Welcome to the Around The League End Around, a weekly look back at the world of the NFL. Dan Hanzus serves as your guide.
It was a good week for ...
1. Greg Schiano: Have you read a single negative story about Schiano this week? Is this the first time you've seen his name appear on a major website in the past seven days? The Schianos should add Richie Incognito to their Christmas card list.
It was a bad week for ...
What the What? Part I
The wife said that while the two were smoking cigarettes outside of Sidelines, Grant had used the stun gun twice on her butt and once on her thigh. She said that she has burn marks on her butt although she did not request emergency medical treatment.
Since the wager was agreed upon -- text and video proof backed this point up -- Grant was not charged with any type of felonious assault. He got arrested anyway, for owning a stun gun without a concealed carry permit.
What the What? Part II
That's Rob Ford, perhaps better known to the world as Toronto Crack Mayor. On the morning of the most important press conference of his life -- one in which he would admit to using crude illegal narcotics while in office -- Ford thumbed through his neckwear collection in his closet before settling on his NFL novelty tie from 1995.
I could live for 100 more years and not find a more baffling circumstance. You did it, Rob Ford.
#HotTake on Incognito/Martin
This is the space in which you will not read my opinion on the Richie Incognito/Jonathan Martin imbroglio. Don't worry though, if you need another take on the issue, feel free to check in with literally everyone else on Twitter. They're all right, too. Just ask them.
Tweet of the week
Hero of the Week: Nick Foles
One day, hundreds of years from now, historians will find a dusty copy of the NFL record book in some nuclear fallout shelter. In that book, a man named Nick Foles will be listed as the co-record holder of the record for most touchdown passes in a game. Distant generations will come to believe that Foles was the greatest player who ever lived.
Villain of the Week: Schedule maker
My first reaction after realizing I'd be watching the Vikings in prime time for the third time in four weeks.
Murtha is a retired offensive lineman who played with the Dolphins from 2009 until the 2012 preseason. He offers some actual insight into Miami's locker room. There hasn't been enough of that this week.
As per usual, Wess brings it with this detailed breakdown of every relevant running back in football. Actually, the non-relevant guys, too.
Until next time ...
