Keep it on the front page: Brett Favre is a creep

Favre has lawyered up by hiring Eric Herschmann as his chief counsel. Herschmann is a former White House attorney who worked under Donald Trump. I'm not sure he is the best man for the job; his advice to Trump after January 6 was, "Hire a good defense lawyer. "

TBH--your link is to an article about another lying con artist of a former athlete. But I agree with you that we should be paying much more attention to this bullshit with Favre. What kind of scumbag uses his sports celebrity to funnel millions of dollars of COVID relief funds away from the neediest people in America to build a vanity project volleyball gym for his daughter's school? Serious, fuck that guy 1,000 times with a tablet displaying one of his unsolicited dick pics.

I'm hoping that Jimmy is able to avoid the medical tent and do enough to help the team win.

Run a crisp offense in the first half, put the playmakers in a position to help build a lead, then let the defense and the patented Shanahan run blocking principles close out the game.

Even if they can't build a lead, the Niner D is eminently capable of taking the other team out of their offensive game plan.

If all goes well, the division standings could end up in inverse relationship to the QB's salary, with Jimmy and Geno at the top, Stafford and Kyler at the bottom.

Absolutely no question he is all class. And in a crummy situation.

BUT .. the reason the Niners wanted to move on does not appear to have changed. Hoping I'm wrong.

Mississippi Today has also done some strong work on this. Listened to an interview Dan LeBatard did with Anna Wolfe about her reporting on this, and all I can say is, Favre should be in prison.

Just a thoroughly awful person. You can't stress the point enough that he conspired to take money from the poorest people in the poorest state in America to enrich himself and his family.

If Groppo plays like he did last night

Come on now. Last night's win was all on the Defense and Deebo's heroics. Jimmy was classic Jimmy. When the game got tight he missed 4 consecutive easy passes in a row. The defensive pressure and Stafford's resulting poor play were the deciding factors.

For now I'm will to cut Jimmy some slack as he may not be in game form. But as a Niners fan it certainly looked like the same guy who has been the only weak link on the team in big moments.

The Browns are playing a fine game of Shithead.

They're paying Deshaun 10 million in salary and signing bonus to be suspended.

They're paying Baker Mayfield 10 million to suck in Carolina.

Fives rule.

The Browns are only paying Jacoby Brissett 5 million to actually take the field.

The Panthers are only paying Mayfield 5 million to suck.

Speaking of magic, any day that Jalen Ramsey gets humbled, even just momentarily, is a good day, and Deebo Samuel is our man of the hour after turning Ramsey into a rodeo clown during his spectacular catch and run.

When you come to think of it, in the past half year or so, Garoppolo had poorly timed shoulder surgery, got trampled in the press before and after draft day, got publicly demoted by his team in favor of Lance, twisted in the wind as trade bait for eons, then re-signed with the team at a huge discount, was tasked with supporting his successor, didn't get any first team reps, then got thrust into the game, rust and all.

That is a rather fucked up set of circumstances. How many former title game starters would be able to endure all that and keep their head up and go to work every day in a professional manner? How many other players would have had their attitude and confidence totally shot by the experience?

If Groppo plays like he did last night, and is able to keep the offense on the field long enough for the sparkling Niner defense to remain at their best for four quarters and the team goes to the playoffs and wins a game or two, that will be a noteworthy accomplishment.

If the Commanders could be awarded the maximum allowable number of style points for their alternate unis, they'd almost be competitive.

Also, if Washington had signed Garoppolo instead of Wentz, Jimmy G would already be in the hospital and out for the season. Vladimir Putin should be playing QB for that team. Hasten his demise.

Don't look now, but the supposedly washed up, no longer relevant Chip Kelly has his UCLA team at 5-0, having just knocked off #15 Washington, their first ranked opponent of 2022.

UCLA should be ranked pretty soon themselves. And they have a roster full of great names that energetic, fast talking announcers are likely to mispronounce, such as Titus Mokiao-Atimalala. (I remember how hard it was for old fart sportscasters to learn how to exist in a world that included Manu Tuiasosopo).

If things stay on track, this year's USC-UCLA game should be a good one.

Amazon has a medical consultant the broadcast team can talk to about an injury like the one Tua suffered. Al Michaels cited him in discussing the disturbing hand and arm rigidity called fencing response.

The postgame show also devoted a long time -- perhaps 10 minutes -- to the issue of Tua's possible concussion last weekend and the question of whether he should have been playing Thursday.

I wasn't expecting that and assume the NFL will ensure that never happens again as part of a game broadcast.

I went and checked the official NFL game highlight clip and sure enough, it goes immediately from Tupuo's sack right to Bridgewater magically appearing under center with no mention of Tua's injury. What else would anyone expect?

The NFL home office will suppress and whitewash anything it possibly can. They could make Putin look like an honorable strategic genius. Or at the very least, they'd give it a shot if provided an opportunity to try.

Sadly, no sooner had I posted here than Tua got hurt. That did not feel good.

There were clips of Tupuo's sack posted online very soon afterward and I did get to see the situation.

I then went back and looked at Tua's injury against the Bills. The Dolphins have shown criminal disregard for his medical well being.

Some commentators tried to duck the question of negligence and jeopardization and find positives, saying: "Hey, he was discharged from the hospital and flew home with the team".

No problem then, eh, boys? Everything's going to be fine? Keep the shine on the shield no matter what.

I definitely like the new "white bengal" look. As far as not being a Prime member, beaver, you spared yourself repeated viewing of one of the scariest injuries I've seen. Tua had no business playing in that game, and the hit he took may very well have ended a very bright young career just as it was getting started. My random thoughts:

I feel really bad for Josh Tupuo, the Bengals' nose tackle who made the play that injured Tua. It was his first career sack, and a clean hit, so he was rightfully celebrating with his teammates when the realization hit that Tua was in bad shape.

I'm incredibly glad that the University of Cincinnati has a world-class trauma hospital less than 5 miles from the stadium, and Tua got there almost immediately.

I'm super proud of my hometown fans for 65,000 of them chanting "Tua, Tua" as he was wheeled off of the playing field. Showed a lot of respect for an opponent.

I didn't have the intestinal fortitude to watch the film of that Niners game.

Jimmy was more or less worth what they paid him last year and is more or less worth what they're paying him this year. Unless he's viewed strictly as a backup to Trey Lance, in which case, he's the highest paid QB2 in the league.

Since they both left the Patriots roster, Jacoby Brissett has gradually gotten better at playing the QB position professionally, and Jimmy G has gotten progressively worse.

At least Wentz can throw a ball more than 5 yards.

If that pass was thrown by JimmyG it would either hit the turf well short of Jacksonville or end up being caught by a defender nowhere near the target area.

Wentz has an excuse: he is behind the worst O line in the NFL on a poor team and often decides shortly after the 7th sack he just needs to heave the ball and hope.

JimmyG is surrounded by pro-bowlers and rarely gets touched yet cannot hit a crossing route 8 yards down field directly in front of him when his receiver is wide open. Five or 6 times per game.

On behalf of rcade's safety, I'm visualizing Hurricane Ian as a long pass being thrown by Carson Wentz.

That way, if Wentz was aiming at Jacksonville, the ball would actually go to Governor DeSantis in Tallahassee.

Syracuse has no business being in the ACC. We've got enough orange teams already.

Wish they would go back to the Big East or to another conference.

They have a knack for being Virginia's nemesis. Including last night on the football field.

Virginia has notched a few lacrosse and women's soccer whuppings to help ease the pain but beyond that, for Cavalier fans medicating traditionally and affordably, the remedy of choice is grain alcohol and bottom shelf bourbon.

Taylor Twellman said in the post game of today's USMNT match against Japan that it was the final game on ESPN for the team, ending a 30-year run on ESPN/ABC. The USWNT has a few more this year but it's leaving the network as well.

Browns have a pretty solid team. Brissett is a real nice fit and provides some stability at QB they've been lacking for a number of years. Watson has a completely different skill set that would require significant retooling of the offense. If the Browns continue playing well I wonder if they don't defer inserting Watson until next year.

It would be a totally Browns predicament for the team to be 8-3 and loving life with Jacoby Brissett when guaranteed gazillionaire Deshaun Watson returns from his suspension.

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

My wife and I are right now "chillin'" in Falmouth, MA, on The Cape (Cape Cod for you non-New Englanders) The new logo looks nice, but this addition to the paint area is better. Russell owned the paint during his time, so putting his number there is fitting. On the subject of NBA greats, the Lakers have finally seen fit to retire George Mikan's number. He was the dominant big man for his time in the 1940s to mid-1950s. He retired in 1956, the same year Russell entered the league, and some said that after Mikan played against Russell, his retirement was inevitable.

Rap isn't exactly my favored musical genre, but if the Beav is game, so am I. I haven't rocked out for a while. The last time was at a Moody Blues performance in Manchester, NH, when my wife and I got up from our seats (we were on the floor portion of the arena) and started dancing up a storm. Lots of fun, but it might be a good idea to bring qualified EMT help if I ever do this again.

For the first few years of his employment, yours truly did indeed wear a jacket and tie. The tie had to be a clip-on. Most of the equipment I worked on had high-speed cooling fans, and if your tie encountered them, you had a good chance of choking. When I went to work with the Marine Corps in Japan, I ditched the suit and went to jeans and a shirt. Crawling around airplanes or working in a maintenance van tends to mess up clothing rather badly. Only the management types ever wore suits, and they learned to ditch them whenever there was actual work getting done.

I envision Howard as the last of the "where a suit everywhere, no matter the occasion." Since I think he's an engineer type of guy, he's got one suit, brown of course. Funerals, baptisms, weddings, retirement parties, Celtics games, restaurant outings, picnics, parades, everything.
