Former Georgia quarterback and current NFL prospect Matthew Stafford is about a month away from the Brinks truck backing up to his front door. The only question remains, “From whom shall those riches flow?” Probably not San Francisco, as Niners coach Mike Singletary has already given Stafford his stamp of disapproval after noting that the quarterback responded negatively to questions about his parents’ divorce. It’s a round brown stamp, actually. From AJC, via Shutdown Corner:
Niners head coach Mike Singletary told KNBR (680 AM) in San Francisco this week that “if you’re going to look at drafting a guy in the first round, and you’re going to pay him millions of dollars, and asking him about a divorce about his parents, if that’s going to be an issue, uhhh, then you know what, maybe he doesn’t belong here.”
Stafford, a potential first-round draft pick, told the Detroit Free Press that the psychologist presumed Stafford had “unfinished business” about his parents’ split in high school.
My parents would get divorced if they weren’t so fat and ugly; who would take either one of them now? I wonder why Singletary would go out of his way to slap around a guy that his team doesn’t need anyway. Why would a defensive-minded coach need a seventh quarterback anyway? They already have a No. 1 pick in Alex Smith, who blows, yes, but what would a defensive-minded, run-first coach do with a decent quarterback, anyway? Besides make him stare at his brown stamp.
Stafford is working out with the Lions today, and if he doesn’t get therapy after that, he won’t be any good to anybody.
