Late on Monday night, amid an embarrassing loss to San Francisco, Derek Anderson got caught laughing with lineman Deuce Lutui. In his postgame press conference, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic asked him why he was laughing (and Somers actually tweeted about asking him before the presser). Anderson's response was straight out of a Coors Light commercial and we've got video. 



Here's the transcription for those that are curious:
"It wasn't funny. I wasn't laughing about anything ... Okay, that's fine. That's fine. That's fine. That's fine. That's fine. I'm not laughing about it -- you think this is funny, I take this f----- serious. Real serious. I put my heart and soul into this s--- every single week. I'm just telling you what I do right now what I do every single week! Every single week I put my freaking heart and soul into this! I study my a-- off! I don't go out there and laugh! It's not funny. Nothing's funny to me. I don't want to go out there and get embarrassed in front of everybody. I'm telling you right now -- Deuce and I were talking!"
Somers then tried to ask another question and Anderson just yelled "I'm done!" and stormed away from the podium.

Derek Anderson tirade is all kinds of funny

not particularly coherent but i get his drift,i felt he was hung out by Gruden and Janikowski last night,we all know he is not the answer but to be singled out was wrong,if ESPN ran their touchline camera throughout the game we'd see all sorts of unsavoury things,to suggest Anderson didn't care because he was filmed laughing is reprehensible.

I would love to see this and all other reporters lives and conduct put under the microscope reporters put the lives and conduct of others under.

Derek Anderson tirade is all kinds of funny

I was watching the local coverage here in SF after the game and saw the way this story should've been handled nationally by the so called big boys on the networks(like it's being covered here by CBS) and ESPN. If the Derek Anderson press conference was shown in its entirity you all would see that this weasel reporter asked DA the question about him and Lutui laughing and DA actually answered the question normally and then answered another question from a different reporter. Then, this moron reporter couldn't leave it alone and baited DA until the guy snapped. This guy Somers took it way too far and loses all credibility in my eyes.
ESPN, CBS and all of the news sources who choose to report only DA's outburst aren't showing what really happened and are completely sensationalizing this story and doing the player a huge disservice to create drama that shouldn't have been there. I'm not saying that it was ok for DA and Lutui to be laughing on the sideline, and they did get caught but it was way overblown should've been covered more professionally by the big boys.

Just another clown reporter that thinks he's more than he is. Go cover the Cardinals and leave the analyzing of body language / posture / behavior / yelling / laughing / smiling / not smiling / tone / choice of words  to people that know what they're talking about. Do we have to examine every ****ing little thing????? LeBron James bumps his coach? We break it down. Anderson dares to smile while losing a game? We break it down. Owens yells at teammates? We break it down to show what a bad guy he is. Brady yells at teammates? We break it down to show what a great leader he is. ****ing STOP! Do these fat beat reporters really think they're in a position to judge every single move an athlete makes?? Based on what?? Where does that power come from, to judge everyone for everything they do?? S-T-O-P!!

Guys, I said this when they cut Leinart,Its time to blow it up, trade Larry Fitzgerald you are wasting him. the Cards can get at least two first round picks, they will finsh last with him, they my as well trade him and start over, it will be 3 years before a rookie QB will develope, can they afford to wait, this bandaid approach is not working.

Excluding Parts Of One Season........

..... Derek Anderson was a failure in Cleveland..... To think that he is capable of being the savior of a franchise after a lackluster history would be foolish on Arizona's part...... He was simply a "stopgap option" to get them through to the point where a franchise-quality QB emerges from the college ranks.

The only problem now for the Cardinals is: Who will groom this early-round draft selection into a legitimate longterm solution???

CERTAINLY not Derek Anderson!!!

If Leinart wasn't suppose to be their qb of the future, why did they take him in the first round?

I was just at a very sad Wake last week.  Tragic, sudden loss of a young parent.  yet, even there, there was some laughs going on, like there is at every wake. there is always some humor in every tragedy or bad moment.  good for Anderson.  he still sucks, but f those reporters or jerkoff fans.
