Heinz ad wants to turn Monday after Super Bowl into holiday

Coming into the season and at the start of the year, Kizer appeared to be a lock for a first-round pick and boasted maybe the most pro-ready anticipation and mechanics of any quarterback prospect since Jameis Winston. But his fundamentals and confidence were shaken during his final season, and his late-game woes gave NFL teams concerns about his ability to be a franchise quarterback.

Additionally, coach Brian Kelly didn’t seem to give Kizer a vote of confidence during Notre Dame’s tumultuous season, and NFL teams may be more concerned about Kizer’s mental and leadership makeup rather than his on-field upside. If he can pass the interview tests with NFL teams at the Combine, he could rise again to the first round.

The Monday that follows Super Bowl Sunday is no doubt a rough one for sports fans, that’s why Heinz wants to turn the day, aka “Smunday,” into a national holiday.

Check out the commercial making the case for the move:

The Broncos reportedly are Romo’s preferred team. Will their GM John Elway think lightning can strike twice with another successful signing of an oft-injured vet? It worked with Manning, who led Denver to offensive juggernaut status in his first three seasons there.

Elway would have to put last year’s starter Trevor Siemian and 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch in backup roles behind Romo, and he’d have to beef up the pass protection after a season in which the Broncos allowed 40 sacks, ninth most in the NFL. Romo would not last behind that kind of protection, but he at least would have quality receivers with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. The Broncos’ 27th-ranked running game also would need a boost to keep defenses from teeing off on Romo.

If Elway takes a chance on Romo, I think he’ll regret it. This is not Manning we’re talking about.
