Maybe the NFL returns to “normalcy” this week after a week 2 of week 14-like upsets (Tampa Bay over New Orleans, Minnesota over Detroit, Jets over Indianapolis, Browns over Titans, Jaguars over Dolphins, Giants over Washingtona��no, wait).
Or maybe nota��perhaps the Jets do keep winning. Perhaps Philadelphia never wins again. Perhaps Dallas wins without all those suspended and injured players (they will). Maybe New Orleans makes believe it’s a real football team.
Same for Seattle. Especially Seattle.
Can you see the headlines now? “Seattle wins in Chancellor’s return.” Kam Chancellor ends his holdout just in time to take credit for Seattle breaking into the win column at last, even though he does nothing but watch passively from his safety position. I can see his next tweet: “Kept ma word to ma bro, Marshawna��he’s a sinner, we’re a winner and the Legion of Doom is back from Hell.”
But the real NFL news came out of Jay Gruden’s postgame remarks after Thursday’s loss to the NY Giants (wait, the Giants won?). The Redskins coach began down the road toward his own firing process by endorsing the “sterling” performance of quarterback Kirk Cousins.
Cousins was awful. Two picks, three turnovers. Couldn’t play his way out of poor field position, which resulted in the Giants blocking a punt for a safety.
Gruden says however, his team just has to do a better around him. And I need to change my jeans everyday, but I keep wearing the same ones (you thought I’d say my “underwear,” didn’t you?).
Yo, Jay, this is the road to oblivion, sticking to and believing in a loser. Robert Griffin III was drafted in the first round for a reason. He won a Heisman Trophy in college. Kirk Cousins played behind Brian Hoyer in college, which should tell you everything you need to know about him.
I’m just trying to decide: Will Jay Gruden join brother Jon on the quarterback-grilling show on ESPN or will he be a coordinator again next year
We keep hearing all this talk about Chip Kelly being racist, perhaps, in his personnel dealings with the Eagles. I don’t recall him benching a black quarterback though.
