“The solipsist disquietude of consciousness, seeing itself in all its adventures, a captive of itself, comes to an end here: true exteriority is in this gaze which forbids my conquest. Not that conquest is beyond my too weak powers, but I am no longer able to have power, Je ne peux plus pouvoir.”

Here's what Michael Strahan had to say about Plex Burress quitting on a crucial play in last Sunday's devastating loss to the Tenn Titans:
"It's a shame," Strahan said on the radio Monday. "You can't give up. You can't quit, because you're not quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on us … we work too hard to have that type of stuff happen. I don't quite understand what his lack of motivation is in those types of situations. But I'm going to try to see what it is, and if I can talk to him about it. He's too good for that."
After making those comments during a radio interview on Monday, Strahan pretty much denied the statements and tried to intimidate an ESPN reporter during a press conference later in the week. Flubby at Kissing Suzy Kolber calls out Strahan in an impassioned and, not surprisingly, well-written post.

Actually, Joey Porter’s Pit Bulls heard from a “good source” back in December 2005, before the Steelers won the Super Bowl, that a friend of a friend has a daughter who is a friend of one of Bill Cowher’s daughters … who revealed that no matter what happened with the rest of the 2005 season, Mr. Bill was planning to buy a home in the Raleigh area and move on to his alma mater, North Carolina State, as the head football coach and Athletic Director ... sort of a Joe Paterno type of job. But it would be a nice, low-pressure position at a basketball-first school in an area where he has connections and present the opportunity for him to stamp his imprimatur as possibly a turn-around artist. Or not.
