Guyism.com has the 20 best GIFs of the weekend (which includes an intense ear pick by LSU coach Les Miles) while SportsPickle.com has its weekly look at what NFL.com would look like today if the site used honest headlines.
Skip The Inside JokesOne of the NFL items from yesterday that got major play across the Web was Fox NFL Sunday co-host Terry Bradshaw using the phrase "chasing a bucket of chicken" while voicing highlights of a Reggie Bush touchdown run. Bradshaw's co-workers have come out today to clarify the comment and explained that the line was a joke about his co-star, Jimmy Johnson. In the clip, Bradshaw says, "Look at this, Jimmy. Like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day." The former Cowboys coach tweeted today that Bradshaw was referring to him, and revealed that he eats four pieces of chicken on the set every Sunday. Fox's studio host Curt Menefee was stronger in his defense of Bradshaw. He said the "controversy" is much ado about nothing. When you listen to the full quote, it's not hard to believe the Fox guys. But maybe the lesson here is to leave the inside jokes off the air.
I Hope It Was In A Strong CaseWhen Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin and Panthers Cam Newton got together on the field after Carolina's win over Washington yesterday, the quarterbacks exchanged pleasantries and phone numbers. Right there. On the field. A number was entered into an iPhone.
LeftoversJohn Brewer, of Los Angeles, says, "I told my friend if you didn't post Adrian Peterson's 74-yard run in A.M. Hot Clicks, you were an idiot. So take that for what it's worth. Did you not see AP juke two Seahawks out of their shoes? Probably one of the top five runs of his career. Please make up for this travesty by posting in the PM Hot Clicks." John, consider it posted. I also forgot to post this video of referee Tony Corrente getting salty with another official, which was heard by all after he left his mic open. Lastly, the other highlight that was omitted from A.M. Hot Clicks was this touchdown dance by Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith.
