So I was reading through comments made by Donte Stallworth’s attorney yesterday. Of course the main topic in Tony Grossi’s piece is that Stallworth could conceivably line up for the Browns this season. A week ago I wouldn’t have thought that possible, and truth be told I’m hoping that it never happens again. Regardless, while going through the piece I found this gem-
Cornwell said Stallworth has been working out to assure he’ll be physically ready to go when cleared to return to the field. “Yesterday at dinner he was complaining that his hamstring was too tight because he was out running hills with Frank Gore, Fred Taylor and Plax [Plaxico Burress]. So he’s been working out,” Cornwell said.
Ok, let’s start with the injury. Does it surprise anyone that Stallworth is hurting after a little physical activity? More hamstring problems huh? Could it be that Donte’ is just not cut out to be a professional athlete? He seems to get hurt all the time, and when he does, his recovery time is terrible. But even putting that aside for a second- why in the world is he working out with Plaxico Burress?
“Bad company corrupts good morals.” I don’t know who thinks pairing Stallworth and Burress is a good idea. I’m not sure if Gore and Taylor are running some kind of house arrest rehab program, but this group needs to be broken up. Or don’t. Better yet, why not replace Gore and Taylor. Let’s throw in Michael Vick and make it a reality show.
Think of it as a Big Brother type show with a touch of Celebrity Rehab and 4th and Long mixed in. Perhaps Michael Irvin could coordinate the football events, and Dr. Drew would be in charge of the rehab. Special guests could include Terrel Owens and Chad Johnson. Wouldn’t that be fun? We’ll call it House Arrest.
Feel free to come up with a better show name in the comments…
