Whoops. Josh Gordon is Being Semi-Benched for Showing Up Late

So, as I was saying about Josh Gordon. …

This changes nothing. He apparently was late and this is a perfect opportunity for a “teachable moment.” A little tough love to remind him he’s not on Hue Jackson’s Island of Misfit Toys any more.

The worst part of this is, as I wrote and scheduled that post earlier, I asked myself if maybe I was asking for trouble. The classic Old Balls mush. But I don’t take back a word of it. In fact, I’m doubling down. He’ll sit for a couple of possessions and still get his 100 yards.
