The 15th overall pick from 2019 Dwayne Haskins had a promising first year and a disastrous second year as a QB for the Washington Football Team

Weeks after the Football Team waived him, the Steelers jumped in and signed Dwayne Haskins to a one-year deal

The Steelers have gambled on promising QBs with behavior issues in the past such as Byron Leftwich and Michael Vick. Haskins has a high ceiling but remains a major wild card

With Big Ben's career winding down or even ending, the Steelers need depth at QB. Mason Rudolph and Josh Dobbs are the only other QBs on the roster now

The bare minimum you can pay to get into Arrowhead Stadium for the Bills-Chiefs AFC Championship game on Sunday is $890. The average ticket price is $1,332

Arrowhead usually seats over 76,000 but officials are capping attendance at 17,000 on Sunday

The Bucs-Packers NFC Championship in Lambeau Field will accommodate only 6,500. The secondary market is barren but experts estimate that tickets would start in the low thousands

The limited supply of tickets combined with the intrigue surrounding these heavyweight matchups is a sure formula for pricey tickets

Three months ago, if you were to have named the three biggest stars in Houston, you probably would've said James Harden, Deshaun Watson, and Russell Westbrook (maybe baseball snobs would've thrown in Justin Verlander)

In early December, Russell Westbrook was the first to leave H-Town as he pushed for a trade that sent him to Washington

More recently, James Harden finally got his wish to leave the Rockets when the Nets acquired him for four first-round draft picks & more

Now it appears that Houston could lose its NFL superstar QB Deshaun Watson who wants to get the hell out of H-Town too

Dr. Anthony Fauci recently told Matthew McConaughey on his podcast that he merely "lives on a government salary." What Fauci didn't mentioned is that his is the highest salary in the entire federal government

In 2019, the last year for which federal salaries are available, Fauci raked in over $417,000. President Trump, on the other hand, earned $400,000 (all of which he donated)

Vice President Pence must've had an inferiority complex around Dr. Fauci since he pulled in a mere $235,000

The federal government pays 4 million employees and the controversial Coronavirus taskforce leader sat at the top of last year's ranking

Moderna announced it is developing a Covid booster shot to combat the South African strain of the coronavirus

Moderna has said that its vaccine is effective against the strain, but potentially less-so than it is against the primary coronavirus strain, especially in older people

Studies showed that the immune response to the South African variant was relatively weak, meaning people may need a booster shot for protection against it

Moderna's CEO said it is doing this "out of an abundance of caution." The timeline on the booster is not yet clear

Asked yesterday whether Americans should consider wearing two masks, Fauci suggested they should

“If you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on, it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective,” Dr. Fauci said

The CDC recommends that people wear a mask with "two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric"

New cases are falling, with average daily cases at their lowest level since early December. About 80k fewer people are contracting Covid daily than in early Jan
