I’m not sure any other AFC team can beat the Buffalo Bills. But COVID-related internal division can.
“Breakthrough” infections (as much as I dislike that misleading term) are really stressing NFL teams. Nine Titans, including fully vaxxed QB Ryan Tannehill, have been placed on the COVID reserve list. Tennessee opens up Sept. 12 in Nashville against the Cardinals. This is going to impact that game. This kind of thing is going to impact a lot of games. All season long.
The NFL wants to stay ahead of this. The league now wants to test vaccinated players every seven days, instead of the current 14. That proposal needs approval from the NFLPA. The players association wants all players—vaxxed or unvaxxed—to be tested daily. I’m not sure where I stand on this. That’s what rational people often say when confronted with a complex question. I WILL get back to you.
Sony Michel to the Rams. Hmmm. That’s an interesting move for L.A., seeking an explosive RB after losing Cam Akers for the season.
Saquon back full-speed with the Giants. That’s good. The league needs Saquon.
Koepka and DeChambeau say they are going to bury the hatchet, presumably not between each other’s shoulder blades. Why? That feud is one of the best things golf has going for it! “Increase the Peace”? Hell, no. I say, “Propagate the Hate”!
Apparently this kumbaya bullshit is prompted by the upcoming Ryder Cup. Brooks and Bryson are gonna be “teammates” on the American team. Just for future reference, I really like golf. But there is nothing on Earff about which I care less than the Ryder Cup.
Immaculate is as Immaculate does. Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale struck out three Twins hitters on nine pitches last night. That’s known as an “immaculate inning.” It’s the third time Sale has turned that trick, equaled only by Sandy Koufax in major league history. So, in the Immaculate Annals, Sale has now passed Franco and pulled even with Sandy. Nobody will ever catch Mary.
