Yes. I have been a proponent of the Cowboys signing OBJ. It makes sense to me. But following his physical exam on Tuesday, the team has concerns that he may not be able to play until mid-January as he continues his recovery from a torn left ACL suffered in last year’s Super Bowl. Or that perhaps he will not be ready to go until 2023. I do agree with Lil’ Abner that a deal only makes sense if Beckham can contribute in this season’s playoffs. Absent that, I’d have to pass.
The Jimmy G legend grows! Surgery? Jimmy G don’t need no stinkin’ surgery! If the Niners are still playing seven weeks from now, #10 should be back in the huddle.
And Lamar Jackson should be back on the field in a week or so as he recovers from a sprained PCL suffered in last Sunday’s win over the Broncos. Since entering the NFL in 2018, Jackson has taken 877 hits. That’s an average OF 12.5 per game. That’s a lot.
Baker Mayfield’s NFL career is teetering on the brink. But he might be a pretty good fit in Sean McVay’s offense. Getting claimed on waivers by the Rams on Tuesday might be the best thing that could happen to Mayfield, and may even provide him a long-term opportunity with Matthew Stafford’s future now uncertain.
The Titans appear headed for their third straight AFC South Championship. But they will continue their season without general manager Jon Robinson, who was fired Tuesday team owner Amy Adams Strunk. Looks to me that it was Robinson’s offseason trade of wide receiver A.J. Brown to Philadelphia that got him canned. Brown caught two TD passes in the Eagles’ 35-10 win over Tennessee.
Congrats to TCU offensive coordinator Garrett Riley, who Tuesday was announced as the winner of the Broyles Award as the top college football assistant coach in the nation. No argument from me. The Frog offense leads the nation with 19 plays of 50 yards or longer, including ten that went for at least 60 yards. The 33-year-old Riley is the younger brother of USC head coach Lincoln Riley.
West Virginia QB JT Daniels is entering the transfer portal. He certainly knows how to find the door, since his new team will be his fourth, following stints at USC, Georgia and WV.
Let the receiver who has never screamed “Throw me the f^&%ing ball!” cast the first stone at Steelers rookie George Pickens. My sensibilities are not that fragile.
