Move over Lombardi, Heisman, Nagurski, Thorpe or any other football human that has an award named after them. There is officially a new king in the football awards community. I introduce to you the Clausen, Tebow, Gabbert, Sanchez, Schaub, Osweiler, Leaf, Russell, Dilfer, Boller, Leinart, Weinke, Harrington, Carr, Couch, Peterman award. Each week I will be handing out this award to the QB that displayed an extreme proficiency in being terrible.
Lets get to this weeks nominees:
1. Nathan Peterman: You have to respect a man that is so dedicated to the award that even though his name is already on the award he keeps trying to win it every single time he’s on the field. Lets take a look at the stats.
Not great Nate, not great. 50 Attempts for less than 200 yards and 3 picks is actually kind of impressive. DISCLAIMER* not all 3 picks were Peterman’s fault but when your an interceptionaholic it’s hard to stay away. He needs to throw them. They are his drug. Here are the highlights.
Good Job, Good Effort Nathan.
2. Sam Darnold: Sam has been flirting with the CTGSSOLRDBLWHCCP award for weeks now. He started hot but seems to have fallen off quite a bit now that the Jets are the Jets again. Let’s take a look at the stats and highlights.
Here’s what makes Darnold’s performance so amazing, all of those interceptions were BAD interceptions. Like what the fuck was he thinking interceptions. Not only did he throw 4 interceptions but he threw 4 interceptions in a 13-6 game and one of them was a pick 6. Single handedly lost the game for the Jets. Hats off to you Mr Darnold.
3. Jamarcus Russell: Absolutely incredible. Jamarcus hasn’t taken a snap in the NFL in almost 10 years but he somehow has found his was onto the nominees list for this week. Are you asking why? Here is why.
He’s my winner. Your time will come Darnold but this week my hat goes off to Jamarcus Russell. You should know that I respect lazy and not giving a fuck but this is an entirely different level. This is what the award is about. Going out there every week and just being as shitty as you can. Jamarcus is the poster boy for this award and I can’t thank him enough.
