Jerry Jones has always been known as a “player’s owner” since taking over the Cowboys. His door is always open for his players for anything, and he is always there for his guys, present, past, or retired. Jones recently made a comment that he wanted to do whatever he can to make Tony Romo feel like a part of the team’s potential championship run, presumably by playing him at some point.
Colin thinks Jones shouldn’t be making any decisions based on Romo’s feelings, or their friendship, he should only be concerned with making moves in the interest of winning football games and the Super Bowl. Jerry didn’t get to where he is because he’s great at being a friend, he got there by being a good businessman. He should stick to what he does best, business.
“Tony had his run. Tony got hurt. Dak came in. Dak is great. Get back to football, and get back to business, because that’s what Jerry Jones is unbelievable at.”
Colin has been vocal of his distrust of the media. They hyperbolize everything for ratings and clicks whether it’s the presidential election or sports. They’re more interested in building a narrative than honestly assessing the situation. A perfect example of this is the narrative that Thursday Night Football games are unwatchable, terrible football.
It’s a nice soundbite, unfortunately, it’s not true. The reality, based on statistics, is that quarterbacks have a higher completion percentage and passer rating in Thursday night games, there are fewer penalties, and typically they’re divisional games, which are more interesting. These are all key components to what most consider “a good watch.” This week the Raiders are playing the Chiefs in a game that could decide the AFC West, and have implications for home-field advantage in the playoffs. Colin can’t wait to watch it with some nachos.
“We are overly criticizing, from Y2k, Rio Olympics. Over-dramatizing. This Thursday night game is gonna be a really good football game. It’s gonna have playoff implications, and you’re gonna have two really good quarterbacks.”
The Red Sox traded for White Sox ace Chris Sale. Yankees GM Brian Cashman lamented that the Red Sox overloaded starting rotation with Sale makes them the Golden State Warriors of baseball. While Cashman isn’t thrilled about the trade, Colin couldn’t be happier.
Sale is one of the top starters in the AL, and it’s a win for baseball that he’s heading to the Red Sox and Boston’s major media market. Colin has always said that the biggest sports brands should have the biggest stars, and that’s exactly what this move does. The Red Sox gave up top prospects to make the trade, but prospects rarely pan out, and Colin is always in favor of unloading prospects to get stars in their prime, especially dominant starting pitchers like Sale.
“This is a big win for the Red Sox. Don’t worry about minor league prospects. You have the best pitching staff in baseball.”
