Quotes / Fatal Flaw

You're confused? How'd you lose? Why'd you drop your jaw?
Lost your shot? You forgot, about Murphy's Law?

Then they got Brett Favre and I enjoyed 95% of a pleasant season with him until all the interceptions and dong shots took over. Now there's Adrian Peterson, and given everything that has transpired with Peterson in the past six months, I find myself genuinely surprised that we didn't discover he was an insane asshole years ago...Why couldn't he be normal? Why couldn't he just NOT beat the piss out of his kid? Other teams have normal players. Is it so goddamn hard? I JUST WANT TO SEE YOU RUN, YOU JACKASS.
