The Cowboys were REALLY desperate for pass rushers though, and they got quite a bit of shit for it and he's currently unsigned, so he's still part of the "if your talent outweighs the headache, you'll be fine" equation.


That, and his contract was a total flyer. He got 1mm for every game he played, IIRC, with no obligation to the team if he got cut or missed a game.

RGIII keeps getting work, and they have similar styles/records/injury histories.


Please don't let Bacon see this post. a similarly over-hyped but ultimately shitty black QB with slightly less drama getting chances really doesn't help the "Kaep ain't catch a break cuz he black" narrative.

I hate Burneko, but this really is a good article (both his and the one he's making fun of)

I am no Mike Francesca fan but their article on Mike & the Mad Dog's 9/11 broadcasts is so stupid. Here is the gist:

"We heard some people say they said bad things about Jews and others during this broadcast"
"they weren't keeping copies of the broadcasts, but a few still exist and we found one in a library"
"we listened to it, remember, people said they said baaaaaaaad things"
"everything on the tape we heard was standard issue Mike & the Mad Dog garbage."

The end. I'll let you guess whether they had a giant baity headline with an image of two smoldering microphones.
