We all saw it. Brett Favre: Knee Hunter. Whether it was an intentional (foul?) shot at the knees or not, it looked plenty dirty, and in today’s knee-jerk world, that’s almost enough for a guilty verdict, regardless of Favre’s history of non-dirty play. For what it’s worth, Favre did apologize after the game, although, I think his words might have fallen on deaf ears, at least in regards to the player Favre went unnecessarily low on, Eugene Wilson.
“I don’t have too much to say about it,” Wilson said. “I didn’t speak to him about it, to see if it was on purpose or not.” Asked what he would say to Favre, Wilson said: “What was up with that? Seriously, what was up with that?” Wilson then admitted that the conversation wouldn’t have been that cordial. “I’m being a little nicer than I probably would’ve been out there if I spoke to him,” he said.
Wilson said he thinks his knee will be OK and that it doesn’t appear to be too serious right now. Asked if he wanted to return and take a shot at Favre, Wilson responded: “No comment.”
That “no comment” sounds an awful lot like a “yes” to me.
T.O.’s toe is feeling better, but because he’ll be missing the Buffalo Bills preseason game against Pittsburgh, he’s offering his services to his old team, via Twitter, of course. Now, while I’m sure the sentiment about filling for Roy Williams is appreciated, you have to believe if Tony Romo saw this, his first reaction would be involuntary regurgitation, followed by him blaming Jessica Simpson for everything.
And apparently, we are all just living in it. Has your Vick/Eagles jersey arrived yet? Worry not. Just throw on an old Falcons jersey of his. Straight Cash Homey won’t mind at all. As with anything as polarizing as Michael Vick, there are a variety of opinions on his debut against the Jaguars.
First off, I know it’s not called a “Jumbotron,” but the it fits for title purposes. Moving on: The Dallas Cowboys new stadium is a testament to the “Everything is Bigger in Texas” motto. In fact, the stadium puts the saying into action with its massive high definition video monitor. However, besides being on the cutting edge for high-def monitors, the digital overhang is also serves another, previously-undisclosed purpose — an obstacle for punters to avoid. By now, you’ve probably heard about the Dallas/Tennessee preseason game that saw the Titans punter hit the high-def monstrosity, if not, watch the video. Naturally, whenever something blame-worthy happens in Dallas, now that Terrell Owens is gone, the blame falls directly on Jerry Jones.
Whether he’s kicking unexpected extra points — well, I might add — teaching us how to say “f**k you” to folks without actually insulting them, or seeking financial advice from head coaches, one thing’s pretty clear: It’s Ocho’s world and we are merely observers put here to chronicle his activities. About the extra point. Cincinnati only carries one kicker on their roster, Shayne Graham, who was nursing an groin injury. Therefore, after Chris Henry’s go-ahead touchdown, the Bengals needed someone to kick the extra point. Enter Chad Ochocinco, who, can apparently do it all.
Are you one of the NFL fans who’s been caught by the single game/forced preseason football ticket purchase? Do you have any preseason tickets lying around, courtesy of perhaps a season ticket holder benefit you don’t plan on using? Do you feel like doing something charitable?
