I'm a DK Metcalf Fan, but He Looks Like an Absolute Idiot Here (This Blog is Not About His Mold Hair)
Last night, the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks 23-20 in OT. I didn't have action on the game, but I was rooting for the Seahawks for fantasy purposes + I loathe (but respect) the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Let's fast forward to the second to last play of regulation. Seahawks are down 20-17, on the Steelers 35, right on the cusp of field goal range with zero timeouts left. DK Metcalf caught a pass with 15 seconds left by the sideline and inexplicably fought for extra yards, ended up fumbling, and chaos ensued.
Luckily for Seattle, Swain recovered the fumble, and DK's catch was reviewed for some reason. After it was confirmed, they spiked the ball, kicked the field goal, and forced overtime.
By now, you probably know that the Seahawks lost. They were able to survive the DK brain fart for a moment, but not Geno Smith turning back into a pumpkin; granted, TJ Watt made an outstanding play on the ball.
As a blogger, I am Ike and hyperbole is Tina, but my jaw dropped at the lack of awareness by DK on that play. You cannot afford to fight for extra yards in that spot. Whatever is Madden awareness rating is, chop it in half! He was about to go out of bounds naturally, then fought to stay in bounds just to fumble the second a defender made contact. It's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen on the gridiron. It makes the Colts swinging gate fail look brilliant. Had the Seahawks lost the game right there, this play is all anybody is talking about today.
I mean, people were still talking about it, like Hall of Fame Tight End Shannon Sharpe.
I'm not a big Shannon guy (way too much of a Patriot hater), but there's no denying his status as one of the greatest TEs ever to play the game. TBH I was shocked he didn't make the #NFL100 roster.
Maybe since DK was born in 1997, he doesn't have any sense of NFL history? That could explain this disrespect.
I can't tell if the emoji meant he was joking, but calling Shannon Sharpe a "lil boy" is simply untrue.
Rightfully so, Shannon talked his shit while also bringing God into the mix in a capital V passive-aggressive way.
This is where things get crazier than fighting for extra yards on the sideline when you're already in field goal range and out of timeouts.
Did you click on that Shannon thirst trap? Washed up "wanna be" ???? That man looks like he could go out and catch 5 for 75 and TD tomorrow. Oh, and he has three rings and a gold jacket.
After getting dragged online (presumably, it's 11, and I'm not wasting valuable time digging through tweets ), perhaps DK did a little Wikipedia research and realized he done fucked up now???
FTR, I like DK Metcalf. He's the frontman of my fake band fantasy team, "DK and the Diva Kupps," I wish I could go back in time and force the Patriots to take him over bum ass N'Keal Harry (maybe Brady's still here?), but this whole exchange was a #badlook. Do you know how bad you have to fuck up for me to side with Shannon Sharpe? I might've not been consciously alive, but I'll never forget/forgive this hilarious burn!
Regarding the blog title. YeeeEsssshh.
