So, again, the cyclical nature of football season has us… caught in the doldrums like Samuel Coleridge Taylors’ Ancient Mariner,
“All in a hot and copper sky,
The bloody Sun, at noon,
Right up above the mast did stand,
No bigger than the Moon.
Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.
Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink. ”
We are stuck, as Idle as a painted ship, upon a painted Ocean. Mickey Macc is ostensibly playing with himself after passing on Josh Allen, misreading Jalen Marshall, and losing Austin Sefarian Jenkins. To reiterate. No TE, No OL talent, and no slot guy. *** Next column, tomorrow folks.
And praying that Darnold > Allen. (or Petty, you know, that went to live near The Green-eyed Monster in Miami. *** As this is being edited, my next column is being written. FFS. MisMickeyMaccManagement????
So, that having been said, your humble scribe has been dedicated to getting his game back, while we wait for things to unfold. Human Interest segue –
So, it started with 8-ball. I’m a fair shot. So, I go to the local spot, to hang with the Gorgeous One, as she hits it after work, daily. Yesterday, as she is stepping outside to indulge we’re betting that I can drop a rack faster than she can smoke. I was averaging 4 and a half minutes. She, playing all coy, fawns. Then picks up a cue, and starts to drop balls with more authority than Jean Claude Van Damme on a coke binge.
Even made moreso, as Dimitrius was bringing me a water with lemon as DeGrom pissed of Goldschmidt by blowing a knee-high 98 mph pitch past him, getting him punched out looking. Hard to come by Mets action, in Columbus. After making sure T-GO, was cool, I hit NY Style Halal Gyro, where Sam served up a great dinner. I rolled up right in between two crowds…one on one immediate service is always a treat.
So, Back to the Jests. Where the hell are we in helping, either McCown or Duh’Arnold/ By the last account nowhere except a health cast off from the Patsies. Having done that, you would think a flyer on Luke Joeckel would be in orderAnd for what its worth, I am still on about the Jests leaving Sam Hubbard on the board in round three. And then Richie Incognito, becomes available, an Upgrade over either guard on the Jets starting roster…yet, no news there.
Mr. Johnson, if you are reading, remember, I wanted Josh Allen at 3, and Sam Hubbard in 3. If I am right, and Mickey Macc is wrong, you can hit me up on Twitter. I’d move back to the Garden State, during the season to help out.
I want to know what you think, C’mon enter the Tigers Den.
