This will be the last time I speak of it. Not just today but for the future as well. You should never say never, but never. OK ? Anyone else have a question about an academic post? There isn’t a single backer from college with a big enough check. “

Former Washington workers push for investigation
NFL owners gathered in New York on Tuesday, and former Washington team employees were on hand to lobby for the league to release the findings of an investigation into the club. These former employees personally delivered a letter to the five owners of the NFL Social Justice Task Force (Gayle Benson (Saints), Michael Bidwill (Cardinals), Arthur Blank (Falcons), Jimmy Haslam (Browns) and Shahid Khan (Jaguars)).
The letter was signed by 12 former employees and asked those owners to lobby for the league to release the information.
“Now is the time for the NFL to change course and take action to speak out against the racist, sexist and homophobic behavior of the past. The first step in doing this is transparency. The NFL must make public the findings of the WFT investigation. We ask you to demand that the NFL make the results public. We ask you to do the right thing. “
Reporters asked Jets owner Woody Johnson if the information should be made public. He said “it’s something between the league and the different people involved in it” and the owners were “here for the football”. There have been other calls for the results to be made public, but the NFL doesn’t seem ready to go that route.
In front of the press, Roger Goodell quickly disappointed them. The NFL boss announced that the investigation will not be made public, in particular to preserve the anonymity of those who collaborated. The Commissioner also considered that Dan Snyder and the franchise in Washington “were held responsible” for their actions, including a fine, and the fact that Snyder had not been involved in the life of the franchise for four months.
Washington is still looking for its quarterback of the future
In the absence of Ryan Fitzpatrick, it is Taylor Heinicke who leads the attack on Washington. But the latter does not seem to be the solution for the future. During an interview on 106.7 The Fan, Ron Rivera was asked about how often he looks for his future quarterback franchise.
” Constantly. It’s something you think about all the time. Until you find it, you keep looking. “
Since Kirk Cousins left after the 2017 season, no pitcher has started all games for Washington in a season. After the failure of Dwayne Haskins, Washington will probably have to turn to the draft again to find the quarterback who can take him to the top.
Ed Reed advises Lamar Jackson to change his game
One of the greatest players in Ravens history wants Lamar Jackson to stay healthy long enough to carve out a special place for himself in NFL history. Safety Hall of Famer Ed Reed told TheRinger.com’s Kevin Clark that he advises Lamar Jackson to be careful about the way he plays, so he can stay healthy long enough to have a career as that of Tom Brady.
“I give Lamar constructive criticism because I want Lamar to play 20 years like Tom Brady. I don’t want to see Lamar suffer a catastrophic injury like the quarterbacks of our past. I want him to win a championship before he becomes like Cam Newton. As strong as Cam was, the contacts affected him. These blows caught up with him. It affects your throw. A quarterback must throw the ball. I’ve always said this and I stand by it: Great quarterbacks don’t take punches. “
Lamar Jackson has so far managed to stay fairly healthy despite very heavy use of the racing game. But if the 2019 MVP is to keep playing for a decade or two, he’s probably going to need to calm down a bit on that point.
Aaron Rodgers not worried about Davante Adams absence
The Packers placed Davante Adams (WR) on the COVID-19 roster on Monday, meaning Aaron Rodgers’ preferred target may not play against the Cardinals. The quarterback held his weekly press conference on Tuesday, and said he hoped the test would turn out to be a false positive because of what Adams means for the team. But the Packers have had to play without him in recent years.
“We’re not a better team without him for sure. But look at each of these games (without Admas), we’ll find a way, ”Rodgers said.
While Adams’ absence will inevitably result in game plan changes, it has worked in the past. Their record is 6 wins and no losses without Davante Adams, which Rodgers says is due to other players showing up in his absence.
Patrick Chung arrested for domestic violence
Former Patriots safety Patrick Chung was arrested Monday in Massachusetts for domestic violence and vandalism. TMZ Sports reports that the prosecutor formally charged Chung on Tuesday, and that he was due in court. No details of the allegations have been released, but Chung’s official charge is: bodily harm to a member of the family / household.
Chung had previously been charged with possession of cocaine in 2019, but had pleaded guilty to avoiding jail. It is not known whether this arrest is a violation of the plea agreement.
