    Kids make mistakes. Hopefully he has learned from his.

    If he falls to us, it would be worth a look to take him.

    +1. It certainly didn't change what he brought to the football field.

    Besides, we did sign a QB who claimed football was his girlfriend.

    Draft Manti ... trade Percy for Revis ... and then our defense in is damn fine shape!

    Then sign Greg Jennings (no percy I admit, but at least lessens the blow) and Brian Hartline to help out the receiving corps ... and we have a really solid offseason. Use the other draft spots for BPA and at least one receiver in the second or third round.

    I am firmly on the do not give up Percy for anything bandwagon ... but this would be something worth considering if it could make our defense dominant with a talent like Matni slipping as far as our draft spot.

    According to Marrdro he's washed up...

    The fact he disappeared against Alabama along with pretending to have a dead girlfriend to make the world feel sorry for him and be interested in him and increase his Heisman chances and endorsement opportunities (unless you buy his lame story) are just a couple reasons I hope he doesn't wind up on the Vikings.

    Didn't he have this GF long before he was even considered a Heisman trophy candidate?

    If you're going to claim that his production level wasn't there in 1 game out of his entire collegiate career as a basis not to draft him, then I guess you feel we should opt out of all our draft picks, since every college player has had at least 1 bad game.

    I can't say I want him on the team, but I think he's a hell of a linebacker. He really stood out to me against Oklahoma and Michigan.

    I'd be more interested in him if he was the one who planned the whole fake girlfriend story. I don't want a player stupid enough to be fooled by someone doing a fake girl voice over the phone. If he planned it he'd be an asshole, but at least he wouldn't be a stupid one.

    And to say he didn't show up against Alabama is like saying roadkill didn't put up a fight against he truck that hit them.

    I don't know when she first came into existence but the fake death sure happened at the best time for him.

    I don't watch enough college football to rate Manti Teo. But I do know Alabama was Notre Dame's toughest opponent by far and that was the most important game and that's the game where he was a non-factor. Probably not a good sign. I'll leave that up to the others.

    I fully admit what I think he was trying to do with the girlfriend hoax really makes me not be able to stand him regardless.
