    Sean Payton Tests Positive

    Yes. This. Obviously this is new and unprecedented so we're all learning how to handle it. However this statement above is why it is irresponsible to report on the death rate being high (over 3%). The only people being tested (that aren't rich and famous) are the most severe cases of COVID19. There are so many people who have it and recover but they aren't part of the statistics because they were never confirmed cases. Its like saying the death rate for breast cancer is 78% because that's what it is for stage 4 breast cancer (and those are the only types of cases they are confirming) but in reality the death rate of breast cancer as a whole is actually only 9%.

    Browns sign safety Andrew Sandejo

    Tour already told you what moneyball was. You just don't want to accept that answer as it doesn't line up with what you think moneyball is.

    Myles Garrett Reinstated

    I do too and honestly it's likely a lot to do with the fact he's a brown. However there are other reasons. He seems to be a humble high character guy other than this incident. Secondly the fact the nfl didnt say they have audio and they didn't hear anything. In fact they said there was no audio of the altercation at all. Every offensive guard wears mics during games to pick up field sound/cadence. Even if they weren't close enough that would mean out of all the parabolic mics on the field/sideline not a single one of them was pointed at Rudolph and Garrett. I just find that very hard to believe there was absolutely no audio of the altercation. All that said until proven otherwise it will and should be viewed by most that Garrett just flew off the handle.

    Browns To Announce Berry as GM

    If true that's the best part. All coaches and GMs have been around long enough that they know what to say. It is about if they can (or do) actually execute what they are saying.

    Kobe Bryant Killed in Helicopter Crash

    I didnt bring it up originally buddy. Someone else did and instead of you just saying this isn't the time for that discussion and leaving it at that you had to continue on and defend him because you are admittedly a "kobe guy". You participated the discussion and opened it up even more. In neither a Kobe guy or Kobe hater. I respect him as an athlete and basketball player but I'm not going to blindly defend him or criticize him like a fanboy or hater. The young woman literally said that is why she didn't testify. It's not my opinion you can find it many articles. She felt as if there wasn't a reason because she wasn't getting fair treatment from the courts. Lastly if a man says I feel it was consensual but I can see why she would feel it wasn't that is admitting guilt to an extent (which is why it was stated she's not allowed to use this statement in civil case). If one person legitimately feels it isn't consensual than it is rape no matter what the other person says.

    Kobe Bryant Killed in Helicopter Crash

    She refused to testify after her name was released (by the court) illegally 3 different times and after her rape kit was illegally released (by the court) to 7 different news outlets. She knew she was not getting a fair trial.
  7. I didn't think the cop smelled alcohol. I thought he said he smelled marijuana (side note marijuana burned and marijuana in a bookbag have distinct different smells). If he doesn't smell alcohol on Kareem then I don't consider it preferential treatment to not do a field sobriety test especially if cop distinguished the marijuana smell to be that of the unburned kind, and a lot of cops are "trained" to notice the difference.

    Kobe Bryant Killed in Helicopter Crash

    I agree it's not the time to bring up Colorado but since you went into it further than just saying it's not the time I myself will dive a little deeper. I recall part of the settlement was he had to admit to doing it. Kobe had "mamba mentality" and when it came to competition he was a killer. He's not going to settle a civil case to not have to go through any more. That is completely against who Kobe was as a person. “First, I want to apologize directly to the young woman involved in this incident. I want to apologize to her for my behavior that night and for the consequences she has suffered in the past year. Although this year has been incredibly difficult for me personally, I can only imagine the pain she has had to endure. I also want to apologize to her parents and family members, and to my family and friends and supporters, and to the citizens of Eagle, Colorado. I also want to make it clear that I do not question the motives of this young woman. No money has been paid to this woman. She has agreed that this statement will not be used against me in the civil case. Although I truly believe this encounter between us was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did. After months of reviewing discovery, listening to her attorney, and even her testimony in person, I now understand how she feels that she did not consent to this encounter." Kobe literally says he understands why she feels she did not consent to sex. If the female didn't consent in her mind it's rape. Kobe saying he gets why she says she did not consent must mean there was merit to the reasoning.

    Quarterback Carousel

    Sorry I was at work on my last break. Another reason players don't like to be franchised is while they are paid well it may keep them from getting as lucrative as a second or third contract. Just like a rookie wants to get to their second contract because that's where the big bucks comes in, all players want to get to their next contract as soon as possible while playing as well as possible. Franchise tagging delays that player from their 2nd or 3rd or extreme cases 4th contract. For example let's say the browns tag baker in his 6th year after his rookie deal expires. He's tagged for one year (if not two) then signs a 5 year deal. Hopefully for us browns fans he is still doing well but that puts him going into his 11th or 12th year. He's not likely to get a great deal at that point in his career unless he is playing phenomenally. If he's in his 10th year (no tagging) he's way more likely to earn a pretty decent third contract. Let's say in both situations in his 9th year he is a top 10 qb. In situation where he hasn't been tagged he's going to get another 4 to 5 year deal that pays him well. In the situation where he has been tagged for 2 years he still has to maintain that level for 2 more years to get the same deal. Typically skills go down as you get older so it's normally harder to play at that level in years 11 and 12. Also a 4th contract is more likely at year 14 than year 16. That being said being tagged for two years worked out wonderfully for Kirk cousins.

    Quarterback Carousel

    It's better to pay him as a top 2.5 qb for one year to make sure what you have in him than to pay him 15-20 mil a year for 5 years and find out this year was a fluke or flash in the pan season. As someone else said players want stability of a longer term deal without worrying about getting injured during a year where you are tagged and your value dropping significantly. There are other reasons why most don't like being tagged that I'll dive into later if you're really interested.

    OBJ underwent surgery on core.

    So in your first statement you make it sound like there's no way hes going for surgery if it's a soft tissue injury essentially degrading a soft tissue injury. Then follow it up with saying how they hurt more than bone injuries and a statement about "soft tissue" injuries are not minor. Where exactly did dbone say a soft tissue injury is a minor injury? The only person that appears to even hint at soft tissue injuries being minor is yourself with the if you have surgery it's not soft tissue injury remark. Also tearing a muscle would be considered a soft tissue injury as muscles tendons and ligaments are soft tissues. Whether you chip, fracture, break, or shatter a bone it's a skeletal injury. Just have whether to sprain, strain, tear, or shred a muscle it is still an injury to a soft tissue (therefore a soft tissue injury?)

    Stefanski Introductory Press Conference

    And Carson palmer had his best season as a qb when Freddie was qb coach. Then when he was "demoted" from qb to rb coach (they're all position coaches whether its db lbs dl wr te ol rb or qb coach I don't really see one as a significant step up over the other) a guy named David Johnson burst on the scene.

    OBJ Continues to be OBJ

    I wouldn't call what Myles Garrett did a distraction. It was a bonehead dumbass decision on the field during the game. To me distractions happen off the playing field whether it be on the sidelines proposing to field goal nets or things like this (just using OBJ for continuity sake figure if I do it enough maybe the browns will give a coach and GM a chance for once). For the record I have no issue with what OBJ did last night being it was fake money. Hell if he gave real money to joe burrow I wouldn't even be mad as he is draft eligible. I do agree though that Myles Garrett incident deflated the season but I just don't classify it as a distraction. An injury could derail a season just the same as a suspension with a player fighting for extra yards late in an already decided game or even going at 60% in said game but that doesn't make it a distraction. Distractions don't usually derail seasons. They are minor incidences.

    Stefanski Introductory Press Conference

    Freddie did say before the season and week after week during the season about using playmakers more getting them involved more. Its very common that a coach says he's going to get the ball into his playmakers hands. Every coach will say it not every coach succeeds at it. I don't put a ton of stock in what these guys say in press conferences. They are coached up on what to expect and say. Outside of troll questions from grossi and mkc they get tossed meatballs. Also Freddie hung on at one organization (cardinals) for 12 years under multiple regimes. So Freddie in turn left a good enough impression to be a holdover.
