I have one indelible image from last night’s Hall of Fame Game. Did you see the way Steeler tight end Kevin Rader stole the manhood of Cowboy safety Tyler Coyle on Kalen Ballage’s touchdown run? OMG! Can you say, “Dead Roach”? Holy Cahulawassee.
Pittsburgh beat Dallas to the punch all night. But I was encouraged by the way the Dallas defense was generally able to line up in the right spots, something it never once mastered in 2020.
Garrett Gilbert? Yeah, he looked like he knew what he was doing, as did Cooper Rush occasionally. Ben DiNucci? Needs to go back to singing lead for Dion and the Belmonts.
Look, I’m just gonna say it. Yes, I’m worried about Dak. Yes, I am.
So Jimmah and Jerrah have buried the hatchet? And not between each other’s shoulder blades? That’s nice.
Most impressive Jimmah stat during his tenure with the ‘Boys. He was 7-1 in the postseason.
Most impressive Jerrah stat? In the middle of a pandemic the value of the Cowboys went up $800 million in 2020. The Franchise is now valued at 6.5 bill. And for those people who claim the NFL is “declining,” the average value of each of the 32 teams jumped 14 percent in 2020, despite a pandemic-induced decline in revenues in 2020. STHU.
Of course I’m looking forward to Roger’s introduction of Drew! But don’t sleep on Charlie Waters. He will knock it out of the park in introducing his buddy, “Crash” Harris. Have I ever mentioned that Charlie Waters is the most consistently brilliant football interviewee I have ever encountered? Oh, I have? Like maybe 1,389 times?
Say what you want about Brady. My wife, BB, spits on the ground every time his name gets mentioned, kinda like Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard. But Brady is flying into Canton for Peyton’s induction. That’s cool. That’s very cool.
Photofinish in the race for Biggest Idiot in the NFL. Cole Beasley? Kirk Cousins? And here comes Jimmy Graham closing on the rail! Get your bets down!
Graham is bitching that now he’s “not getting paid” to play a 17th game. Dude, you can’t stay on the field for three games these days…
But RGIII’s mama didn’t raise no fool. He just landed a mega-deal with the Four Letter as both a college football and NFL analyst. And there’s a clause in the deal that allows him to return to getting concussed on the field should some team give him an opportunity. That’s the way I feel about this blog thing. I’ll just keep doing it until the NFL calls me back.
Finally, rest easy, J.R. A lot of people loved you, Big Fella. Me included.
