RIP Jim Lynch. A key part of one of the greatest LB corps ever, and a man with a great name for an LB. RIng of Honor member and a classy guy if you ever get to see him speak about his playing days.

That does seem like a real stretch. I haven’t seen the details, but at this point Murray seems like more promise than reality. He has a lot of tools but hasn’t seemed to be able to put it together yet. Maybe the salary cap is going to explode and it won’t look so bad in a couple of years but I’m glad that’s not my team.

Madden’s top two kickers for 2022 are (drum-roll, please!) …

1. Justin Tucker, Ravens (90)
2. Harrison Butker, Chiefs (84)

Tailgating at Arrowhead: Best Thing Ever! (of course, we’ve known this for YEARS)

The Cowboys scored low in terms of location. When a team bills itself as being in Dallas but is actually 19 miles away in another county, it tends to drag down such a score. The Cowboys tallied a below average score of 15 in this area.

For Kansas City, location was also an issue as they scored a 10. Understandably, tailgating was the biggest factor that helped the Chiefs as they earned a top ranked 32 for their parking lot parties. Dallas had a lower score in this area at 20.

Starting this next week, traffic near my house could get a bit dicey. Forgot to mention to you guys that, back in April, my wife and I purchased our first house. We’ve just been busy trying to get it fixed up and watching our now 18-month old. Why talk about the traffic? Our house is a 5 minute drive from the Vikings team facilities, which means getting onto the interstate for work could be interesting.

Nice!

Years ago, I got to meet Bret Michaels, lead singer of Poison. In a small town in Nebraska, the most unlikely of places. Had a good conversation with him about a lot of deep things. Also found out he’s a type 1 diabetic. Friends of mine raved over the picture we took together.
