You can tell a lot by body language, and when Colin watched Tony Romo’s press conference where he endorsed Dak Prescott as the Cowboys’ starter, he saw a glimpse into what Tony Romo’s behind the scenes discussions were like with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Colin says that it was clear that Romo was speaking like a guy that was told he’s done in Dallas. This is Dak Prescott’s team now.
“What you saw yesterday, barring an injury, was the end of Tony Romo in Dallas. It’s the end.”
If Tony Romo is done in Dallas, he’s going to have options in deciding where he wants to play next. Colin thinks the best fit for him going forward is a franchise with good ownership, a playoff roster, a strong offensive line, and a respected head coach. That franchise is the Arizona Cardinals.
James Harden and Russell Westbrook take center stage tonight when the Rockets and the Thunder face off. Colin is calling it “Slobberfest 2016”, because NBA beat writers and stat junkies that value flash and sizzle over winning basketball will be drooling all over their keyboards over the matchup. Colin values players that contribute to winning NBA titles more than players like Westbrook and Harden that value their own stat lines.
“Westbrook and Harden are championship deterrents, not championship ingredients. Sort of a difference.”
The College Football Playoff committee released its most recent playoff rankings and Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and Clemson make up the Top 4. Colin says that some schools like Alabama and Ohio State just have better players, and if it’s a close call between two schools, Colin is always going to give those schools the benefit of the doubt. Stop being paralyzed by obsessively comparing records.
“Any time I have to vote in a college football poll, and the records are all tied, or it’s close, I’ll always give the Michigan the advantage over the Louisville. I’ll give Clemson the advantage over Washington. Because they have more NFL bodies.”
Ray Lewis – 2-time Super Bowl champ is in-studio to talking Romo’s press conference in Dallas, why he was disappointed in the way he handled it, why Dak Prescott is the NFL MVP right now, and why he thinks Phil Jackson would never refer to a white player’s friends as a “posse”.
