The Weak Ender: Do Better Eliza

So Rick Fox is with Eliza Dushku? You know, she is still pretty hot. I believe she could totally hook up with somebody who is still playing for the Lakers, instead of embarrassing herself watching her washed up boyfriend on Dancing With the Stars.

THERE IS a classic scene in Pulp Fiction when Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) tells Butch (Bruce Willis) that he “may feel a slight sting. That’s pride (expletive) with you. (Expletive) pride. Pride only hurts. It never helps.”

Somebody should tell Chargers general manager A.J. Smith and enigmatic WR Vincent Jackson.

A 1 p.m. deadline passed Wednesday, meaning that Jackson likely will not be traded this season, and there is speculation that Jackson will not play at all this year. And that is a bummer to some Chargers fans, who hopped that the Chargers were going to play their best players.

Smith certainly is stubborn, meaning it would be a great surprise if Jackson ever plays for the Chargers again. Malcom Floyd and Legedu Naanee looked like they could pick up the pieces well enough. Jackson could be dealt by the Oct. 19 deadline, but he would have to sit out three games, and even then, what kind of impact would he have?

Part of me kind of laughs at a player being hung out to dry like this. Yeah, it's not right, but it is kind of funny.

Jackson could have easily signed his tender, played and become a free-agent last season. But even Jackson realizes that he is a big dope, a DUI waiting to happen. So why sign a tender?

I really want to see what happens to Jackson after spending a year away from football. I kind of hope that the new collective bargaining agreement puts Jackson in the same position next year, forcing him to play for the league minimum or sit out a second year.

The players always say this is a business. But some guys just are not smart about it.

BOISE ST. is playing its last important game before the BCS championship game. Though, it would not be wise to sleep on Nevada. There was an interesting note in the Los Angeles Times on Thursday explaining that Boise State tries to get teams to do home-and-homes at Boise, but no teams outside of the Pac-10 are willing to do it.

So you will only have yourselves to blame when Boise reaches the BCS title game.

But where I am unclear, Boise State and TCU both can make the title game, right? Because if TCU is the only other undefeated team other than Boise St., then it certainly deserves that right.

HAS ANYBODY else noticed that USC keeps tumbling in the polls despite winning? Nice coaching hire. Looks like he is rubbing everybody the wrong way. Although if USC goes undefeated, it deserves to be in a bowl.

Oh wait, no it doesn't.


When does Carl Crawford get to Anaheim?

Of course, Marsellus said that before Butch cut short his rogering. Marsellus might have changed his stance.

Speaking of changing stance, maybe the Times was on to something, after all.

The Chargers made a big mistake by holding on to Vincent Jackson. They lost a top 5 receiver for the season and got nothing in return. AJ Smith is a clown!

Boise State is the only team in the country that plays their last legitimate opponent in September. Because their conference is hot garbage.

They beat VT by fewer points on a neutral field than James Madison beat them in Blacksburg. Maybe Boise should play JMU for the 1-AA championship.

WCT said...

By the way, VT is not in the top 25, so Boise's biggest win of the year is a 3 point last minute squeaker over an unranked team that lost to a 1-AA team. Congrats.

Cal fan would say that Nevada is pretty good.
