Crazy thing is that Gaine did a pretty good job in his only season signing some good UFA's on the cheap and drafting a few good players despite not having a 1st or 2nd round draft pick to work with. Unfortunately he didn't see eye to eye with O'Brien on some aspects of the team and once again "King" O'Brien as the Houston media is calling him wins another power struggle with his GM.

Pat Bowlen, the longtime owner of the Denver Broncos, died late Thursday night at his home in Denver, his family announced. He was 75.

Bowlen had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

"We are saddened to inform everyone that our beloved husband and father, Pat Bowlen, passed on to the next chapter of his life late Thursday night peacefully at home surrounded by family," his family said in a statement that was released through the team. "His soul will live on through the Broncos, the city of Denver and all of our fans."

Great owner and Mr B had a significant impact on the growth of the NFL. Although he would not have been able to attend his induction, it's a little sad that he's gone before his enshrinement.

The fight for ownership of the Broncos looks to be a nasty family feud and that too is sad.

Can't believe O'Brien has that kind of power with Texans ownership, the guy just seems like the biggest meathead dummy. He looks like a high school gym teacher.

Sad news -- former Giants QB and SuperBowl winner Jared Lorenzen passed away today at age 38.

I remember watching him play at Kentucky -- when he became known as the Hefty Lefty, J-Load, and the Pillsbury Throwboy. Truly one of a kind.

Former New England Patriots linebacker and current ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi is recovering after suffering a stroke Thursday, his family said in a statement.

"He recognized his warning signs immediately: arm weakness, face drooping and speech difficulties. Tedy is recovering well," according to the statement issued Friday. "Tedy and his family thank you for your ongoing encouragement, and kindly ask for privacy at this time."

Bruschi, 46, previously suffered a stroke in 2005, while he was a member of the Patriots. He missed the first six weeks of the season, then returned to play eight months after the stroke.

Not that Tyreek doesn't deserve a little blame for staying with her despite her being crazy, but the TV station selectively releasing things is why people hate the media so much.

Quote:
A radio station has aired an audio recording of an argument between Tyreek Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, in which the Kansas City Chiefs star receiver denied committing assault and battery against Espinal -- a charge he pleaded guilty to in 2015.

The audio, aired Tuesday by Kansas City station 610 KCSP, is the complete recording of the argument that was already partially broadcast earlier this year by television station KCTV5.

During the argument, Espinal accused Hill of abusing the couple's 3-year-old son, who had suffered a broken arm. The boy's injury led to an investigation into possible child abuse, but Hill was not charged with a crime.

KCTV5 released most of the audio in April, but did not include a part of the argument that was aired Tuesday in which Hill accused Espinal of lying about the 2014 incident involving the couple.

A league source told ESPN's Dan Graziano that NFL investigators already were aware of the full recording, have heard it and are factoring it into their discussions on potential discipline for Hill.

Hill pleaded guilty in August 2015 to domestic assault and battery by strangulation after being arrested eight months earlier for allegedly punching and choking Espinal, who was pregnant at the time. During the 2015 guilty plea, Hill told a judge that "I did something I shouldn't have done" and that "I let my feelings take control of me."

But in the recording aired Tuesday by 610 KCSP, Hill told Espinal that he "didn't touch you in 2014."

"You f---ing ruined my life and you lied on me in 2014," Hill told Espinal. "I'm still not over that. I didn't touch you in 2014.

"You lied on me in 2014. If you want to rewind that night, we can rewind that night, too. You was in my house. And did I pick you up and slam you? Hell no. I picked you up and put you out my door and after that you left."

Espinal then asked Hill twice "where did the bruises come from," but Hill did not answer the question directly, responding on multiple occasions, "Did I hit you?"

Espinal also told Hill that "you had your hand around my neck," but Hill responded, "No, I did not."

The couple's argument then shifts to the alleged incident involving their son.

Los Angeles running back Melvin Gordon has informed the Chargers that unless he receives a new contract, he will not report to training camp and he will demand a trade, his agent Fletcher Smith told ESPN.
