What would he have done to play with Brady? *shudders*
David Terrell, a wide receiver out of Michigan, was picked #8 overall by the Bears in 2001. He was brought in to fix Chicago’s traditionally pathetic passing game, and the results were…well, pathetic. His first two season in the league he combined for under six hundred yards receiving. But this wasn’t his fault, oh no. According to David it was the subpar quarterback play. This is a fair point, as Jim Miller, Chris Chandler, Shane Matthews, and Henry Burris weren’t exactly lighting it up. Now I know what you’re thinking (besides “who the fuck is Henry Burris?’), why would we even be talking about David Terrell?
After being mentioned in the Chicago publication RedEye as a bust, David bashed his quarterback teammates and threw in one more nugget of info:
He would “cut off his balls” to play with Jay Cutler. Just in case you thought that was something that he said flippantly, he went on to explain, “You could have neutered me. I woulda been neutered with a smile.”
What does any of this mean? Well to quote my co-editor, the offseason sucks.

Today I saw at least five ESPN analysts question the Patriots decision to sign Tim Tebow, on the grounds that, “it will be too much of a distraction.”
Let me translate for a second what everyone in Bristol was actually saying: “We are such fucking assholes that we can’t help but bring this up every five seconds. Can’t wait to ask everyone in the New England locker room about it! Every day! Our laziness as journalists has reached such epic heights that most of the time Sportscenter looks more like TMZ than it does…well, Sportscenter. Also First Take is race bait garbage, but hey ratings!”
That last sentence wasn’t really relevant to the rest of my point, but I thought I’d fit it in there anyway. Continue reading
It finally happened, guys! The event important enough to bring me out of my NBA Playoffs cave (RIP Pacers). Perhaps one of the most celebrated moments of every offseason.
I’m talking, of course, about the annual “ridiculous claim about yourself or your team months before you have any idea what you’re actually capable of”! It’s the thrilling moment that brings confidence to one fanbase and endless comedy to every other fanbase. Last year, Ryan Kalil stupidly predicted his team would win the Super Bowl. This year the award goes to Reggie Bush, who hasn’t realized that his word hasn’t been taken seriously since he was in New Orleans. Continue reading
Not an image I ever appreciated until now.
As a Packer fan, one of the biggest compliments I can give to Brian Urlacher is: “I hate your guts”. Continue reading
“I love blackouts! Almost as much as I love the Yankees, and Duke basketball.”
Originally this feature was designed simply to pick apart the subpar logic and ludicrous analogies of Colin Cowherd, which I would be far more effective at if I listened to or watched him regularly. The reason why this is only the second one of these pieces is because most days I really can’t stomach his show. The other day, I happened across it by accident and was instantly filled with a burning rage that could only be satisfied by…well, blogging about it. That sounds so anticlimactic, doesn’t it?
