It's a sad day in the NFL; Al Davis has passed, even though I didn't know him personally I often told people he was my grandpa. Yes, just the mention of his name has gotten me many places in life I never would have gotten otherwise. So in commerration of Al's passing I'm only going to talk about sad things in the NFL that bother me today;
I'm sad today that we are going to have another week having to listen to anything about Tim Tebow. Poor Kyle Orton has to be laying in bed at this moment cryiing his eyes out praying to the ghost of Joe Theisman that some horrific injury will soon befall Tebow.
Im sad that Donovan McNabb hasn't had a visit from the ghost of Joe Theisman either. I've never been a McNabb fan, but I could at least respect him for his talent and his ability to leave everything he had on the field. Good quarterbacks, much like good horses, should be put down before they become a shell of their former selves; left to gimp around and make us cringe as we try to remember what they once were.
Im sad that the media isn't making an even bigger deal of Reggie Bush's failure in Miami. There's just something so glorious in seeing such a selfish egotistical prick like Bush fail miserably. It's always so nice when kharma finally catches up to people.
I'm sad that Brett Farve has to resort to dimissing Aaron Rodgers accomplishments just to get himself back in football news. Its really getting pretty desperate for attention Brett when you stoop this low.
I'm sad that David Garrad is pulling a Chad Pennington and taking a year off; lets see how good that does for his career
I'm sad that the Eagles have won one game; when are teams going to learn that loading up in the big free agent market isn't a way to win in the NFL? Hired guns just lack chemistry together; too much ego and not enough ass to cover the checks they all write.
Im sad that the Seahawks won; mostly because it means we can't simply forget about them. If they keep wining we wont be able to simply write them anymore.
It makes me sad that Pearlman will still not apologize for what he is doing to Payton's reputation. Sorry loosey piece of s%$ anyways.
