Imaginary girlfriends are for gay guys.

Beyond that, he's just not "attractive" as a linebacker.

Re: Manti Te'o

If he can't tell a fake girlfriend after a few months, what makes anyone think his inability to recognize a play fake will improve?

You will when it affects the locker room...

Look, the kid's ability is evident but he's destined to be a back up or starter of a very weak LB corps.
I truly don't think our locker room is shakeable because of a guy's off the field problems. And let's be real, it's not like he's smoking dope and getting DUI's. The guy had a fake girlfriend.

If he knew about it, is that a character flaw? Sure. But the guy seems to be sincere and passionate about the game of football. That being said, I wouldn't take him before the 3rd round. I just wanted to see what everyone thought about him after the championship game/scandal. Case closed.

Didn't watch him except in the National Champ where he kept bouncing off of the Alabama RB's instead of tackling. Wasn't impressed from that (one) game. The whole fake girlfriend thing is a WTF.

Re: Manti Te'o

the fake gf thing is a overhyped garbage, let katey couric dwell on that...
as for his on field performance, he sucked out loud in that Alabama game. I wouldn't take him in the first round and the Saints don't need him. We need an elite pass rusher for the new defence.

Re: Manti Te'o

He's either really...really gullible or a liar

but with that aside regarding his ability...its all hype. Don't fall into the trap. Yes he was praised because they won all the games during the reg season but who did they really play? Won against Pitt by the grace of a blown call at the one yd line. Alabama blew these guys out of the water. Him & the rest of his D had no business on the field with any SEC team let alone Bama.

He's not what the media is portaying him to be. He'll be a decent LB at best IMO.
