If you told me a month or 6 weeks ago that Lampard would get fired before either Ole or Arteta I wouldn’t have believed you.

Re: NFL perpetual 2020 regular and postseason non Bears thread

Hard to believe. Literally picked up Brady and instant Super Bowl. That’s how good he is. Tampa went 7-9 last year with a QB who threw 30 interceptions. All they needed was a competent QB who could see straight and knew what he was doing. They struggled to beat a 7-9 Wash team with a crap QB and th...

Yeah, that’s just as bad, if not worse than the punts by the Titans and Steelers in the first round.

AFAIK they just loaded that marathon into a playlist and pressed repeat.' I genuinely hope the sports stuff gets moved to peacock premium, another chink in cable's armor would be a good thing.

But it’s not penalizing the team. They signed him to a contract. They structured it the way they did for a reason. They knew the risks.

Re: NBA 20-21 Season

Harden and Durant combined for 138 points in their first two games together, second most all time. What’s completely unsurprising is that Wilt holds the record at 151 points. It’s with some random dude named York Larese. What’s slightly more surprising, though not much, is that if Larese hadn’t scor...

Re: NFL perpetual 2020 regular and postseason non Bears thread

Even if you operate under the assumption that Brady now is better than Belichick now, it doesn’t mean it’s always been the case. The first three Super Bowls, Brady was good, but he wasn’t yet what he’d become. They won those more with defense than offense. Brady threw at least 12 picks each of his f...

Pick up Brady, POOF instant SB contention. Someone much smarter than me will write an article breaking down the "Belichick System" myth. This year showed us that Belichick - Brady = meh while meh team + Brady = contender I would say it shows us that going from Jameis throwing 30 picks to ...

We're also coming up way short in vaccination distribution. It’s gotten a lot better. We are up to about 800k doses/day. Over 950k/day now. This horsefeathers is about to get crazy. I’m conservatively guessing over 2M/day by the end of next week. Any chance part of that is a weekend backlog? I've b...

Re: The Politics Thread

Odd. So basically, if Democrats can hold their caucus and Republicans want to wait until Trump's out of office, we can get this done without a single one of them. The ban vote would only take place if the impeachment resulted in conviction. They need 17 (i think) republicans to get to there. So the...

It’s fun for the 3-4 franchises that have a chance. But not really anyone else. How do you get people to agree to eliminate the max salary?

College football is a simple game. 11 men attempt to move the ball against 11 other men for 60 minutes. And in the end, Alabama wins.

I can’t believe how little Fields has done tonight. I’m sure he’s still hurt from the semi but 9-18 for 138 isn’t good.

So are we seeing a Christmas bump in new cases or is this still catching up on the backlog from Christmas and New Years? Or is it too early to know yet? The 7 day rolling average had leveled off the couple weeks before Christmas but it’s been climbing the past few days.

Would there not be a Republican majority of 51 - 49 with a split tonight? If so, on future legislation with all the Dems aligned all that's required is one GOP Senator to enable Kamala as the deciding vote.

Re: NFL perpetual 2020 regular season non Bears thread

7-20 for 72 yards in 3 quarters is absolutely bad enough to be pulled. I know he ran for 2 TDs also but that line is horrid. Of course it’s not just Hurts’s play in a vacuum and, as you pointed out, you have to factor in the backup. If they brought Wentz in it would be a different story. I think wha...

Re: NFL perpetual 2020 regular season non Bears thread

The Wentz thing is definitely odd unless he was hurt and didn’t want to tell anyone. As for going for it on 4th down, aren’t the Eagles typically on the aggressive side in those situations. I’m guessing the math favors going for it from 4 yards out, especially in the 4th quarter. I’m guessing it’s a...

Can someone explain why exactly this Jalen Hurts getting pulled for Sudfeld is such a big story?

But with the amount of attention it’s getting, you would have thought...
