Blair Walsh is ticked off and that’s a good thing according to the Minnesota Vikings. Now that he’s angry he’ll make extra points and kick the ball where he’s supposed to. Before, back when he was just getting paid more than a million dollars, and wasn’t mad, he was not doing those things.
Being mad in the NFL is very important. Earlier this week, Pernell McPhee told his Bears teammates that they must stay pissed off. Apparently, they were not pissed off while losing 6 of their first 7 games, but they were pissed off last weekend when they beat the Vikings. Maybe that’s where Blair Walsh learned how to be ticked.
But where did the Bears learn? Perhaps from Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Jets quarterback was pissed off back in October and vowed to be pissed off going forward. This pleased Todd Bowles. Pissed off Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions since then. The Jets are 1-1 in that stretch.
You know what pisses off Cole Beasley? People doubting him. Cole Beasley. That’s why he’s always pissed off.
Of course, being pissed isn’t always a positive. Charles James was pissed at Texans fans earlier this season.
So I guess you have to be pissed, just at the right stuff. The Packers are pissed about losing 3 of their last 4 games. Like someone pissed in their Cheerios. That has to piss you off according to Mike Daniels.
So losing pisses you off. And so does getting fired. Bruce Arians was pissed when the Steelers fired him. He’s fine now, just pissed. Probably because his team just gets angry. They’re only 3-4-1, so maybe they should get pissed.
