Matthew Stafford has Been Traded to the Rams and What it Means for Deshaun Watson

I’ll be the first to say, I didn’t think it was going to happen this quick and for this much.

Matthew Stafford is a 34-year old QB. The Rams valued him at 2 first round picks, a third round pick, and Jared Goff.

I thought one first round pick was enough for the 34-year old starter, but here we are.

Does Stafford really make the Rams a contender? Does this move change anything in LA? I’m inclined to say no, but I’m not a GM.

They need one more great WR and some offensive line help before I’m willing to put them back in the Bowl.

This brings us to the biggest QB name still available, Deshaun Watson.

If I’m Nick Casiero, I LOVE this. It gets me rock hard.

If a guy who has never won a playoff game is worth basically what everyone assumed Watson is worth, IMAGINE WHAT THEY CAN GET FOR DESHAUN NOW.

Minimum asking price now, three first round picks and a star, that’s just a fact.

Is Shaq In Deep Waters?

Hello BOTA World! Coming at you live from a small little town that SHOULD BE A GHOST-TOWN but yet still seems to be quite busy. Anyways, as I am immunosuppressed from a kidney transplant, I’ve been stuck in my house for what feels like too long now.

But enough about me! This quarantine has given me some time to reflect on the good things in life, like not hoarding 277 big cats and threatening to kill everyone around you while shooting at their feet. This got me thinking though (for those that have watched Tiger King. For those that haven’t I haven’t decided whether this will be a spoiler or not so good luck) about a sports icon. Shaquille O’Neal May be in some deep, deep waters after this quarantine subsides.

Now Shaq made an appearance on the show for “buying” two tiger cubs. What the show is based off of consists of the illegal activities that took place upon these rescues, sanctuaries, and zoos. This instantly lands Shaq in some trouble when the document finally comes out. However, Shaq claims that he never “bought” the cubs, he “sponsored” them instead.

Still the point resides that Shaq was at one point, friendly with one of the most psychotic gay-redneck-gun-toting-mullet-wearing-big-cat-savin’ man TJ ever walk the planet. So that in itself begs the question to me; how is Shaq not being eaten alive for this?

Personally, I love Shaq, but this is not a good look for the man. Not that he really needs to care what people think of him, but after this documentary, he had to land in some trouble by someone for a bit. Right? The police, his job, his wife? SOMEONE!

Anyways if you’re looking for the most crazy documentary to get through your quarantine I highly suggest watching Tiger King. And to Shaq and the BOTA fans out there, as always, stay safe and away from big cats and there psychotic owners.

NFL Week 4: Games I’m Watching or Making Fun Of

This Week has a really good early window, an eh evening window, and some great prime time games. A ton of tests for teams are coming this week.

Packers vs. Eagles

Let’s get right into Thursday Night Football. Aaron Rodgers vs. Carson Wentz, both QB’s don’t look like they’re at 100%, but Philly has a solid offense and Green Bay has a surprisingly good defense. This has the potential to be a stalemate game where both sides can’t find a hole and one play changes everything.

Prediction: The eagles win by a touchdown. This is a pure gut pick, no stats, no backing, just a mix of indigestion and bold predictions.

Redskins vs. Giants

There’s nothing super interesting, but I think we will see a battle of first rounders this week. THAT’S RIGHT. This week, Redskin fans will see the first of Dwayne Haskins. It won’t live up to the hype because their line is awful, but it will hopefully be the beginning of a new era.

Prediction: Giants get another win in the Jones Dynasty

Chiefs vs. Lions

This game is an Are They Good? game for the Lions. This will be a real test for their offense, as Pat Mahomes has made the entire league look like Pop Warner kids. The Lions might have to lean on their offense which has had a good showing so far. The scary part is having to rely on Matthew Stafford. Never trust a guy who wont shorten his name.

Prediction: Cheifs win again. duh.

Titans vs. Falcons

This is a battle of teams that should be better. Atlanta should be a top offense. They aren’t. The Titans should be a much better team all around. They aren’t. This will be a game of who decides to show up this current week.

Prediction: Falcons put it together for a week and win

Browns vs. Ravens

This is my game of the week. This is an important game for both teams, but mostly the Browns. They have had a lot of criticism for not living up to the hype. All of it, totally deserved. They need to get their act together in a pivotal early match up. They played well against the Ravens last year, but this isn’t the same Ravens team.

Prediction: The Browns barely win. 28-24

Cowboys Vs. Saints

This match up is always fun to watch. It is always an offensive battle and this year is no different. Zeke is the best back in the league right now. @ me haters. Amari Cooper has route running that makes him look like a video game character lagging. For some ungodly reason , Dak is good this year. The Saints come in with no Brees, but Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill splitting time. I’m very excited to see Hill in action for more time, the kid is exciting. Plus they have Kamara and Thomas, so they aren’t lacking in offense either.

Prediction: Saints win by two scores. I’ll say 32-22
