This Cavs’ roster is better than last year’s
All the optimism that the Celtics had built up in the offseason was dashed when Gordon Hayward went down with a gruesome broken ankle that likely ended his year. While everyone was talking about what Boston had gained in the offseason, no one was talking about Cleveland.
The Cavs lost Irving, but they have added more depth, flexibility with the additions of Jae Crowder, Isaiah Thomas, D-Wade, and Derrick Rose.
Boston had to give up Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley to get Gordon Hayward, and clear space for Irving. Even with Hayward Colin thought Cleveland was better. Without him, it’s not even close.
Tom Brady has been on a historic tear since returning from his Deflategate suspension
Through six weeks of the NFL season, the Patriots’ defense has been terrible, but Tom Brady, at 40, is as good as ever. Colin thinks it may be on the greatest 18-game stretch in NFL history. Since returning from his Deflategate suspension in Week 5 last year, Brady has thrown 41 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, 67% completion percentage, 5600 yards, and a 111 passer rating. That’s not even counting the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history to win his fifth ring.
He’s also doing it with interchangeable parts at receiver, including the loss of his top target, Julian Edelman, this year.
Colin’s advice? Enjoy the greatness, because we might never see it again.
