Don Shula passed away Monday at the age of 90.

Don Shula is one of the greatest coaches in NFL history.

He is the most winningest coach in NFL history (347).

He paved the way for so many future generations of coaches.

And if he isn’t on your Mount Rushmore of NFL coaches….I don’t want to know you…

“The NFL Draft Brought Me Back To Life!!” (DTS Podcast – #100)

Everyone, pretend you haven’t heard this from anyone else yet, and be safe out there.

Be safer than safe….by staying home.

Work and the food store. That’s it.

As for the NFL Draft, all things considered, it wasn’t bad.

Oh, and Aaron Rodgers probably isn’t the happiest man in the United States anymore. Sorry pal. Discount double check that!

“YOU MUST FIRE ADAM GASE!!!!” (DTS Podcast – #77)

There is no reason to wait any longer.

The Jets MUST FIRE ADAM GASE!!!!

I don’t care that it’s only been half of a season. I don’t care that Sam Darnold had Mono. I don’t care. I don’t care. I don’t care.

Adam Gase has crazy eyes. Adam Gase, by all accounts, is a bad guy. And Adam Gase must be stopped — NOW!!

The NFL Trade Deadline was uneventful.

The Jets NOT trading players became the storyline of the day.

Now, Jamal Adams has one-and-a-half feet out the door.

Good job Jets!!

And, we are being blessed with a Game 7 in the World Series, and NOBODY CARES!!!!

“The NEW YORK JETS Are EVERYTHING That’s WRONG With The NFL!!!!” (DTS Podcast – #73)

Adam Gase is the worst coach in the NFL.

The Jets are the worst team in the NFL (The Bengals and Dolphins don’t count as teams anymore….).

Leonard Williams is now the Giants’ problem.

Hello 3rd round pick. Goodbye $4 Million.

It’s time to trade everything not tied down.

“Incompetence Is The Name Of The Game” (DTS Podcast – #71)

New York sports used to be awesome.

Now, outside of the Yankees, New York sports sucks something awful.

And on top of that, The Knicks and Jets are incompetent, stupid, foolish, immature, and did I mention incompetent????

Okay, good, just checking….

You can go to Training Camp. I’m not going. You can go if you want, but I’m not going.

BREAKING NEWS: The Cleveland Browns Won A Football Game!!!!

A lot has happened in the last 635 days.

No, I won’t make a list, just take my word for it….

It’s hard to fathom being as bad as the Cleveland Browns. But, despite walking around with that rancid, putrid, rotten taste of losing they can’t seem to wash out of their mouths, they won a football game Thursday night. A football game — in real life.

no way

When NFL teams look at their schedule for an upcoming season, they “circle” winnable games. Every team should circle every game by the way, but hey, what do I know?! Thursday night, the Jets circled the Browns, and the Browns circled the Jets. That’s what you get when two “bottom-third” teams play each other. While neither team is running to buy plane tickets to Super Bowl LIII, it made for an exciting game.

What started as a defensive struggle, ended with a 4th quarter comeback. Yes, Baker Mayfield, the #1 pick in the 2018 draft, entered the game and brought Cleveland their 1st taste of victory since December 24th, 2016.

Was Mayfield impressive?? Absolutely. Should Browns’ fans rejoice?? Of course. Hell, I’d be dancing up and down the streets if I were them. BUT, this doesn’t mean Baker Mayfield is the next coming of John Elway. It doesn’t mean selecting Mayfield over Darnold was the right decision. And it doesn’t mean he will have a good career. It’s simply a really good performance in his 1st action in the NFL.

Don’t forget he was playing the Jets….

Ah yes, my Jets. The same way I’m not going to overreact to Mayfield’s efficient performance, I’m not going to overreact to Darnold’s perceived struggles. They’re undoubtedly talented, but they’re rookies. Now is the time to find the positives in Darnold’s performances. Now is the time to open your eyes and see that the Jets’ offensive line is terrible. Now is the time to recognize that Todd Bowles is the worst head coach in the NFL.

Darnold is scrambling for his life (showing off his spectacular footwork — a.k.a. his survival skills). Robby Anderson has no clue how to hold on to a football. Terrelle Pryor Sr. has forgotten everything there is to know about football. And, did I mention Todd Bowles is the worst head coach in the NFL????

raw

While the Jets lost 21-17 (the exact score I predicted hours before kickoff) to the Browns, wins and losses aren’t a concern.

SAM DARNOLD’S PROGRESS IS THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS!!!!

Envision 2020. Close your eyes if necessary. Picture Tom Brady’s retirement ceremony. The AFC East is up for grabs. And Sam Darnold, paired with a good offensive line, wide receivers who can catch, and a defensive line that gets pressure on opposing quarterbacks, stand atop their division.

Now that….is a world I can get used to living in.
