Jerry Jones. Is there another owner in sports who puts himself more in the limelight than Jerrah? He has been nothing but a media hog since he first took over the Cowboys. This past season was not one of his finest. Two years ago he builds the Taj Mahal of sports stadiums, thinking he’d be the first team to win a Super Bowl in the host city in 2011, then the roof collapses on his practice facility, then his 2011 team collapses faster than the roof, then he oversells seating at the Super Bowl nearly causing a riot and to top it off he storms out of the labor negotiations making him even more of an ogre.
Deion Sanders. I will be the first to tell you that Prime Time was one of the greatest cover corners to ever play the game and also one of the most exciting and dynamic players to ever step on the field. But now I wish he would just go be a preacher (yes I get that he would have to speak as a preacher, but unless I went to listen I wouldn’t have to hear him!), a motivational speaker or whatever he is. Dez Bryant has a ton of talent and we’ve seen countless guys like him with similar backgrounds who never realized their potential because of off the field issues, but Deion’s comments are laughable. It was Bryant’s dealings with Deion that got him into trouble with the NCAA in the first place. And maybe I’m cynical, but I am more than suspicious about “Prime” the mentor.
Brett Favre. Maybe not shut up as much as just go the hell away and never return! By far one of the most overrated players ever. Warrior – yes, talented player – yes, clutch performer – I think not. That aside, his I’m retiring (sob-sob), I’m not retiring (sob-sob), hey Jenn, here’s a photo of my wee-wee BS is so old it’s frightening. Please go back to the farm, hop on your John Deere and ride off into the sunset.
Chad Ocho Stupido. Can you name a bigger dope? Well, I imagine you can. Talk about an overrated, egotistical, clown. Now he’s Pele? For reference, Pele was a really good soccer player. His act has so worn thin. I remember watching some little news story about him and the ridiculous SUV type vehicle he purchased for himself on one of his birthdays. I think it cost like $100,000. Will anyone be shocked when they do a story at say Super Bowl 65 and there is a Chad living out of his car? It won’t be that $100,000 monstrosity, I can guarantee you that. My bet is that it’s an 89 Buick with 1 hubcap.
Rex Ryan. I know you had to be saying why did it take so long to get to Rex? Do I even have to state my reasons why Rex should be permanently gag-balled? Actually, I wouldn’t doubt if old Rex rather likes a gag-ball in his mouth. I mean first there are the photos & videos of the foot massage deal, and then there are the alleged photos of Ms. Ryan doing a little more than the feet thing. Does anyone doubt that a full rated X video is out there just waiting to be circulated? If it does and you watch it, you are one sick s.o.b. Putting the perv stuff aside, Rex continues to predict Super Bowl victories. I mean this is what, 3 years now? When does the boy stop crying wolf? He also had the audacity to compare himself to Babe Ruth. Yeah, the Bambino was fat and so are you, but that is not a comparison to brag about. I imagine the Babe was thankful there were no video phones back in the day, but unlike Rex, the Babe could point to the grandstand and park a ball there, while Rex can only point to an empty seat at Wendy’s and park his butt there.
We are a draft site but this has nothing to do with the draft. I’ll leave it up to the Bleacher Report to make up rumors about where Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert is going. With no free agency to speak of and all the lockout discussion on hold, everything has just been feeding more speculation than normal. I mean seriously, when some GM speculates their team may have an interest in this player or that payer, how do you take them seriously?
With that in mind, and being uninspired to speculate on the draft with a month to go, I thought I’d opine on five NFL folks, in no particular order of preference, I would like to permanently cease from speaking.
