^Clarence E. Hill Jr.: Fraudulent, arrogant Cowboys guilty of sniffing themselves, now facing reality check<

FBN-HILL-COLUMN:FT _ What do you call a supposed Super Bowl contender who only have victories against the bad teams loses to the good teams?

^Sam Mellinger: These two clear trends are pushing against the Chiefs every week now<


"It's no mystery what these teams are coming in here to do," Chiefs defensive lineman Frank Clark said.

^Dave Hyde: A very real fear for Sunday _ Washington is the NFC version of the Dolphins<


Here comes a Washington team with more losses, a fired coach, a hold-out star, an angry fan base and, perhaps, no matter what they say, a rookie quarterback in reserve to offer something the Dolphins really haven't had this year:

A chance to win.

Oh, god, not that, huh?

^Marcus Hayes: Is Eagles' Derek Barnett the next Vontaze Burfict?<

^FBN-HAYES-COLUMN:PH_< It is the truest thing Jim Schwartz ever said:

"You do dumbass things, pretty soon you're going to be labeled a dumbass."

Schwartz, the Eagles' defensive coordinator, said that in 2016, after Nigel Bradham was arrested twice in 10 weeks.

The same logic applies to Schwartz's serial cheap-shot artist, defensive end Derek Barnett. If he keeps making dirty plays, he'll be labeled a dirty player.

Wednesday's games

TNS expects coverage from the following games:

New Jersey at Philadelphia, 7:30 p.m. EDT

Los Angeles at Vancouver, 10 p.m.


^Before deal to keep Preakness in Baltimore can reach finish line, it will face jostling in General Assembly<

^RAC-PREAKNESS-BALTIMORE:BZ_< While Baltimore leaders celebrate a deal to keep the Preakness Stakes in the city, tough questions await the proposal in next year's General Assembly session.

Wouldn't the money proposed to renovate the Pimlico Race Course and Laurel Park tracks be better used for teachers and schools? When will lawmakers be able to see written copies of legislation and proposed lease agreements? Why didn't Prince George's County, which has a closed horse track, have a seat at the table during negotiations?

^Dennis Anderson: Vintage duck boats add to the intrigue of the hunt<

OTD-ANDERSON-COLUMN:MS _ More lifestyle than pastime, duck hunting commands the wingshooter's attention in ways other field sports don't. Some will disagree, particularly those Minnesota waterfowlers who have grown weary of viewing mostly empty skies over their decoys, their early morning risings, they believe, having gone to waste.

Fair enough. But the fact remains that anyone who is serious about duck hunting, no matter the relative abundance of birds, is serious also about the equipment the sport requires _ equipment that in many cases qualifies as art, or at least memorabilia.

^Some Wisconsin bear hunters are seeing brazen attacks on dogs<


A college student, Rachel, 19, of Somerset, Wis., first accompanied her parents on deer hunts when she was a young girl. Her grandpa had built a cabin near Moose Junction, Wis., years ago, and it was there the family gathered in November to hunt whitetails.

"But only mature bucks," she said. "We tried to kill only older deer."

But Rachel no longer attends the family deer hunt. "It's not worth it," she said.

^Minnesota is asked to ban lead in ammo, fishing tackle<

OTD-MINNESOTA-LEAD:MS _ With mounting evidence of damage to loons, eagles and other wildlife, environmental groups are asking Minnesota to try again to outlaw or limit the use of lead in fishing gear, birdshot and rifle bullets.

Their petition, filed last month with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, would require hunters to use steel, copper or other nontoxic ammunition during all hunting seasons throughout the state. It also asks the DNR to ban lead jigs and fishing tackle from lakes that have nesting loons.

^Dennis Anderson: Abundant ruffed grouse are mostly a memory now<

OTD-ANDERSON-COLUMN-GROUSE:MS _ Hunting is a lot of things, including, these days, driving around. Or what might appear to be driving around. Bill Marchel, Rolf Moen and I were doing just that Thursday, north by northwest of Brainerd, gravel roads leading us, we hoped, to woods laden with ruffed grouse and woodcock.

We knew we would find no such woods. The grouse's 10-year population cycle is trending down.
