Former NFL exec and current CBS Sports pregame analyst Amy Trask took a moment of the spotlight Sunday to address ongoing concerns over the Redskins team name.
Few predicted Pat White making the Redskins roster over the weekend, outside of Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Hopefully that’s where the accuracy of his 2013 predictions ends, because he’s officially gone on-record in picking the Cowboys to win the NFC East.
Jim Rome of CBS Sports had some words for RGIII following his latest “Operation Patience” tweet. He called out Griffin for liking the “attention and the hero worship that he gets from coming back” from his knee injury, which Rome says he “won’t shut up about.”
CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora has defended RGIII on more than one account recently, but admits, “he’s starting to lose me a little bit” after Griffin publicly opposed Mike Shanahan’s plan for his return. He explained why on The Junkies Thursday morning.
RGIII has one of the most explosive seasons the NFL has ever seen by a rookie quarterback, and now the Redskins are faced with the unenviable task of finding the middle ground between doing what works and overrunning Griffin to the point of re-injury.
The later rounds of the NFL Draft provide plenty of guys the second chance they need to right the wrongs of their college years, like Redskins’ 6th round pick Bacarri Rambo, who Tony Barnhart of CBS Sports said “Three years ago I didn’t think we’d be talking about Bacarri Rambo playing in the NFL.”
ESPN ran through it’s annual motion of patting itself on the back with the ESPY awards Wednesday night, held on the one day every year there’s nothing else going on in sports, and Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is sick of it.
Twitter is a dangerous place for someone with a quick trigger finger and a massive following, and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports became its latest victim on Sunday, when he accidentally ended a tweet with a hashtag completely unrelated to the sport he covers … or any sport.
The days of an NFL team in London are fast approaching, and a team struggling to maintain its current fanbase in the U.S., like the Jacksonville Jaguars for instance, could be ripe for a move as soon as the next five to seven years, if you’re to believe Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
“You can keep writing blogs and deluding yourself and thinking people will buy in,” Jason La Canfora said of Caps owner Ted Leonsis, in an utter verbal beating he unleashed on the entire Washington Capitals organization. One-by-one, La Canfora picked apart each flaw no one seems to want to mention.
