Gotta Come Clean

Thanks to the nephew I got a chance to see the first half of the ‘Pokes – Packers game (How can Time-Warner rationalize making the NFL Network a premium channel?). I’m lovin’ the Favre revival – he is still my favorite player in the league. Something strange happened along the way: I have started to appreciate Terrell Owens.

Don’t know how this happened, but I figured I’d better let everybody know. Still can’t stand the antics – what is the purpose of the popcorn act. (I know professional sports are entertainment; I just think the game is entertainment enough without the frivolous props and acts.) If T.O. could keep his trap shut, he could be as good as…as…Jerry Rice?

Another thing I need to come clean on – Deion Sanders as a sideline reporter? Wow! I have had zero patience for the groupies with mikes and a camera, but ‘Neon’ added something to the game. Yeah – that’s right the defensive player who would never dish out a hit or run to the sideline quicker than anyone when someone tried to hit him – I’m giving him props. His narration of the problems faced by the Packer secondary helped the broadcast.

I don’t know what is going on with me? T.O. and ‘Neon’ – never thought I’d write a post giving them props.

    There is nothing wrong with TO, He never was a big deal until he ran into the EGO MANIAC McNabb.

    TO had a big mouth but his teammates always respected him because what he did on the field.

    Ive always said you can hate everybody off the field but you must love them between the lines. That means leaving your ego in the locker room, when TO was in Philly, McNabb caused the stir. I could go on and on, but who do you think the eagles would rather have right now, McGag or TO???????

    Neon Deon is like the Dicky V for the NFL.

    Fisher was absolutely pounded the score could have been 75-10 if union wanted to.

    I was very disappointed at the lack of respect Wide Out Corey Jackson showed at the end of the game. With three minutes remaing he caught a tipped pass in the endzone on his back. He then ran to the MT. Union Band Section, grabbed two drumsticks and started banging on the bass drum. He was flagged for a fifteen yarder and then kept off the field. This made me sick, fisher was down 42 POINTS IN THE FOURTH QUARTER.

    Maybe a product of too much TV.

    I know TO has an ego, but he will put it aside to win

    Funny how three former Cowboys have become good very good reporters/analysts. Darryl Johnston, Aikman and Neon are making the games that much more enjoyable to watch.
