  1. The highest paid player in the history of the NFL. Seriously.
  2. Romo was the face of the team and a second son (or maybe third, I don't know) to Jerry Jones. Much different front office dynamics. Put it another way: if the Cowboys had it to do over again, do you think they would move up for Wentz or keep things the way they played out?
  3. At the time, the Cowboys had Romo and his $21 million dollar contract on the books so there was no way they were going to trade up for Goff or Wentz.
  4. The NFL schedule is meant to ensure one thing: big TV ratings. The schedule is created with that in mind. Everything else is secondary.
  5. That's sort of what the piece says. For example, most teams change everything when they change coordinators - scheme, language, etc. but the Patriots keep their play books the same and expect the coordinator to adjust to the system. Continuity.

  7. Not sure of the exact timing, but the Patriots might have been covering their bases in the event that Josh McDaniels took one of the head coaching jobs. He later announced he is staying in Foxborough.
  8. Whatever they're doing up there works.
  9. Good article on SI.com by former Patriots beat writer Greg Bedard.My favorite: it's about the right 53, not necessarily the best. http://www.si.com/nfl/2017/01/12/bill-belichick-philosophy-nfl-coaches-blanket-coverage?
  10. I'm not so sure about that. The Jets gig went horribly wrong, and now Buffalo.
  11. One more bad showing and the fans will riot in the streets, chanting Romo's name.
  12. And among those teammates he's carrying around are the most electrifying running back we've seen in years, a dominating stud #1 WR and the best OL in football. That matters.
  13. Going to be in Coronado soon -any recommendations on a spot to watch a 10am kickoff?
  14. This was one of the strangest chapters in the Chip Kelly book. He had the best lateral slash-and-cut runner in the league in Shady and dumped him for a box of nothing. He then signs Murray, who is a hit-the-hole guy, and makes him run side to side. Hard to fathom.
  15. Local but first full NFL season in Manhattan. Been to Turtle Bay which is Eagles crazy. Very young - college age - crowd pounding beers and wings. Lots of fun but I'm a little out of the demographic.
