Thanks for the pic, Kevin. I love it.
Are we tired of Ray Lewis yet? How about the fact it is Lewis’ last game (really?)? How about the comparisons of Ray Lewis to Patrick Willis? The Har-blather? Kaepernicking? Deer antler spray? Alex Smith and his fate? His loss of job? Bah.
At least the players seem to be having fun with it. Joe Staley put on a tattoo sleeve and Kaepernicked for the media. Kaepernick was talked into Kaepernicking for the assembled media. A reporter asked Flacco how he felt about his own father calling him dull. Flacco responded by saying I think he meant that as a compliment, and Flacco pretty much said yeah, I am dull. It means I’m not a distraction. Riveting stuff. Randy Moss decided to declare himself the best WR to ever play the game, saying it isn’t all numbers, but really, they do come in to play. Moss took a few seasons off in his head, so he’s a little off, but his rambling answers were fun. It appeared the reporters were trying to get the old Randy to emerge. The volatile Randy who would go off into crazyland. I like Rice’s response (which isn’t really correct) but he said it’s all about this as he pointed to one of his Super Bowl rings. Plenty of great players didn’t get the shot at a Super Bowl, but whatever Rice is was and probably always will be the #1 WR ever. Rice was fairly cool about it, saying he’d let the fans decide it, but it sure was better than listening to Ray Lewis talk during the media breakfast about the secret society that football is, and how dare that SWATS guy try to penetrate that shroud of secrecy. That’s part of the PROBLEM, Ray Ray. You guys doing your secret shit in the locker room and castigating anyone that dare question what you are doing.
Anyhow, we’re getting closer to the real thing, and I can’t wait.
