Catching Balls: The 5 Greatest Wide Receiver Hissy Fits

Catching Balls: The 5 Greatest Wide Receiver Hissy Fits


By now you've probably already seen Denver Bronco Brandon Marshall's patty-cake impression from last week. Not that we were surprised. Marshall's a wide receiver after all, and therefore predisposed to acting the fool, as you'll see with our collection of the 5 Greatest Wide Receiver Hissy Fits (with video evidence)...

5. LYNN SWANN (4:08)
• Upset by the Oakland Raiders' (literal) strong-arm tactics, the Steelers' complained of George Atkinson's "criminal" acts. Uh, dude, it's football.

4. ANQUAN BOLDIN
• One of the favorite WR hissy fit types is the my-team's-doing-fine-but-I'ma-be-a-bitch conniption, and here the Cardinals' Anquan Boldin gives a prime example, whining to his offensive coordinator during a key moment in the game that would send his team to the Super Bowl. Boldin reportedly didn't even stay around for his squad's victory celebration.

3. KELLEN WINSLOW JR.
• Although technically a tight end, Winslow is the son of a wide receiver, and thereby infected with the WR Hissy Fit malaise. Here he seems to suffer from a similar real world-football disconnect as Lynn Swann.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. CHAD OCHO CINCO
• Ocho Cinco's had more meltdowns than we care to remember, but his "4-1" fit was particularly memorable. By now Chad knows that as a Bengal, 4-1 is cause for a celebration, not tears.

•T.O. hissy fit? Um, which one?
