Lane Johnson a win from ‘giving out beer to everyone’
Alshon Jeffery is one win away from being semi-prescient, and Lane Johnson is one victory from potentially piling up a ginormous bar tab.
If Johnson does dethrone Brady, perhaps he’ll have some help paying for all those beers.
As for Jeffery, the wide receiver said last year I guarantee you we’ll win the Super Bowl. Jeffery was with the Chicago Bears at the time before heading to Philly as a free agent in the offseason. In November, Jeffery clarified: I never said a team, though. I never said a team.
You can forgive Jeffery his lapse. Sometimes the crystal ball shows you holding the Lombardi Trophy and skews the jersey being worn.
Now all the Eagles must do is knock off the mighty the five-time Super Bowl-winning Patriots for all the above to come to fruition. Easy peasy.
Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo spoke with Jason Kidd 15 minutes before the coach was fired Monday, telling him he would do what he could to help save Kidd’s job. Kidd said he replied, There’s nothing you can do. All you can do is tell the truth.
Many factors went into this decision, the letter continued, but ultimately we decided that a fresh approach and a change in leadership are needed to continue elevating our team to the next level and bringing us closer to our goal of winning championships. We believe that making this change now is important for the organization and gives our players the best chance to reach their full potential this season and beyond.
Despite a talented roster that features All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and recent trade acquisition Eric Bledsoe, the Bucks are 23-22 and currently are the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.
