    Tuesday’s 6-pack
    Six interesting college football spreads:
    — Virginia Tech @ West Virginia (-3)
    — Cincinnati (-3.5) @ Indiana
    — Minnesota @ Colorado (-2)
    — USC (-8.5) @ Washington State
    — Mississippi State (-3) @ Memphis
    — Auburn @ Penn State (-6)

    Quote of the Day
    “I want to be exceptionally clear: our university and its leadership are committed to winning national championships and restoring USC football to glory.”
    USC AD Mike Bohn, who is either clueless or a puppet for rich boosters

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders have won three Super Bowls; John Madden won the first one. What coach won the other two?

    Monday’s quiz
    Mike Ditka, Lovie Smith are head coaches who led the Chicago Bears to a Super Bowl.

    Sunday’s quiz
    Davey Johnson has most wins as a manager in New York Mets’ history.

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

    Tuesday’s Den: Nobody asked me, but……

    13) Raiders 33, Ravens 27 OT
    — Carr tossed a 31-yard TD pass in OT to end the game.
    — Raiders kicked FG in last 0:05 of each half.
    — Las Vegas threw for 409 yards, survived two red zone turnovers.
    — Over is 7-1-1 in Raider home games since they moved to Las Vegas.

    — Jackson’s fumble in OT set up the winning score.
    — Baltimore averaged 5.6 yards/rush; Jackson ran for 86 yards.
    — Ravens converted only 3-12 third down plays.
    — Raiders ran 80 plays from scrimmage, Baltimore 67.

    12) Mariners 5, Red Sox 4:
    — Mitch Haniger’s 3-run HR in 7th was difference.
    — Seattle is only two games out of last Wild Card spot.

    11) When I think about Week 1 of any NFL season, “overreaction” is the word most often used. It is one game out of 17, but then today I heard that in college football, USC fired Clay Helton after they lost to Stanford Saturday. Talk about overreaction!!!!

    USC was 46-24 under Helton; lot of college football programs are run by delusional rich people who have no patience- they think their school should win the national title every other year, if not more often. Texas fired Tom Herman and hired a guy who had previously been fired for showing up drunk, but hey, the guy worked for Nick Saban after that, so maybe…….

    Hard to feel too sorry for Helton; his buyout is in the $12M range, but still…….

    10) All four teams in AFC West, all four in NFC West won this weekend; NFC North went 0-4 this weekend.

    9) Really good rule change by the NFL: if the replay official sees an obviously wrong call, he can beep in and change the call, without the team having to challenge the call.

    8) Washington QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is out 6-8 weeks with a hip injury; Taylor Heinicke is the new starter. Washington signed QB Kyle Shurmur to the practice squad Monday; his dad is the offensive coordinator for the Broncos.

    7) New Orleans Saints are living/practicing in the Dallas area this week; there’s a chance that if things go well in New Orleans as far as power being restored, Saints could play their Week 4 game with the Giants in the Superdome. Their next home game after that isn’t until Week 8.

    6) Arkansas Razorbacks are in college football’s top 25 for first time since 2016.

    5) San Francisco Giants clinched a playoff spot Monday night, the first team to clinch a spot in this year’s postseason. Quite a run they’re on.

    4) Last QB drafted #1 in the NFL Draft to win his first NFL start?

    David Carr, for Houston in 2002.

    3) 14 different New York Mets have homered three times in one games: Yoenis Cespedes is the only Met who did it twice.

    When DH comes back to the National League next year, I wonder if Cespedes will re-surface.

    2) I’m flipping around the TV late at night and I stumble across Addams Family re-runs; it was on TV way back in the 60’s when I was 5-6 years old— loved that show, especially Cousin Itt and Thing.

    Funny thing is, my mother never let me watch the Three Stooges, for whatever reason, but she was OK with me watching the Addams Family, which was 1,000 times weirder. Some of the stuff in that show is downright strange.

    Go figure.

    1) 49ers/Bears both used their rookie QB’s in short yardage situations Sunday; only a matter of time before both of them are starting.

    Trey Lance’s situation is odd; he only played one college game last year; he came from a I-AA program. He just doesn’t have a lot of experience. Will be an interesting decision for Shanahan, when to throw the rookie QB into the fire.

    Wednesday’s 6-pack
    NFL leaders in receiving yardage:
    197— Tyreek Hill, KC
    189— Deebo Samuel, SF
    139— Amari Cooper, Dal
    132— Brandin Cooks, Hst
    121— Antonio Brown, TB
    113— Sterling Shepherd, NYG

    Quote of the Day
    “Sometimes the things that can’t be counted, count the most.”
    Buzz Williams

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Which QB holds the Cincinnati Bengals’ career record for passing yards?
    Hint: He started in a Super Bowl

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders have won three Super Bowls; John Madden won the first one. Tom Flores won the other two.

    Monday’s quiz
    Mike Ditka, Lovie Smith are head coaches who led the Chicago Bears to a Super Bowl.

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

    Wednesday’s Den: Mid-week musings…….

    13) There were nine outright wins by underdogs in Week 1 of the NFL, the most in any Week 1 since 1983.

    12) NFL home favorites went 2-6 ATS in non-divisional games.

    11) Before Monday night, Baltimore Ravens had won 98 games in a row when they led by 14+ points; last time they had lost was in 2004 against the Bengals, when they lost 27-26 after leading 23-3.

    10) Five assistant coaches for the New Orleans Saints tested positive for COVID; their team now has stricter protocols this week, lot like last year’s.

    9) USC’s last three football coaches were all fired during a season; does that make it harder for them to hire a top-flight candidate? If your expectations dwarf the reality of their situation, is it that great a job?

    Alabama/Clemson are dominating the sport right now, but schools like USC, Texas have the delusional idea that they should be dominating the sport. Only so much room at the top.

    8) Umpire Junior Valentine was working first base Monday night in New York, when an errant throw drilled him in the side of the face, pretty close to his right eye. He’s a tough guy; he worked the plate Tuesday night, with a very large bruise on his face.

    7) Was listening to the Minnesota Twins’ TV broadcast Tuesday; Justin Morneau was talking about, while he was in Class A ball, the Twins had a rule that every player who gets two strikes on them had to choke up for the rest of the at-bat. He kept doing it most of his career.

    Once a batter gets two strikes on him this year, his batting average is .166.

    6) Twins weren’t too happy with the umpires in their extra-inning loss in New York Monday afternoon; they must’ve been thrilled when those four umps boarded the team flight back to Minnesota. Same crew is working the Twins-Indians series this week.

    5) San Diego Padres were 68-58 when they fired pitching coach Larry Rothschild; they’re 6-12 since they fired him. Not good.

    4) Jake Woodford pitched for the Cardinals Tuesday night, against the Mets. One of the Mets’ best hitters is Pete Alonso; Woodford and Alonso were high school teammates in Tampa.

    3) Atlanta (76-67) is the only NL East team over .500; Phillies are 72-72.

    2) RIP to the great comedian Norm MacDonald, who passed away from cancer at age 61. There isn’t enough laughter in our world today; he was a funny guy.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they do not):
    NL: Braves, Brewers, Giants. Wild Card: St Louis @ Los Angeles
    AL: Rays, White Sox, Astros. Wild Card: 3-way playoff (Tor-NY-Bos)

    Quote of the Day
    “The only thing an old man can tell a young man is that it goes fast, real fast, and if you’re not careful it is too late. Of course, the young man will never understand this truth.”

    Thursday’s quiz
    Chargers have played in one Super Bowl; who was their QB that day?

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Ken Anderson holds the Cincinnati Bengals’ career record for passing yards.

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders have won three Super Bowls; John Madden won the first one. Tom Flores won the other two.

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

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

    13) Red Sox 9, Mariners 4 (10)— Last two days, Boston outscored Seattle 12-3 in last two innings, pulling out a pair of wins that pushed the Mariners four games out of playoff chase.

    12) Atlanta Braves have played in 11 games this season that were tied after eight innings; they lost 10 of them, but somehow are still in first place in NL East.

    11) Cubs aren’t going anywhere this year; it’ll be interesting to see the team they put on the field next year. On July 18, they acquired 1B Frank Schwindel on waivers from the A’s; the guy has hit .361 in 39 games for Chicago, with a 1.075 OPS. He’s been awesome.

    10) Cardinals 11, Mets 4— St Louis scored 25 runs in their 3-game sweep of the Mets; they’ve won five in row overall, are now in the 2nd Wild Card slot, but by a narrow margin.

    9) Pirates 5, Reds 4— Cincinnati has lost four in row, 12 of last 16 games, as the playoffs begin to slip away. They’re 11-16 since the last time LF Jesse Winker played.

    8) Marlins 8, Nationals 6— Jesus Sanchez homered twice, including a 2-run blast during a 4-run ninth inning. Marlins are two games ahead of Washington in the race to avoid the cellar in the NL East.

    7) New England hasn’t been 0-2 since 2001; Packers haven’t been 0-2 since 2006, Dallas hasn’t been 0-2 since 2010.

    6) Last six times Denver Broncos won their season opener, they also won in Week 2.

    5) Cowboys’ DE DeMarcus Lawrence broke his foot, is out 6-8 weeks; he is Dallas’ best defensive player.

    4) Mike Trout haas’t played since May 17; he has an injured calf. Imagine the fantasy teams that have gone down the drain this year because he hasn’t played?

    3) In 1980 the Oakland A’s had three different starting pitchers throw 14-inning complete games, because their bullpen sucked and their manager (Billy Martin) didn’t give a rat’s ass about the future of the franchise. He just wanted to get re-hired by the Bronx Bombers.

    I was 20 that summer; 41 years later, the A’s bullpen is just as bad, and it has cost them dearly over the last month (10-18 in last 28 games) as playoff contention slips away. They play the Astros, Mariners mostly the rest of the way; they’ll have to score lot of runs to win more than they lose.

    PS From 1982 on, those starting pitchers that were overused in 1980 all had medical issues and the A’s felt into the trash can, thanks to a manager who put himself ahead of the team in 1980. After a 68-94 season in 1982, Martin jumped back to the Bronx. Good riddance.

    2) When college coaches recruit these days, you think they propose ways players can make $$$ off the new NIL rules? Would seem stupid if they didn’t; the QB at Alabama had an $800,000 deal before he threw a pass. Basketball especially, with smaller rosters; lot of money to be made.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they do not):
    NL: Braves, Brewers, Giants. Wild Card: St Louis @ Los Angeles
    AL: Rays, White Sox, Astros. Wild Card: 3-way playoff (Tor-NY-Bos)

    Quote of the Day
    “Coach Franklin talked to us yesterday, addressed the topic (of USC). I don’t think that it’s anything that we need to worry about. It’s something that is kind of out of our hands. We’re just gonna focus on Auburn and then go from there. We’re really excited about what we’ve got on table this week, so we’re not gonna let outside sources change our thought process.”
    Penn State QB Sean Clifford

    Friday’s quiz
    Rams have played in four Super Bowls; Kurt Warner started two of them. Who started the other two?

    Thursday’s quiz
    Chargers have played in one Super Bowl; Stan Humphries was their QB that day.

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Ken Anderson holds the Cincinnati Bengals’ career record for passing yards.

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

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

    13) I’ve been hoping this would happen; Thursday, NFL Films/HBO announced that Hard Knocks will have a regular season set of shows, centered on the Indianapolis Colts, starting in November. This will be 1,000 times better than the training camp version, providing HBO gets good access behind closed doors. Looking forward to it.

    12) Washington 30, Giants 29:
    — Hopkins kicked a 43-yard FG at the gun for the win.
    — Hopkins missed a 48-yard FG on previous play, but Giants were offsides.
    — Heinicke threw for 336 yards in only his second regular season start.
    — McLaurin caught 11 passes for 107 yards.

    — Giants scored 6 of last 7 times they had ball, but 5 of 6 scores were FG’s.
    — Jones threw for 249 yards, ran for 95 more, didn’t turn ball over.
    — Giants averaged 5.8 yards/rush; Jones is more of a threat with his feet than his arm.
    — Giants are 0-2 for the fifth year in a row.

    11) Active major leaguers who’ve played most games without ever playing in playoffs:
    — Kyle Seager, Seattle
    — Jean Segura, Philly
    — JT Realmuto, Philly

    10) Phillies 17, Cubs 8:
    — Chicago led this game 7-0 in 4th inning.
    — Phillies went 10-22 with runner in scoring position.

    9) Whoever finishes second in NL West will be in the one-game Wild Card thing, even though that team will finish miles ahead of their Wild Card opponent. Right now, the Dodgers are 17 games ahead of St Louis; that would be the Wild Card matchup, if it happened today.

    8) In 21 of the Seattle Mariners’ last 37 games, the winning run scored in the last three innings; they’ve played a ton of close games this season.

    7) Louisiana 49, Ohio U 14:
    — Game was only 28-14 after third quarter.
    — Total yardage; Louisiana won, 562-250
    — Montrell Johnson ran for 84 yards and four TD’s.

    6) Kris Bryant plays all three OF positions, he plays 3B, he’s even played some first base, but I’m wondering if he would hit better if he just played one position. His versatility will get him a huge contract this winter, but not sure it helps him be his most productive self.

    5) Pittsburgh Pirates have a bad record, but they’ve been spunky of late; Pirates are 4-0-1 in their last five home series.

    4) Las Vegas Raiders’ backup QB Marcus Mariota got hurt running the ball Monday night, is out for a few weeks. Nathan Peterman steps in to back up Derek Carr.

    3) Buffalo Sabres/Toronto Maple Leafs are going to play an outdoor hockey game in Hamilton, Ontario this winter; the outdoor games have proven to be very popular.

    2) Former Steelers’ QB Devlin Hodges was in Rams’ training camp this summer; this week he signed a 3-year deal with Ottawa in the CFL.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they do not):
    NL: Braves, Brewers, Giants. Wild Card: St Louis @ Los Angeles
    AL: Rays, White Sox, Astros. Wild Card: Boston @ Toronto
