Random Ramsdom, June 16: The NFL, A Land of Comedy

The NFL has been positively hilarious this week...let's have some fun.

Does Barrett Jones have the inside line to the starting center job?

Barrett Jones might be the most decorated player in the history of Alabama football. In 2012, he became the third Alabama player to become a two-time consensus All-American. In 2011, he won the Outland Trophy as the nation's best interior lineman. In 2012, he won the Rimington Trophy as the nation's best center. In 2012, he also won the William C. Campbell Trophy, an award sometimes called the "Academic Heisman"

It's easy to forget just how good and versatile Barrett Jones was at one of the premier colleges in the nation. Wracked with injuries thus far, one hopes to see him duplicate that success in the NFL.

"The two are not related," Fisher said. "The Cowboys have practiced against somebody just about every year there. The facility is such that it welcomes another team. So we talked to a number of teams besides the Cowboys about working together with them and Cowboys is really the only one that worked out."

Yeah...I'm just gonna go ahead and have to disagree with that. It's not like anyone would want to gauge the fan potential in the Los Angeles market or anything...

Just what the heck is going on here? -Arizona Sports

Somewhere, some people think that Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians are snickering behind their computers.

That's because the Cardinals are currently under FBI investigation for hacking into the personal databases of the Houston Astros, according to the New York Times.

Because, Bugs Bunny...and St. Louis...

Per rumors reports- the Cardinals are running a lot of no-huddle. New offensive philosophy or just looking to play a lot of games from behind this year?
