* Santa Coffman.
4:25: Ryan Pace's Major Malfunction.
* Coffman: "Ryan Pace committed crushing general manager malpractice."
18:12: Matty Renteria.
* Here's the Bears coach speaking to the media this week:
27:55: Sign Kaepernick!
* The Patriots will be there. The Bears will not.
The Patriots, Dolphins and the Browns are a part of the 11 teams that have committed to attend Colin Kaepernick's workout. https://t.co/k8OsU0lGfd— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) November 14, 2019
37:07: The Next Man Is Inherently Up On Every Team In Every League!
Just in the last six hours before writing this.
* " . . . whatever does happen, next man up mentality."
* "Will the Rams' 'next man up' efforts be good enough on Sunday . . . "
* "A lot of coaches go cliche with 'next man up' lip service . . . but how do you message that out to your team to motivate them?"
* "The NFL is a next-man-up league . . . "
* "All of these injuries have led the Pacers to the next man up mentality . . . "
* "I know it sounds cliché, but it's next man up . . . "
* "The fact that the Patriots have succeeded despite all these injuries is a testament to their next-man-up philosophy . . . "
* "It's next man up once again for the Saints with injuries to key players . . . "
39:05: Brad Biggs' Mailbox Talks Football With You.
45:17: All Signs Point To Yu.
51:40: Abreu Will Be Back.
53:35: Bulls Still In It!
* Better than the Knicks.
56:54: The Blackhawks Are Back!
* Kane and The Cat!
25. Chicago Blackhawks
Previous ranking: 27
Can we ask an entire group to step up? The Blackhawks have a surplus of defensemen they're rotating in and out, but they're still leaky, giving up a league-high 37.1 shots per game. Good thing free-agent signing Robin Lehner has been so steady; he has already had to face 50-plus shots in two of his 10 starts.
1:03:22: Lovie Smith And His Beard Are Going Bowling.
* New goal: Get south of Detroit.
* If Beachwood Novelties was still a going concern, we'd be selling Lovie Smith Beards™ to Illinois students by the boatload.
1:06:38: Fire Coach Fired.
