Word is “NFL execs” expect Jimmy G to be cut. Duh. Given the fact that Jimmy waited a month and a half before getting the surgery, they are less prone to giving a shit about him. Also, the 49er brass told Deebo they will not use him as a running back. Shocker there as well. Maybe John Lynch took a 2 x 4 to Kyle’s playbook. You know, the one that had Deebo facing D linemen by running him up the middle.
Let’s also hope he knocked out the parts where Trey Lance runs 18 times a game. These were my two biggest worries this offseason. How we use our best weapons.
And, the Warriors are at the stage in these finals where they are in must-win mode. Going down 3-1 isn’t advisable against a very tough Celtics team. Thing about Boston is they have a problem with consistency. They play well, they play poor the next game. It has happened to them all through the playoffs. However, they should be motivated to trying to salt this away. Dray had a shit game, as did the defense in general. Still and all, I see the Warriors bouncing back themselves.
Also, if you find yourself cheering on the Giants and Warriors tonight, raise a toast for a friend. Kevin Casey. He recently passed away, 6 months past his 60th birthday. I must have seen 50 football games with him, 100 Giants games, and a bunch of us watched football every weekend for about 14 years. From high school to our 30s. Then we started having kids, and we all did the Barney parties, the Gymboree parties, the sleepovers, and the football game watching parties got a lot more insane. Kevin was a guitar player and singer all his life, and his claim to fame was getting hired, and fired, by Ronnie Montrose to be his lead singer.
Rock on, my brother.
