Beat me to it.

Theismann is an idiot.

As bad as Brady Quinn i still find this ridiculous on theismann's part to this day... He's a dirtbag

Earlier this week, Joe Theismann, another former Fighting Irish QB, blasted Quinn in a radio interview, saying the 22-year-old looked "unprofessional" when he was on stage after being drafted. Theismann had a problem with Quinn's tie, his "just showered" hair and was bothered by him chewing gum.

Quinn took it all in stride, but acknowledged the comments stung.

"It's tough," he said. "I apologize to anyone, obviously, who is a Notre Dame alum, or for those fans who thought I wasn't being very business like. I was there for awhile, and at that moment in time, when you finally get picked after waiting for 4 1/2 hours, the last thought in my head was spit out your gum, fix your hair or make sure your shirt and everything looked good.

"I was just trying to get on stage as fast as possible and get that Browns jersey in my hand."

Quinn said Theismann's remarks were the only negatives ones he heard.

"I'm a big fan of his," Quinn said. "I guess he's not a big fan of me. He's one of those guys -- Joe Theismann, Joe Montana -- they've been right there along the way, people who have kind of come back and helped out our program. And he has been one of those big influences, so I have a lot of respect for him.

"I think him making those comments only kind of makes you look at yourself in the mirror and say 'Well, hey, maybe you need to look at those sorts of things.' And obviously, there in case is the haircut."

Florio is a tool which is useful only in the sense he is pretty good at gathering information in a timely manner.

As toilet paper is useful at wiping your ass clean, but little else.

His opinions generally are what the TP is used for however.

little known fact....PFT actually means Pulled From Turds.

Theismann is complete douche, he's an idiot. Cam doesn't think it's "all about him" because if it were, he wouldn't be crying his fuging eyes out after games, the reason why he gets so emotional after games is BECAUSE HE LET HIS TEAMMATES DOWN. He's not jamarcus who doesn't give a poo about football at all, he's fuging passionate about football and winning.

For the record, these statements about Newton aren't what make Theismann a dimwit. He long ago cemented his rep for being a moron.

As to the prime topic, I find myself wondering if the description of the GM hiring process as a "dog and pony show" might not have originated with Darin Gantt. He's expressed similar thoughts on previous occasions.

Maybe now, but not at first. He was pretty derisive of the first presser, calling him "Hurney2.0" and such.

As soon as they hired him gantt tweeted something about how personnel people and scouts alike usually work in cliques and dirty gossip about other scouts and personnel guys, he said no one ever had anything bad to say about gettleman

I don't think it is. In fact, I'd say our GM search went pretty well. Accorsi deserves a lot of credit.

Doesn't really matter though. Until we start winning on a consistent basis, doubt and scorn will be the norm.

Think of the Jets, Raiders and Browns as examples. It's not like every single move they make is blatantly stupid, but given their current rep, it's no shock if every move they make is questioned.

Sad to say that, at least for the moment, that's us too :(

I didn't take it as a slight on Gettleman, he made his State-of-the-Panthers Address in four words. Actually I find it a bit amusing. It will be hilarious when we start seeing the fruits of the organization's labor with Gettleman at the helm. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.

Ol' Jerry must have stepped on a lot of toes the past couple of years.
