalton is better than Blaine Gabbert. Jerry Golsteyn might be better than Blaine Gabbert.

    Not that Pro Football Focus means much but they rated Jamal Dean as the best rookie corner in the NFL. No one was even a close second. They did that even though his first start against Seattle in Week 9 they acknowledge was a disaster. His grades were off the charts given how late he came in the season to start.
  7. Alex Karras is good. Mongo is good. NFL Hall of Fame is good. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/28488678/paul-tagliabue-steve-sabol-selected-pro-football-hall-fame-centennial-class
  8. I guess PETA's objection to Alex Karras slugging the horse in Blazing Saddles forced him to make the HOF by the Veterans Committee
  9. One of the worst games I have seen Joe Burrow play all season!
  10. Any comments on the Astros GM and GM manager being fired over sign stealing.
  11. I was not joking when I said it was one of the worst games he had all season. I thought Clemson and Georgia played him better than any of the teams he played against this year but he still tore them apart. I think the Amoeba defense where you lined up a lot of the guys in the box but vary the number of people you send in a pass rush gave him the most trouble.
  12. They will handle ethicmetrics for the Patriots. Belichick's equivalent of analytics for ethical behavior. It is published in a book but you have to steal it online to pass the test in using it.
  13. Trolling comments on typo mistakes don't count
  14. Since he was the mastermind of the Astros system and then did with the Red Soxs in 2018, it is hard to see how he survives
  15. Any comments on the Houston Astros GM and manager being fired over sign stealing. It is amazing since sign stealing or catching a pitcher tipping his pitches without using high tech cameras is legal in baseball.

    41 straight points by KC. 6 straight TD drives with one missed extra point. KC 41-24. Texans had a 24 point lead and lost by 20.

    ESPN reports this is the first a NFL team has been ahead 24-0 and blew the lead before halftime.

    Blowing a 24-0 lead before half is incredible. Good god the Texans may get something back before half. They will try a FG. No good.

    This referee ruling on instant replay is going to be critical. It is extremely close. 28-24 or a chip shot FG to tie the game.

    A third TD. It is now 24-21. They could wipe out this lead before halftime.

    That FG on 4th and a foot seemed to be a safe call but KC has struck back with 2 TDs. Almost reminds of the Bucs and KC in 2008 regular season. Even sparked by a kickoff return. Now a fumble by Houston.

    21-0 after the fumbled punt. Right now the 5th seed Buffalo so far has played better than the top 3 seeds in the AFC even though they lost in OT. Not sure Buffalo could have jumped 21-0 on KC but a 5th seed against a 6th seed in a conference Championship game has never happened. I think Arizona with Warner (4th seed) played the Eagles as a 6th seed in 2008.

    The top seeds in the AFC are in trouble. Texans up 14-0 on KC and the game has hardly started. Could see a home team 4 seed playing a sixth seed Titans in the AFC Championship.

    It certainly does not look like the Ravens. I thought the Titans could play the Ravens tough but they are blowing them out.
  25. Derrick Henry could be out next QB. Right now he is out performing Lamar Jackson.
