Diva wide receivers like Odell Beckham are overrated and completely replaceable

first_imgIn the midst of the Odell Beckham drama, Colin doesn’t think the Giants shouldn’t deal with his headaches. They can win without him. Elite, diva wide receivers are the most overrated position in football.“The diva wide receiver. The game is up. The data is in. The analytics are proof. They simply don’t matter.” Vegas is disrespecting LeBron and the Cavs. LeBron owns the Warriors, and they have all the pressure this year, while LeBron has none for the first time in his career. And, he owns Golden State.“For the first time in LeBron’s career, no pressure. The pressure is all on Golden State.” Texas plays Oklahoma this week and Colin is rooting for Charlie Strong. He loves when traditional powers matter. But, Strong still hasn’t turned around Texas in year 3, when most elite coaches only need 2 years. The biggest problem for Strong is that he’s a defensive coach and can’t get the defense right. It doesn’t feel like he is a fit.It turns out that the guy who dumped the beer on an Orioles outfielder in Totronto was a media member. Colin is sick of political and sports media getting into the rooting business.  What happened to journalistic objectivity?Nebraska football is dead and they’re not coming back. Nothing against Nebraska, but it’s hard to get elite players and coaches to come to Lincoln with so many options nationally.
