🚑 Week 2 Injury Thread 🚑

Full write up Tuesday with @TheFFBallers

My quick, concise thoughts on each injury + what we know now 👇
#49ers RB situation:

Trey Sermon: in concussion protocol

Elijah Mitchell: R shoulder injury, team believes is a "stinger type injury"; MRI tomorrow

Ja'Mycal Hasty: Ankle injury, to be evaluated more tomorrow. Severity currently unknown
#Browns Baker Mayfield

L shoulder dislocation: Returned to the game and was effective. Will be fine moving forward but is likely to require offseason labral repair surgery. If this was his R shoulder, he'd be done for the year

@DrBiden @FLOTUS, your presence at the opening of #TokyoOlympics on July 23 will be greatly appreciated. Pls take the opportunity to talk to PM Yoshihide Suga about the ongoing slaughter of more than a thousand #dolphins in #Taiji, Japan every year.
2/10
@DrBiden @FLOTUS, being a Lifelong Educator & animal lover, you may want to know that #dolphins will be captured off #Taiji coast, Japan for 6 months starting from September 1, 2021. On inquiry, you will likely be told that this is tradition.
3/10
@DrBiden @FLOTUS, in fact, such capture of #dolphins in Japan for sale to aquariums worldwide only started in 1969 after the Flipper TV program which aired on NBC from 1964 to 1967 gave the idea that dolphins could be exploited that way.

#Whales & #dolphins are facing many manmade existential threats: depletion of food by overfishing, drop in birthrates due to industrial pollution, killing by discarded fishnets & plastics etc

Over 300,000 #whales and #dolphins are killed as bycatch in #fishnets every year. People eating #seafood is the reason that fishing trawlers go to sea & cause these deaths of whales & dolphins. #Boycott #seafood. It’s #seas #piracy

Every year at least 50 million #sharks are killed as #bycatch in commercial #fishing. 90% of sharks have been lost in the last few decades. Eating seafood contributes to the bykill of sharks and other #sealife.

March 29th, 2020 is the day Honey the #dolphin 🐬ended her life in the closed #Aquarium in which she was abandonned.

In memories of Honey, let's speak up for Honey through SNS on upcoming March 29th (JST).🌈

#NoMoreHoney Action from Japan 👉
action.animals-peace.net/sample-page/no…
Honey was captivated by #DolphinDriveHunt and after years of entertaining people, was left alone in the tank of closed #Aquarium for months and died March 29, 2020.

In Japan, dolphin show is still popular.

The new industry group, Japan Aquarium Association #JAA , must stop buying dolphins captivated from drive hunting and we must #SayNoToDolphinShows to #AbolishDolphinDriveHunt and end this cruelty.

League sources believe that #Texans QB Deshaun Watson has played his last snap for the #Texans and the #Dolphins are his preferred destination, according to @AdamSchefter and @mortreport Image
@AdamSchefter @mortreport The #Texans had a 24-0 first half lead over the #Chiefs in the playoffs a year ago [January 12, 2020]

They are now coming off a 4-12 season with no first round or second round draft pick, no Head Coach, and it seems that they soon won't have their young franchise QB.
@AdamSchefter @mortreport Chris Mortensen added that Deshaun Watson likes the culture Brian Flores has created in Miami and also that there are no state taxes there like in Texas.

Nothing is formal, still early in the off-season.

In 2018, the #49ers unveiled all-white throwbacks into the team's uniform rotation. It is a tribute to the 1994 #SuperBowl championship team.

Since then, fans have lauded this and called for the red version to return.

Here is the history of these uniforms.

Continue thread.🔽 ImageImage
These throwback uniforms originally date back to the 1955 #49ers team. That team went 4-8.

The helmet was red (with no logo) and silver pants were sometimes worn. The original white uniforms featured black stripes.

This uniform was only worn this season.

Continue thread.🔽 ImageImage
In 1994, the #NFL celebrated its 75th year. Teams were to participate in league-wide throwback uniform celebration beginning in Week 3. A commemorative 75th anniversary patch was worn by all teams.

For the first two weeks, the #49ers wore the standard set.

It's International Day for Biodiversity! Reply with your favourite animal or plant. Like this tweet and I'll share one endemic species from the Philippines 💚 #IDB2020 #BiodiversityDay
My fave bird is the endangered Visayan tarictic hornbill 🥰 In the wild, this species can now only be found in Negros and Panay islands. Follow Talarak Foundation on IG for news on their captive breeding program for these. #IBD2020 #BiodiversityDay Image
Staying with island endemics theme, here's a Visayan spotted deer. They're endangered. Endemic to West Visayan region but presently only known from forest patches in Negros & Panay. @silliman_u CENTROP has a captive breeding program for this species. #IBD2020 #BiodiversityDay Image

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.

My 1st Round Grades w/ Analysis in the thread:

Referenced my Big Board for value (linked again below w/ my other #NFLDraft content)
All my #NFLDraft content, including my Top 100 Big Board, in one spot👇
A+ (5 total) = Elite pick - great player & fit + excellent value
A (6) = Great - great player & fit
B (5) = Good - would've done it differently
C (5) = Reach / Left value on the board
D (6) = Come again? ... Why.
F (5) = See gif👇

🚨CC's AYOC: Air Yards Opportunity Chart🚨

Wks 1-4

THREAD:

I created this visual & used it to generate Buy📈 candidates this week, which were discussed on CC E15. Details on how to read this & explanations of Buys are 👇

Data of course from @AirYards & airyards.com
Player pool: WRs & TEs w/ >18 targets and >200 air yards (AY), which equals 58 players

AY= yards from LOS to targeted receiver (even if incomplete)... anything after is RAC. AY can be negative
RY= Receiving yards, or AY + RAC

AYD= AY Differential, or AY - RY
☝️this one is the🔑
AY are a good measure of opportunity, but are much less widely used than are general targets.

AYD helps us evaluate if players have over- or under-performed their opportunity.

High AYD = under-performed & due for +regression
Low or -AYD could be a sign of usage...

Q tells us we "have so much more than we know." Drop 570 says "HRC March 13, 2013 [intercept]." This has to be tied with Hill-Rom (traded as HRC), a "Medical Device" company out of Chicago. Quick graphic shows where I'm at in the dig. #QAnon
March 13, 2013 was a busy news day & we know that "News unlocks map."
That happened to be the day the new Pope, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, an Argentinian Jesuit was named and his very 1st tweet, "Habemus papam franciscum," is sent the same day. Notice the ":33" timestamp.
Another Leader took his position that day, China's Xi Jinping formally assumed title of president. Quite the coincident, huh?

This morning, I called this my favorite stat this year. But then I thought that was an exaggeration. It's my favorite stat for the #Cardinals.

Here's my favorite stat for every other team. #Thread
#Falcons in 2016: 1.57 TDs per FG attempt
2017: 0.85 TDs per FG att
#Ravens
Joe Flacco was 7th in pass atts in 2017, never threw for 300 yds, averaged <200 per game.
