This video is neither trending nor especially topical. Other than the fact I worked with a comic who did a hilarious bit about his son’s addiction to Thomas the Tank Engine and it jogged my memory of this weird, compellingly dark piece of editing, I have no reason to post it. But it is genius. You don’t need an excuse to enjoy a creepily grim compilation of Thomas train crashes set to Drowning Pool’s “Let the Bodies Hit the Floor” besides it’s own obvious awesomeness. I apologize for nothing.

I also raised two sons on Thomas. And never realized how violent it is. It’s a miracle those boys aren’t in therapy.

NESNIt’€™s safe to say Marshall Faulk will never get over the St. Louis Rams‘€™ loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI. Faulk has been outspoken over the years about Spygate, suggesting the scandal might have played a role in the Patriots’€™ ability to defeat the heavily favored Rams in February 2002.

The former Rams running back wasn’€™t quite as pointed Tuesday when pressed on the issue by ProFootballTalk’€™s Mike Florio, but Faulk doesn’€™t sound ready to wipe the slate clean, either. “€œWe could all see the tapes and see what they saw and that would end it,” Faulk said on Radio Row leading up to Super Bowl 50. “But we know that’€™s not possible.”

There’s not much that could fill my heart with joy and wonder today, but this is doing it for me. The fact that still, to this day, 14 years after the fact, Marshall Faulk’s steps are haunted by losing the Patriots is absolutely taking me to Pleasuretown. The fact that this bitter, angry, ungracious troll still can’t get over the fact he was on the losing end of an all time great upset and lost fair and square is my Ecstacy, and I don’t ever want to get clean.

It would tragic if it wasn’t so funny. Faulk continues to struggle to come to grips with reality and instead is substituting his own. Seeing cameras where there were none, secret tapes that never existed and ghosts standing behind him in the bathroom mirror. It’s fabulous. And so much more fun than if, say, he was gracious and magnanimous and congratulated the Patriots on outplaying his team.

Granted, I’m still down about the Patriots losing the AFC title game. And nothing can take the sting of that away. But the fact Marshall Faulk is still talking Spygate and carrying on with Crygate helps. I love those sweet tears of unfathomable sadness…

After a Goodell-hatred montage at the top, the guys continue to discuss the NFL & Goodell's decision to not check PSI every game.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Rams have discussed the possibility of bringing Peyton Manning to Los Angeles next season. While many suspect Manning will retire after this year, if he does give it a go in 2016 he apparently already is drawing interest outside of Denver.

Writes Schefter: Manning still must decide whether he wants to play again, and the Rams still are formulating their quarterback plans. But they are monitoring the Manning situation, per a source, which is a sign that the Broncos quarterback could have options next season.

It also sets up the possibility — even if it is remote — that Manning could finish his career in Southern California just as former Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas did with the San Diego Chargers in 1973 and former New York Jets quarterback Joe Namath did with Los Angeles Rams in 1977.

The Rams quarterbacks entering 2016 are Case Keenum, Nick Foles and Sean Mannion. Needless to say, if Manning were to sign with the Rams he would be stepping right into a starting role with the team.

While Manning recently told Bill Belichick that this could be his “last rodeo,” it remains to be seen if he will give it one more shot next season.

In an interview with Mike Florio, Marshall Faulk stated that the only time he thinks about the his SB loss, is when people mention what the Patriots did. He added that he still would love to see the tapes but he knows that isn't possible.

The real surprise isn’t that Rob Gronkowski once worked a gig stripping for a bachelorette party. It’s that he once worked a gig stripping for a bachelorette party. It just seems like such a natural. I never gave it any thought before, but if you’d asked me how many times women paid him to go all “Magic Mike” for them, I would’ve put the number in the thousands. Obviously I’d rather have him focus on football and his rapidly growing party cruise enterprise, but you could definitely see him have a successful career in the lucrative and rewarding Lap Dancing Horny Drunk Women industry. As a matter of fact, it’s not hard to imagine him turning it into a cottage industry. Opening lap dance academies and teaching the fine art to others. He’d be milling money in no time.

Again, I’m happy to have him making football and drunken tourism his focus for now. But if he ever does get back to his stripping roots, there’s one old lady from The Globies last year who’d be his first customer.

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick

After a dreadful season in 2015, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick reportedly wants out of San Francisco, and his preferred destination apparently is the Jets. This is according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, citing sources.

Kaepernick has experienced quite the fall from grace, as just a few years removed from leading his team to the Super Bowl he was benched in favor of Blaine Gabbert midway through the 2015 season.

While he may want out of San Francisco, that is easier said than done. The 28-year-old has five years left on his $114 million deal he signed in 2014. The 49ers will need to decide if they want to trade Kaepernick, cut him or keep him right where he is. On April 1, his salary for the upcoming season ($11.9 million) will become guaranteed. That means if the team is going to make a move, it might need to do it relatively soon.

An additional and maybe more significant question is if the Jets actually are interested in Kaepernick. They are coming off their best season since 2010, and that was in large part due to the success of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. They also have 25-year-old Geno Smith, who has not had much success in the NFL, but Jets owner Woody Johnson recently was quoted as saying he has “the ability” if he sticks with it.

If the Jets do feel Kaepernick would be a beneficial addition to their team, trading for him likely would cost them more than signing him if he was cut by the 49ers. It remains to be seen what their level of interest is in Kaepernick, if any at all.
