What happens when you have a good NFL pro day? Football experts start calling you names — famous ones.
After former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Sam Bradford‘s impressive workout on Monday, critics across the nation let the compliments fly as deep and powerful as the QB’s spirals themselves.
Bradford’s workout impressed former Cowboys executive Gil Brandt so much that he compared the young slinger to a Hall of Famer.
“He put on the best quarterback workout by a draft prospect that I’ve seen since I watched a private workout Troy Aikman put on for us with the Cowboys in California,” Brandt told USA Today.
The next Aikman? That’s a stretch. The next Manning? Maybe Eli.
According to Washington Post Redskins insider Jason Reid, the Skins, who own the No. 4 overall pick, are extremely high on Bradford and might be willing to work a deal with the Rams for the top selection in April’s draft. The top pick of the NFL draft hasn’t been dealt since 2004 when the Giants, who also owned the No. 4 pick that year, made a deal with the Chargers for Eli Manning, the No. 1 overall pick.

“It’s all in the head. When you’re struggling a little bit, you just have to stay loose. Hopefully. I’ll get the first one [soon] like I [have done] all of my career. It’ll bounce in soon. You just have to find a way and stay positive.”

Did these “fans” take the Fake T, grab a Fake beer and some Fake Wings at the Fake bar before heading in to the Fake Garden?
“Not one of those goals were Thomas’ fault – shame on the ‘fans’ at the Fake Garden last night”
