hwebb,

@ErikUden Does your instance block Threads? My current one does not, and I might want to move to one that does. I realize that I could block it myself, but I'd like to support an instance that feels the same way about it that I do!

    HA HA HA HA HA HA! #Cowboys get another TD but screw the pooch on both a two-point try AND an extra point. Takes a special kind of stupid to do that. 😂

    @emarktaylor @nfl @TomPelissero Hope they brought their running game and pass rush with them!

    I am refusing to watch the Chefs and Fins game on Peacock.

    Do not put the NFL behind a streaming paywall.

    It'll only encourage them to make more games into pay per view events.

    @mdmrn "Witness history." Please... like the league doesn't already have enough money.

    Rooting for the Titans, and if that fails, the Dolphins. Haven't forgotten that we wouldn't be in this mess if we had beaten the Cardinals and Patriots. @nfl

    hwebb,

    @gramesy @nfl Moving on from Canada and Trubisky were clearly good decisions, and the are playing their best ball of the season. Watt is irreplaceable, but there is much better depth at that position than at ILB and safety. And we might get Fitzpatrick and Kazee back. At the very least, we're a legitimate threat.

    janerationx, to Steelers

    Touchdown . Very good drive. Seems like aren't playing too hard, though.

    @nfl

    hwebb,

    @janerationx @nfl Hoping for a win, but I don't think they'll get the help they need to make the playoffs.

    🏈 @nfl #NFL

    Via Ian Rapoport 🤖 @RapSheet

    With Kenny Pickett (ankle) nearing full health, #Steelers coach Mike Tomlin opts for the hot hand: Mason Rudolph will get the start in Week 17.

    This was the week Pickett was set to return. Then Rudolph stated his case.

    hwebb,

    @emarktaylor @nfl @RapSheet I think Pickett's original prognosis was 3-6 weeks, so a return this week would still put him at the early end of that, though it sounded like Tomlin was leaving the door open. Anyway, Rudolph may be the better QB at this time, but I don't think that Pickett has quite reached his ceiling yet.

    hwebb,

    @emarktaylor @nfl @RapSheet In fairness, it's possible that Rudolph hasn't reached his ceiling yet, either! But I think he's closer than Pickett is.

    Intentional grounding in the end zone. SAFETY!!!!!

    #NFL #BALvsSF @nfl

    hwebb,

    @janerationx @nfl And the ref tripped him up... that was worth the price of admission.

    janerationx, to NFL

    Fucking hell. Touchdown Dallas.

    @nfl

    hwebb,

    @janerationx @nfl Lamb got away with a pretty blatant OPI on that fourth down. Wish the refs were calling PI consistently in this game.

    janerationx, to cowboys

    Bullshit roughing call on the . get bailed out by the refs again.

    @nfl

    hwebb,

    @janerationx @nfl But they offset it by making the same call the other way later. I swear that payback calls have been a thing for a while.

    gramesy, to Steelers

    Night and day. Where did this offense come from? #Steelers #nfl @nfl

    hwebb,

    @gramesy @nfl Now they have to stay focused. Part of mental toughness is how you handle success.

    gramesy, to Steelers

    Anyone but Mitch at this point. This feels like the season is over. #Steelers @nfl

    hwebb,

    @gramesy @nfl It did seem like they gave him more time than he deserved. I guess he did just enough to avoid being yanked until that play, but it's clear at this point that he's not going to win many games for us.

    WHY THE HELL DID YOU DO THAT #LIONS????????

    #NFL #GBvsDET @nfl

    hwebb,

    @Stoneycase @j @nfl Same with the #Steelers, but in our case it was the defense bailing out the offense, and then bye-bye Matt Canada.

    Apologies for letting my insecurities spill into your discussion. I couldn't help it.

    hwebb,

    @j @nfl Non sequitur, but what did you think of Mike Sullivan when he was OC for the Giants a number of years ago? He'll be calling the plays for Pittsburgh for the rest of the season.

    hwebb,

    @j @nfl Thanks. I think it's just a stop-gap measure, but I was curious.

    gramesy, to Steelers

    If the offense puts up 300+ yds on Sunday, I'll be wondering why Tomlin waited this long to let Canada go. @nfl

    hwebb,

    @gramesy @nfl My guess is that our win streak at the end of last season and then a couple of monster ground games this year kept Canada around. But the overall lack of development and then the obviously poor game-planning for the game at Cleveland were the deciding factors. Here's hoping that today's game was a sign of things to come (but with more touchdowns).

    When people say we should run the country like a business, they mean a business in the Deep South, before the Civil War.

    hwebb,

    @RickiTarr Corporate culture is authoritarian and communist. It's not surprising that someone from that world would relate to Putin and Kim.

    Friends, - ians, lend me your ears 👂

    I spoke to a very interesting group of people last week about the prospects for Public Social Media.

    I feel I should write a brief essay as followup and I am staring forlornly at my text editor.

    How shall I explain to people unfamiliar with the why it represents a promising opportunity for their organizations?

    hwebb,

    @Kathrin For #2, did you mean "- proof," not "- prone?" Otherwise, great responses.

    hwebb,

    @gbhnews Referring only to the potential appeal for public broadcasting organizations, people who join federated services like Mastodon are often drawn by the absence of commercial, for-profit interests. It seems like a natural fit for PBS stations.

    @GottaLaff Wonderful actor. Amazing presence!
