The Sunday: Down, Out & Dancin

Kicked Out Of The Nest

Early last year I wrote that Chip Kelly may end up being the next Bill Walsh with his bold moves and innovative approach that everyone thought was nuts. Guest writer Dave Trausneck did point out back in 2013 that Kelly isn’t right for the NFL.

Dave may be right.

Chip KellyIf Kelly does turn out to be the next Bill Walsh he won’t be roaming the sidelines for the Philadelphia Eagles. Kelly was let go on Tuesday and owner Jeff Lurie cited the ‘trajectory’ of the team.

Kelly says he wants to remain the NFL but there are probably some collegiate teams who are having buyers remorse when it comes to their head coaching hires over the recent months.

Falling Down

The only thing better than getting a hoverboard this Holiday Season are the videos of people falling off them….or almost falling off of them.

Thank you Mike Tyson and John Calipari. You brought 2016 in with a thud.

 

WTF?

The Carolina Panthers lost their first game of the season last week to the Atlanta Falcons. Pretty sure that this play call didn’t help.

 

Big Class Bob

One could imagine that Oklahoma head coach was pretty down after his teams 37-17 loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff. That didn’t stop him from coming back out onto the field and congratulating former assistant Brent Venables. 

 

Best of Bowls

There was a lot of football over the last two weeks. Pretty sure that no one was ever more wide open than the fullback from Kansas State.

Tennessee QB Josh Dobbs didn’t panic, he just calmly picked up the ball and tiptoed in for a touchdown.

TCU came back from a 31-0 halftime deficit to defeat Oregon tying the largest comeback in a bowl game. While Oregon never seemed to recover from QB Vernon Adams exiting the game with what appeared to be a concussion, the comeback was really fueled by TCU’s head coach Gary Patterson and his change of shirts.

Patterson wore a black shirt in the first half and then changed to a purple one in the second. They rattled off 31 unanswered points in the second half.  Safe to say that the purple shirt is stayin.

Then there was the Christian McCaffery fan.

And to celebrate the end of bowl season I give you Tennessee dancing.
