I’m trying to defend Davis Mills. I am failing. That late pick that set up the winning field goal for the Bears was inexcusable. Yeah, I know it was tipped, but…

But here’s what was worse. The Texans D gave up 281 rushing yards.

Bright spot for Houston? Rookie safety Jalen Pitre. Two picks, a sack and a TFL. For a Baylor guy, he’s all right…

After three weeks, 18 NFL games have been decided by three points or fewer, including six games on Sunday. The league does not lack for drama.

That had to be excruciating for the Bills, who couldn’t even get in position to attempt a game-winning FG in hot Miami. But really, Ken Dorsey? You had to tear up the coaching booth? Not cool. And busting up a Microsoft tablet? Who do you think you are, Tom Brady?

The Bills ran 90 offensive plays. The Dolphins ran 39. The Dolphins won.

So did Tua suffer a head injury or a back ding? The NFLPA wants to know. This could get dicey.

That was painful just to watch Justin Herbert. And I know he wanted to finish, but why was he still in the game late?

You know who might be pretty decent? The Jags. It’s amazing what an actual NFL head coach can do.

Perhaps some order has been at least temporarily restored to the AFC South, with both the Titans and Colts winning on Sunday.

Matt Ryan has fumbled seven times in three games. WTH?

Good sign for the Packers? LT David Bakhtiari looked solid in just his second appearance since tearing his left ACL almost two years ago.

A lot of media NFL Power Rankings have the Falcons dead last at 32. I disagree. And I’m happy that Mariota has resurrected his career.

Is it already over for the 0-3 Raiders? The Saints are teetering on the edge, too.

Brady v Mahomes next Sunday night! And both guys will be going in pissed.

Burrow was only sacked twice Sunday. That must have seemed like a church picnic for him.

They’re not really gonna play another one of those lame games in London next Sunday, are they?

Who would have thought that the Seahawks’ biggest problems would be on the DEFENSIVE side of the ball?

Do the Cardinals look as disorganized to you as they do to me?

At the moment, the Eagles are by far the best team in the NFC East. And that will remain true regardless of what happens tonight between the Cowboys and Giants. That one will probably come down to Saquon vs. Zeke.

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.
