NFL News:

  • Ben McAdoo looks destined for Cleveland.
    • They are also looking at Mike Mularkey, because if you put all the 2017 failure in one basket you can’t help but germinate success!
  • Get the the-NFL-helps-the-Patriots conspiracy bandwagon fired up: Leonard Fournette was in a car accident Tuesday morning.
    • He was rear-ended, the head of a three-car incident. As his was the last to be impacted, he was able to drive it home.
    • No injuries were reported.
  • Aaron Rodgers has moved on from Olivia Munn to Danica Patrick.
    • May I be the one to use this data and politely ask that we now cease with the “no homo” attitude around Mr. Rodgers references?
      • It’s quite stale.

  • Rumblings in Steeler nation that some in the ownership group want Mike Tomlin removed as head coach.
    • Florio is the point man on this story.
      • He says it comes down to issues about team discipline and lack of situational urgency.
        • “As one source observed, Pittsburgh would be undefeated if Bill Belichick were the coach, given the talent on the roster.”

Finally, in what may be the greatest story I steal from Crimebeat! all year, an Eagles fan named Taylor Hendricks (of course) was arrested Saturday night for punching a police horse after being ejected from the Falcons-Eagles game for intoxication.

  • From FOX Sports Philadelphia:
    • Police say it all started when the 22-year-old Whitehall Township resident got ejected from the Eagles-Falcons game for being intoxicated and not having a ticket. After he got tossed, police say Hendricks approached a mounted police officer—punching his horse repeatedly in the face and neck, then striking the officer in the legs.

  • He was charged with aggravated assault, illegally taunting a police horse, simple assault and defiant trespass. He could also receive an animal cruelty charge when he next appears in court January 30th.
  • The CBS link above helpfully includes related video of a Newcastle fan punching a horse, for context & visualization purposes.
    • I don’t want to show it; I need to show it. Really, it should be the cover page for each Saturday morning Lesser Footy post.
