Final day broadcasting from Super Bowl LI in Houston:
Charles Barkley went on Inside the NBA last night, and gave his first national response to LeBron James’ biting personal comments which he let loose after Sir Charles called James ‘whiny’ for his public complaints about the Cavs roster and front office.
Barkley said the personal attacks don’t bother him, and that his criticism was based solely on what he sees on the court. He clearly stated that he wasn’t backing down from his criticism of James. Colin is a noted admirer of LeBron, but in this case, he has Sir Charles’ back.
“LeBron went personal. Don’t go personal. I’ve got Charles Barkley’s back on this.”
It looks almost certain that Tony Romo will be playing elsewhere next year. Reports indicate that Romo has narrowed his wish list of potential destinations to the Texans, Chiefs, Broncos and Cardinals. The common thread that runs through each of these teams is they all have top-tier defenses. Colin says it’s no coincidence they are on Romo’s shortlist.
If Romo plays one or two more years, his best shot to win a Super Bowl is to sign with a team with a solid defense. Romo has been forced carry subpar defense through most of his career. If he’s given a good defense and can manage to stay healthy, he could win right away.
“You’re only as good as your defense.”
The Baylor mess somehow managed to get even uglier after text messages from Art Briles were publicly released showing Briles attempted to cover up crimes involving his players. Briles has attempted to rehabilitate his image, but has not been seriously considered for any vacant head coach openings.
Colin thought Briles coaching prospects were a longshot before this, but these text messages should provide the final nail in the coffin for his head coaching career. Briles is done.
“There’s a reason Art Briles is on the market and no one is hiring him.”
Colin also makes his Super Bowl prediction.
