Seems like the stage is being set for Shanahan to leave at the end of the year.

NE doing a fantastic job of reminding me to go to bed early.
Expect it when you least expect it.

My problem with the play is that there is no consistency between the way it was officiated and the way Arrington was penalized on the Panther's drive before. It seems Gronk was fouled before the ball arrived, making the question of whether it was catchable moot because he didn't have an opportunity to be in position in the first place. The NFL has crazy rules, though, and you can't really expect it to make sense.
That said, even as a Pats fan, it's hard to get too worked up over this stuff. Just like with the helmet catch, this is what people remember but it's not necessarily where the game was actually lost.

The fact that the Pats briefly signed and played Austin Collie goes to show how unsuccessful they were at replacing Welker. My primary reaction to that was "wow, I really hope this isn't how the first NFL player dies on the field."

I quit Pop Warner 2 years in after the 2nd consecutive coach turned out to be into doing stuff like making you complete your windsprints prior to drinking water in 100+ degree heat and having all of the small kids do one on one hitting/tackling drills with the one kid who was sized like a grown man already. I got the sense that this was pretty much the norm throughout all of the leagues I could've played in and was done with it. This was the 90s and it's hard for me to imagine the culture has changed much. It's not as if the hazards of not letting kids have water when it's hot were unknown until recently. I would advise against it at any opportunity at this point.

As a Red Sox fan, I hope to see the Cardinals again next year, too, so they can lose a third time.

Meriweather must be making up for all of the opportunities to make stupid comments that he missed while with the Patriots.

I doubt many people really care about the constructors title, but I think that's the key here. His Red Bull car almost always has some sort of edge, whether it's KERS-based pseudo-traction control or it's something more prosaic. Vettel's clearly a great driver, and it takes nothing away from him, but there are numerous examples from this year where the car just turns differently from everyone else, even including Webber (when his car hasn't mysteriously broken down).

Is the old gunslinger ready for one last battle?

Baseball really can be such an intolerably sanctimonious sport.

ESPN seems to be digging for some sort of Derek Rose type angle with Gronkowski. They seem to be tackier than usual lately, maybe that's just me.

Somehow, Mike Lombardi is going to find a way to use those draft picks to pick former Patriots players.

I came here to say basically the same thing. I'm sure they'll use their pick wisely.

I really don't understand why he hasn't tried other positions. Maybe he can't catch very well? Maybe it's about injury risks? Who knows, but from where I am sitting, it seems like he would be a pretty crazy threat as a TE. You know he can run and he adds the extra dimension of being a more plausible threat than usual for "TE option" types of plays.
I hear the Jets need a QB.

I have no real opinion on college football, but this story has been unavoidable in the dead weeks of August, so unfortunately I know enough about this Manziel story to think the outcome is comical. Way to reinforce every negative stereotype, NCAA, I am sure this bodes well for the future.
