Finally, Daniel Jeremiah wrote a cool piece on how Griffin's presence has changed the Redskins offense. It's always a plus when you can use the term "easy heat."
The Lombardi/Belichick Trophy is never going to happen. If another coach's name was going on the trophy, we'd roll with one of Belichick's heroes Paul Brown. Among all-time NFL coaches, my Mount Rushmore would be Lombardi, Brown, Bill Walsh, and Belichick.
A Bad Day For ...
The Cleveland Browns are understandably excited for the change in ownership despite all the questions it brings. It was not a good day for rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden. The 28-year-old rookie essentially has a one-year tryout for the new Browns regime. A new coach and general manager are likely. They usually want their own quarterback, unless Weeden performs too well this year to be denied.
Cincinnati's true No. 2
I've always been a huge fan of Gresham because he is a massive player with fantastic hands. He's not going to get the big plays of a player like Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham, but Gresham could score double digit touchdowns with a high volume of catches.
On the agenda
Marc Sessler is in Canton all weekend covering Hall of Fame festivities. I'm going to try to take care of my 10-month old daughter Ellis and write all day for the first time ever. Wish me luck. (And expect lots of posts with words "like 11ssldfk" mixed in.)
