Jeff Hart: Friday Linkfest for May 25, 2012
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: May 25, 2012
We now bring you an impassioned plea from the NFL’s most popular WR to only have 15 catches last year, Chad Ochocinco, who is really sad all those lemon loaves he’s purchased are for nothing. (Warning, delicate readers: some swears.)
Rest easy knowing that Ocho’s wallet was later recovered from a dumpster (sans Starbucks card, unfortunately).
Also found in a dumpster once? Lawrence Taylor. If rumors are to be believed, the troubled former Giants star’s recently auctioned Super Bowl ring was purchased by troubled former meme Charlie Sheen. Oh the places you’ll go, little Super Bowl ring.
Moving on to Tim Tebow news, the fourth best QB in New Jersey (David Carr still backs up Eli, right?) threw a pair of interceptions at practice yesterday which is just something that begs to be broken down and overanalyzed. Mark Sanchez’s agent probably doesn’t think so.
Anyway, statistics don’t matter, right Alex Smith? The 49ers QB became testy when asked about his 29th rated pass attack, proceeding to take shots at Cam Newton and Drew Brees whose amazing passing stats did not earn them the privilege of losing the NFC Championship.
Alex Smith might not care about numbers, but Jon Kitna does. He’s a high school math teacher now.
It’s telling that I worked my way around to mentioning the retired Kitna before I got to news of the still active David Garrard. He’s on the Dolphins now, FYI. And he’s coming for that starting job! Watch out… um… Matt Moore? Hottest QB controversy of the off-season right here.
And finally, Jim Brown clarified his draft day assessment of Trent Richardson as “ordinary” by calling the rookie “nothing special” and “not outstanding.” Don’t get discouraged, Trent. When this is your barometer for outstanding, it’s pretty hard to measure up:
Plus, Grandma Ida paid a visit to Ray Rice; are the 49ers overhyped; and Jay Z hires a female football agent. ...Read More05-21-2013 | Comments (0)

Will Darrelle Revis play all 16 games? Will Percy Harvin end the season with 1000 yards? Go ahead and place some fake bets. We did. ...Read More05-17-2013 | Comments (0)
