“Seinfeld” creator Larry David is easily my favorite writer, comedian and actor in Hollywood. His work with shows like “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is pure genius, but I had no idea he had such an extensive knowledge of the sport of football.
During a recent appearance on “The Rich Eisen Podcast,” David said that any NFL teams who are looking to turn their struggles around should consider giving him a call.
“If they gave me a chance, I could turn the fortunes of an NFL team around,” David said. “There’s no doubt in my mind. I write stories, so why couldn’t I draw up a play? What’s harder? I think a lot of writers could be offensive coordinators. I know I could do it.”
For starters, he said he wouldn’t do things like take a knee at the end of regulation to force overtime when there is still time on the clock. In particular, he thought the Denver Broncos were idiotic for doing so against the Baltimore Ravens last season.
