  1. Hope everyone feels better real soon.
  2. I feel rather sorry for Amon Ra St Brown, he's had some really good games lately, probably deserved this more IMHO.
  3. This, folks, is why you shouldn't do drugs. M'kay?
  4. (Apologies in advance if this gets "political" - it's not intended to rile up anything, just presenting facts from over here in the UK ). I know US and UK are very different situations, but what has played out here in the UK has showed lately that things are turning. Initially the restrictions that were brought in - lockdowns etc - were driven through by government without requiring a vote in parliament. National safety, required immediate action, and so on. But in short order it was agreed (forced, perhaps?) that all future government rules needed to be approved by a vote in parlia
  5. Hope everyone who is suffering from this thing feels better soon ... I'm on day 5 and doing a lot better but still seriously low on energy. Can't remember the last time anything had me ill for this time, but grateful it's been mild / moderate at worst. I know that's not been the case for everyone. Hardest part was of it all was having my son come down with it too, fortunately he has the energy of youth and has got through it better than I have. He's also quite pleased that it'll likely delay his return to school next week. Here's to hoping everyone stays well and that maybe the Je
  6. Flu vaccines are as much a factor of human input as anything else. Flu comes in so many strains. Each year's vaccine is produced based on what variants are expected to be circulating that year - there's no "one size fits all". The better the prediction, the better the vaccine will work overall, but if you guess wrong it's not going to be a lot of help. Some years here in the UK the effectiveness is estimated about 40-50% (that is to say, it prevented about 40-50% of the cases that would have happened without a vaccine). But one year recently it was only about 15% efficacy. It wasn't that
  7. I had both together - tested +ve on a lateral flow Sunday (followed up with a PCR Monday). Watching the Jets game was one of the few things that actually made me feel better. Crazy world or what? As for lateral flows - not sure where the 50/50 stuff is coming from - studies have presented figures of 80%+: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/2021/oct/lateral-flow-tests-detect-most-people-risk-transmitting-covid-19#:~:text=The peer-reviewed paper%2C published,infectious when using the test.
  8. It's amazing what you can do with a bit of red crayon ... "oh shoot, sorry guys, looks like I'll be spending Christmas without you this year"
  9. Pro ready is a blessing and a curse. Josh Rosen was the most "pro ready" QB in his class, for example.
  10. Sad to think there are some here who will be happy to see a smiling Brady on Sunday while fantasizing about draft picks. Personally I'd like nothing more than a "meaningless win" and making TBs route through the playoffs that bit harder. I realize the chances are slim to none, but that's football. Go Jets!

  11. Very true. He may improve a whole bunch next year, maybe just a little, may stay the same ... and he may plummet off the face of the earth. I'm hopeful - but not convinced. Can't afford to be hitting the big reset button again in one or two years' time.
  12. Of course - then everyone who hates on Zac can continue hating on Zach when it doesn't work.
  13. Probably the same video but this has even made it to the BBC Sport website here in the UK:
  14. Doesn't get a good kick return - sucks. Does get a good kick return - sucks, it was all because of the other 10 guys. Not sure what you mean about "not having games like this every week" ... there isn't one kick returner in the league that does. Do you know how many kick returns for TDs there have been this year? Eight. BB has 1 of those. Do you know how many players have had 3 returns 40+ yards this year? Three. BB is one of those. Do you know how many players have had 20 returns of 20+ yards this year? Four. BB is one of those. Do you know how many players have a kick return average o
  15. Thanks. Symptoms very minor, but having to isolate is going to be a pain. And of course, it's during my time off work.
  16. But I keep getting told that late season wins mean nothing. It doesn't translate to future success in any way. So it's pointless.
  17. But they're out of playoff contention so all their recent wins are meaningless. Therefore they are a worse team than us.
  18. A few random thoughts to add the conversation / carnage: We keep saying we want Zach to improve. He needs experience to improve. Experience comes from playing and succeeding. He isn't going to suck tremendously for 14 games then suddenly "ping, I'm a great QB". It just doesn't happen. Winning is the best sort of experience to build on. Just my opinion. Zach was ripped apart for throwing all those INTs in his earlier games. He has thrown zero in the last 3 games, and only 2 in the last 5 (since his return from injury). Compare that to the 9 INTs in 6 games before his injury and as
  19. Just wait for his bong video to come out. [emoji12] Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  20. Sadly we're more Detroit than Dallas when it comes to transformation via high draft picks.
  21. So we're basing our "tank for trophies" strategy on something that last happened in 1989 / 1990 / 1991? You do realize how long ago that was, don't you?
  22. In another alternate universe the Jets stand pat at 6 in 2018 and possibly end up with Josh Rosen
  23. On a day when our top4 WRs were Cole, Mims, Berrios, Smith ... Berrios - 5 / 37 / 6 targets Cole - 2/ 25 / 2 targets Smith - 0 / 0 / 1 target Mims - 0 / 0 / 2 targets The problem is clearly (a) Braxton Berrios. One day the Denzel Mims / Jeff Smith type of player will not be on this team.
