  1. Huh, I wasn't familiar with her work. Apparently Diana Russini is worth listening to looking at.
  2. According to Diana Russini.. NESN ARTICLE Bummer. I was so hoping all the DCs on the schedule were killing themselves finding ways to change their defense to stop them.
  3. Lorenzo Neal is a hell of character. Obviously I love the Alstott like every Bucs fan from that era, but I never knew how funny Neal is. Great link. Thanks!
  4. I have no doubt BA is considering that as well, particularly given the fact that Howard wasn't traded. All three of those TEs can create a mismatch, so putting all three on the field at once should be able to get five to seven yards no matter where it is. The fact that two of those TEs can block well gives a lot of options to that formation.
  5. The current environment, the last presidential election, and the predictions of how our coastline was supposed to change in the last decade have shown us very clearly one thing above all others: Always trust the models and simulations. They're never wrong.
  6. Given the unknowns about how Gronk might hold up this season, I don't really see them making a trade.
  7. My favorite piece of the article: "Winston has size, skill, heart and a tremendous work ethic. His one drawback in a uniform was an inability to cut down on errant passes. That, as it turns out, is what New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees excels at. Winston had 30 interceptions in 626 pass attempts last year. Brees has 29 interceptions in his last 1,900 pass attempts going back nearly four full seasons." Wow, 29 in 1900 pass attempts. That's really cool. Tom Brady - 29 ints vs 2196 pass attempts. Over the last four full seasons. If you actually look at the same span for Brees, he had 32 INTS in 2076 attempts. Neither of those statistics is bad, but the fact that Romano had to cherry pick the stat to make Brees look like some perfect mentor for Winston is laughable. And to be clear, I'm not in any way advocating for a Winston on the bench scenario. I think it would've been a smart move for him at the end of the season to approach Licht hat in hand and see what he could work out for a contract, but that's me. The 30 mil/year ask blew up in his face and made him look stupid as shit, and that probably resulted in a few less offers as well. Moving to a division rival may have been his only choice, but if he turned down other offers to join a division rival, kid needs to eat a bowl of dicks. Ton of talent and a very low awareness of his own responsibility. I hate that shit.
  8. Eason to the Colts. I think Anthony Gordon is a guy worth a late pick.
  9. Hope RoJo steps it up.
  10. After KC scooped Helaire-Edwards, I’m worried about the probable RB run at the top of the 2nd.
  11. I’m good with it. I wanted them to get a top guy to improve the line. He’s fast, strong and nasty, he just needs some technical improvement. Should be fun to watch.
  12. It's a business decision. The Glazers want their team to seem even more premier. They went and got their new QB his favorite target, even though he's only going to play half the season if they are lucky. You guys seriously think it has anything to do with how well Gronk can actually play right now?
  13. It really doesn't matter what your stat sheet says. Fact is, Brate is solid, but he's never been a flat out game changer. I doubt Gronkowski is going to be the player he was four or five years ago, but he's still going to create far greater concern for defenses than Brate does, which opens opportunities. Personally, I'd have rather they stuck with Howard and Brate. Not because I think the pair is much better, but because I thought it had better potential over time. As it is, this season defenses are going to worry more. Even more fans are going to pack the stadium than they would've with just Brady, because for some reason people have some sort of crazy love for the Brady/Gronk thing. No idea why. Ever seen entire sections with Brate jerseys? Me neither. Gronk was almost as popular as the GOAT for Massholes. Point is, the effect of Gronk is going to make a bigger impact that Brate, regardless of on field statistics. As long as he's actually healthy and on the field, anyway.
