Washington team President Bruce Allen thinks he upgraded at the quarterback position this offseason because Alex Smith has won more games than Kirk Cousins as a starting quarterback. But in making that case, Allen may have inadvertently painted himself as a failure.
Allen said at the league meeting that everyone in football — not just the quarterback but everybody, including the team president — should be judged on winning or losing.
“Wins and losses is the most important statistic when it comes to an equipment manager, a team president, a quarterback, a running back, a guard or a coach,” Allen said, via the Washington Post.
But in 2016, Palm Beach County also was the epicenter of Florida’s opioid crisis; 571 people died from overdoses that year alone, the most of any county in the state and a 110 percent increase from the previous year, according to an analysis of state data by the Palm Beach Post.
Jamie checked into Beachway Therapy Center in Boynton Beach, an intensive in-patient facility that cost $15,000 per month. He spent more than a month at Beachway before moving into Sober Living in Delray, a supervised apartment complex.
The Chiefs made Hunt the 86th overall pick, and in Week 1, he showed he was drafted too low. His 246 yards from scrimmage in the season opener were the most ever in a player’s debut.
“I feel like I’m getting [respect] now, but coming up I definitely didn’t feel I was getting the respect I deserved,” Hunt said on Good Morning Football, via the team website. “I just put that right here [in my mind] and now you have to show and be about it.”
Hunt, 22, rushed for a league-leading 1,327 yards, while catching 53 passes for 455 yards and three touchdowns. He wants to grow in the passing game.
“I want to be known as a guy who can do it all,” Hunt said. “Le’Veon [Bell] is a great receiver out of the backfield and route-runner, and I definitely want to show more of that.”
Hunt’s 1,782 yards from scrimmage ranked third in the league in 2017.
