Linky – July 7, 2011 – Marvel Comics pisses off fans of 31 NFL teams

I wonder if Captain America is also a fan of the Yankees and Lakers.

UFL emerges as option for Barber should NFL lockout linger –


Possible Giants free agent target: Vonta Leach – Ed Valentine, Big Blue View

Looks like Ed and I agree.

Grading the units: Wide Receiver – Rich Resch,

Heh heh, he said “unit.”  Rich also looks at the TE’s here, who I agree are very “meh.”

Making a case: Eli Manning heads list of “Top 100” snubs – “expert panel”

I’m thoroughly sick of this “Top 100” list, and yet I link to something about it like 2-3 times/week.  It’s hypnotically appealing in its irrationality.  Anyway, Kirwan and Brooks mention Eli, La Canfora mentions Osi.

Giants may look to ink Kiwi to to a short-term deal? Matt Loede, Giants Gab

Signing Kiwi to a 1-year deal to see if his neck holds up is fine and good for the Giants, but they’ll need the 31 other teams league-wide to cooperate.

Cowboys, Redskins, and Eagles news after the jump)…

Cowboys 2nd round pick LB Bruce Carter says he’s ready to go – OCC, Blogging the Boys

Carter tore his ACL on Nov. 20 last season.  Every player is going to say they’re ready to go.  It can certainly be done, but the Cowboys might be wise to take it slow with the rookie.

Marvel Comics teams up with Dallas Cowboys – Mark Ruffin, DC Comic Books Examiner

In case you don’t know, I’m an Eagles fan.  Grew up in South Jersey, moved to North Jersey to work.  If I ever go to a bar up here, and my beer is in a glass with a Giants logo on it, I ask for a different glass.  I won’t even touch it.  I’ll ask the bartender if he’ll/she’ll pour it into another glass.  After they laugh, I usually need to explain that I’m dead serious.

I lived in Hoboken at one point and used to get a cup of coffee at Dunkin Donuts every morning… until they slapped a Giants logo on all the cups.  I can’t live without coffee, but there was no way I was walking to the Path Station holding a Giants cup.  No way.  Bye Dunkies.  Hello Keurig machine.

When I bought my house, there was this decoration in the shape of a star on the side of the house.  Immediately broke out the ladder, ripped it off the house, sledgehammered it to mess up its shape, and threw it in the trash.

When I put stuff in the microwave, I’ll only plug in times that coincide with Eagles players’ numbers.  My wife even knows to ask me how long to put stuff in there before she serves me food that’s been nuked.  She’ll ask (with a highly annoyed tone), “How long should I put this leftover Mac and Cheese in for?”  I’ll tell her, “Give me a Leonard Weaver,” and she’ll know to put it in for 43 seconds.  If I need to microwave a pat of butter, I’ll never do 10 for DeSean Jackson because he wears the same number as Eli Manning.  There are all sorts of rules.

So OK, I’m obviously more than just just a tad psychotic.  Anyway, the point here is that I’ll never support Marvel Comics.  Thank God I don’t really give a rat’s ass about Marvel Comics.  But if the South Park kids ever became huge Cowboys fans, I’d be devastated.

Proposal rejected, Roy Williams wants ring back – Scott Crisp

Covered this yesterday, just like everyone else and their mother.  Let’s take a brief moment away from clowning Roy to note something that has gone largely overlooked – The girl is effing hot.  I’d probably be afraid to propose to her in person too. She totally would have gotten the “I like you, do you like me note.”  On the downside, it looks like she has the classic awful chick throw.

Don’t look for a quick exit for Albert – Rich Tandler, Real Redskins

Lol.  Silly Shanny.  It’s amazing how badly ego can cloud judgement.

Report: Redskins, Cullen Jenkins have mutual interest –

No, Redskins, NOOOOOOOOO!!!!  This one wreaks of the “same ol’, same ol’.”  As the players around the league say, “Washington is the place you go when you want to get paid.”  Jenkins has his ring, now it’s time to make that bank account swell.  I hate this signing for the Skins.  The guy is 30, and has a recent history of injuries.  Build with youth guys… Youth.  This is a step in the wrong direction.

Free agent chaos awaits – Rick Snyder, Washington Examiner

Among the names floated in this piece – Nnamdi Asomugha, Jonathan Joseph, Randy Moss, Plaxico Burress and Carson Palmer.  Oof.

Marty Mornhinweg sees Vick possibly being better than Steve Young –

Similar players in a lot of ways, but let’s tap the breaks on that one, Marty.

T.O. thinks he’s funny – Mark Perner,

I read somewhere else that it’s T.O. (“Terrell O’Neal” or something like that on the show, I think), his mom, sister, a few baby mommas, and four kids.  Not 100% on those details (and sorry, I don’t feel like researching it), but call me crazy… I won’t actually seek it out, but if I happen to stumble on it, I’d watch that.

Jason La Canfora suggests Nnamdi Asomugha could fetch $19 million/year – Albert Breer’s twitter account

LOL.  Nnamdi’s obviously a great player and there are a lot of dumb teams out there, but there’s a 0% chance he gets paid that much.

Eagles D needs more than just a CB – Sheil Kapadia, Moving the Chains

In 2010, the Eagles’ defense gave up a franchise-record 31 touchdown passes. Only the Cowboys and Texans allowed more (33 apiece).

And opponents scored on 78.26 percent of their trips inside the red zone against the Eagles. That was by far the worst mark in the NFL. The Texans were second-worst at 67.8 percent.

Oof.  Sheil also lists how many TD’s each defender gave up, which is interesting stuff.

    Great now I have an excuse not to go see the new capt America movie!

  3. Stephen says:

    She’s a looker no doubt, but come on Roy… at least give yourself a fighting chance!

    Don’t marry for looks anyway, as Ron White says, you can’t fix stupid.

  4. brisulph says:

    Tiki must be even more desperate than thought if he is considering that move to the UFL to hang out with Fassel. Didn’t he not get along with Fassel?

  5. I can see how many times each link is clicked. There are 18 clickable links in this post. Naturally, the one that brings you to Roy Williams’ almost-fiancee has more than double the next highest link. Perverts.

    I said it before, so I’ll say it again…. out of the “Core 4” Marvel Superheros that are being inked to the Cowboys with this deal, NONE of them would be Cowboys fans in RL. Two would be fans of OTHER NFC East teams, though, and one might be.

    Spiderman would obviously be a Giants fan. Sorry, but it’s the way it is. He might have a softspot for the Jets, but I don’t think he’d favor them over the Giants, mainly because his uncle would have strongly favored the Giants.

    Thor…. it’s pretty obvious who his team would be, and it ain’t the Cowboys. Thor would be rocking Purple Haze with Prince for his Vikings.

    Ironman… come on, his colors are Burgundy and Gold. Coincidence? I think not. Redskins fan all the way.

    Captain America…. sorry, but the Captain would NEVER change his choice, once made. Seeing as how the Cowboys didn’t exist back in the 1930s and 1940s, and his reputation as being a scrappy, blue collor fighter who was an All American kind of kid in a too small body (until he beefed up on the Steroids), he’d almost certainly have been either a Lions fan or a Bears fan. Outside chance he could be a Steelers fan or a Steagles fan (*which would mean that he would root for both the Eagles and Steelers… if some Eagles fan thinks that was meant as an insult, look up your own team history, circa 1942-1944). No WAY he would later root for the Cowboys.

    This is ALL about corporate whoring out their own history here, and the pimp is Jerry Jones.

    1. Haha, very nice.

      Nah. Cap is, like damn near everybody else in the 616, a New Yorker. Considering his preferred color scheme, he’d have to be a Giants fan.
