J.J. Watt is done for the year and headed for a second back surgery. If he’s done, Colin thinks he’s a Hall of Famer, even though he’s only played for 5 years.
“Yes. There have been times when I have said, J.J. Watt, I would not spend the big money on defensive players. But, if he’s on a Hall of Fame ballot, like Sandy Koufax, absolutely. Great is great.”
Stranger Football Things. Strange NFL predictions that could come true. Could Lane Kiffin end up in New England with Belichick?
Tony Romo is done in Dallas. Jerry Jones is a business guy before he’s a football guy and he’s emotionally moved on from Romo. Dak Prescott is the future for Cowboys, even if he won’t ever be a better quarterback.
The UFC continues to do smart things to promote their sport. They have their first New York event at Madison Square Garden, of course they have Conor McGregor on the card. It’s not poorly run boxing.
