    Week 1 Pick 'ems 2018-2019

    I’m going to sit this season out. Crazy busy... I’ve had to put the NFL on the back burner. Good luck to all. Go Pats!

    Number Association Game

    The fact that I didn't think of Favre or Vinatieri for #4 further proves that I don't pay enough attention to jersey numbers. Either that or the fact that #4, in my mind, will forever be associated with the legendary Bobby Orr.

    Going through this was interesting as it made me realize I don't pay much attention to player numbers. The first player I thought of was 50 - Singletary. He might be the one player I associate most with a number in NFL history. Then I went 1-99 and these are the other players that popped into my head first and within a short time period.

    The Bucs should surprise everyone this season and run that play with JPP.

    Nice job, Titans! I have a feeling both will perform very well with TEN as they did in NE. Solid pick-ups. Really hate to see them go, but this will keep my “around the league” interest up. Plus it worked out pretty well for the last team who signed two former Pats, RB/DEF (Philly - Blount/Long). Also Danny ‘Best Hands All Time’ Amendola going to MIA Guy turned into a juiced Jerry Rice every playoffs. Hate to see him go as well, but I know he’ll crush it in that Miami sun (On and Off the field)

    I suppose this is partially true to an extent. I don't remember many great plays from players on losing teams in non-Patriots Super Bowls. But in Patriots Super Bowls I do. I'll never forget Julio's catch on the sideline, or the circus catch by Kearse. Or Terrell Owens beasting out during the first Eagles/Pats Super Bowl (the one where the good guys won). Think he had a broken leg, too. Or Jake Delhomme tossing bombs when the Pats beat the Panthers... I could go on. I don't think I'll ever forget those plays. But come to think of it, I still remember quite a few great plays made by players on losing teams. Larry Fitzgerald's 2 TDs to put AZ on top of PIT late in SB XLIII. Devin Hester's KO return to open the SB against the Colts. Don Beebe's hustle play denying Leon Lett of a TD.

    I will say though that no one celebrates a Super Bowl win quite like Philly fans. http://www.12up.com/posts/5972374-female-eagles-fans-get-nsfw-tattoos-on-lips-to-honor-nick-foles http://abc7chicago.com/sports/eagles-fan-appears-to-eat-horse-poop-amid-super-bowl-celebration/3042971/ WTF are they putting in those cheesesteaks?

    Not arguing many of your points, but I don't agree here. Sure most Pats fans and media are giving Belichick sh*t for the defensive inefficiency and not playing Butler (and rightfully so), but for what it's worth, I have not listened to or read a single interview or article that has done so without also giving Philly their credit. I mean, I'll say it again, Pederson and Foles were brilliant. My view on that is already documented in this thread. And there's a huge difference between what happened to Atlanta and Seattle and what happened to New England. Atlanta's and Seattle's mistakes can be viewed as temporary lapses in judgement - or even fluke plays. In both cases, the coaches made decisions to pass the ball late in the game with arguably two of the top 5 QBs in the league. Both teams had recently moved the chains by passing it - Wilson to whoever the hell made that crazy catch down the sideline - and Ryan to Julio and Sanu. ATL/SEA were having success with those types of plays. The chances of making an error in those situations (throwing a pick at the goal line or taking a sack/penalty) were slim. Both teams had their BEST players out there and were playing to WIN the game. What Belichick did was bench arguably one of the best Patriots defenders, who played just under 98% of the regular season snaps and replaced him with a combination of one below average (Rowe) and two other players no one has ever heard of (Bademosi, Richards)... and to this point there has been ZERO explanation for doing so. Not only did Belichick do it because "he's in charge and he'll make a statement whenever he feels like it" (at least that's what we have to assume)... he stuck with it when it clearly wasn't working... didn't change anything. That is not putting your team in a situation to win. Also, the NE vs. ATL/SEA games were back and forth where sometimes the offense made a play and sometimes the defense made a play. The NE/PHI game was offense, offense, offense and more offense. The adjustment NEEDED to be made on the defensive side of the ball. I dunno... I just don't think there's much comparison at all between those games. Last point... at least most Pats fans are willing to admit that Philly outplayed them and executed on a perfect gameplan. Because they did. And that's a hell of a lot more than people say about the Patriots when they win. 2001 - refs/tuck rule/taped Rams walkthrough... 2003 - cheated... 2004 - spygate... 2014 - deflategate... 2016 - cheated/refs. I think if Pats fans are bitching about Belichick (and we have every right to) it's still better than what every other fan base has done when the Pats win.

    Agree with 99.9% of this. I still blame Belichick. 1) Doug Pederson kicked Belichick's ass and coached circles around him 2) Belichick's ego prevented the Pats from being the best version of themselves when it mattered most. Again, not saying the Pats 100% would have won if Butler played... but the defense was ineffective - especially Rowe, Bademosi and Richards - who were playing the Butler role. Butler should have been on the field. I question not starting him in the first place, but not playing him in the 2nd half after the defense was shredded up and down the field on every single possession is inexcusable. I keep torturing myself and reading things like this, which further proves the "put Butler in the game" point: https://nesn.com/2018/02/super-bowl-lii-film-review-where-patriots-missed-malcolm-butler/ What Belichick did is equivalent to a successful boxer who fights southpaw and makes it to a title bout... then in that title bout he changes from southpaw to orthodox stance... and gets his brains beat in for the first half of the fight... then keeps fighting orthodox instead of switching back to southpaw. Why do you make the change in the first place... and why don't you adjust when you realize it's not working? Makes zero sense to me. Injuries are what they are. Sucked not having Julian, Hightower & Cooks, sure. But every team has to deal with injuries at some point. The sad truth is that Brady played an all time great game. 505 passing yards is the most in a Super Bowl Playoff game all time. He was at his all time best... and the defense choked. Brady is GOAT. Belichick can eat sh*t. Patricia can take a hike, too.

    Well, the Pats may have lost the Super Bowl, but Kraft just officially won #deflategate
