He's soooooo bad even Gruden can't apologize for him. I think the Boooos pouring out of the stands may ensure LF leaves the desert. You'll pardon me if I dream about getting him back in the 'burgh.......

the Steelers would never pay that much $ to a WR, although I do like Fitzgerald a lot.

I saw him lose his cool on SC, but I missed what the original question was. Did you hear it?

The guy ask him what was so funny when you are down 19 in the 4th quarter and getting drilled on national TV. It was classic and it was a great question. I loved it!! If that was Ben we would all completely lose our lids!!!

I could go either way on this. One part of me says if I saw Ben yukking it up on the sideline during the losses to the pats* or the Saints, I would be pissed. But they caught one moment of a three hour game. Could have been anything. lineman could have said man, we suck out there . . . it would probably get me to laugh too. One thing is for sure, he didn't handle the postgame presser well.

He might not have handled it well, but the reporter was being a jerk. He asked a question - got an answer. He asked again, got a more terse answer.....He must have asked the same thing three or four times. Enough already, the point of a post game PC is not to see if you can piss the guy off enough for him to yell at you and leave. It might make for entertaining TV but it is garbage.

Can't disagree with you there. As a guy who has been in plenty of post-game pressers, I can tell you that most of the other reporters who were either looking for more soundbites on deadline or were waiting patiently to ask their question, they were probably pretty pissed at the reporter who wouldn't let it go. There are many in the media corps who think they are entitled to ask whatever they want and the players are bound to answer. Maybe this guy is one of them.

But I will say this. I was one of the reporters who covered East Carolina football about 10 years ago or so, while Steve Logan was coach there, and he would make a point of fidning the greenest reporter, and that was me, and just trying to make him feel like an idiot. Mostly on perfectly legitimate questions.

I remember one female reporter from Greenville who was legitimately afraid to ask a question knowing what was coming if he was in a bad mood. Sometimes, you walk away from those pressers feeling like an idiot when you really didn't deserve it, feeling like you should have stood up for yourself but didn't. In this case, DA went straight to the yelling when the question was asked, and I'm guessing the reporter was just sticking up for himself.

:wink:

Anyone doubting now that we got the better head coach? Whiz has totally messed up his QB situation post-Warner and he knew that was going to happen so he had the ability to make moves. If anything it has been proven that Whiz's success was a creation of Curt Warner and not so much about Whiz.

But he does have his Deputy Assistant Associate Vice Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator Russ Grimm helping out :stirpot

Cardinals QB Derek Anderson blows up at reporter after MNF loss
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdo ... nfl-290226 (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Cards-Anderson-blows-up-at-reporter-after-MNF-l?urn=nfl-290226)
By Doug Farrar

You thought that the evening couldn't get any worse for Arizona Cardinals quarterback Derek Anderson(notes) after his team was decimated, 27-6, by the San Francisco 49ers on "Monday Night Football." The defeat took the 3-8 Cards out of any possible playoff race once and for all, left them with their sixth straight defeat, and threw yet more questions at the feet of Anderson and his future as a starting quarterback in the NFL. Anderson completed 16 passes in 35 attempts for 196 yards, no touchdowns, and an interception. He has completed just 53.7 percent of his passes for the season, and at this point, we can be pretty certain that the only reason he's starting is that he provides a more reliably mediocre option at the position than the Cards would get from the rookie ups-and-downs of Max Hall(notes) or John Skelton(notes).

But there was even more to answer for after the game. ESPN cameras caught Anderson and right guard Deuce Lutui(notes) laughing on the sidelines late in the game, when Arizona was down by 18 points.

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt was asked after the game about two of his players laughing and joking on the sideline in the death throes of their season. "I didn't see that, and I'd be disappointed if that was the case," Whisenhunt said. "I didn't sense, with talking to Derek in the fourth quarter, and from talking with our offensive line, that that was the case. So until I see that, I would be hesitant to say anything about it."

Anderson took the podium next and was asked about his seemingly less-than-appropriate reaction.

One reporter, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, asked, "I don't mean this to be sarcastic, or pointed, but that went out on Monday night television, and a lot of fans are talking about it right now as a big problem with this team. Can you put into context what was going on at that moment, and what caused you to ..."

Anderson cut him off. "What Deuce and I talk about is nobody else's business."

Somers: "But why was something funny when you're down 18 points in the fourth quarter?"

Anderson: "It wasn't funny -- I wasn't laughing about anything."

Somers: "But the cameras showed you laughing ..."

Anderson (cutting the reporter off again): "OK, that's fine. That's fine, that's fine, that's fine. That's fine. I'm not laughing about it. You think this is funny? I take this [bleep] serious! Real serious! I put my heart and soul into this [bleep] every single week!"

Somers: "All I'm saying is that the cameras showed you ..."

Anderson (cutting him off yet again): "I'm' just telling you right now what I do every single week! [voice starts to rise] Every single week! I put my freakin' heart and soul into this, I study my ass off! I don't go out there and laugh! It's not funny! Nothing's funny to me! I don't want to go out there and get embarrassed on 'Monday Night Football' in front of everybody!"

[Rewind: Gold medalist asks reporter: 'Are you stupid?']

Somers: "But that's why I'm asking you ..."

Anderson: "I'm telling you right now! We were talking! Deuce and I were talking!"

Somers: "What was the context of the ..."

Anderson: "I'm done." (walks away from the podium),

It's easy to understand Anderson's frustration -- being asked to put your gestures and moods into context after getting blown out in front of the country may seem a bit ridiculous. But quarterbacks are leaders, and leaders have an obligation to lead by example, even if it seems unrealistic that every player will react the same way to adverse circumstances. One reporter told ESPN.com that Anderson went back to the locker room, kicked an inanimate object, and departed.

This is no way for any quarterback to act. You'll occasionally see the best and more hyper-competitive quarterbacks bounding from a press conference in a snit if something hits them the wrong way (as I remember, Dan Marino had a particular tendency to do that). But when you're playing at a backup level at best, and you appear to the world that you're not serious about your craft, it would seem smart to take advantage of any opportunity to explain yourself. Anderson just made himself look petulant, and that's not going to sit well with anyone. The Cardinals are in freefall, and it's hard to imagine that Anderson, who signed a two-year, $7.25 million contract in March of 2010, will be in the team's future plans when it comes time to pick up his $3.9 million base salary in 2011.

Derek Anderson becomes the butt of NBA jokes

Posted by Michael David Smith on December 1, 2010, 10:38 AM EST

If Magic Johnson does get involved with moving an NFL team to Los Angeles, it’s safe to say Derek Anderson will not be that team’s quarterback.

Johnson was one of two NBA types who ripped Anderson on Tuesday for laughing on the sideline during the Cardinals’ loss to the 49ers, then blowing up at a reporter afterward.

“I would have beat his butt or killed him,” Johnson told Jimmy Kimmel. “That quarterback did something that was very wrong. . . . You’re the quarterback. That means you’re the leader of the team. They take on your personality. So now everybody will be laughing. Everybody won’t care. Not on my team. He would have been cut for that.”

Meanwhile, our friends at Out of Bounds pass along the video of Orlando’s Dwight Howard doing his best Anderson impression when speaking to reporters Tuesday night. It’s a hilarious, spot-on impression.

So Anderson’s laughter on the sideline and his post-game tirade have officially crossed over beyond the NFL. Like Dennis Green and “The Bears are who we thought they were,” or Jim Mora and “Playoffs?!?” this seems destined to be the moment for which Anderson is most remembered.
