Youtube censorship took it down.. MetaCafe instead? If it goes down again, whats a damnsite that allows you to post whatever?
I heard or read something similar too, but don't know where. I think it was someone saying that Monday mornings BB has a meeting where he does a highlight reel of everyone's fuck ups from the game before (missed blocks, bad tackling, dropped passes, etc), and that Brady is never exempt from it.
Like it doesn't matter if Brady threw for 400 yards and 4 TDs and 1 INT, he'll show film of that one interception and just say like "Nice throw Tom. That cornerback sure just came out of nowhere."
Edit: I know it's almost too late for anyone to see, but this was what I was thinking of:

>When Mitchell went to college at the University of Georgia, he quickly realized he struggled with reading. He knew he needed to do something, so he started from scratch, reading children’s books and teaching himself to read better and faster. He soon developed a passion for learning and literacy that ultimately changed his life.
To be fair, you have to have a very high degree of patience to understand Bell's running game. The advantage of 77 extra attempts is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical football most of the stat line will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Bell's long term outlook, which is deftly woven into his run game- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Sun Tzu's The Art of War, for instance. The Steelers fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these stats, to realize that they’re not just numbers- they say something deep about football. As a consequence people who dislike LeVeon Bell truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the patience in Bell's run game, which itself is a cryptic reference to Sun Tzu's "if you know the enemy and yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles". I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those Manning-face simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Bell’s genius run attack unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them.
Yeah.. that is my biggest question here.
So the guy is apparently fat. And the guy apparently has a serious ankle injury.
Yet he still has the same YPC as Ezekiel Elliott and he is doing that without the home run plays
Here's the ESPN source that PFT conveniently forgot to link to.
> Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett and left tackle Bradley Sowell got into a heated dust-up Sunday that resulted in both players getting pulled from practice.
>Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the fight was the result of Sowell shoving defensive end Josh Shirley to the ground earlier in a one-on-one drill. When Bennett got a turn to face Sowell, the two players mixed it up and ended up on the ground before they were separated.
>"He's just fighting for his own a little bit," Carroll said of Bennett. "One of the young guys got knocked around, and he was standing up for him. He's got a lot of pride. He's an incredible competitor, but he's got to make sure he stays poised so he doesn't get himself in trouble. So we had a good illustration of that today."
The story is from Aqib's anecdote in this article.
Great read. Has a bunch of other great moments like:
> Kevin Faulk: "I loved when Bill would yell at Tom Brady and say, 'Hey, Tom, I could go get the quarterback at Foxborough High to do it better than that.'"
He also destroys M.Cassel:
> Matt Cassel: My rookie year, I got crushed in the back by a corner blitz against the Giants. We're playing them the next year in the last preseason game. He asks me, 'OK, Cassel, what front do they like to bring the corner blitz from?' I had looked it up the night before, anticipating it. I said, 'Coach, it's an over.' And he goes, 'Brady?' Well, you know immediately when he goes to the next guy: 'Oh, no. Oh, no.' And Brady says, 'An under.' And he goes, 'Brady's right. I don't want to have to send your mother another note that says, 'Dear Mrs. Cassel, we regret to inform you that your son got killed being a dumbass.'"
Hoodie really knows how to spark that competitive spirit in a player.

No, from what I can tell there was a 4.3 second hang time, this would put the ball at a 75 foot peak hight from Rodger's hand. The board is 90 from the turf, seems like it wouldn't have made contact with the screen in Dallas.
BUT It was REALLY close be really close, if it had a hang time of 4.5 seconds it would have made contact.

This is actually just reddit being mismanaged. They use Amazon AWS cloud for hosting; it should automatically be scaling the number of servers and load balancing on its own, depending on the traffic pressure.
In the price tier that Reddit is in (aka the major tech website price tier) Amazon even provides a dedicated team of specialists to keep the site up. The only plausible explanation is Reddit is managed completely incompetently and/or the software is written poorly.
I mean, Facebook and Twitter use cloud hosting and have way more traffic but don't get annihilated like Reddit does. There's literally no social media website out there that crashes and burns like this, aside from Reddit.

edit: just my opinion - it's not just unacceptable, it's just flatly ridiculous that a user needs to refresh 10-12 times to see any content.
Why, that isn't true at all! We said "draft" at /r/Jaguars more than we did Jaguars or either of our wonderful QB's names.
You made a similar joke with my last image set I seem to recall, which is a big part of why I re-ran the lists. I had considered stripping out QB names and team names, but that was getting tedious. Plus, my inner Bears fan vomited when I saw the word Packers in the #3 place on that version of the Bears list (behind fuck and defense, two other words I had considered removing.) I'm doing this for stats-based recreation from my stats-based job, so you'll pardon me if I'm not too eager to re-remake it :)
If you, or anyone else, wants to play around with the data beyond what this has, I have uploaded it into a .rar file.

My fiance and I have been asking ourselves that question every f%&(g week, all 3 weeks of the season. Hell, I think if you're in the end zone even an inch, you kneel; the 25 yard line is a good starting point, but every ST player wants to be the hero.
How many KR have resulted in a TD this season?
Hmmm... The average is nearly where they get it. Stop putting yourself and your teammates in harm's way and take the 25 yards.
Unless you can do what Ty did.
And welcome to another episode of "LETS TAKE REX QUOTES OUT OF CONTEXT!"
This weeks contestants, the dude that wrote this tweet and title of the post.
Alright, get ready!
His Wednesday conference call with Patriots reports got a bit testy when a reporter challenged Ryan on the idea that he is an above average coach. The exchange got a bit heated, and Ryan ended the call by saying, "I'll show you average who."
By Thursday, Ryan was laughing it all off.
"I don't even care," Ryan said. "It's like, whatever. That doesn't bother me at all. Let's face it, we're here in Buffalo, nobody likes anything in Boston."
So were the Patriots reporters just trying to get under his skin?
"Oh please. I mean, it's not like the first time," Ryan said with a laugh. "This is like seven or eight years -- it's the same every time you talk to them. So you have fun with them, going back and forth."
Wouldn't be as controversial if the beginning of that sentence was included, eh?
Edit: And here's the video of the quote in question., judge for yourself if this is getting reported in a pretty disingenuous way.
Pick plays were out of control this game. They really need to either make the rules stricter or enforce it better. The rules are already skewed towards offense and getting blindsided by Welker when you're covering Thomas just isn't fair. They never ever call penalties on it.
edit - this is not a block
I am proud of have Keep Pounding sewn into the collar of my jersey (as it is with all Carolina jerseys, of course!)
For those that don't know, we use this phrase to honor the late great player/coach Sam Mills after he coined it in an emotional locker room speech during the 2004 playoffs, just a year before he passed away.
> "When I found out I had cancer, there were two things I could do: quit or keep pounding," Mills said that day. "I'm a fighter. I kept pounding. You're fighters, too. Keep pounding!"
If you ever get in a future accident (hope you don’t) have you figured out how you’re going to show the video? Like would you show cops the video on-scene immediately, potentially giving them hours of other video of your driving, or wait and only use it if you have to?
Edit: The “Amazon’s choice” dash cam I just looked at has an internal mic, too. So if you’re on the freeway singing or spittin’ fire along with your favorite artist (“Move, bitch, get out the way!”) when you get in an accident, they’ll hear that too. It shouldn’t matter, but keep it in mind.

Not necessarily. They have stabilizers that will correct for vibrations in whatever happens to be holding the camera up. It is how they get steady shots in shaking stadiums and on a bumpy cars in movies.

Get one of these. At MetLife you go through a metal detector so no pat down, rig that thing up with some glass bottles and you're golden. Works better for games in the 2nd half of the season when it's cold out. Beer stays cold + it's very well hidden under all of the layers of clothing.
I'm hijacking your top comment here..
The wind chill formula changed quite drastically in 2001 and even more in 2002. So comparing today's wind chill readings to old readings doesn't really make any sense because they were based off of old formula's that are no longer used.
You can read about it here. It's quite interesting!
A lot - so much so that in Cassel's first year at the Chiefs, he'd call up Brady every week to exchange notes. They're still really close.
Side note on the onside kick: A "surprise" onside kick works 60% of the time. It's mathematically benificial to try them more often than coaches do because the 60% probability of getting the ball back is worth losing the average 30 yards of field position. However, these statistics were taken when the kick off was on the 30 rather than the 35. So take these statistics with a grain of salt.

IMO, everyone who has even a passing interest in the "science" behind NFL drafting should read this paper in full: The Loser's Curse: Overconfidence vs. Market Efficiency in the National Football League Draft
FWIW, Richard Thaler, one of the co-authors of the study, recently won the Nobel Prize in Economics. It's also worth noting that nobody in the NFL has seemingly made use of conclusions presented in this research. The Rams have, quite interestingly, decided that 1st round picks are for losers over roughly the past decade and have fielded competitive teams while also having an above average number of draft picks, but even that is still far from what this paper suggests is the most optimal drafting strategy.
Actually, in what is likely simple coincidence, Bose headphones are now available I bright colors with big logos. Imagine that.
It sucks because you have to put yourself before your family when your family is being greedy. But putting yourself before family never sounds good. Same thing happened to Tyron Smith, and he ended up cutting his family off. I can imagine that it ruined some relationships.
You're right, it helps make the sport fun (especially for a Browns fan).
I'd much rather see Baby Hawk kick his child out of the house than hear about the latest domestic violence arrest.

Seeing Packers fans complain about the refs
Edit - The reason why this feels so good
Chad is a fucking pro. Has so much respect for fans, never complained about lack of targets and made me feel like his buddy for a couple seconds because I'm friends with his teammate.
Chad also had on tall shoes, cheatin the height.
Too bad I never got to see him catch a ball
I think I know the exact book.
So for those who don't follow the team closely, this is some recycled and cobbled together stuff.
His original comments came from an hour-long interview on a new ESPN Wisconsin radio show with Jason Wilde, who he used to do a weekly show with, and Mark Tauscher, who used to play for the Packers.
That was a week ago.
After the Milwaukee stuff, Wilde went to Rodgers for a quote and then wrote it up with a new news peg.
Nothing wrong with any of that, but the context is helpful. Also kinda wonder why the OP didn't post the Wilde story from ESPN.
Jerome Simpson had 2 pounds of weed shipped to his house through the mail.

It's not defending murderers, it's looking at an issue like human agency.
The fact is we still have a pretty nascent understanding of the brain, yet even still have discovered time and time again how both genetic and environmental factors influence our decision making in ways we constantly underestimate. Decisions which we think are fully our own in a morally responsible or conscious sense are often influenced by factors we are not conscious of at the time. Taking that into account is not going easy on crime or anything like that, nor is it saying we have no free will or responsibility for our actions, but acknowledging it is trying to get most in line with reality so we can understand what causes horrible actions and how we can best prevent them going forward.
So for instance if we notice there is a much higher rate of domestic abuse or violent behavior in professional football players, and there is also a much higher rate of CTE within this population which affects areas of the brain that deal with impulse control and decision making, then that certainly should influence how we look at these issues and individual cases of them.
Your point about serial killers of the past is the same, we can either just assume some people are born inherently evil without any kind of biological or material cause, or look for empirical reasons and theoretical explanations as to why they happened and why so many had other psychological tells even when they were children.
If anyone is interested in this kind of thinking or learning about how much we are influenced by often subconscious or environmental factors, I highly recommend checking out the book Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. If you are interested in learning about the most interesting studies about our perception and conception of self, I recommend The Ego Tunnel by Thomas Metzinger.
He actually was asked about Gostkowski after this week's game:
“Nobody works harder than Steve. Steve’s a very talented player. He’s mentally tough,” Belichick said. “We’ll work through it. Again, this is a tough place to kick. I’m not making any excuses but the kicker on the other side of the field had trouble too. But we have to have to make them.” source
I think he's starting to get a little fed up with Gostkowski for him to have even said that much.
>Seahawks WR Chris Matthews was fined $11,025 for making an obscene gesture (he grabbed his crotch), not for shaking Marshawn Lynch’s hand
12 second mark: Chris Matthews runs up to Marshawn
After watching it in HD (game tape) i think they were shaking hands but really close to Chris Matthews body (aka package). Here's a picture: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=DEA2A5F71763F8BD!2428&authkey=!AJCO1j0e0WfU_a8&v=3&ithint=photo%2cjpg
As you can see in the video link, he runs up and stretches out his hand and it looks like they shake hands, their hands end up low (again near Chris Matthews package, a low handshake) and then they part ways.
> Costal Carolina
The head coach of Coastal Carolina is the ex-CEO/current Chairman of the Board for TD-Ameritrade. He's a 100% badass, decided he was done making billions of dollars and went back to coaching football. He apparently doesn't donate to his own program / buy them the best facilities, as well he could, as a matter of principle because he wants to build the program based on the merits of his coaching. And it's not like he's a bad coach that's getting by on reputation: he's 39-11 and has won his conference each of the three years he's coached.
So here's the deal:
12 second mark: Chris Matthews runs up to Marshawn, what happens after that point gets a little blurry.
There was also this article defending giving Tebow (4 of 10 for 79yds, 1 TD and 6 carries for 38 yards, 1 TD) a better rating in a loss after playing only half the game than Rodgers (26 of 39 for 396yds, 2 TDs) in a win. They later adjusted both of those grades as well.
Is no one going to point out how excited everyone was for the 2011 eagles?
They were ridiculously hyped, especially after they blew out what looked like a good team in the Rams week 1.
They were the highest ranked team in Madden by a fairly large margin(I think they were 93 and the next closest was the Ravens/Pats with 86). This is only relevant because it shows how they were perceived by the general public.
They were as high as #3 in the power rankings
And as low 24
They hadn't missed the playoffs since 2007 and they hadn't had a losing record since 2005.
Also 2005 Eagles started at #3 and finished at #21.
The 2010 Cowboys were #4 in ESPNs rankings but finished 5-11.
I doubt you're going to find too many more than this, because for the last 15 years(specifically 2002-2011) the top 5 Teams were always considered Pats,Colts,Steelers,Ravens,Eagles and then the Chargers/Cowboys battling it out to push the eagles out. Pats never had a dropoff and the Steelers/Ravens never really did either.
I made this myself, here is the google doc with the data. 2011 is the projected value for 16 weeks.
One mistake I made is I didn't prorate the games from 1977 and before to account for the fact that they only had 14 games, so those numbers (rushing and passing) should be 14 percent higher.
As you can see, the rule changes in 1978 had by far the biggest effect on the league. In 1977 the league rushed for more yards than it passed, and teams were averaging only 141 passing yards per game, with defensive teams like Pittsburgh dominating. By 1980 it was passing for 50% more yards than rushing and averaging 195 passing yards per game, with teams like the 49ers taking over.
The two major changes were illegal contact, which we are all very familiar with, but perhaps more importantly, changing how offensive lineman were allowed to block, allowing them to use the palms of their hands and extend their arms.
Technically it was a Cavs fan
For the Chargers, a couple of names come to mind:
Craig "Bust(er)" Davis - Drafted 30th overall in the 2007 draft, signed a 5 year, 11$ million dollar contract, had a decent rookie year and then got hurt and never played another down for us until he was released in 2011. His teammate at LSU, Dwayne Bowe, still plays for the Chiefs.
Larry "AJ Smith has lost his magic" English - A massive reach at 16th overall in the 2009 NFL draft, English has been a bust his entire career. Let me list the names of players taken after English who have turned into the kind of pass rushers we were hoping to get out of him: Robert Ayers, Clay Matthews, Michael Johnson, etc. etc. (not to mention the non-pass rushers we passed on). English has 11 sacks in FIVE YEARS of injury-plagued play, and yet we're giving him another chance for just over a million dollars this year. No fucking idea why.
Antoine "~~Lockdown Corner~~" Cason - Taken 27th overall in 2008, Cason is only looked upon in a less dim light because the secondary that replaced him last season was HISTORICALLY bad, but it still doesn't excuse taking a guy who wound up burned so many times in the secondary THAT high in the draft (especially with Brandon Flowers still on the board, what the fuck AJ Smith)
Sammy "The Rat Pack singer would have made a better DB" Davis - And HERE is the argument for why you shouldn't always trade down. The Chargers, at 15, could have taken Troy Polamalu, and THEN when they moved back to 30, could have taken Nnamdi Asomugha. But nope, instead AJ Smith took the guy whose biggest contribution to football, according to wikipedia, was developing a system for players to drink water on the field. Fucking wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
From Kevin Seifert:
>Very interesting anecdote from Joe Banner on ESPN' NFL Insiders. Banner interviewed Chip Kelly in 2013 for the Cleveland Browns' job. When he asked which NFL quarterback fit what he would be looking for in the NFL version of his offense, Kelly responded: Christian Ponder. Kelly wanted a quarterback who provides the threat of a run even if he doesn't do it often. Ponder, of course, is currently Kelly's No. 3 quarterback with the 49ers.
Great game in ugly conditions with bad refs. Mariota reminds me a lot of Carr last year, and your defense is a lot like ours in that you're a few secondary players away from being surprisingly good.
Here is how the game drawing game out :). Again, started at kickoff!
By volume, totally. But the rain here that bugs people isn't the amount the fall, but the persistence of it.
>Seattle has a reputation for being fairly rainy and there is data that corroborates that characterization. But it's not as clear cut as you may think, and there are places in the U.S. that receive more rain.
>Seattle experiences an average of 152 rainy days a year, which is more than most cities across the U.S. A rainy day is defined as a calendar day in which at least 0.01 inches of rain, or melted snow and ice, falls.
To be fair INT% has dramatically dropped for most QBs around 2006-2008 when the rules changed to be much more friendly to passers. See for example this graph showing the declining trend in number of interceptions per game.
If we do lowest INT% in the period 2007-present, then we have:
This list could be missing some people ahead of Peyton (I basically went by this list career INT% list and recalculated some people who played part of their careers before 2007.
Note, if I started in say 2006 then Brady's INT% would be 1.60% (84/5244), but if I started in 2009 (or 2008 as he only had 11 attempts) it would be 1.54%.
I'm not trying to argue that Brady is statistically better than Rodgers at INT%, I'm more trying to argue that they are both at the same level in terms of INT%.
My favorite was when Keyshawn Johnson was doing draft coverage and the Panthers drafted Dwayne Jarrett.
"This is a great pick. We need another wide receiver," Johnson gushed while working as a draft analyst for ESPN. "This guy is much like me. I'm going to teach him how to play from the point of attack."
The Panthers cut him three days later.
"Goff's four-year contract is worth $27.9 million with more than $18.5 million guaranteed"
I am so glad a guy who has no idea where the sun rises will make more money in his first contract than 15 people working an entire lifetime.
According to this article by Mike Reiss:
>New England Patriots starting defensive end Rob Ninkovich will serve a four-game suspension to open the 2016 regular season after a positive test for a banned substance, and said he is devastated and shocked because he would never knowingly take an illegal substance.
>"Few things are more important to me than my name and reputation. This might call that into question for some, which has me heartbroken," Ninkovich told ESPN. "I don't want to cut any corners. I want to do things the right way, with high integrity, and that's what I have always wanted to stand for."
>"Any supplement I've ever used was bought at a store. I was unaware something I bought had a substance in it that would give me a positive test because it wasn't listed [as an ingredient]," he told ESPN.
>"One thing I have learned is that if a supplement is not NSF certified there are no regulations that ensure that what is on the label is 100 percent accurate. That is a hard lesson for me to learn at this stage in my career, but I take responsibility for it. It's a mistake I made and it hurts that I won't be there for my teammates."
And for those asking who will replace him:
>The Patriots project to start veteran Chris Long, who signed with the Patriots after spending the first eight years of his career with the Rams, in his place. Jabaal Sheard is the other starter, with Shea McClellin (5th year) and second-year players Trey Flowers, Geneo Grissom and Rufus Johnson rounding out the depth chart.
Edited to add further information:
According to Jeff Howe, per this tweet, the failed test was from mid-summer, seeming that it would have been prior to his injury.
You know we as a subreddit have peaked when you can buy a "Cheers From Iraq" shirt on Amazon now
Don't know how I stumbled across that.
Especially considering that the Saints defenders were celebrating that first hit after it gave the Seahawks a free first down on *third and long
Edit: Here's a gif that shows some of it at the very end
Gore, from this article in 2015 explaining why he chose the Colts over the Eagles
>"Every year with Andrew Luck being the quarterback, they've taken a step in the playoffs," Gore said. "So I feel like before I leave this game I want to win a championship and I think this team is the best situation for me to get there."
By no means are the Eagles poised for a championship run now, nor were they at the time of Gore's decision, but damn, ya gotta feel for the guy. Went to an up and coming Colts team and now they're the team that "hops on their opponent's knee and breaks themselves"
You know those uniform mock-ups you see that make you say 'that's kinda cool but it looks a bit tacky/like an Arena team'?
That's the sort of thing I want.
Fuck tradition, I want slick, bright, futuristic unis for every team.
Some of these are good. I especially like the Cardinals and Bills ones.
Never fun? I don't think guys that are 'never fun' have teammates plotting revenge pranks on them.
>“Peyton and Decker, they got me real well last night,” Franklin told reporters in Denver on Wednesday. “I’m definitely looking forward to revenge at this point. I wasn’t really paying attention to it. That was stupid on my behalf, but like I said I’m looking forward to getting those guys back. I think a lot of guys are going to jump at that opportunity. So we’ve just got to plan something out real well for him and get him when it counts.”
WR Cody Lattimer also talks about this topic.
>"Outside of football he's a fun guy. When he's in football mode, he's in football mode. He's a businessman. He has his business side and he has his fun side."
Also, it's hard to criticize Peyton for allegedly getting guys worked up and making mental mistakes considering he's also making them pro bowl receivers on one of the best offenses in the league. If Manning was easy on his guys I don't think they're catching 55 TDs in a year.
Like way off-topic, but I have the hugest crush on her. She actually had a cameo in The League in the episode where Pete started assigning points based on various criteria in order to date women. Milana (AT&T girl) was one of the girls at the bar in which Pete hit on and left with.
Amazon Prime Users can View it here. She is seen throughout the first 1:30 a few times, but introduces herself at 1:19. You can see her here.
That was more work than I even thought I'd ever put into a comment and more unintentionally creepy knowledge that I thought I'd ever have to use.
They aren't biased, but they are based on an oversimplified model that's better applied to two-person competitive games (like chess where the competitor doesn't meaningfully change between games). With team sports ELO can't factor in very important details like personnel changes, injuries, and less important games (e.g., week 17 games after securing playoff seed).
The Pats losing a game with an injured third-string rookie QB halved our SB odds (12% to 6%) in the ELO model. Meanwhile, according to Vegas the Pats started week 1 with 6:1 odds to win the superbowl and after four games improved to 4:1 odds as going 3-1 was better than expected with their backup QBs.
> In one of Brown's journal entries obtained as part of the investigation, he writes: "I have abused my wife."
> There was also a 2013 "Contract for Change" signed by Brown, his wife and counselor Jerry Price. Item No. 2 states that Josh Brown had physically, verbally and emotionally abused Molly.
> In a letter to friends in 2014 that Josh Brown warned would be hard to read, he admitted to carrying an overwhelming sense of entitlement. He said he viewed himself as God and that Molly was basically his slave.

Teddy threw 4 first quarter TDs in 2015 and 3 in 2014 for a total of 7 in his career.
Carr threw 0 so far this year, but 4 last year and 3 in 2014.
I guess that's a little significant. 7 to 3.

This is a bit from an article about the owners voting on the Rams move.
"Going into the meeting, most believed Carson had more votes. But one moment, many would later recall, seemed to halt its momentum. Michael Bidwill, president of the Cardinals and a Carson supporter, argued that the NFL doesn't exist just to make rich owners richer. Owners needed to consider what would be best for the league, and ...
Jones cut him off: "When you guys moved the team from St. Louis to Phoenix -- it wasn't about the money?"
As Bidwill tried to answer, Jones moved in for the kill: "You did it for the money."

Did anyone else see that amazing comback? #Seahawks
Plus, I mean, Paul Allen is their owner. They're based in a city known for its tech presence and being on the cutting edge.
To be fair, I think most teams will be doing this 5-10 years down the road.
they’re a well-known historical franchise, especially in Minnesota. Ebbets Field Flannels has an era-accurate jersey for sale here.
there’s also a book about the team, which was adapted into the movie Leatherheads, starring George Clooney.
From what I've heard, he does an astounding amount of charity and volunteer work. Dude recently cooked for victims and firefighters of the Carr Fire in northern California.
Yeah, he got asked about it and said it was the right call even after review. When the person asking pressed the question, the ref said "it's 2016 dude."
Surely this salty Lions fan must be embellishing? No, he literally fucking said that. He also said there should be a horse collar? Guy is a fucking idiot.
But hey, it's okay. The hail mary "was an exciting play and I'm glad I had a good perspective of it."
Eagles fans can breath that this trade didn't go through.

For those who don't know, Troymaine Pope is a UDFA who didn't even make our rookie minicamp. He was literally added to the roster as a Camp Body and has balled out of control ever since.
You see, we had several injuries to our drafted RBs and we desperately needed someone to hand the ball off to. So we called up some random undersized FCS RB. And that fucker has fought tooth and nail for a spot.

Well get to serious stuff I need to be off my chest but the video today is sponsored by NordVPN. Have you been Googling in Cam-phonics to stop your head coach from seeing your search history. With our sponsor NordVPN that’s a thing of the past.
"cheating is encouraged" is the title of a book on the 70's raiders. If you wanna denounce the golden years of your franchise go right ahead.
He's a rookie and missed a bunch of time with a foot injury, but I'm expecting him to make an impact with teams focusing on Anquan and Crabtree. Kap clearly trusts him (see: this throw to set up the game-winning field goal against Arizona) and we can use him in different ways.
I'm reading the book "Why We Sleep" and it's seriously scary how important sleep is yet how little people get, and how socially acceptable that is.
Thankfully, it's been the catalyst for me going to bed earlier and making sure to get 8 hours minimum, and I'm feeling pretty good.
I found one for my car, thanks bro.
Here are the Z-Scores for QB Rating. As you can see, Rodgers' is almost an outlier with a score of 2.95. Brees did very well with a score of 2.03.
Here are the Z-Scores for Passing yards. Brees' Z-Score here is 1.97.
I took the players and numbers from NFL based on who qualified for those particular statistics.

Well according to this, at one point they played Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in about 26:38 but that was with George Szell so maybe it's gotten faster.
Here's the most insane part of that stat: they've only given up 54 yards per game in games against 5 of the top 10 receivers in the league.
That's Julio, AJ Green, and T.Y. Hilton as the top 3, guys averaging nearly 100 yards a game.
Fuck that. Read Den of Thieves and get back to us. It kills the integrity of the markets, which have been placed at the heart of our economy. And it also is lazy bullshit that stifles actual innovation. The most basic tenet of capitalism is innovation being rewarded. Create better products and processes and you'll succeed while society should benefit from your ingenuity.
We can't as a country allow the lazy members of Wall Street to corrupt the most basic ideals of capitalism. That lazy corruption leads to the mortgage crisis that we are still recovering from. You allow a culture of unabashed corruption to fester within a greed obsessed community like Wall Street and you'll get even more financial crises then they already produce.
Seems like you're right!
"Beckham and Cruz plan to wear special 9/11 cleats before and during Sunday's season opener against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium."
Sooooo, yeah, there's no reason that the Tennessee players shouldn't be allowed to wear them.
It's really just a bunch of bullshit to be honest. This is just a CYA policy the NFL instituted to avoid lawsuits. I would typically go through a couple of helmets every season in college. There's no reason players can't have more than one helmet, I'm sure many of them do. You don't want a crack in it that can ruin the integrity of the helmet and those aren't too hard to get. Hell, didn't the Broncos fullback break a couple of facemasks on opening night? I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few cracked helmets in that game as well.
The NFL does not want to be forcing players to wear particular helmets in case someone gets injured. It's really about avoiding legal troubles that may come from that. The current painting process uses a very hard coating that takes multiple days to cure so they can't just repaint all of the helmets, especially since many players need them for practice as well.

I think you mean six players, not the whole team. Your own link states that. Also, the players health was put in jeopardy by listening to that quack they thought was a doctor. Dr. Shortt ignored medical knowledge and prescribed things he shouldn't have.

In case you are wondering how big the Lions playbook is
There's a horrible misconception that Tommy John surgery resets the odometer on your UCL, or even makes it stronger. Because of this a few misinformed people believe having it done on a high school or college pitcher will get it out of the way before they get into their college/professional years, and send them into those prime developmental and earning seasons at a lower risk of needing Tommy John. This isn't true.
The UCL connects the upper and lower parts of the arm at the elbow. The most common version of the surgery involves taking a tendon from elsewhere in the body (often the leg), or a cadaver, and replacing the frayed or torn UCL in the elbow. New holes have to be drilled into the humerus (upper arm) and ulna (lower arm) bones for the replacement tendon to be attached. There's a nerve in there too that has to be carefully moved so it doesn't bump up against scar tissue that will form and cause extreme pain.
While the success rate has improved from the early days of the surgery, it still isn't 100%. When "full" recovery happens, it still takes over a year from the time of the surgery for baseball pitchers. Still: The donor tendon isn't as strong as the original, and the bone isn't as strong where you had to drill more holes into it to accommodate the replacement ligament. Many pitchers don't come back with full arm strength, and the increasing prevalence in baseball over the past 10-20 years has taught us that the risk of reinjury is higher once you've gone under the knife a first time. Think ACLs in football.
Bottom line: You never want to have Tommy John surgery. And doctors who would perform it electively on children should be sued for malpractice.
(My knowledge of this comes from Jeff Passan's excellent book The Arm)
It's no longer required due to a rule change. The league conveniently changed the rule when the Patriots signed Kyle Brady, which would have required Tom Brady to wear "T.Brady" and cause a lot of people to suddenly have outdated jerseys.
I am imagining him trying this and then yelling in Kevin Hart's voice "HE AINT GOT NO NIPPLESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!"
You should really edit your post since it's at the top. It was Chris Mathews who was fined for an obscene gesture, which, in reality was literally a handshake, but because it was lower and close to Mathews' crotch, he was fined for it. basically, someone at the NFL is spending way too much time looking for crotches to fine.

Twitter post confirming it was Mathews, not Daniels who was fined
> He had 20 targets inside the 10 yard line in the red zone, and Diggs had 7. That’s scheme over talent, and Diggs can’t necessarily help that.
It's not just scheme over talent, because most schemes are based on their player's talents. The reason Adams gets so many RZ targets is largely because he's one of the best, if not the best, RZ WRs in the game. Diggs is not. Pretty simple to see - Diggs had 5 TDs on 16 RZ targets (and 3 on 7 in the 10). Adams had 14 TDs on 28 RZ targets (and 13 on 20 in the 10). Hypothetically if you gave Diggs the same amount of targets he would've had 8.75 RZ TDs and 8.6 inside the 10. Adams is simply much better inside the RZ, therefore he gets more targets.
> Adams ran more routes per game than Diggs did too.
Adams ran 5 less routes per game (464 routes/14 games to Diggs 611/16 games).
The running game thing is somewhat debunked at this point. Still, I'd consider their situations basically a wash.
Seems like a pretty decent gap to me, although I see where you're coming from. Definitely a viable opinion.
> How does actually seeing what he did make it worse? They knew.
Apparently seeing it does make it worse. 83 players have been arrested for domestic violence since 2000. There has never, ever been a public outcry as big as this one. What the difference between all of those cases and this one? The biggest one is that there's a video.
It's sad to say, but really the biggest reason that people are flipping out over this incident is that there's a video of it that they can watch over and over and over again and ESPN can play it over and over and over again.
Domestic violence is terrible. It deserves to be punished. However, if you're one of the people clamoring for Goodell to be fired, I have one question for you: why weren't you doing so with all of the other domestic violence cases? Many of them went unpunished. So where were you? By far the biggest reason you're here right now is not the act itself, but because there's a fucking video of it.
Nice book gift for a sports fan.
His story is cool. Good life lessons throughout.
NCAA Championship followed by Viet Nam and then 4 Super Bowl rings.
I saw this on Sharktank a while ago and I remember thinking, "who the fuck would buy this?"
I guess I underestimated the market.
Can we all at least agree that the Talahassee PD was incredibly shady? The garbage they pulled while handling this case was straight-up bush-league.
He led with his mask. That's a big no-no in today's NFL.
Personally I didn't think it's that terrible either because the play was clearly breaking down, but I still get why he was flagged and fined.
Be grateful, our starting guard got fined, flagged, <em>and</em> concussed by a retarded ass cheap shot on one of your guys.
