Say It Ain't So, Sid!

McCombs Says Tice Will Be Back

Miserly Vikings owner Red McCombs leaks the news to Sid Hartman. ‘Cause nothing says “brilliant coach” like three (going on four) consecutive years of missing the playoffs, in the super-weak NFC, with two superstars in their primes leading the offense. What does Tice have to do to get fired? Have Moss throw a fourth-quarter interception next week, too?

Better is this, a Patrick Reusse column ripping the odious Sean Salisbury:

So, there's the track record for ESPN's Mr. NFL:
Six-for-20 for 113 yards and two interceptions in his biggest start. A 90 percent reduction in his original salary offer and two spots lost on a depth chart as a free-agent negotiator.
This is the NFL sage you're listening to on ESPN's outlets 12 to 14 hours day, seven days a week. This is the larynx that never rests.
