Colin is entering the 2-step Dallas Cowboys recovery program. The first step is admitting that he was wrong on the Cowboys. These aren’t the old self-sabotaging Dallas Cowboys. When no one was paying attention, the Cowboys organization transformed from a dysfunctional mess, to a well-run organization, built on a punishing offensive line and consistent, dependable play. The second step is joining the bandwagon. Colin is all-in on Dallas as a Super Bowl contender.
“This is a new Cowboy team, they’re grown up, they’re adult, they’re respectable, they reliable.”
It’s Presidential election eve, and Colin is getting political. He’s officially coming out against the fade pattern with Proposition F. Vote no on the fade pattern. NFL teams won’t stop using it and it’s driving Colin nuts.
Derek Carr led the Raiders to a win over division rival Denver, and is being talked about nationally as an MVP candidate. Colin has been on this for weeks, and can’t stop praising, not only Carr’s skills, but his off the charts intangibles.
“He’s the next great NFL quarterback. And it’s not arm, and it’s not feet.”
The Steelers finished up their loss to the Ravens with a botched, trick onside kick. Colin thinks it speaks to the larger problem that the Steelers aren’t buttoned up as an organization. It starts with Mike Tomlin. Well coached teams are consistent. The Steelers, with Big Ben, should at least be making the playoffs every year. Something isn’t right.
The story of the year in college football is Penn State. They’re going to finish 10-2 and have a chance to be back among the top programs in the conference. What happened with Jerry Sandusky is sickening, but at this point, holding a grudge only punishes kids and coaches that have nothing to do with it. Colin is in favor of healing and moving forward.
“I root for healing. As I’ve said many times, holding a grudge is chain-smoking hate. “
