My first conscious thought this morning was of Nick Chubb. I love football. I hate the carnage. All love and support for Nick, who now faces not only a football challenge but a life challenge as well. That’s the same knee that required complete reconstruction in 2015 while at Georgia.
I very much applaud ABC’s immediate decision not to show the gruesome angle of the replay. That would have served no purpose.
Yes, there was a football game. And, yes, the Steeler defense was scintillating, starting with a Pick-6 and taking it from there. When it comes to the top defensive player in the NFL, you can Bosa me this and Garrett me that, but I’ll take T.J.!
Offensively, we were reminded of how magical the connection of Pickett to Pickens can be. That looked like Bradshaw to Stallworth. Seventy-one yards is a long way.
You know I’m not crazy about “throwback” or “alt” unis. But those Browns threads—and helmets—were sweet. They can run that one back sometime if they’d like.
Just a couple of quick takes from the opener of the MNF double-header on ESPN. That was a sick one-handed grab by Chris Olave. And, remember somebody telling you that Bryce Young is just too slight in stature to operate in an NFL pocket? You do? Good.
Pay the man! I’m talkin’ ‘bout Number 15. The Chiefs finally did right by Mahomes. A restructuring of his contract will make him the highest-paid player in NFL history over a four-year span between now and 2026.
The Rams say they are trying to trade RB Cam Akers. That would be the best thing for all involved.
The underappreciated Adam Wainwright not only got his 200th career win Monday, he did it up the right way, pitching seven innings of four-hit ball in a 1-0 Cardinal win over the Brewers. The 42-year-old Wainwright is shutting it down after the season. Now he’s going out in style.
Astros? I don’t want to talk about it. At least Houston is still up by a game-and-a-half over both the Rangers and the Mariners.
Even Mickelson says he’s not gambling on football this season. I’m hip. Some of these lines have been ridiculous.
But here’s a tip for entertainment purposes only. Oregon is gonna pound Colorado this weekend.
Oh. One more thing. Baylah Still Nasty. Prayers and justice for the survivors of sexual violence.
