Sunday morning quote: "The best decisions have little to no immediate payoff. The best choices compound. Most of the benefits come at the end, not the beginning. The more patient you are, the bigger the payoff." -Shane Parrish
Jets edition: Kickers are like lawyers, never truly appreciated until you need a good one.
2021 compensation to Teddy Bridgewater Broncos: $4 million Panthers: $7 million.
This is everything we need to learn about ego and living in the moment. In one sound bite. I just became a forever fan..
Derek Carr used this national interview to specifically praise a teammate. I just became a forever fan.
And my favorite undrafted free agent story ever: Negotiated with player directly, no agent. Told him we had a deal, bonus would be $1,000. He said (no joke): "Mr. Brandt, I only have $200 now but I promise I will bring the rest when I get there." I said "No, no. We pay you."
It is interesting that NFL teams that never gave a thought to signing @Kaepernick7 are now all in on why he was protesting.
