Monday morning - worse than usual

Avoid all forms of media today folks. It will only make you sick to your stomach.

Don Banks is hilarious today. "He'd never admit it in a thousand NFL Sundays, but for more than a few years now Tom Brady has chafed at the only slight he feels he's endured throughout his illustrious eight-year career." Brady hasn't had the numbers to make the Pro Bowl let alone have an MVP, until now. Now we have to start lying about how good Brady was in the past?

More crap on ESPN radio. Ron Jaworski was on there praising the Patriots. Fine. They deserve it. But the first thing out of his mouth is about their run game. He loves how they are so balanced and can run between the tackles. What? They averaged less than 3 yards per carry, and until garbage time it was much worse than that.

To make matters worse (or better depending on who you are) the Hoosiers are under fire again. Kravitz is calling for Sampson's head. I have a hard time getting too worked up about recruiting violations involving a dozen phone calls. I'm sorry, I just do. Also, I feel like the Knight-lovers just look for opportunities to whine "Knight was many things, but never a cheater!" Besides, IU did the right thing. They came down hard on Sampson. He said he would make compliance his first priority. He didn't, and now he looks like a liar. That's punishment enough. He is now one slip up away from the unemployment line.

Deshawn Zombie comments: Here's one to really piss you off. The editor of has basically said it's foolish to think the Colts can beat the Pats. Yikes.

Also, the Jags have already been thinking about this week's game.

Len P can't even get basic facts right:

Jacksonville is the last team to defeat the defending Super Bowl XLI champions, whipping the Colts here 44-17 on Dec. 10, 2006, a meeting in which the Jaguars shredded Indianapolis for 375 rushing yards. Indianapolis has won a dozen straight games since, including a Super Bowl victory over the Chicago Bears.

Umm...the Texans beat the Colts later than that - the horrid "Ron Dayne" game.

I was in Vermont and Connecticut over the weekend. People seem to think the NFL should just cut the season short and give the trophy to the Pats right now (which might be worth it to see Packers and Cowboys fans put aside their differences to burn down NFL headquarters...).

Also Tom Brady, who is better than Staubach, Montana, and Favre put together, should get league MVP, Poet Laureate, Best Actor in a Dramatic Series, Nobel Peace Prize, President of the U.S., and Catholic sainthood.

Leaves were pretty, though.
