I just hope no one is expecting me to explain how Baker Mayfield did that. I’ll just defer to Al Michaels, who said, “This is silly stuff!”
But I will repeat something I said Tuesday, when the Rams claimed Mayfield off waivers. If Baker has any chance to fully resurrect his career, the Rams are a perfect fit. And Sean McVay is the perfect coach. His offensive system fits Mayfield like a glove.
There is a flip side to this story, of course. That was a franchise foundation shattering loss for the Raiders. That’s going to alter some lives in Las Vegas.
I’m both disappointed in and disappointed for Marcus Mariota, who has been benched as the Falcons’ starting quarterback in favor of rookie Desmond Ridder. I absolutely expected Mariota to play well this season. Man, was I wrong…
So now it’s “on to Cincinnati” for Deshaun Watson, who says he expects to play better for the Browns than he did in his NFL return last Sunday in Houston. That’s an achievable goal. Because he was god-awful.
This “toxic culture” thing with the Commanders is going to rock the NFL to its core. Mark my words. A lot of people are apprehensive, and one of them is named Roger Goodell.
Wayta go, Bijan Robinson! You are in fact the best college running back in the country, and the Doak Walker Award you received Thursday is richly deserved. And hell yes, Sonny Dykes is the Coach of the Year.
Seems the transfer portal can be a revolving door. South Carolina tight end Austin Stogner is transferring to Oklahoma, one year after he transferred to South Carolina from Au Jus. Who says you can’t go home again?
I’m guessing it feels pretty good to break an 11-game losing streak, as the Spurs did Thursday night against the Rockets. That was San Antonio’s first win since November 11.
It’s beyond sad to me that all Americans can’t just be happy that Brittney Griner is back home. Now let’s get Paul Whelan back, too.
Now…it’s game day, baby! C’mon, UIW Cardinals. Let’s get this!
