    2021 NFL Season Thread

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/playbyplay/_/gameId/281012001 That was 11 seconds remaining...and getting the kickoff just to the 44 was giving up way too much ground. Most importantly, Elam and artificial turf with no wind, cold, snow and the ball would be ideal.

    In the Dome or outside? Massive difference with mid Jan weather conditions.

    Bills' defensive numbers hugely assisted by having two rookie QB's and Tua in the same division. Tredavious White being out wasn't any worse than the loss of Mathieu to the Chiefs. You just can't give up 30 yards to Kelce in that situation. If Mahomes had just one play even from the 30-35 yard line it would have been so much tougher to execute in that situation. Still don't understand why they didn't try to get more pressure...by dropping 7, because if you flush him out of the pocket the play length would have likely forced a throw into the end zone.

    Basically it would be like if the Field of Dreams game ended with Tim Anderson instead tying the game, then the White Sox being allowed to bat again the top of the next inning (Yankees with no chance to even bat again) and if they score again it’s still a walk off and the game is deemed over. Forgot the same thing happened when the Pats came back against the Falcons and went into OT...two years in a row for Brady with good fortune on his side. Not that he needed much. “When it’s grim, be the Grim Reaper,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he told his quarterback as the fourth quarter waned. “ 'And go get it.’ “He did that. He made everyone around better, which he’s great at.” kcstar.com/sports

    Sounds like "Name that Tune"...then you will really have a battle of prevent defenses. Feels a bit too gimmicky.

    Hard to say what is the best...the first four days of an NCAA basketball tournament with tons of upsets or this. Would have been all four visiting teams each winning by three points...had the last 13 seconds gone the way they do 99.8% of the time.

    Exact same thing happened to Mahomes three years ago...with the state of offenses today, they might want to reconfigure the overtime rules to make them more like NCAA style. Or just play the full period out.

    Lol. Iowa doesn't have this much offense in an entire 12 game schedule... The BBC commenters are going crazy, including Shaun Gayle. Incredulous they kicked the ball into end zone instead of putting the ball into play short.

    Wow...the whole city of Buffalo must be in disbelief.

    Bucs really missed Antonio Brown and Godwin...almost felt sorry for Brady at end of first half. Before the Rams almost flubbed it away. Rams might be the most talented team overall, but hard to go against Mahomes if the Chiefs get back again. (Although those four points given away by Butker will likely come back to bite them.) Still, KC just has so much speed at the skill positions... And boom responds Buffalo. Might need the best weekend of playoff football in decades, if ever.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    From Athletic.com headline... "We are just 26 days from the start of spring training and 70 from Opening Day, two dates that feel as artificial as ever. It’s possible we don’t see much of spring training, and as each day passes, the likelihood of missing games soars — something our Ken Rosenthal says will be a stain on MLB commissioner Rob Manfred’s entire career. Ken articulates something that’s largely been missing from the overall narrative: how lopsided this negotiation really is in favor of owners. There is a tendency for all of us, media included, to both-sides a dispute like this, when it’s far from even. Here’s Ken: “The players actually occupy something of a high ground in this dispute, perhaps even in the view of certain fans who continue to view them as spoiled and overpaid. Many fans historically side with owners, who earn far more money than players, stay in the game longer and make their financial records public only when legally required, as is the case with the publicly traded companies that own the Braves and Blue Jays.” Manfred, who made his name negotiating collective bargaining agreements, will only face more pressure as the days dwindle. The league took 43 days to offer any proposal after locking the players out. If baseball has a shortened season, fans will turn away. For now, Manfred must somehow satisfy both large-market and small-market owners without, oh, tanking the entire sport. The players, meanwhile, just want to recoup some of what they lost in the last CBA. Good luck, commissioner.

    Which baseball movie has the greatest Hollywood ending?

    Someone in the article mentioned the last thirty minutes...although technically not a pure baseball movie.

    Which baseball movie has the greatest Hollywood ending?

    Is that about Nick Madrigal or the one with Tom Selleck?

I guess Field of Dreams was inevitable with the Yankees/Sox game this past summer and then announcing it will be a yearly addition to the MLB schedule. Off the top of my head, you have The Sandlot, Little Big League, The Bad News Bears, Major League (especially the first one with the suicide squeeze down the 3B line and Berenger's character collapsing after lunging for the 1B bag), Bang the Drum Slowly, Eight Men Out, Bull Durham, The Pride of the Yankees, Moneyball, 42, etc. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Battered_Bastards_of_Baseball I found this one searching online, has really positive reviews and had never even heard of it....
