Rob Bironas' Pro Bowl 'My Bironas' viral video

By Will Brinson

OK, maybe Rob Bironas' campaign to make the Pro Bowl isn't "viral" yet, but we're gonna try to help. As did Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who tweeted out a good-natured jab at Bironas along with a link to his website (RobBironas.com).

"Talk about a shameless pro bowl vote request video," Hasselbeck tweeted on Thursday.

As you can see in the video below, Bironas is soliciting a little help from his friends, many of whom are famous and all of whom want you to vote for Bironas to make the Pro Bowl.

Naturally, it's set to "My Sharona" ... except it's the "My Bironas" version, which is exceptionally better. (But really, it's just the same.)

VIDEO: Tom Brady, Bill O'Brien argue on sideline

By Will Brinson

On Sunday, Tom Brady threw a rare red-zone interception against the Redskins and decided to let someone know that they did something wrong.

Offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien seemed to disagree with Brady, and the two got into a heated argument on the sideline that CBS Sports cameras caught.

A few minutes later, Bill Belichick had to help separate the two when O'Brien decided he hadn't full explained his point of view to Brady.

The good news for everyone involved, though, is that Brady and his OC hugged after the game, so everything's probably OK. But things got a little tense for a while there at the end of the game, which is probably understandable, considering they gave Rex Grossman a shot at beating them with the pick.

VIDEO: Chiefs perform worst onsides kick ever

By Will Brinson

A good rule of thumb is that if an NFL announcer starts a description of a play with "I hate to laugh but ..." then the result of the play was something really terrible and embarrassing. This rule applies to an onsides kick that the Chiefs Ryan Succop attempted with 12:58 remaining and Kansas City down 25 points to the Jets.

Succop's kick went (maybe) three yards and it caused Dan Fouts and Ian Eagle to get quit a chuckle. For your amusement:

SNL: NFL more powerful than President

Posted by Will Brinson

No one watches "Saturday Night Live" anymore these days, but that doesn't stop Mrs. Brinson from spending her Sunday mornings finding something other than football to watch. As a result, if there's anything sports-related on the previous night's show, I'm all up on it.

Like last night, when Fred Armison did the open as Barack Obama, breaking down the 12 most powerful things in America. The NFL checked in at No. 4.

How? Well, according to "SNL" you'd never see an NFL game interrupted for a Presidential broadcast ("even if the Cardinals were playing the Jaguars") and no one has a fantasy Congress league.

Both of these things are true, sadly.

VIDEO: Peyton Manning in the SEC on CBS booth

Posted by Will Brinson

So, I'm sitting there on Saturday, working really hard and convincing Mrs. Brinson that yes, I DO need to watch the SEC on CBS because these guys will be playing the pros soon, thank you very much, when who but Peyton Manning, quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts, pops into the booth with Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson.

This wonderful little bit of synergy lit up my eyes brighter than Derek Dooley's pants, especially because Peyton talked about his current rehab process for a neck injury that's sidelines him (and the Colts) for the past few weeks.

"I'm doing well, Verne," Manning said. "I get to do a little more each week. I'm taking it slow, I'm following doctors orders and I'm trying to help out with the team wherever I can.

"It's tough, Verne -- I was telling my minister the other day in our Bible study, it's kinda like I've been giving the sermon for 14 years and now I'm passing out the bulletins. And I'm doing a real good job on giving out these bulletins but it doesn't have a real big impact on the service."

And yes, Gary feels threatened for his job security. He said so himself.

VIDEO: LeBron James to the NFL, 'Madden' style

Posted by Will Brinson



In these desperate NBA times, we've seen a superstar like LeBron James discuss jumping to the NFL. While the league wouldn't comment on it when we asked them, and while it's unlikely that 'Bron actually ever makes that jump (for any number of reasons, really), Pete Carroll is courting him to Seattle pretty, pretty hard these days.

And it got me wondering what exactly LeBron would look like in the NFL. So, in an attempt to really make Mrs. Brinson think I'm a dork find out, I fired up Madden 12, created a LeBron James character for the Cleveland Browns and played a game. No, seriously: there's video proof below.

But first, a couple pieces of information that are helpful. One, I edited the video. Duh. (You don't want to watch me playing Madden for 20 minutes, even with LeBron.) Two, I put him on Cleveland because I wanted to deal with an average quarterback. And also, Cleveland deserves something. Three, I started out on "Pro" level, but cranked it up to "All-Madden" after the first series. Four, LeBron rates out, based on the characteristics I gave him (see below), to an 83 as a tight end, a 71 as a wide receiver and a 74 as a fullback. Five, he would be a LOT higher, except his route running is shoddy as is his pass- and run-blocking footwork.

Six, he is a beast.


OK, so you probably want to know how we got here. Well, for starters, I brought in Eye on Basketball's Matt Moore to persuade me that LeBron's better than I believed on the football field. That bought the king a pile of points, as Moore's substantially more in love with his ability to transition to the NFL than I am.

The result of inputting the various particulars made LeBron the 10th best tight end in the NFL. Which is pretty ridiculous considering he has no practice on anything.



Here are the full characteristics I plugged in, and I'm totally willing to concede that some stuff is off; if you've got beef with a rating leave it in the comments or holler at me on Twitter @WillBrinson. Trucking, for instance, could be higher. And catching could be lower. (See Moore's influence above.)

Strength: 90
Agility: 88
Speed: 91
Acceleration: 93
Awareness: 65
Catching: 90
Carrying: 70
Pass blocking: 50
Run blocking: 50
Jumping; 99
Trucking: 77
Elusiveness: 85
Stiff arm: 79
Spin move: 85
Juke move: 90
Impact blocking: 65
Run block strength: 85
Run block footwork: 50
Pass block strength: 85
Pass block footwork: 50
Spectacular Catch: 90
Catch in Traffic: 85
Route Running: 55
Release: 55
Injury: 85
Stamina: 90
Toughness: 65

Ed. Note: Here's the YouTube for anyone having trouble with the vid above.

VIDEO: Pats fans pitch Ochocinco on moving in

Posted by Will Brinson

As you know, new Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco is interested in living with a fan for a few weeks as he tries to find a more permanent residence. So finding out what sort of fans would be interested in housing the Ocho could be a fascinating exercise. Well, start your slow clap for Steve Silva of the Boston Globe for the video he shot at the Patriots preseason opener, in which he canvased the parking lot for potential roommates and found some absolutely outstanding candidates.

"WE GOT TWINKIES! WE GOT DING DONGS! WE GOT DORITOS!" narrowly edges out "We got two cats but they just got over the fleas" and "I'm awesome Chad! It's me! It's me! I'm Tawmy B!" as my favorite quote.

VIDEO: Jermichael Finley snares two balls at once

Posted by Will Brinson

Yesterday, as I was reading my colleague Clark Judge's excellent piece on Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, I found myself trying to imagine what the catch that Clark described -- two balls at the same time, in an actual drill -- might have looked like.

Well, I didn't have to wait long to cut the old imaginationland nodes off and actually see what the catch looked like, thanks to the magic of YouTube (and Jimmy Traina of SI's Hot Clicks).

As you'll see below, it's pretty ridiculous -- Finley is accidentally thrown two balls at once and somehow manages to catch one in each hand. At the same time.

No big deal for the guy who says he'll be "changing the tight end position" in 2011, right?
