The 2019

Patriots Season. 


7 Things For Sunday: Part II.

Pats Vs Miami:

What The Tua.


The Dolphins seem to continuously be going backwards under their terrible ownership. They always seem to be marred by bad decisions from top to bottom. They rebuilt, sabotage, and rebuild again, only to sabotage again. They pick up a bargain basement top ten pick QB with a golden accurate arm... and then refuse to play him for a Yoda-aged QB who just kept helping them lose, by winning just enough to lose out on Borrow. 

It it time to make room for a young QB or two. Not starting Rosen last week and this week against the Pats is a crime against the future of the Franchise. 

But of course they are planning on keeping, playing, and starting Fitzpatrick again next season. "Physically it's not an issue. Physically I feel great. So there’s always different things that go into it and you’re always drained at the end of the season emotionally," Fitzgerald said. "So there’s a lot of stuff that goes into it but I still love playing, so it’s going to hard to, uh, let’s see. I don’t know that it’ll be a difficult decision. I just think that I’ll go through the due process and figure things out." I mean... what the Tua! Starting Fitzpatrick and not Rosen in this game is another sabotage against their future, again. 

Remarkably, they don't seem to understand that. "Fitz gives us the best chance to win. It's easy for people to sit and say, 'You should do this or that, or this or that,'" Flores said. "I don't think those same people will stand in front of that group and say, 'This is in the best interest of the team, for us to win this week.' That's no knock on Josh. Maybe you think that's in the best interest, but you're not in front of this team every day. You're not in the trenches and a lot of people aren't." Losing this game is in the best interest of this team, and seeing if your young top ten pick QB can play is in the best interest of your team, and getting him some actual game experience the last week of the season is paramount to the future of your franchise. 

So why bother playing Rosen at all this entire season, which is fine with me. "I'm still only 22 years old," Rosen said. "It's not really like the window opens and closes like that. But there is a sense of sort of understanding timing and opportunity. I'm aware of it. But it's all for you guys more to write about than it is for me to worry about." Winning this game would be as disastrous for the Dolphins as it would be for the Pats to lose it.

It could cost them Tua, or another (or all three) of their 1st Round picks to trade up for him. It is time to find the next QB who can make them win, instead of the old QB who stuck his thumb in the dyke and won't let them win or advance forward as a Franchise. It looks like loosing out on Borrow is going to force them to take Tua. 

I think Tua is as good a thrower as Borrow. But he is not as good a QB as Borrow. More importantly his body clearly couldn't handle the impacts of playing College Football in the SEC. That scares the crap out of me. Not all injuries are bad luck. There is a long list of football players who couldn't stay healthy in college and had long healthy careers in the NFL. However, most players that get continually injured in College continue that trend in the NFL. 

And what worries me most with Tua, and maybe my only real negative with him (besides size, which you could argue contributes to injury) is that it seems to be his bone structure that is breaking down. I don't know crap about his medical conditions, but logically there is a difference between a torn whatever, and the bones in his ankle, hip and leg breaking down. 

Now I will say that when he was playing early in the season, he was almost as good as Borrow. However, while he took a big step backwards, Borrow took a historic step forward. And it was not just the bone in his ankle that doesn't seem to be able to able take a hit, it was the hip injury that took him out. Hip injuries are still the least like to heal of all bone injuries.

Remember it was a hip that took out Bo Jackson. "Tua underwent successful surgery on his right hip Monday morning in Houston," Dr. Lyle Cain twitted, for some reason. "The procedure went as planned, and he is resting comfortably. Tua's prognosis is excellent, and we expect him to make a full recovery. He will return to Tuscaloosa in the next several days to begin his rehab." The timing and procedures make Tua a big risk in the top Five. 

A risk the Dolphin now have to take, because they refused to play Rosen, and now have no idea if he is the guy. "Tua Tagovailoa will be on a partial weight bearing recovery plan for six weeks and will be rehabbing daily in Tuscaloosa," per @LauraRutledge. "Then, in three months, he will be able to begin athletic activity again, and by the spring, he is expected to be able to resume throwing." They might have to go into next season with Tua and Rosen on the roster.

Instead of Rosen and Derrick Brown (or maybe Jeff Okudah somehow drops?), or Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb or Andrew Thomas, or Isaiah Simmons, Kristian Fulton or AJ Epenesa or Javon Kinlaw. Now all that is moot, while the Pats pick up Justin Herbert? Now, they will likely have to give up one of their 1sts to go up and get Tua, at Two overall. 

Because they have no idea if Rosen can play, or he would be starting this week against the Pats.

Be A Citizen! Not a Subject! 

Fascist is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Fredo is pulling the cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.

Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances:


The 1st Amendment to the Constitution is the greatest paragraph ever written by mankind. It is the truest diagram of how to ensure a free Country of citizens survives. But is is also a list of what to attack when you want to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs is attacking every article in the 1st Amendment. Beware subjects, or you will be subjugated:


I mean, they have no shame. They have no sense of decency. They have no respect for the rule of Law. They lite the Constitution on fire, get caught, admit, and are being tried for it. 



Now we find, Trump STILL has Giuliani 


in the Ukraine 




I mean... WTF!



Trump and Giuliani are still trying 


to flush the Constitution down the Toilet.

  • Twitter

  • Contrary to a lot of heated rhetoric from Democrats, most Republicans understand that Russia was responsible for the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s server in 2016 and other efforts to sow mischief in the electoral process. They’ll even admit it when pressed.

    The problem is they want everyone to believe that Ukraine did the same thing. It didn’t.

    For the record:
    7:30 AM, Dec. 11, 2019 An earlier version of this story misspelled the name of former chess champion Garry Kasparov. Also, the story said he was born in Russia. He was actually born in Azerbaijan, then a part of the Soviet Union.

    To make the case, the Ukraine conspiracy theorists take a handful of anecdotes about individual Ukrainians and insinuate or insist this thin gruel amounts to something as sinister as the Russian effort. While the effort is a propaganda gift for Russian President Vladimir Putin, they’re pushing this piffle to show they’ve got the president’s back amid the impeachment drama. They’re trying to legitimize Trump’s pressure campaign on Ukraine, but it takes some huge leaps of faith.

    The president subscribes to a fever swamp illusion that goes by the shorthand “CrowdStike.” This potted conspiracy theory holds that the Ukrainians were really the ones to hack the DNC, and the cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike somehow colluded in hiding the server somewhere in Ukraine. (It’s not there and there were actually scores of servers.) Before Trump pressed Ukrainian President Volodmyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden, he first asked him to get to the bottom of CrowdStrike.

    Trump isn’t pushing this canard because it’s Russian propaganda, but because it’s Trumpian propaganda. He detests the fact that everyone, starting with the CIA and continuing through Robert S. Mueller III, has confirmed Russia’s interference on his behalf because he thinks it robs glory from his victory. It’s his “Achilles’ heel” his former aide Hope Hicks told the FBI in recently released interview notes.

    The problem is that no one can take this CrowdStrike craziness seriously. According to Trump’s own theory, Ukraine meddled on behalf of Hillary Clinton. And, to that end, they dealt a devastating blow to her campaign by hacking the DNC server and pinning it on Russia.

    Those dots don’t connect. So what the president’s defenders are doing is waving away the actual matter Trump asked about — CrowdStrike — and stitching together enough random bits to claim Ukraine meddled just enough to make the president’s “concerns” seem legitimate. It’s a bait and switch.

    Take the dramatic appearance by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “Of course Russia interfered in our election,” he said. “Nobody looking at the evidence disputes that.”

    The controversial part came when Cruz added: “Because Russia interfered, the media pretends nobody else did. Ukraine blatantly interfered in our election.”

    No it didn’t.

    Cruz’s best evidence of meddling is an op-ed he cites that was written by the Ukrainian ambassador to the United States in the wake of convoluted remarks by then-candidate Trump about Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea. Trump himself later tried to walk back the comments, but not before the Ukrainian ambassador wrote that Ukraine was troubled by Trump’s backsliding on the Crimea issue. To bipartisan and worldwide horror, Russia illegally stole Crimea. The ambassador, writing at a time when Ukrainians were being killed by Russia-backed forces, said: “Many in Ukraine are unsure what to think, since Trump’s comments stand in sharp contrast to the Republican Party platform.”

    This is outrageous meddling? Who knew an op-ed in the Hill could be so influential?

    Trump’s comments stood in contrast to Sen. Cruz’s own position on the annexation. Does Cruz think that an ambassador raising concerns that echo Cruz’s amount to “blatantly” interfering in an election? Is it comparable to Russia’s anonymous purchase of Facebook ads in 2016 designed to exploit political divides and help Trump get elected?

    Other examples of Ukrainian meddling thrown around by Trump defenders mostly include random statements by individual Ukrainians or the effort by independent Ukrainian actors to release damaging — and truthful — information about former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s corrupt dealings in Ukraine on behalf of pro-Russian politicians. They often mention a Ukrainian court ruling saying the disclosure of that information amounted to meddling in U.S. elections. Less mentioned is the fact that the ruling was overturned. Whatever you make of all that, you could make the case that withholding such information would have amounted to “interference” too.

    But the idea that any of this is remotely equivalent to Russia’s clandestine, Putin-ordered interference is preposterous. It’s also irrelevant because there’s no evidence Trump had any of this in mind when he asked Zelensky about CrowdStrike.

    Just after the 2016 election, the Soviet-born former chess champion Garry Kasparov tweeted: “The point of modern propaganda isn’t only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.”

    That may be the closest we can come to understanding the president’s Ukraine strategy — and that of his defenders.
