Jeff Hart: Tuesday Linkfest for March 6, 2012
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: March 06, 2012
Ever since Bounty-fest (I’m done adding “gate” to scandals, so played) broke late last week, I’ve been eagerly anticipating some of the NFL’s rogues gallery of “dirty” players weighing in. Thanks to James Harrison and Ndamukong Suh for finally breaking their silence.
Anyway, remember when bounties were just part of a charming Jimmy Johnson anecdote?
And now? Well, we’re talking about whether or not Gregg Williams could face criminal prosecution because of his actions. Can’t you just see ol’ grandma hair offering 20 cigarettes to the first lifer that can shank one of Adebisi’s crew? Yeah, me neither.
Lost in all this Bounty-bonanza discussion is the fact that Williams is actually a really mediocre coach and probably shouldn’t have a job anyway. So, the lesson to be learned here is that paying players to hurt others won’t necessarily improve their ability to defend touchdowns.
Speaking of illuminating stats, which QB leads the league in “BS Wins” over the last 10 years? Could it be anyone other than our favorite presently retired gunslinger? Of course not. He was just having fun out there.
Also having fun? Ryan Fitzpatrick. The QB celebrated the extension of wide receiver Stevie Johnson’s contract by shaving congratulations into the side of his head. Fitzpatrick also unwittingly illustrated one of my biggest fears whenever I give myself an impromptu mohawk (often): that I will accidently shave in part of a swastika.
Congratulations are also in order for Nick Mangold’s sister Holley who made the Olympic weightlifting team. According to her stats, she could actually lift her brother over her head.
Finally, I noticed in yesterday’s Linkfest that The Football Girl wants to reopen the Pandora’s Box of talking about Tim Tebow every single day. For my contribution, I bring you Access Hollywood, where they’re speculating that Tebow could be the next Bachelor. If that happens, it’d be the first contest in reality television history with virginity as the prize.
