Dan Quinn went into the coaches’ breakfast at the NFL owners’ meeting in Phoenix, Ariz., knowing he would field plenty of questions about the Falcons’ blown lead in Super Bowl 51. That experience hasn’t been far from Quinn’s mind, especially a day after 3-28, when people used the date to make endless jokes on the internet about the Falcons’ blown 25-point lead.
Quinn revealed that he got support from two coaches who know something about guiding their teams through excruciating choke jobs: Warriors head coach Steve Kerr and Indians skipper Terry Francona.
The Warriors become a meme after giving away a 3-1 lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s NBA Finals.

“The people who I’ve reached out to, a guy like Steve Kerr, who had called and said ‘Hey man, I recognize, we were up 3-1,’” Quinn said on Wednesday.

Detroit Lions defensive end Ziggy Ansah is not expected to play in Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ansah sustained a high ankle sprain against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8, and hasn’t been able to play since then. It’s unclear when he’ll be able to return to the lineup. Ansah was a first-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft.
New York Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson, a rookie taken in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, thinks he’s the top player in the league. He said as much when asked about Muhammad Wilkerson, who is having a monster year himself. Richardson said that he thinks he’s better than Wilkerson, who happens to be one of his teammates. Confidence is definitely a good thing, though Richardson clearly isn’t quite there yet.
