Former Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels actually made it to the press conference where he was announced as the next Raiders head coach. Ex-QB Jeff Garcia has gone into hiding after blasting Mina Kimes for her Jimmy Garoppolo take, which turned out to be a pretty accurate assessment in lieu of the 49ers losing to the Rams in the NFC Championship. And Cincinnati public schools are canceling school the Monday after the Super Bowl and we think this needs to become a universal practice.

Video Transcript

MARK DAVIS: Before we get to questions, I just want to say one thing. When I met Josh on Saturday and said hey. I introduced myself and everything. And he said-- he looked me in the eye, and he said, there's one thing. It was a fumble. [LAUGHS] So Raider Nation, if you're worried, he's already come over to the dark side.

JARED QUAY: That was Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis showcasing his terrible haircut while introducing his new head football coach on Monday. It seems like Josh McDaniels is already sucking up to his new boss.

The fumble he was referencing is none other than the infamous tuck rule debacle between the Raiders and McDaniels' former employer, the Patriots, back in the 2002 AFC Divisional Round. So it didn't take long for Josh to pledge himself to his new dark lord.

- Yes, my master.

JARED QUAY: To be honest I'm kind of surprised McDaniels didn't chicken out last second and crawl back to the Patriots. The fact that he even showed up to the press conference means he must be serious this time.

- Only time will tell.

JARED QUAY: I don't know if you know this, but apparently the only people who are qualified to comment on football are those who've actually played in the game.

- Oh, is that right?

JARED QUAY: Well, that's a mediocre ex-quarterback Jeff Garcia would have you believe. He called out Mina Kimes last week for daring to say that the 49ers were winning with Jimmy Garoppolo but not because of him.

- Sounds like somebody's got a case of the Mondays.

JARED QUAY: After the 49ers loss to the Rams in the NFC Championship, where Jimmy G threw the pick to seal the loss. Big mouth Jeff Garcia promptly went into hiding by privatizing his IG and deactivating his Twitter.

- What a loser.

JARED QUAY: Listen, Jeff, if you're gonna say some stupid ass [BLEEP], don't run away when the going gets tough.

- Tail set firmly between your legs, I see.

JARED QUAY: The Cincinnati Bengals are in the middle of rewriting their history books after punching their ticket to the Super Bowl, though we can probably forgive their fan base for being a little overexcited. Cincy public schools have canceled school the day after the Super Bowl.

- Well, that's all we want. We all want the big one, don't we?

JARED QUAY: Actually, now that I think about it, can't we all get that? I mean, we've been saying it for years now. The day after the Super Bowl should be a national holiday. Don't nobody want to go to work all hungover, and ain't no kid trying to do no homework while the Super Bowl is on.

The way I see it, if Cincinnati wins, give them the whole week off, man. Go ahead and enjoy yourself. Get an extra week of spring break.
