NFL Coaches That *Should* Be On The Hot Seat

Posted: October 29, 2012 by hofworthy in NFL, Philadelphia Eagles

#FireAndy has become one of our most used twitter hashtags, but what other coaches deserve to be there?

1. Andy Reid (1999 – present): 132-92-1 (overall records including postseason wins and losses)

2. Norv Turner (2007 – present): 52-35

3. Rex Ryan (2009 – present): 35-26

4. Jason Garrett (2011 – present): 16-14

5. Romeo Crennel (2012 – present): 3-6

Pro Football HOF – Class of 2012

Posted: February 5, 2012 by hofworthy in Chris Carter, NFL

The finalists are announced:

  1. Curtis Martin, RB
  2. Cortez Kennedy, DT
  3. Willie Roaf, OT
  4. Chris Doleman, DE
  5. Dermontti Dawson, C
  6. Jack Butler, CB (Pre-Modern Era)

It’s a shame that Chris Carter was not elected into the HOF yet again. This was his 5th year of eligibility. There appears to be an anti-wide receiver bias anyway, but Chris Carter was the victim of bad timing and overshadowed by arguably one of the best football players to ever lace up, otherwise known as the “Jerry Rice effect.” Carter was a phenomenal talent, and his stats over 16 years prove him to be one of the top 5 receivers of all time (at the time of his retirement). Time will be Carter’s ally eventually. It just wasn’t this time, but it soon will be.

Why I’m a Football Libertarian

Posted: January 21, 2012 by hermutations in NFL
Hands off Brady!

Hands off Mrs. Brady!

With the rise (or re-rise) of Ron Paul’s popularity over the last two national election cycles the ideas of Libertarianism have become much more main stream among political thinkers and ignoramuses (ignorami?) alike. Ron Paul may take credit for bringing Libertarian dialogue to the forefront but then perhaps it’s the timing of his message-a time when governmental oversight and control is reaching an apex in America.

Americans are hungry for this message.  They can’t help but watch as the economy goes down the drain along with myriads of jobs even while government spends billions and trillions into bailing out big corporations and paying for political pet projects and social programs. We certainly don’t intend for this to be a political blog, but the parallels between the national political scene and the National Football League are uncanny. (more…)

Favorite Tweet O’ The Week

Posted: November 29, 2011 by hofworthy in Favorite Tweet O' The Week, NFL

These 3 by @OfficialReview made me laugh. Anything ripping on Andy brings a smile to my face nowadays.

@OfficialReview (Arie & Al)
“This Castillo defense does not stand a chance against Brady and the Patriots. It’s like Andy Reid vs. Mashed Potatoes. #Eagles”

“Andy Reid is out of magic…and consequently, out of his pocket Chicken Nuggets. #Eagles #Patriots”

“I haven’t seen Tom Brady that mad since the lady at the spa forgot the pumice during his foot massage.”

Check out the following tweet back and forth between Shane Victorino and Jimmy Rollins:

@ShaneVictorino
“BLACK FRIDAY in Maui set to begin heads up WALMART……..! Who’s there? Please be careful!”

@JimmyRollins11
“@ShaneVictorino you going to load up on some spam?!!!!

@ShaneVictorino
“@JimmyRollins11 already on order…..thinking of getting some pineapple for me and watermelon for you? Cool?”

This tweet interaction by the two teammates was funny mostly because of the responses from people. Many of the twitter replies were ragging on @ShaneVictorino for being a racist.  But who really started the racially insensitive comments?  What do you think?  Was @ShaneVictorino’s response in context of the banter back and forth or was it out of line?

@HighCheese

“Chris Canty’s helmet was a bit more expensive, but he figured he’d recoup the cost during his offseason bee-keeping.”

——————————————————————————————————————————————

This is just a weird looking helmet. Surprised that Chris Collinsworth and Al Michaels didn’t make a bigger deal on Sunday Night Football. Reminds me of a fake Snake Eyes mask from G.I. Joe. Come to think of it, my kids would love this. If Canty were really good, I think this could catch on in college and high school. Then we’d have an army of little Snake Eyes in our schools. To: Chris Canty’s Agent, call me.

Honorable Mentions:

@HighCheese:
“Chris Canty: welder or fencer?”
“Luke, Chris Canty is your Father.”

@FakeWIPCaller
“I must say I’m proud of the people of Philly tonight, marching around the city in protest of Andy Reid’s performance #occupyphilly #fireandy”

Yikes, these baby boys fell off the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. Sort of like the Anti-Doublemint gum twins.
