Posted Saturday April 05, 2014, About: Jerry Jones' daughter has threatened to quit
This is it, this is the reason why the Cowboys football-directional is turned off (since last, brief taste of glory): "AT&T Stadium."

The complex is Jerry Jones & family's purpose in life while the football operation an inconvenience or simple party-enhancer. The fans, players and NFL deserve much better, but who'd complain?
Posted Wednesday April 02, 2014, About: Manziel's first pre-draft visit: New England
The Kraft-Belichick Patriots are an 'equal opportunity employer,' with emphasis on opportunity (See; Tebow), not employer. Course, Timbo was rather particular as to how his skills would be employed, i.e., nix on the tight-end thing, so the rumor went. John might take a different tack.

And, "Patriots' interests is almost certainly...advanced scouting?" That's cute. Maybe NE knows something you don't, BH ("(John)...potential No. 1 overall"), like, he ain't goin' "No. 1?"
Posted Friday March 28, 2014, About: NFL coach pans Manziel's 'sideshow'
Mike's frankness is refreshing, in light of how many in the junior media seemed to have fallen hard for John, selling him like they're on the Nike payroll.
Posted Thursday March 27, 2014, About: Manziel's pro day draws former president
Yes indeedy (See; Marbury v. Madison). They need "Like" buttons here, or would that ruin the mood?
Posted Thursday March 27, 2014, About: Manziel's pro day draws former president
NFL has little, short-lived or no interest in simple notoriety (See; Tebow). John & key-chains better get any favored $-deals in writing soon.
Posted Friday March 21, 2014, About: Broncos lacking leadership
What "voice" does this Denver Post writer want to hear? And how does "ranked 22nd" in D translate into lack of "leaders?" It's not good but it's not disasterous, either. Maybe it was a lack of skilled play or coaching.

I think this person has a Richard Sherman obsession. Dick's mouth isn't what turned the trick for Seahawks, Jimmy Olsen. That's 'High school Harry.'
Posted Thursday March 13, 2014, About: Thunder GM: League to blame for tank talk
That's cute, Sammy, your test for tank is a sabermetric scan of 'suckiness,' lousy teams over "last 20 seasons?" Like that'll reveal "evidence?" Former Toronto GM Bryan Colangelo's recent admission to "tanking" has no bearing in your assessment?

It's no wonder NBA's in trouble w/ cufflinks like yourself at the top, Presti. At least Bryan admitted his bad play, though, its done nothing to change the League's "narrative" on this disturbing topic, nor force rule changes that might deter such fraudulent shenanigans as tanking and only served to give greedmeisters a new misnomer to cover their misdeed: "rebuilding."
Posted Sunday March 09, 2014, About: Albert Pujols: Mike Trout isn't in my league yet
Bingo. And fact Albert drops "Barry Bonds" into his answer doesn't help his argument...or future HOF ballot.

But another punk-reporter, query-statement that another athlete fielded too fast & bobbled.
Posted Friday February 28, 2014, About: Age discrimination may push Woodson to retire
Phase II: when private negotiations stall, some agents / players, owners / GMs take 'em public.

Sure Raiders "want him back," he's capable enough, kind of attitudinal so don't know how much leadership he provides, a name-attraction (FHOF'er w/some). Age, in sport especially, matters, and Charlies & agent know it.

Incentive-laden contract: $1.5M for the above, .5-1M more for 50+ tackles (not Charles' strong-suit), 3-5 INTs, etcetera.
Posted Monday February 17, 2014, About: Manziel: 'I want to be a pocket passer'
Manziel: "You have to...create plays." Wrong, John. That's college-think, where 'coach don't coach' with a guy like out there, but not the pros. In World-NFL, coach & staff "create" the plays, you execute 'em and on rare occasion, improvise if & when the "play breaks down."

If run-QB clings to fear-flight ("create"), he'll never learn to "pick apart defenses and beat teams with his arm." Can't have it both ways. Wilson didn't run 'Hawks to title-town.

Not surprising, but telling comments to GMs & coaches. John's a project.
Posted Friday February 14, 2014, About: Vikings may fire Rick Spielman if he fails to find a QB
That'd be like boycotting the grocer for a shortage of flour or Raisin Bran. They get what the market gives. A "franchise quarterback" is hard to come by, and now run-QB (always a project, unless you're Pete Carroll) filling up the draft, it's harder than ever.
Posted Friday January 17, 2014, About: Jets message to Rex: Win ... or else
Extending Ryan was a no-brainer (obvious), getting him a capable QB is gonna' be the tough part, and Johnson knows it. Geno played...fine, for a rookie, but he's a project and Sanchez a question-Mark.
Posted Wednesday November 27, 2013, About: McCarthy fuels QB drama
Finally, a title in T&R that makes sense.
Posted Monday November 18, 2013, About: AP now part of Vikes' problem
With just 23+ sacks allowed (MN-OL), maybe the line is forging those "holes" you see AP "dancing at," but pass-block is a whole different world than run-blocking & lane opening.

Adrian set himself up for some this criticism with his personal, rather selfish goal setting (rush record), pre-season, though the press seemed to eat it up heartily.

You'd know better than I, S/T staffer, but you don't have to watch these Vikings' games to know that, just like winning, losing can be infectious and can bring down a entire team. I'd pull back a bit off Adrian and spread the blame for Vikings' malaise accordingly.
Posted Friday November 15, 2013, About: Titans giving up on Locker
Title guy (or gal): Where do you get "giving up" from "undecided (IR)?" A lot can happen between now and the 2014 draft (May).
Posted Wednesday November 13, 2013, About: Thanksgiving return for Rodgers (or before?)
Go for broke, title-guy (or gal?): "Thanksgiving return for Rodgers (or before?)(or after or neither or maybe I'll know for sure when I get home from school, or maybe not)."
Posted Sunday November 10, 2013, About: Report: Texans' Arian Foster out for season
Good to be in top-form and wish Arian the best on his recovery, but if the "Church Lady" followed the NFL faith she might say, "How conveeeeeeenient (Carvey)."
Posted Saturday November 02, 2013, About: Johnny Manziel would be perfect QB for Eagles
You're too generous ("journalists"), Doc.

Flash QB (Manziel, Kaep, RG3, Vick, Tebow, Pryor) "think fast on (his) feet?" That's cute. In fact, he doesn't "think" (read) period, beyond 'play designed' and then fear-flight. He doesn't know how to read NFL defense 'cause nobody taught him in college. But if you knew "sports,", you'd already know as much.

NFL single-wing tailback went out with the 30s but the kids eat him up in the new millenium. Guess they think he's cool, when he's not rehabbing or freezing-up on Super Sunday.
Posted Friday October 25, 2013, About: Gonzalez back to Kansas City?
Interesting rumor-seed, NFP. And it might've grown if...
It wasn't such a weak move (bail on ATL now);
If Tone's season truly was "wasted" ($7M in '13);
The "(HOF)-bound" Gonzalez hadn't lost a step; and
Andy Reid had any interest in the, as GL18 (9) put it, "Get (TG) a (SB) Ring movement."
Posted Sunday October 20, 2013, About: Report: Trent Richardson's entourage worried Browns
So, you're not married to "strictly" here, NFP?
Posted Thursday October 17, 2013, About: Jets QB predicts his own greatness
Nothing here (NYP / SI) "predicts his (Geno's) own greatness." Reasonable response.

As usual, punk reporter baits an athlete with a leading question (" will be an elite (QB)?"), and he takes the bait. Some jocks were taught how to handle queries from media (Manning on Irsay cmts), others need some coaching.
