Genius at work. Quiet please.

Sometimes I just shake my head at things athletes say. The latest example is Pittsburgh Steeler linebacker, Joey Porter. Joey's words of wisdom this week involve his calling out the Colts for their unwillingness to give him a free ride in their upcoming game. --- "They don't want to just sit there, line up and play football... they want to try to catch you off guard. They don't want to play smash-mouth football, they want to trick you. ... They want to catch you substituting. Know what I mean? They don't want to just call a play, get up there and run a play. They want to make you think. They want it to be a thinking game instead of a football game." in other words Joey, you want them to make you as comfortable as possible, disregard any advantage they might have, and go away from their strengths (here's a hint Joey: Colt football isn't smash mouth) . I'm sure this type of rhetoric is going to cause Tony Dungy to throw out the game plan just to stick it to Mr. Porter. ---Or not.

Looks like thinking isn't his strength.

Lets just say that this is not a new thing for Porter, who a couple years ago, he and Sapp had words when he said somethings about the Buccaneers during our superbowl year. This guy can not think that is his problem
