Sports Bio

I follow the teams from Dallas-Fort Worth because I grew up with them, but I've adopted the Jacksonville Jaguars, the only pro team my new hometown is ever likely to get. The most memorable sporting event I attended live was game 6 of the NBA Western Conference finals in 1988 at Reunion Arena -- Mavericks vs. Lakers -- when Mark Aguirre and his prodigious caboose received half the game MVP award, and the 17,007 fans in attendance received the other half. I also follow U.S. Soccer, Sheffield Wednesday and Orlando City SC because members of this site dragged me into the beautiful game for the first time since the Dallas Tornado folded.

NFL Pickem Week 6: Chucky Got Chucked Edition

I've never met him in person, never even exchanged notes on FB, but I read one of his books last year and enjoyed it a lot, so when his name showed up on "People You Might Know," I sent a friend request.

The Jaguars have been losing watchably this season. You get to see good plays from Trevor Lawrence, James Robinson and the rest of the offense for two quarters and good plays from the opponent's offense for all four quarters.

Seattle opened as favorites on the road but the line's now Pittsburgh by 5. The bookmakers were slow to get the news that Geno Smith is starting for the Seahawks.

Current Standings

I still need to doublecheck the week by week scores to make sure the total scores are correct. Rumple's scorekeeping went wonky in recent weeks.

Don't forget that the Jags/Dolphins game starts at 9:30 a.m. because it's in London.

The Wild's Winter Classic throwback unis are so great I can almost forgive the franchise for choosing such a strange noun as the team name.

Raiders Fire Gruden Over Bigoted Emails

If Gruden wants to coach college ball, there's probably a program that's willing to hire him.

I think it would take a year, but a G5 program mired in mediocrity would hire him. I will not be identifying any particular program in such shape so don't even ask. #MeanGreen

Raiders Fire Gruden Over Bigoted Emails

Gruden has lost the job and the cushiest landing place for NFL coaches who lose their jobs -- the announcing booth. He's radioactive.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Tampa Bay began its NFL life in the AFC West, moving to the NFC Central the next season.

Seattle began in the NFC West and moved to the AFC West.

This was planned so that the teams could play each other twice and every other NFL team once during their first two seasons.

Friendlies make more sense in leagues where they accumulate far more players than they need.

Question: I accidentally placed the wrong team as a "lock". How do I get back in to the selector to change the selection?

Lots of blown locks on the Chiefs. The two players picking the Jaguars were looking like geniuses after Jamal Agnew's 106-yard missed field goal return and a third quarter James Robinson touchdown put Jacksonville up 19-10. Then reality intruded.
