Jeff Hart: Monday Linkfest for December 12, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: December 12, 2011
Are you still looking for that perfect Christmas card to send out to your friends and family this holiday season? Well, look no further than this $15 card depicting Broncos QB Tim Tebow praying over a baby doing the wave.
Don’t celebrate Christmas? Oh, you must be some kind of heathen, just like those Chicago Bears. After collapsing at the end of yesterday’s game, the Bears defense poopoo’d the latest miracle performed by The Chosen One. I guess no one told Brian Urlacher and company what is the appropriate response to a Tebow comeback.
With the Bears laid low, Tebow moves onto his biggest challenge yet: noted mega-sinner Tom Brady and his Lucifer-like overlord The Hoodie. Hopefully Brady and his offensive coordinator can reconcile before this weekend’s rapture.
The Patriots will be rolling into Denver with a record-setting TE and a WR ranked #2 in this highly complicated wide receiver plus/minus stat algorithm.
There’s still no statistical measurement to tell us just how dirty an NFL player is – stat geniuses, please look into this – but if we take the word of Titans WR Nate Washington, then Roman Harper would definitely be at the top of the rankings.
Of course, any measurement of a player’s dirtiness would need to involve how often they’re flagged, which would make the stat inherently corrupt considering the shaky officiating we’ve witnessed all season. Yesterday was no exception – from excessive flag throwing and posturing to bad calls protecting valued players, it was another bad day for the NFL’s refs.
Finally, here’s an interesting profile on what retired RB Warrick Dunn has been doing since he left football. (Answer: he never really left.)
