Jeff Hart: Tuesday Linkfest for December 6, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: December 06, 2011
I’m really hoping this Aldon Smith sack non-celebration is a response to last week’s Bob Costas led teeth-gnashing over unnecessary player theatrics. Even if not, and it’s just some goofy inside joke Smith has with him teammates, it’s still pretty great:
Let’s get the obligatory Favre rumor out of way. The wizened Wrangler’d one has let it be known that if the Bears approached him with an offer, he would turn off the tractor and give a listen. Luckily, the Bears remain uninterested, making this as one-sided as many of Favre’s other recent courtships.
Someone that will be finding work soon? Former Titans coach Jeff Fisher. Not wanting to wait for their disappointing campaigns to end, rumor has it that two teams have already contacted Fisher. Smart money is on the Jaguars and the Chargers.
In relevant RB news, the prevailing wisdom regarding Matt Forte’s injury is that he should be in no rush to return. The Bears have to be wondering how many weeks of recovery they might have been spared if they’d hammered out a contract with Forte. Man, stories like these, they really remind you what’s magical about the NFL, right?
If you felt the internet collectively shaking with laughter yesterday, it’s because everyone was reading this Greg Couch piece on why Tim Tebow is the league’s Most Valuable Player. The article is as insane as it sounds. Who could argue with this foolproof logic? “Is Tebow more valuable to the Broncos than Rodgers is to the Packers? There is no right answer, no proof.” Okay, dude. Couch goes on to rail against stat-heads (probably because he’s unable to interpret numbers) and the youth sports system teaching that there’s only one right way to throw a football (which he describes as teaching “style over substance”). In summation, it’s the greatest piece of Tebow-trolling yet to assault the internet. Enjoy!
