Amidst the uncertainty surrounding the Cowboys’ 2022 offense, there is one comforting source of stability.
Dak is healthy. Unlike this time a year ago, when Prescott was still rehabbing 2020’s gruesome ankle injury, Dak is a full go at the Boys’ mandatory mini-camp. That will have a settling effect on everyone. There is plenty of work to be done after all the offseason reshuffling in the offensive line and receiving corps.
Here’s an interesting idea. Tony Pollard as Deebo? The Cowboys reportedly are tinkering with the idea of occasionally using Pollard as a slot receiver. I’m all in. That would be a matchup nightmare for some defenses, and would be a great way to get Pollard and Zeke on the field at the same time. Can you say, “big plays”?
Deshaun Watson says he’s sorry, OK? OKAY? I mean, the guy says he’s sorry about all of this. What the hell do you want? Jeez… Perhaps Watson should change his jersey number to “24.” In the meantime, do you know how much return the Browns are going to get from their $230 million dollar investment in 2022? Zero. He is not going to see the field.
NFL’s happiest head coach on Tuesday? John Harbaugh, when he looked out on the practice field and saw Lamar Jackson. Harbaugh probably didn’t stop smiling, even when Jackson threw two quick picks in the 11-on-11 period.
Most apprehensive coach? Kliff Kingsbury, who knows that Kyler Murray has both the ability and the willingness to destroy his team’s culture. Have I mentioned that I really, truly don’t like Kyler Murray?
Oh, and speaking of bad cultures. Look no further than Your Phoenix Suns. Women beware. Get busy, Adam Silver.
I’m a U.S. Open guy. It’s my favorite of golf’s major tournaments. It’s my country’s national championship, and it falls at a time of the year when it gets my full attention. What do I want for Fathers’ Day? I want to chill (since I can’t grill, but that’s another sad story), pop open some cold liquids and watch the final round of the Open until my retinas bleed. But there are some ill winds blowing that threaten to rip some of the fun out of the event. Mickelson said Tuesday, “Everyone is entitled to their opinion.” OK, Smarmy. Here’s mine. You’re an asshole. And a phony. And a sellout. And an ingrate. I hope there’s an 83 in your Thursday horoscope. Rory is not from America. Neither is Rahm. But they are both better “Americans” than you are, Smarm.
Cards’ pitcher Miles Mikolas came within one strike of a no-hitter against the Pirates last night in St. Louis. His last pitch of the night was his 129th. Go ice down that arm, young man.
You want efficiency? The ‘Stros scored four runs on a stretch of just nine pitches in the eighth inning of a 4-3 win over The Hated Texas Rangers.
The “Horns Down” gesture? Who cares? Certainly not I. Do it. Don’t do it. So what?
