    Well again, the constant complaint was his arm and he's not going to change that.

    Sam is not Tebow. He's Anna Kournikova.

    If Sam's NFL prospects aren't that good, he'll probably find a way to profit off being gay if he hasn't already. I can't blame him for taking advantage of the media frenzy surrounding his sexuality. And I think the whole thing is ridiculous, but if gayness is marketable for him, it is what it is.

    Since this thread has taken such a ridiculous turn I'm trying to find a why to tie Manti Te'o into it.

    I am of the opinion that Sam won't make the roster due to his lack of athleticism and versatility. That being said, I think you are being pretty fast and loose with your definition of a "bust". Glenn Dorsey is in no way, shape, or form, a bust. Did he live up to the hype? No, but a "bust" wouldn't be in the NFL for 6 years and starting on one of the best defenses in the NFL. He isn't a pro bowler but he is a solid player. I'd also say it is a little early to call Jarvis Jones and Morris Claiborn busts. Now you can say that you are just posting articles but they are just opinions like anyone else. Both players may turn in to busts but we shall see.

    I respectfully disagree bak,

    Dorsey starts because of injury. He was signed as a back up.
    ...and a 51 million dollar 5th overall pick that never makes a pro-bowl and gets just 6 sacks in 6 years is a bust.

    Sam likely stole Manti's thunder. Manti should have cashed in when he had the chance.

    Yeah, it reminds me of the heady days of all those atheists who mocked Tebow every chance they got for displaying his religious beliefs, then mask it by saying he has no business being in the NFL. Sam has yet to receive 1,000,000,000,000th the vitriol Tebow received by the "tolerant" Left...

    People don't want to swallow this horrible prospect. It wasn't that long ago that we had a great quarterback who led us to our 2d National Title, holding most of Florida's career passing records along the way, yet wasn't even drafted. No one cried "Racism!" The NFL is a different game, a game that requires higher physical standards.

    If you don't have the tools, you don't have the tools. Chris Leak was no less great at Florida because he was 5'11" with a rather weak arm.

    Looking at the draft, there were six defensive ends from the SEC who were drafted ahead of Sam, including the overall #1 pick. Is ANYONE going to say that Sam is as good as Clowney, or even his former teammate, Kony Ealy? I have no trouble with Sam, but if he gets cut, he gets cut. Unfortunately, with the social climate in the nation today, I could see the Rams keeping him on the roster to avoid a media storm that would await them if they cut him for not cutting the mustard.

    It's really the exact same thing. I'm glad you recognize that. And as for the amount of vitriol, just give it some time.

    Dorsey plays nose tackle in SF. Not exactly a position where sacks are abundant. He is great against the run though and ranked 5th amongst DT in stops against the run.

    ...But a number 5 pick has to be a star. 51 million bucks.

    If you hide your willy from him you will have a phobia. If you show it to him you will be a sexual harrasment charge in waiting...

    Are you in the habit of "showing" or "hiding" your penis to/from other men?

    How bout just take a shower and try not to think about penises so much.

    I don't buy the philosophy that you are either a star or a bust. There is plenty of in between. Teams are not build up of 24 star players and a bunch of reserves. You will have stars and you will have squad players which are absolutely essential. Did he live up to his first contract? No. So perhaps he was a "bust" for the KC Chiefs but they also drafted him and then played him out of position which is pretty stupid. For the 49ers he makes 3 million a year which seems a bit low and he probably will make more in his next contract.

    I am not forced by employment to show anything to anyone. My thoughts are about one penis, my own and the rights I have to keep anyone else from forcing their issue on me.

    My first post was also about one penis, my own. I shower with the wife and she is free to look anytime she wants per my choice.
