I remember reading the Jaguars boards back in 2011 before our game against them. They had nicknamed him Blaine Swaggert and were convinced he was going to be Joe Montana. I lol'd then and I lol even harder now. Blaine Gabbert was a creation of the media who didn't even deserve to go in the first 5 rounds of the draft.
You are not telling a lie. It simply shows how powerful those in the media have become. They will selll some folks a bridge to no where.
