Chris Broussard: "Aaron Judge is doing something historic, he’s tied for the Yankees record for homeruns and American League record and on top of that he’s going for the Triple Crown."

Rob Parker: "I’m convinced he’s having the best season ever. It’s not about the homeruns; it’s about where we are in this game. The season, we've had the lowest batting average out of any season in the MLB, that’s where we are at. It’s harder to hit than ever! There used to be a time were teams had a couple pitchers, now they have 14 on their roster. And, only 14 guys have got the Triple Crown since 1876, and only two guys have done it since 1967. Every game and every at bat was meaningful for him and also the pressure for playing for a contract! When you wrap all those things together if he does earns the Triple Crown, homeruns not juiced up and AL homerun record – he will have the best season ever in baseball."

Chris and Rob layout what exactly needs to happen for Judge to have the best season of all time in the MLB.

Chris Nowinski: "The Dolphins and teams alike are trying to get away with situations like these all the time. All we’re doing is watching our heroes die way too young, and it’s a shame. If I was Tua, I wouldn’t come out to play for the Dolphins ever again. In this situation, with brainstem posturing – I would not have sent him home on a plane. We’re watching mistake after mistake after mistake. Two concussions in five days can kill you, I know these families and even if it doesn’t kill you it will be a life changing event – I know this, I had two in one week and it caused me a 15 year headache, sleep disorder and a long list I’m still trying to get over. The NFL needs to learn from this."

Former WWE wrestler and current CEO of the Concussion Legacy Foundation, Dr. Chris Nowinski joins The Jason Smith Show to discuss the recent Tua Tagovailoa head injuries.

Jason Whitlock: Why the Chiefs Don't Respect Eric Bieniemy

Jason Whitlock: Why the Chiefs Don't Respect Eric Bieniemy

Jason Whitlock: “My position on all of this is that Eric Bieniemy is in a tough spot. He’s the ceremonial offensive coordinator running Andy Reid’s offense, so that puts him in a tough spot where the players can take out their frustrations on Eric Bieniemy and not challenge Andy Reid. Trust me, if they’re going in at halftime sitting on the ball, that’s Andy Reid’s decision, not Eric Bieniemy’s. Patrick Mahomes is going off on Bieniemy because he can and because he doesn’t want to yell at Andy Reid so they’ve set up Bieniemy as this piñata and as the fall guy. Bieniemy is in a terrible spot being this figurehead offensive coordinator.” (Segment Above)

Watch Jason Whitlock of ‘Fearless’ explain why he believes Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy is quickly losing favor with Chiefs players, as Week 3 saw Bieniemy spotted having a heated exchange with Patrick Mahomes as the team walked off the field at halftime of their sloppy road loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

The Chiefs had the ball at their own 36-yard line with 20 seconds remaining in the first half. Facing a 2nd down and 20 with zero timeouts, the Chiefs elected to run the clock out on a simple run play instead of trying to get into field goal position in the final 20 seconds. Mahomes took exception, spurring the confrontation with Bieniemy.

Check out the segment above as Whitlock details why he thinks Bieniemy has become a ‘pinata’ for Chiefs players and a ‘fall guy’ for Andy Reid, as Whitlock believes Bieniemy is an inconsequential coach with hardly any role and says the players have no problem trading barbs with Bieniemy to avoid directly clashing with Reid.

Whitlock has had other strong takes about Bieniemy as well, as he explained last week the real reason why he believes the momentum of Bieniemy’s career has completely faded:

“The NBA, the NFL, all these live sports, all they are are TV shows. They’re no different from whatever your favorite TV show is right now. You know what they do on TV shows? They write people and characters in and out of the script. Eric Bieniemy, the alleged offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs, has been written out of the script. If you watched that Chiefs/Chargers game [in Week 1] Eric Bieniemy wasn’t discussed. Maybe I missed it, but if it was discussed it wasn’t discussed like it used to be. The whole Andy Reid and the Chiefs trying to promote Eric Bieniemy as the next great coaching legend, the heir to Tony Dungy’s throne, the heir to Vince Lombardi’s throne.. they weren’t talking about Eric Bieniemy. They weren’t flashing to the sidelines showing Eric Bieniemy pretending to call plays. Everything was about Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes, and Andy Reid calling plays and running that team. Eric Bieniemy has been de-emphasized because they’re done with him. They couldn’t pawn him off on another organization like they’ve tried the last three years so they’ve written him out of the script. All of that is controlled by the NFL teams. Andy Reid, Bill Belichick, whoever; they get to tell and greenlight whoever on their staff they want the television networks to talk about or focus in on. For the last 2-3 years the Chiefs were having a concerted effort to try and promote Eric Bieniemy up off their staff and get someone to take him on as a head coach. It’s a very clever way of firing people… The media has spent all of these years, ‘OH, ERIC BIENIEMY, HE DESERVES A HEAD COACHING JOB!’ ‘HE’S THE GREATEST HEAD COACH!’ ‘HE’S GETTING SCREWED OVER BECAUSE HE’S BLACK!’ ‘IF THE NFL WASN’T RACIST…’ They’ve been selling that nonsense forever meanwhile the Houston Texans hired Lovie Smith off the scrap heap? Hired Dave Culley, a 40-year NFL assistant? The NFL has no problem hiring Black head coaches. I don’t care what you hear on tv about how ‘racist’ they are, race isn’t the issue, CULTURE is the issue. You plug all of these men into this emasculated victimhood culture that has been pushed on Black people. You don’t produce leaders that way, and that’s why Black men are struggling to get NFL head coaching jobs. Because they’ve been forced into a culture that does not prepare them for leadership. THAT’S Eric Bieniemy’s problem. It’s connected to the conversation we’re going to have about ‘The Woman King.’ Black people are living in a matriarchal culture here in America. A matriarchal culture does not produce high-quality Black male leadership, period, end of story. Either we can deal with that fact and correct it, or we can whine and cry, and call everybody racist, and say ‘OH, IT’S THE WHITE MAN’S FAULT…’ It’s OUR fault for maintaining and buying into a matriarchal culture. If you continue to be on your knees and be a beta male and a coward, eventually you’re going to get written out of the script. That’s what happened to Eric Bieniemy. Life knocked on his door and said ‘Eric, we did the best we could, we tried to sell you for three years, we got all the media saying you’re the greatest coach in the world, then you get in these interview rooms and everyone finds out you’re not built for leadership, and they won’t give you the job.' They literally tried to get rid of him this off-season and ended up signing him to another one-year deal. Now they’re done. They’ve given him all the welfare they can give him, no one would buy the fake product, and now they've written him out of the script.”

Former Dallas Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar was identified as one of the two people who died while attempting to climb a rock face in Idyllwild in Riverside County, California.

Escobar, 31, and Chelsea Walsh, 33, were found at around 12:20 p.m. on Wednesday near Tahquitz Peak Fire Lookout near Humber Park, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department announced via CBS News.

The former NFL player had recently worked as a Long Beach firefighter, the department confirmed in a tweet shared on Thursday night.

"It is with deep sadness that we announce the off-duty death of Long Beach Firefighter Gavin Escobar," the department wrote. "Hired on February 5, 2022, Firefighter Escobar was assigned to Fire Station 3 on B-shift.

Escobar, a former two-time first-team All-MWC tight end at San Diego State, was selected by the Cowboys at No. 47 overall in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft, spending his first four NFL seasons with the franchise, having also appeared in two games for the Baltimore Ravens in 2017.

"Wow!!!! RIP Gavin Escobar," former Cowboys teammate Dez Bryant tweeted on Thursday night.

Myles Garrett Was Driving at 'Unsafe Speed' Prior to His Crash

Myles Garrett Was Driving at 'Unsafe Speed' Prior to His Crash

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was cited for "failure to control his motor vehicle" following a single-vehicle crash on Monday, according to an Ohio State Highway Patrol release obtained by ESPN on Thursday.

The department reported that Garrett was driving at 65 MPH in an area with a 45 MPH speed limit, which was deemed an "unsafe speed for the type of roadway" he was traveling on at the time of the accident.

On Tuesday, Browns Executive Vice President and General Manager Andrew Berry announced that Garrett suffered a "shoulder sprain, biceps strain, minor lacerations and bruises" during the crash.

Berry confirmed that Garrett "didn't suffer any fractures and has also cleared concussion protocol" after being evaluated by team doctors, but his status for the Browns' next game has not been determined.

"Currently, our focus is on providing Myles the medical care needed for him to return to football activity," Berry said. "Although we hope to have him back soon, his availability for Sunday's game in Atlanta will be evaluated by team doctors throughout the week."

Head coach Kevin Stefanski hadn't ruled Garrett out from Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons as of Thursday.

Garrett's agent, Nicole Lynn, issued a statement Monday night confirming the accident.

"Myles Garrett was involved in a one-car accident this afternoon and was transported to a local hospital to be medically evaluated," Lynn said. "While we are waiting to learn the extent of his injuries, he has been alert and responsive. The Garrett family would like to thank the medical personnel that got Myles and his passenger out of the vehicle and safely transported them to the hospital.

Garrett was reported to have received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries after his Porsche flipped during the accident prior to Lynn's confirmation, according to the Associated Press.

The Browns confirmed that Garrett was taken for emergency care but didn't provide specific details about his injuries or condition as of Monday evening, adding that they were gathering more information.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said it received a report of a rollover crash at around 3:00 p.m. on Monday. Responding troopers found a gray Porsche 911 Turbo S with rollover damage on the right side of the road upon arriving at the scene.

An unidentified female was also transported to a hospital, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol via the AP.

The crash is currently under investigation, but highway patrol officials said "impairment from alcohol/or drugs is not suspected" and added that Garrett and the female passenger were both wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.

The Browns returned to their Berea, Ohio practice facility on Monday for the first time since their win against the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers last Thursday (September 22).

Garrett was reportedly seen in the locker room following the team's morning workout on Monday.

The former Texas A&M standout was selected by the Browns at No. 1 overall in the 2017 Draft.

The Latest on Zach Wilson's Possible Return

The Latest on Zach Wilson's Possible Return

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has been medically cleared to play and could start in Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers pending any setbacks, head coach Robert Saleh told reporters on Wednesday.

Wilson was ruled out for the first three weeks of the 2022 NFL season due to a non-contact knee injury he experienced in a preseason game.

Veteran Joe Flacco has started in Wilson's absence, leading the Jets to a 1-2 record.

Wilson underwent a meniscus trim performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on August 12, NFL Network Senior Insider Ian Rapoport reported at the time.

"The recovery plan for #Jets QB Zach Wilson is complicated," Rapoport tweeted. "There is the bone bruise — which needs rest. And the meniscus, which was trimmed. Rests means off his feet. The team won’t put him on the field until he’s 100%, meaning it may not be Week 1. That said, overall good news."
