“Why Do That?”
Miami…So they sign Jay Cutler to a 1-year contract worth 13M. When last seen, he was quarterbacking Chicago into another losing season. He was such a hot commodity on the free agent market, he didn’t get one offer. And now Miami, losing starter Ryan Tannehill to knee surgery, chooses him over you-know-who?
San Francisco…Colin Kaeperneck remains unemployed. Is it because he is toxic or talent-less. In an NFL that hires women abusers, past drug users, and guys suspeneded for domestic abuse and DUIs, the ex-49ers quarterback is being penalize for speaking his mind, as unpopular as his public stance might be. Can you say blackballed despite the lst Amendment.
Washington…Robert Griffin III is still unemployed, but this probably has more to do with his dropoff in talent post knee and shoulder injuries. That and the fact he has yet to prove he can be a quality pocket passing quarterback.
Waiting and Watching…how fast DeShone Kiser gets on the field in Cleveland as quarterback, after impressive OTA’s and work last week in camp.
Wating and Watching #2…Houston says Tom Savage starts at QB-but to hear coach Bill O’Brien say it, Clemson rookie Deshaun Watson is the most impressive rookie QB he has ever seen.
Waiting and Watching #3…It might be awhile, like maybe a whole year plus before Mitch Trubisky gets to play for the Bears and Patrick Mahomes goes at Kansas City. Their work in mini-camps and now thru week one of preseason has been real shaky…interceptions..bad throws…timing..
Keeping score of mistakes….You’d fill a notebook with the problems surrounding the operation of the Rams. Yes they have Jared Goff and Todd Gurley, but that’s about all. The offensive line is in constant shuffle. They dumped lst round draft pick Greg Robinson, a two year failure. They are letting CB-Trumaine Johnson walk after this year as a franchise-tagged free agent. They let their other top corner Janoris Jenkins go a year ago to free agency. They have the Aaron Donald holdout-grossly underpaying the highly productive defensive tackle. They have 14-wide receivers in camp but no deep threats. Can you say football driven dysfunction? GM-Les Snead goes to the front of the line on GM-Death Watch, and we haven’t even started the season.
Where is Johnny Football….Johnny Manziel isn’t going to any NFL camp…but it is a mystery why he has not sales pitched himself to go to the CFL, where the Hamilton Ti-Cats, who own his rights, haven’t met with him. You know those TiCats if you follow the CFL. They are (0-6) and were beaten a week ago by the Calgary Stampeders (60-1)…yes (60-1) in a game.
