62.02/ A custom on #YomKippur is to wear a kittel, an all white garment that has ambivalent symbolism: men wear one under their wedding canopy and they are also buried in it. I mentioned to a physician friend that it can also be seen as "Jewish scrubs."
62.03/ "But life is ironic" is just boss-level shade. I mean, I have my theological differences with the pontiff, but I can imagine we see eye-to-eye about anti-vaxxers.(h.t. @dick_nixon)

1/ One more #NFL thing before the Day of Atonement. Last night's #MNF was very satisfying as a #Steelers fan. The ending of the game was nuts and I want to reproduce the nutty live-texts I sent to my sleeping son, not expecting it to become a saga of silliness.
2/ [11:31 PM] 55 yard FG to send it into overtime!

{Little did I know that this would be the least surprising thing of overtime. I should also add that many people expected BAL to go to the Superbowl and the Raiders to get a top 5 pick in the 2022 draft} Screencap from the ESPN app, score 27-27.
3/ [11:40 PM]: RAIDERS WIN
[11:41 PM]: wait hold up
[11:42 PM]: CORRECTION. will be at the half yard-line

{It was so exciting to think LV would get the ball and then just drive down the field and score. Of course, it couldn't be that simple. TD taken back.} ESPN screencap. 7:22 in OT, score still 27-27, LV in red zon

61.02/ I am a fan of the professional sport of American Football and, as a child of Pittsburgh, a particular avid supporter of the #Steelers. I apologize ahead of time for some intemperate comments that may be made during the season which could be non-sequitur for non-NFLers.
61.03/ From last night at the #Mets-Yankees game, a scandal that Fox's cameras lingered on that hateful flag. Ironically it symbolizes the way 9-11 was perverted by corrupt bad-actors from day one.

60.02/ From last night, mourning the passing of a #Steelers legend and - from what I hear - an all-around good guy, baal-chesed, #TunchIlkin
60.03/ It's absolutely crucial to hear what these conservatives think of women: as "host bodies" of a fetus. Women are objects to them. Dehumanization is the first step to the worst atrocities.

Bradshaw was the #1 pick in 1970.
Things weren’t easy at the start, but by 1978 he was in his prime.
On and off the field.

Fundado em 1919, o Green Bay Packers é uma das franquias mais antigas e vencedoras da NFL. Disputando a NFC North, Packers é a terceira franquia mais antiga da NFL. Franquia NÃO tem dono, pertecendo à comunidade local
Sua casa é o Lambeau Field, com capacidade pra 81.440 torcedores. Começou a ser construído em 1956, sendo inaugurado em setembro de 1957. Apesar de ser o estádio mais tradicional da NFL, curiosamente o Lambeau Field nunca sediou um Super Bowl
Os torcedores normalmente são conhecidos como Cheeseheads. Esse termo é comumente usado como referência às pessoas do estado de Winsconsin em geral (por causa da sua produção de queijo). O nome teve origem em 1987 como insulto dos torcedores do White Sox contra Brewers na MLB

When people say, this running back has receiving upside, and that one doesn't.

What does that mean to me?

A thread by @JakesFFootball

Tag your friends who use or hate the phrase receiving upside

#nfl #NFLTwitter #fantasyfootball #football #FantasyFootballAdvice
People say I'm low on Nick Chubb. I projected out his 2020 workload for 17 games and:

275 carries. 1,400 yards. 14 TDs. 25 catches. 200 receiving yards. 0 Rec TDs. 4 Fumbles. 261 fantasy points.

That seems good, however I can see a lot of other backs passing that up.
Here's what I think of DeAndre Swift, getting used like Alvin Kamara/Austin Ekeler:

200 carries. 1,000 rushing yards. 10 Rush TDs. 65 catches. 500 receiving yards. 4 receiving TDs. 4 Fumbles. 291 fantasy points.

30 more points than Chubb. More catches, and more receiving yards

Derrick Henry is a very good running back who is getting drafted No. 3 overall in most PPR drafts.

That is way too high.

A thread by @JakesFFootball

#FantasyFootball #football #nfl #NFLTwitter #fantasyfootballadvice
Derrick Henry is coming off of a 2,000+ yard season. That's a huge season and will likely stand as the best season of his career. Why? Let's take a look at every other previous 2,000 yards rusher and what the season after their 2,000 yard season looked like.
1973 O.J. Simpson. 2,003 Yards. - in 14 games.

1974 O.J. Simpson. 1,125 Yards.

Not much changed for Simpson from one year to the next, he wasn't as efficient and didn't get as many carries. The few years after he did well again though.

Washington, Arizona, Indianapolis and Los Angeles Chargers remain under 50% vaccination for COVID-19 as of today, per a source familiar with the NFL’s vaccination rates. Pittsburgh, Miami, Carolina & Denver have highest rates & are among 7 teams with at least 85% vaccinated.
Teams on the lower end of the vaccination chart face potential competitive disadvantages, especially because the #NFL doesn’t plan to cancel any games this season, per my source. Story upcoming.

Happy Birthday 89th Rosey Grier
Rosey has lived an incredible life, playing with the #Giants and #Rams
He was a great player, and an even better human.
After he got injured in ‘68 he travelled with Robert Kennedy.
Rosey was at the Ambassador hotel when Kennedy was shot.
He tackled Sirhan Sirhan, preventing any further injury.
That night stuck with Rosey for a long time
Happy Birthday Rosey Grier

According to @SleeperHQ, the last season in which a Ravens player surpassed 100 targets was 2016

Dennis Pitta: 121
Mike Wallace: 116
Steve Smith: 101

Greg Roman got back to Baltimore in 2017, ascending to OC in 2019

#nfl #fantasyfootball #nfltt
Michael Crabtree (2018) and Marquise Brown (2020) were the ones since 2017 who reached exact 100 targets in the period for Baltimore
Ravens' players with most targets since 2011:

Un lunghissimo thread che ho scritto invece di fare la lavatrice e pulire sotto al divano
E’ interessante quanto è mediaticamente accaduto fra il 30 aprile ed il 1° maggio sui principali schermi del nostro Paese.
Sto ovviamente parlando del monologo di #pioeamedeo e dell’intervento di #Fedez al concerto del #PrimoMaggio
Quella che è andata in scena infatti è probabilmente una delle faglie che attraverserà la società e la politica italiana del futuro. In 24 ore di tv si sono scontrati due Paesi opposti per consapevolezze e prima ancora per anagrafe

🚨30 Days, 30 Prospects🚨

#12 - Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

Everyone is looking for the next Tyreek Hill... fact is nobody is Tyreek, but Waddle is an incredible playmaker in his own right. More than just a speedster, Waddle shows off why he can play ball at the next level.⬇️
Waddle is truly a weapon that keeps defenses honest. The entire first half he's running this crossing route, now in the 3rd quarter he goes to run the crosser but turns it up field as soon as the safety bites. He creates so much separation and it's an easy jog for a score.
Even though Waddle is great at creating separation, he doesn't always need it. He's not a guy that only wins on speed, he can hold his own up in the air. Here he makes the hard catch in double coverage down the field, leaping into contact while taking full strides.

#13 - Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

5' 7" and only 181 pounds, but can squat 600lbs. That about sums it up. Moore has impressed since the moment he stepped on the college field, will that success translate to the NFL? ⬇️
His first career touchdown, Moore is more than a gadget player, he's a WR. He runs a nice crossing route here into open space and catches the ball in a hard spot. His hands look good here & overall, though he does have some concentration drops where he moves too quick.
One of the most electric playmakers to get on the field, Moore is always a threat to take a play to the house. Used often on sweeps and screens, the Purdue offense centered around getting Moore the ball. He can outrun just about anybody on the defense.

On this play Pete Werner lines up over the RG, engages the Oline before trailing the QB on the draw. Pete forces a key fumble in the 4th quarter! #NFL #NFLDraft #KroenickFilm
Against the run Pete Werner is a tough tackler. Here he engages the blocker but is able to stop the RB in his tracks for a minor gain. #NFL #NFLDraft #KroenickFilm

This angle shows a better view of the throw and how great it was. #KroenickFilm #NFLDraft #NFL
Before I made a comment about Mac Jones going through his reads. Here he goes to his 2nd read and tries fitting the ball to his TE. Very accurate but leads to a INT. #KroenickFilm #NFL #NFLDraft
Love this anticipation throw from Mac Jones, sees Harris going inside of the defender and throws it before he’s open in stride. Leads to a TD!
