Zeke is iffy for Sunday’s game at Lambeau. I’d probably give him another week to heal from that gruesome-looking hyperextended right knee he suffered two weeks ago against the Lions.

Similarly, I think the Bills would be wise to hold out Josh Allen vs. the Vikings. His elbow injury, while described as “manageable,” is nevertheless cause for real concern. Buffalo is fortunate to have a backup QB the caliber of Case Keenum. The Bills can win with him.

Colts players say they were very impressed with new interim coach Jeff Saturday in their initial team meetings on Wednesday. Of course, they were. Saturday is a very impressive man. But that’s neither the question nor the issue. The organizational dysfunction in Indy has reached insanity. How would you like to be Sam Ehlinger, who will make his third start against the Raiders working with his third play-caller?

The Rams have placed Matthew Stafford in concussion protocol. Stafford displayed some symptoms following last weekend’s loss to the Bucs. If he can’t go Sunday, the 3-5 Rams will turn to backup QB John Wolford against the 3-6 Cards.

The U.S. Attorney’s office will make a “major announcement” regarding the Washington Commanders today at noon Central. The subject apparently is “financial improprieties.” Ruh-roh.

That’s five straight losses for the Spurs, if you’re counting. And they play the Bucks on Friday.

I’m happy for Jacque Vaughn, who has had his “interim” tag removed as coach of the Nets. I’m happy for him. Now it would be appropriate to pray for him. I would not want to wish that job on anyone.

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.
