Re: 2020 Playoff Race

The Braves put up 15, but also Fried was topping out at 95 and only went 5 returning from the IL with some kind of back injury (broadcast mentioned they wanted him to rest his shoulder). They're not going far in the playoffs without him at full strength

Makes sense. Marlins have never lost a playoff series, that streak will end this year. For sure, but also Sixto Sanchez might get them past the first round.

Robinson by DVOA and DYAR:

2019 - 26th, 45th
2018 - 47th, 52nd
2017 - Not ranked, injured?
2016 - 73rd, 74th

Re: NFL Week 1

Sean McDermott seems alright. The evidence:

- He's wearing a mask on the sideline
- He went for it on 4th and close, like everyone should do all the time

Too bad his QB is Josh Allen*

*He converted the 4th down, they're up 14-0 in the second

Also that Diggs trade was good

Re: NFL Week 1

I'll keep insisting Tunsil is the Texans' best player and the best OT in the league until it's mainstream or probably that Becton guy in NY breaks out, whichever is first. Looks like he's really hit his stride in this league and it even seems like the Texans' offense works more around him than Watson
