Jeff Hart: Tuesday Linkfest for November 29, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: November 29, 2011
A Fort Wayne TV station opted not to show the Colts game over the weekend, instead choosing to air the Bears/Raiders game because of its more “compelling storyline.” Blackouts are one thing, but to have your team yanked from the airwaves because the affiliate doesn’t think enough people will see the local furniture ads to make it worthwhile? Yikes, things are bad. Potentially 0-16 bad, judging by the Colts schedule. Next thing you know, this kid that’s worn Colts gear every day for the last seven years is going to start broadening his wardrobe. It’s the end of an era!
Speaking of eras ending, is it really time to put Andy Reid out to pasture? I feel like we’ve been asking this question all season and the answer hasn’t changed once.
In comments that sort of echo Jake Plummer’s of a couple weeks ago, Kurt Warner advised Tim Tebow to tone down all the God stuff. Well, sort of. Warner claims that the article doesn’t accurately get across his point, which isn’t that Tebow should believe any less, but that he should be sneakier about converting the rest of us. Thanks for clearing that up, Kurt!
If you thought the Brett Favre to Houston rumors were bad, try wrapping your mind around the horrifying Jeff Garcia or Jake Delhomme reality. And right now they’d be the #1 seed in the AFC. The road to the playoffs runs through Jeff Garcia!
Ndamukong Suh reportedly called Roger Goodell to apologize for ruining the Commissioner’s Thanksgiving. Later, Goodwell was confronted with even more visual evidence that Suh is a dirty player.
Finally, in sad news, Stevie Johnson has declared that he will (probably) never celebrate another TD. This one’s for you, Stevie:
