Jeff Hart: Tuesday Linkfest for November 15, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: November 15, 2011
How serious did the Packers need to take the Vikings last night? I’ll let Jermichael Finley and his pregame pedicure answer that question.
Last night’s game might have been a laugher, but there’s still plenty of interesting fallout from Sunday. For starters, and I haven’t checked my statistics on this yet, but I believe something like 70% of NFL players picked up season ending injuries over the weekend. Better get on that waiver wire, fantasy nerds.
It was an exceptionally profane weekend for the NFL. Well, at least for Sunday Night Football. First, check out Rex Ryan cursing at a smart aleck Patriots fan during halftime. Awesome, right? The NFL should let this go; it’s all in the game. As a former Bills season ticket holder with tunnel seats, this is why you buy those tickets. Jim Mora Jr once told me to go “love” myself, and it was everything I dreamed it would be. Ahh, memories.
Anyway, not to be outdone, The Hoodie upped the naughty language in postgame comments regarding the Jets defense. You just have to win at everything, don’t you Bill?
Also from the Patriots/Jets game, it appears the profanities of seasons past have become water under the bridge for Tom Brady and Antonio Cromartie. Maybe Antonio really appreciated those nine pairs of kids’ size Uggs that Brady sent him as a peace offering.
Here’s an F-bomb involving neither the Patriots nor the Jets. Listen as analyst (I use that term loosely) Deion Sanders repurposes some old Nate Dogg lyrics to celebrate a Devin Hester punt return.
Just a reminder for everyone getting fined as a result of this weekend’s hijinks: your teammates aren’t allowed to chip in. Just ask Jay Cutler, who got his spot blown up by some narc reporters after promising to pay Earl Bennett’s fine.
Profanity, orange-colored cleats, Marshawn Lynch’s ridiculous deke move. Only one thing on that list should be illegal. (Poor Ray Lewis.)
Oh, and it might not technically be a profanity, but Andy Reid claiming he’s still the best person to lead the Eagles is equally vulgar. Come season’s end, Reid is going to be SOL.
