New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady gave his MVP truck from Super Bowl XLIX to cornerback Malcolm Butler as a way of saying thanks for his game-saving interception. This year, he said running back James White deserves it.
But there was one notable problem: Since Super Bowl XLIX, the Super Bowl MVP has no longer received a truck.
Enter Conan O’Brien and Ford, who presented White with a Ford F-150 on O’Brien’s late-night talk show.
I don’t see how Jay Cutler comes back. Both sides need a clean break. Eight years is enough. But regardless of what happens to Cutler (trade or release), the Bears have to draft a quarterback at some point. They have to explore every possible option to upgrade at quarterback — and keep doing so well beyond 2017. If the worst-case scenario is the Bears strike out on Garoppolo, draft a developmental quarterback, and re-sign a veteran such as Brian Hoyer to begin the year, then so be it. I just can’t envision Cutler being part of any future plans.
Garrett, a Texas A&M defensive end who hadn’t officially declared for the NFL draft at that time, addressed Jerry Jones, owner of his hometown Cowboys, and Dallas coach Jason Garrett.
“All right, I’m speaking to you, Jerry,” Garrett said. “Mr. Garrett, make it happen. Dak Prescott is leading our team right now. I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple picks, give them to Cleveland so you can pick me up. Please. I would love to play in Dallas. Just make it happen.”
Falcons coach Dan Quinn relieved former defensive coordinator Richard Smith of his duties earlier in the week, with Smith now reportedly interviewing to be linebackers coach for the Los Angeles Chargers. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Quinn took over playcalling duties from Smith late in the regular season, during a Dec. 4 game against Kansas City.
