Ricky Jean Francois had some awesome cleats in honor of the late Craig Sager

This week the NBA, lost an iconic figure in Craig Sager.  He was one of the best and oldest reporters in all four major sports.  Sager had a way of separating himself from everyone else, and that was his amazing outfits. 

Well last night Ricky Jean Francois wore some cleats against the Panthers, and they were fire…

Joe Theismann says locking up Kirk Cousins is a must; Redskins are sending bad message

Kirk Cousins needs to get paid and quickly

Are the Washington Redskins sending a bad message to the fans and the city of Washington, DC? According to Joe Theismann they are, and it he believes Kirk Cousins needs to be extended very soon.

Theismann told 106.7 The Fan’s “Grant and Danny” show this week that not signing Cousins to a long-term deal is a bad move.

“How much more do you need to see?” Theismann said, via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post. “What does that say to the fans and to the other players on the team, when somebody plays at the level that Kirk is playing at, and he doesn’t get what would be fair compensation — whatever that compensation might be? The players are sitting there going, ‘Wow, look at what this guy has done, and this is the way they reward him?’ … You’ve invested all this time in him. Why would you not continue to have him be your guy?”

“It’s almost like he’s said, ‘What else do you need me to do?’” Theismann continued. “You know, ‘I’ve been consistent, I show up every day for work, I’m not a pain in the organization’s neck, I’m a great citizen of the NFL and a great representative of the Washington Redskins, my play on the field stands for itself.’ And all those factors I think you have to consider…. And then the final factor is what to we do, where do we go if we don’t have him? See, I think it would rub a lot of people the wrong way if they couldn’t work a deal out. And it’s got to be a deal on both sides. It can’t just be the Redskins saying, ‘Okay, whatever you want, here it is.’ I think Kirk and his people have to sit down at the proper time and say, ‘Okay, what’s fair to the organization, what’s fair to me,’ and everybody’s got to win in a negotiation.”

 

Josh Norman fires back at Dez Bryant; “Not a battle when the other person doesn’t show up”

Josh Norman has finally responded to the antics and comments of Dez Bryant after the Cowboys/Redskins turkey leg showdown. Norman says he does not believe it is a battle if one person doesn’t show up.

“It just baffles me that we’re going back and forth,” Norman told NFL.com by phone after a day of reflection, watching countless media outlets focus on Dez Bryant’s comments after their Thanksgiving showdown. “I don’t know if there really is anything to say. What am I going to go back and forth for? It’s not a battle. It’s not a competition when the other person don’t show up. What am I competing against? I compete against myself every week.”

In 2015, Norman while with the Panthers told the media the Cowboys had to get their 70 million dollars back for Dez.  That was Dez Bryant’s response back to him after their week 12 match-up on Thanksgiving. Norman however was not impressed:

“Come on, man,” Norman told me this week. “Be original.”

“I have obstacles every week,” Norman said. “This is just one of the matchups, just one of the obstacles. This is what he gets up for, not me. He’s just another one of the guys that I face. One of the tall tasks they got me stacked up against.”

“If you have a big impact, go off,” Norman said. “But you didn’t.” Norman found Bryant was out of his game, trash-talking out of frustration and moving into the slot to escape. In the Redskins’ defense, Norman doesn’t follow Bryant there. He admits the Cowboys are good — who wouldn’t?

“But it’s not like he carries them,” Norman said. “They carry themselves. That stuff he does, it’s just extra antics.”

“I hope we see them again,” he said.

 

If Kirk Cousins stays the course he will throw for 5000 yards joining an elite crew

 

Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins of the Redskins has been playing lights out.

Only five quarterbacks in NFL history have thrown for more than 5000 yards in a season, and Kirk Cousins is on pace to hit that mark.

Kirk Cousins is playing right now on a pretty amazing level. He is averaging 295 yards per game and if he keeps it up he will end the season with 5015 yards.  Which would put him on a list with some pretty elite quarterbacks.

Right now, Cousins has thrown for 3,540 yards after 12 games. That is pretty insane. I believe the Redskins may have to Franchise Tag him again. If not they are going to have to pay him a TON of money. If I was Jay Gruden and the Skins, I would tag him.  You cannot lose, because if he turns back to his old way of throwing picks and making bad decisions, you can always walk.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant says the Redskins need a refund from Josh Norman

Dez Bryant told reporters after the game that the Redskins need to get their money back.

“I won’t say emotional on my end, I’m [going to] say emotional on his end,” Bryant said. “I was perfectly fine. I was just wearing his ass out the whole night. That’s what I was doing, and I enjoyed it. Washington needs to get their money back.”

Norman said after the game that he didn’t feel he was burnt, and the stats agree with him. He allowed 3 receptions for 32 yards and zero touchdowns. The reporter told Norman the stats and Norman went off

“Exactly,” Norman said “But I’m trash and he beat me all day? I just don’t get it, I don’t understand. But if that boost his ego, or feed him some fuel or whatever kind of thing he got in his head, so be it. But I’ve played the guy three times already and my numbers speak for themselves. He can go and cry, holler, hoot, whatever you want, at the end of the day, zero touchdowns.”
