Random ruminations while wondering whatever happened to Terrence Metcalf...
The former Buffalo Bills quarterback has pretty much been flat on his back for the past two months, as he is undergoing massive doses of chemotherapy and radiation.
Kelly’s family has been right by his side all the time since his first diagnosis.
On Mother’s Day, Kelly managed to dance with his wife and mother of his children, Jill. They held each other in his hospital room before he went back to bed.
Cancer doesn’t care if you are an athlete, a preacher, a cowboy or a wino living on the streets. It has claimed too many lives, but progress is being made and those who would have been dead 10 years ago are now living a good life.
I hope Jill and Jim Kelly will be dancing next Mother’s Day.
They dumped him in what had to be record time for someone who had signed a contract.
Young says he has a position as an ambassador for his alma mater, Texas. I recommend he takes them up on the offer and quit trying to pretend he can make an NFL roster.
It was the biggest blunder Bud Adams made while the Titans were in Tennessee. Adams incorrectly thought Young could duplicate what he did in taking Texas to a national championship in beating Southern Cal in one of the most exciting national championship games in history.
But Young never mastered the mental part of the sport and for an NFL quarterback to be successful they have to recognize what defenses are doing to them and how to counter it.
The cameras were rolling when Sam got a phone call from Rams coach Jeff Fisher. He was highly emotional, which I understand. But to carry on with kissing and hugging his significant other with the cameras rolling was carrying it over the top. I didn’t think it was suitable for the broad-based audience that ESPN and NFL Network has.
It was not just one kiss as most outlets cut it down to. It wasn’t fair to the NFL, or the Rams, which took him in the seventh round. It would have been interesting to see if any other team would have drafted him if the Rams had passed on him.
Michael Sam has to live his life the way he chooses. I have no problem with that. But he also needs to learn what it means to be a professional.
Does the name sound familiar? It should. He is the brother of former Florida Gator point guard Scottie Wilbekin. Mitchell averaged 15 points, 2.8 steals and 2.1 assists at the Rock School in Florida.
He is 6-1, 165 pounds and was ranked a 3-star recruit by Rivals.com.
While I thought Gundy was a goober for losing control of his emotions that day, I applaud him for how he handled the NCAA penalty handed down to the Cowboys program for falling just short in a four-year APR performance report.
The team will have two practice hours per week this season after their APR score was .09 points short of the required mark.
Gundy took it like a man. He pointed the finger at himself.
“I’m in charge,’’ he said. “It’s not the AD’s fault. It’s not the president’s fault. It’s not anyone’s fault but mine.’’
Viola is the AAU National Champion in her age group and has been invited to he AAU Olympics later this summer.
Too soon to tell but there may be another professional in the Greenwood family in the future.
Jaws went on to predict that Matthews will be this season’s offensive Rookie of the Year.
The SEC had 11 players taken in the first round, the ACC had five.
LSU led all teams with nine players drafted. Alabama and Notre Dame saw eight of their players picked in the seven-round draft.
National champion Florida State had seven players drafted, with Ohio State and Stanford got six taken in the draft.
There were 10 4-stars, 15 3-stars and two 2-stars. Bryce Brown was drafted as a running back and he never played a down in college.
It was also the first times since the 1930s that no Unifersity of Texas players were picked in the draft.
