    Ever win a championship?

    What aspect of sports do you work in?
    Basketball, Baseball, Football, Tennis, Soccer, and Golf

    Pitcher, SS, 2B, 3B, LF, SF, PF, C (that was a bad decision), WR, TE, CM, and DM.

    From the age of 5 through 30 when I realized I was way too old to be running in pickup hoops games.

    Yep, one. It was alright, the big trophy was a bit ridiculous.

    Football, specifically the NFL Drafr.

    I forgot Tennis doesn’t really have a position, but competitively I played mostly in doubles in Alta and the other leagues tournaments.

    Not playing to his standards doesn't mean he was a goat. Without Josh Allen your goat we would lost yesterday.

    It's ok, we all tried tennis but weren't as consumed, besides Yardrat maybe.

    If Allen isnít the QB, The Bills donít win that game. Thatís really all that matters

    Probably. I never said any different.

    What I did say that if he played to his standard we aren’t in a position to need a last minute drive to win a game against the arguable worse defense in the league.

    Both statements are true, but only one of us cares about arguing a concept of right or wrong.

    That is one of many things that consumes Yardie that we don’t talk about publicly.

    Tennis is a great sport but god damn it's really hard lol. We don't have a lot of head to head sports like that and it makes a great video game.

    Tennis is fun because, like golf, the key to success is about control and not power.

    Thanks I am well aware I'm free to believe it. And I would wager just about everyone else on this site agrees with me.

    Your "goat" almost singlehandedly won that game for us. We know for a fact the injury Josh has is not fully healed, what % he's off is speculation, which I gave my guess based on watching but the exact % isn't as important as the fact that he's trying to play through an injury. But instead of giving the guy credit for being a warrior AND FOR WINNING THE GAME you call him a goat. Joke.

    But do carry on.

    Yes, really. You're grading Josh on a curve and using his own high standard that he set for himself, against him.

    Ah, I see your point now.

    Yes, I am. Though I think it’s more of a linear grade than on a curve. A curve would imply some kind of external factor impacting the grade.

    You have introduced an external factor in Josh's grade, though - the standard that he set, for himself. You're being a hard ass.
