It sucks. Mariota seems like such a nice dude, and he’s played through a lot of pain the past couple years in particular, but the Titans have been an absolute clusterfuck, at an organizational level, since we drafted him. He hasn’t even been all that bad. Last year, his numbers were way down, but the advanced stats Read more

Yeah, the Israeli PR machine is incredible, and I say this as a strong critic of Israeli policies. The “they oppose Israel’s right to exist” line is a good example. There’s no such right! It doesn’t exist in international law. But prominent figures who should absolutely know better parrot that line uncritically. The Read more

Gotta love the R&M fans complaining about their show not delivering enough episodes per year, with fans of the Venture Bros. like me giving them the massive side-eye. Read more
