Hoping this post finds you well. Let’s see what random stuff we can’t speak on today...Who ya taking, armchair GM’s? Sunday Night Football on NBC dropped this tweet last night and I thought it’d spark some good discussion. If you were putting a squad together, which of these four youngsters are you making the keystone of your offense. Mitchell Trubisky’s name popped up as a common response (from fans), as well. Should Wentz be in this mix? I still think there are many that would rather have Dak than Goff. Who’s your guy? The AAF kicks off on Saturday night. You watching? Football is back! Sort of. If you love football Aaron Donald Jersey , I imagine you’ll tune in to at least see how tonight’s Alliance of American Football games play out. Here’s the schedule for the opening weekend: Saturday, 8:00 p.m. ET: Atlanta Legends at Orlando Apollos – CBSSaturday, 8:00 p.m. ET: San Diego Fleet at San Antonio Commanders – CBSSunday, 4:00 p.m. ET: Memphis Express at Birmingham Iron – CBS Sports NetworkSunday, 8:00 p.m. ET: Salt Lake Stallions at Arizona Hotshots – NFL NetworkThere appear to be several former Rams sprinkled throughout the league. Heck, the San Diego Fleet are coached by Mike Martz, have a wide receivers coach in Az-Zahir Hakim C.J. Anderson Jersey , and legendary Rams’ receiver Nelson Spruce will undoubtedly be out there shredding the Commanders’ defense. Former Rams’ running backs Zac Stacy and Aaron Green are also in the league, as is Super Bowl winning QB Garrett Gilbert! DEMETRIUS RHANEY! Surely there are many others. You tuning in? Rooting for any team in particular? Simply hoping it’s watchable? Saturday roundball: Duke at UVAYou get down on college basketball? Today’s premier matchup is No. 3 Duke at No. 2 UVA. Duke escaped with a 2-point victory when these teams met at Cameron Indoor a few weeks ago, but the Cavaliers will have an opportunity to even the score at home this afternoon (6pm ET, ESPN). Who ya got? If you could pick one former Ram to join the 2019 squad...Let’s say pre-Greatest Show on Turf...which former Rams’ player - St. Louis, Los Angeles, Cleveland(?) - would you add to the 2019 roster to help get them the Lombardi that so narrowly escaped them this season? Grammy’s prediction(s) anyone? Looks like the Grammy’s are on CBS tomorrow night (Feb. 10). I’m not much for award shows, but I do get down on all types of music. Any predictions for Album of the Year? INVASION OF PRIVACY - Cardi B BY THE WAY Samson Ebukam Jersey , I FORGIVE YOU - Brandi Carlile SCORPION - DrakeH.E.R. - H.E.R.BEERBONGS & BENTLEYS - Post MaloneDIRTY COMPUTER - Janelle Mon谩e GOLDEN HOUR - Kacey MusgravesBLACK PANTHER: THE ALBUM (Various Artists)Tell me something goodGimme some good news. Anything really awesome happen in your life recently? It makes plenty of sense to continue to stage the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, but the league will make plenty of dollars to move it.One thing that became clear based on conversations with people of power and influence in Indianapolis last week is that the NFL seems determined to treat the Combine like the post-Radio City draft, moving it from city to city in order to generate maximum buzz and, more importantly, maximum revenue. Although Indianapolis seems to be the perfect location for the event, its presence causes a ripple in comparison to what it could do if brought to a different city and then a different city and then a different city. And the NFL knows it.The first step could be, as Peter King explained in his column Cooper Kupp Jersey , moving some of the Combine workouts to prime time, as soon as next year. And those workouts may not be in the same city as the physicals; King reports that one possibility would include conducting the medical examinations in Indianapolis and then having the on-field workouts and interviews elsewhere, like L.A.As King notes, the coaches and scouts won’t like it. But the owners won’t care. There’s cash to be grabbed, and the changes would apply equally to all teams.At some point, though, the process inescapably morphs from a job interview into a reality show John Johnson Jersey , with participants who get paid nothing to participate. And someone eventually needs to stand up for the kids and get them something in exchange for the money that their efforts are generating.To those who will say that consideration for a career as an NFL player should be enough, the players will be considered regardless of whether they participate in the Combine — and the best players will be drafted in the best spots. Besides, what other job interview becomes a TV show that only the producers profit from?So as the league prepares to make the Combine a bigger deal, a bigger deal needs to be made for fair compensation for the guys who have allowed it to become what it is.
