I think the ultimate was NFC Playbook. I really could care less about media attention, by Sterling Sharpe's comments as to why he would pick the Lions over the 49ers this week was pure comedy. He has three "solid" reasons. The Lions kicker (because Jason Hanson has been with the team 21 years), their linebackers, and the TE Brandon Pettigrew. Wow. The kicker, the linebackers, and the TE. He must think we have Mike Cofer, Hannibal Navies, Derek Smith (of 2005), and Billy Bajema back there.
Yeah, I saw that. The funny part is that he shows Pettigrew drop a TD pass, but goes onto say he like the Lions TEs because "they came to play" and that Pettigrew went back to the huddle and continued to play hard. WTF does that mean ?
Then he starts bragging about Hanson, and McNabb mentions Akers under his breath, and Sharpe tells him that this is his segment and that he didnt want to talk about Akers, only Hanson.
Weak argument IMO. Sterling is a Niner hater bc we owned the NFC along with the Cowboys during his tenure. I think he was on that GB team in 1990 when Montana stomped them into oblivion....
