Taj Boyd’s challenge to Teddy Bridgewater

Too funny, Taj Boyd, formerly of Clemson, and now doing the NFL combine said “ I thought we were here to compete” when Teddy Bridgewater declined to participate in most of the drills.

Hmm, why should the most polished quarterback in the draft and a likely top ten pick “compete” with a likely career backup? I don’t get it. Oh, yes I do: Boyd thinks by showcasing his athletic ability, he might climb up in the draft. Either you can play or not play, and Bridgewater can play.

Perhaps Boyd should have thought that before his Tigers got drilled by 37 by Florida State. That’s a better evaluation point than a set of drills.

Of interest, wide receivers in the draft. Over the last five years, of 15 players, only one receiver running a sub-4.40 had a 1,000 yard season (Mike Wallace). In fact, only three of those sub-4.40 WR’s even had 1,000 career receiving yards. Measurables can lie … Or tell the truth in a different way.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
