Jerry Jones threatens to sue Atlanta Falcons after Sunday blowout

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been threatening to sue the NFL, and some of its fellow owners, over contract negotiations with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

On Sunday, Jones stated that he also plans to sue the Atlanta Falcons for beating his Cowboys 27-7 in their Week 10 contest.

His feud with Goodell stems from Jones’s anger over the commissioner’s suspending of Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys’ star running back, who was accused of domestic violence by his former girlfriend. Goodell sentenced Elliott to a six-game suspension, even though no charges were filed in the case, and Sunday was the first game that the Cowboys were without their star runner.

In Elliott’s absence, Dallas managed just 233 total yards, as the Falcons sacked Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott eight different times.

Following the game, Jones told the Daly Dose of his plans to file a suit against the Falcons franchise.

“It was unfair what they did to us on Sunday.” Jones ranted. ” They knew that we didn’t have Zeke in that backfield, and they took advantage of us. The Falcons are an NFL bully, and they picked on us on Sunday, because we are smaller and weaker.”

“It’s the same thing with the NFL.” he continued. “They like to bully us, because we are a small market franchise, just trying to carve out our place in a very competitive league. So I am going to sue the Falcons. I am going to sue the NFL. I am going to sue Johnny Walker Black for this glass being empty, and I am going to sue the Daly Dose if you tell anyone about this conversation.”

Denver Broncos “shocked” that Brock Osweiler didn’t salvage their season

After a 51-23 beatdown at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Denver Broncos management is at a loss. They had benched starting quarterback Trevor Siemian, and inserted veteran Brock Osweiler into the starting lineup, with hopes of an immediate turnaround. However, those hopes were dashed on Sunday as Osweiler finished the game 19 for 38 with just 208 yards, and two interceptions in the loss.

Osweiler

“We had expected Brock Osweiler to really give our season a lift.” stated head coach Vance Joseph. “Obviously, there was a flaw in our thinking. We knew in the back of our minds that he sucks. Everyone knows he sucks. So, that was a mistake on our part.”

Vice President of Football Operations John Elway spoke to the surprise that he felt as Osweiler and the Broncos struggled on Sunday.

“We had considered Brock to be kind of an ace in our sleeve.” Elway told the Daly Dose. “But I couldn’t tell the difference between Brock and Trevor in this game, except that Brock is taller (Osweiler is 6’8″ while Siemian is listed as 6’3″) other than that he looked exactly the same.”

“When we drafted Brock back in 2012, we felt like he could be a talented player, with a bright future in the NFL. That hasn’t turned out the way that we would have liked. Paxton Lynch has also been disappointing so far. After the loss on Sunday, I think we have no choice but to look to the future. I think it is apparent that we will need to draft another quarterback for this team. I think it is also apparent that he needs to be taller. I am hoping to find a quarterback out there that is in the 6-foot-9 or 6-foot-10 range. A seven-footer would be ideal. I think that would mean a big improvement for our offense.”

Local man hatches scheme to convince coworkers he didn’t fall asleep during big game

While many sports fans around the world were witnessing one of the most exciting Major League Baseball games in modern history, a local Houston man succumbed to one of his most primal urges.

The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 13-12 in Game 5 of the World Series, a 10-inning thriller that lasted over five hours. The win gives the Astros a 3-2 lead in the best of seven World Series, and has the city of Houston buzzing over the possibility of their first major championship in 22 years.

However, not every Astros fan was joining in on the celebration, on Sunday night.

Mark Whitman, a Houston native, and loyal Astros fan admitted that he dozed off “sometime during the fifth inning with Los Angeles leading 7-4. I had worked a double shift at the packing plant on Saturday. So I was tired.” Whitman stated.

It was when he returned to his job on Monday morning, that he discovered a major problem.

“As soon as I walked in the door to our employee break room, I was met with high fives from coworkers, and my boss Don made the comment that  ‘he would fire anyone who dared to fall asleep during that game’. I had to come up with a plan, and I had to do it quickly.”

Whitman immediately excused himself from the room, and found a newspaper where he read the sports section to find out what had happened the night before. “I knew that I didn’t have much time to study the box-score, but I had to memorize as much information as I could.”

“When I returned to the break room, I was ready. My coworker Jeff said that he thought the game was over in the 5th inning when (Dodgers first baseman) Cody Bellinger hit that three run home run.”

Whitman was quick to retort “I thought it was over when (Astros shortstop) Carlos Correa homered to left field, for a 328 foot home run!”

Whitman had made a narrow escape. Yes, his statement of the length of the home run was an amateur mistake, but his coworker Jeff was too excited to notice. He high-fived Whitman, and the two shared a special bonding moment.

“I survived.” Whitman said. “It was a white knuckle ride, but I made it.”

Bandwagon NFL fan feeling disoriented after confusing start to the season

A 38-year-old man in Southern California is feeling very bewildered after a rollercoaster start to the NFL season.

Lewis Meyer, a Los Angeles native, and admitted front runner fan, says that he is suffering from a feeling of disorientation about which NFL team to pretend to cheer for.

“Usually it is pretty simple.” stated Meyer. “I pick one of the favorites and go buy a t-shirt or two and get real vocal at work about my rooting interest, but this year has been tough. The Cowboys are up and down, the Patriots don’t play any defense, and the Packers look terrible without Aaron Rodgers.”

Is there a temptation to just cheer for one of the teams from his hometown?

“That’s when you know things are crazy.” Meyer countered. “The Rams actually look like they could be a contender, but I haven’t cheered for them since they were the “Greatest Show on Turf”, and when they lost that Super Bowl, it really hurt me. I vowed then and there, that I would not root for them again, unless I really knew they had a chance to win something. I have been a Raiders fan before but they are struggling, and the 49ers are terrible.”

The Chargers seem to be heating up, after winning two games in a row.

“I’m not falling for that again.” he responded. “They have hurt me so many times. It is just a matter of time before they do it again.”

“I had an aunt once who lived in Pennsylvania. Maybe I could pretend to be an Eagles fan until something better comes along.” he continued. “It’s a tough time to be true fan, right now.”
