If A QB’s Win/Loss Record Was Really Such A Great “Stat” Then Drew Brees Would Be Retired By Now

I’m happy and excited to have Alex Smith as a Redskin. But the front office should tread lightly when bragging about his key “stat” of a winning record these last five years. Has anybody checked their records lately?

The NFL’s new “Lowering Your Head” rule (it needs a more catchy moniker) is either going to radically change the pro game as we know it, or it’ll just be another quickly junked bad idea in sports.

Michael Bennett is facing some serious charges. But so far, the evidence looks pretty flimsy. In fact it’s looking like the Bennett/Security guard case in Houston is going to be very divisive, so buckle up. In a lot of ways, it looks to me like it might be the mirror-opposite of Bennett’s LVPD claims after he was arrested. I’ll detail my comparisons in today’s CzabeCast.

Tiger Woods’ comeback continues to be a thing of utter amazement, as he nearly got back into the winner’s circle Sunday at the Valspar – on a course he rarely plays on tour to boot! What I want to know, is why can’t he pull the trigger on a big driver when he’s essentially playing with “house money” at this point in his life/career? I elaborate today on the CzabeCast. Also I preview my upcoming battle royale with either Verizon/Apple over my iPhone, which is now compromised with a bad camera lens thanks to being under pool water for exactly 20 seconds at a depth of 1 foot – max! Water resistant my ass! I demand a new unit, and for them to stop advertising these phones with water splashes on them! Some quick stray thoughts on the NFL trades that just went down, and we’ve got Chris Knoche to talk tournament. All that plus the California bullet train project continues to burn cash like nothing else under the sun!

Tell me if you’ve heard this one before…. “let’s get a boycott of the NCAA Final Four going… that’ll show ’em!” I know I’ve heard it before. You spend 28 years hosting sports radio shows, you hear all kinds of things, and what Jay Williams of ESPN (along with Jalen Rose) is suggesting is nothing new. It’s also never going to happen, for a wide variety of reasons not even worth getting into detail about. That said, maybe if Jay wants to “cape up” on behalf of the poor, poor, student athletes, then he should spend a few minutes putting some scaffolding under such a rickety “take.”

Notorious J-A-Y closes our week, with a takedown of Fergie’s anthem at the All-Star game, and another swipe at Kevin Hart and Rob Riggle – two not-that-funny guys who keep getting gigs from TV execs who probably think they are George Carlin and Eddie Murphy in their primes. Jay also weighs in on the Bill Polian/Ryan Clark QB debate regarding Lamar Jackson.

Boy, does Johnny Manziel have a deal for you! How about you, sign him, to a practice squad contract…. and he’ll play for NO MONEY DOWN! Huh? Bargain, AMIRITE? While I admire Johnny’s frantic desire to get back into the league, it doesn’t make it any less desperate than his bookend washout RG3. Griffin had more short-term success than Manziel, and was not an alcoholic idiot, but RG3 was douchey in his own ways, as well as immature in certain respects. Good luck indeed, Johnny. But second chances are not guaranteed in life, or sports. You’ll have to accept the fact that… you blew it.

Meanwhile in today’s CzabeCast, I try to get Andy Pollin to drop his terrible Gold’s Gym membership and join a real workout palace somewhere in Rockville. At least one where they open the doors on time. We also remember a time in which business cards didn’t have EMAIL addresses on them! God, we are old.

Lamar Jackson looks like he’ll be the most interesting, polarizing, and hot-take generating player in this year’s NFL Draft. He’s already generated a kerfuffle over a Bill Polian suggestion that he should transition to wide receiver. Also, Jackson says he’s going to have his mom – yep, his mom! – serve as his “agent” during the draft process. Ooooohhhh-kay. I get that it’ll save some money – since rookie salaries are so tightly slotted according to a pre-determined scale – but I would think a good agent can help manage media and team perceptions of him as a QB. Also in today’s ‘cast, Bob and Brian join me, as we discuss the time we had a cabbie in Vegas last year who was like the Vince Lombardi for hookers. Trust me, it’ll make sense when you hear it!

I’m back and finally rested from our Mervis Diamonds/Team 980 week long adventure to South Africa. It was amazing, as expected, and then some. In today’s CzabeCast, I will tell you why I will never get over NOT being able to say that I was the one who took the above photograph! That belonged to listener David Black, who was not just a great photog, but a great guy with a handsome family! Still, damn him for outdoing me on this one! WOW! Look at that thing!

Drew Olsen joins me today, and we talk Kirk Cousins to Vikings, NCAA scandal, Catch Rule Re-Write, and Heather Locklear’s arrest for extreme crazy. All that plus FTG, and calling things what they are, even if it sounds a little bit judgemental.

All that and more, is yours on today’s CzabeCast! Download and enjoy at your leisure!
