Jeff Hart: Monday Linkfest for December 5, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: December 05, 2011
Perhaps wanting to take some of the December pressure off QB Tony Romo, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett coached his team to a loss yesterday against the Arizona Cardinals. It’s successfully icing his own kicker that’s getting Garrett most of his bad press this morning – even though icing the kicker actually improves a kicker’s success rate – but it’s really the clock management leading up to the field goal that should have Dallas fans stomping on their silly hats.
Meanwhile, in awesome coaching decisions, Bucs coach Raheem Morris sent DT Brian Price home following a personal foul call. Not just back to the locker room – home. Like, get your stuff, get in your car, see ya Monday. Raheem explains:
Also getting sent home yesterday? Serial face-puncher Richard Seymour. Did he deserve to be ejected for what barely looks like a swing? Or is this another case of flag-happy refs using player profiling to make their calls easier? Just be grateful that Seymour’s latest incident has led to this amazing clip resurfacing.
Tebow led another rally yesterday, this time with his arm. However, it isn’t so much the content of the story that’s important here as it is Shutdown Corner’s method of delivery.
Ndamukong Suh celebrated the beginning of his suspension by wrapping his car around a telephone pole. Luckily, no one was hurt in the accident, and Suh wasn’t intoxicated. Unless you count being drunk on the potent cocktail of slow-simmering rage that fuels Suh’s every action. In that case, yeah, he was wasted.
Unemployed QB Donovan McNabb let fans know that he’s glad he wasn’t claimed off waivers. Fans responded “ditto.”
Normally, I only cover college football in these Linkfests if there’s an amazingly athletic play or if Gus Johnson blows his top. Guess what this last video is? Perfect storm.
