Start your day with the Morning Cup of Joe from HootersCalendar.com. And don’t forget to visit HootersCalendar.com for the 2017 calendar, amazing videos, pictures and cool gifts. It’s Joe’s second favorite website.

Unless you sit in a room with an offensive line coach or a former NFL offensive lineman and do a week’s worth of research, you have no idea why an offensive line is good or bad. Yes, Joe is looking right at you, PFF tribe! [theMMQB]

Mike Zimmer needed emergency eye surgery last night and may not coach tonight against the Cowboys. [NFL]

Don’t blame Roberto Aguayo the next time he misses an extra-point. [CBS Sports]

Joe doesn’t shed one tear. You overcharge for nonsense, this is what happens. Now that DirecTV has an online service, Joe is *this close* to cord-cutting (for non-football months). Getting awfully hard to justify inflated TV bills for a service Joe rarely watches. [Front Page Mag]
