The sudden departure of Salesforce co-CEO Keith Block shows how Marc Benioff is preparing a new generation of talent to take the reins at the cloud giant

Salesforce co-CEO Keith Block has stepped down from his role, less than 2 years after he first ascended to the role in the summer of 2018. Analysts say that it was always a strange choice for Salesforce to have a co-CEO: While they respect Block's success at the company, experts say that his lofty title didn't necessarily give him more power over the company than founder and CEO Marc Benioff, known for doing things his own way. Block's departure could clear the deck for a new generation of lea...

Chargers begin quarterback search with all options on the table

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn made the media rounds after the team long-time quarterback Philip Rivers and stressed the importance of ball security and keeping up with today’s quarterback trend. In other words, a quarterback with the opposite playing style of Rivers. It seemed Lynn was finally revealing what many have assumed — that he wants a mobile starting quarterback.

Actually, there are many reasons to anticipate a possible Stefon Diggs trade

Making too much of history can be, at times, as dangerous as failing to heed its warnings. That is to say: Presuming that something will happen again just because it has happened before is fraught with peril — just as is is believing that something that has never happened before will continue to stay dormant. Framed within the context of what Vikings GM Rick Spielman had to say about wide receiver Stefon Diggs at the Scouting Combine on Tuesday, this provides some warning not to be to carried aw...

Imperfect prospect: After historic season, focus shifts to Joe Burrow’s flaws

Give Joe Burrow credit, before the drills of the 2020 NFL scouting combine even began he'd already delivered what promises to be the week's best line. Burrow's tweet mocking the mock draft culture nearly broke the Internet on Monday. When Yahoo Sports first reported Burrow's relatively small hand size — 9 inches — he delivered a zinger into the metaphorical that doubled as a puncture wound to the draftnick's soul.

Joe Burrow gives a pretty definitive answer to whether he'd play for Bengals

Joe Burrow says he won't pull an Eli Manning (or, for older fans, a John Elway) and refuse to play for the Cincinnati Bengals. The LSU quarterback's desire to play for Cincinnati, which holds the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL draft, has been a topic the past couple weeks. It was a topic because Burrow hadn't clearly stated whether he would be happy to play for the Bengals.
