I know Chris is working on an analysis-based post on last nights Hall of Fame game, but let’s be honest — we can all agree on the star of the game.
Oh, they are gorgeous. I realize I’m falling into the NFL’s vicious marketing trap, but I have a pretty good idea where I’m going to blow my next C-note, and it sure as hell won’t be on my tuition bill. It’s the responsible thing to do…
But whose name should go on the back? That’s where I need your help.
I don’t have a very good history with these sorts of things. In fact, a quick look at my closet would reveal the following names: Drew Bledsoe, Takeo Spikes, and Brian Campbell (twice). That’s a lot of wasted dough.
With that in mind, we can rule out a bunch of names.
-My biggest mistake is usually a lack of foresight, so contract length will definitely factor into my ultimate decision, basically ruling out T.0. Plus, his show makes me hate him. Moving on…
-I’m not about to take a flier on a rookie, so that rules out Maybin, Wood, Levitre, etc.
-I’m all about second chances and whatnot, but I’m not about to place a convict’s name on my back. Sorry Marshawn (and possibly Donte, depending on litigation).
So who does that leave us with? The obvious answer is Trent Edwards, but that would be too easy and I would be like every other schmuck at the Ralph, so originality has to be considered as well. That being said, I’m still willing to consider him.
Others I need to take into account: Lee Evans, Aaron Schobel, Marcus Stroud, Leodis McKelvin, and Terrance McGee.
Is there anybody I’m missing? Any other factors I should be considering? Who should I pick? Help!
