Are dog ghosts haunting Michael Vick, causing him and the Jets to be cursed? Let's ask Tony Dungy this oddly specific question.
Tony Dungy tried again today to explain his Michael Sam comments, this time on the The Dan Patrick Show, and it somehow became all about Jonathan Martin.
Maybe Tony Dungy really should rethink whether he would draft a guy like Michael Sam because, for a player dealing with his first NFL training camp controversy, Sam responded to Dungy's I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin' homophobia pretty perfectly. He was funny, mildly self-deprecating, and even said Tony Dungy was…
Tony Dungy has released a statement on his comments that he wouldn't draft Michael Sam. And wouldn't you know it, we're all really to blame.
This morning, Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless shouted at each other about Tony Dungy's comments that Michael Sam's sexuality would be an overriding distraction in an NFL locker room, and whether it was a bigger distraction that Michael Vick's return from prison. I'm sorry, that's the worst sentence I've ever typed.
On last night's show, Keith Olbermann took Tony Dungy to task for his comments that he "wouldn't have taken" Michael Sam because he "wouldn't want to deal with" the accompanying distractions.
It's not a shock that former coach and continued insufferable shit Tony Dungy says he wouldn't want anything to do with an openly gay player on his team. It's just surprising it took someone this long to ask him.
When last we met Ken Tarr, he was riding high off the Dungy-to-USC prank and planned on offering Will Muschamp a middling position at a middling program just to "see if he gets insulted or not." Now he's in a Los Angeles jail, on suspicion of felony eavesdropping.
Tomorrow's New York Times has a short story on Nathan Whitaker, who is presumably among the most successful people in the football-media nexus, and presumably unbeknownst to you.

"If I'm Reggie Bush, I give back the trophy," Tony Dungy said yesterday in his capacity as football's freelance moral compass. This is all he does anymore: intone some insufferably pious crap that's just aching to be cross-stitched onto a decorative pillow.
The retirement of Tony Dungy has brought forth some divided opinions from two different sets of minorities about the coach's legacy as a human being.

Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy spoke with kids at a high school in Tampa on Thursday and apparently he was in a mood to foment him some controversy. And not in the usual "condemning o' the gays" way. Nope. He took a shot at the rival New England Patriots being embroiled in MattWalshGate. Nothing wrong with that.…
So you probably new that NASCAR has its own Erin Andrews (although I prefer the original). But did you know that Nicole Manske has her sights set on the NFL? Manske, a former Miss Illinois Teen USA and native of Rockton, Ill. (where she was a high school cheerleader on the same squad with Danica Patrick), was a host…
