Jerry Jones Can Say Whatever He Wants About Zeke Elliott, Because He’s Always Had His Back

Kevin Kinkead - August 21, 2019

The Jerry Jones and Zeke Elliott pseudo-beef just got a little more serious.

It all started when Jerruh made his “Zeke who?” joke this past weekend, which drew the ire of Elliott’s camp, who said they felt the quip was “disrespectful.”

Jerry then responded to that nonsense ala Negan in The Walking Dead and decided to “shut that shit down” with this comment:

Carli Lloyd Banging Out Field Goals from Way Downtown

Kevin Kinkead - August 21, 2019

World champion and Delran, New Jersey native Carli Lloyd stopped by the Novacare Complex on Tuesday, where she proceeded to crush some field goals.

No double doinks here, just right down the middle with relative ease:

We’ve got people out here saying she would have been good from 55 yards. 

Here’s some more:

Tom Brady Asks for No Super Bowl 52 Jokes

Kevin Kinkead - August 20, 2019

Tom Brady doesn’t tweet very often, but today he shared a photo of himself about to catch a football with a fantasy football joke baked in.

I appreciate his self-awareness right here:

Sorry man, I gotta do it:

Cowboys Give Long Term Contract to Jaylon Smith

Kevin Kinkead - August 20, 2019

Not Ezekiel Elliott.

Not Dak Prescott.

Not Amari Cooper.

The Cowboys are extending linebacker Jaylon Smith:

Confirmed by Schefter and others.

It’s actually a great football story. Smith tore his ACL and MCL in college, forwent his senior season, and then sat out his rookie NFL year. He’s played 32 games since, logging 202 tackles, five sacks, and a pair of forced fumbles while earning a Pro Bowl nod.

No contract numbers out there yet, but we’ll see how this affects negotiations with the three big offensive players I listed above. Interesting contractual stuff going on in Dallas this summer.

Baker Mayfield Clarifies Daniel Jones Comments, But Not Before Getting Ripped by Colin Cowherd

Kevin Kinkead - August 20, 2019

Weird story taking another weird turn here.

Earlier we wrote about the GQ interview in which Baker Mayfield seemed to criticize the Giants’ selection of Duke quarterback Daniel Jones, saying, quote, “I cannot believe the Giants took Daniel Jones.”

Apparently it was a big misunderstanding, according to Mayfield, who clarified the comments on Instagram:

Okay then.

Jones didn’t have anything at all to say about the story:

So apparently there’s no problem at all here on either side, but Colin Cowherd, who can’t stand Mayfield, ripped him a new one before Mayfield’s response to the “click bait.”

See it here:

Doug Pederson Thinks the NFL is Heading Towards More Joint Practices and Fewer Preseason Games

Kevin Kinkead - August 20, 2019

Let’s be honest; most of these preseason press conferences have been incredibly boring.

But Doug P said something interesting today when asked about joint practices between NFL teams during the preseason.

Listen to this:

Baker Mayfield “Cannot Believe the Giants Took Daniel Jones”

Kevin Kinkead - August 20, 2019

This is a weird one. Didn’t expect to wake up today and see a “Baker Mayfield makes random comment about Daniel Jones” story, but here are.

The Browns quarterback recently did an interview with GQ in which he took a pseudo swipe at the Giants’ rookie, unless he was specifically talking about the Giants “reaching” for the Duke player at #6 overall.

Here’s the full section from the article:

Matt Lombardo Explains Two Advantages that Daniel Jones has Over Carson Wentz

Kevin Kinkead - August 20, 2019

Matt Lombardo used to cover the Eagles for NJ.com while hosting nights and I think some weekends on 97.5 the Fanatic. Now he’s on the Giants beat for the same website.

He’s got an article out today titled “I covered Giants’ Daniel Jones’ and Carson Wentz’s rookie training camps: Here’s the edge ‘Danny Dimes’ already has on Eagles’ franchise QB,” which is a sizzler. As soon as I saw that, I thought, “people are gonna read the headline and get bent out of shape.” Of course they won’t read the actual story itself, but that’s how things work in 2019. We get angry over the headline and then respond on social media.

First, I’m not sure how I feel about the ‘Danny Dimes’ nickname. It’s a good nickname, but I’m not sure we can hand out a special moniker to a guy who has yet to play a regular season game. That feels like a violation to me.

Second, the article, which I’ll pick up right here:

I believe that Jones has two advantages over where his rival down the New Jersey Turnpike began his career: He has more arm talent, and he’s fully healthy.

As a rookie, Wentz suffered a cracked rib that limited his practice reps during his rookie training camp, after Pederson left him in the game into the third quarter of the preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, taking a helmet to the chest while playing behind the reserve offensive line.

Yeah that’s fair. If Jones makes it through the preseason unscathed, then he’ll be at a better starting point health-wise than Carson was. He fractured a clavicle at Duke and apparently fought through some stuff that never made it to the injury report, but barely missed any time at all due to that combination of issues.
