Yeah, but only a handful of Mr. Irrelevants have actually had any significant playing time–odds are that you’ve got a better chance making the team as a UFA. If you’re going to do the asshole thing of putting that on a jersey, put it on a Jets fan.
Just by simply being drafted at all “Mr. Irrelevant” is proven to be a more desirable athlete than any UFA. I doubt “you have a better chance of making the team as an UFA” is actually backed up by any research or measurement.
If someone told me I was the 254th most coveted Possible Football Player in the world I’d be stoked…”irrelevant” would be a borderline insult.
He’s the worst broadcaster in all of sports. I’d rather listen to Matt Millen and Joe Morgan call a curling…game? match? whatever…than listen to Simms stammer, belch (literally), and miscall his way through a game. Two favorite Simms moments: he literally burped into the microphone last year, apologized as “I was clearing my throat,” and during I think this year’s AFC Championship he invents a name for a Baltimore linebacker, gets corrected by Nantz for the 45th time that quarter, and then says, “oh is that who it was? I wasn’t looking.”
I don’t have much of a problem with him, but I tend to tune (toon) the announcers out. My real hatred at this point is Chris Collinworth, but it is a matter of taste about who really is the tallest on Pygmy island.
