Third Hand Newz
PETRINO QUITS ON FALCONS
In a shocking move, Falcons coach Bobby Petrino left the team and the NFL to accept the head coaching job at the University of Arkansas on Tuesday.
Being that the Falcons almost to a man all hated Petrino's guts, it's not surprising that they had some choice words directed at him. Lawyer Milloy said he felt like he's been "sleeping with the enemy", which makes me ask the question of why he was sleeping with his coach. Joey Harrington questioned Petrino's manhood, and when JOEY HARRINGTON is questioning your manhood, you know you have grown a vagina.
An interesting twist on this is that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was the guy who called Falcons owner Arthur Blank to request permission for the Razorbacks to interview Petrino. Blank said he would not give permission, but that Jones could speak to GM Rich McKay about it if he wished. McKay said he also did not give permission. But here we are, and Petrino is the head football coach of the University of Arkansas. Sounds like everything is on the up and up.
HE WHO CASTS THE FIRST STONE
Wellity, wellity, wellity. As we all brace ourselves for the 100-0 beating the Patriots are fittin to lay on the Jets in the Spygate Revenge game, it comes out that when the Jets played at New England last year, a Jets employee was escorted from the premises for shooting video from an unapproved location.
The Jets claim that they had the Patriots permission to do this, the Patriots deny they gave any such permission. I think the whole thing is completely moot. The Jets could have Biff's Sports Almanac at their disposal and there is still no way they are coming within 40 points of the Patriots this weekend.
WIDE RECEIVER CATFIGHT
Terrell Owens held court with reporters yesterday, and read the riot act to former Cowboys receiver and current ESPN guy Keyshawn Johnson. Keyshawn was ragging on TO this past weekend on ESPN's pregame show, asking why he hasn't given credit to Keyshawn's patron and last year's Cowboys coach, Bill Parcells, for some of the success of this years' team. TO answered yesterday by going off on Keyshawn, saying things such as that they both were drafted the same year, Keyshawn was a #1 pick, TO was a third round pick, but TO is still playing and Keyshawn isn't. He then challenged Keyshawn to leave ESPN and return to the Cowboys and try and take his job. Meowwwww.
