Everything you need to know about the Seahawks last night. Russell Wilson was their leading rusher, with 16 yards.

Cowboys DT Trystan Hill didn’t just punch Raiders guard John Simpson after the whistle on Thanksgiving. He punched him after the game.  That’ll cost you two games, Brain Child.

While Mike McCarthy is out with COVID, Dan Quinn will serve as Cowboys head coach against the Saints. Dallas fans are praying the Cowboys don’t get off to a 28-3 lead.

Sure. Bucs, Packers, Cardinals (notice I didn’t mention the Rams or Cowboys) in the NFC. But I could absolutely envision a scenario in which the Niners catch fire. SF caught a break yesterday when we learned that Deebo Samuel will probably only miss one game with his groin strain. Looks like LB Fred Warner got off light with his hobbled hammy, too.

It’s good to be Kliffy. It is good to be Kliffy’s agent, too. Agent and client are now in the catbird’s seat. Kliffy’s Kards are 9-2, and now Au Jus is calling. Cha-CHING!!!!

Hooray for Hollywood, Lincoln.

I don’t blame Brian Kelly for heading to LSU. Makes sense. But the disrespect and disregard he showed his ND players in not letting them know before they learned of the move via social media is disgraceful. That’s “bad human being” stuff.

Luke Fickell next in South Bend?

OK, Georgia is in, even if the Bulldogs find a way to lose to Bama Saturday. But, understand, if Bama wins, they’re in, too. And should be. The Tide would be a one-loss SEC champion with a signature win over #1. I don’t want to hear any crying, bitching or conspiracy theories. (But, never mind, Bama ain’t gonna beat Georgia. Tide just ain’t gonna be able to block that front. I’m not completely sure the ’93 Cowboys could block that front.)  I’m kidding about that last part…probably.

My updated NFL Phonies List includes the Vikings, Chargers, Steelers and Browns, with the Cowboys currently closing fast on the rail.

On a knee for Lee Elder. Extremely well done, Good Sir.

Paul's Bio

I clearly have the attention span of your median fruit fly.Look! Airplane!

Sorry. I’m back.

It’s both a curse and a blessing. I’ve never bought this stuff about, “He who dies with the most toys wins.” But I do think that a wide range of life experiences helps us grow as people, and helps us better relate to other people. I’ve been fortunate. And I am beyond grateful.

I show up on time. I go like hell. I’m a good listener. I hold myself accountable. I own my mistakes. And I have a natural and an insatiable curiosity. I’m never afraid to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t. But then I try to find out.

The flip side is I’m a lousy ballroom dancer and my clothes sometimes fit me funny.

Stuff matters to me. I care. But while I take that stuff seriously, I try hard to never take myself seriously. As a result, I have sometimes been told, “Paul, it’s hard to tell when you’re serious and when you’re just having some fun. Which is it? Serious or fun?”

My answer is “yes.” But I think that is a legitimate criticism. I promise I’m going to work on that.

This has been the quickest and strangest half-century I’ve ever experienced. During that period, I’ve been afforded amazing opportunities in news and sports journalism across all platforms. I have taught wonderful students at the high school and collegiate level. Always, I learned more from them than they did from me. I’ve been a high school administrator. I spent ten seasons as a high school varsity football coach. I’ve been an advertising executive. I’ve hosted nationally syndicated television entertainment shows. In maybe the biggest honor I ever received, I was selected by NASA to be “Chet The Astronaut” for the “Land The Shuttle” simulator at Space Center Houston. (All I can say there, is “Do as I say, not as I do.” I put that thing in the Everglades more often than not.) Most recently, I just wrapped up a decade as a television news director, during which time our teams distinguished themselves in holding the powerful accountable, achieving both critical and ratings success.

What does all that mean? It means I am profoundly grateful. It also means I’m ready for “next.” So here we are. Radically Rational. It’s an idea I woke up with in 2017. I scribbled “Radically Rational” on a piece of notebook paper and used a magnet to stick it on our refrigerator. I saw it every day, and it just would not leave me alone.

I am second in charge at Radically Rational, LLC. My wife, Jo (also known as BB), is the president. Clearly, I have failed in my attempt to sleep my way to the top of this organization.

I hope you will learn that I’m loyal as a Labrador. But I will admit that this doggie can bite every now and then. My promise to you? I will show up on time. I will go like hell. I will listen to you earnestly and attentively. I will hold myself accountable. I will never be the least bit hesitant to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t.

But then I’ll try to find out. Let’s do it.
