It’s Jameis in New Orleans. And it should be. It’s the right decision for the Saints. But just consider this briefly. If Marquez Callaway doesn’t make those two first quarter circus catches (damn! and damn!), is it still an open competition between Jameis and Taysom Hill?
My guess is no. Jameis has a more complete set of QB skills than does Hill. Yes, Jameis had that “30 for 30” season with the Bucs, but Sean Payton will not let that happen in New Orleans. Plus, Taysom is in many ways a victim of his own versatility. That Swiss Army Knife can do anything, and taking him out of that hybrid role would be a net loser for the Saints.
You mean the Bills aren’t really coming to Austin?
We keep naively thinking this is gonna be a return to a “normal” football season. It’s not going to be. All it will take is one SuperSpreader event at one big game, and we’ll be right back to empty stadiums. And the chances of that happening are very near 100 percent.
CeeDee is one of three Cowboy players added to the COVID-reserve list, along with safeties Malik Hooker and Israel Mukuamu. Oh, and new DC Dan Quinn had to go home, too. He is fully vaccinated.
The Cowboys report their players are 93% vaccinated. That means 80 of 86 players currently on the roster. NFL teams have to get down to 80 today. But since five of the Cowboys’ 86 are on the COVID list, Dallas will only have to part with one player today.
J.J. back out there flying around with the Cardinals yesterday. That just makes me feel better about…Earth.
Josh Rosen gets another chance, this time with the Falcons. He’ll fight with Feleipe Franks for the Birds’ backup qb job behind Matt Ryan. That spot opened up when A.J. McCarron went down with a non-contact ACL detonation over the weekend.
Now that Drew is finally in, who should be the next Cowboy in the HOF? I’d say Harvey Martin. The Beautiful One was unquestionably the NFL’s top pass rusher for a stretch of about a half dozen years. Carl Eller is in (and should be). Jack Youngblood is in (and should be). Dan Hampton is in (and should be). Harvey should be, too.
