Saturday Night’s Alright For Commenting (2/16/2019)

Battle Red Blog (Matt Weston) — Take off your pants and jacket. It's SNOT time. After months of slobbering around the post modern slop I finally I escaped my pen and the other sheep. I'm driving far and fast and am watching the hills and mesquite turn into open splats of land filled with decrepit leafless witch broom bushes. There's restaurant called restauaraunts.

The Film Room: Quinnen Williams Is The Best Defensive Tackle Prospect Since Aaron Donald

Battle Red Blog (Brett Kollmann) — I’ve been waiting to make a legit comparison to the Rams’ DPOY. The wait is over. It’s been a trend the last three or four years to hype up seemingly every short or light defensive tackle as “the next Aaron Donald ”.
