PressBox’s chief grand poobah Stan “The Fan” Charles joined Glenn Clark Radio in studio for another round of “Five Words Or Less” Tuesday.
The sports figures discussed this week were:
-“Our long national nightmare is over. After a week’s worth of speculation, the Cowboys finally moved on from him this weekend and replaced him with Mike McCarthy-we know this had to be difficult for you because of how much you’ve appreciated him over the years,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett-S
-“When the Ravens host the Titans Saturday night, they’ll have to have an answer for him after he had another monster game in their win over the Patriots-he’s averaged 154 rushing yards per game over his last seven games,” Tennessee running back Derrick Henry-G
-“The Orioles gave you a little birthday gift yesterday, reportedly reaching a one year, three million dollar agreement with him,” free agent shortstop Jose Iglesias-S
-“After a questionable hit from Jadaveon Clowney Sunday, he was forced to leave the game due to a head injury, which fair or unfair lead to a lot of internet criticism about how injury prone he’s been in his career,” Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz-G
-“Not only do the Ravens need him to come through this Sunday and the rest of the playoffs, they’re apparently making more longer term plans. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora has reported that the team plans to use the franchise tag on him if they can’t reach a long term deal with him before free agency starts,” Baltimore pass rusher Matthew Judon-S
-“He announced yesterday that he would indeed leave Alabama, this despite a hip injury that will prevent him from even being able to throw the ball until the spring,” still likely first round quarterback Tua Tagovailoa-G
-“Only a few top free agents remain here in baseball’s hot stove season and he’s the biggest fish still out there-with reports that he has multiple four year, 100 plus million dollar offers on the table,” veteran third baseman Josh Donaldson-S
-“Already viewed unfavorably by a number of football fans, he received even more criticism this weekend when he mistakenly suggested in the fourth quarter that the Bills should run a draw play on 3rd down late in 4th quarterback against the Texans and then spike the ball-which, of course, would have come on fourth down. Fortunately the Bills did not heed that advice,” ESPN analyst Booger McFarland-G
-“Despite the fact that Lamar Jackson was overwhelmingly voted as the first team All-Pro quarterback this season, Ravens fans are still angry that he…and two SiriusXM colleagues…voted for Russell Wilson instead of him, this two years after he suggested Jackson should move from quarterback to receiver ahead of the NFL Draft,” Hall of Fame former General Manager Bill Polian-S
-“In what he said would be his final time hosting the Golden Globe Awards, he aggressively went after Hollywood stars, making light of their friendships with Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein and telling them they shouldn’t say anything political in their acceptance speeches,” British comedian Ricky Gervais-G
