Albert Haynesworth, Lee Corso, Patriots and the NFL Draft, Titans and Moss
Left with an empty feeling now that Albert Haynesworth's offseason appears to have begun? Thank God for Photoshop. And photos. And the incredibly photogenic No. 92. Kevin Ewoldt at Hogs Haven is running an "alter-a-picture-of-the-big-guy" contest. (After all, the Portis contest was fun, until the crying started.)
There's even a prize and everything, suitable for regifting. Contest closes at 11:59 p.m. Sunday.
Here's the pic:
CORSO'S HEAD: Lee Corso's head is safe. Move along. Nothing more to see here.
The incredible thing about the saga of Corso's Big Giant head, now safely returned to the ESPN Mother Ship after disappearing during the Civil War in Corvallis, is the value assigned to it: $5,000. Five grand. (Sentimental value: $.05.) Seriously. What is that thing made out of?
PATS DRAFT: Remember how you oohed and aahed over the New England Patriots' NFL Draft performance last April? (Even if you hate them with every fiber of your being?) Rick Gosselin's redraft shows that the Patriots got three first-round talents (including Devin McCourty). Trent Williams, the No. 4 overall pick by the Redskins, drops to 17 on Gosselin's list. Yes, we know. It's the Dallas in him.
(The Pats were also onto Randy Moss: They're 7-1 without him; he's 1-8 without them. He's piling up the 0s in Tennessee, where the Titans opted not to aim a pass his way.)
OOF: Steve Politi calls Ilya Kovalchuk "Albert Haynesworth on skates."
JOE T AND THE K BALL: Dan Levy watched "Thursday Night Football" so you didn't have to and has some helpful suggestions for Joe Theismann.
