Many People Are Now Calling Josh Gordon The Next Randy Moss

With the rumors coming true that Josh Gordon is now on the New England Patriots, is he the key the Patriots need to improve their offense?

Many People Are Now Calling Josh Gordon The Next Randy Moss

"Flash" Gordon. He's been quite the story these past couple of days and as of this afternoon, he was officially traded to the New England Patriots for a conditional fifth-round pick. This, coming off the fact that on Saturday, Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey tweeted out that the team was going to release or trade Gordon by Monday. Now that he's on the New England Patriots, is this what the Patriots needed to kick-start their slow offense?

Gordon, many now calling him the next Randy Moss, is definitely going to fit into offense very nicely as the season goes on. It's going to be a little rough for him in the beginning, since he has to learn a brand new playbook, but as the season progresses, he'll get in a groove with Tom Brady and find his role in this offense. That and the fact that almost any player that comes from the Browns to the Patriots usually will have a big impact on the team. You look at players like Barkevious Mingo, Jabaal Sheard, and Dion Lewis and see how their success from the Patriots helped them become better players on other teams with more important roles.

Looking at Josh Gordon overall, this is something that the Patriots have to be drooling all over. A giant at 6 foot, 3 inches, 225 pounds, I'm sure they are going to pair him in the slot with Hogan and Patterson. With that, they are probably going to use his height with possessions in the red zone, since every team targets Rob Gronkowski as the primary target for this part of the field. He is going to be a nice red zone target.

Another thing to look at Gordon about is his age. He is 27 years old, meaning that he is starting to get into his prime and what better team to be in your prime with than the New England Patriots. We saw this in many players, including Randy Moss, Deion Branch, Tom Brady, and others all displaying their prime on this team and showing what they can do. If the Patriots use Gordon the right way, we may see his prime make him a really great football player, maybe even a Hall of Famer (but that's too early to tell.)

With the New England Patriots now bringing in another important receiver to add to Tom Brady's receiving core, don't be surprised if Gordon and Corey Coleman come in the game together as x-factors. Remember, Coleman and Gordon were both receivers for the Cleveland Browns up until this upcoming season. We also have other Patriot players that were on the Browns that have made an impact, some like Jason McCourty and Danny Shelton. To add to this Belichick was the coach for the Browns for a time until he became the coach of the Patriots, so does this conspiracy seem like something that could be true?

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
