For the first time, Deshaun Watson has expressed remorse. After earlier claiming he had “no regrets,” Watson said, “I want to say I’m truly sorry to all the women I have impacted in this situation” in a recorded television interview.
Watson started Friday’s preseason game against the Jaguars, completing one of his five pass attempts for seven yards. That could prove to be it for him in 2022.
But you know who did look good? Trevor Lawrence. Seriously. As a matter of fact, the entire Jacksonville offense was sharp. It appears that having an actual, professional NFL head coach is a good thing.
The Jets are sweating out the condition of QB Zach Wilson’s right knee. Wilson went down without contact in the first quarter of NY’s 24-21 win over the Eagles. Looks like it’s his PCL, the same injury to the same ligament in the same knee that kept him out of four games last season.
Cowboy fans being Cowboy fans are already assuming Dallas will repeat as NFC East Champions. The Eagles will have something to say about that. Philly is a good football team, and Jalen Hurts is getting the hang of all this. He looked great, going 6-6 for 80 yards, and popping up defiantly after he took a horrendous out of bounds hit from Jets LB Quincy Williams. I don’t blame Eagles coach Nick Sirianni for momentarily displaying his homicidal side. That hit by Williams was disgusting.
Packers backup QB Jordan Love threw three picks against the Niners. But it looked to me like exactly zero of them was his fault. Green Bay coach Matt LeFleur appeared to agree.
Trey Lance? Solid. And the Niners were no doubt encouraged by his 76-yard, deep-ball, sideline TD pass to rookie Danny Gray. Lance was reluctant to push the ball downfield as a rookie last season.
No Dak tonight in the Cowboys’ preseason opener against the Broncos. I’m fine with that decision.
So I’ll keep an eye on how Texans second-year QB Davis Mills does in his stint against the Saints. I’m bullish on that guy.
Padres’ shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. said all the right things following his 80-game PED suspension. “Accident.” “No excuse.” Yada Yada. But it’s clear it’s not playing well with his teammates, many of whom openly expressed their “disappointment.” Keep in mind that Tatis was already making minor league rehab starts as he recovered from a wrist injury that resulted from a motorcycle accident last December, followed by surgery on that wrist in March. Time to grow up?
Astros win. Yankees lose. The Daily Double!
