Jeff Hart: Friday Linkfest for October 14, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: October 14, 2011
In what is something of a surprise, the Broncos are reportedly shopping around WR Brandon Lloyd. Because it seems like a good idea to deal last year’s most productive WR right when a young QB is taking over, right? The worst part about this news is that it lends credence to the bizarre conspiracy theories of tinfoil hat wearing Skip Bayless.
However, we shouldn’t let these trade machinations distract us from yesterday’s most important Broncos-related story. What does Hulk Hogan think of Tim Tebow?
Checking back in on the short-lived and sparsely attended Andy Reid protest, details have emerged that it was a pair of Eagles players that requested to have the sign removed. Offensive linemen Jason Kelce and Evan Mathis described their meeting with protestors as a peaceful exchange of ideas, but John the Sign Man recalls the events in a different way. The Sign Man is now demanding a public apology.
The most impressive thing about this viral Romo-coaster segment isn’t the vast array of Marcellus Wiley facial expressions, but the fact that Trey Wingo can deliver his lines so well while being whipped around at high speeds:
What is it about Tony Romo that invites these goofball bits? Oh, by the way, here is Romo’s high school yearbook photo.
As a team, the Houston Texans make the most political campaign donations, mostly thanks to owner Robert McNair’s league leading $215,200 donated to various Republicans. There are a lot of interesting numbers over at Open Secrets, but what stands out to me isn’t the predictable swing toward Republican donations, but the generally small amounts NFL players and owners are contributing. For instance, Rodney Peete as an individual contributed more ($30,400) than 18 entire NFL franchises. Get involved, rich football players!
What’s everybody doing this weekend? I’m thinking of checking out Millenball.
