Putting “Mr. Irrelevant” on that jersey is a pretty dickish move. I agree–save the last pick for some fat drunk dude in the audience. He stands about as good a chance of making a team as pick #254.
Yeah, no. Undrafted Free Agents and 7th rounders make teams all the time. Fat Drunk Jets fans, not so much.
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.
Ryan Succop was ‘Mr. Irrelevant’, drafted in ’09 he’s still the Chiefs punter.
I was hoping for a DJ Hayden pic with “The Raiders? I wish that I died.”
I was wondering where I’d seen the drunk Joe Namath pose before…
A caption of Rex Ryan’s “HOW THE FUCK YOU DOIN’, BOYS?” in an Arkansas accent seems appropriate here.
#2 is the cold hard truth.
I can’t be the only one who wants Geno Smith to have an outstanding NFL career with the Jets just to see how much it would piss off Florio. Actually, it could have many other possible benefits.
1. We get one more reason to laugh at Sanchez
2. Tebow apologists are never heard from again
3. ‘Rex Ryan: Greatest Coach Ever’ series gets a new lease on life
4. Florio gets egg on his face
though a disadvantage would be that some truly awful Jets fans that I know would get to experience happiness. I’m conflicted.
Don’t be conflicted. Embrace it. Root for it.
Think of the furious Florio, annoyed Patriots fans, and Gregggggggg and PK losing their shit over the success of another gloryboy (read: black) player.
Yes, regularly defeating the Pats is worth the downside.
oh man, I hadn’t even considered the benefit of trolling Pats fans.
People are gonna give him shit for saying the Jets are going to the playoffs, but Sanchez did take them to the AFC Championship twice.
Think of the new chant! G-E-N-O, GENO, GENO, GENO!!!!
Jets fans are still too dumb to realize they just got an upgrade at QB and should embrace the fact that Nacho Libre is one step closer to backup-QB ville, located in none other than Wichita, KS.
What ever your feelings about Phil Simms; that is a damn good smirk.
“What ever your feelings about Phil Simms”
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.
I like Collinsworth. He talks trash and calls out crap. Like Joe Buck minus the “I’m so awesome even I want to blow me” attitude.
Yeah, it is a matter of taste, since the personality is what the input is; you are a football fan so they are not going to give you any extra insight.
My all time worst (most hated) for me was Todd Christensen.
The hover tags made my day.
Hanes are tagless.
Please, please tell me there will be a part 2 to this. There were so many amazing moments at this years draft.
There were amazing moments, unfortunately I wasn’t able to find pictures of all of them.
