I don’t know how to blog to TheFranchiseOK.com from my phone, which is what I’m doing now. But, many who missed the show today (how dare you!) are asking for my thoughts on the “Mr. Unreliable” headline The Oklahoman gave Kevin Durant (sounds braggadocios… Yuck. Sorry). (Please excuse the all-caps… Most of this is straight...

I remember April 19, 1995 vividly. I was a freshman at Providence High School in Clarksville, Ind. Many students gathered around the TVs as every network was well into their “Special Report” coverage of the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City. I remember being frozen by it. I remember purposely being late for...

Guy is spoofing Matthew McConaughey spoofing AT&T guy spoofing kids

AT&T is spoofing True Detective. Or the other way around. I’m not sure. Either way, brilliant. Especially Fake McConaughey.

My Newest Career Adventure

It’s been an interesting last couple of months.  In one word: humbling. Interest from top markets, no interest from smaller markets, and everything in between. It’s the first time I’ve ever been in this spot where I’m really searching for a job while actually not being employed.  It’s totally been a blessing in disguise. Part of that...

Media are missing the potentially-awesome Peyton Manning narrative

Headlines all over already projecting Manning's legacy ONLY if he loses...

It is Friday.  The NFL playoffs are in full swing.  So my biases are feeling real good.  It’s like going commando, and it feels good (don’t act like going commando doesn’t feel good). So, while I’m “freeballing,” let me go ahead and defend my man, Peyton Manning. The most popular media narrative: “This is the...

‘Duck Dynasty’ star’s screwup gets me mad for another reason

This is not a diatribe on what I think about gays and lesbians. If that’s what you were looking for when you clicked on this, all I can give you is this: in terms of your sexual preference, I do not care, unless you’re going after my main squeeze (otherwise known as ‘Lady EZ’). Then...

Why would Teddy Bridgewater stay at Louisville?

Here's a hint: he wouldn't...

For the Louisville readers (and anyone else interested, I guess), just so I’ve got this straight. Louisville Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is the top quarterback prospect in the upcoming NFL Draft according to many of the draftniks. He’s also graduated. From his twitter account: As of December 16, 2013 10:34 PM, I can officially say...

Lions-Ravens is epitome of why sports aren’t fair

Matt Stafford didn't, all of the sudden, play a bad game

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this. A team plays well enough to win. Has the game all but won. But one final drive by the other team sets them up for a chance, albeit marginal, to win the game. The other team takes advantage of that chance, wins the game. It happens. And...

PODCAST: Let’s be proactive with RG3 and Shanahan for a change
PODCAST: Let’s be proactive with RG3 and Shanahan for a change

The worst part: some media help the cause...

It seems as though the NFL and it’s teams are proactive in almost every other department, other than making personnel changes at the most opportune times in a season.  Why is that?  Plus, clothing gets “retired” and Mark Trestman is a PR stuntman! And do we have any other pieces of clothing we’re going to...
