That is now quite the frat house in the AFC West now, is it not? Mahomes, Herbert, Carr and now Wilson.

Tuesday had to be a tumultuous day for a lot of Seahawk fans, as they first said goodbye to Wilson and later learned that legendary linebacker Bobby Wagner is a cap casualty.

Now, does Seattle make a run at Deshaun Watson? The Seahawks now have the draft capital. Your move, Grand Jury.

Reportedly, there are about 200 million reasons why Rodgers is staying in Green Bay, but I truly believe his relationship with Davante Adams was a big factor. One way or the other, the Packers were going to hold onto Adams, who would not have wanted to stay without Rodgers. Yes, I think there was a large amount of personal loyalty involved.

The Cowboys have used their franchise tag on TE Dalton Schultz. That’s their first move in trying to manage or at least massage what looks like an impossible salary cap mess. Dallas is going to lose some good players. Know this, Jerrah. I’M not taking a pay cut!

The Panthers are shopping Christian McCaffrey? Carolina is not going to get much for him. Don’t get me wrong. Unique player. Good guy. But he can’t stay on the field.

LSU men’s basketball coach Will Wade essentially got away with trying to buy a recruit a couple of years ago. He learned nothing, apparently. Here we go again, and this time Nancy Chuck Anna Anna is really pissed.  Goodbye, skunk. The Tiger football program is more than a little nervous, too.

Yep, if you read the tea leaves, baseball’s owners and players are now headed toward a resolution for this ridiculous work stoppage. I’ll bet you a cheeseburger they get it done by the weekend. But at this point the question may be, “Does Anybody Really Care?” Neither side is lovable in the slightest.

Don’t you just love a badass PGA Commissioner?  Be afraid, Mickelson. Monahan is gonna pop your smarmy ass.

Wishing the best for Deion Sanders. That’s some scary stuff. All support, Prime.

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.
