On yesterday’s show, Colin disagreed with Steelers’ running back Le’Veon Bell’s assertion that he was the Steph Curry of the NFL for how he was changing the game. Bell went on Twitter to take a shot at Colin for disrespecting him, but he must have not understood the point. Colin thinks Bell is an incredible back, maybe the best in the NFL, but the bottom line is that no top NFL star has the marketing pull or influence that top NBA players.
The NBA is a star league, the NFL is about the league, the shield and the teams before the individual. It’s not a knock on Le’Veon Bell, it’s just reality.
“Le’Veon Bell is a tremendous talent, and I love his patient running style, but he’s not Steph Curry. Tom Brady’s not even Steph Curry when it comes to marketability.”
Colin thinks you can judge a person’s character by how they act in crisis. Last night, the San Diego Chargers announced they are moving to Los Angeles after failing to reach an agreement with the city on a new stadium deal. Colin understands a team making a move for business decisions, but he thinks their releasing of a new L.A. Chargers logo less than 24 hours after announcing the move is a classless move that fits the narrative of the Chargers as a second-class organization.
San Diego and the fans deserved better than getting kicked in the teeth for good measure as their team is packing up the moving vans.
“Having a new logo? The ink’s barely dry on the divorce papers and you’re out with another girl. Brutal. Outrageous. Sickening. Disrespectful. The City of San Diego deserves more.”
Of all the playoff games this weekend, Colin thinks that one quarterback has more on the line than any of the rest. For most of the quarterbacks, Colin doesn’t think a win or loss won’t change the overall perception or career trajectory, except for Dak Prescott.
Colin genuinely believes that a playoff win against the Packers will cement his spot as a star quarterback and not just a sensation. A loss, especially if he plays poorly, will only create an offseason of speculation amongst fans and media if Prescott is a top-tier quarterback.
“if Dak wins, the legend is born.”
