I still think the point LdT is getting most flak for is his demeanor while sitting on the bench. If he can't play, so be it...then the 90% assessment was either wrong or intentional misinformation to throw the Pats off, but once you're ruled out, at least cheer your teammates on.

What Davis said :
Quote:
People say, 'Why wasn't he up talking to Turner or speaking to the running backs trying to give people insight on what he saw from the sideline and trying to encourage people? That's not L.T.'s role. L.T. has been a leader because he's been doing it on the field.
thats all well and good, he doesn't necessarily have to lend insight, but sitting and sulking with his dark visor on (and there were many many shots of him, and he never wavered from the spot on the bench or posture, and that was confirmed by folks in the stands, he sat there the entire time) makes him look like a baby who doesn't have his teammates' backs...not a good image.
At least pay attention and cheer your comrades on.

this is the key statement in the entire article and in my entire argument. if you're the best player on the team, it IS your role, wether you like it or not.

so even if he was absolutely unable to go... he still let his team down. when you put yourself out there as the face of the franchise... call out other teams and coaches over what you feel was them being disrespectful... that makes you the leader of the team. act like it.

So there's this quarterback, right? He's from the South, and he becomes a star in the SEC. There's a lot of hype about him coming out of college, and after a lot of fanfare, he winds up in the Big Apple, where he's expecting to revive a failing team.

Immediately, there are problems: the media is all over him, a lot of his teammates don't like him, and the fans...oh, the fans. Every week there are questions about his ability, his maturity, and, more than anything else, his ability to be a leader of men.

And things aren't going great on the field, either, for the first few seasons. A great performance is followed up by a terrible one. He leads the league in interceptions twice in his first three seasons. Coming into his fourth season, a lot of people have had enough, and even his supporters are starting to question him.

Then, something happens in his fourth season. But not at first - for most of the season, it's the same problems as before. But, somehow, when his team needs big performances late, he gives it to them. Then, the playoffs come and he's brilliant - almost a different quarterback. The two-headed monster at running back is working, and he's the one pulling the strings. There's a confidence in his gaze and his stride that no one has ever seen before. His teammates see this and feed off of it - suddenly, he's their guy, and they'll run through walls for him.

And so he leads his team into the Super Bowl, where he faces unbelievable odds, against a seemingly invincible coach. And you know what? He wins that game, and in doing so becomes a legend.

Who am I talking about? If you said "Eli Manning," go stab yourself in the face with an ice pick. He hasn't led the league in INTs twice - just this season. I'm talking about Broadway Joe himself.

Yes, I'm comparing this guy:



...to this guy:



...and I'm aware of how insane that seems. But the facts are the facts, and the similarities between Eli Manning as he prepares for the Super Bowl and Joe Namath ahead of Super Bowl III are kind of eerie. Look at their numbers through their first four seasons:

Namath: 55 G, 50.0 Pct., 12,753 YD, 78 TD, 87 INT
E. Manning: 57 G, 54.7 Pct., 11,385 YD, 77 TD, 64 INT

Of course Namath won the Super Bowl.
We'll have to wait and see on Eli.

Does Eli own any fur coats?

I found the following Super Bowl prop bets online:

Will the Patriots score in every quarter?

Betonline.com Yes +140
Thegreek.com No +100

Will the Giants score in every quarter?

Betonline.com Yes +220
Thegreek.com No -155

The jersey # of the first player to score

Betonline.com Odd -280
Thegreek.com Even +380

I like free monies.

Quote:

The immutable insanity of ‘Iggles’ fans is legendary
By Ed Hardiman
Philidelphia Eagles Fans


They are legends passed from father to son across the NFL. The bogeymen of football. They pelt Santa with snowballs. They cheer when other team’s players get injured. Eagles fans: Love them or hate them, they are the Cadillac of NFL fans.

You don’t wear another team’s jersey to Lincoln Financial Field. If you do, Eagles fans heckle it off your back or dump perfectly warm $8 beers on you. They have ushers repeatedly check your ticket until you get the hint and move to another seat, preferably in another stadium. When you walk through the parking lot, the tailgaters’ roar drops to a whisper as you pass. The hair on the back of your neck stands the entire game.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, I assume every stadium has a 700 level — the Philly equivalent of “Lord of the Flies” with beer — and if you lack common sense and insist on wearing the opposing team’s colors, you deserve the world-class beat-down coming your way.

In 1983 Chief Zee, the unofficial Redskins mascot, went to Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium for a “Monday Night Football” game dressed in full Indian regalia. He left stripped to his underwear, with a smashed eye and a broken leg.

The following season, the Eagles invited him back to apologize. Eagles fans abused him again. One old lady told him he had a lot of nerve going up there, threw her drink in his face and said, “We mugged the guy who dressed like that last year!”

December 15, 1968: Frank Olivo wears a Santa suit to the last Eagles home game. The Eagles ask him to replace a hired Santa stranded by a snowstorm. Olivo runs downfield while boos and a fusillade of snowballs erupt from a crowd of 54,535. It is no big deal. Local sports writers ignore it, but Howard Cosell broadcasts it on his national sports show. An urban legend is born. Eagles fans: They boo Santa Claus.

December 10, 1989: After accusing the Eagles of putting bounties on his players, Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson is pelted with snowballs by fans, and police must escort him out of Veterans Stadium. One of the alleged participants is rabid Eagles fan and current governor of Pennsylvania, Ed Rendell.

October 10, 1999: Michael Irvin suffers a career-ending injury and is carted off to the cheers of a minority of Eagles fans at the Vet. ESPN’s Rich Eisen characterizes it as 66,000 screaming fans reaching a crescendo as the ambulance leaves. The number of cheering fans grows with every succeeding year.

Iggles fans, as it’s spelled by those who know, will never change. They are immutable. In 2005, ESPN's Brian Murphy called Eagles fans "the most neurotic, insane, comedic group of fans you will ever see outside of a 'Cops' episode." Thanks Brian, I couldn’t have said it any better.

I can't tell if that guy was talking about how exxagerated they all are (which would be true) or if he was honestly coming at Philly fans.

Either way, it has been exxagerated, the nuts are the same minority of nuts every team has, and I wasn't at any of those games.

Sue me.

Dude, wikipedia says Brett Favre has a small penis. MUST POST ARTICLE.

I don't know about the accuracy of the claims regarding the size of Brett's little Lambeau Log, but I would dispute that it's a well-known fact. I've watched a lot of John Madden-called games, and read a ton of Peter King columns, and never once has either of them mentioned it.


This, my friends, is how you pass the time during the week before the Super Bowl.
