This is how a QB is supposed to look after throwing a ton of INTs and getting his a ss kicked on national TV.

It looks more lile a grimace to me too. Plus, the guy he's talking to doesn't look too jovial either.

Another hatchet job by some turd with a column to write.

Reminds of the hacks that write about Nascar, making stories where nothing exists. How do idiots like these get paid?

It's more that DA just handled the question horrible.

Dude says he doesn't like to be embarrassed on MNF but shows up @ the presser wearing a pink striped polo? wtf?

I'm with Jim Rome on this one. thats fine thats fine thats fine thats fine thats fine thats fine thats fine thats fine thats fine thats fine... what an idiot.

Yep - the question wasn't going to be asked if the people didn't want it answered

Lutui answered it with no issues, Whisenhunt answered it with no issues ..... DA could of answered it and taken a situation what looked bad and had a lot of people upset with him and complete diffused it .... but instead came off as a dope

Somers asked a legit question in a legit manner and was trying to get a legit response ... at no time did he question his dedication or anything else DA was ranting about

At the end of a bad loss during a 6 game losing streak and a loss that effectively kills your season where the same issues that they write about week to week there isn't a lot left to say

the fans know the lines are bad, they know DRC can't tackle, they know the team takes dumb penalties, they know the RBs fumble too much, they know DA is a bad QB and the QB situation was handled poorly

DA needs to realize he is following an MVP QB who was loved in the community and his signing was the excuse to cut a high profile QB who was a 1st round pick from a major program that many in the teams fanbase thought got a raw deal

He needs to realize the fans may have a little extra venom

He needs to be smart enough to know these guys aren't out to get him - they are just asking questions that the fans were screaming

At that point it's - we know all that is wrong, why the crap is he laughing about it?

Instead of providing context, he has cemented his image as a dope

The video is kind of funny though.

He wasn't assuming anything .... he was asking what the context was because many fans were upset and that it could be perceived poorly

If he knew the context he would of asked the question to confirm it

Instead he gave anderson a platform to say exactly what was going on because it was a hot topic at that moment amongst the fans

Same question went to two other guys and they were able to handle it easily

Mr. douche reporter should have asked him about where the WMD are being kept as it has about as much relevance as a the non-laughter that DA exhibited.

And for all of those who think he is laughing hysterically on the sideline, I have to wonder what video YOU are watching.

This is such a ridiculous non-issue, being blown up by a bunch of media blow-hards. Such is the world we live in.

I think the question caught him off guard.
