  1. I’m fairly sure he was saying he would regret the trade if it turned out that way. Are there leagues where the draft order gets determined preseason? My point was I would rather fill a hole on a very strong team by overpaying with whatever spare parts I had for a young stud then trying to rent an older vet using only some of those spare parts.
  2. I’m guessing that the 2019 pick is not 1.01 and unlikely to be with those Wr. I’m not a believer in Hunt (I actually like Guice at least as much) but if you are then this is the kind of deal you make to put yourself in the driver’s seat for this season, IMO.
  3. 1. Buffalo wins the AFC east, preventing the Pats from taking ten straight. Josh Allen plays just good enough and the bills lean on McCoy/ivory and an aggressive D. 2. Tennessee has the best record in the league. Taywan Taylor erupts for 80/1200/9 and Derrick Henry leads the league in rushing yards. 3. Eric Ebron eclipses Evan Engram. Alliteration aside, The former EE is a top 5 fantasy TE. 4. Fournette and Hunt are first round busts as they finish the year as the second best fantasy RBs on their teams. 5. Philadelphia repeats as Super Bowl Champs and Dallas is picking
  4. Last trade of the offseason. Just acquired Dalvin Cook for three 2019 firsts (and Thomas Rawls!) Two of the firsts originally belonged to elite teams and the third from more of a pretender than a contender. A couple league mates commented that it was aggressive, which is a polite way to say I overpaid. Which I did, of course. Overall, I am happy with the improvements I made to my roster his offseason. This team won the title last year thanks to Gurley and luck with injuries: Brady, Cousins Gurley, Collins, Ajayi, Horse#### ABrown, Julio, Evans, Agholar, marqi
  5. This thread make me want to drink...yuengling.
  6. I can only speak to how it can work in a math class. In mathematics, reasoning and justification will always be more valuable than getting the answer right or getting it quick. So, stronger students are challenged because they must justify their work to others. Sometimes that requires finding another way to solve it or explain it and that can be a challenge. It doesn’t always fall on the teacher to do this. If it did, the teacher would be the only one in the class actually doing math. The others would just be following procedures, which is a low level cognitive task even if you are doing i
  7. There is some truth to this first statement for the sole reason that many of the best performing schools are still doing things the way they did them 50 years ago because “if it ain’t broke...” and those schools aren’t actually deserving of any accolades. However, I do think it is an unfair generalization and that there are many many truly exceptional schools that take the students in front of them and make tremendous gains nearly across the board. I agree wholeheartedly about the impact of parents and families. All it takes is some kids dad saying “I was never a math person” to get
  8. I agree that Collegeboard won’t go away quietly. But things will trend in that direction, away from classes with labels that indicate that some students are learning richer, more advanced content than others. Access and equity are paramount. Where accelerated classes continue to exist, there won’t be any barriers to entry. My school lifted teacher recommendations as a requirement to get into AP/honors years ago. History and English classes have gone to a hybrid system where most assignments are offered on a standard and an honors level.
  9. Sorry OP, but all the research shows that the countries who do it best are all the ones who separate by ability the LEAST and the LATEST (Finland and China, for example). Good schools in the US are realizing this and honors and perhaps even AP classes will be gone before you know it. As a teacher, heterogeneous classes means more complex lessons that allow the weaker students access and top students room to run.
  10. I suppose chocolate milk cartons are in the running. It’s been awhile, but no child can open them and it’s gross drinking out of that papery mess (straws were a must)
  11. An actual clamshell or the plastic containers that share the name?
  12. Is there a worse idea in the history of the world than the ketchup packet? Whose idea was it to put 0.0002 oz of ketchup inside a packet that can only be accessed with the nimblest of lady fingers? By the time my banana hands can get one open my fries are cold and even then I have to waste seven napkins to put the catsup on because you obviously can’t fit the fries into the packet. Tin foil cream cheese is a distant second.
  13. A bagel with cream cheese is a sandwich now? That’s like saying a piece of toast is a sandwich.
  14. Thin to win. Cream cheese is basically a butter substitute.
  15. Not if you buy the one that says “regular.” Or you could continue to eat the cheese curds that form around the edges of your tin foil. Second worst packaging idea ever.
  16. Why do people buy cream cheese wrapped in that awkward tin foil stuff when you can get a convenient tub of it? Was going to start a new thread about this but I thought three cream cheese threads might be kind of like that time all those who’s hottest threads got posted and then next thing I know I can’t eat bagels for breakfast because it offends some people.
  17. Let’s say you have some fixed number of cornerstone type players on your roster. Would you prefer they were all about the same age (all likely to reach their peak and drop off at pretty much they same time) or would you prefer a few older players, a few players at their mid career peak, and a few younger players? would you rather own Julio and juju (one player loses value while the other rises) or Tyreek and Evans? Or does that not matter? Too hard to predict how a player might age to bother? At first blush I’m inclined to take the players that peak together, win some hardware, th
  18. Big one for my team and would appreciate any feedback gave: Antonio brown got: 1.09 (Chubb fell which prompted the trade), 2019 first and second (both probably late), Robert woods, Marvin jones It’s not the type of trade I’d usually make (4 quarters for a dollar type) but I think Chubb is the goods, and my team, while strong on paper, really lacked depth. Collins was my rb2 and sproles my rb3. Still have Julio and Evans at WR and three firsts in 2019. Plus I renamed my team “I’ve got a chubb” before I accepted and wrote “I did it all for the penis jokes” in the tra
  19. Never realized that Canada and Mexico share a border. You learn something new every day!
  20. Nice thread idea. What percent of your roster consists of players that other owners wouldn’t give, say, a 3rd round pick for? We are about to draft and I would say there are 7 players on my team (out of 28 spots) that the consensus would value less than a 3rd round pick. I think this is a result of my tendency to package picks and decent players to upgrade my starters wherever I can. I don’t mind having a lot of garbage on my bench because it gives me roster flexibility when I want to add a lotto ticket but I’m curious how others see it. Some of my league mates seem to do it different.
  21. Agreed. Team that gave up Cooks really needed a RB and I was surprised the other owner didn’t ask for more.
  22. Any chance Jakeem earns a bigger role with Landry moving on? They seemed to make an effort to get him involved at the end of the year, particularly on those wr screens where he can utilize his quicks. I’m surprised I never saw him in the slot...seems like that would be his best role, but they went out and added amendola.
  23. I saw this as essentially Thompson for Bryant and I much prefer the upside of Bryant. But perhaps I’m writing Ingram off too soon.
