Somewhere, in Heaven, the angels are singing the praises of throwing off your back foot. (Brett Favre Legacy Update!)


From Slate:

OK, so I finally watched Redskins-Cowboys, which wasn't a professional football game so much as three hours of grown men writing Tony Romo's name all over their Trapper Keepers. Is Romo now on that Favre-ish plane of existence where everything he does gets accompanied by cherubim and harp music and Ed Werder?
When we last saw Brett's reputation, people were speculating that he might end up doing time in Miami, and he was, in terms of importance, caught between a serial killer and sludge.

But now, in the same span of time that saw Tony Romo go from being "the guy who can't handle a snap in a playoff game" to the "gutsy" "warrior" who inspires other players to get into the game, we've seen Favre elevated beyond the scandals of Croc-Gate to a heavenly plane of existence.

What a difference a little retirement makes. Last year, Romo would likely have snapped your head off if you said his play was Favre-like. (It was, in almost every sense of that word.) This year, saying the same thing makes Romo at the least a virtue to Favre's seraphim.

Also, I didn't know who Ed Werder was until I googled him. Turns out he has very little to do with Heaven at all, but did once get caught in the middle of a "controversy" that shows how little ESPN/sports reporting has to do with "journalism," and also demonstrates how difficult it is for reporters to have to kowtow to the people they report on, lest they be excluded from getting information to report.

(For the record, I didn't create the shirt shown on this post. But I would have.)

Did Dallas get a new center yet? It was atrocious watching that guy early snapping all the time. At home, even! Did Jason Garrett even have them practice or did he forget the lockout's over? Though it was funny when he hit Romo in the balls with it.
