This post is not going to be extensive enough to get the TMQR label. It's also about an incident that's already a week old. I am ashamed of myself and I will try to write my usual two shitty copout posts this week as opposed to the single one I wrote last week. Anyways, I'm sure it's painfully clear to everyone that Gregggggg is in the business of pushing certain stories/lessons. Undrafted players who have been cut at one point or another are awesome. Punting is terrible. Tenths of seconds do not actually exist. And of course, many players (particularly those MEGABUCKS GLOREE BOYS) are stupid dumb idiots who do stupid stuff like celebrate excessively because they're morons who only care about themselves. (To his credit, he has occasionally taken the side of the players during certain incidents where they were penalized or fined for TD celebrations. So he's not completely anti-celebration under all circumstances. But he also frequently references the stupid white guy "GRRR I HATE HOW THESE PLAYERS LIKE TO DANCE WHEN THEY MAKE A GOOD PLAY, THEIR EGOS ARE TOO BIG" bullshit. Also, to his discredit, about a hundred different things.)
Now, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if he only pushed his perspective on these items on his readers when events warranted such pushing. I mean, it would still be pretty bad, but if he were always honest about the facts that led to his referencing his perspective, I could maybe tolerate that. Sadly, he's so obsessed with pushing his narrative that he can't even surmount that extremely low threshold for my maybe tolerance. Rather, when he needs to make one of his points, he's more than happy to change facts. You've probably already seen this, but if you haven't, watch it again, and then join me in celebrating Gregg's complete and total assholery.
Single Worst Play of the Season -- So Far: Trailing 31-28, the Redskins faced third-and-8 at the St. Louis 36 with 1:27 remaining. RG3 threw a 7-yard completion to Josh Morgan, advancing Washington to the 29 and field goal range. More concerned with attention for himself than victory for his team, Morgan celebrated by throwing the ball at a Rams defender. Unsportsmanlike conduct pushed Washington back to the 44, where a desperation field goal try sailed far off the mark.
Many sports commentators have noted this knucklehead move by Morgan deprived the Skins of a makeable field goal to force overtime. But consider -- it would have been fourth-and-1 on Les Mouflons' 29. Washington rushed for 176 yards on the game, a 6.1-yard average.
Josh Morgan, you are guilty of the single worst play of the season -- so far.
