Sabby The Goat Wanted

June 30th, 2011

Joe knows that Sabby the Goat moved on to a new farm some time ago but whenever Joe hears about him, Joe just has to share, especially when it’s a funny anecdote.

A Jets fan chimed in to the “Opening Drive” this morning, co-hosted by Ross Tucker and Solomon Wilcots, heard exclusively on SiriusXM NFL Radio, and the fan claimed the Jets are soft at safety. He thought he had the answer to the Jets’ ills at safety: Sabby the Goat.

Wilcots and Tucker had a prolonged pregnant pause, apparently thinking they were being punked by Captain Janks when Wilcots finally responded, “(sigh), I’m going to be honest with you: Sabby Piscatelli is no Jim Leonhard.”

Then Tucker confessed, “Sabby got benched by the Bucs and then he got cut by the Bucs. What’s that tell you?”

And while Joe is on the subject of horrible sports radio calls, Joe yesterday heard a caller to “Movin’ the Chains,” co-hosted by Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan, claim he wanted his team (Joe didn’t catch it) to switch to a 34-defense from a 43-defense because when this caller would switch defenses on Madden to 34 from 43 he got more points.

The suggestion left Kirwan speechless.

    I said when we drafted Sabby he was soft. I told RastaMon that we should never draft any D player from Boca LOL!

    I disagree. He was not “soft”. He could hit when he was in position. His problems were 1. He had not a clue in the world how to take an angle and 2. He was not the brightest bulb

    Easy. Easy. Dave. Ok no game IQ and out of position. And yes he was sa sa sa soft. Soooooo glad hes gone.

  9. Chris FWC :) Says:

    And Dave, soft can mean many things. The Goat was a CB and was soft in coverage. But he was a pussy cat too.

  10. OAR Says:

    Well there’s, soft as a baby’s bottom! Or soft as a poodle! Or soft as silk! Hell, soft is opposite of hard!
    So yeah, there could be, soft as a goat!

    *edit safety. It don’t matter what position he played he was toast.

    Some of the callers on Sirius NFL Radio are priceless. My favorite are the ghetto people from Atlanta who call and can’t speak english and yell the entire call.

    I still think we would have beaten the Raven’s if not for him…

    Stupid Jets fan. Thats hilarious. J – E – umm – T – errr

    This made me laugh hahaha. I wish they would have tore into Sabby some more, but the point they made was sweet and got right to the.. point.

    I don’t think Sabby was soft, just stupid and uncoachable. He had all the physical skills in the world, but no mind to go with them. He took stupid angles that negated his speed, and was often out of position. Tampa gave him every chance to make it, and he didn’t. They were right to cut him. Funny, I don’t see him lighting up the NFL highlight reels ?

    Lol wish I could have seen Kirwan’s face after that Madden call. For those who didn’t get it Pat’s new book is a pretty cool read on the x’s and o’s of football.
