What if Brett Favre made one of those “What Should I Do?” commercials like Lebron James did?

Brett Favre vs Lebron JamesGiven his history, the world may never know for certain if Brett Favre will or will not retire, or change his mind about whatever decision he may or may not have made shortly thereafter.

But wouldn’t it be nice — wouldn’t it have been nice — if he asked the masses, sports fans, the people his actions affect the most for advice? You know, like our friend Lebron James did not so long ago?

I mean, things certainly couldn’t have gone much worse, right? Well, I’m not sure if Brett’s version would be this “penis-heavy,” but it probably should be.

All he had to do was ask, you know. Would of saved us all a lot of trouble.

Warning: If “penis” and “dick” are NSFW words where you earn your keep, then there’s some fairly NSFW language in the video

Somewhat Serious Question: Is Peyton Hillis a Top 3 Running Back in the NFL right now?

November 29, 2010

8 Comments

Define “right now” however you like, but, if only during the very moment “The Other Peyton” was bulldozing Charles Godfrey for his 3rd rushing touchdown (of the half),  I think the answer might be a resounding “yes.”

If nothing else, as Torry Holt alluded to during his brilliant color work for Fox’s Panthers-Browns broadcast, Peyton’s certainly the best back in the league that grew up wrestling wild hogs.

That’s right, America. Wild hogs. Peyton Hillis wrestled them. I’m guessing Peyton Hillis won, too.

Merciless punishing of livestock and unassuming defensive backs aside, however, is this former Arkansas Razorback really amongst the NFL’s elite at his position?   Top 5? Top 3? Hell, maybe even Top 2?

It’s certainly reasonable to suggest as much, and Frump offers some interesting statistical tidbits to stoke up the debate…after the jump.

Hitler is told about the Vikings bizarre release of Randy Moss…

November 4, 2010

I keep waiting for these Hitler videos to get old. Hasn’t happened yet (at least not for me). To be fair, this one starts off a bit slow – thought it might be the death nail – but, by the end, it’s well worth the 4 minutes. Especially the Brett Favre and Lions jokes…

Is the NFC North inept enough for the Lions to make a title challenge?

Jim Schwartz throwing the greatest challenge flag in NFL history

Jim Schwartz is certainly hoping his Lions can make a run at the playoffs

Assuming Detroit’s goal is to win the NFC North, Week 7 of the 2010 NFL season may have been the Lions most productive performance in quite some time.

Two of the Lions’ three “Norris Division” contenders getting clipped was an obvious positive, and the bye week, of course, meant Detroit was atypically safe from suffering its 6th loss of the season.

The fact that these two blessings coincided, well, again: let’s just say that, for 2.5  NFL seasons, Week 7 was about as good as it gets for the boys in Honolulu Blue.

But wait…there’s more. Let alone the losses themselves, did you happen to catch any of the Packers, Vikings, and Bears this weekend? Oh my, it wasn’t pretty.

If the Packers offense was ever on the same page, it was in different books; Brett Lorenzo Favre played about as well as he would have in a Rascal – and may have actually needed one at the end; and the Bears participated in possibly the sloppiest game in recent NFL memory, not to mention against Detroit’s Week 8 opponent, the Washington Redskins.

Combined, the three active NFC North offenses turned the ball over 11 times in Week 7, and, ultimately, one has to wonder just how capable any of them are of cementing a playoff birth anytime soon.

Enter the Detroit Lions, who, at 1-5, certainly don’t appear any more capable than the rest at first glance.  With a closer look, however, one sees that Jim Schwartz’s team might just have an outside shot at what few ever considered possible…

Brett Favre to endorse Wrangler, really tiny, jeans

May 13, 2010

We’ve all seen the Brett Favre Wrangler jeans commercial. It has a certain je ne sais quoi about it, you know? Anyway, I guess this is just a natural progression for perhaps the greatest Packer ever. Nowhere to go but up from here…

Thanks to T-Rex for the tip…

Happy Birthday, Herschel Walker: Here’s why you belong in the Hall of Fame

March 3, 2010

9 Comments

Does Herschel Walker belong in the Hall of Fame?Yes, it’s true.  Herschel Walker was born this the 3rd day of March back in 1962.  Nearly half a century later, let’s see, he’s represented the United States in the Winter Olympics; danced professional ballet; developed a successful food services enterprise; and, amongst other things,  just recently won his first MMA match.  He also dabbled in something called “Football” a bit along the way, and that’s actually what we’re focusing on today.  More specifically, why Mr. Walker’s bust should grace the hallowed halls in Canton at some point.

Yes, yes, I know.  It immediately sounds like a preposterous, if not borderline insane, suggestion, but that’s why I’m here to offer this hopefully compelling argument on Herschel’s behalf.

It might actually be more of a comparative evaluation, really.  See, I figured if I could demonstrate that Herschel was as good, better or even just comparable to an already enshrined peer that nearly no one would question is justifiably in the Hall, then one must logically accept that Walker is at least worthy of such consideration.  That said, let’s take a look at Walker’s professional career next to Tony Dorsett’s.  The results may surprise you…
