Igor Olshansky is brilliant
Igor Olshansky is the dumbest player in the NFL. That's not hyperbole. The vacant eyes, the mongoloid voice...he''s got it all. Plus, the guy's a goddamm commie.
I cant find any video of why he's being such a whiny little bitch, but a couple of seasons ago, Tommy Nales kind-of* took a cheap shot at his knees as Plummer was spiking the ball to stop the clock on a last ditch drive at the end of the game. Here's the write-up over at Fan House. That dead-ass You Tube link is such a tease.
I especially like how he blames the officials for the success in our running game and then in the very next rambling thought, lays out exactly why our scheme is so successful. But I especially like how he informs the viewer that if we ran Pittsburgh's scheme we'd be a bunch of wussies.
Seriously, this video is awesome.
*Blatent homerism, it was a cheapshot. Denver's O-Line catches a lot of shit for being dirty, but that's kind of the nature of cut-blocking. It's going at someone's knees...legally. Denver never gets called for illegal crack-backs or chops. Bitch about it all you want, but half the teams in the league move laterally at the snap and cut the backside pursuit, and more and more teams are making the leap (even the degenerate Raiders). I've only seen two or three plays that I would consider "dirty" and most of those were made by the long-gone George Foster. This Nalen play though? Yeah that was dirty.
