NFL News:

  • Dust off those Tebow rumours – Josh McDaniels is now the Colts head coach.
    • Based on the premise Andrew Luck is broken forever & not even Jesus can save him.
      • Although, Jacoby Brissett must be happy to see a familiar face in Gravytown.
    • A press conference Wednesday will make it official.
  • UPDATE: CANCELLED!
    • The new rumours are that McDaniels has language that will promise him the head coaching job if/when Belichick quits/is forced out.
      • Belichick’s contract runs through 2018.
  • Good news: DeShaun Watson ran for the first time on Monday in his rehab from knee surgery.
    • It was on a treadmill, and the article throws out RGIII warnings, but it seems like a positive step for a kid who lit it up last year.
  • Bad news: Ryan Shazier isn’t able to walk on his own (yet)
    • This counters Adam Schefter claiming Shazier has a regular walking routine.
    • You kinda hafta believe the player over the rumourmonger.

  • According to NFL Network, “a perfect storm of issues” contributed to Malcolm Butler not playing Sunday.
    • Among them:
      • He was sick & missed Opening Night
      • A week of bad practices
      • An unspecified violation of team rules (curfew?)
      • Attitude
    • It’ll likely be up to Butler to spill the beans, but not until he knows what 2018 holds for him & where he’ll be playing – lest he get Kaep’d.
      • Because it would be like Grumblelord to fuck the kid over if he speaks out of turn about discipline.
        • As evidenced by Butler’s afternoon Tweet-splanation.

  • A total of 326 players have been invited to the scouting combine February 27 through March 5.
    • Among that number are 30 RBs & 19 QBs
      • Not all invitees are expected to attend.
    • They better name-tag the janitors, or the Browns might try to draft them.
  • This slid under the radar last week, but FOX paid $550 million/year for the Thursday Night broadcasts through 2022.
    •  It amounts to 11 games between Weeks 4 and 15 (excluding Thanksgiving Night), or $50 million per week.
      • Up from the $45 million CBS & NBC paid.
    • One key to the deal: FOX doesn’t have to use their #1 team for the game, so no Joe & Troy on Thursdays.
      • I know we’re all crushed.

Finally, it doesn’t seem big enough to garner an investigation, but prop-bet site TopBet.eu lost $41,000 on Timberlake’s choice of Prince song.

  • Two individuals places multiple bets against declining odds on “I Would Die 4 U” being the Prince song covered.
    • Starting Thursday, the odds went from 50-1 to 25-1, then 18-1, then 10-1, then 8-1 before closing at 5-2. The odds dropped with each bet placed by the same people.
  • Looking at multiple sites, it appears that “Let’s Go Crazy” was the favourite.

    • Vegas at Penguins – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
    • Wild at Blues – 8:00PM | NBCSN

The banner pic is from Deviant Art; when I saw it I figured it would be good for the site. I never questioned clicking on the site at work. Figured it would be safe. MR. SCHOOL BOARD DIDN’T THINK SO!

I moonlight as a tutor and the kid I tutored tonight broke down in tears for an hour because he’s having “dark thoughts” due to his grades not being good enough to go straight into university.

Parents seriously need to chill with that shit. He didn’t even know he could go to a community college and transfer into a university, or the fact many university teachers teach at the college level because universities rather create new jobs for bureaucrats than to give teachers tenure. In other words, get taught by a university teacher at a fraction of the price. Or the fact for what he wants to do, the local Institute Tech is better suited for his needs and has a lower GPA requirement.

McDaniels is not going to be the Fat Humps head coach anymore. That’s going to make things awkward now that the Clots will likely can the assistants they just hired at McDaniels’ requests.

When Josh McDaniels was coaching Denver he had two cars at work and would make a show of pulling up front being the “first one in the building”, in the afternoon he’d sneak out and drive the second vehicle home and spend the evening with his family, then sneak back and make a show of leaving late. Then he’d ridicule employee who “didn’t feel it was important enough to put in the time.” This is just one of his Little Caesar moves.

Just do your job.

Well, there’s the problem. Why the hell does he have a home family?

FOOTBALL IS FAMILY!

Not the point, but what the hell.

He needs a domestic life to rule over in a passive aggressive and micromanaging way too.

This might be a good thing for the Colts in the long run.

Even the Sixers win. Unheard of.

WCS

Angelo Cataldi can’t wait to take credit for Philly’s success.

Gratliff

I always hated WIP, but never as much as when I came back home after college to find out it was moved to FM and replaced my favorite hard rock station that I’d listened to through my entire childhood. I hate the personalities, I hate the crews, I hate the fans. I hope Spike Eskin dies by trampling at the parade.

WCS

Cataldi said Chip Kelly would be a generational talent as coach, and that Doug Pederson would be worse than Ray Rhodes.

I wonder how much he’s been been congratulating himself since Sunday, since he retroactively became Doug’s biggest supporter.

Gratliff

I’m one of the 99.5% of Eagles fans who didn’t like the Pederson pick. I’m also one of the 100% of Eagles fans who would high five him while he fucked their wives right now. I’m extremely okay with both of these facts. The best thing we can do is wipe out all sports radio, so the guys who do it can go back out into humanity and relearn that it’s okay to be wrong.

WCS

Where’d everybody go? I didn’t think my camera was when I was jerking off, what gives?

Man – I’m so depressed about Card’s near-future (and then, forever). They’re never going to be anywhere near competitve for a long time. 49ers to SEA to RAMMIT…..

Other Brandon dragging the shit out of Cris Colinsworth for his catch review bullshit is a good second to the Brady drop.
