Well NFL fans, it's half way through the 2011-12 season and there have been a number of great story lines, though there haven't been many thus far for the Arizona Cardinals. Sports Illustrated's Peter King recently compiled his midseason all-pro team, which unfortunately was sans-Cardinals, though linebacker Joey Porter was recognized for his one of his special talents on the field, talking smack to his opponents.
As part of Sports Illustrated's NFL mid-season review issue, players were asked a number of poll questions concerning their fellow players in the league. Players were asked who was the funniest trash-talker in the NFL, and Joey Porter made the list with a veritable who's who of smack talkers:
Who has the funniest trash talk on the field?
- Chad Ochocinco, Patriots WR.....28%
- Ray Lewis, Ravens LB.....11%
- Bart Scott, Jets LB.....6%
- Joey Porter, Cardinals LB.....5%
- Shaun Smith, Titans DT.....2%
