Cooper Rush sees the field. And he’s cool as a Dreamsicle. But I’m still doubtful he will retire undefeated. That said, that was quite the feat last night. Not quite as impressive as re-routing an asteroid, but close.

3-0 as a starting quarterback and the engineer of three game-winning drives.

Now do everybody a favor and STHU, Lil’ Abner. There is no controversy here.

CeeDee gave us a life lesson. Just because something starts badly doesn’t mean it has to end badly. He showed genuine mental toughness.

One note about that one-handed catch in the end zone. Yeah, CeeDee made a helluva play, but I was actually even more impressed with Rush’s throw. Zero margin for error.

Yes, Cowboy fans. There are things to be optimistic about. Starting with that defense, which now leads the NFL with 13 sacks.

Looks like that’s it for the season for Giants receiver Sterling Shepard, who left Monday’s game against the Cowboys with what appeared to be a severe knee injury. And that poor guy just got through rehabbing an Achilles tear.

Niners’ left tackle Trent Williams will miss 4-6 weeks with a severe high ankle sprain. SF could be in real trouble.

But Williams’ ankle is not in nearly as bad shape as Mac Jones’. I don’t know what the Patriots are going to do. Bryan Hoyer? Bailey Zappe?

And the Chargers are dropping like flies. Left tackle Rashawn Slater tore his left biceps tendon (OWWWW!) and edge rusher Joey Bosa will be out indefinitely with a groin injury.

Bolts’ QB Justin Herbert, he of the fractured rib cartilage, was sacked four times and was hit 17 times in that loss to the Jags. Holy moly…

I probably enjoyed watching Favre play as much as I’ve enjoyed any NFL star in my lifetime. But I’m not going to be able to get past this. Disgusting. I applaud Sirius XM Radio for suspending his weekly show.

Dear Texas Tech. Identify that knucklehead that shoved a Longhorn player. Ban him. Prosecute him. Draw him and quarter him.

What’s gonna happen with the scheduled Sunday game between the Chiefs and the Bucs in Tampa? Everybody err on the side of caution and safety, please.

Bills OC Ken Dorsey says he’s sorry for wrecking that coaching booth in Miami. Hey, the man said he’s sorry, OK?

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.
