So we all know that this particular collapse was staged, right? Good, glad we are starting to learn how they play us to create controversy, fill up the search hits with garbage, and cause distraction away from something else. The truth. #DamarHamlim
Hundreds of athletes have dropped dead FROM THE VACCINES so these demonic nutcases had to do their thing, again. I am sure these numbers are conservative: theburningplatform.com/2021/12/16/318…

How do we know this is a psy-op? Its SO easy when you have eyes to see, almost no effort required...
...plain as the nose on your face. They tell us with their signs, of course. The only standing player when they were dramatically praying was 33? The sketchy, unmarked ambulance? This smiling face after having your heart stop twice, intubated and on loads of heavy drugs?

Dr. Timothy Pritts from the UC College of Medicine says there has been “substantial improvement” with Damar Hamlin over the past 24 hours.

“He is beginning to awaken and it appears his neurological condition and function is intact.”

Calls it a turning point in ongoing care.
UC Health physician Dr. William Knight IV says: “It’s been a long and difficult road for the past few days. He has been very sick and has made a fairly remarkable improvement.” Now is showing positive signs in vital signs and organ recovery. Workup ongoing regarding the cause.
Dr. Knight says immediate recognition of a serious situation and loss of pulse by the #Bills medical staff was critical, allowing Hamlin to get immediate bystander CPR and defibrillation. “We cannot credit their team enough.”

NFL chief medical officer Allen Sills says commotio cordis is a possible explanation for Damar Hamlin’s cardiac arrest but further investigation is required before they make a conclusion.
NFL EVP Troy Vincent overcome with emotion right now. “There was only one policy that mattered (Monday) evening. And that was the emergency action plan by the first responders. … That emergency action plan was executed to perfection.”
More from Troy Vincent, through tears: “That evening was outstanding. You gave our brother Damar another day to live, a chance to fight.”

ER doc & CPR professor here - with a second thread tonight to explain what comes next, AFTER CPR....

it seems that Damar Hamlin is alive, in critical condition... so what does this mean, & what happens now?

a new thread, below 🧵

#Bills #DamarHamlin #CPR @NFL @nflnetwork
2/8

in my first thread earlier tonight, I briefly explained CPR.

When CPR is successful, and heart function is restored, patients require specialized ICU care to support organ and brain recovery - this is known as POST-ARREST CARE.

It is slow and careful work.
3/8

One of the keys to post-arrest care is TARGETED TEMPERATURE MANAGEMENT (TTM) - the use of technologies to avoid fever and precisely control body (and hopefully brain) temperature.

It can look like this - cooling pads hooked up to a coolant machine:

NFL executive VP of football operations Troy Vincent says on a conference call with media says neither head coach nor any players spoke about resuming the game. “It was really about Damar. … Look, I’ve never seen anything like it, so immediately my player hat went on.”
Troy Vincent: “How do you resume play after you’ve seen such a traumatic event occur in front of you real time? That’s the way we were thinking about it, Commussioner (Roger Goodell) and I.”
Troy Vincent is not sure where the 5-minute warmup period came from: “There was no time period for the players to get warmed up. … It never crossed our mind to talk about warming up to resume play. That’s ridiculous. That’s insensitive. That’s not a place we should ever be in.”

Terrifying scene: #Bills safety Damar Hamlin has been down on the field for more than 10 minutes after a hit.

The medical staff is administering CPR to the 24-year-old. Players from the Bills and Bengals are clearly distraught, and many are in tears.

🙏
#Bills safety Damar Hamlin was transported off the field via ambulance. We’ll provide updates as available.
The #Bengals and #Bills have agreed to play the remainder of this game following a five-minute warm-up period.

This mornings rant is dedicated to all the folks doing #community designed policy. I see MANY ppl talk about this in #copolitics & very FEW tangibly do it successfully.

Join me in yesterdays presentation to @DePaulU students & some good local examples - a 🧵
Whether it’s small p or big P #policy how we design initiatives, how we write bills, how we engage testifiers, how we build coalitions & organize - can perpetuate inequities we’re trying to disrupt. #copilitics

white supremacy cultural characteristics love policy & advocacy
We’ve got incredible #leaders that stray away from white supremacy cultural characteristics in advocacy & lead with #integrity

Like the @ColoradoSPC @elephant_circle @S2SSisters @9to5Colorado @DenverTaskForce#community designed #leadership & #policy [great CO give list]

A quick thread on the Christian McCaffrey trade market for the #Panthers
1. A handful of teams are interested but not pushing hard (yet) to deal for McCaffrey. The interest has been more of a “checking in” with Carolina after the initial #Bills report to see if he’s actually being shopped. At the moment the #Panthers are in a listening mode with CMC.
2. The whole #Bills dalliance with McCaffrey stemmed back to when Buffalo called about him in the offseason. But that never went anywhere and it was totally dead until this point in the season. Even now, the Bills are in more of a monitoring mode than anything. A “call us” mode.

A couple of years ago I published a weekly matchups thread with charts for each game, and this year I'm bringing it back! While I'll normally share on Thursdays, I'm so excited for Week 1 to start that I'm sharing this week's today!

Let's have a great season, everyone! 🏈
Before I start, here's a description of the 3 charts:
1. Comparing OFF vs. DEF key stat rankings
2. Player distribution of 2021/22 DK points
3. Player % of team rushing/receiving expected fpts

In addition to these charts, I'll also include one stat nugget relevant to that game!
#Bills @ #Rams (+2.5)
Game total: 52
BUF implied team total: 27.25
LA implied team total: 24.75
Key stat: Buffalo's defensive pass EPA/play went from -0.112 (2nd) with Tre'Davious White (weeks 1-12) to 0.035 (15th) without him (weeks 13-20). He's out Thursday night.

Brandon Beane: “Ultimately, this is a legal situation. We don’t know all the facts, and that’s what makes it hard. But at this time, we just think it’s the best move to move on from Matt…”

#Bills officially cut the punter.
.@haprusak asks Beane why now is the right time to cut Araiza: “with the serious nature of the allegations, we don’t have the means to put all of the facts together.” #Bills
#Bills Beane asked how transparent Araiza was with team: “Matt gave us his version of events. And that’s where it’s at.”

#Bills McDermott opens up regarding Matt Araiza allegations, calling them “extremely serious” — “It’s not a situation that I take lightly whatsoever … We have work to do to continue to figure this thing out here, and we’re going to do that.”
“My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to people involved,” #Bills McDermott says re: Araiza.

Asked if coach is satisfied with the organization’s response? “We have work to do.”

He “will not get in to details” on why he called Araiza “a great kid” on @PardonMyTake this week.
When asked about the #Bills previous “examination” of the allegations against Araiza, McDermott says “we have more work to be done.”

Coach was unaware that the punter would be putting out a statement mid-game vs Panthers

Caught up with some AFC defensive players at the Pro Bowl to get their thoughts on what it’s like to try to stop Josh Allen. Here’s what they had to say…#Bills (thread)
Myles Garrett: He was already that guy and people were like well he has to do it again, and he showed them. I’ve never seen someone lead a perfect game as a quarterback. I don’t think he let his team down at all in the playoffs #Bills
T.J. Watt: I think he's one of those quarterbacks that can do things through the air. Obviously he's got a great arm and he can also escape in the rush lanes. So it's a challenge for the guys in the back end. It’s also a tough challenge for the guys in the front. #Bills

** Post Week 10 // Pre-Week 11 Thought Dump **

Coming off another wild week of upsets.

Among NFL best records:

8-2 #Titans have lost to 2-7 #Jets
7-2 #Cowboys to 5-5 #Broncos
7-3 #Rams to 4-5 #49ers
6-3 #Bills to 2-7 #Jaguars
6-3 #Bucs to 3-6 #WFT
6-3 #Ravens to 3-7 #Dolphins
Random Takes & Notes:

- Standing by Rhamondre Stevenson as #Patriots best RB with Wk 10 as confirmation bias
- Rashod Bateman hasn’t hurt Marquise Brown whatsoever; The Real Hollywood Avging 13 targets since Bateman’s return
- Jeff Wilson SZN if Eli Mitchell (finger) sits v Jags
- Josh Allen used play action on 57% of Week 10 drops — nearly 2x the highest rate of any team all last year. He destroyed, of course
- #Bills backfield has devolved into 3-way RBBC. Avoid
- Long as #Bears keep letting Justin Fields run, he’ll produce. Back2Back top-10 FF starts

** Post-Week 5 // Pre-Week 6 #fantasyfootball thread **

Weeks 1-5 reinforced that one of the top commonalities between real life & fantasy football is we’re all trying to win battle of attrition.

In season-long FF, churning the end of benches is critical to winning that war.
QB Thoughts:

My personal Top 6 in NFL MVP race through 5 games:

Lamar Jackson
Kyler Murray
Tom Brady
Justin Herbert
Dak Prescott
Josh Allen

* In sports betting, this looks like a buy-low window for Patrick Mahomes, whose odds have lengthened amid #Chiefs early struggles.
RB Thoughts:

* Elijah Mitchell plays @ different speed than Trey Sermon

* AJ Dillon gonna be solid RB2/flx next 2 months

* I way undersold Zack Moss. Growing role + #Bills legit DEF + Charmin-soft schedule put Moss in great spot

* Must-stash: Marlon Mack & Rhamondre Stevenson
