McNabb: Who knew?

18 Nov

dmac.jpgPhiladelphia Eagles fans have reason to be concerned this morning. After Sunday’s 13-13 tie against the listless Cincinnati Bengals, Donovan McNabb told reporters that he didn’t even know ties were an option in the NFL (full story). With that startling revelation, we decided to educate the veteran quarterback on a few other football rules that he may not be aware of:

  • Extra points, which occur after scoring a touchdown, count for one (1) point.
  • 6+1=7, also known as a touchdown plus extra point.
  • When it’s 1st and 10, your team needs 10 yards for a first down (new set of downs).
  • The team with the most points at the end of the game is declared the winner.
  • The Super Bowl is the championship game. Its intensity can cause a quarterback to choke under pressure… oh wait, he already knows that.

Why Carson Palmers agent was fired

Bad Endorsements Palmer.jpgTwo questions: Who wears eye black and dresses their sausage links with mustard to look like the laces of a football? Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer, that’s who. You have a problem with that? Take a look at the fierceness glaring at you in that photo and you might want to rethink your position. Go on, look at him in all his meanness. He’d crush you like he crushes his John Morrell sausages.  

But all kidding aside, besides looking as tough as Prince in that pic, there’s something else about this — the slogan: “GO Long…er!” It’s an awful play on words, just dreadful in an editorial and creative sense. If you ask us, Palmer and his reps certainly fumbled the snap when choosing to endorse this product.
