GOOD DEED OF THE DAY

In honor of college kids going back to school, I want you to look on facebook find one of your teacher friends and click on their Amazon wishlist. They're all doing it this year, they all should be doing it this year except that education is the most important thing in the world for children and we as a society should care more to educate them, poor or rich, white, black or brown. We should be teaching them how to think and ask questions and let them make this world a better place since obviously we don't know how.

TEXANS BAD, DOLPHINS BAD

To continue the Clowney drama we touched on yesterday, the Miami Dolphins have apparently made everything worse. We've been in talks to trade Clowney to them and we apparently are insisting on OT Laremy Tunsil, which according to players on the Dolphins will cause a revolt. The Dolphins have a rookie head coach and it sounds like he might not have total control of this franchise yet and honestly there's no clear answer on what that means exactly but you don't want to hear that if you're a coach. Football is the ultimate team sport to borrow every sport cliché, and the reality is it does require 100% buy in from the players. So if they're not behind the coach or if they're doubting the organization, there's no chance for this season.

HAVING A BAD DAY

Apparently, in Mexico an Instagram influencer was doing yoga on a patio balcony six stories up and then fell. She survived but they say her knees and ankles will need to be restructured and that it'll take over three years to get back 100%. Having dealt with my own personal crazy leg injury, I'll tell you this, there is no worse experience than a long, hard rehab where you can only do a few hours of work a day and then you're stuck the rest of the day in bed. Time becomes the enemy and there is no way to make it go faster. I'm not going to be overly mean, it was a dumb thing to do, people are doing dumb things for attention all the time but honestly there's nothing I can say that's worse than what she's dealing with. Also, lots of people die every year taking selfies, like an embarrassingly high number… maybe we should start putting the phones down?

WEB OF SPIDER MAN

Word broke yesterday that Tom Holland filmed a scene in the movie Venom but Marvel flipped their lid and demanded it be deleted. This adds another layer to the whole Disney-Sony feud to me, it starts to paint the level of control that Marvel wanted to exercise over Spider-man. They may be right and they may not be, it's tough to know until we see the scene and find out what was in it. Was it bad? Was it good? Was it a mess? There's literally no way to know but it does start to paint Marvel in a bad light.

NOT THAT YOU ASKED

My fantasy football draft is this weekend, this is where championships happen boys. Step one is drafting like a champion. We got this!!

The Texans barely beat the Nick Foles-less Jaguars on Sunday which has some fans concerned with Bill O'Brien's ability to get the most out of his team.

Is Bill O'Brien the worst coach when it comes to getting the most out of his team's talent, or do other coaches across the NFL struggle with this even more than O'Brien?

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank, Barry Laminack, and Raheel Ramzanali weigh in on O'Brien's struggles and discuss which coaches are the worst at maximizing talent in the NFL.
