We were getting ready to play golf and somebody said, ‘Coach, I don’t know if you remember this, but 10 years ago you told all of us that Koby was going to be a GM in the next 10 years.’ I don’t know what on earth made me give that bold prediction, but he was one of those guys that knows what he wants.
So somewhere, I guess in Lithuania, LaVar Ball is laughing. People are eating out his hands for no apparent reason. Other than he’s become like the Kardashian of the NBA or something and that Wholesale NFL Jerseys Free Shipping sells. That’s true in politics and entertainment and now sports. It doesn’t matter if there’s any substance involved with an issue. It’s just ‘Can we make it really interesting.’ For no apparent reason. There’s nothing interesting about that story. You know how many parents of my players have probably been at home thinking ‘Why isn’t he playing my kid.’ Yet we’re sticking a microphone in front of his face because apparently it gets ratings. I don’t know who cares, but people must care or ESPN wouldn’t be spending whatever they’re spending.
Reason for hope: The Eagles have been the best team all season. Their only losses entering Sunday (when they rested many starters in a home loss to Dallas) were road defeats in Kansas City and Seattle — hardly anything of which to be ashamed. Even at their worst, which they were against the Giants on defense in Week 15 and against the Raiders on offense in Week 16, they’ve managed to find ways to win. They are deep and talented on both sides of the ball and can play a variety of styles and still win.
Reason for concern: Don’t know if you’ve heard, but star quarterback Wholesale MLB Jerseys Carson Wentz tore his ACL in Week 14, and the Eagles are rolling into the playoffs with Nick Foles. While Foles looked great in his first game, he doesn’t offer Wentz’s ability to make chicken salad on third and fourth downs. That was a key element of what made Philadelphia different from the other NFC contenders all season, and without it they may be just one of several very good teams in the NFC field.
