I want sports to be played. I work in sports, so…duh.
But if the NFL gets cancelled, here’s my dream scenario:
No season = no standings. Ergo, no draft order. The NFL would have to stage a lottery to set the draft order, like when the Penguins got Sidney Crosby in 2005.
I want New England to win that lottery. The Patriots draft Trevor Lawrence, the Clemson quarterback, and go from Tom Brady to Lawrence (with maybe one season of Cam Newton).
The Patriots win more Super Bowls. That would piss people off, and therefore be awesome. (Unless Lawrence refuses to sign when Belichick tells him to get a haircut.)
Lawrence to the Patriots: Make it happen. Freeze the envelope. Inject paint into the ping-pong balls. Whatever it takes.
