I honestly don't feel any NFL team will pass on a man that can contribute to their pass-rush and make plays on defense. Maybe it's me being naive, but the bottom line of NFL teams is to win NFL games regardless of the sexual orientation of any of their players.



If a hunter-orange transsexual man with brown polka dots and 2 husbands can help win NFL football games, I highly doubt a team would pass on this NFL-caliber football player.

Precisely my point... They would not pass on a talent that would make them a better team because of his sexuality, but an overwhelming majority would pass on a A&M QB loaded with drama and questionable character.

Hunter-orange tranny gets the jersey over Chad Ocho-Cinco by at least 2/3 of the league.

Now how it's framed by the public is an entirely different discussion.

And I think now it's pretty clear why an overwhelming majority passed on that A&M QB drafted by Cleveland as he couldn't beat out Hoyer through training camp and the preseason. Also, I certainly appears now that Manziel was a product of that offensive system down at A&M. And here's my algebraic theorem to prove that:

A&M Offense + Johnny Manziel = 1989 U. of Houston offense + Andre Ware
A&M Offense + Kenny Hill = 1990 U. of Houston offense + David Klingler

The current A&M offense has become the equivalent of the U. of Houston's offense in the late 80's/early 90's. This should keep our fan base sourly against wanting to pick up Johnny Whatever later down the road and for wanting to draft Kenny Hill when that inevitable question pops in a year or 2. Wow...complete tangent...not erasing it; can't erase that true brilliance of mine

And I am so glad we "came out" amicably on our Sam discussion. If he keeps working hard to get better, he can definitely be a solid option on someone's defensive line in a year. If we weren't so deep a defensive line, I wouldn't might at all giving him a shot here to give us quality d-line depth.

Iva different take on Manziel. He isn't a product of a system as much as their system was a product of his God given ability to be dynamic and a fraction of a second faster than those going after him. Much like Jamarcus Russell, Johnny Manziel is not a product of work ethic, leadership, or staying after practice and get it right. Johnny lost his speed advantage and never worked on being well rounded.

He has time but it's fading fast.

Bingo. Never correlated Johnny Whatever & J-bust in that manner, but that was on-point. I was going with historical precedence of over-inflated system college QB's, already dooming poor Hill's NFL career with the Ware/Klingler/Manziel comparison.

And with that...

500! Took 7 years...reckon I do type that slow, plus I have a slow, bad brain.

Here's to another 500 posts of idiocy and incoherent droolings.

Re: Rams cut the gay guy

I nailed that one. Dallas' defense is appallingly terrible, and Sam can be a play maker on that D-line some time in the future once he figures out the defensive scheme there. Their scheme seems to be give up a bunch of yards and a bunch of points per game, but I reckon they're sticking with what they know.

Hope Sam the best.

And to those of you wishing to hear nothing from this dude ever again because he got cut in STL are in for more angst if he gets on that Dallas PS. If you've been exposed to ESPN or NFL Network within the past decade, you know how much they love, love, love covering them some Cowboys or all things NFC East/AFC East.
