Two worst ideas I’ve heard today, if not EVER

25 02 2010

I have heard some pretty bad ideas in my day. I’ve had quite a few myself. But two things I heard today are threatening to make my all-time top 10 list of bad ideas.

First, Tim Tebow declares he is not throwing during the quarterback drills this weekend at the NFL Combine. I totally understand his thought process behind the decision, but choosing to skip the drills only proves he is not ready to be an NFL quarterback. And anyone thinking he has a chance to get drafted in the first round need to seek some professional help. He may prove he is a stud athlete in the other drills, but this puts a big red flag up to anyone thinking of drafting him as a quarterback.

Second, is all the speculation that Jimmy Clausen will (1) be drafted ahead of Sam Bradford and (2) possibly be a top 10 pick. OK, someone left the hype machine running all night and now we are all knee-deep in it. Clausen is overrated as it is. He only racked up the large amount of passing yards because Notre Dame didn’t have any sort of running game and were behind more than they were winning.  Anyone who takes two minutes to look past his passing yards and the fact that he played for Notre Dame (sorry, he is no Joe Montana or Joe Theisman) and actually watch film on this guy will tell you he is not a first round talent. Plus he is not even expected to audition for any NFL scouts prior to the draft due to his injury – not even at the Notre Dame pro day. Of course that could change, but if it doesn’t, what team in their right mind would waste a first round pick on this guy? Is a first round pick that expendable these days? And don’t even get me started on his overall qualifications as a Tier 1 quarterback, check this out and it will explain exactly why Clausen does not have the talent to be a first round quarterback selection. — Nuff said.

One parting shot … if the NFL has Tim Tebow on the NFL Draft invite list, it will be the worst mistake since Tiger Woods got married (awww, too soon?). There is no possible way he is one of the top 10 guys drafted and it would only prove how much the NFL wants to pimp him like … ok I’ll skip the Tiger Woods reference here. But to be honest, there is a part of me that wants to see him suffer worse than Aaron Rodgers sitting all alone at the table waiting for his name to get called.

Live Tiger/Tebow-Free on 2/22

31 01 2010

I think we’ve all just about had enough of Tiger Woods (The Pyrite Wonder) and Tim “Jeezus” Tebow. The gags and jokes are everywhere about the media overdose of both Tiger and Tebow. Even the sports commentators found themselves caught up in the “Tebow” death-spiral; laughing at themselves for constantly mentioning Tebow during games in which Tebow was not even playing. Big 12, Big 10 and even Pac 10 conference announcers would find ways to weave His Holyness into their broadcasts.

Well it’s time to say: enough is enough!

And since we can’t force the two of them onto a boat destined for a rendezvous with Somali pirates, let’s hope for the next-best thing: a Tiger/Tebow-Free Day. Think of it as a holiday free from having to hear about two of the biggest sports pains-in-the-ass.

To clarify, I have nothing personal against Tim Tebow – the person, but I would love to punch Tim Tebow – the persona, the myth, the legend, right in the mouth with a sledge hammer. And as for Tiger, well, he just proved that his “I’m better than you because I learned how to put in my mom’s womb” attitude was obviously an overcompensation for the fact that he is a dirty low-life. He can stay in hiding and I believe society will actually improve because he is gone.

Therefore, I declare Feb 22 (a.k.a 2/22, Two Twenty Two) National Tiger/Tebow-Free Day. And at 2:22pm EST, Feb 22, we will hold a moment of silence in order to emphasize our enjoyment of TTFD. It will be like a holiday for our souls, for our psyches.

Pass this on any way and every way you can. Post it on your Facebook, reTweet it, link on your web site, text it to your friends. Click here to RSVP for the event on the Mr Pressbox Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mr-Pressbox-Confessions/245650676385).

With enough support, we may even look to fine all sports commentators who violate TTFD to raise money for charity.

Live Tiger and Tebow Free on 2/22!!
