Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The tide can turn fast on you in life, as you can be the reigning NFL MVP one day and a “entitled” team wrecker the next. Life is such for Cam Newton, who is continuing to face criticism over his tie fiasco from this weekend.

While appearing on The Jason Smith Show, Joe Theismann gave his opinion on everything NFL, including the Carolina Panthers star quarterback.

Theismann swears he’s a huge fan of Newton’s, before crushing him on the air, labeling Cam a "spoiled brat" as well.

Miguel Cotto Agrees to Fight vs James Kirkland at Dallas Cowboys Facility

The Dallas Cowboys are preparing to put their sparkling, new state-of-the-art training facility to use in a non-football related activity.

Miguel Cotto will end a 15-month layoff by battling James Kirkland in a junior middleweight fight on Feb. 25, Cotto Promotions executive Bryan Perez told Dan Rafael of on Wednesday.

The scheduled 12-round bout will headline an HBO PPV card being put on by Roc Nation Sports and Cotto Promotions. It will take place at the Ford Center at The Star, the new training facility of the Dallas Cowboys in Frisco, Texas, that includes a 12,000-seat arena.

Perez said the fight has been agreed to, and he expected a formal announcement by Roc Nation Sports as soon as Thursday.

“Miguel is back in the ring and we are all excited,” Perez said. “Like he always does, Miguel wants to go in the ring and put on a great show.”

Cotto (40-5, 33 KOs) has been champion at junior welterweight, welterweight, junior middleweight and middleweight, but has been out of action since losing a clear unanimous decision title to Canelo Alvarez in their November 2015 fight in Las Vegas.

Roc Nation was reportedly hoping this would be a pay-per-view bout, as the bout against Kirkland will be Cotto’s last officially with Roc Nation, and he’s do in advance of $10 million for the fight. Kirkland (32-2, 28 KOs) hasn’t fought since being brutalized by Canelo Alvarez in 2015.

“We tried to do other fights, but you know how the business is,” Perez said. “Kirkland was there, he was willing to fight Miguel, he makes good fights, and we made the fight. Miguel will do his best to give a great show and an exciting fight.

“Miguel can’t wait to start training with Freddie. I think the year off was good for Miguel, but he is ready to fight again.”

Cotto, 36, has usually fought in New York.

Brandon Marshall Explains How Painkillers Caused Him to Barely Remember 3-TD Game in 2014

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall dominated the San Francisco 49ers in the Bay a few years ago, but he barely remembers his accomplishments from that night.

Speaking to Bay Area reporters via conference call Wednesday, Marshall said his memories of his three-touchdown game against the 49ers in 2014 were fuzzy at best because of pain pills.

“I don’t really remember much about that game, because I worked really hard to get back from a high ankle [sprain],” Marshall said.

In further explaining what happened that night, Marshall makes it seems as if he indulged too much on pain blockage.

“I’ll say it: I took a couple pain pills that masked the pain,” Marshall said. “I really wasn’t supposed to play. I came back from a high ankle [sprain] within 10 days. I was supposed to be out four to six weeks. I don’t remember much from that game. I just remember catching those balls. And that was pretty much it.”

Marshall had five catches for 48 yards and three touchdowns in Chicago’s 28-20 win against San Francisco in Week 2 of the 2014 season with the Chicago Bears.
