It's the end of the year, that fun time when you have a chance to look at the year that was. I wanted to hurry up and get this post up before more teams became highly dysfunctional and required a write up--I'm talking to you, New York Jets. It's been an insanely eventful year in the NFL, full of drama, deep dysfunction, and bad coaching.
I hate Ben Roethlisberger. I dislike him so much that you won't find his image on this post. I will not have that awful face on my blog.

It was another rough Sunday for The Sports Muse. A few posts featuring updates from the past few days in the world of sports are due, but until then, reader Joe Camp shared a video so amazing I had to share it with you. It is a compilation of some of the best lines in sports history put to music. This video is heavy on the NFL side but includes the important presence of Allen Iverson's infamous "practice" sound bite. The video has been on the interwebs for over a year so you may have seen it before, but if so it's worth another look.
While watching a game I don't care to speak of ever again this past weekend, I decided that I needed to hate San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers more and lay off Tom Brady for a bit. As soon as I made this decision, news of Brady going to a hair clinic to investigate options for hair plugs hit the internet. I was nice. I said nothing about how the thought of a balding Tom Brady filled my heart with happiness and light. But I am only human. When news broke that Tom Brady was the new face and feet for UGG Australia, the snarky comments began writing themselves.
If we've learned anything from the 2010 NFL season, we have learned that quarterback meltdowns are awesome. So entertaining. So many implications and subsequent story lines. Quarterback meltdowns equal endless entertainment and delight. Witness the latest subject of QB hot mess-ness: Arizona Cardinals quarterback Derek Anderson.
So much football, so little time. As always it was a busy and exciting weekend for NFL action, so let's get to it.
