Because Sometimes a Cheap Shot is Necessary

Looks like Marvin Lewis was right on Johnny Manziel.  I’ve decided he’s lost his “Football” nickname until he can pass for 200 yards.  I know that is more than double his best game to date, but I think he can do it.  Plus, I think asking for a win or a game without an interception is too much.

Manziel feels that coming in at 7:30am everyday this week is “early” and will help his preparation.  Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and even Ben Roethlisberger can’t stop laughing.

Now that ESPN has extended Jon Gruden, I’ve realized I watch more of that channel in mute than with the sound on.

I really feel bad for Mike Tirico.

Don’t worry, Chris Berman is still the worst.

In “classy” news, Jay Cutler and the entire Chicago Bears team, found out he was benched for Jimmy Clausen through Twitter.  I really don’t know what’s worse: Cutler being benched for Clausen, finding out via social media or that anyone at the Bears still has a job.

Never mind, it must be a brilliant strategy to get the 7th pick in the draft.

Marc Trestman looks like my accountant, but who knew he got his degree from Clown College.

Black Monday is only 8 days away!

How boring is the NFL if all the weekly and pregame broadcasts focus on Manziel, Cutler and RG III?  Just to point out, all of them are on losing teams and not making the playoffs, seems like riveting programming.

I just want to remind Eagles’ fans that your team felt Mark Sanchez was a better quarterback for Chip Kelly’s system than Michael Vick.

After last night’s game versus the Chargers, why has Jim Harbaugh not taken the Michigan job yet?

At least Bowl Season has started…

Who do you have in the Little Sisters of the Poor Bowl from Haiti?

While it does give us something to watch over the Holidays, I always end up asking who are these teams and players I am watching and how did they get to a bowl game.

Urban Meyer stated that Tim Tebow wants another shot in the NFL and he feels Tebow deserves it.  Another example why Urban Meyer will never coach in the NFL…
