John Clayton is a Skinny Little Idiot!

(as opposed to a big fat idiot) In yet another example of why "The Professor"  must have gotten his degree at Stupid University, in his recent "1st & 10" column, he makes this statement:

You could see in Vick's first preseason appearance as an Eagle that his presence, specifically in the Wildcat formation, affected McNabb's rhythm.

Memo to the ponytailed one: I was a freaking PRESEASON game!

 

In Clayton's defense, he's just parroting the same nonsense spewed from the lips of other Mothership geniuses like Mark "I can't spell my own name" Schlereth, and Tim "my wife thought she was marrying Matt" Hasselbach. To take a handful of plays, in a preseason game, and use that as a basis for a whole season is not only stupid, but stoopid as well.

It was obvious to anyone who has not suffered from multiple head traumas (Schlereth & Hasselbach) or 40 years of "alleged" high grade Northwest cannabis exposure (Clayton) that the whole mindset in getting Vick some PT was to get his feet wet and to put some ugly thoughts into the minds of opposing team's defensive coordinators. Between you and me, I think D-Mac's mild irritation with regard to rhythm was just a ploy to deflect attention away from his friend Vick (Mission Accomplished!)

Come December, we'll see if The Professor was right, but it's my guess that by then he'll be on to other wild hypotheses, like "why the Eagles total domination of the regular season will hurt them in the playoffs". It must be nice to have a job where you're paid to make forecasts that makes a weatherman's accuracy look like Nostradamus!
