    Default Reed could learn a lot from Plaxico

    Reed could learn a lot from Plaxico and, hopefully, he does
    10/25/2009

    Maybe Jeff Reed should give his former teammate Plaxico Burress a call.

    Burress can be reached at the pay phone at the end of the hall in whatever cell block he's sitting in now at Riker's Island. While you're reading this, maybe as you sit at the kitchen table, eating some breakfast, glancing out the window at some multi-colored trees, Plax is doing what he does every day and what he'll be doing every day for at least the next 19 months.

    Nothing.

    While you're looking forward to going to the Steelers' game against the Vikings or watching it and two or three other NFL games on TV today, Plax is looking forward to the same thing he looks forward to every day - other than the day he walks out of that hell hole.

    Nothing.

    Maybe sitting in a nine-by-seven cell at Riker's seems like a long way from being involved in a stupid, drunken confrontation with a cop outside a bar, but Plax would be able to tell Reed that it's not.

    Remember all those minor incidents with Burress? The annoying ones that cost him a few bucks and were little distractions for the Steelers? They were signs Plax doesn't handle liquor well and drinks too much too often.

    Reed will kick against the Vikings today and might even kick a field goal that will make the difference. But in a perfect world, he would have been inactive the same way Santonio Holmes was almost exactly a year ago for getting caught with marijuana in his car.

    It might have gone a long way toward preventing him from being deactivated from the human race.

    Like Plaxico.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]*[/HIGH-LIGHT] Mike Tomlin's explanation for why Reed avoided being benched and Holmes did not were an insult to the intelligence of every person who heard it.

    Reed didn't get suspended because there's no such thing as a second- or third-string placekicker. Tomlin wants to win the game and his chances of doing that are greatly diminished if someone other than Reed is kicking.

    Tomlin should have been honest and said that it wouldn't be fair to the rest of the team for him to suspend Reed because there is only one kicker on the roster.

    The players understand why Reed will be in uniform today.

    So does anybody else with a brain. What would have been a good lesson for Reed, who is pretty old to still be in need of learning this kind of a lesson, would also have been a gross disservice to the team.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]*[/HIGH-LIGHT] Joshua Cribbs should be the Cleveland Browns starting quarterback. I know, he's never played the position in the NFL and he might be the most dangerous kick and punt returner in the NFL.

    He's also a former college quarterback who should be touching the ball a lot more.

    What might Cribbs do to the Browns' offense? Make it look bad?

    [HIGH-LIGHT]*[/HIGH-LIGHT] ESPN will be televising more than 1,200 college basketball games across all of its platforms this year. Dick Vitale will probably be doing the color on 1,195 of them. If you need me, I'll probably be watching hockey.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]*[/HIGH-LIGHT] Senator Orin Hatch of Utah has taken time out of his busy schedule to ask President Obama to sic the Justice Department on the BCS, which he says constitutes a monopoly.

    The president had said shortly after he was elected that he would, "throw his weight around a little bit," to encourage the NCAA to come up with a playoff system to determine a football champion.

    Two things: First, what about the NFL's monopoly that makes it impossible for the biggest city in Hatch's state to ever have a professional football team?

    Second, what would it take to get the idiots in Washington to focus more on stupid things like the BCS instead of on the things that could actually effect our lives? Notice I said more, not less. That was not a typo.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]*[/HIGH-LIGHT] Because the umpires have been so bad this postseason, there are renewed cries for Major League Baseball to use more replays to correct calls.

    Of course, the idea is to get the calls right.

    Unless you also open up balls and strikes to be checked by a video camera, which nobody is willing to do, you're not really getting it right, are you?

    How is a blown called third strike with the bases loaded any less consequential than a bloop that lands five inches in fair territory?

    Let me lay out my perfect scenario for a wonderful finish to the baseball season. The first game, scheduled for Wednesday, is rained out and so are at least two other games. It goes seven games, which means the earliest Game 7 could be played is Nov. 6. Game 7 is delayed three hours by rain and begins at 11:30 p.m. It goes into extra innings and, in the bottom of the ninth, somewhere around 3 a.m., the winning run scores on a play that the replay shows was blown by the home plate umpire.

    It would be exactly what the Idiots Who Run Baseball deserve.

    Another mediot trying a case in the press and not in court where it belongs.

    IMO, he just lost all credibility as a journalist.

    **** him and his smug bull**** he tries to pass off as doing his job.
