    Matt Jones's problem was that he had quarterback joints and not wide receiver joints. Anyone who's studied the joint issue in depth (such as myself) could see that.

    I have no idea, but Ed "Too Tall" Jones started out playing HS basketball and baseball.
    I think that he was about PY's height.

    I was going to make a joke about former UF BB players that had studied the "joint" issue in depth, but have decided not to do so. That belongs in a different thread.

    Bottom line is, if you ask most NFL football players, they don't really enjoy it. Football, at some point in your late teens, early 20s becomes a job. Football is work. Except for the very few elite skill position players football is a pain in the ass. On the other hand, most NBA caliber basketball players get to play a game until late in their 30s. Sure it is work but it is also a lot of fun. Much like baseball. The better you are at it, the less you have to work or the more the work seems like fun. Plus, the NBA and Major League baseball have guaranteed contracts. In the NFL you can get cut and never get paid again. Hell, even guys that can't make the NBA get to go travel the world and play basketball all while making more in 1year than most of will in ten years

    Am I the only one that was scared on every play that Patric ran?

    I think PY would make a better TE than DE because he is so much of a mismatch. He has wheels and can run and he would be at least 5 inches taller than anyone covering him. If he were a DE, while tall, he just doesn't carry the weight and has a higher center of gravity and could be blocked (chopped a lot too). Still that being said, I think he made the correct sport choice and I look forard to seeing him in the league next year

    Of course I hope never to see PY on the football field, but can you imagine the scoring threat he'd be as a tight end every time we got inside the 20? Just lob the ball up for grabs and see who can get off the ground the highest.
