And Another Thing


Dumbest statement ever

Well, maybe not "ever." But Keyshawn Johnson definitely has become a serious candidate for the coveted B.S. Award in the "Dumbest Thing Said In 2009 By An Out-Of-Work Football Player Who Somehow Doesn't Know Much Of Anything About Football, Apparently."

Keyshawn's contribution?

Apparently he said on the air this week (in his capacity as an "analyst") that the Colts were the worst 14-0 team in history.

Think about that for a minute. OK, for a second, then.

That's really all it takes to figure out that even if the Colts are the worst 14-0 team in history, they're still one of great teams in history.

How many teams have gone 14-0 in the NFL before? Three? So saying they're the worst 14-0 team in history is a little like saying Abraham Lincoln is the worst president ever to guide America through a civil war. Or that Buzz Aldrin is the worst astronaut ever to be the second man to step foot on the moon.

Dumb. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
