mtpackersfan has a piece below where he talks about an ESPN writer who thinks Brady deserves the League MVP award this year. Let them say what they want.
Rodgers alluded to the absurdity of Skip Bayless harping on how over-rated he is, saying he's the sports journalism version of a shock jock, and that seems to me just about right. There's an old expression that a grand jury would indict a ham sandwich, and that premise seems to have been demonstrated by an article at NFL.com where the author argues that because the Colts have been so abjectly horrible, Peyton Manning deserves the MVP title.
Yeah, despite that the P stands for Player. It's not that I hate the Player, it's just that . . . doesn't he have to, y'know, play?
Well, heck, wouldn't the Packers be the BEST. TEAM. EVAH! if Jim Brown suited up for them? Where does the absurdity stop?
The fact is, people like this try to impress you with demonstrating just how far up their asses they can stick their heads. It's a form of argumentative contortionism that's meant to display just how clever they are and to garner clicks. It may do that, but when all is said and done, it's just insulting . . . not least to Peyton Manning.
