Show Me The Money

The Dallas Cowboys kick off training camp this weekend as the defending NFC East champions. Last season ended with a playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams, which marked 23 straight years the Cowboys were shut out of the NFC Championship game. Only the Washington Redskins and Detroit Lions have longer title-game droughts. But America’s Team remains the biggest must-see show in sports. Dallas sits atop the globe’s richest sports league with profits … and team valuation of $5 billion dollars. See the entire Top 50 sports franchises here.

Grinding Out The Profits

Leonid K from Coleman, FL dropped me this note, wanting to know – “Do you see Tampa Bay having any kind of run game this year?” Good question, Leonid. I rather doubt it, considering new head coach Bruce Arians’ aversion to the run game. Couple that with the little known fact that since the start of 2017 QB Jameis Winston has 11 games with at least 300 passing yards – tied for third most behind Jared Goff (13), Matt Ryan (12), and Ben Roethlisberger (12). FYI: Ryan has started 32 games in that span, Big Ben and Goff 31. Winston has started just 22. In other words, over the past two seasons, Winston has thrown for at least 300 yards in half of his starts. In addition, last season Winston threw for a league-high 10.7 air yards per pass attempt. That makes them a pass-first team. Like Paul Harvey would say, and now you know the rest of the story.
