Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia forcefully denied allegations that he committed sexual assault as a college student 22 years ago, saying in a seven-minute press conference Thursday the truth is on my side….
I really think it’s possible that this collaboration could make the NFL the organization that could be the leader in the #MeToo movement, Blackwell said. The NFL could really set an example. We don’t want them to say, ‘We’re sorry.’ We want them to say, ‘We’re going to do all we can to make sure (cheerleaders) are treated with respect.
This first pitch proves Gbaja-Biamila should stick to the two things he does best: football and television announcing. After going undrafted in 2003, he was signed by the Raiders, and he went on to stick in Oakland for two seasons, playing defensive end, linebacker and on special teams. He played in 27 games for the Raiders and had a couple of sacks. He was out of football in 2005, but he returned in 2006, appearing in three games for the Chargers. He also played one game for the Dolphins in 2007 before retiring ahead of the 2008 season. Is this first pitch worse than 50 Cent’s?
More Gbaja-Biamila then turned to broadcasting. In 2005, he had attended the NFL’s Broadcast Boot Camp, and he carried that passion into retirement. He appeared on ABC’sExpedition Impossible and also began broadcasting college athletics for CBS College Sports in the late 2000s. He is currently a host for NFL Network’sNFL Fantasy Live and a co-host forAmerican Ninja Warrior.
Here’s an attempt by ranking Witten among the 15 greatest Cowboys players of all time, a list so impressive that several Hall of Famers — Mike Ditka, Charles Haley, Terrell Owens and Rayfield Wright — were excluded:
He gets too much blame for Dallas’ 22-year Super Bowl drought. Nevertheless, the man who holds most of the franchise’s significant passing records — they include yards (34,183), TDs (248) and QB rating (97.1) — deserves a mention.
Prime would surely bristle at this position, which is more indicative of his short stay in Big D (5 years) than his unparalleled coverage ability. But he was only on one Cowboys Super Bowl team (1995) and missed half that season.
