    Brady is a bad seed. Not literally a Saint like Jameis Winston.

    I'm not worried about COVID-19.  I just swallowed a handful of hydroxychloroquine, washed it down with bleach, and shoved a UV lamp up my ass.  I have it on good authority that these are all effective preventive measures - just can't remember if I heard it from Trump or Fauci.

    rook got a reaction from Tundra in I read the Glazers 15 year history of Manchester United   
    This was Joel Glazer's baby although Malcolm was probably involved in the lreeraged buyout. The Glazers do not have the wealth of many of the NFL owners, the oil rich states, and the world wide wealth of the big money in the Orient, the Bezos and billionaires like Bloomberg or Buffet. They bought Manchester U with a fraction of their own money and basically financed the deal with debt that was at a credit card rate. The people who financed the Glazers deal made a fortune. The Glazers still have 630 million pounds or Euros of debt but the book value if 3.7 billion pounds or Euros. They won't sell for less than 5 billion and may demand 7 billion. They have preferred shares that give 78% of the team.stock. Their is no chance of a hostile take over without make them incredibly wealthy. It was an insane and genius way to finance the deal that ironically occurred in an economy far more regulated than the United States. Someone with more money could have done this easily without crazy financing and would have made even more money than the Glazers.

    Bills grab Fromm. I would rather draft a dedicated long snapper than Fromm.

    I like the WR from Minnesota Tyler Johnson. Decent pick for Round 5. Decent size and productive.

    I have a great Hugh Green joke for you from John McKay..
    Question to Coach McKay- I know you like how Hugh Green played as a rookie but what do you think his biggest weakness as a rookie player?
    Coach McKay- That he was not born as an identical twin.

    Hugh Green fell to the Bucs as he was considered one inch too short as LB in 1981.
    In 1982, we fell in love with a Bethune Cookman Player who was a  great physical specimen who could not play football in Booker Reese. He did not even know how to line up in a pro stance.

    Wirfs and Winfield have something in common. They both won a bowl game at RJS. Bucs did not have to leave town to scout them. (Auman).

    Greg Auman has a Twitter post on why the Bucs gave up a pick to make sure they got Wirfs.
    A year ago, Bucs had their eyes on Cody Ford in second round at 39, and Bills traded ahead of them and grabbed him at 38. So very understandable, given same position with Wirfs last night, that Licht pays a small price to make sure it doesn't happen again. Eliminates the risk.
    From the Bills OTA
    Ford was drafted as an OG by the Bills but he ended up playing OT as their starting RT was hurt. He is still starting at RT but if the Bills get their injured RT back, they could move him inside at OG which was the plan when they drafted him.

    Are we going trade OJ Howard to get a 4th back? I am not sure that would be a good move unless Howard is completely lost.

    Why not have two TEs that can block? Auclair is a blocking TE only because he is better than Brate. Howard is better than Auclair in blocking and receiving. Auclair is good in that he is cheaper than Howard. Brate is the most expensive with a very limited skill set.

    rook got a reaction from Tundra in Classic watch   
    In the 1999-2000 NFL playoff game, my seat was great but it was near one Skins  Radio station jerk who was mocking us as the Skins led much of the game. After Lynch's pick, Alstott's TD electrified the crowd. Sapp recovered a fumble from Brad Johnson caused by Steve White's sack. Dunn recovered Shaun King's fumble. Alstott converted a 4th and 1. Then Shaun King threw the game winning TD to John Davis. The Redskins had one last drive. they got within FG range on 4th and 3. It was a 51 yarder but the kicker had made a 49 yard FG earlier. The Skins Radio guy was taunting the Bucs fans as he was sure the kick was going to be made.
    Then Dan Turk, an old Bucs draft pick, was the Skins long snapper. He made a bad snap that bounced to Brad Johnson. None of the Skins people broke right away so Brad was holding the ball forever. Then one of the Bucs safeties came in and sacked him. Brad tried to throw the ball but he was ruled in the grasp before he threw the ball. Some Skins fans thought there was pass interference but Brad had already been sacked. The radio jerk had to be escorted out of the stadium for his own safety although Bucs fans were more in a verbal taunting mood than violent.
    One other group of jerks were in the stadium were 3 Bucs fans that drank beer. Always getting up during a play blocking the view of the game. They tried to get up on the game deciding  FG kick. Fans next to them grabbed them and sat them down. One guy I remember saying to the group you guys are going to wait after the kick to get up even if you have to pee in your pants.
