We have a new clubhouse leader for play of the year. The Steelers were trailing 14-7 with six seconds to go in the first half. Chris Boswell’s 35-yard field goal was blocked by Sherrick McManis and recovered by Marcus Cooper at the 29.
But on third-and-short plays that Super Bowl, the Niners suddenly no longer had to worry about Stanley Wilson. Mind-blowing, still.
Wouldn’t such a session and so many others that could be inexpensively produced — be more grip-and-hold than boo-ya?
Perhaps during NBC News’s mirth-filled salute to the 25th anniversary of WWE’s weekly show “RAW,” which airs on NBC-owned USA, there was no time to list participating wrestlers who died, mostly of job-related drug overdoses, on Vince McMahon’s and Linda McMahon’s watch. Of course, such a necrological roll would’ve taken quite a while.
Mrs. McMahon now leads the Small Business Administration, a Cabinet-level position within the Trump administration. Her previous sense of business included the sale to kids of WWE T-shirts picturing an arrow pointed toward the crotch, the visible stamped message reading, “Suck It!”
Then there was the commerce attached to the indescribably pornographic in-ring skits which she and her husband planned and in which they participated for the enjoyment of kids.
Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown in an incident involved Vontaze Burfict, Adam Jones and Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter.
Beathard replaced the struggling Brian Hoyer late in the second half of last week’s loss to the Redskins, nearly leading the Niners back from a 17-0 deficit.
Ochocinco isn’t for the “act like you’ve been there” crowd. What was your favorite — or least favorite — Ochocinco touchdown celebration? He enraged some by putting a fake Hall of Fame jacket on after one of those scores. Johnson became more a side show later in his career, and he has faced legal issues since his final season with the Patriots in 2011.
You can’t put Favre much higher because he’s adored by just as many fans, especially in Green Bay. Yet those same Packers fans were tested when Favre played for the Jets, then the rival Vikings. The whole charade late in his career — from the constant waffling about retirement to the alleged texts to Jenn Sterger — cast Favre in a much different light. He became a parody fit for a Frank Caliendo impersonation. That’s why this spot feels about right.
