Jeff Hart: Thursday Linkfest for October 27, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: October 27, 2011
Interested in mic’d up footage of Matt Forte speaking with a bad British accident and calling his offensive linemen “blokes”? Of course you are.
In surprising news, Terrell Owens received an offer to play football less than 24 hours after his reality show friendly workout. Granted, the offer was from the Arena League’s Chicago Rush, but it’s still a step in the right direction. Personally, I think Owens should pass – not because the AFL is beneath him, but because I don’t think he has the speed to make an impact there.
In related fall from grace news, here’s a cruel (but funny) graphic and “news” story about Donavon McNabb’s removal as Vikings starting QB.
Inevitably, over the course of every NFL season, we must ask ourselves: “what is wrong with (insert QB)?” Being overanalyzed today: Josh Freeman and Philip Rivers.
What is wrong with Josh Freeman? Apparently, his offensive coordinator doesn’t trust him to throw downfield. Joe Bucs Fan can’t help but look for a silver lining (Freeman is young), but that he now leads the league in INTs has to be dispiriting.
What is wrong with Philip Rivers? Dude has six kids. SIX KIDS. I mean, it could also be the loss of Darren Sproles and the nagging Antonio Gates injury disrupting the Chargers offense, but I’m going with the kids. Can you imagine how hard it must be to memorize a playbook or study game film with six dumb babies babbling at you? To illustrate this point, here’s an image I found when Googling “Phillip Rivers + baby” (original source here).
Get that mic out of his face, baby! He’s got an offense to run!
In sad news, Chris Cooley has likely written his last blog post and kilned his final pottery as a player for the Washington Redskins.
Lastly, the Raiders have traded away five of their draft picks for next year. While that might seem like a recipe for disaster, one writer argues that Oakland’s pantry is well-stocked. Just not with Campbells.
