Good one.  I don't remember him doing much with the Raiders but that was a while ago.  The weird thing about Wentz is that even though he was not great in 2018 or 2019 he didn't throw interceptions.  Now he is leading the league in those.  I wonder if the concussions have scrambled his brain and he is unable to read the defenses.  That one in the playoffs last year was really bad.

I looked up Schroeder's stats. In 1990 the Raiders went 12–4 and it appears he had a perfectly serviceable, but by no means outstanding, season, but he didn't have to be outstanding because the Raiders had Marcus Allen and Bo Jackson to carry the load. Schroeder threw for 2,849 yards that season, which isn't bad but also isn't comparable to his 4,109 yards for the Redskins in 1986, his only full year as the Redskins' starter. (He did, however, throw both 22 touchdowns and 22 interceptions during that 1986 season, whereas in 1990 he threw 19 touchdowns and only 9 interceptions. It's fair to note that in 1990 he also attempted 207 fewer passes than he did in 1986, again presumably because Allen and Jackson meant the Raiders didn't need to throw as much.)

Jay Schroeder, perhaps? He had that monster season in 1986, fell out of favor in 1987, and was traded to the LA Raiders for Jim Lachey in 1988 in one of the great all-time steals. Never did much after that, IIRC, although I believe the Raiders did make it to the AFC Championship one year during his tenure (whether because he played well or in spite of his play is something I don't remember anymore).

Canadian border closure extended to 21st December: https://www.washingtonpost.com/travel/2020/11/20/us-canada-border-closure-covid/?itid=hp_travel
The Toronto Raptors are going to start their season in Tampa due to this issue.  Not sure what will happen with the NHL. I believe they are considering a new division alignment and would perhaps have an all Canadian division that would only play each other at the start of the season.

Has there ever been a QB who started out like a ball of fire but then reverted to terrible as Carson Wentz has? He was on track to be MVP in 2017 before his knee injury. Now he is just terrible.

Well other than RG III.

Not sure if it will affect Apple texts because that's outside the scope of my job, but I do know that iPhones and iMacs will run into issues if there are attachments above a certain size in the mailbox. If you've got a habit of texting pictures to people, and you have backups of the pictures, try deleting them from the message threads to see if that helps.

Really appreciate the response.  I just went ahead and deleted the conversation with my friend, including attachments, to see if that helps.

I have an iPhone 11.  Very few of my texts to the number of a friend of mine go through.  Most get a "not delivered" bounce-back.  And, when I get texts from him, they show up repeated 3 to 5 times.  Texts to and from others are working fine.  I only experience this with this particular number.   Any thoughts on how to address this? 

Nevermind:  I think I fixed it by turning off messaging, restarting the phone, turning on messaging, then restarting again. 

Happening again, but with some other numbers.  Ugh.

Michigan isn’t a powerhouse anymore- times change and programs rose and fade, why should we care if statuses aren’t perpetually locked on some arbitrary date?

Unless you're an Ohio State fan, you should care that there's no drama to who wins the Big Ten year in, year out. I suppose I'm OK with Michigan continuing to suck if Indiana suddenly becomes a powerhouse or something, but right now there's one good team in the conference.
