    Thursday’s 6-pack:
    NFL leaders in receiving yardage:
    579— Davante Adams, GB
    548— Deebo Samuel, SF
    523— Cooper Kupp, Rams
    516— Tyreek Hill, KC
    471— Mike Williams, LAC
    462— Justin Jefferson, Minn

    Quote of the Day
    “I haven’t made that decision yet, certainly. I think just like any position, I think we’ll look at the game plan versus TCU, I’ll continue to evaluate these guys as they practice and go with who helps us the most. Certainly, had really good contributions from both of them last week to help us win that game and need that as we go forward. We’ve got two guys in the room that are really good players that we can win with.”
    Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley, not announcing who his starting QB will be Saturday

    Thursday’s quiz
    What did team Wayne Gretzky finish his NHL career with?

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Jim Mora Jr was coach of the Seattle Seahawks before Pete Carroll.

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Bill Belichick was the last coach of the old Cleveland Browns, before they moved to Baltimore and became the Ravens; Ted Marchibroda was first coach of the Ravens.

    ***********************************

    Thursday’s Den: Doing some thinking out loud…….

    13) Sometimes not getting what you want is a blessing.

    Flash back to Week 11 of 2016, Rams were 4-5 when they gave rookie QB Jared Goff his first NFL start; they played Miami at home that day. Leading 10-0 with 5:00 to play, Rams screwed up the end of the game and lost, 14-10. They wouldn’t win another game the rest of the year.

    At that point, Rams hadn’t had a winning season since 2003; I was really mad after that game, mostly mad at myself for rooting for a team that was so incredibly inept- they fired the coach about a month later.

    Had the Rams won that game against Miami, they would’ve been 5-5 and on an uptick; they probably would’ve gone at least 2-4 the rest of the way. Owner Stan Kroenke has said that if the Rams finished 7-9 that year, he wouldn’t have fired the coach. He said it.

    My point is this; hiring Sean McVay is the best thing to happen to the Rams since Kurt Warner led the Greatest Show on Turf, but McVay would most likely be coaching another team had the Rams won that game against Miami.

    Sometimes in the long run, losing isn’t so horrible. Sometimes.

    12) From Chris Fallica of ESPN: This is the first time since October 12, 2014 that Alabama, Clemson or Ohio State are all outside the AP Top 4.

    The Top 4 that week in 2014 was Mississippi State, Florida State, Ole Miss and Baylor.

    11) In their last three games, Buffalo Bills are +11 in turnovers; in three of their last four games, they played against a backup QB.

    10) Texas-El Paso’s football team is 5-1 this season; the previous four years combined the Miners were 5-39, so great coaching job by Dana Dimel. Getting to a bowl game this season would be a terrific accomplishment for UTEP.

    9) NFC East teams are 6-1 ATS in non-divisional road games; they’re 1-6 ATS in non-divisional home games.

    8) Other NFL trends:
    — NFC North teams are 5-1 ATS in non-divisional home games.
    — AFC South teams are 5-s ATS as non-divisional road underdogs.
    — AFC West teams are 3-6 ATS in non-divisional home games.

    7) Matthew Kerr, son of Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, is one of the writers on the Apple TV show, Ted Lasso.

    6) Texas Longhorns had 90 recruits in Dallas Saturday for the Oklahoma game; seeing how Texas lost 54-48, hopefully lot of those kids play defense.

    5) From the category of “great wastes of money” are the cardboard postcards local politicians mail out when they’re campaigning. Does anyone read these? Mailman should save me some time and just slide them into my garbage can, instead of the mailbox.

    4) San Francisco Giants have 13 coaches, a huge coaching staff.

    3) I’ve never heard of St Thomas (MN) College before, but they’re making a big jump in hoops, from Division III to Division I. Turns out the Tommies got thrown out of their D-III league for being too dominant, so they’re making a huge leap into the Summit League, which last year was #16-ranked league in country, right in middle nationally.

    2) United Airlines had 2,000 openings for flight attendants; they got 20,000 applications for those jobs. Good to see people wanting to get back to work.

    1) Nate Silver is a writer, a very smart person who analyzes baseball and politics; he also plays poker- he finished 2nd recently in a tournament at the World Series of Poker, which is going on now in Las Vegas, instead of its usual summer date.

    Silver cashed in $154,000 for that second place finish; its good to be smart.

    7,570,000— Dan Mullen, Florida

    Quote of the Day
    “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
    Mark Twain

    Friday’s quiz
    Which major league team drafted Tom Brady in 1995, as a catcher?

    Thursday’s quiz
    Wayne Gretzky finished his NHL career with the New York Rangers.

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Jim Mora Jr was coach of the Seattle Seahawks before Pete Carroll.

    **********************************

    Friday’s Den: Random stuff with weekend here…….

    13) Flash back to Week 11 of 2016, Rams were 4-5 when they gave rookie QB Jared Goff his first NFL start; they played Miami at home that day. Leading 10-0 with 5:00 to play, Rams screwed up the end of the game and lost, 14-10. They wouldn’t win another game the rest of the year.

    At that point, Rams hadn’t had a winning season since 2003; I was really mad after that game, mostly mad at myself for rooting for a team that was so incredibly inept- they fired the coach about a month later.

    Had the Rams won that game against Miami, they would’ve been 5-5 and on an uptick; they probably would’ve gone at least 2-4 the rest of the way. Owner Stan Kroenke has said that if the Rams finished 7-9 that year, he wouldn’t have fired the coach. He said it.

    My point is this; hiring Sean McVay is the best thing to happen to the Rams since Kurt Warner led the Greatest Show on Turf, but McVay would most likely be coaching another team had the Rams won that game against Miami.

    Sometimes in the long run, losing isn’t so horrible. Sometimes.

    12) Bucs 28, Eagles 22:
    — First two drives: 19 plays, 150 yards, 14 points.
    — Tampa averaged 7.1 yards/pass attempt, Philly 4.0.
    — Bucs were 7-13 on 3rd down, Eagles 3-10.

    — Hurts ran ball 10 times for 44 yards, completed only 12-26 passes.
    — RB Sanders ran ball only nine times, but for 56 yards.
    — Bucs 73 plays, 399 yards; Eagles 47 plays, 213 yards.

    11) Dodgers 2, Giants 1:
    — Bellinger’s hit in 9th inning drove in winning run.
    — Webb allowed one run in 7 IP for Giants.
    — Scherzer closed it out for his first career save.

    10) St Louis Cardinals surprisingly fired manager Mike Shildt Thursday; they said it was “philosophical differences”. Being a big league skipper ain’t as much fun as it used to be. Shildt went 252-199 in regular season games with St Louis, 4-9 in playoff games.

    Tony LaRussa was 93-69 in Chicago this season, lost in playoffs to Houston; he’ll be back next with the White Sox next season.

    They say if Aaron Boone returns in the Bronx next year, his coaching staff will be picked by the front office, not by Boone. They already fired the batting coach and 3rd base coach.

    9) In college football, Missouri/New Mexico are both 0-6 ATS. Clemson/Kansas are 0-5.

    8) Wild Card weekend in the NFL has four games; one of those games will on Monday night, an ESPN game. Don’t even think about putting that game in a cold weather city. Games with poor weather get better TV ratings, but this is a playoff game. Put it in warm weather or a dome.

    7) South Alabama 41, Georgia Southern 14— Jaguars’ QB Scott Bentley is playing his 6th year of college football; he played 34 games at South Carolina, five at Utah, and is now in the Sun Belt with the 4-2 Jaguars, who got their first conference win here.

    Bentley threw for 389 TD’s, three TD’s in this game.

    6) Jacksonville Jaguars still haven’t made a field goal this season, they’re 0-5. Jaguars are first team in Super Bowl era (since 1966) not to have a FG in their first five games.

    5) Some of the better games in the ACC/Big 14 basketball challenge, Nov 29-Dec 1st:
    — Iowa @ Virginia
    — Duke @ Ohio State
    — Michigan @ North Carolina
    — Louisville @ Michigan State

    4) It wasn’t that game, but I was watching another NBA preseason game and the TV people are discussing who will win the MVP this year— who cares ?!?!?! It was freakin’ October 13, let the season begin at least before you speculate on who the MVP will be.

    3) 33-year old point guard Ish Smith played college ball at Wake Forest; I hope he writes a book someday- he’s played for lot of teams. Here is his career path:

    2010-11: Houston/Memphis
    2011-12: Golden State/Orlando
    2012-13: Orlando/Milwaukee
    2013-14: Phoenix
    2014-15: Oklahoma City/Philly
    2015-16: Philly/New Orleans
    2016-19: Detroit
    2019-21: Washington
    2012-22: Charlotte

    He must have some great stories to tell; 2,555 assists, 5,055 points. Quite a career.

    2) Dallas 127, Charlotte 59— I know this was an exhibition game, I know the score doesn’t matter, but this might’ve been the worst basketball game I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen a lot of basketball games.

    Not sure what the Hornets were doing, but they weren’t competing, not even close. Guys try harder in pickup games on the playground.

    1) During the pandemic, when there were no ballgames going on and I was doing movie lists and stuff like that in this space, it bugged me that one day, I’d realize that I left a great movie off my list. Well…….

    I’m flipping channels the other night and the 1989 movie Cousins is on; Ted Danson, Isabella Rosselini, Lloyd Bridges. Loved this movie when it came out, but hadn’t seen it in almost 30 years and it never got on one of my lists, when it belongs there.

    William Peterson is also in the movie; he plays Gil Grissom on CSI, so this movie had two of the three actors who would later play the head of the crime lab on CSI, one of my favorite TV shows.

    Anyway, Cousins is on HBOMax now, if you want to catch up with it. It is worth your time.

    Quote of the Day
    “When you deal with the things up there (New England), it’s a little bit strenuous and nobody likes it in the locker room. That’s to be honest — nobody. Nobody likes it!”
    Former NFL DB Darrelle Revis, who won a Super Bowl in his one year with the Patriots

    Saturday’s quiz
    In 1976, the ABA folded, and four teams were absorbed into the NBA. Which four?

    Friday’s quiz
    Montreal Expos drafted Tom Brady in 1995, as a catcher.

    Thursday’s quiz
    Wayne Gretzky finished his NHL career with the New York Rangers.

    *******************************

    Saturday’s Den: Wrapping up a busy Friday

    13) Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury tested positive for COVID, will miss Sunday’s game in Cleveland.

    Cardinals also traded a 5th-round pick and a cornerback to Philly for TE Zach Ertz, who caught a TD pass for the Eagles Thursday night. Ertz isn’t eligible to play for Arizona Sunday.

    12) Houston 5, Boston 4:
    — Jose Altuve hit his 20th career postseason home run.
    — Kike Hernandez has 13 hits in his last four games.
    — Both teams used eight pitchers.
    — Astros lead series, 1-0.

    11) Boston’s JD Martinez has knocked in 100+ runs four times in his career; he knocked in 99 runs this year, hitting a league-high 42 doubles. Very good hitter.

    Back in 2013, Martinez played for an Astros team that went 51-111; they were terrible. Houston released him in spring training the next year, flat out released him, and he went to Detroit, where his career began to blossom.

    How does a team that loses 111 games release a hitter who winds up being this good? Houston wound up making the playoffs two years later, beginning their great run, but they also had Kike Hernandez in 2014, and traded him to Miami, not getting much in return.

    10) Dodgers don’t have home field edge in the NLCS, but they’re still -190 to win the series, the biggest favorite in an LCS without the home field advantage since the ’86 Mets were -175 over Houston in 1986. Mets won in six games that year.

    9) 42.7% of runs scored in the major leagues this season came via a home run, so basically, out of every seven runs that scored, three came via a home run.

    8) Clemson 17, Syracuse 14:
    — With 0:40 left, Syracuse tried a 47-yard FG, instead of going for it on 4th-and-1.
    — Clemson is 4-2; they’ve scored only 14.8 ppg in five I-A games.

    7) Oregon 24, California 17:
    — Ducks outscored Cal 14-0 over last 12:00 of game.
    — Oregon outgained Cal 459-409; Cal was +2 in turnovers.
    — Last four years, Cal is 11-1 ATS as a road underdog.

    6) Kentucky Wildcats are 8-3-1 ATS last dozen times they were a double digit underdog, like they are tomorrow between the hedges at Georgia.

    5) Aaron Rodgers became Green Bay’s starting QB in 2008; since then, Chicago Bears have started 16 different starting quarterbacks. Rodgers has missed 18 starts in 13+ seasons as the #1 guy in Green Bay.

    4) Thursday night in Los Angeles, Kings’ Anze Kopitar scored three goals, had two assists in the Kings’ 6-2 win over Las Vegas.

    Kopitar’s five points are tied for second in any players’ season opener (since 1966); back in 1990, Kevin Stevens had six points in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ season opener.

    3) San Diego State 19, San Jose State 13, OT
    — Neither team scored a touchdown in regulation.
    — Spartans outgained San Diego State, 340-240.
    — San Jose threw an awful INT in the end zone in the 2nd OT.
    — This game ended at 2:29am here in the east.

    2) Zion Williamson has a foot injury, will miss the start of the New Orleans Pelicans’ season. This is Williamson’s third year in the NBA; he played 89 of a possible 144 games (61.8%) in his first two seasons. Pelicans need him to play more; he’s scored 25.7 ppg when he’s been in there.

    1) Miami Dolphins’ QB Tua Tagovailoa will start for Miami Sunday, in their game against the Jaguars in London; Tagovailoa (ribs) hasn’t played since Week 2.

    Most teams that play in London have their bye week the next week, but the Dolphins go home and play the Falcons next week, against a Falcons team that has this week off after playing in London last week.
