Jeff Hart: Monday Linkfest for January 9, 2012
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: January 09, 2012
If you’re going to bow out of the playoffs, at least go out in style:
Big Ben was sent to the off-season early thanks to more late game heroics from Tim Tebow, who I’ll be writing about exclusively as soon as this paragraph is over, just hold on a second. During this off-season, Roethlisberger plans to rehab his ankle, go for some motorcycle rides, and moonlight as muscle for Two-Face.
Alright, it’s Tebow Time! Let’s celebrate Tebow’s football excellence with an article about his suckiness as a Christian. Maybe Tebow just isn’t a big fan of the Sermon on the Mount.
More importantly, it’s time to start anticipating GOOD VS EVIL II: THE RECKONING, wherein Tebow seeks vengeance against the New England Patriots. But this time, the Patriots have a secret weapon in Josh “Judas” McDaniels. Will Tebow be able to overcome the man that was martyred for drafting him? Oh the drama!
One more note from Broncos/Steelers before I move on to the less interesting wildcard games. This James Harrison hit on Eric Decker is already being described as dirty. That begs the questions: where is it safe to hit another human being and shouldn’t tackling just be outlawed entirely?
Following the loss to the Saints, Lions CB Aaron Berry told his unruly Twitter followers that they could go back to being broke and miserable. He later apologized, tweeting that it’s “disgusting” how people get when “they don’t know nothing at all.” Berry, of course, was referring to the haters that fired him up, not to himself.
In other regrettable proclamations, Jason Pierre-Paul guaranteed victory for the Giants against the Packers. Should a victory over Atlanta, a team that appears to be in the midst of a serious backslide, really be the source of such confidence?
Finally, in the only non-playoff story worth reporting on, Warren Moon called Dez Bryant a “knucklehead.” Hard journalism right there.
