Jeff Hart: Monday Linkfest for October 31, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: October 31, 2011
After Tebowing took the internet by storm last week, you had to know that this was coming.
The Lions defensive line probably had some kind of wager going as to who could Tebow over Tebow’s lifeless body first. Congratulations, Stephen Tulloch! You’re the Pontius Pilate of pass rushing. But enough about Tebow. It just feels like piling on at this point. I mean, imagine how the dude with this tattoo feels this morning…
Anyway, Tebow is an easy target in a league that, after yesterday’s action, is practically full of them. Take the case of Brandon Marshall, who followed up his promise to be ejected of a few weeks ago with a guarantee of victory over the Giants. Didn’t happen. Just keep making predictions, Marshall. You couldn’t possibly be wrong 16 weeks in a row, right?
Also being mocked this morning? Chris Johnson. The RB finally set the fantasy world aflame yesterday, but only because so many fair-weather Titans fans rushed to the waiver wire to put in a claim on Javon Ringer.
Not wanting to limit the nation’s targets for disdain only to active players, Jimmy Johnson said he’d rather be shot in the head than sign Terrell Owens or Tiki Barber to his hypothetical team. I get that same urge for self-harm every time I watch the FOX pregame show. If it does happen, coach, please make sure to line up Terry with the exit wound.
Meanwhile, a coach-turned-broadcaster whose continued existence some people actually care about, Bill Cowher claimed yesterday that he has no plans to return to coaching next year. As a result, Brandon Marshall hastily tweeted about Cowher joining the Dolphins.
Here are those passionate Toronto fans that Buffalo’s George Wilson was complaining about last week. Look at what a fun Canadian time everyone is having!
Finally, because the only thing we football bloggers enjoy more than Tebow jokes and Marshall gaffes are unsanctioned fisticuffs, here’s video of the Percy Harvin/Captain Munnerlyn scuffle.
