Overheard on College Humor's weekly sports chat, Straight Cash, Homey:
Ethan: Who has the better NFL career: Russell or Quinn?Amir: That's an impossible question. I couldn't even tell you whos having a better career: Culpepper or Garcia, and they've had like 15 seasons between them. I'll guess for you though: Russell. He's bigger, faster, and stronger. I'm really curious to see a 6'6" 260 pound quarterback will do in the NFL. Can you imagine him and Brandon Jacobs on the same team?
I'm kinda just doing this to try out Clipmarks [Verdict: Useful, but inserted a huge amount of HTML crap into the clipping], but hey, those College Humor guys are funny. And I'm skeptical about Jamarcus Russell, anyway. Even though he seems like a great guy, and he has a good QB presence, I'm just not sure that a guy his size without proven traditional QB skills is such a good bet with the #1 pick. Why not Calvin Johnson? The guy is a surefire superstar. But a perfect storm has been created: Russell is in the draft and the Raiders' have the #1 pick. Al Davis is a gambler, and he loves anything unconventional. I suspect that he'll not be able to resist.Earlier in the chat, they equated Trent Green and Rich Gannon and, in all seriousness, I don't know how you can compare the two. They were both referred to as slow, which, umm, is just patently untrue for Gannon, who made his name with his wiliness and speed. The dude had about one-third the arm strength of Joe Montana and still won an MVP. Green is slow, of course, though not as slow as, say, Dirk Nowitzki.
