Aaron Judge is the biggest star in New York
Aaron Judge made a huge defensive play, and crushed a home run to help get the Yankees get back in the ALCS against the Astros, and Colin thinks that even though Judge has struggled at times during the playoffs, he’s showed he has what it takes to make it as a long term star in New York from an emotional and maturity standpoint.
On the flip side, Colin isn’t convinced that Odell Beckham has what it takes to make it over the long haul in the pressure packed Apple because he’s immature and always creating drama. Historically, high maintenance stars don’t last long in the Big Apple.
Physically, Judge is durably built like a superhero, and has the off field intangibles like Derek Jeter. He’s the biggest sports star in New York right now, not only because of his performance on the field, but because of what he’s showed off it.
Mobile NFL quarterbacks are more likely to get injured
Aaron Rodgers is likely out for the year alter breaking his collarbone while rolling out to avoid pressure against the Vikings. Rodgers is well known for his ability to improve outside of the structure of the offense, but this is the second broken collarbone in his career.
Today, Colin pointed out that mobile and improvising quarterbacks like Romo, Carr, Mariota, Cam and Rodgers have all been injured, while the quarterbacks at the top of the consecutive games played list are all pocket passers.
The NFL rules are designed to protect quarterbacks when they stay in the pocket, but mobile quarterbacks who have a habit of making plays on the run face a greater likelihood of eventually missing games. The best way for a quarterback to have a long NFL career is to play like Eli Brees or Tom Brady.
