Tony Gonzalez just quietly berated Cam Newton, using a TMZ reporter's narration to help explain how being “entitled” and “big time" could be at the crux of the quarterback's and the Carolina Panthers' issues.
TMZ Sports caught up with the former NFL great, who believes Newton’s issues are less to do about a tie, and more about the reigning NFL MVP believing he’s bigger than the team.
I understand teams and organizations facing some adversity during a rebuild, but this is just disgraceful from Jeff Fisher.
Five years after hiring Fisher, the Los Angeles Rams now rank 32nd in points, 32nd in yards, and 32nd in first downs. This explains why everyone was shocked that he picked up a contract extension.
In trying to explain his and the Rams offensive ineptitude, Fisher may have created a firestorm when he used the personal tragedies of two LA offensive players as an excuse for why the team has been stuck in the mud for all these years.
“I look at this as being my responsibility, the win-loss record. We need to do a better job from a personnel standpoint. We’ve had some unfortunate things take place with some high picks in Stedman Bailey and Tre Mason and those kind of things that you don’t anticipate. But we’re moving forward.”
The last time one of Jeff Fisher’s teams had a winning record was in 2008. Also if the Rams lose another game, Fisher will become just the fifth coach in history with five consecutive losing seasons with the same team.
Yet New York Jets' Todd Bowles is coaching for his life, with a roster lacking just as much talent, if not more than the Rams.
If I’m not mistaken, Phil Jackson was experimenting with cannabis long before the back and hip pains!
Following the tune of Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, who admitting to trying medicinal marijuana after back surgery sidelined him for part of the 2015-16 NBA season, Jackson has also coped to using the drug for similar reason.
"[When I was recovering from back surgery], I was smoking marijuana during that period of time,” Jackson said. “I think it was a distraction for me as much as a pain reliever. But I never thought of it as ultimately a pain medication for that type of situation … We have tried to stop [marijuana use] in the NBA. I don’t think we have been able to stop it. I think it still goes on and is still a part of the culture in the NBA. It is something that we either have to accommodate or figure out another way to deal with it."
Jackson, a noted hippie, was likely smoking weed with or without back pain, especially after admitting that he’s tripped off of LSD a few times.
Kudos to Jackson for being honest about it as well.
