Jeff Hart: Wednesday Linkfest for September 14, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: September 14, 2011
Have popular adds like Cam Newton and Cadillac Williams already been snapped up on your fantasy league’s waiver wire? Maybe it’s time to look a little deeper for your fantasy team’s future savior. Let the run on Kendall Hunter begin!
Did you know this was the first week in NFL history that four quarterbacks all threw for over 400 yards? How about that the Detroit Lions are now on a five game winning streak, their longest since 1995? Get your fix of in-depth Week 1 statistical analysis over at Sports Delve.
Or, maybe you prefer to stay away from stats, thus remaining blissfully ignorant like a certain NFL owner…
Jerry Jones said Tony Romo’s Sunday night performance was one of the best he’s ever seen from the QB. And I don’t think he meant it sarcastically. Maybe an average outing in a 3-point loss really is one of Romo’s all time greatest showings. Not including hide-and-seek, of course.
The National Football Post has a detailed look at the terms of Peyton Manning’s contract and what it means for the Colts to put him on injured reserve. Spoiler alert: it’s expensive.
The Dolphins cut CB Benny Sapp after he was burned at least six times on Monday night, including on the absurd 99-yard Wes Welker Tecmo Super Bowl touchdown. This attempt at scapegoating is particularly cold-blooded considering last week Sapp accepted a $300,000 pay cut, believing it would solidify his position with the team.
Speaking of people black-balled for standing in defiance of the Patriots, a cowed Eric Mangini said that he’d like to rebuild his relationship with mentor The Hoodie. Mangini must know he’s going to be back to ball-boy sooner rather than later and he’ll need some references.
Finally, here are Week One’s best images of announcers looking like zombies. Enjoy!
