Anthony Fasano is having himself a helluva week. First, he blows shit up on Sunday with a 107 yard, 1 touchdown performance against the Titans. And now, he just got awarded an extension with a $2.1 million signing bonus. The deal will pay Fasano $7.75 million over a three-year period.
We've started to warm up to Fasano, because the dude has had a knack for showing up big when we really need a third down bailout. He's also shown to have hands of iron from time to time, but we can forgive that if he brings us more days like he did last Sunday.
Some of you have clamored for a nickname for Fasano. But round these parts, you have to either be consistently good or consistently shitty to earn one (Thigpen is the rare exception). Interestingly enough, Fasano's been neither.
But we do like to associate him with the "Go git yer fockin shinebox" line from Goodfellas whenever we write about him. Because he's a paisan. And, as everyone knows, everyone of Italian descent is connected to the mob. Also, everyone of Italian descent makes pasta sauce for dinner every night and kisses their fingers while saying, "That's-ah spicy meat-ah-ball! Shattappa yo face!"
