When it comes to NFL news, things get slow in July. Everyone is on vacation and with minicamps just having wrapped up in the last couple weeks, nobody is itching to get in any sort of trouble... yet. However, it would appear that no days are slower for NFL news than the ones that fall in the middle of a 4-day 4th of July weekend.

Click around on the go-to NFL news sites and you’ll see that many haven’t added content since Friday. I have to give kudos to Profootballtalk.com, in lieu of news they currently have two articles breaking down Amazon’s series All or Nothing. When there ain’t any news, they went out and dug some up anyway.

All or Nothing shields much of Jeff Fisher’s firing from view | ProFootballTalk
The second season of Amazon's All or Nothing includes the inherently compelling aftermath of the firing of a head coach, but it doesn't go far enough.

After warning from referee, Fisher told defensive players to “crank it up even more” | ProFootballTalk
Over the years, teams coached by Jeff Fisher have had a reputation for being chippy to the point, at times, of dirty. And Fisher for the most part hasn't been criticized for his role as the captain of a ship of fools. One specific scene from All or Nothing could change that perception.

It’s probably a good thing nothing is going on. These next couple days are for celebrating what makes our country great outside of the most awesome sport on the planet. Fire up them hot dogs, crack open a cold one, and put on some ill fitting flag-related attire... and don’t forget your best Broncos hat.

Go Broncos!
