The Rams are getting good at this, wouldn’t you say? Bobby Wagner. Yeah, that Bobby Wagner. That’ll take a little of the sting out of losing Von Miller to the Bills. I know . Wagner is 31. But I also know he made a career high 170 tackles in what turned out to be his final season in Seattle.
I find Bruce Arians’ explanation for leaving the sidelines and heading upstairs to be perfectly satisfying. After Brady “retired,” I’m sure Arians didn’t want to look like a carpet-bagging frontrunner. But once TB-12 came back, that presented Bruce with a perfect opportunity to hand the baton to Todd Bowles. I don’t view this move as the least bit “suspicious.” And Thursday’s news conference was vintage Bruce, which is always worth the price of admission.
It’s April, which always scares the hell out of me. But I digress. It’s also draft month. I think the very best player available is Alabama OT Evan Neal. Big, fast, quick, smart, prideful and more than a little nasty. There is NOTHING not to like about that guy.
The formal announcement will come Saturday, but Manu is headed for the Naismith basketball HOF, along with 15 other members of the Class of ’22. His ability to morph into whatever his team needed in any given game is what I’ll remember most about his 16 seasons in San Antonio.
Any time anybody gets a step on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is noteworthy. Giannis with 44 Thursday night in the Bucks’ 120-119 OT win over the Nets to move past Kareen on Milwaukee’s all-time scoring list.
That was a fun ballgame last night in the NIT Final in New York. Fun, unless you were the Aggies. Xavier prevails 73-72 in a game that produced 17 lead changes. Ags finish the season 27-13.
Defending champ Jordan Spieth has some wood to chop after one round of the Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio. His Thursday even par 72 leaves him seven back of first round leader Russell Knox. Matt Kuchar is in a good spot, two shots off the lead.
