The Quarterback Whisperer

Filed under: actual action, football, google nonsense — nedryerson @ 3:34 am


Heather Burns works magic with timely advice. Hakeem Archer needs help with fundamentals. Gil Thorp will soon be free to pursue other interests. Randy Weiss is still looking for his first win on the PBA tour.


  1. Randy Weiss must wonder why Gil issued him a lacrosse helmet when everyone else got a football helmet.

I don’t think I’ve missed one since Labor Day, but I could be mistaken…

  6. Love the “quarterback whisperer” thing — thought I missed something too, like why they allow this crazy girl to be down on the field and talking (“whispering”) to the players?
