Jeff Hart: Monday Linkfest for October 24, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: October 24, 2011
Yesterday’s games featured some brilliant rushing performances, but there was no single run better than this Matt Forte 32-yard TD jaunt. Rest assured that any time two defenders crash into each other like the Beagle Brothers in Duck Tales, I’ll be bringing you video.
A look at yesterday’s NFL broadcast map reveals the influence of John Beck. The BYU grad’s debut was broadcast in Utah despite not being FOX’s featured early game. If the networks are basing broadcasting decisions on the popularity of the QB’s religion, shouldn’t most of this country (sorry, coastal cities) have been afflicted with yesterday’s unwatchable Dolphins/Broncos game?
Don’t expect the Tebow talk to die down this week. A miraculous fourth quarter comeback by the QB likely makes up for the rest of his mediocre performance, or at least gives us another week of heated debates and increased pageviews. Don’t forget to get your Tim Tebow pumpkin just in time to celebrate Satan’s favorite holiday!
Reggie Bush was understandably frustrated after the Dolphins blew what would have been their first win. Former Dolphin Randy McMichael was also in the mood to complain, throwing his teammates under the bus while simultaneously diminishing the Jets secondary, after the Chargers failed to hold on to a lead.
However, the most post-game vitriol was reserved for the Detroit Lions. The Falcons complained that Ndamukong Suh and Cliff Avril taunted (and possibly “kicked” – metaphorically?) Matt Ryan while he was down after having his ankle gruesomely stepped on by one of his linemen. I guess we need to have another conversation about Suh being a dirty player. This extends Detroit’s streak of post-game controversies to two weeks. Let’s hope they keep it going!
Finally, does anyone else think that the Saints’ unreal 62 point performance last night might have anything to do with this alien spaceship landing at the Superdome?
