I’m not sure which is hotter, Calvin Johnson Jr. discussing his career, relationship with Lions and HOF candidacy or @wyche89  and I discussing another shameful round of HC hirings. You be the judge. 🔥🔥🔥

NFL owners tend to value coordinator experience when hiring head coaches. So what does it say that, as of this morning, none of the four diverse head coaches has an OC or DC who is a person of color?

It can’t be that they’re not capable or qualified. Just look to Tampa Bay, where Bruce Arians’ OC, DC and ST coordinators are all men of color - and the Bucs are in the NFC Championship Game. So ...

This might be the most shameful/damning part of this NFL hiring cycle: Not only was no Black hired as head coach, but no Black was even granted an in-person (second) interview. #InspireChange

Worst flight EVER. After boarding, a man deplaned when he learned his son was killed in the Las Vegas shootings. My heart breaks for him.

FILED TO ESPN: Panthers owner Jerry Richardson being investigated for alleged workplace misconduct.

Really emotional scene outside Eagles locker room. Josh McCown, walking alone, stops on way in, squats and begins to cry. Zach Ertz and another teammate console him. He gave all he had.
