Avoid all forms of media today folks. It will only make you sick to your stomach.
Don Banks is hilarious today. “He’d never admit it in a thousand NFL Sundays, but for more than a few years now Tom Brady has chafed at the only slight he feels he’s endured throughout his illustrious eight-year career.” Brady hasn’t had the numbers to make the Pro Bowl let alone have an MVP, until now. Now we have to start lying about how good Brady was in the past?
More crap on ESPN radio. Ron Jaworski was on there praising the Patriots. Fine. They deserve it. But the first thing out of his mouth is about their run game. He loves how they are so balanced and can run between the tackles. What? They averaged less than 3 yards per carry, and until garbage time it was much worse than that.
To make matters worse (or better depending on who you are) the Hoosiers are under fire again. Kravitz is calling for Sampson’s head. I have a hard time getting too worked up about recruiting violations involving a dozen phone calls. I’m sorry, I just do. Also, I feel like the Knight-lovers just look for opportunities to whine “Knight was many things, but never a cheater!” Besides, IU did the right thing. They came down hard on Sampson. He said he would make compliance his first priority. He didn’t, and now he looks like a liar. That’s punishment enough. He is now one slip up away from the unemployment line.
Deshawn Zombie comments: Here’s one to really piss you off. The editor of NFL.com has basically said it’s foolish to think the Colts can beat the Pats. Yikes.
Also, the Jags have already been thinking about this week’s game.
