NFL News:  

  • John Harbaugh wants the challenge rule changed.
    • He came to this conclusion after using both, and losing one, in the first 7 minutes of the Ravens loss to the Saints on Sunday.
    • Of course, he has no ideas, but doesn’t like that you have to win both to get a third.
  • Eli Apple – now a Saint.
    • The former first-round pick was shipped off to Breesusville at the cost of a 2019 fourth-rounder & 2020 seventh-rounder.
    • The other Eli – the one who couldn’t work a sneak on two tries from the one – remains gainfully employed in The Meadowlands.
  • Jason Garrett, talking like a man who thinks he has influence with the owner & more job security than brains, defends trading away a Number One pick to get Amari Cooper.
    • He says it’s “the price you have to pay” for a receiver like that.
      • The same receiver the Eagles offered a second-rounder for, which led the Cowboys to up their bid.
    • Dez Bryant, meanwhile, stares longingly at the phone from his home in DeSoto, Texas.
  • Oof – Chad Kelly was arrested Tuesday morning on a charge of first-degree criminal trespass.
    • It appears he got a little tipsy at Von Miller’s team Hallowe’en party & might have entered the wrong house with lovin’ on his mind.
      • His uncle Jim will have something to say about that, as long as the screws in his jaw hold.
    • Worse for Kelly, there’s a buck-toothed monster lurking the stadium & debating his fate:

  • Derek Carr is likely the next Gruden casualty, as reports are circulating that Carr has “lost the room”.
    • PFT derisively refers to it as “what appeared to be Carr crying in the melting-face way that a kid would cry after falling off his bike”.

Courtesy Deadspin, who paid the subscription to The Athletic, comes this quote, “It certainly didn’t help when film showed what looked like him crying after being sacked and injuring his arm. They saw his face. They heard his whimper.”

–  Because you can’t call people “soft” anymore.

  • Keep your eyes peeled for a future DFO-Con announcement: the Alliance of American Football will be hosting its first two championship games in Las Vegas.
    • PFT nailed down the logic in the AAF’s plan:
      • “The league nevertheless intends to cater to wagering, especially of the in-game variety. Which makes Las Vegas an ideal locale for the championship game.”
    • It will be a Saturday night title match on April 27 on CBS.
      • The games will be at Sam Boyd Stadium, and not the monstrosity the Raiders are having built for them.

Tonight’s sports:

Here’s a sentence you won’t here from me very often: the home plate umpire has called an incredible game tonight.

“Yankees suck” in the World Series. Be as smug as you want, Massholes, you’ll always be wanting. Even when winning.
