🚨 Concussion Thread 🚨

In light of the #TuaTagovailoa injury let's discuss the most taboo injury in all of sports

❕What is a concussion?
❕Did #Tua suffer from one
❕Were the #Dolphins at fault?

👇
A concussion is a metabolic condition of the brain resulting in cognitive and vestibular deficiencies

Memory loss, visual deficits, balance problems, dizziness, vertigo are common symptoms of a concussion

A headache alone is NOT a concussion
A concussion is typically sustained via trauma to the head; a direct blow to the head or the back of the head hits the ground

A concussion can be sustained without a direct blow to the head via whiplash

Ironing out kinks in the viz but here are #Chiefs vs #Cardinals receiving stats to tide you over.

Juju looks promsing, MVS isn't a thing but playing over Hardman in 2 WR sets, don't worry about Skyy.

Hollywood will be fine, Ertz part time coming off injury, idk about Dortch.
#Steelers @ @Bengals

Diontae will be fine, really strong Pat F showing, meh from Claypool and Pickens.

Chase is a star, prob don't care about Boyd even with Tee sidelined, even pre-Higgins injury it was firmly the Chase show.
Air yards data looking a bit suspect for a few teams, going to pause for now

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.

Another key angle to this story that's being missed is re: #Dolphins’ offer of $100K to each accuser so they could sign Deshaun. Buzbee’s rejection of this (far more than he could reasonably expect to get in court) is more solid proof that he’s running a smear campaign. 🧵#Browns
Based on what’s been reported, including Watson’s public statement on Tues, this offer was contingent on all the accusers accepting. This is common in litigation. And it means that Buzbee only had to convince one of his clients to reject it to keep his smear campaign going.
Any lawyer who didn’t have ulterior motives would most surely have convinced his clients to accept this lucrative offer. Again, the great majority of the accusers allege no physical contact at all. $100K is an astronomical sum in such cases. No way they'd get that from a jury.

Thread: 28 April 2022: Day 64 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
#Britain is getting the messaging right on this: an acknowledgement of the reality that there is a task in front of us, but a refusal to even hint at recognising #Russia's annexation of Crimea or any other part of #Ukraine
#Russia managing to forge a nation in #Ukraine, revitalise a West that had seemed in terminal decline, and eliminate its own levers soft/economic influence in a war meant to do exactly the opposite is quite something to watch

Happy #InternationalWomensDay to all the powerful women fighting to make the world a kinder, more #sustainable place each day.

In honor of @womensday, here are a few pieces written by amazing women of various backgrounds—journalists, investigators, doctors, and beyond. Image
Cows don't just naturally make #milk but must be impregnated and give birth in order for lactation to occur, and calves must be routinely removed for that milk to be rerouted for human consumption.

Texts from Bill Belichick to Brian Flores, congratulating Brian for landing the #Giants job.

Belichick thought he was texting Brian Daboll. He was texting Flores by mistake.

Not all teams are trying to win, we knew that, now here's proof.

#Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was upset with Brian Flores for being too successful. Resented him for it.

Probably has something to do with him firing a coach that has been wining the past two seasons in Miami.
Story keeps getting wilder and wilder.

** 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

🚑 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.

#NoMoreHoney
#イルカのハニーを忘れない

#SayNoToDolphinShows
#イルカショーには行きません
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.

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.
