EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Golden Calf of Bristol got the fans fired up with a dazzling 20-yard run in the fourth quarter, but threw an interception three plays later and the Carolina Panthers held on for a 17-12 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday night.
The Jets (0-3) still haven't scored a touchdown through three preseason games.The Golden Calf of Bristol faced a third-and-16 from the Jets 34 and ran around in the backfield, eluded a tackle attempt by Ryan Van Bergan and took off and slipped through a few other tackle attempts by the Panthers (2-1) before being taken down for a 20-yard gain by Reggie Smith. The Golden Calf of Bristol pumped both fists and yelled at the crowd chanting "Tee-boww! Tee-boww!" But three plays later, The Golden Calf of Bristol threw an easy interception to Smith.The Golden Calf of Bristol had another chance to get the Jets in the end zone, but threw four straight incompletions to end the game.
This is precisely why I hate The Golden Calf of Bristol.*
The game lasted 60 minutes and had 4 different lead changes. Both teams' starters played for 2.5 quarters. There were over 100 other players on the field: the reigning NFL ROY, a QB who has played in 2 AFCCG's, 3 different 1000 yard rushers, probably 20+ pro bowlers, and yet all ESPN can be bothered to write about is the 15 minutes of the game that the backup qb was on the field.
*All The Golden Calf of Bristol hate is directed not at him as a person, as he seems to be a perfectly nice individual, but at the media that would literally get down on bended knee and blow him just for a sound clip.
