Tyler Gaffney (that's "2 Time SuperBowl Champion Tyler Gaffney" to you) is tearing it up for the Pittsburgh Pirates

Gaffney hit .291/.391/.470 in 38 games with Bradenton, collecting 15 extra-base hits and going 10-for-15 in steals. He was a 2012 draft pick, who played one year in the New York-Penn League before pursuing an NFL career

His theme that Gase is more one of the guys and he finds that to be refreshing after dealing with Bill the Principal was understandable.

I can believe that it’s more enjoyable to play for a friend. But I know that Bill’s approach works fabulously.

My only question is does it ever stop working because guys just get tired of it or tune the head man out? I think the answer is a resounding no but given the behavior of Brady and Gronk, and some other signs, I guess I’m slightly less sure than I would have been last year at this time.

PS:

These recent comments by James Harrison touch on some of the same themes that Dola addressed, albeit from perhaps the opposite perspective:

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but when the “Undisputed” team asked Harrison who the better coach is, he picked Belichick.

Skip Bayless: “Give us the better coach, Mike Tomlin or Bill Belichick?”

Harrison: “Belichick.”

Bayless: “By far?”

Harrison: “To me, yes.”

To Harrison, it comes down to discipline, a quality that Harrison says Tomlin needs more of.

Harrison: “Mike Tomlin is good as a head coach. He’s a player’s coach. I think he needs to be a little bit more disciplined. Other than that, the big thing with Belichick, he’s very regimented, he’s disciplined. Everybody is going to be on the same page … Over there, their coaching staff is like that. … I ain’t never been to so many meetings in my life.”

Harrison went on to talk about how all of the meetings in New England helped him pick up the defense in a short time fame, and how everybody shows up on time to meetings because they’re all afraid of being late, including Tom Brady. He also said Tomlin could be “more consistent across the board with everyone, from your stars to your special teams.”

And yes, Gase and Tomlin are not one and the same.

Good for Jimmy I guess? Dating a woman who is a porn star and former (?) escort probably wouldn’t be my first move - good looking guy with lots of money. But whatever floats your boat

I’ll be honest, I probably wouldn’t be super exicited if that’s the route Brady took even if it’s unfair.

Brady had a life before Giselle.

After two weeks, Malcolm Butler has been targeted 17 times giving up the most DB yardage allowed (257) and TDs allowed (3). He has been terrible so far this year against the deep ball.

Willie McGinest getting the A Football Life treatment on Friday. This trailer has me pumped and jacked:

It brought a warm feeling to my heart when Paul Tagliabue appeared on screen to announce the McGinest pick. It made me nostalgic for the days when actual competent adults were in charge of things.

I am not gloating, as I love Malcolm and wish him the best. Certainly, though, it looks like Bill made the right choice.
Same with Lewis. First 4 games with the Titans:
  • at MIA: 16 rushes for 75 yards (4.69 YA) + 5 receptions for 35 yards + 1 TD
  • vs HOU: 14 rushes for 42 yards (3.00 YA) + 1 reception for 1 yard + 0 TD
  • at JAX: 8 rushes for 26 yards (2.89 YA) + 3 receptions for 14 yards + 0 TD
  • vs PHI: 4 rushes for 0 yards + 9 receptions for 66 yards + 0 TD
Michel's at 5th in rushing yards (32nd in avg) while Lewis is at 36th (67th in avg).

Dion Lewis with 211 touches for Titans this year, he had 212 for NE last year, so he'll likely get a few more, but essentially the same. Fewer rushes, more catches, about 200 fewer yards from scrimmage.

He's only at 3.3 ypc, and in his last 6 games he has 43 carries for 121 yards, and only once over 50 yards from scrimmage in that time. Glad he made his money though.

The Alliance of American Football has announced their initial rosters. Saw a few ex-Pats on there:

Sterling Moore and Steve Beauharnais on the Arizona Hotshots
Xzavier Dickson and Matthew Wells on the Birmingham Iron
Anthony Johnson and Devin Lucien on the Memphis Express
Tre Jackson on the Orlando Apollos
Trevor Reilly and Sealver Siliga on the Salt Lake Stallions
Kenneth Farrow on the San Antonio Commanders
Damarius Travis on the San Diego Fleet

Probably missing a few PS guys.

Danny Amendola has been on quite a heater on Instagram over Olivia Culpo. I’ve had my heart broken, but not like Danny, he’s become Glenn Close scary.

Apparently Edelman posted on DA's instagram, saying, "Dude, get off instagram." We all need a friend like Edelman. But that piece of advice has since been deleted.

Culpo had bought DA a Rolex Daytona for his birthday, then made a post wearing it herself when he dumped her just before. That’s how you slag an ex on IG.

He wasn't a Patriot very long, and his tenure was not particularly impressive, but Albert Haynesworth is in kidney failure and needs a kidney transplant ASAP

Richard Seymour finishing 132nd out of ~8500 in the World Series of Poker Main Event is surely notable too. I tuned in near his high water mark, watched him fold an overpair to a double-ended straight draw to lose ~30 big blinds, and then get gradually ground down until he went out. Sorry Richard, I'm sure you'll be active again soon.

Was that the one where he took forever to decide?

Yeah. He had pocket 10s to a 65o BB, somebody raised, somebody raised more (can't find clip of it) and it ended up the two of them on the flop. Flop comes 248o I think, so a 7 or 3 makes the guy's straight. Seymour's at 68% to win, the betting pattern was a little weird, the BB pushes all-in for about 1/3 of Seymour's stack and after something like 4 minutes of thinking, he folds. He was above the average stack going into that hand, dropped below after it, and never really recovered much.

Seymour's messenger-esque bag was the subject of announcer speculation all night, so Rich Eisen got him to talk about that - and about how he prepares for "situational poker".
