Derek Anderson Isn’t Laughing Now

Only three seasons ago, Arizona Cardinals QB Derek Anderson had a career season with the Cleveland Browns, passing for over 3,700 yards and 29 touchdowns. He was the belle of the NFL ball, as teams were kicking his tires in trade rumors and it looked like he was poised to be the next breakout surprise. Unfortunately for Anderson, the 2008 season started. Then the 2009 season. It’s pretty much been one giant snowball of suck for the poor guy since then, and it all came to a head last night after the Cardinals suffered a 27-6 beating at the hands of the equally underperforming San Francisco 49ers.

During the postgame press conference, a reporter asked Anderson what appeared to be so funny between him and teammate Deuce Litui as the two were laughing on the sidelines in the 4th quarter as their team was losing by three scores. Anderson’s response went about as expected, as he defended himself and denied laughing. Unfortunately, the camera showed him laughing and the reporter kept going, leading to this heated Anderson response:

“I’m just telling you right now what I do every single week. Every single week, I put my heart and soul into this. I study my ass off. I don’t go out there and laugh. It’s not funny. Nothing’s funny to me. I don’t want to go out there and get embarrassed on Monday Night Football in front of everybody.”

That reminds me of when I asked my parents for Transformers one Christmas and they got me Gobots. Said my father: “We don’t always get what we want.” Video after the jump…
