Six NFL Figures On Top 10 Most Disliked In Sports List

I don’t think there’s any doubt that the NFL is America’s sport of choice. Anytime the Pro Bowl had numbers that competed with the MLB World Series, you know that football is king in the USA. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that while the people love the NFL, they also hate some who represent them just as much.

According to a survey done by E-Poll Market Research, 6 of the Top 10 Most Disliked Sports Figures come from… you guessed it… the NFL. Topping this year’s list was none other than Skeletor, AKA Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis. here are the 6 guys chosen to be hated by America (or at the very least, the people that were surveyed).

1. Al Davis

Why do folks dislike a guy that looks like he died 7 years ago???

2. Michael Vick

The guy did his time and even revived his football career. Can a brotha breathe???

3. Jerry Jones

I don’t care what people say about JJ, Jerry’s World is AWESOME! Y’all some haters!

6. Terrell Owens


7. Albert Haynesworth

Fat Albert has made it impossible to like him during his tenure in DC

10. Randy Moss

*wonders how many Vikings and Titans fans participated in this survey*

Honorable Un-Mentions: Brett Favre and Ben Roethlisberger. Gotta love fans of the NFL!

Video: Brett Favre’s LeBron Moment (NSFW)

Okay, so it’s not really Brett Favre. But I’ll be damned if it doesn’t look and sound a lot like #4. Someone made this video using a fake Brett, doing a spoof of the LeBron James Nike commercials. It’s pretty funny, but it’s also not a look-see if you’re at work (case in point, fake Brett asks numerous times about showcasing his man parts, the same parts that he’s allegedly shown to Jenn Sterger and calls it his Peyton Man-thing ).

The parody also touches base with just about everything else Favre related such as retirement, Wrangler jeans or just flat out being annoying.

Whoever did this gave me a good laugh for the day.

Week 17 Recap And Thoughts

Happy New Year, boys and girls!!! And then there were 12.  The regular season is over but the playoffs are just beginning. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to see the best of the best (minus the Seahawks) get ready to slug it out to see who’s gonna hold the Lombardi trophy this February. It’s a melancholy feeling, because it’s only about 4 weeks of football left, which immediately makes me sad. But then I have to remind myself that my team is in the dance.

So back to Happy Happy Joy Joy Land I go! It’s also Black Monday and by the looks of the head coaches fired in-season (4 of them, to be exact), I expect a big turnover and flip flopping of coaches to take place this week. So coaches on the chopping block, you better hide your kids, hide your wives and hide your bank accounts.. cause they firing everybody out here!

As a Ravens fan, I’m glad we’re 12-4 and in the playoffs. But I’d be lying if I told you I was confident going into Wild Card Weekend. The football gods gave us a pass and re-routed us to KC instead of Indy, who the Ravens haven’t beaten in a LOOOOOOONG time. But this team scares me. They’ve looked lost at times this season and have played along with their opponent. They took New England all the way to OT but they also did the same with the Buffalo Bills. I have no idea what team will show up come Sunday. But if it’s the team that played yesterday against the Bengals, then my squad is in trouble!!!

Brett Favre says he’s finally done with his career…. I say…..

The Raiders have become the ONLY team since the 1970 merger to sweep their division and NOT make the playoffs. On one side, you know that Oakland has something to build on for 2011 and beyond. On the other side, how can you be so awesome against your own division, but be 2-8 against everybody else? Oakland is on the rise… but they have a ways to go to get there.

Shout out to the Detroit Lions for going into the offseason with a 4-game winning streak. 6-10 is a hell of a lot better than 0-16. Baby steps, Detroit… baby steps.

S/O to the NFC West for the highway robbery of a playoff spot. Your whole division sucks, and your 7-9 NFC West champs in the Seahawks get to host a playoff game. I hope New Orleans beats you into Mortal Kombat submission as a reminder to why the NFL needs to tweak the current playoff system.

S/O to Kerry Collins for passing Johnny Unitas for passing yards all-time (11th). No, I’m serious… He did!

As for your fumble late in the 4th quarter that would’ve given you the win against Indy…..

S/O to my boo, Philip Rivers.. for just being YOU! You always have a fan in me. I’m just glad we don’t have to play you in the postseason.

If you’re Tampa Bay or the New York Giants and their fans, you’re sick as hell right now…. But at least you ended on a good note, right?!?! I’m not helping am I??? Okay, I’ll shut up now……………

12 Plays Of Xmas- 2010 NFL Edition

‘Tis the season to be jolly! The regular season is almost over, but the NFL has given us tons and tons of plays that made the 2010 season a great one. If you saw my post from last year, then you know this post is a season in the making. Will it top last year’s list? Who knows, but I sure will try in the process.

Remember, you have to know the tune to “Twelve Days of Christmas” for this to be effective. If not, either you don’t celebrate Xmas (which is cool, everything isn’t for everybody), or you simply suck at musical life. Shout out to Pigskin Loving Lady and Ed The Sports Fan for their input Enjoy!

On The 12 Plays of Xmas, that football gave to me:

Stevie Johnson’s Blaming

Moss Burning Revis!

Andre Johnson’s fighting

9’s Shoulder’s Broken

Week 8, There’s a Benching

7’s Nose Is Broken

6 Vick Scores


4 INTs

3 Hillis Scores

2 Big Returns


Happy Holidays To Everyone!

Tuesday Roundup- Week 15

If you missed last night’s Monday Night football game with the Vikings and the Bears, then you missed quite a bit. You missed Brett Favre making an unexpected return back on the field, a week after ending his 297 consecutive game streak. You missed the snowballs being thrown by the fans after the Vikings went up 7-0, early in the 1st quarter. You missed the Bears totally taking over the game after that. And you missed Favre’s head making an ugly connection with a cold, hard ground at TCF Bank Stadium. I’m sure this is common knowledge at this point, but I’ll go ahead and say it anyway: Last night was probably the last we’ve seen of Old Man Favre. Time for the Vikings to put him on IR, let him enjoy being Pop Pop for Christmas with his family, and start thinking about how many Wranglers he’s gonna sell from now on.

In addition to Favre calling it a career, the Vikings have called it a season. With the exception of Jared Allen, it seems they pretty much hung it up early, allowing Chicago to score 27 unanswered points before deciding to be a part of the game again. But the highlight of the night was Devin Hester’s 64-yard punt return for a TD.

Hester is now in the record books, as he set the NFL record with his 14th kick return touchdown. Why teams continue to kick to Hester or DeSean Jackson is beyond me, I thought we all knew by now how awesome they are on special teams.

In other news, The Chargers are thinking of putting the franchise tag on WR Vincent Jackson, Terrell Owens is done for the year with a knee injury while the Bengals said they likely won’t bring him back for the 2011 season and Cowboys QB Tony Romo may be put on IR for his shoulder injury. This just in, it’s TUESDAY and it’s 4 days until Christmas! Who the hell didn’t see any of this coming… seriously?!?!?!

And finally, I found a pretty cool video of Patriots RB and rising star Danny Woodhead, pretending to be a Modell’s employee. Woodhead is there for an hour, trying to sell his own merchandise. Some of the responses are pretty funny. But overall he sold 14 Woodhead items while he was on his “shift”. Pretty impressive for a guy that no one knew about until 2 months ago!

Week 14 Recap And Thoughts

If you had to choose one team that is playing their best football right now, who would you choose? I’m sure some would say Philly, others would say Atlanta. And while they are playing at a high level, no one…. And I mean NO ONE… Is playing better than the New England Patriots right now. The Pats have beat the breaks off of playoff contenders such as the Steelers, the Jets and now the Bears… In a way that no one else has beat those teams all year. The Patriots are in a zone and right now I think the only one who can take them out of it are themselves. It’s kinda scary…….

OT: That’s the Jay Cutler we know! Welcome back!

Can someone tell me how Brodie Croyle is still on an NFL roster??? He’s 0-10 in his career as a starter, and he was AWFUL in yesterday’s game against the Chargers, throwing for 40 yards. FORTY yards, though?!?! Matt Cassel better hurry up and get back or the Chiefs are in big doo doo with the AFC West title on the line.

The Bengals are a sad group….. But Carson Palmer is sadder. It’s unfortunate to see a guy that once competed at such a high level, now look like a shell of his former self. The Bengals have a lot of QB soul searching to do at the end of the season… Because Palmer doesn’t look like the #1 guy they once relied on.

If ever there were a play to sum up the Redskins entire season, yesterday’s botched snap for the tying extra point against the Bucs summed it up. This team needs to seriously start thinking about the future and rebuilding. They’ve inked McNabb for a new deal, but there are so many holes that needs plugging on this team. In addition to the Fat Albert controversy, there are a lot of decisions to be made this offseason. The drama in the Nation’s Capital will be must-see TV in the weeks and months after the season is over.

Just when I thought Cleveland had a chance to finish 8-8 this season and that the Bills had maxed out on their wins for the season….. They flipped the script on me.

With all of the drama going on regarding the Giants-Vikings game (the snowstorm…the time change…the Metrodome roof caving in… The lack of drawls Giants players packed for their unscheduled extended trip…and the relocation to play in Detroit), somehow this Favre Watch has still found a way to stay relevant. I can’t wait for the season to be over so this guy can go away and disappear. My betting money says he’s playing for tonight’s rescheduled game, all for selfish reasons. Everyone wanted Brad Childress fired, but they don’t have anything to say regarding the Favre dilemma??? In my mind, this whole, “Will Favre Play?” mess every week is just as much a distraction as the Chilly situation. Sit this guy, see what Tavaris Jackson can do and be done with this foolishness.

Shout out to Jets coach Sal Alosi for being the douchebag of the week. Tripping a player from an opposing team and possibly injuring him is real classy, dude.

And speaking of the Jets, watching them yesterday makes me wonder if Mark Sanchez will ever be a good QB for his respected team.  Not because I don’t think he has the ability to be, but it looks to me that the Cali boy is not a cold weather QB. And in NY, where they are infamous for below freezing temps in the winter, I’m not sure how Sanchez will hold up in November and December. The announcer of yesterday’s Dolphins-Jets game said that the Jets have lost their swagger. Maybe so, but the first person I’m taking a look into is #6.

The Jaguars look like the real deal. Jack Del Rio should be thanking the football gods every night for the 53 men that may have possibly saved his job.

The Saints have won 6 in a row, how come no one is talking about them?

Even better question… Based on all of the grey going on Saints S Roman Harper’s hair, is it safe to assume he’s Favre’s age?? He sure as hell looked like it, especially when Sam Bradford caught up with him after a turnover.

The Packers need Aaron Rodgers back… BAD!!!

DeSean Jackson’s TD celebration was awesome… but it wasn’t excessive.

The league is doing too much. With all of the helmet-to-helmet hits and other calls that needs attention, why call this one? He was clearly having fun and should have been able to celebrate, he just beat the entire Cowboys defense for 91 yards and a score. If that’s not a reason to celebrate, then I dunno what is…….

Men have groupie moments, too! After last night’s game, Cowboys RB Tashard Choice asked Eagles QB Michael Vick for an autograph on some gloves, which Vick happily obliged.

Choice later said he was getting the autograph for his nephew. I think that’s a nice gesture. Michael Vick is a great player, and being a fan of the game is nothing to be ashamed or apologetic about. So what it was on the field… and after a loss.. and at home…..and to a division rival. But you get my point. Football players are football fans, too.

The NFL Twilight Zone

I was talking to my good friend and fellow Gridiron Gal Chels about the NFL recently, and we both agreed that the NFL has been a whirlwind of news since the day it kicked off, nearly 2 months ago. New rule changes, roster changes and just about any other kind of change imaginable has swarmed headlines non-stop. Let’s take a look at the top stories that’s led us to the Twilight Zone- NFL Style.

Dallas Cowboys Stinking Up The Joint

Someone give the Dallas Cowboys the heads up that their 2010 Super Bowl run started 8.5 weeks ago. Apparently, they didn’t get the memo. This was the year that a Super Bowl team was going to have home field advantage, as Super Bowl XLV will be played at the new Cowboys Stadium this year. Well, the Cowboys are a dismal 1-6 and currently LAST in the ultra-competitive NFC East. Wade Phillips and Jason Garrett are officially on lame duck status, Tony Romo is hurt and has since been replaced by Jon Kitna (who had 4 INTs last Sunday against the Jags) and the unofficial leader on this team is rookie Dez Bryant, not a veteran player. To say the Dallas Cowboys’ 2010 season is bizarre is being nice. They are a mess, and it doesn’t look too good for them for the rest of the season.

The Randy Moss Chronicles

First, Bill Belichick sends the future Hall-Of-Famer on his merry little way to Minnesota, in exchange for a 3rd round draft pick. Many folks thought the Patriots were crazy for letting him go, but New England hasn’t missed a beat since Moss has been gone, winning every game since the trade. Moss then goes to the Vikings does what he does best…. plays when he feels like it. Moss must not have been “feeling like” playing when he returned to New England, giving up on a couple key plays as the Patriots defeated the Vikings, 28-18. What happens next is very strange. Moss’s postgame press conference became a bit of a Patriots love fest, while telling the Vikings media he was going to ask and answer his own questions.

Well, Brad Childress wasn’t a big fan of the Belichick/Patriots love fest and sent Moss his walking papers, as he was officially waived yesterday. Someone explain this to me. Childress lets Moss go without a healthy Sidney Rice and a migraine-laden Percy Harvin?! What part of the game is this? That being said, is it the teams Moss played on, or is it simply Moss that’s the issue? You be the judge.

“Baby Brett” Put On Blast

Another headline, another Viking. Brett Favre allegedly likes to send pictures of his manhood, all while leaving simping messages on voice mails on his down time during the season. We all know the allegations about Favre and his “contact” with Jenn Sterger. But I think this is more ironic because I would expect to hear about this from a 20-something year-old Favre, not a 41-year old grandpa Favre. This is a guy that is a lock for the Hall Of Fame, but a lot of folks would be lying if they said they don’t look at Favre differently. I know I do, Favre needs to sit his old azz down somewhere.

McNabb Gets Benched…. AGAIN!!!!

Oh, Donovan…………when it rains, it pours. Let’s go back to 2008, when McNabb was benched by then-Eagles coach Andy Reid for Kevin Kolb at halftime during the Ravens game. Kolb came in and did NOTHING against the Ravens, as Ed Reed intercepted the ball for a record-breaking 108-yard interception for a TD.

Well, history has a way of repeating itself. At the end of the Redskins- Lions game, McNabb was benched AGAIN, this time by Mike Shanahan and for, wait for it………………………………… Rex Grossman. So how was Grossman filling in for McNabb? Let’s see, a fumble that led to a TD for the Lions, to seal their win over the Redskins. Afterward, fans heard every excuse about his benching, from Grossman knowing the 2-minute drill a little better than McNabb, to McNabb being out-of-shape. To make matters worse, the Redskins have brought in JaMarcus Russell for a try-out while Terrell Owens has added his 2 cents to the McNabb bash fest

This is by far, one of the most bizarre events in the league right now. But what’s more bizarre is McNabb’s silence in both situations. If I’m McNabb, I’m taking the gloves off right now. He took the high road in Philly when he was benched and later traded, but for Deja vu to occur 2 years later is enough. It’s time to start speaking up for yourself, Donovan. Put people in their place when it comes to how you play the game. Otherwise, you look real sheepish right now, like you have no fight in you. Basically, you look like a PUNK. And people will only do what you allow.

Eight weeks in, and already the NFL is in a Twilight Zone….. who knows what will happen next!
