Morning-walkthrough: March 29, 2012

Super Bowl L is just around the corner and the Cowboys plan on making a bid. The fact the 2010 event in North Texas was accompanied by all the charm, hospitality and shrewd planning of a yard sale apparently leaves Dallas undaunted.

One more time . . . the rule change to the 12-men-on-the-field penalty enacted on Wednesday would not have changed anything in the Super Bowl. If a player is trying to leave the field - as Justin Tuck was for the Giants during the Patriots final drive - the play is allowed to go on and will not be whistled dead.

Donovan McNabb is going after Mike Shanahan by pointing out the won-loss shortcomings of quarterbacks under Shanny. McNabb says RG3 won't fit either. McNabb was 5-8 under Shanahan in Washington and threw 14 touchdowns and 15 picks.

With the Super Bowl heading to New Orleans, Roger Goodell's in a sticky situation with that city given he's performed a vivisection on the team.

The old Raperoo went round-and-round with Jim Harbaugh about Randy Moss.

Pete Carroll, Mark Sanchez' coach at USC, says Sanchez is in a tough spot with Tim Tebow in town.

Draymond Green tells Paul Pierce he doesn't get a farewell tour; Pierce says Warrior blew a 3-1 lead

Draymond Green tells Paul Pierce he doesn't get a farewell tour; Pierce says Warrior blew a 3-1 lead

Draymond Green isn’t exactly known as being the most respectful competitor, so perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he spent the early minutes of last night’s game against the Clippers telling Paul Pierce he isn’t a legend. 

Pierce, who will retire at the end of the season, was not in the game at the time, but Green called to him from the court, telling him nobody would give him a farewell tour. 

“Chasing that farewell tour. They don’t love you like that,” Green said. “You can’t get that farewell tour. They don’t love you like that.” 

Green then said something else that was tough to hear through the broadcast before adding, “You thought you was Kobe?”

After the game, Pierce responded on Twitter, going to the easiest and most obvious insult available. As Chris Rock once said, “If I’m driving, and someone crashes into me with one leg, I’m gonna talk about the leg.”
