The Viking's Vincent Shiancoe Doesn't Think Highly of Darren Sharper

Posted By on Wed, Jun 2, 2010 at 9:53 PM

What is it with the Saints and guns recently? First there was that idiot last year that let Saints fans shoot up his 60-inch television after New Orleans beat the Redskins, then there was Drew Brees' much-publicized trip to visit the troops and now the Viking's Vincent Shiancoe gives us this:

If anything, Shiancoe is a very confused individual. After all, the only thing Sharper did was say that "X marks the spot" in regards to Brett Favre's ankle come the start of the season (that is, if Favre even decides to play at all). Not only is this not new (the Saints famously said they'd be trying to take out every QB during the playoffs last year) it's pretty tame when it comes to smack talk. You also have to give Sharper credit for putting his paycheck on the line to make sure Shiancoe has less than three catches and doesn't make it into the end zone.


Shiancoe, though, seems to think that Sharper's comments are worthy of comparing the Saints' safety to a guy who claimed responsibility for the death of thousands of innocent civilians on American soil. How else are people supposed to take this? Is Shiancoe saying that Osama bin Laden and Sharper are the same person? Is a picture of bin Laden not enough to draw Shiancoe's ire that he has to write "I'm Darren Sharper" before using said picture as target practice?


Then again, football players aren't paid to think. And really, this just makes the Saints' season-opener that much more exciting.  Just about two months until training camp opens, people. That's when the real fun starts.
