Not sure anybody cares about this one:
Quote:

The New England Patriots have more bad injury news at the tight end position as Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that Aaron Hernandez will likely miss the team's OTAs and minicamp this offseason after undergoing shoulder surgery.

The Patriots began "Phase One" of their offseason program on Monday and have OTA dates scheduled for May 20-21, May 28-30, June 3-4 and June 6-7. The team's mandatory minicamp closes out their offseason program from June 11-13.

News of Hernandez's potential absence this offseason comes one week after a Boston Herald report that Rob Gronkowski may not be ready for the start of the 2013 regular season due to an infection in his twice-broken left forearm. Gronkowski is likely to require an additional surgery on the forearm, which could keep him out through the start of the regular season.

Neither TE is durable but both gave it a go for the season despite injuries.

In the grand scheme of things surrounding NE and Boston, I don't care!!

RIP Pat Summerall.

A very prominent voice during my "growing up" years. One of the best. :p

Totally agree with you. And his voice on the Madden game made it so much more realistic. RIP.

It amazes me how all these "experts" keep mocking a TE to the Falcons in the 1st round. IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! If it does, Paul will eat my hat. I would love for the Falcons to trade down maybe get next year's first and swap 2nd or 3rds with a team and get Blidi Wreh-Wilson. Great name, but I think he will be a solid CB. Then get a Gavin Escobar in the 3rd round for TE.

Hearing the Falcons are trying to trade up from number 30 in the first round, and not, obviously, for a quarterback.
Peter King ‏@SI_PeterKing 21h

I am not sure who the Falcons want. Tyler Eifert makes sense. Athletic DT makes sense. They can sit at 30 and get a corner.
No, that makes no sense, Peter King. Teams are gonna be beating down the Falcons door for that 30th pick so they can take one of the QBs. Please, Dimitroff, trade down with that pick.

Some light Draft reading. I wonder if anybody is still using Jimmy Johnson's chart.

Belichick does, or he said he did 2 years ago

My bet is he has two charts, one for trading down and one for trading up.

Most likely, he said he has a chart that uses the main ethos and points system of the JJ one.

However, nowadays, with the capped salary for rookies, a lot of the early points values are lower.

If you look at Belichick's recent trades, they are all losses for the Patriots according to the points value chart.

#163 (25.8) traded for #197 (12.6), #224 (2), #235 (off chart) = 10pt loss

#62 (284) for #90 (140) and #163 (26.2) = 284 for 166.2 = 117.8pt loss

#31 (600) and 60 (300) for #25 (720) = 900 for 720 = 180pt loss

#27 (680) and #93 (128) for #21 (800) = 808 for 800 = 8pt loss

It isn't quite a failed drug test or a bad Wonderlic on the scale of things that could make one's draft stock plummet, but the reports that there was a trashed hotel room belonging to two players at the scouting combine now have two names attached to them: Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins, and Rutgers receiver Mark Harrison. The players' names were revealed by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Dan Pompei of the National Football Post was the first to report the damage, and that one of the players involved refused to make himself available to discuss it during his pro day. According to a recent Y! Sports report, most of the damage was done in the bathroom, where urine and feces were strewn around the room, and toothpaste was left on the mirror. In addition, according to National Football Scouting president Jeff Foster, who runs the scouting combine, there was trash all over the hotel room.

I hope the indoor boys from Georgia enjoy Lambeau in December...

We've got a terrible start to the season, 3 games in 10 days! Start @Washington on 9th September, then have the Chargers and Chiefs at home on the 15th and 19th. Which bright spark put those together?

That'll be us 3-0 putting the NFC East on notice after only 10 days! :lux:

sir_minty 20-04-2013 12:01 PM

Right im not sure if this is the right thread or not but after finally moving into my own gaff i want to be able to watch the games each week in reasonable quality. Ideally id like a game pass but sky tend to dump on that with the blackouts. Realistically i dont want to pay to watch the games sky pick for me and have no qualms with getting a game pass but struggle to find VPN's

My question is thus: what is the best way in UK to watch whatever games i want most easily. Should i hunt for streams? Can anyone reccomend a good VPN to get all games with a game pass? I have good internet as well so speed buffering isnt really a issue.

Many Thanks

peagle 20-04-2013 03:48 PM

Streams are available but just not great quality. Last year I bought gamepass and have a sky sports subscription and so was able to watch all of my teams's games and then often watched redzone instead of picking another. Not sure if they offer redzone all year on sky, otherwise if recommend game pass if you don't want to get both because on the rare occasion sky blacks out your team, redzone is something of a substitute.

sir_minty 20-04-2013 11:40 PM

Being a giants fan i find at least a quarter of the season isnt on Gamepass due to sky picking it up. Any VPN suggestions?
