Hard to believe it's already Monday, yet here we are. So as frustrated and annoyed as you may all be to be returning to work, relax over breakfast and coffee this morning with the following AM headlines.
The NFL is throwing a flag on use of the N-word.
In a groundbreaking move, the league is expected to agree to start penalizing players 15 yards for uttering the racial slur on the field, according to the group that monitors diversity in the league.
Tight ends coach Mike Pope is the latest assistant in which Garrett dipped into his past.
Garrett was a backup quarterback with the New York Giants when Pope coached their tight ends.
“He’s really as good a coach as I’ve been around in my career,” Garrett said. “I saw him up close and personal with a lot of different guys, established players and young players and he’s a great friend. He’s a great addition to our staff and [Jason Witten] is the kind of guy who’s always trying to get better. Each and every day [Witten] comes in he’s always looking for ways we can help him, how he can help himself become a better football player. That’s why he is the player he is. To add Mike Pope to the mix and having a different perspective on how he gets coaches, I think Witt’s really excited and I know Mike Pope is as well.”
More than 110 million viewers saw this year’s Super Bowl, making it the most watched television event in U.S. history. That means a lot of people saw 22-year-old North Bergen resident Ashley Marie Gonzalez, whether they know it or not.
“We were chosen to be a part of the Super Bowl halftime show,” said Gonzalez, who used to cheer at North Bergen High School and is now part of a dance team based in New York. “It was a great experience. We met a lot of people, we did a lot of events in New York and New Jersey, meeting players, doing signings.”
With the 25-year anniversary of the day he bought the Cowboys coming up on Tuesday, owner Jerry Jones spent a little time Sunday reminiscing about the days leading up to the purchase of the some of the decisions he made.
Jones' biggest regret was the rushed decision to fire legendary coach Tom Landry and replace him with Jimmy Johnson. Jones doesn't regret the move, just the circumstances that forced him to act so quickly and thus come off as disrespectful to Landry.
