It’s about dinner time on Tuesday. I’m watching “NFL Live.” Trey Wingo, Mark Schlereth and Marcellus Wiley are chatting it up about my favorite quarterback Kyle Orton. Orton, the formerly bearded Bear, suffered an “open dislocation” of his index finger against his former team Sunday night.
The ESPN studio trio were discussing the impact the injury would have on Orton’s throwing – you know because it’s been so dynamic pre-injury.
As Wiley gave his take, he showed just what a dislocated index finger, NFL Style, looks like.
Ugh. I delayed dinner a good half hour after peeping at Wiley’s mangled digit.
But it left me wondering. Which is worse? Wiley’s bent lady-pleaser or Brian Baldinger’s infamous outward pinky?
Baldinger’s right pinky brings a greater understanding of why Ronnie Lott had his cut off.
We’ll let the photo evidence be the judge.
