Tom Brady Dodges Awkward Donald Trump Question

Anyone who has a big game coming up can usually only focus on that game. Some people don't get that concept.

 

With that being said, it's odd that someone would ask Tom Brady about Donald Trump during a press conference just days before the AFC Conference Championship. One reporter asked Brady to talk about the call he allegedly made to Trump to congratulate him on the presidency. His response was pretty much what you would expect.

Stephen A. Smith Claims Nepotism Helped Sean McVay Get the Rams Job

Stephen A. Smith Claims Nepotism Helped Sean McVay Get the Rams Job

Stephen A. Smith has a take on everything, and the head coaching job of the Rams is no different.

 

The First Take host talks about about the Los Angeles team hiring Sean McVay, who is only 30, and the fact that it may have been based a little more on who he knows rather than his skill set. Smith brought up Mike Tomlin, who was 34 when he was picked to be the head coach of the Steelers, but this hiring seems to have a different vibe to Smith.
