Is it May yet? Nope, it is only the first week of April. There is only so much beer, rest, and Tiger King that you can handle. Do you find yourself waking up wondering what day is it? Have you worn pajamas for the last week in a half straight? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I think I have something for you. It is the Let's Take it One Day at a Time" Challenge. Here are some FAQs about it:

Why should I do this challenge?

That's simple. To stay sane. It is hard to have purpose in your life when your routine is turned over. This is the perfect thing to find some grounding. Besides mental and physical health should be top priority now.

When does it start?

The official start date in Monday, April 13, 2002.

Where is it held?

We are definitely practicing social distancing. This challenge can be done where ever you can find some mileage. This could be at a park, in your neighborhood, on a hike and bike trail, or on a treadmill.

How do I do this challenge?

This is a running and walking challenge. Every Sunday, you will pledge your commitment on our Facebook page. The commitment goes as follows:

10 miles/week

15 miles/week

20 miles/week

25 miles/week

We will keep track of the miles and post them on Sunday.

When does the challenge end?

This challenge starts every Monday. Because we do not know when life will go back to normal, we will have a challenge every week.

What can I post on the Facebook group?

Post as much as you want. We love to see memes, pictures, your times and distances, and other motivational posts. The rules are on the Facebook group.

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
