December 4th, 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

Hard to believe Dan Quinn in Atlanta outlasted Riverboat Ron in Carolina. [Panthers]

The Belicheats are going through kickers like Joe goes through beers. So cool! [CBS Sports]

Don’t trust the Seahawks. Really? [USA Today]

Jerry Jones said on his radio show that Jason Garrett will coach in the NFL next year. But where? [1053thefan]

Meanwhile, Lincoln Riley is reportedly tight with Jerry Jones. Hhhmmm? [SI]

Former Raiders running back George Atkinson III, 27, died under a cloak of secrecy. His twin brother died a year ago from suicide. His mother was a crack addict. Yes, he’s the son of former Raiders great George Atkinson. [Yahoo! Sports]

Skip Bayless’ wife, a New Yorker who followed her husband to Los Angeles, admits her friends are appalled she watches football on Saturdays. Don’t you just hate people like this? Proof positive of a country divided. Friggin’ move to Europe, yentas. You can have all your wine and your cheese and your culture and your artsy fartsy lifestyle you wish, with no football to bother you. [Newsday]

Jacksonville University drops football program. Suits claim the move was “data-driven.” Boy, stat geeks have really enriched our society, haven’t they? [Jacksonville]

    The plumber is wearing a Mississippi State hat.

    The story about Mrs. Bayless: “One thing about the book that likely will bother some readers is its stereotypical gender assumptions about sports fans.”

    I hate those yentas too! This is why we cant have nice things. You cant say anything without a Diane Chambers whining about something stupid

  3. Razor Ramone Says:

    “Yentas”… awesome.

  4. westernbuc Says:

    They don’t have football but they have soccer and I’m certain the sport is as uncultured as American football. Proof that everyone in Hollywood was picked on in high school by the jocks.

  5. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    Jeez Joe, Skip Bayless’ wife get under your skin much? Your comments sound exactly like what a tweeting social justice warrior house-wife b!t@h would say. How they “hate” and should “friggin move” elsewhere.
    The country is divided because people are hypocrites.

  6. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Are you suffering from social injustice anxiety?

    solution: get off Twitter ..duh

  7. Buczilla Says:

    Dude, you nailed the distraction of the day. My goodness gracious. 😊

    “… appalled she watches football on Saturdays.”

    “Proof positive of a country divided. Friggin’ move to Europe, yentas.”

    LOLOLOLOL talk about a massive overreaction / fabrication of what the article said. Now the country is divided b/c some people don’t watch sports? Gimme a break. Don’t be so sensitive.

  9. ClodHopper Says:


    Joe was being funny you uptight grannies. Artsy fartsy and yentas is a giveaway.

    And you think HE needs to lighten up?


  10. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    @ Chodelicker

    It never ceases to amaze me how dense you can be.

  11. unbelievable Says:

    Ah yes that must be more that of that “don’t take his words literal, that’s not what he really meant” sort of thing, right clod? 😂😂😂


  12. ClodHopper Says:


    How about more of that “The only funny punchline is orange man bad” right unbelievable. The evil orange man has ruined humor for you chicken littles

  13. ClodHopper Says:


    I think Newton’s cradle never ceases to amaze you, simpleton.

  14. ClodHopper Says:

    I mean who uses artsy fartsy in a serious rant besides Al Borland? 😂😂😂

    You guys read Joe every day and probably listen to the podcasts and you don’t know his sense of humor yet? Pffft

    Haters gotta hate

  15. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    ”Haters gotta hate”
    Who says that anymore?
    Not Iowans

    “Proof positive of a country divided. Friggin’ move to Europe, yentas.”

    Joe, why are you so misunderstood? LOL

    Yenta may be the best word ever invented. It feels and sounds just like what it means. It’s like a precisely timed musical note that perfectly catches your mood. 🙂
