The Daily Shoutout: Andre Johnson's hammy

Posted on: October 3, 2011 7:06 am
 
OPENING HIT: In Houston, there is both excitement and dread. Excitement because the Texans are 3-1 and finally showing some toughness. Dread, because Andre Johnson injured his hamstring. The fear is that Johnson may miss a few weeks, at least. "If we have to go without him for a period, we're going to have to ask some guys to really step up to the plate," coach Gary Kubiak said.

Some in the organization were privately saying they felt Johnson's chances of playing this week were extremely slim. The interesting thing about the Texans is that after Johnson went out the team did exactly what Kubiak wanted. Everyone played better particularly the defense. If that Texans defense continues to play the way it did against Pittsburgh the Johnson injury won't be as crushing.

Ben Roethlisberger: He left the locker room in walking boot and there's fear, as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported, that he might have a broken foot. When myself and a group of reporters spoke to Roethlisberger after their loss to Houston, he was, well, typical Roethlisberger. He said, if needed, he'd wear a cast on the foot and play. Crazy thing is: he did it last year with this other foot when he a broken bone in it. His off-the-field stupidity aside, he's one tough dude.

REVENGE OF THE TURDS: The Lions are 4-0. Let that sink into your gonads for a moment.

4-0.

Also, the 49ers, Bills, and Redskins are 3-1. This remains the biggest reason why the NFL is the most popular sport. A team can go from scrubs to hopeful overnight. Now, this doesn't mean these teams will stay successful. Rex Grossman is sure to doom the Redskins eventually. It will happen because he's Rex Grossman. He will always let you down but for now the ex-uglies rule the league.

Tim Tebow: I'm told Broncos coaches, in light of the team's horrid start, are privately softening their stance about starting Tebow at quarterback.

AND LASTLY...NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth may not be invited to the sexy home of sexy quarterback Mark Sanchez anytime soon. On one play during the Jets' atrocious offensive performance, Sanchez, who had been hit hard all night, looked to be ducking a hit. Collinsworth basically said Sanchez was quitting the play and avoiding a hit. He was calling Sanchez gutless. Not cool.

No Tribe fan, the worst is the one tough dude part. Mikie is forgetting the times when both Coach Bill, and Coach Tomlin had to publically correct Ol' Ben making false claims of make believe injuries after loses. Or his team questioning his heart and toughness when he sat for a crucial game with a minor injury after refusing to allow snaps to go to his back-up Dixon all week in practice. Those are facts that are forgotten, his off field stupidity is well documented.

Editing

Haha! This is what happens when you don't have an editor review what you write... Or is the editor incompetent? I'm guessing that since this is a blog, the editor isn't reviewing it and the posts come directly from the writer. Hopefully...

Was this article written by a professional.  I'm dumber for reading it.

Article:  "When myself and a group of reporters spoke to Roethlisberger after their loss to Houston...."
Try "Whe a group of report and I spoke...."

Article:  "... he did it last year with this other foot when he a broken bone in it.
Translation, please.

Article: "His off-the-field stupidity aside, he's one tough dude."
Report facts.  Your commentary makes you look ignorant.

Article: REVENGE OF THE TURDS: The are 4-0. Let that sink into your gonads for a moment.
My 12-year-old is more mature.
