They mean, like, in a crowded elevator or something, right?

Would he also scream at his wife at an Oakland mall because she was looking at a pair of shoes for too long and then make her walk 3 steps behind him?

My image of hero Joe Montana was shattered a long time ago. I did always wonder if the reason he didn't do much TV analyst stuff was because insiders knew he was a psycho a hole.

I remember his induction speech from the Hall of Fame. That guy came across as dumb as a sack of hammers. Howie Long was far more engaging a speaker.

Subby doesn't understand that from 2005 ish to 2009, Hass was one of the better QBs in the NFL, and certainly at the top of the NFC.  He may not be an all-time great, but he was very, very good.

Yeah, Hasselbeck is an almost-was, he was very close to being moved into the HoF QB column for a couple of years, but things didn't fall that way.  He's very durable and has a good arm and knows the game, but he never quite put it all together.

He was the last in a long, long line of Seahawks QBs with slow feet and a slow release that had a couple of good years.

What am I missing here?  Seems like a pretty average Wiki page, no more or less detailed than those of some of the comparable QBs of his era (McNabb, Plummer, Palmer, etc.).

...well, to be fair, he WAS playing for Seattle, which tends to, until last year, go completely unnoticed by the sports media.  Also, he had, early in his career, the very Farvian technique that Holmgren called "the whirlybird," in which, when panicked, he'd just throw the goddamned thing into the air.

If you think that's bad, you should read Vince Young's page, which I'm fairly sure he edits himself in his considerable free time.

I spent some time in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. Joe was a Ringgold graduate, and even had a bridge named for him (the longest and highest span in the Pennsylvania Turnpike system). And everyone there talked about what a raging asshole he was because he acted like he was born playing quarterback for Notre Dame.

Supposedly, the reason he was one of the few Super Bowl MVPs that didn't show up for the pregame show at Super Bowl XL was that he expected to be paid for it.

Because he is a sports figure his Wikipedia article ought to be full of loud, ESPN-like proclamations of how uneven his play is, and sports-message-board gripes about how he "sucks ass" and "can't throw the ball"

If it's full of complete sentences, I doubt it's Young editing it.
