  1. It's being reported that Malcolm Butler looks like he's going to stay with the Patriots this year. I would never go so far as to say that the Patriots are a lock to win another Super Bowl. Injuries, the 'any given Sunday' model of the NFL... there's a lot of reason why it might not happen. That being said, I cannot remember a time since 2007 when a Patriots roster was as stacked as it is now. The rest of the NFL looks like a Triple-A league compared to the Patriots.
  2. Aaron Hernandez apparently killed himself.
  3. Derek Carr says that Oakland Raiders fans that don't stay loyal to the Raiders when the team departs for Las Vegas, aren't true Raiders fans. In related news, Derek Carr thinks that when your wife leaves you for a richer dude, you should still be loyal to her.
  4. Turns out that delusional projections of grandeur aren't just for Miami Dolphins fans, but the players as well! Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry thinks Miami will sweep Patriots
  5. It is the off-season, after all.
  6. The (best?) anniversary present in shirt form:
  7. Ivanka's office. White House. Government devices. Access to classified information. Game of Thrones of America.
  8. That's true. Also, hybrid cars are economic in part because of their fuel efficiency.
  9. Guys, I'm really sorry for all of your teams that the Patriots have won the offseason. Must be real tough on you all.
  10. The Cooks trade is exciting. I'm just sorry for Danny Amendola that his time with the Pats is likely over with unless they roll back on expectations out of Gronk and wind up playing 1TE 3WR sets significantly more than they do now. Amendola has restructured his contract the past few years taking less money, outright saying that playing on a winning team means more to him than money. We'll see how far that goes. Honestly, all the FA moves have been exciting for the Patriots. Jabaal Sheard leaving hurts a little, but Trey Flowers started to outplay him last year anyway. Chris Long leaving doesn't bother me much, and his DE trade replacement in Ealy is likely to produce at the same (or greater) capacity. Gilmore is an upgrade on Logan Ryan. If the Pats are able to sign Hightower and Butler, then what will already be talk about the Patriots heading back to the Super Bowl in 2017 is going to turn into shouts from the mountain top. Either way, 2017 is shaping up to be a 2007-ish 'Go big or go home season' for TB12's 40th birthday. I'm not saying undefeated, but I am saying that it's going to be a fuck of a fun season to watch if you're a Patriots fan. All this while you could argue the rest of the NFC East teams continue to degrade. It's almost as if they're all planning to build toward the day when Tom Brady retires, because that's how long it looks like they're going to need to come close to relevancy again.
  11. Too many trades to note them all, but there are some crazy ones, both in quality and economy. There's talk of Malcom Butler heading out shortly because of the CB trades. As a Patriots fan, it's Butler's legacy to be tarnished. It wouldn't bother me if Butler left. I expect it. It's the NFL; it's a free market system, and perceived value at times counts as much as true value. Butler is a good CB. Is he elite? No. He'll probably be a good CB somewhere else. But he is and only will ever be a player with legacy-based cache in New England. That's $$$ status. New England will always love him for 'the play,' but they'd enshrine him across the region, and by proxy the world really, if he was a 1-team player. But do you know whose departure really gets at me? Logan Ryan going to Tennessee. #1. Because fuck Tennessee. #2. Logan Ryan is a DECENT player. The Patriots defense makes this guy a star at this position. Good job, Logan Ryan's agent for getting that deal, but fuck Logan Ryan if he thinks he's going to be half the player he is without the Patriots defense putting him in a good position to succeed. This situation has Patrick Chung written all over it.
  12. Tim Ubick's tap is so fast that they've replaced the turbo button on remakes of the NES advantage controller with a picture of his head and a word bubble that reads, "You need more practice."
  13. Upon release, and recognizing that the device didn't fit into the docking station comfortably, about a dozen device peripheral companies started to design screen protectors. Brutal. I expect more out of Nintendo creating a 'new console' than to not account for screen protection within the included docking station. Fucking brutal. Screen protection because it's a handheld on the go? Totally. Screen protection because it doesn't fit into the console's own docking station without issue? No sir.
  14. The Tecmo Rabbit tore off one of his own feet as a gift to Tim Ubick.
