    I think thatís for uh__no to say, not me or anyone else. I donít see any particular reason to think he did not quite literally mean it. Besides, itís not all that outlandish of a potential wish (trade a Giants win over the Patriots for a Duke loss).

    Daniel Jones is a compelling athlete and Duke fans REALLY like him and want to see him do well. Also, uh__no might be a Giants fan and/or he might enjoy seeing the Patriots lose. I know I do, even though I was born in Boston and lived there until I was seven. I attended many Celtics, Bruins, and Red Sox games, but never a Patriots game.

    You take EVERYTHING very literally, don't you? Conversations are more nuanced than that. I don't think anyone on a Duke forum truly would LITERALLY trade a Duke loss for a Patriot loss...but many might muse something in the middle of a Patriots game...

    Probably hates (like most) the Patriots and them going down to a rookie qb from Duke would be a sight to see for him. More so if he is a Giants fan.

    No, I absolutely do NOT take everything very literally. Thatís quite an odd thing for you to state as if itís somehow fact. Strange.

    So, the Daniel Jones thread has gone from arguing about Baker Mayfield to arguing about what a poster meant in an offhand comment?

    Maybe I need to start another distraction flypaper thread . . . .

    Unlike the most who would hate the Patriots, I grew up in that area and have been a fan all these years. Most of the hatred comes from jealousy. Duke fans should know, as duke also has many haters who focus on any wisp of a negative story, many of which are copletely unjustified.

    +1. And not to get into politics, but there are other non-jealousy, Patriots-unique reasons to dislike that organization versus others in the NFL.

    Glad to see the team woke up and Jones looks more like himself. Of course, his receivers have dropped two passes in this drive...
