NFL Owners Are as Petty as Teenage Girls

There have been some serious fireworks going on at the NFL owners meetings and Doug is here for it. From Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones going off on New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft to Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay calling for the removal of Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder, these owners are at each other’s throats. There’s nothing like billionaires fighting with other billionaires to put life into perspective.

Doug Gottlieb: “Owners are just as, if not more petty than you and I are...Here (are) guys with 3 commas, nothing should possibly bother them...People make teenage girls out to be the pettiest people on earth. I think NFL owners are right there, if not surpassed them.”

Nick Wright Makes His 2023 NBA Finals Prediction

Nick Wright: “Mark this down, the Mavericks will be the best offense in NBA history on a points-per-100 possessions status. The most efficient offense in NBA history— this year’s Dallas Mavericks. Christian Wood as a stretch five, I know they lost Jalen Brunson but they get Tim Hardaway back, a full year of Spencer Dinwiddie, Davis Bertans shooting everywhere, and did you see the sneaky move they got a little reunion for my guy Luka and the Real Madrid days, the last time he won a championship?? — CAMPAZZO coming off the bench. That will give us Luka against Embiid in the NBA Finals. In a summer where my large adult Slovenian son went back to Slovenia and laid off the cigarettes and laid into the other European teams, I think he’s going to get the league MVP, Finals MVP, and the NBA Championship. Mavs will win the title.” (Full Segment Above)

Watch Nick Wright make his 2022/2023 NBA predictions with the season having just tipped on Tuesday night, as Nick predicted the two semifinalists from both conferences, the NBA Finals matchup, and the NBA Finals champion, as well his pick for MVP.

On "60 Minutes," Jackson State HC Deion Sanders admitted he'd be a fool not to entertain any interest from teams in the Power 5 Conferences. 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe speculate how that interaction might go down and how the landscape of not only College Football, but potentially the NFL, would change.

Brady Quinn: "I think the only thing that you're probably thinking in the back of your mind is when you go to a HBCU, you feel like you're leaving a portion of that behind. Like the history of going there and building up that program to be able to compete at the level which it has, and then maybe even taking it up another level, I think that's the only thing you're thinking in the back of your mind."

LaVar Arrington: "It's larger than the game. It's cultural. Absolutely, that makes a lot of sense. I would also add the scrutiny is going to be different... But I'll tell you this, for him to be able to win in recruiting where he's at right now, if you put him in that type of environment where he has that much more resources, Deion would have the number one recruiting class within a year's time of being wherever it is he would go."

Hear where they think Deion can make the biggest difference.

Veteran Quarterbacks Losing Respect of Teammates

Veteran Quarterbacks Losing Respect of Teammates

Photo: Drew Angerer

We have become so accustomed to seeing guys like Tom Brady, Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers in the playoffs and rallying their teammates to glory that it’s a little jarring when they struggle, as they seem to be this season. Covino & Rich think they may have diagnosed the problem and it’s similar for all these guys: they are losing touch with their squads because they have become too aloof and unapproachable. It’s hard to command respect from guys who have to grind daily when you’re busy dancing the Macarena at the owner’s wedding.

Steve Covino: “Guess when you lose respect. When you’re yelling at an offensive line and you weren’t even there the day before...Are you really in this man? Because we’re living the regular day hustle...”

Rich Davis: “...And you’re doing the Macarena at Robert Kraft’s wedding!”

Lamar Jackson is an Elite 'Athlete', Not an Elite 'Quarterback'

Lamar Jackson is an Elite 'Athlete', Not an Elite 'Quarterback'

Jason Whitlock: “The first two weeks Lamar looked really good, but ever since then it’s been a pattern of inconsistent and erratic play. What did you see on Sunday?”

Jason Brown: “I saw Lamar being Lamar, this is what I know Lamar to be and this is what I know he cannot get out from underneath. This is what he is… You were up three points and you threw that ill-advised, horrible throw. Not only is it just mechanically horribly flawed, but the mistake in the mental capacity of it is a thing you cannot do and expect to ‘get the bag’, and expect to be an elite quarterback, which everyone thinks on Twitter that he is. He’s not an ‘elite quarterback’, he’s an ‘elite athlete’. The thing people get mistaken is this— there are athletes that play quarterback, and there are quarterbacks that are athletes. There is a huge misnomer going around. Lamar is an ‘athlete’ playing quarterback, he’s not a ‘quarterback’ who is athletic. That’s what I don’t think we quite understand out in the Twitterverse. We just see what we see because he’s a freak and he runs eight times a game and takes the ball 80 yards on occasion… Well, that’s what we want our RUNNING BACKS to do. They think I’m ‘hating’, it’s not hate, it’s not slander, I wish I could coach the kid, I would love to try and coach him, but he just continues to decline year in and year out mechanically, and at the end of the day, mechanics is the thing that cannot fail you. Your brain and your feet have to excel without thinking about it, and Lamar thinks too much because his mechanics are so bad that they fail him all the time.” (Full Segment Above)

Watch Jason Brown of Jason Whitlock’s ‘Fearless’, who was at one time a prominent football coach in the popular Netflix show ‘Last Chance U’, explain why he thinks Lamar Jackson’s slow start this season is simply ‘Lamar being Lamar.’

Check out the segment above as Brown expounds on why he thinks Jackson is an ‘elite athlete’ but not an ‘elite quarterback’, adding that he’s an ‘athlete’ playing quarterback, and not a ‘quarterback’ who is athletic.

Draymond's Documentary Was a Horrible Idea

Draymond's Documentary Was a Horrible Idea

The Odd Couple Chris Broussard and Rob Parker explain why they believe Draymond Green's self-produced documentary highlighting his infamous punch of teammate Jordan Poole was a horrible idea. Not only did the documentary open up fresh wounds, but it lends itself to the idea that Green is more worried about his media career than playing basketball and could ultimately lead to him being traded to a new team down the road.

Chris Broussard: "We get you're in the media. We get you do your podcast. That's fine, but let it go. Jordan (Poole) has forgiven you, Jordan is being professional, he's moving on as is the rest of the team. Don't take the scab off... Draymond has been volatile, there's no doubt about it. But still, everybody has liked him for the most part. Charles Barkley was volatile when he played but everybody liked him and his personality. But this is the type of thing that could make people think, 'Man, this dude is selfish'."

Major Update Given on Tua Tagovailoa's Injury Status

Major Update Given on Tua Tagovailoa's Injury Status

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is preparing to return to the starting lineup for his team's Sunday Night Football matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7, head coach Mike McDaniel announced on Monday (October 17).

Tagovailoa was been in concussion protocol following the Dolphins' September 29 Thursday Night Football loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, but was cleared last week and began football activities ahead of Miami's Week 6 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, though still inactive for the game.

McDaniel he felt "really good" about his decision to let Tagovailoa return to the practice field ahead of his first full week of practice since experiencing the concussion.

"He's a captain. He's a captain for a reason, and as I've told you guys from the onset, I think he's a very, very good player at that position," McDaniel said via ESPN. "So very good players, they definitely give people a boost -- not because of what other people aren't but more just because he is who he is. So he's a strong fabric of this team, and that's exciting when you get to go play with one of your brothers, which is why the team will be excited, and it will be exciting."

Tagovailoa has reportedly consulted with four independent specialists, including a leading sports concussion neurologist and top neuropsychologist, since suffering the concussion last month.

Rookie Skylar Thompson started at quarterback in Week 6, but was injured midway through the game and replaced by veteran Teddy Bridgewater, who was previously alos in concussion protocol, but cleared for the game after McDaniel had already named Thompson as the starter.

Tagovailoa was ruled out of the Dolphins' Week 4 loss after experiencing head and neck injuries during a sack with 2:50 remaining in the second quarter, the team confirmed.

On September 27, the NFL confirmed it was reviewing whether Miami followed its league concussion protocol after Tagovailoa temporarily exited the team's win against the Buffalo Bills on September 25 for what was initially reported to be a head injury.

McDaniel had previously reiterated that an independent specialist evaluated Tagovailoa on Sunday and the team complied with the NFL's protocol during his postgame press conference.

"That's why the NFL has these protocols, and there's not like every single NFL game that is played," McDaniel said via NFL.com. "There's an independent specialist that specializes in specialty brain matter, so for me, as long as I'm coaching here, I'm not going to fudge that whole situation. If there's any sort of inclination that somebody has a concussion, they go into concussion protocol; it's very strict. People don't vary or stray; we don't mess with that, we never have as long as I've been head coach, so it'd never be an issue that you guys have to worry about."

On October 1, the NFL Players Association exercised its right to fire the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant involved in clearing Tagovailoa to return in Week 2, ESPN reported.
