I don't know if this link will work for everyone, but maybe it will if you don't visit the site too often.

Inside the friction between Bill O’Brien, DeAndre Hopkins Some of the same stuff as above, and more. This makes me like BOB less, though DeAndre downplayed the reports and was professional about it. Good on him to move on.

Draft on Thursday! cool

I am living in virtual meetings these days so seeing these guys do it will be interesting. I’d be fine if both NYC teams took OL but that would be boring.


In other NFL news, Gronkowski is joining Brady in Tampa. That division will be entertaining, fans or not.

I hope there is a season. The NFL is the greatest unscripted drama ever. Entertainment wise, it’s king. Some of that starts Thursday. taz

I hope the Redskins defense gets significantly stronger. Let's see if they follow through in drafting Chase Young. cool

It's going to be interesting to watch the draft unfold tonight, both because of the usual reasons and because of all of the technical hurdles imposed by Covid-19 social distancing.

Best,

Geoff

Wow. The Packers traded up to get QB Jordan Love!

Shades of 2005, when they picked Aaron Rodgers while Brett Favre still had a few good years left in him. Love will have a similar chance to watch one of the all-time greats in action before he gets his shot. I hope history repeats with a favorable outcome but with a smoother transition this time.

Of course for the near future, it's being seen as squandering a first round pick on a backup position. After reaching the NFC Championship last year, Green Bay has a realistic shot at reaching the Super Bowl this year (providing of course that the pandemic will wane and that there will be a 2020 season). A first round receiver could have gone a long way toward providing Rodgers with another solid target.

Best,

Geoff

As I mentioned in the NBA thread, I've been enjoying good sports video content despite the fact that sports are having a time out due to the pandemic.

Here's a don't miss series for Packers fans, which also may be of interest to those who want to learn more about the early days of the NFL and discover why Green Bay managed to survive the lean times when all other small community teams were weeded out of the league:

Packers Legacy Documentary Series

Here's the first video to get you started:

Brotha Moe, the Skins drafted another Buckeye. laugh

On paper, it looks like my team drafted for the "right" positions. Of course, the proof will have to show up on the field.

I've got a feeling the Skins defense will be better than last year. They should be able to keep the games close.

Unfortunately, I think the offense will struggle between a new OC and a 2nd year QB learning a new system. cool

I'm still enjoying the Packers Legacy Documentary Series, as a new episode is released each week, one for each decade.

In the most recent episode, I discovered that Green Bay passed on Joe Montana in both the second and third rounds of the 1979 draft. Who was the guy declined to pick the future Hall of Famer? None other than Packers quarterback legend (and then head coach) Bart Starr!

Starr also picked Rich Campbell over Ronnie Lott two years later.

More here:

Packers could have had Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott, if only

A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

I have so many find memories of watching him year after year in the 70s growing up.
We would hike to the local Sunoco gas station to beg for player cards hoping to score a Bob Griese or a Larry Csonka.

I recall this was happening with the old L.A. Rams, when they were signing old quarterbacks for one-year deals, Namath, Bartkowski, they all were busts as I can remember.

There's not much news in sports these pandemic days, but this is worth noting:

They need somebody. I hope the rest helped. He is such a dynamic player when he plays well.

While it's not my money, Cam Newton's deal with the Pats makes very little sense.

Granted Cam's his injury status and not having played in 2 years should be a concern and is the reason for an incentive laden contract, I believe he should have gotten a better deal.

Chase Daniel doesn't have a similar resume by any stretch of the imagination and he got a much better deal with the Lions. cool
