Derek Carr: It’s been cool getting pushed by Jon Gruden

There were some who wondered if Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and head coach Jon Gruden would make for a poor fit because of Gruden’s aggressive coaching style, but Carr says all has gone well thus far.

Carr said Tuesday that anyone who was a fly on the wall in a room with the two men would find they are “eerily similar” and joked that no one should assume he can’t handle hearing the F-word because they haven’t heard him say it. Carr also noted that he’s played for other football coaches, so the idea that he hasn’t been exposed to strong attitudes and language is a silly one.

In 2014, he helped open the Joe Namath Neurological Research Center in Jupiter with the doctors who helped him. Now, he is trying to get the FDA to approve HBOT as a treatment Cheap Baseball Jerseys China for neurological issues.

Some of these [problems] may not need to go in that direction with surgery or drugs, Namath said. This is an alternative. It’s an additional process to help him. I’m convinced. I know it works. My heart and soul are behind it. But I know from the last five years this is a tedious process, trying to convince and get the approval [from the FDA]. We need to help people more with traumatic brain injuries.

That’s the obvious football-related takeaway from the bizarre story from Philadelphia regarding 76ers President of Basketball Operations Bryan Colangelo’s use of five — FIVE! — phony Twitter accounts for the purpose of saying things about players, coaches, etc. that he could never say in his own name.

Colangelo, despite the very real possibility that he’d eventually be caught (which was borne out by the fact that he was), now faces the very real possibility that he’ll be fired. Which makes fascinating the very real possibility that folks covering the NFL will begin swarming social media and working sources for any evidence that prominent NFL figures (or, gulp, media members) have been doing the same.

Last year, an account of a quasi-burner account emerged in the NFL, via the story that the wife of Commissioner Roger Goodell had been maintaining a Twitter account aimed at defending him and/or attacking his critics. Mrs. Goodell’s account was detected via sleuthing; Colangelo’s came from a tip. (Which raises two obvious questions: Why would Colangelo tell anyone else that he had burner accouts, and how many people did he tell?)
