Has Garcia not seen Garnder Minshew and Ryan Fitzpatrick? Those guys aren’t reminding anyone of 1990s Steve Young either and yet they’re cool to dress like they want I suppose?

Pete Carrol may want to think about Metcalf on defense. At least there would be one guy on that unit able to run down, and tackle.

That was an amazing play, at the same time, I’m glad our league doesn’t give offensive players points for tackles.

Got to admit, wouldn’t have paid this any mind if this article hadn’t been written here. Not sayin’ ahmbout to rush out and download the podcast, but I can appreciate where Jaleel is coming from.

Just added the podcast to my “listen to” list. Most times we don’t hear enough about the child stars who’ve gone on to lead productive, “uninteresting” lives- should be some good conversations.

In being a member of this exclusive fraternity of former child stars, Jaleel has no interest in exploiting any of his troubled peers for clicks or downloads. Instead, he prefers to offer support while also holding them accountable for their actions, or only revisiting those prior struggles after those demons have Read more

AKA White guy. Its like this during draft time too, whenever someone wants to say something shitty about a black player in the draft, its always anonymous and usually probably a white guy.

As Sean Doolittle of The Washington Nationals said “Sports is the reward for a functioning society.” In 2020 we became a malfunctioning one and no one has the balls to say why. COVID-19 and other issues forced us to take a good hard look at ourselves and the country we call home. If you came out of this thinking we Read more

Yeah, but given the fact that you were likely home with access to bigger screens, why would you watch on your phone? Isn’t the point of this where you could watch a quick show on your phone while in a cab, waiting for a customer a lobby somewhere or generally finding yourself with 15 minutes to waste? It’s like Read more

I love the attempt to blame COVID on it not being received well. A lack of empty time was *not* one of the issues I was facing during lockdown or since.

In the Tank for Trevor sweepstakes The Jets hold the pole position but they will find a way to screw it up. If The Jets do somehow wind up with the No.1 pick he needs to pull an Elway or Eli. There is no way in hell I would go to that dumpster fire of a team. Oh can someone tell me what the hell The Eagles are doing?

Thanks to the beauty of Directv I stayed with this game as it was the only 1pm game worth staying with. I mean Crennel coached under Parcells and Belichick I have no clue what he was doing. The Miami Dolphins thank him for his stupidity

Not sure how you skipped interim Texans head coach Romeo Crennel’s decision to try for two after going up seven on the road with less than two minutes left. I know he’d been rewarded for a couple of risky moves earlier but that was a head-scratcher. Result? Conversion is no good, Tennessee drives the field for the TD, Read more

As a native resident of Los Angeles, all I can say is that there is much agreement among us to the number of professional basketball teams in the City of Los Angeles. There are two. The Los Angeles Lakers, and the Los Angeles Sparks...we will not be taking new applications...that is all.

Seriously, why is this not the very first bullet point in the “You shall not do” list of every single contract signed by athletes.
They always include things like ‘no playing pick-up basketball’, ‘no motorcycles or ATVs’, etc. even though athletes getting injuring from those activities are rather rare. Yet I’ve lost Read more

“If the NBA was high school, Kyrie has skipped more classes than Ferris Bueller.”

The irony is that high school was the last time he *was* healthy. Dude played 11 games at Duke. And he wasn’t even the best big-shot option there! That was Nolan Smith and Kyle Singler, who won a national championship- with a worse Read more
