Audibles From the Long Snapper: Lions Fan, Trestman's Candor, Bar Audio Replay...
THIS LIONS FAN WAS ENJOYABLE If NFL Network just scrapped their unbearably awful programming and aired thirty-two videos like this on Monday, wouldn’t be a far more popular network? It’s fun to watch a fan start by telling us he’s not upset and then slowly watch him descend into madness. ___________________________________________ STUPID SPORTS MOTIVATIONAL TWEET... Read more »

Audibles From the Long Snapper

Memo to Chicago Media: Fire Yourself.

Quick vent. Rick Morrissey was always ready to kill Kyle Orton, Bears quarterback.  Now he’s singing the praises of John Elway Jr. and the 5-0 Denver Broncos.  The truth is if the Bears’ defense had not collapsed in 2008, the Bears would have opened 5-0.  If they didn’t suffer the sadness in Atlanta a few...

Morrissey, Marinelli & More (actually that's it)

Rick Morrissey Has Become Unreadable Rick Morrissey wrote, just two weeks ago, that someone needed to tell Jay Cutler to “wise up”.  It was an idiotic, knee-jerk response to one ball game and the ensuing press conference.  Now, after two wonderful performances from the future Chicago steakhouse owner, Morrissey isn’t saying he was wrong.  He’s...
