  1.  Buzbee even provided evidence today where 1 of the 18 woman who came out in support of Watson had in the past made statements that she would never work with Watson again and that the word is getting out about him.  Somehow Buzbee got copies of her DMs that she sent in the past.

    Also, I don’t understand why people are shocked that Buzbee and his client tried to get a settlement before it reached a trail.  I’m pretty sure that’s how most civil lawsuits are handled.

    “Lawsuit Settlement Process - Statistically 90% of all lawsuits filed are settled before trial. Of the 10% of the cases that go to trial 90% of them settle before verdict. Therefore, a very small percentage of cases are ever tried to conclusion. One reason is that the costs of trial are prohibitive and the results are never guaranteed.”

  2.  1st criminal charge, not related at all to the women Mr. Buzbee is representing.  But Mr. Buzbee did confirm he filed a new lawsuit today also, which now makes it a total of 22 lawsuits.   Not sure why Watson’s lawyer, Mr Hardin, is saying he is glad that a criminal charge has been filed because he will now at least know the identity of one the anonymous women.  But this is a “new” woman, unrelated to Mr. Buzbee and the 22 anonymous women who have file lawsuits.  

  3. Can’t believe how Mary’s account of what happened can be considered good news for Watson.  Basically confirms what the other woman are saying, but not as awful, even though Watson offered her the opportunity to touch his unit, he didn’t force her, but that didn’t stop him from doing his weird thrusting.  “This towel is “itchy”, lol, that cracked me up.

    Buzbee didn't meet his own deadline. 

    Missing a deadline is lying?  

    Tough crowd.  

    I kinda think that Watson and his attorney have been more willing and are discussing possible settlements and maybe that’s why Buzbee hasn’t pursued the criminal charges as of yet.  Just the threat of doing it might be what leads to these suits being settled.

    the same way it's unlikely that 15 women are lying, id find it equally as unlikely that one of 15 doesn't have a decent enough case to prive it criminally. 

    It just feels off, in its entirety. But maybe this is how it all works, i legitimately dont know. But doesn't feel right

    I was just reading on a Houston Texans forum that 2 woman are leaving the civil suit and are filing criminal charges.  We’ll see if this is true or not soon.

    He lied about the police calling his office per the police. 

    He probably lied about being able to recognize the Mcnairs on the street given his manziel billboards social media post from 7 years ago. 

    He's saying that this lawsuit is about preventing other victims from suffering, but hasn't involved law enforcement. 

    The guy being full of crap is not mutually exclusive with Watson being innocent of course but it seems like he is brazenly bending the truth. 

    He clarified that issue later and said that a “detective” contacted him, not the HPD.

    I’d read the attorney is a neighbor of the team owner? That would add some shadiness if true. 

    This is his statement regarding that:

    “I need to dispel some silly rumors,” Buzbee said. “Yes, I live on River Oaks Boulevard and I live near the McNair family. I don’t know the McNair family. I wouldn’t recognize Cal or Hal or whatever his name is, if I saw him on the street. This case has nothing to do with the Texans, has nothing to do with free agency. The timing? I don’t know anything about that silliness and frankly don’t care about it. The Texans are not a team that I follow. This case is about brave women who are willing to step forward knowing that they will be criticized and ostracized and we should all get behind them, applaud them for their bravery and support them.”

    The lawyer has been FLAT OUT LYING. Seems like a lot of talk for very little.

    I don’t see why he would be lying, he’s already rich, famous, has given over $20 million to charity.  I think his net worth is over $700 million.  He seems more than just a sleezy lawyer that some are calling him.   But if he is lying like you say he is, I will be surprised.

    Did he get hurt? I saw him get cracked real hard on the 3rd down pass on the drive to start the second half and I don’t think I saw him come in again.

    Don’t think he got hurt, he was just ineffective and Williams was looking good with his touches compared to CEH.  CEH maybe still wasn’t at 100% health from his previous injuries, at least as an owner, that’s what I am hoping.

  10. Worse case GB goes for the TD and fails.  They have to stop TB and have enough time to try for a TD and 2 point conversion, then hope for OT.

     A good result would have been getting the TD, but failed on 2 point conversion.  So down by 2.  They still have to stop TB and have enough time to get ball back and only have to kick a FG to win.

    The best result would have been getting the TD and 2 point conversion.  Kicking the ball to Tampa, holding them and getting the ball back with enough time to kick a FG to win the game, if not, take chance in OT

    The worse case was not going for TD (since Aaron Rodgers is the QB), deciding to kick a FG, hoping to be able to stop Tampa and then hoping there is enough time to go and score a game winning TD. 

    With Aaron Rodgers as your QB, you can’t go by percentages, he’s one of the greatest QBs of all time, let him win or lose the game, not your defense (unless your defense is the ‘85 Bears).

    If the packers go for it and don't get it, the bucs are pinned deep.  If they go 3 and out the pack gets the ball again with great field position.

    The right play was to go for it.  You have freaking Rodgers. 

    Agree 100%, to much risk going for the FG and then having to guarantee Tampa goes 3 and out and then having enough time to go 70 or 80 yards for a TD.  The only smart play I saw the GB coach was to jump offsides on purpose, I was surprised Tampa didn’t just decline the penalty.

  12. One of the reasons the GB coach justified kicking the FG was that they still had all of their timeouts plus an extra timeout at the 2:00 warning.  Tampa Bay returned the kick but the returner slid and stopped the clock with 2:02 left.  Why didn’t he keep running which would have taken the clock down to under 2:00 and that would have used up the timeout for the 2:00 warning? Was he afraid of fumbling?  I was shocked when I saw him sliding.   That slide gave the Packers 40 seconds, it didn’t end up hurting the Bucs, but it could have.

  13. I’m only play in dynasty leagues and mainly use DLF for my main content and their forums.  Really don’t follow any poster on FBGs for dynasty, though I really enjoy the Shark Tank forum.  DLF’s trade calculator, trade finder, off-season mock drafts and their frequently up to date rankings by multiple analysts is something that I find worthwhile and entertaining.  Enjoy listening to a bunch of different dynasty podcasts, unreal how many are available, really like the ones that Matt Williamson is involved with.

    I hope Washington stays out of the Watson sweepstakes.  He’s a great QB but realistically how can you build a team that has a legit chance at winning a Super Bowl if you are paying a QB $40 million a year (Watson’s cap hit in 2022 and 2023) and are just an average team as of today?  If Watson was a free agent, I can understand wanting to make a play for him, you can always restructure contracts, but to give up 1st round picks in addition to valuable players and then pay a ton in salary, it would be a big mistake.

  15. Of course Andy Reid is going to say Mahomes looks good, why would he say anything else?  Makes the Bills prepare for Mahomes no matter what. If Reid said Mahomes looks questionable/not good and then ends up playing, that would be a bad look the NFL and how serious they are taking the concussion protocol.  I’ve watched football for a long time and never heard/seen any play when a player was wobbling like they just got hit by Mike Tyson and the  reason was they were choked.  I voted 50%, if it wasn’t a playoff game, I would have voted 100%.

  16. A.J. Brown said he had surgery on both of his knees.

    Brown claims that they believed his 2020 season was done after a Week 2 knee injury, but he managed to play through the pain. That makes his 70-1,075-11 receiving line across 14 games even more impressive. Brown simply is one of the best and most physical athletes at the position. It's unclear what surgeries he had -- his Week 2 injury was reportedly a bone bruise -- but he has months to get back to full health before training camp. With Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith headed for free agency, Brown will be in the WR1 conversation for 2021 fantasy drafts. He'll be 24 years old then.

    I still think a team would give a high pick to have Kareem Hunt and Cleveland should look to deal him.

    I don’t see that happening, not only would a team give up a high draft pick, but then they still have to pay Hunt $6 million a year and then resign him shortly when his contract is up to a bigger contract.
