Mike Tanier's Monday Morning Digest: Raiders, Buccaneers Thrill in a Scary Thanksgiving Week

In which I handcuff Nelson Agholor to Jeff Janis for comedic purposes and finally have the chance to use a Doctor Strange reference that people might actually get.

"[Goff] pulled a reverse-Kaepernick by looking far worse when the game got out of hand than when it was close"

I guess Tanier hasn't gotten FO's memo that Bortles is the patron saint of starting to look good as soon as its clear that his team is not going to win.

"Remember stuff like this the next time someone hits you with team-yardage totals during an argument."

When my arguments get down to team-yardage totals, I know it's time to ask the bartender to call me a cab.

I do like the idea of Fitzpatrick as a bard. I have to imagine he hits the minimum for CHA, has a pretty lousy DEX, decent CON (doesn't seem to get hurt much), solid INT (he's smart in interviews), bad WIS (not so smart on the field), and so-so STR.

Probably a dwarf with the beard.

He doesn't just have solid INT, he's tied for the league lead with 13 of them

As a Patriots fan I hope Fitz rolls an 18 for INT and has another 5 picks before season end. Hopefully the week he plays the Patriots.
