Mark Mangino Does Not Like His Players Showboating

Thanks to EDSBS and FanHouse, we have some great video from Kansas’ win over Central Michigan this weekend. Check out this punt return for a touchdown in the second quarter by Raimond (yes, there’s an “I” in his name) Pendelton:

That made the score 28-0, with Kansas going on to win it 52-7. I love it when coaches do that crap — no showboating, no penalty flags, none of that garbage. Marvin Lewis should learn from Mangino. That … was brilliant.

Many thanks to You Been Blinded for digging up that masterpiece.

Video of Michael Vick’s Apology

I have to say, I was quite moved by Michael Vick’s speech today. He apologized to Goodell, Blank, his teammates, and the fans. I’ll let you judge it for yourself, with much thanks to Awful Announcing for the video.

Really, I think he knocked it out of the park, and it seems like he will be doing some soul searching. I bet he still can’t believe that the dog fighting led him to this much public embarrassment. Again, I completely bought the speech, and really appreciated the fact that it was straight from the heart, seemingly un-rehearsed. And thank goodness it was his speech — not that of a public relations firm.

Being an NFL Official Is Not Safe

This is why you must be on the look out for everything … head on a swivel, head on a swivel, head on a swivel …

Yes, that was from Sunday night’s Steelers/Eagles game. I know they don’t do it full time, but I sure hope the refs get good health benefits.

Chest Bump to The 700 Level for the video.

Darren Dreifort on Stealing Money

Like Buckner and Dent to Red Sox fans, you just don’t bring up the names Dreifort or Chan Ho around Dodger fans. In case you’re not familiar with the name Darren Dreifort, we can thank the jerkoffs at Pop Jocks for reminding us:

For Dodger fans, they probably don’t even realize it was all about one pick. One slot in the draft order was the difference between Alex Rodriguez, and Darren Dreifort. Unfortunately … well, you know what happened. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Who’s Better: Mike Nugent, or Neil Rackers?

Yesterday I had the first installment of the who’s better series.  I went with Braylon Edwards over Marques Colston, though some of you felt the Colston commercial was better.  This time around, we’ll compare kickers.  We’ll start with Jets kicker Mike Nugent.  Take a look:

Last year, it was Cardinals kicker Neil Rackers appearing in a commercial:

Well hot damn, that Rackers one has to be one of my all-time favorites.  It just looks so real!  I’m going Rackers here.

Who’s Better:
Marques Colston or Braylon Edwards

Who’s Better: Marques Colston, or Braylon Edwards?

NFL Network started running some outstanding spots last year to promote their fantasy football game. I mean incredible. In fact, that T.J. Who’sYourMama commercial might be the best of all-time. Well, luckily for us, the Network has come out with a new batch of commercials. So now I leave it up to you, which commercial is better? Marques Colston from this year:

Or Braylon Edwards from last year:

OK, so the part where Colston palms the ball and grabs it reaching down, that’s pretty tight. Almost like stopping a bullet with bare hands. But come on, the blindfold! Are you kidding me? I’m going with Braylon here.

(Love to Ryan Wilson at FanHouse for the Colston vid)
