  • If the Jets lose tonight and Miami or Indi wins - they are eliminated from the playoffs. Which would be the 10th straight year out of the playoffs. The only longer drought was from 1970-1980. #impressive

  • Remarkable what the $PNC team has done to transform the company - taking advantage of lower valuations to gain size and scale. Might look back one day and think inflection. BBVA USA.
