NFL Notes:

  • Looking like his mom also told him that he’s the most handsome boy on the team, Brock Ostweiler brushed off questions that he’s not ready to be the Browns’ starting QB:
    • Are you good enough to be a starting quarterback? “Absolutely. Absolutely.”
  • Not understanding what it means to be a Tom Coughlin quarterback, Blake Bortles has recognized that he needs to cut down on the stupid turnovers.
    • a mocking note in the story points out that “those 16 interceptions last season were a career-low for the third-year quarterback”.
  • Luke Kuechly wants people to stop asking him about concussions.
    • Other Luke Kuechly doesn’t mind answering the questions.

    

Finally, your long read of the day comes from ESPN, who has a breakdown on the frictions in the Seahawks locker room, and how the difference in held-to standards has kept them from winning the multiple Super Bowls they feel they’ve deserved.

It highlights the divide between offence & defence, and exposes the hard feelings that have not yet proved water under the bridge. It also lays the groundwork for the demolition of the “Legion of Boom” after this season, when contracts begin to expire.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Game 7: Sens at Pens – 8:00PM | NBCSN / CBC / Sportsnet
  • NBA:
    • Game 5: Cavaliers at Celtics – 8:30PM | TNT / TSN
  • MLB:
    • Rangers at Red Sox – 7:30PM | Sportsnet1

CFL training camps open this weekend.

‘BOUT TIME!

I wonder how long before someone edits Trump shoving his way past other heads of state into the scene from Coming to America when the woman pushes through the crowd to announce Akeem’s future bride.

I’d do it if I had any patience.

So… go Ice Titans, I guess. Though considering the last year or so in sports/the world, that’s a touch of death.

I think that the Browns sign a couple new not-sure-thing QBs each year while drafting wisely everywhere else is proof that DePodesta has a brilliant plan whose success is contingent on finding a quality qb — the one position that is his secret weakness because his metrics can’t measure leadership.

In three years, he’s gonna hand over the keys of a Ferrari to fucking Tim Tebow.

ballsofsteelandfury

Three???

WCS

In all seriousness, congrats Scotchy and Maestro. Great season for the Sens, and yinz guys were genuine good sprots through this series.

Gratliff

This is a classic Yinzer trick. Don’t listen to him!

blaxabbath

Yinz all make proud.

King Hippo

I enjoyed the polite DFO rivalry-ing, yinz were all awesome folk.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I still don’t get the yinz thing or hockey, but laurels and hearty handshakes all around.

The important thing is that I stopped caring as soon as the Blackhawks were out.

I am neutral as to who wins the final now, so methinks I can quit watching. Sad for Canadia.

Senor Weaselo

I for one am ready to get tragically/hilariously shot down by our robot overlords.
