Why roast
This might br a great pick. Could be a bust.
Nobody knows till about 5 years down the road
What were the initial reports when Tom Brady was drafted??????????



Giants could have traded down, still got him and picked up extra chips. Same thing last year. They took a RB with #2 pick in draft when he would have been there at 4 or 5.

I follow college FB closely and was unaware of Daniel Jones -never heard of him - until he floated up the draft boards recently. He does not have a cannon for an arm and he is not mobile.

Dwayne Haskins, the Ohio State QB, was available to be picked and was ranked universally as the #2 QB in the draft, with some preferring him to Kyler Murray. I think the Giants like Daniel Jones for his intelligence - an attribute that sportscasters tiptoe around.

And sometimes, you know very quickly if a QB is a bust or great - it often does not take 5 years. Pat Mahomes, Baker Mayfield, Carson Wentz are great. Once, the pre-draft question was: Peyton Manning or Ryan Leaf? They were drafted 1-2. And it very quickly became apparent who was who.
Sometimes, people are just a bottomless mystery. And, after all, this is just a sh*tty little forum in the sun-less backwaters of the online world.

really interesting - Michael Lewis, an author who usually writes about the stock market has a podcast which looks at what's happening with NBA referees and how it is similar to what's happening in other parts of the public where people have jobs similar to referees

he says, and I agree with him - that NBA refs have received more training and are now more neutral and aren't favoring the stars - letting them get away with stuff such as traveling, and that is infuriating the stars who are used to privilege and they are striking back powerfully in social media. the refs are getting better yet they are made to look like they are getting worse

a perfect example is the 2nd vid - James Harden went crying everywhere yesterday about the no call at the end of the game on his 3 pt. attempt. if you watch the vid at :23 you can clearly see that he jumps forward into the defender. he doesn't deserve to go to the line for that. he's a crybaby. it was a good no call.

He had an ERA over 6 before the game and it was his second career no-no.

One of the most exciting shots I have ever seen
As the play developed, I just did not think it was going in. I thought OT
Just incredible as it bounced 4 times on the rim
Very exciting.

Good article. Thanks for sharing. I like Titans Under a lot but canít find it anywhere at 8.5 but only 8. Did your lines come from a live place?

ETA: I see Odds Shark link now. Think some of those are stale.
