David Andrews’ one word to describe Bill Belichick is... funny?!

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Related: David Andrews on the Patriots’ personnel turnover: ‘That’s just part of this business’ When David Andrews was forced to spend the entire 2019 season on the sidelines following the discovery of blood clots in his lungs last August, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick praised him for staying involved in the operation as a de-facto assistant coach. This did not come as a surprise, though, considering that Andrews is a prototypical “Belichick Guy” — a player who earned his role through a do-your-job mentality. After arriving...

How it will eventually look like is anyone’s guess at this point in time, but teams appear to be confident that they will at least have some fans in the stands at one point in time. The New England Patriots, for example, recently sent a letter to their season-ticket holders reaffirming this belief. The letter itself,...

Film room: Who is the better Cowboys CB — Jourdan Lewis or Anthony Brown - John Owning, DMN The debate rages on as to who is the better corner, Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis. No matter who you think is the superior player, one thing that I’ve learned through this process is that the two are much closer than the other side’s fans will lead you to believe. Interestingly enough, I came into this exercise thinking that Brown would be the victor. However, after watching every single snap from the...

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ The 49ers’ quarterback falls outside the top-10 after Patrick Mahomes’ monster extension. The first thing I thought when I saw that the Kansas City Chiefs signed superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes to a 10-year $450 million extension was, “Damn, I wish I was a pro-athlete.” I’ll settle for being old, slow, and a member of the sports media for now. Mahomes’ $45 million average salary eclipses Seattle Seahawks’ QB Russell Wilson’s deal by $10 million a season, making him the highest paid player in the league by a country mile. San Francisco...
