Jeff Hart: Tuesday Linkfest for December 27, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: December 27, 2011
In what has seemed inevitable almost since the season began, Drew Brees broke the single season passing record last night. There are some complaints that maybe it was unsportsmanlike to run up the score on the Falcons. If the Falcons are sore about it, they’ll likely have a chance to get revenge in the first round of the playoffs. Dan Marino, on the other hand, will have to impotently seethe for the rest of his days.
Not quite as special as breaking a passing record, but still rare in its own right, here’s an appearance of a seasonal prop in a TD celebration courtesy of Pierre Thomas:
With it looking like Brees will be the quarterback with the truly historic season, Aaron Rodgers will have to content himself with this juke move that broke down two of the NFL’s best defenders. Oh, and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
With the season entering its final week and the playoff picture just about set, it’s time to fire up the coaching carousel. First up is Raheem Morris, who really doesn’t think he should be fired. There’s also a scenario worth paying attention to where Jon Gruden ends up bringing his super positive attitude to the St. Louis Rams. We’ll miss you on Monday nights, Jon!
Here’s some news that should hearten Jets fans. Despite what the Giants receiving corps might have you believe, Darrelle Revis remains the best CB in all of football.
But wait! There’s even more feel-good news for Jets fans: Mark Sanchez isn’t playing surprisingly bad this season. He’s playing PREDICTABLY bad. Don’t you guys feel better?
Finally, do you think things are awkward between Larry Fitzgerald and Early Doucet? At least it’s not as bad as Fitzgerald’s Pop Warner days, when his father wrote a series of scathing op-eds lamenting the lack of quality at QB in the 7-10 division.
