Former Red Land High School and Georgia Tech standout Mike Cox is one player from the NFL family waiting to see when this is going to end. The Kansas City Chiefs bruising fullback took time out from his offseason schedule to talk about the current situation of America’s most favorite sport.
Mendenhall told fans they lack knowledge, and that they don’t understand the inner workings of the NFL. He later dissected his comments on Twitter by giving a short lesson on the word parallel and what that means. He then signed off by saying he could break it down further, but that would take an amount of ideology and big words that a lot of fans wouldn’t understand.
As for who was responsible for the disappointing and underperforming ’09 Draft class, that falls to one person and one person only – Scott Pioli. I’ve written this before, but I’ll repeat myself. Had Pioli come into the building and listened to the personnel people who were already on site, he would have never drafted Jackson, Magee, Washington, Colin Brown or Quinten Lawrence. That group had only Jackson as worthy of a draft choice, and not as a first round choice.
Patrick Allen is VP of Content for the FanSided Network. He also serves the managing editor of the network's very first site, Arrowhead Addict. Originally from Ohio, Patrick is a Chiefs fan first and a Browns fan second (I know!). He also pulls for the Buckeyes, Indians and Cavs. Guinness is thinking of naming him the most miserable sports fan of all time. @rpatrickallen
