February 12th, 2019

Welcome to your Morning Cup of Joe, an eye-opener to help Joe’s readers ease into their busy workday with a few football links, wacky news and a pleasant distraction.

Distraction of the Day

Riverboat Ron Rivera starting to feel his collar getting tighter. [NFL]

Too early top candidate to land an NFL head coaching job a year from now? Todd Monken. [theMMQB]

Projection: Journeyman backup Ryan Fitzpatrick to the Packers. [Packers News]

There are more players in the NFL that were undrafted than there are drafted from Rounds 4-7. This just reinforces Joe’s thoughts that draft picks from the final three rounds should only be used as collateral to trade up. [Twitter]

The future of college sports on TV may debut shortly on the west coast. If the PAC-12 goes all digital (OTT) it may create a tsunami in how we watch college football. Hint: Amazon and Apple are players now in sports TV rights. [Mercury News]

Dolphin seems to have good taste but poor manners. Maybe it isn’t aware we live in the #MeToo age. Careful Flipper. [New York Post]

Coke debuts a new flavor later this month. [Wall Street Journal]

Without more insects, Planet Earth will collapse. [Guardian]

    The Panthers and the Falcons played poorly last year. Again this is another reason we can make the playoffs. The NFL South aside from N.O. is no longer dominant.

    She enjoyed that dolphin humping more than Hank Hill did.

    She’s enjoying her ride with the dolphin a bit too much.

    Duh, it’s a numbers thing. There are 32 picks for each team in each round 4-7 plus compensatory picks… meaning there are a little over 150 total picks in rounds 4-7. On the other hand, each team signs at least 20 undrafted free agents after the draft has concluded… that’s well over 650 players. That’s 600 players that teams had enough questions marks to not draft but liked enough as players or athletes to give a shot. Odds are pretty good that there will be more undrafted free agents on rosters than players drafted rounds 4-7… I’d bet there are a lot more UDFAs in the league than 1st round picks…. I could probably guarantee it.

    Thanks joe, interesting info regarding the draft picks. I would of never imagined that.

    I once met a dolphin trainer in Key West who told me the secret to train them.

    It involves a real “hands on approach”.

    She said don’t ever let your wife or daughters get into the water with a trained porpoise.
