A few random thoughts while I wonder what limb Tom Brady would have to be missing to actually be listed on the injury report this week...
- We've been ramping up the Titans prep this week with our Nashville buddy Paul Kuharksy. He's always had a great feel for what's going on with that team.
- I'll have a comprehensive breakdown of the Titans in the next day. Lotta film to go through.
- Good story here from ESPN's Rich Cimini with an oral history of the day Bill Belichick resigned as HC of the NYJ. Not really a ton of new information, but interesting in one place nevertheless.
- RIP to former NBA commissioner David Stern, one of the most influential power brokers in the history of sport.
- Enjoyed these 20 Celtics predictions from B-Robb ... he buried the lead ... Kemba vs. Kyrie in the playoffs? I almost fell out of my chair. Dear 8 pounds, 6 ounces, newborn infant Jesus, don't even know a word yet ... please make this happen. (Bonus: I don't think the coward could skip that series, but I'm not ruling it out).
- By the way, let's not ignore the fact that the Bruins lost to the Devils. Looking forward to the playoff reunion with the Blue Jackets tonight.
