Dak Prescott has been struggling over his last 3 starts, and if he puts up another stinker next game, the calls for Tony Romo will only continue to grow louder. Colin says the problems Prescott is having are the same problems that every quarterback experiences once NFL coaches have film on them, and figure out what they can and can’t do.
Colin still thinks Prescott is a franchise quarterback, and the Cowboys should stick with him, but people just need to slow down a little. Everybody is always quick to rush to the newest thing, but new things have flaws, too. If both quarterbacks are healthy, Tony Romo is the better of the two quarterbacks right now.
“Tony Romo is a better quarterback than Dak Prescott.”
Wake Forest radio announcer Tommy Elrod was fired after a school investigation concluded that he conspired to provide specific game plan information, including diagrammed plays, to opponents in order to sandbag his current employer. The sanctimonious media is in pile-on mode over the situation, and Colin can’t stand it.
He doesn’t approve of what Elrod did, but says leaks from former disgruntled employees have been commonplace in the media forever. The sports blog industry was practically built on it. Colin thinks it must not have been that bad, because Wake is 6-6, and headed for the Military Bowl against Temple. Everybody, take a deep breath.
“Media, take a deep breath. What happened at Wake Forest you’ve been a part of for 30 years.”
The Lakers have offered glimmers of hope under new head coach Luke Walton. It’s true, the Lakers look a lot better this year than last, but Colin is here to tell Laker fans to pump the breaks on thinking they’re close. They’re not. In the NBA, it’s hard to find star players, and while L.A. has some nice pieces, they don’t have any clear cut future star.
It’s also really hard to win anything significant with a roster full of young talent. The Minnesota Timberwolves have better young talent on their roster, they’re 7-18, and light years away from contending in the West. Laker nation should be happy with the improvement they’ve made, but don’t get confused, they’re not winning a title any time soon.
“The Lakers are four years away from being a player.”
