Nothing is nicer than Gronk’s 69th touchdown

Not only that, but, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com, Gronk’s stats are actually littered with 69s. The touchdown isn’t all we have to celebrate: He’s also at 69.4 yards per game, and his catch percentage is 69.6 percent. What are the odds? I can only chalk it up to divine intervention. If Gronk’s story truly is a Greek myth, Zeus is up there on Mount Olympus, drinking a High Life in his La-Z-Boy with his feet up on the coffee table, watching football and patting himself on the back for orchestrating such a momentous occasion.

Look, I know this sounds like one big joke, and that’s probably because it is.

Reid became head coach in Philadelphia in 1999, took the franchise to a Super Bowl but never won one. He was fired in 2012 and now is in his fifth season in Kansas City. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie decided the Eagles needed a new voice, a new style, a new plan. Lurie is on his second coach since — first Chip Kelly, now Doug Pederson — who happens to have been Reid’s offensive coordinator in Kansas City and who spent 12 years in the league with Reid as a player or coach.

Reid disagreed with Lurie’s decision. It hurt him to leave Philadelphia, a team and a town with which he shared special bonds. He has built a fast and strong team in Kansas City.

Gruden and Washington seek to avoid a huge 0-2 hole.

This game should feature plenty of offensive wizardry.

The sting of losing it for Gruden would be severe. No veteran NFL coach wants to lose to a guy who is in only his second NFL game as a head coach. Especially one he tutored. Especially considering a Washington fan base that is already fretting and antsy.
