Maybe Jason Campbell should rent the movie: “He’s Just Not That Into You.”
Talk about some clear signals! First, the Redskins fail to give him a contract extension going into his last year of his rookie contract. Then the owner nearly trades you for Jay Cutler.
Dude. Enjoy your last year as a Redskin.
Maybe more troubling for us Skins fans was THIS whopper of a paragraph in the Washington Post story on Saturday.
“Encouraged after his meeting yesterday with Washington Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder, quarterback Jason Campbell said he has put aside his frustration about the team’s pursuit of Jay Cutler and is determined to become “the type of quarterback Mr. Snyder wants.”
Um, what the fuck!?
“The type of quarterback Mr. Snyder wants?”
Is the owner now the fucking QB coach as well? You must be kidding me. What kind of QB is that, exactly? Should Campbell put on a Peyton Manning mask and yuk it up in a southern drawl?
Well, surely our head coach, who happened to PLAY the position a little himself back in the day, would have something to say about this whole ugly situation, right?
Um, not exactly.
Zorn wasn’t quoted in this story. Neither was the useful stooge Vinny Cerrato. Vinny did issue a statement. “We met with Jason today and had a candid discussion. We told Jason that when Jay Cutler became available, we, like many other NFL teams, spoke with the Broncos. We are all on the same page and we are moving forward.”
Yeah, these clowns are on the same page alright. Page two. “NFL Franchise Management for Dummies.”
Then there was this gem. Apparently, Dan Snyder still likes to get his off-season freak on! He was spotted by Norm! in the LV Review Journal at the trendy night club N9NE with his favorite Redskin! I’ll give you three guesses and here’s a hint: It wasn’t Shaun Suisham!
Let’s hope the Masters has sufficiently dialed back the golf course to allow for weekend roars and daring attacks on the back nine come Sunday.
Jay Flemma of CyberGolf goes inside the numbers, and breaks down how and where Tom Fazio and the grumpy old men in green jackets ruined the place since 2002.
There hasn’t been a back-nine 31 or better in over 3 years by anybody in the field. That’s where the course used to shine. It was attackable. No longer. We’ll see this year. At least the weather looks succulent this year, unlike the artic Augusta weeks of the last two.
From the Sydney Morning Herald…
HUMBLE, Texas: Greg Norman could hardly have conjured a more disastrous finish to take into this week's US Masters. The former world No.1 was humbled in Humble when he rounded out an otherwise promising tune up at the Houston Open with double bogey and quadruple bogey on his last two holes - finding the water twice on the 18th. Bogeys at the 11th, 12th and 14th were followed by a birdie at 15 before a double bogey at 17. And Norman capped it with an eight on the par-four 18th when he hit into the water twice, once on his lay-up shot and then again on his approach.
REACT: Great to know that this choking guppy, remains, a choker. Let’s pray he’s somehow in the final groups on Sunday at Augusta, because you KNOW how it’s gonna finish.
Kudos to Brittany Lincicome who eagled 18 with a laced driver-hybrid on Sunday to win by 1 at the Nabisco.
This lovely lass caught my eye about 5 years ago when she briefly led the US Women’s Open. Her smile is just pure sunshine in a bottle.
That, and she’s proven to have 100 compression ovaries. You go, girl! I’d shine her irons with my tongue, if you know what I mean.
How was Michelle Wie’s weekend? So bad, that TV networks - usually eager to show her no matter how many strokes behind the leaders - couldn’t even justify a token look-in. She shot 81-81 on Friday and Saturday to move safely out of sight, and out of mind.
REMEMBER: She plays with the men, because just playing against women would be “boring.” Her words. 60 Minutes interview, 5 years ago.
