The Origins of Bernard Hopkins' Disdain for Donovan McNabb

The Origins of Bernard Hopkins' Disdain for Donovan McNabb

Others have hinted about the origins of Bernard Hopkins disdain for former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, but B-Hop set the record straight last night on Daily News Live when he told Michael Barkann about the time McNabb looked at him funny at an Eagles practice way back in 2004 and failed to shower him with praise. Something like that.

Also of interest from the segment, Bernard Hopkins says he has the "ability to look through a man's soul and watch his actions, and see if he really means what he really wants. That separates the average from the greats."

Almost as powerful as a right hook, I'm sure.

I can't say I agree with B-Hop on any of his McNabb views, but at least he admits the whole McNabb dust-up helped him sell some tickets to his fight. Salesman Executioner.

New York media talking head loses his mind over Giants awful offensive line

Can't say we're super familiar with the work of Don La Greca, whose bio says he's a co-host on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say he's either a total joy to listen to or absolutely a chainsaw to your ears.

One or the other, tough to say.

But it's hard to argue with the impressiveness of the rant he went on regarding the New York Giants offensive line the other day.

The stats he quotes are just hard to argue with in any capacity.

Regardless of how you feel about advanced stats, I thinkk we can all agree the Eagles D-Line is gonna go all Pythagoras on the Eli this weekend.
