For starters, enough about the Brady Brunch, at least for a few paragraphs.
Right now, RGIII is No. 2 in what was Michigan State’s second win over Baylor this year (see Bowl, Cotton). And what is it with these Michigan State quarterbacks? First Brian Hoyer, now Kirk Cousins are named starters.
Hello, Conner Cook is coming. And one mock draft has him already going to the Houston Texans in the 2016 draft, round one. How many Michigan State quarterbacks do they need to keep that team out of the playoffs again (see Hoyer, Brian, named this year’s starter over former Michigan QB Ryan Mallett).
How many teams is Hoyer is going screw up? Bill O’Brien’s a good coach, but not that good. Hoyer did so much for the Browns last year that it’s amazing Mike Pettine still has a job.
And if Kirk Cousins doesn’t come through, it’ll be amazing if Jay Gruden still has a job.
All these Michigan State quarterbacks are getting to be like North Carolina State, which had three starters in the NFL last year (Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson, Mike Glennon). OK, OK, I hear you – Glennon is a back-up and Wilson actually came out of Wisconsin. The recruitment of highly touted Glennon was the reason Wilson transferred there though.
There is one Michigan quarterback who will be starting though, and although he’s been reinstated, by a judge, we all know he’s guilty. Of what, we’re not sure, but he’s guilty of something. Just ask Gisele. Just ask Bridget.
Just ask the Colts. Just ask the Ravens.
Just ask T.J. Ward. The Broncos defensive back is surly about his own suspension in the wake of Brady’s being lifted, or, as he said, “My last name’s not Brady.”
Just ask Tyrod Taylor.
Who the heck is Tyrod Taylor?
That’s easy; he’s the next Mark Sanchez.
Speaking of Sanchez, he and Tim Tebow look like they might be teammates again. Well, maybe not. I guess that means Matt Barkley is going to work for the Pac-12 Network.
As long as he’s going into the media, maybe he can find out if Washington’s GM was canoodling and more with ESPN’s Redskins’ reporter.
I mean, the media wouldn’t send in sexy, female spies to seduce athletes and front-office personnel to get scoops, would they?
Read anything by Dan Jenkins to find out. You might be surprised. I mean, media outlets would never send hot, sexy intern babes to post-event parties to hook up with star athletes and spend the night getting “inside” info from them for exclusives, would they?
And maybe there’s some real football news out there, somewhere.
