I saw a great quote on ESPN (shocker!) this week about the Manti Teo hoax, and his draft stock falling. The article was about how far Teo will fall in the aftermath of this whole bizarre saga. One commentor said:

"Other players have killed people, raped women, been busted for drugs and committed various other felonies. But for some sports fans, having a fake girlfriend is where they draw the line."

It's a little depressing how true this is.

Yeah... but even if people call out the players that were involved in murders, his fans will just tell you we shouldn't bring it up any more. *cough ray lewis cough*

A lot of those were pretty good, but I was kind of disappointed with the Steelers version.

Already hearing speculation about PEDs after the combine this last week, particularly the 40 times.

Not that I'm surprised but it bums me out.

I read and article on ESPN about him restructuring that said his skill at the no huddle was unsurpassed.

Uh... Have they heard of Peyton Manning? NO ONE is better at the No Huddle. NO ONE

Typical east coast bias from ESPN, nothing new.

Isn't the Patriots offense built around the no huddle and quick play calling?
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.
