    I think he'd be a good fit for the Sox. I don't think they'd hire him, though.

    Montana was 17-29 in the game, and it appears he played the whole game. He played 15/16 games that season. 49ers lost to the Giants in the Wild Card game in 1985.

    https://www.footballdb.com/games/boxscore.html?gid=1985101304 1985 Bears played the 49ers with Montana at QB. Bears won 26-10. I'm pretty sure that was Fridge's debut as a blocking back, too.

    Chris Conte just made another team's highlight film again. Not sorry he's not running around aimlessly for the Bears anymore. Also, not sure how the stiff arm he was on the receiving end of isn't a "hands to the face" penalty.

    I heard this on the radio today: The Diamondbacks were in 1st place on April 1, May 1, June 1, July 1, August 1, and September 1. They were eliminated from the playoffs yesterday. i feel like I've been there a couple of times as a Sox fan, but that is a brutal ending to a promising season.

    Does Baez' "World's Best Tagger" ability translate to the other side of 2B? Asking for all baseball fans. I'd hate to lose that.

    I had a team a few years ago that finished the season in 2nd place in total overall points (maybe 10 points behind the points leader). His record: 11-2 My record: 5-8 It seemed like I either had the highest points every week or played the guy who did. I didn't make the playoffs, but my team dominated in total points every week during the playoffs, too. It was my big money league, too. Very frustrating.

    Yeah, I don't really care about #1, either. Just an observation. #2 interests me because quite a few players have filed lawsuits against the league, and I don't think they are all concussion related, so it's interesting that the league doesn't have a more uniform safety policy. Not that knee pads would necessarily protect against knee injuries... #3 - thanks for the info. I figured it had something to do with the time left in the half/game, but I was never able to pin it down.

    Three things: 1) When did the untucked shirt become a thing? I remember seeing it last year, but I'm surprised the league allows it since they're crazy about the uniforms. 2) How can a league that is constantly embroiled in player safety have players basically wearing bike shorts? So many dbs, rbs, and wrs don't wear thigh pads and/or knee pads. Some of the pants don't even cover their knees. 3) What is the stop the clock rule when a player goes out of bounds? Sometimes a guy goes out and the clock stops. Other times it doesn't.

    Yeah, I agree. I've had all three in the past. I had Gurley last year and he was great. Ive had Johnson a few times (including last year). Injuries aside, I don't think there was a wrong pick. They all have some question marks. Bell has a lot of drama surrounding his walk year. Johnson has a questionable offense. And Gurley has the possible regression of a Rams team that had everything go right last year.

    Bell went 1st. I went with David Johnson.

    I have the second pick in a PPR/non-keeper league. So everyone is available. Who should I take?

    2018 Attendance Thread

    https://www.yahoo.com/sports/10-degrees-baseballs-attendance-woes-mlb-owners-rightfully-spooked-031815621.html?bcmt=1 Whenever I watch the highlights of all but a handful of teams, it's apparent that attendance is down throughout the league. Lots of 2/3 full stadiums. I suppose prices will eventually drop, but who knows?
