John Madden would like you to know that he's not interested in this view of Reggie Bush and David Beckham, because he's opposed to doing things from the back.
Keith, that Worst Person in the NFL was absolutely horrific. Please kill the segment now. Please. Truly a "what the fuck" moment.
The Jones Soda rep that greenlighted that plug just committed suicide.

Lance Moore hauls in a pass on first down, as New Orleans starts with the ball in the 2nd half. Mike Karney gets the carry and won't have the first. 3rd and inches. They don't get it on the next play, and Payton has brass ones by going for it this deep in his own territory -- and Brees gets it on the QB sneak. Bush gets a couple of yards on the 2nd down rush after getting stuffed on first. 3rd and 9 now, and David Patton hauls it in for a first down on the sideline. Brees wants to pick on the Seattle CBs badly, and he probably can do it as much as he likes right now, because the Seahawks are compensating to make sure Bush doesn't get his right now.
Bush burrows through for several more, and we hear more from Madden about Bush not being a power back. Aaron Stecker has gotten no yardage, yet Payton wanted him to bust it on 3rd and 3. The Saints punt it to Nate Burleson, who fair-catches on the 14 yard line. Pearl Jam's "Alive" -- what took you guys so long?
Hasselbeck goes to Ingram on 1st down and moves the chains again. Alexander gets nothing as the Saints stuff the line. Hasselbeck gets sacked when trying to rush out of the pocket, and is taken down again on the next play by the unblocked Roman Fletcher. Here comes the punt team. It rolls down to the NO 29.
4 and 1 on your own 30. Go for it.
4 and more than 3 on the 50. Punt
Makes sense. - Hugging Harold Reynolds
Well, it's easier to a get QB sneak with the 4th and inches than try and get 3 near the 50, but point taken.
Why does Shuan Alexander BLOW???? He is absolutely pathetic. How about you try gaining 50 yds you loser. I frickin start you over ADP and you treat me like this??????? - Joe D
This is a condition we call "Roto-Rage." It is particularly prevalent among the many fantasy football owners who have owned Daunte Culpepper over the years, and we are seeing more and more of this among owners of formerly sure things like Steven Jackson and Larry Johnson (LJ's 100+ game today notwithstanding, because that was against the Cincinnati Bungles.)
The Saints are driving it down once again, and David Patton gets into Seattle territory on 2nd and 1 by taking in another Brees pass. Brees overthrows Patton after an offside penalty on Seattle. Aaron Stecker is lucky just to get back to the line of scrimmage on the next rush.
"hey, you have to give a guy a little blow once in a while." - JM (via HHR)
Madden would be familiar with that concept; he does it on the air all the time to Favre, Brady, Peyton Manning, Romo, etc. And we've got a FUMBLE on the part of Reggie Bush, which the Seahawks recover. Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" takes us to break; I'm sure Kurt would have loved being the soundtrack to a sporting event.
Hasselbeck throws it to Pollard for a gain. Alexander rushes for a couple more, and the third is done. 28-10, Saints.
