SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Kyler didn't have a chance because the Rams Defensive front owned the Cards O-Line. Did not matter what play they called the Rams stuffed it. Rams O-line killed the Cards as well. They could have ran the ball the entire game without throwing a pass and still won going away.

Bucs offense may have a better chance against the Rams D as they have tight ends and backs who can block for the second or 2 it takes to hit the quick screens they live off of. If they hold the ball 4 or 5 seconds on every play it's over.

The question should be why did Dak not go down earlier knowing how much time was left. And why did he not hand the ball to the official - did he not know the rules? Watch the replays - the official ran as quickly as he could to get to the ball but was blocked by Cowboys players. He had to push the center to get at the ball as well - did the center not know the rules? Cowboys have talent at all the key positions but they were an absolute mess. Terribly unprepared.

Oh no. It is never good to be on the Acquisition side of the M&A game. And that is all it is: a game for executives to increase the value of their own options in the short term.

Unvaccinated Novak Djokovic Can't Enter Australia

He made the choice, he knows the likely consequences. Great player and the Open will miss him. But stop with the "hostage" bullshit already.

Coach Kicks Kicker

Here's the thing - it's not as if Meyer turned into an arrogant narcissistic pos over night. The organization knew exactly what it was getting when they hired him. The organization did nothing when the kicker event first happened and would have done nothing now if Meyer had the Jags looking like they could become competitive any time soon. It's only because the product on the field has showed no signs of improvement that they decided to can the guy. Happens in every sport.

Early report is Parnham is in stable condition. He looked to be in really bad shape. What genius at Fox decided to show that replay clip? And somebody needs to stop Buck from drinking during broadcasts ... what an idiot.
