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?

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
