Heck, if they really felt like they had to take a running back, they could’ve went with Christian McCaffrey.

I have no words.
Although it’s very tempting, because the site is actually sort of romantic, in places.
Modal verbs, as it describes them, “are useful for expressing your present feelings about a past decision (or other action).”
(I’m thinking about a few of my own past decisions, or other actions….)
“Could have, would have, and should have are sometimes called ‘modals of lost opportunities,’” the site goes on to say.
Sean, you had an opportunity to say they could’ve gone with McCaffrey, but no. You had to say could’ve went.

I confess, I’m feeling, at this moment, like the father of a teenager.
