BSJ Daily Briefing 09.05.19: NFL season begins tonight, Tim Thomas speaks

Good morning!

  • We heard from Tom Brady for the last time before the opener this weekend and Greg has an interesting look at how he's handled the passing offense over the years through so much turnover.
  • What were the odds before the season that Eduardo Rodriguez would be the best Sox starter this year? Sox fail to make up any ground in wildcard race though after Indians/Rays/A's all hold serve.
  • No Marcus Smart (sore quad) or Tatum (ankle) for Team USA today in a blowout win over Japan.
  • Good stuff from Conor after Tim Thomas breaks his silence.
  • Rob Williams is turning some heads at the C's practice facility this summer.
  • Nice opener for the NFL with Packers-Bears on the docket. Will be interesting to see how the Packers bounce back this year after last season's debacle.
