    Simmons podcast: “I don’t remember a game possibly hinging on a defensive player laying off for fear of a penalty.”

    On the same play where Brady ran it in, the Chiefs were also flagged for defensive holding, so worst case scenario it’s first and goal at the 1.

    Also, I can remember a number of times a defensive player lets off a player headed out of bounds only for that player to stay inbounds to go on and score. Kordell Stewart in the playoffs way back when comes to mind.

    In San Francisco, where my daughter and grandchildren live.

    “I have really grown to appreciate and love San Francisco over the years—and not just because my daughter Laura met her wife Kim there, and Kim has become such an invaluable part of our lives, and because our two grandchildren have been born there. ”

    “No catcalling postings, painted into sidewalks in their neighborhood, strike me as so progressive and important these days, and that yelling sexist and sexual crap at women is not okay. And the library … sharing books, for free, is something we should encourage at a time when we veer altogether toward the phone and away from the printed page. I realize San Francisco has so many issues now, and homelessness is an epidemic. Cities can’t get everything right. I know nothing about the politics of the place. I just know when I visit there I feel like I’m visiting an enlightened city, a beautiful city, that is trying.”

    Not only doesn’t Bob play by the rules – but his father was the District Attorney.

    “Bob Sutton—who gets a ton of respect from the Patriots—doesn’t play by everyone else’s rules.”

    Me neither.

    “I can’t see anyone beating the Astros.”

    With the young people and the baggy pants and the hipping and hopping….

    “Cool video of the week: “Girls Like You,” by Maroon 5. See how many of the guest stars you can ID. (Clue: It will be more than I can. I got Ellen, Aly Raisman and Danica Patrick. I think Alex Morgan is in there too, but I can’t swear to it.)”

    A Peter King Trifecta.

    Sutton is under fire because KC’s defense is a sieve.

    SF is getting heavy criticism for letting the homeless situation get out of control.

    And he’s pimping Maroon 5 because a lot of people don’t like that the NFL picked them for the Super Bowl halftime show.

    Lots of 16-0 talk in these parts today on the radio. Also, not one person on the radio this morning gives one crap that Machado refuses to run out routine ground balls. As the hosts of the morning sports show say “He’s more than earned it”. Quite a difference from the braintrust on sports radio in Boston when a player of color refuses to run out ground balls and they want to run the player out of town. The only person I noticed who was offended was Rob Lowe on Twitter who wanted Machado benched. Good sound strategy there in the playoffs.

    I love how Pete is always pimping how hard a guy like Joe Buck works.  It’s his busy season!  Also enjoy him throwing in that he and his wife have twins, like Buck is changing diapers and breast feeding.

    Yeah Pete, San Francisco isn’t the only place with those neighborhood book boxes.  A nice old couple down the street does that in our neighborhood.  And another couple at the base of a popular cycling hill maintains a daily fresh cooler of water for cyclists/walkers/dog walkers.  Fuck you.

    Being an overly sensitive Patriots honk, the QB comparison graphic in the 4th quarter did not escape my notice. At that point, Brady had around 200 yards, 1 TD and a lost fumble. For Mahomes, they listed his total yards and that he had 4 TDs in the second half. No mention of his two interceptions. The announcers brought them up, but why try to hide it when you’re doing a QB comparison?

    The two interceptions by Mahomes were pretty important because 1 set the Patriots up for an easy TD and the second took at least the opportunity for a FG away from the Chiefs.

    Pete has a soft spot for the Ravens d-line coach, who passed out naked and drunk in a Subway parking lot 12 years ago while coaching at Ole Miss.

    People can grow, change and improve their lives.

    Funny, I don’t recall him taking that perspective with Josh Gordon.

    The 12 additional yards Mahomes threw for the game were far more magical than what YOUR qb did caller.

    Small thing but last night at the Pats, there were no announcements or big screen highlights of the Red Sox. They had the score up on one of the boards but unless i missed it, no live acknowledgment which they have done in the past. Maybe the Pats have had enough of the Sox.

    One of the reasons these damn things are everywhere is it’s one of the suggestions for Girl Scouts to get their Silver awards. I know because it’s what my daughter chose. She was supposed to arrange for its posting at our church playground a year ago. Fucking thing’s still taking up space in my garage.  :ozzy:

    That was my senior year.  I didn’t recall going to that game then looked it up and it was 2 days before Christmas, hence one of the few games I missed.  Lost to Seton Hall in the Sweet 16 that year.

    Sure thing Matt, they’ve been so unfair to him up to this point, they really do owe him a “solid”. :wall:

    ESPN analyst Matt Hasselbeck suggested Sunday that the Giants trade Manning to the Jaguars to give the 37-year-old another shot at a Super Bowl and a fresh start for the 1-5 Giants. Jacksonville has been a popular suggestion for Manning as he and the Giants have gone 4-18 combined this season and last. His old coach, Tom Coughlin, is the Jaguars’ president, and Blake Bortles is their inconsistent starting quarterback.

    “I would do Eli Manning a solid. I would trade him to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jacksonville has a team and they’re making a run,” Hasselbeck said on “Sunday NFL Countdown.”

    The run Jax is making seems to be to third place in the division. They are now tied with the Texans and the Titans.

    Red Sox showed Pats highlights on the big screen – through the score that put them at 24.

    Great game last night. Gronk must really be hobbled, but that stiffarm was unbelievable. It is readily apparent that they still have shitloads of improvements to make in the passing game, which is amazing.

    Harmon stinks right now.  That Hill touchdown was like the 45th worst play he’s made all season.  I know he’s made some big picks, including in the end zone last night, but he is late to fucking everything.  Trying not to be reactionary either – in the JAX game I honestly thought he was drunk. If there was a trade that upgraded their back line, I would be thrilled to see it.

    Talking football only, I think I would play 2018 Blake Bortles over 2018 Eli Manning though the stats favor Eli slightly. A move to Eli wouldn’t be a clear upgrade, at least.

    Also, this from Kacsmar probably means fixing the QB isn’t the instant answer

    Just putting this one out there: the Jaguars have allowed 40 points three times since Week 16 last year (including playoffs). That’s the most in the NFL in that span, and tied for the most since the start of 2017.

    Bortles is significantly more mobile than Eli, plus there isn’t a WR as talented Beckham in Jacksonville, either. If Manning went to the Jaguars, it would just be the same parade of excuses, just with different names – “Fournette’s not totally healthy, so Eli’s not getting the help he needs, Westbrooks not a real #1 receiver, Josh Wells can’t block anyone, etc”

    Given his past, you’d think Hill would be on the permanent shitlist with Deadspin. When it comes to taking a shot at the Patriots and their fans, though, I guess choking and punching out a pregnant woman can be ignored.

    When Coughlin leaves a place, the narrative has always been “players can breath easy for once, no more 5 minutes early is late.” etc.  Probably flipped here- “Bortles may suck, but at least I don’t have to hear Coach, Archie on line 2 50 times a day”

    Jacksonville convinced themselves to a man that if they beat the it would all click into place for them and it would be smooth sailing to a #1 or #2 seed. A month later they’ve gone 1-3 while the Pats have gone 3-1. They don’t even look like a candidate for ‘Team X” anymore. The only thing that will keep them in the playoff hunt is the crap-tastic division they play in.

    But there’s positively no way those fans knew about his past.  Uh uh.  Not a chance.  They’re just typical drunk piece of shit Massholes.  Besides, they got married, so it couldn’t have been that bad!  And at least he didn’t commit murder like that Patriots guy!

    And how could we forget this one? Harmon would have clobbered Kearse not that many seasons before this happened and it would have been 100% legal. Instead he goes out of his way to not touch him.
