the los angeles rams unveil their new uniforms
After revealing a new logo a few months ago, the Los Angeles Rams unveiled their new uniforms earlier this week. They have gradient numbers and a metallic helmet.
These hurt my eyes. The helmet isn't that bad, but the uniforms look like a children's clothing line. I really do not get it. But these are the things we get mad at in April-May.
jalen hurts will wear no. 2 for eagles
The 2020 second-round pick Jalen Hurts will wear No. 2 for the Philadelphia Eagles this season, according to the list the team released on Thursday.
[Insert joke about how he's the number 2 quarterback until only Carson Wentz gets hurt again.]
New York Giants CB Deandre Baker and Seattle Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar currently have warrants out for their arrest, clearly rounding out the NFL offseason nicely. The two are being charged for armed robbery with a firearm while attending a cookout and robbing other guests. The incident occurred on May 13.
Not only are you dumb as rocks to rob a cookout during a global pandemic, you are doubly dumb to rob someone as a millionaire yourself, and to turn a contract year into jail time. Idiotic. And peak offseason.
tom brady responds to reports of rift with josh mcdaniels
Rumors were floating around that former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels had some trouble in paradise, citing that as a potential reason why Brady scooted down to Florida. Brady quickly squashed the rumor, explaining that him and McDaniels were "brothers for life."
Any possible way to talk about Brady, we'll be sure to do it, right?
prince amukamara signs with raiders
Cornerback Prince Amukamara was with the Chicago Bears a long time -- now he's moving on to the Las Vegas Raiders. The two agreed to a deal on Tuesday.
Love this move. This is a case of an underrated corner who gives the team insurance if the younger guys aren't ready to start.
Booger McFarland is out at monday night football
Announcers are SUCH a big deal to everyone it seems. PRO TIP: Learn to tune them out like me, and you won't even notice.
Anyway, it was announced over the weekend that Booger McFarland and Joe Tessitore will not be returning to the Monday Night Football booth this coming season. This is my favorite Booger moment.
Richard SEYMOUR makes the Patriots Hall of Fame
Richard Seymour became the 30th member of the New England Patriots Hall of Fame on Monday.
Seymour is the seventh player to enter the Hall as a third-time Super Bowl champion.
could carlos hyde be going to philly?
After spending last season with the Houston Texans, running back Carlos Hyde is a free agent, looking for a new home. Could that home be with the Philadelphia Eagles?
titans ceo steve underwood is retiring
Steve Underwood, the Tennessee Titans CEO and President, announced his retirement on Friday. But that's not why he made headlines this weekend. This is why:
I know y'all see that.
saints release larry warford
The New Orleans Saints released guard Larry Warford on Friday, making him a free agent. The move saved the Saints over $7 million against the salary cap.
They say that you can tell how good an offensive lineman is by how little you hear their name being called, and this is true here. Warford should be one of the top free agents currently available, and I'd imagine he'll get snatched up quick.
But first... we can't talk about that, until we talk about this:
Earl Thomas' own personal lifetime movie
Baltimore Ravens safety Earl Thomas isn't having a good time lately. First he gets man-handled by Derrick Henry, and now he gets HELD UP AT GUN POINT BY HIS WIFE FOR CHEATING.
To paraphrase -- Thomas' wife, Nina, tracked his Snapchat location (who even has Snapchat anymore - and if you're gonna cheat, turn it off), and found him and his brother in bed in an Airbnb with other women. She then held him at gunpoint and threatened him and was later arrested. You can read the whole story here, and I highly highly recommend doing that.
Before you speculate about the Ravens or the NFL punishing him in any way, Thomas really didn't do anything wrong here except cheat. And you can't get suspended or anything for that. The only thing he did wrong was not notify the team after this happened (April 13 -- the team found out about it when everyone else did). That could be handled internally. Unless there's something we really don't know about, Thomas should not face any disciplinary action.
the 2020 season will open with texans @ chiefs
We hope so, anyway. The 2020 NFL season will kick off on Thursday, September 10, with the Houston Texans playing the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs.
Now, can we please stay home and not make bad decisions so we can watch this please? It's all I ask, and I don't ask for much.
brady vs. brees in week one hits different
Another high-profile matchup for Week One -- the Tampa Bay Bucs take on the New Orleans Saints. Which means, we get Tom Brady vs. Drew Brees. AND they're in the same division, which means we get this twice.
Brady and Brees have only met five times prior to this season.
