So, the Astros didn’t win the first one. The idea is to win the last one. But to do that, they’d better win the next one.
Meaning Game Two tonight.
Man up, Charlie Morton! You could only throw 16 pitches on a broken leg, Cupcake? Seriously, that was studly. Salute, and best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.
The Jolly Roger Tuesday restated that the Enneffell will not release its report on the WFT’s toxic culture. Goodell says the reason is that the league is committed to protecting the anonymity of witnesses who came forward. Some of those witnesses have already gone public and are demanding the league release the findings of the investigation. TBC. This boat is gonna get “leaky.”
I generally don’t believe coaches when they say “never.” But I believe Mike Tomlin when he says he will never take a college head coaching job. He’s an NFL lifer.
Now, James Franklin, on the other hand? He has a college head coaching job. And I think he’s going to get himself another college head coaching job. At either USC or LSU. Franklin was pretty evasive when asked about that at his weekly Penn State news conference.
I’m a guy. Guys make lists. So here’s my NFL QB Top Ten List. This is not a lifetime achievement award. It reflects my view of how they are playing this year, right now.
- Tom Brady (Yes. Still. Right now.)
- Dak Prescott
- Aaron Rodgers
- Kyler Murray
- Joe Burrow
- Josh Allen
- Derek Carr
- Lamar Jackson
- Justin Herbert
- Ryan Tannehill
Yes, I am aware of a certain AFC West QB who is not on this list. I’m also aware that if I expanded this list to 11, he still wouldn’t be on it right now. Matthew Stafford would be my “next guy up.”
It’s “Watch Yo Ass Wednesday!”
I am placing the following college football teams on “Upset Alert” as they head into Saturday’s matchups. (Potential tormentors in parentheses.)
Michigan (Michigan State)
Texas (Baylor) Yeah, I know Baylor is favored and at home. But UT bettah watch they ass! The Big Cigars would not be amused by a loss in Wacko By The Brazos.
Iowa State (West Virginia)
Arizona State (Washington State)
Oklahoma (Texas Tech)
Wake Forest (Duke)
Ole Miss (Auburn)
Ohio State (Penn State)
Notre Dame (Norff Carolina)
N.C. State (Louisville)
UCLA (Utah) Not sure that would be an “upset.”
Y’ALL ALL BETTA WATCH YO ASS!
