Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t see why you pay Russell Wilson all that money only to take the ball out of his hands on fourth down and have some dude attempt a 64-yard field goal.

I’m sure he’ll be a good head coach. But at least for Monday night, you can’t spell Hackett without “hack.”  Not a good decision. And the clock management was atrocious.

Elated for Geno Smith. “They wrote me off. And I didn’t write back.”

Oh, and your Seattle Seahawks (complete with those tennis ball unis) are in sole possession of first place in the NFC West.

But the Hawks will miss safety Jamal Adams, who suffered a torn quad tendon. That’s a nasty injury.

People are asking me why the Cowboys don’t make a trade for Jimmy G. It’s because Jimmy G. has a no-trade clause, and he’s not going to waive it to come to that circus in Dallas.

Tyler Huntley? The Ravens would be fools to trade him. And the Ravens aren’t fools.

There’s no way of setting a sure date, but right now Dak’s return appears to be vectored toward that November 13 game at Green Bay in McCarthy’s return to Lambeau. Assuming McCarthy is still employed on November 13.

Easy, Robert Saleh. You’re going to fry your motor. Just keep doing what you’re doing. You have the right idea. Coaching in New York is no day at the beach.

There’s a lot riding on that second (or third or fourth) medical opinion that T.J. Watt is seeking. If he has to have pec surgery, that’s it for him in 2022. If not, there’s a chance he can return late in the season.

The Dodgers are in.

Mike Trout has homered in seven straight games. Let me type that again. Mike Trout has homered in seven straight games. That’s just one shy of the MLB record.

Framber Valdez pitched his first career shutout last night as the ‘Stros blanked the Tigers 7-0. That’s great. What’s greater is that he has now posed 24 consecutive quality starts. And what’s really great is that the Astros are now 41 games above .500.

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.
