According to the Associated Press, Mahomes and the three other people were stepping from a vehicle on a home’s driveway outside Tyler, Texas, when a suspect approached. He gestured he had a handgun in his waistband and took unspecified items from the victims before speeding away, the Smith County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office said Monday.
Well, maybe miracle is overstating it. How about this: Another Draft Day Coincidence! ….
Flashback to last season’s Sun Bowl, North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky led the Tar Heels to a touchdown with 1:09 left in the game to close Stanford’s lead to two points (25-23). His attempt to run in the two-point conversion failed. Stanford went on to win the game.
Trubisky was 23 of 39 for 280 yards with two touchdowns passing. But he also had two interceptions and two sacks. One of those sacks came on the Tar Heels’ next-to-last drive, which was forced UNC to punt, down 25-17 when it desperately needed to maintain control the ball. The defender who got the sack was Stanford’s Solomon Thomas.
Last week, San Francisco traded the No. 2 pick to Chicago, which stunned many draft followers — and even some of its own fans — by picking Trubisky. And who did the 49ers pick at No. 3? Yep, Thomas.
Maybe the 49ers saw something they liked in the game film.
“This is not the endorsement deal you are looking for.”
In Tim Tebow’s new book “Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms,” (phew! what a title!) the celebrated quarterback claims a conversation with New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick cost him a $1 million endorsement deal.
Well, it’s not like he has won Super Bowl yet, right?
To any one in the Tampa area, be on the lookout in September for a half-naked guy walking around Raymond James Stadium. He’ll be wearing a Cam Newton jersey and holding a sign that says ‘Auburn rules over Florida.’ If you see him, be sure to get a selfie.
( the last two paragraphs from the “senior analyst” are awesome: “Let’s ask Denver Broncos fans if they would like to trade Tebow for Newton straight up. They would laugh in your face. Football fans know even if the experts have no clue. We can spot a fraud when we see one.
In five years, when Tebow is leading Denver into the playoffs and Cam Newton is riding someone’s bench, remember this article.”)
