Not really sure how the above ties into the other stuff we had this week, though Michael Bennett said that playing for Pete Carroll was like working for Willy Wonka, so a-Photoshopping I had to go.
For a while, it looked like we would have a standoff between an influential owner and the commissioner, though that dream died with a hug early this week when Bob Kraft said he wouldn’t challenge the Ballghazi punishment. Tom Brady’s appeal is still coming in mid-June, which is likely to be reduced as a favor for Kraft being a good NFL owner and backing off for the good of the league.
Before we get out of here for Memorial Day weekend, let’s have a look back:
— A new extra point structure was approved, making PATs slightly more difficult and creating the possibility of a pick-two, which will make for truly great quarterback schadenfreude.
— Is Joe Flacco elite? We may never know, but we have an oral history of the question.
— The Titans having fans turns out to be a big ruse. Who knew?
— Sting’s son is trying out for the Chiefs so he can eventually be buried by Hulk Hogan’s son.
