Jason Whitlock Says 'Glass Joe' Tua Tagovailoa Needs to Retire From the NFL

Jason Whitlock Says 'Glass Joe' Tua Tagovailoa Needs to Retire From the NFL

Jason Whitlock: “Should Tua Tagovailoa play professional football? His injury history suggests that the talented left-hander doesn’t have the physical makeup to survive in the NFL. While starting at Alabama Tua suffered broken fingers, knee and ankle sprains, and a devastating hip injury. Since joining the NFL the 24-year-old Dolphins quarterback broke a thumb, a finger, endured a rib fracture, and in his last two games he’s been removed twice; the last time on a stretcher… Three days after doctors carted Tua Tagovailoa off the field, NFL teams benched at least a dozen players because of the concussion protocols. Yahoo Sports called it the ‘Tua Effect.’ The ‘Blue checkmarks’ call it PROGRESS. I call it what it is – stupidity. You don’t change football because Tua Tagovailoa is ‘Glass Joe.’ You guys remember Glass Joe from the Nintendo ‘Punch-out’ game? He was a 38-year-old French flyweight with a record of 1 win and 99 losses. He was the ultimate beta male and fashionista. He was the first opponent a gamer would face on his way to the title. I’m not calling Tua a ‘beta’, he’s not, Tua has a heart for the game of football, he’s just not built for it. He’s small and brittle. He can’t take a punch. Tua Tagovailoa needs to retire. Football doesn’t need to be further softened because Tua’s genetics make him a bad fit for the NFL… The media botched the reaction to Tua’s injury. We spent the weekend blaming the Dolphins and the NFL for Tua’s genetic shortcomings. There is no proof that what happened to Tua on Thursday was connected to what happened to him four days earlier, NONE. That’s pure speculation. What we know is Tua gets hurt a lot playing football. We know he’s not an ideal size for his position and he doesn’t appear particularly strong. Lamar Jackson takes more hits, he doesn’t miss games. Nothing perverts logic and nuanced conversation quite like social media. It empowers emotional thinkers and baits logical people to abandon reason. It demands that we vilify certain people based on their race, wealth, authority, and gender, and certain industries based on their relationship to masculinity and popularity. Football is the bad guy. We can watch boxers and UFC fighters get concussed in the ring or Octagon and applaud loudly when they shake it off and continue to fight. Over the weekend I watched Larry Holmes’ 1978 fight against Ernie Shavers. Shavers rocked Holmes with a right hand in the 11th round. Holmes collapsed to the canvas, got on his feet, stumbled around the ring for the rest of the round, and survived to win the fight. My takeaway was that Holmes was a much greater champion than he’s given credit. I didn’t re-watch the fight and think ‘BOXING NEEDS TO CHANGE! THEY NEED A CONCUSSION PROTOCOL!’ Why are we more concerned about the health of football players than fighters? On social media, it's because ‘concern’ is attached to ‘agenda’, not humanity.” (Full Video Above)

Watch Jason Whitlock of ‘Fearless’ explain why he thinks Tua Tagovailoa needs to retire from the NFL, as Whitlock compares the concussed Dolphins quarterback to ‘Glass Joe’, the flimsy tomato can boxing character from Nintendo’s notorious 1984 arcade game ‘Punch-Out!!’”

Check out the segment above as Whitlock details why he doesn’t think the sport of football should be getting attacked and ultimately 'softened' just because Tua’s 'small and feeble genetics’ have led to such mentally jarring injuries the last two weeks.

Colin Cowherd: Cowboys Are Nearing QB Controversy with Cooper Rush, Dak

Colin Cowherd: Cowboys Are Nearing QB Controversy with Cooper Rush, Dak

Colin Cowherd: “You know you have a star quarterback when you take the star quarterback and his backup and the gap is the Grand Canyon. Like Josh Allen’s backup is Case Keenum -- physically they don’t even look close. Lamar Jackson’s backup is Tyler Huntley, Justin Herbert’s is Chase Daniel, and Patrick Mahomes’ is Chad Henne. You literally have to change the offense when the backup quarterback comes in. That’s when you know you have a STAR quarterback. When you watch the Cowboys, Dak leaves and Cooper Rush comes in and it’s the same offense. I think Dak is better than Cooper Rush but it’s not quite as wide a gap as you want considering at one point Dak was the highest-paid quarterback in the league. When was the last time you watched a Cowboys game and went ‘WOW’ with Dak? You’re not going to watch Cooper Rush and go ‘WOW’, but you’re not going to with Dak either. This weekend I saw Josh Allen, Herbert, Mahomes, and Brady and I was like ‘WHOA!’ You can run the exact same offensive with Cooper Rush that you can run with Dak. If Case Keenum came in for Josh Allen, you think Case Keenum is running around 11 times a game? NO. You think the Chargers are going to be running as many deep routes with Chase Daniel? With Cooper and Dak it’s the same offense. Cooper Rush is a very capable backup, and the Cowboys have the exact same offense. That’s why you don’t pay a quarterback $40 million. I don’t mind paying big money but you gotta give me some ‘WOW’, and I gotta see it. Dak now comes back at the Rams, and at Philly. They’re not winning those games. I don’t think we should have a quarterback controversy but if Dak goes 0-2 we’re going to have a quarterback controversy.” (Full Segment Above)

Watch Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks there is definitely going to be a quarterback controversy in Dallas if Dak Prescott returns next week like he’s expected and starts a losing streak against the Rams and Eagles in back-to-back difficult matchups.

Check out the segment above as Colin details why he thinks the offense is exactly the same under Cooper Rush as it is with Dak, which is quite the indictment for a starting quarterback making over $40 million a year.

'Denver Whiffed on the Coach': Colin Cowherd Rips Broncos After 2-2 Start

'Denver Whiffed on the Coach': Colin Cowherd Rips Broncos After 2-2 Start

Colin Cowherd: “Folks, you’re seeing it with Oklahoma football and you’re seeing it with the Denver Broncos, where a coach comes in and can’t even master his side of the ball. Seventy-five percent of coordinators hired for college or pro jobs do not work. ‘WELL, WAIT UNTIL HE GETS HIS PLAYERS!’ Nonsense, McVay didn’t need 'his; players, and Lincoln Riley at USC didn’t need 'his' players. Denver, from clock management, to penalties, to lack of creativity… Denver really whiffed on the head coach. They’ve literally got no identity offensively other than ‘disorganized.’ Twelve first downs, no ability to run the ball, they don’t move the pocket… You can blame Russell Wilson but his passer rating was 124.9. You still saw flashes of Russell Wilson; he led Denver in rushing, he had two great deep balls, he’s getting the ball to his star receivers, he’s scrambling for first downs; you don’t see a guy who is hobbling up and down the field. He’s at least trending in the right direction. We have seen this in the NFL the last 4-5 years – Steve Wilks in Arizona, they moved off after a year. Ben McAdoo and the New York Giants, they got it wrong. Joe Judge took them longer, they got it wrong. Cleveland Browns and Freddie Kitchens, it happens. What is Nathaniel Hackett’s identity? You don’t know if Robert Saleh is going to work for the Jets but he has an identity; great energy and a tough guy. Saleh's physical and his energy is through the roof. I could watch Rams players playing in a silhouette and know it was Sean McVay’s offense. Same with Kyle Shanahan, same with Andy Reid, same with Sean Payton. I can see it and know it’s clever, the manipulation of personnel, formations, and variations. What is THIS? Even Dan Campbell who can be a little bit of a meathead – unbelievable passion, pro player, and would run through a wall for the organization. Whether it works out, that Lions team never quits. When a coordinator comes in you have to be able to get YOUR side of the ball right. I feel pretty good with my predictions but I picked Denver to win the division. I gotta be honest, that was not a great prediction by me. If I had to do it again I would pick them fourth. I don’t think you can win with what I see here. You gotta have an identity.” (Full Segment Above)

Watch Colin Cowherd explain why he’s already selling his Denver Broncos stock as Colin says he deeply regrets his pre-season prediction of the Broncos winning the AFC West division.

Check out the segment above as Colin details why he thinks the Broncos got it wrong with rookie head coach Nathaniel Hackett, and how they might already be looking for an exit strategy.

Colin Cowherd Says Packers Aren't a Top 10 Team Despite 3-1 Start

Colin Cowherd: “The good news for the Packers is that they know their problems. Self-awareness is very, very important and I think Aaron Rodgers knows the problem. Green Bay has become one of those teams who only has one way to win. The box score looks beautiful: 24 first downs, 450 yards, dominant time of possession, very few penalties – we think they’re smart, but with Aaron, Matt LaFleur, and the best running back corps in a bad division, they’re 22nd in scoring in the league, and this is why I don’t put them in my top 10. They’ve beaten a bad Bears team, Tampa with none of its receivers, and a third-string quarterback who took them to overtime. As long as Aaron is the quarterback and playing with rookie receivers his personality is: ‘you make a mistake, I’ll punish you.’ You saw it, Romeo Doubs fumbled early and Aaron ghosted him for two quarters. LaFleur had to go back to reverses to get him the ball. There’s a lot of GREAT with Aaron but when Allen Lazard is you’re no. 1, he can’t be stubborn. They’ve become like the Titans, Ravens, and 49ers with Garoppolo; they can only beat you one way, and Aaron knows it. If Mac Jones were to play Green Bay doesn’t win that game. If Evans, Godwin, and Julio Jones play for Tampa you think Green Bay beats Tampa? Absolutely no way. Green Bay is too one-dimensional; they just have one of the great quarterbacks of our lives.” (Full Video Above)

Watch Colin Cowherd explain why he doesn’t think the Green Bay Packers are one of the ten best teams in the NFL despite the Packers winning three of their first four games.

Check out the segment above as Colin details why the Packers are too one-dimensional to be considered a player in the NFC right now, adding that they would have lost to the Bucs if Tampa’s star receivers would have played, and to the Patriots if Mac Jones was healthy.

Colin Cowherd: “I don’t do conspiracy theories, I don’t believe in them. I’ve always had a theory about conspiracy theories – it’s less successful people who feel like society doesn’t pay enough attention to them so I’m going to come up with 'inside information' that nobody else has! I don’t buy them… BUT if you were a rich head coach with a $100 million net worth, the greatest coach ever, had your legacy, rings, and money, AND you really didn’t like the owner who in multiple books called you out and said you’re ‘impossible’ and ‘difficult’, and leaks that Belichick is ‘not a good guy’, and you thought ‘I’ve got my rings, I’ve got my house in Jupiter, Florida…’ IF I was into conspiracy theories there would be seven ways to leave on your terms and hand the owner a mess:

1. Tick off the greatest quarterback ever until he leaves.

2. Hire your kids on the staff.

3. Draft a very limited quarterback.

4. Spend a ton in free agency on players who don’t make a difference.

5. Re-hire guys who were disasters as head coaches on your staff [Joe Judge, Matt Patricia], so you have no heir apparent when you leave, and there’s nobody in the building that can be it, then assign them to roles they're not comfortable with.

6. Overdraft your first-round pick [Cole Strange].

7. Ruin the culture by letting players constantly leak stuff and don’t call them out.

Then at the end of the year retire and Robert Kraft goes ‘whaaaat do I do now?? I don’t have the speed! I don’t have the roster! I don’t have the quarterback! I don’t have the coaches in the building! I don’t have the culture!’ I don’t believe in conspiracy theories and I’m not saying this is true but it’s almost as if Belichick has already made his mind up and wants out. It’s the slowest roster, leaks everywhere, kids on the staff, re-hiring guys that bombed that you could never give the job to and giving them roles they’ll fail at, reaching on picks, spending on players who don’t make a difference… Wasn’t Belichick always a genius on in-league personnel? He spent $234 million on a bunch of guys who can’t run. Just saying, if I believed in conspiracy theories… Just to make it not so suspicious you have to occasionally win some games.” (Full Segment Above)

Watch Colin Cowherd float a conspiracy theory about how Bill Belichick is currently ‘sabotaging’ the Patriots organization to spite Robert Kraft, as Colin entertains the idea of Belichick pulling a fast one on the franchise before he retires.

Check out the segment above as Colin admits he’s not a big believer in conspiracy theories but presents these seven reasons why it ‘could’ be plausible.
