    Is it true Washington picked up Mark Sanchez?! They've given up on the season?

    He is their starting QB now. They signed, as a backup, Josh Johnson. Richard Sherman has an interesting opinion about that signing.

    He played in Monday night's game after Colt McCoy went out with an injury. Twitter had a ton of "Is it 2009?" jokes since Mark handed off the ball to AP for a TD.

    Josh Johnson? WOW! I mean, Josh Freeman or EJ Manuel feel like more defensible pickups. Josh Johnson? Was he ever anything other than really a team's 2nd backup and a long term project? I'm completely confused at this point because I thought teams were trying to prove they were not colluding against Kap when I see every one one of these moves as definitive proof that they most certainly did and still are.

    As someone who lives within cycling distance from Nissan Stadium, I'm finding the pre-, during- and post-game writeups of Jaguars vs. Titans inordinately entertaining, including this fantasy tip:

    It's being called "the lateral heard round the world"

    So far, what a week. Henry's performance and this lateral. And the game was pretty good, BTW.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    My favorite part is Gronk stumbling at the end and missing the tackle. Although if you go back and watch it, there's at least another couple players who are just hanging back and not even attempting to get close enough for a tackle. Belichick is gonna roast a couple of them this week me thinks.
    Thanks for the medal Johanna!

    Re: The NFL Thread

    I have been reading a bit about the lateral and some of these experts are simply being dumb. That play will work once in one hundred times. Yesterday it did. Now some of these experts (the same guys that gave Pittsburgh a -15 spread for yesterday's game) are coming up with "oh, Gronk should have never been on the field" or "oh, the Pats players were not moving". Again, that was as flukey and as out of nowhere as Henry's game on Thursday, Chris Boswell slipping on a make-able FG attempt (and the subsequent Steelers defeat) or any other of these odd things.
    I really dislike the Pats. But yesterday was simply a fluke (although super fun) play. Glad it happened to New England, but no need to crucify them.

    The Dallas game had a flukey ending too.

    Dallas sportscaster Dale Hansen slams white privilege in the NFL

    By: Michelle R. Martinelli | January 10, 2019 9:21 am

    This week, the Arizona Cardinals hired Kliff Kingsbury, the 39-year-old former Texas Tech coach who was recently fired after six seasons and a 35-40 record, including three straight losing seasons.

    Like for many fans — they were also stunned that Kingsbury last only a few weeks as USC’s offensive coordinator — Dallas WFAA sportscaster Dale Hansen was surprised by the Cardinals’ coaching hire and criticized it.


    While admonishing the NFL for consistently overlooking coaches of color or being too quick to fire them compared with their white counterparts — he takes a shot at Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett — Hansen recognizes his own white privilege and argues for an end to the obvious double standard.

    He said:


    “Kingsbury fits all the criteria to be a head coach in the NFL: He’s an offensive genius, he’s young — and he’s white, and not necessarily in that order.

    “There have been six new coaches hired so far, all white and two coaches of color. They are replacing Steve Wilks, fired in Arizona after just one year, Vance Joseph in Denver after just two. The Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is in his ninth year — apparently because he wins so much.

    “A lot of people don’t understand how Kingsbury can have a losing record at Texas Tech, no NFL experience, and get one of the 32 NFL jobs. But getting fired at Tech doesn’t eliminate him from moving up — at least it doesn’t to me. I’ve had 11 jobs in my life, been fired from eight of them, and moved up every time. And I am arrogant enough to tell you I think Channel 8 was right to give me another chance. But I am the product of white privilege in America, and I’ve never denied that I wasn’t, either. If they made a poster, my picture should be on it.

    “Getting fired at one place and getting another chance isn’t the problem. But young talented coaches of color not getting the chance — that’s a huge problem. The covert racism of the NFL ownership group was so bad, the NFL had to make a rule so that minority coaches could at least get an interview.

    “Cowboys secondary coach Kris Richard has been interviewed, and there are reports saying he might get the Miami job. After what he’s done with this Cowboys defense, how could he not? Unless it is true what black parents have been telling their children for decades now: You have to be twice as good to go half as far. I dream of the day when those parents are wrong, because now, they’re not.”


    Hansen isn’t one to keep his thoughts to himself and has previously taken strong stances against things like Jerry Jones’ hypocritical national anthem policy and defended peaceful protests in the league.

    I just read that Alvin Kamara has spent every Tuesday this season working as a garbage man.
