Think you know who’s going to win Super Bowl XLVI? Chances are good that, if you’re not a part of our specialized staff, you’re completely wrong…
I admit it… I goofed. I didn’t even have the Giants making the playoffs. It takes a lot of humility for a Jets fan to offer an apology to their MetLife Stadium roomies, but I did it, nonetheless!
Can you imagine Elway Tebowing? We can…
Statistically speaking, Tim Tebow is part of the 1% … of NFL quarterbacks, since 1970, to play terribly, win games and have a passer rating better than 100. Yes, folks … that’s even better than John Elway. Here’s a look at how Tebow has managed to Occupy Mile High:
Plenty of athletes in the NFL scare the hell out of me, and not just because of how they’re built. It’s more because of their “game face,” which I lovingly call their “football face.” The Baltimore Ravens’ Ray Lewis is a prime example. His countenance as he walks onto the field strikes HD fear into the foundation of my being, so much so that I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that he eats babies and kittens as a snack on game day. You catch my drift.
That said, there are far fewer coaches who have the same frightening facial effect. Bill Belichick and Andy Reid don’t smile — ever — but that doesn’t scare me. It actually wasn’t until watching the San Fran at Detroit game yesterday that I discovered the only NFL coach with a truly frightening football face. That man is Jim Harbaugh of the 49ers. It was fitting, then, that Harbaugh would be at the center of controversy based on his frighteningly intense end-of-game handshake with Lions coach Jim Schwartz. Apparently, Harbaugh’s pat on the back had a little too much enthusiasm and the shake had a bit of umph to it, leading Schwartz to get pissed off. The two coaches bickered a little, were separated and called it a day. The sports media, however, hasn’t shut up about it.
So as to not spend any more time on the story, here’s my thought on the whole thing: NOBODY SHOULD EVER MESS WITH JIM HARBAUGH ON THE FIELD OF PLAY. NOTHING IN NFL COACHING IS AS FRIGHTENING AS JIM HARBAUGH’S FOOTBALL FACE. IF I WERE TO START A DEATH METAL BAND TOMORROW, I’D CALL IT “JIM HARBAUGH’S FOOTBALL FACE.”
And on that note, I will now head over to MetLife Stadium to watch my beloved Jets. Thank you.
