Daly Doses: Thoughts, reflections, and derision from the Mile High City!

Doses

  • Another week of meaningless NFL preseason football. And nothing to show for it but some major injuries to key players.
  • The Packers lost wide receiver Jordy Nelson to an ACL. He could miss the season.
  • The Steelers lost center Maurkice Pouncey to a broken fibula that will require surgery.
  • But the NFL owners didn’t lose a dime as they charged their season ticket holders for every one of those terrible scrimmages.
  • And somehow the Washington Redskins did not lose their quarterback Robert Griffin III, depsite their best efforts to get him killed aginst the Detroit Lions last week. Griffin was sacked threee times, hit numerous other times, and fumbled twice, before leaving with concussion symptoms.
  • The word in Washington is that Griffin is buddies with Washignton owner Daniel Snyder; and that Snyder insists on the coaching staff naming Griffin the starter.
  • Everytime he went down I swear I saw his head coach Jay Gruden giggling on the sideline.
  • Did you see Tiger Woods went into Sunday’s final day at the Wyndham Championship just two strokes off the lead?
  • He shot a 70 on Sunday and finished at No. 178 in the final standings as 51 year old Davis Love III became the third oldest winner in PGA history.
  • It is no longer surprising in any way when Tiger melts down. In fact, it’s expected.
  • Next thing you’ll be telling me that he might have more than one girlfriend.
  • Peyton Manning says that due to the neck surgeries he has undergone he doesn’t have any feeling in the fingertips of his right hand.
  • So you’re telling me he can tickle himself?
  • Oh excuse me for being Mr. Optimist.
  • Video evidence was floating around that at the 2014 NFL Rookie Symposium Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter stated that NFL players need to find a “fall guy” for when they get in to trouble.
  • Carter was not telling these young men to make better decisions or to be careful of the people that they trust. He instead decided to told them they are too stupid to stay out of trouble so they had better get someone to pay the price for their sins.
  • In New England they call those guys “ball boys”.
