Free Agency Week One Recap (Winners/Losers) 

WINNER – Mitch Trubisky – The Bears did a nice job building around their young quarterback by adding Allen Robinson, Trey Burton and Taylor Gabriel. They are going to run the Kansas City offense and now have the pieces in place to give Trubisky a genuine chance of succeeding.

WINNER – Kirk Cousins – Got all the money. Got it all guaranteed. Got to join a team who was 3 quarters from a Super Bowl last season.

LOSER – Arizona Cardinals – Going full Browns by paying the big bucks to Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon while letting Tyrann Mathieu walk.

LOSER – Miami Dolphins – They got rid of all their best players and added a Patriots role player (Danny Amendola) and a backup wide receiver (Albert Wilson). It seems “fixing the culture” is quickly becoming an excuse for Adam Gase’s team being a train wreck last year.

WINNER – Jacksonville Jaguars – Andrew Norwell was a huge addition that will help prop up Blake Bortles and their running game.

LOSER – New England Patriots – Lost their starting running back, starting left tackle and their top receiver in the playoffs last year. Allowed 41 points to Nick Foles in the Super Bowl.

WINNER – Cleveland Browns – Built themselves a credible offense before the NFL Draft even hit.

WINNER – New York Jets – The free agency period could have been a disaster after Kirk Cousins didn’t even bother visiting them but they picked themselves up off the mat to add the top corner available, a flier with upside at quarterback, arguably the top inside linebacker available, a starting center and a decent piece at running back. They got a shot to have a great offseason if they can get their QB in April.

Overrated Fast Food Chain Of The Week

Chipotle! 

Yes, I said it! This is replacement level Mexican food that his a history of getting people sick. Dos Toros is better. All of these places are better. I’m not buying the hype on these stale chips and watery salsa either!

What Do I Watch Now? 

Poop TalkA bunch of comedians talking about poop humor…nothing else to add except this is hysterical and worth your 90 minutes.

Who Do I Read Now?

The Water Knife, Pablo Bacigallupi  – A science fiction thriller set in the future where water is an insanely scare resource. The story follows multiple perspectives (migrant worker, journalist, mobster) in this new reality and it is written in a fast paced, highly entertaining manner.
