Here’s a rarity — countermoonbattery in the world of televised football:
[P]rior to the Denver Broncos taking on the Cincinnati Bengals on “Monday Night Football,” Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young raised some eyebrows when he used the word “dictator” in a sentence mentioning President Obama and an NFL quarterback.
Young, the former San Francisco quarterback who’s a direct descendant of Brigham Young, was asked how Denver quarterback Peyton Manning would deal with the disguises put forth by the Bengals’ defense.
“Watch for Peyton to speak to the nation, as the president of the United States would speak to the nation tonight,” said Young, now an ESPN analyst. “And tell them, ‘I am the dictator! I am the one that’s gonna take care of everything.”
Maybe the incessant moonbattery that has come to a head with Bob Costas demanding an end to the Second Amendment and Saint Louis Rams taking the field making “hands up don’t shoot” gestures has driven away enough viewers that someone passed down orders to throw a few crumbs to the normal people. Either that or Young had better polish up his résumé.
