With all the talk about Garoppolo being the most sought after quarterback in this offseason, I think it's a good time to remind fans about the following connection between him and the Cowboys' Tony Romo: In addition to both being sought after by many teams this offseason, they both are also alumni of Eastern Illinois University.
While a lot of fans may have already known that, they might not know that Sean Payton and Mike Shanahan also played there. Shanahan almost died from having his kidney ruptured during practice and eventually went into coaching there.
Yes, Mike Shanahan is Kyle Shanahan's father. Kyle was offensive coordinator for the Falcons and is now the new 49ers head coach. The 49ers are one of three teams which is supposedly interested in Jimmy G. The other two are the Bears and Browns.
WHITE HOUSE- While I don't really care if players go or don't go to the White House, it's pretty lame for people to tell them not to go.
JULES- His mic'd up videos from the game are great.
