I know you've missed him. Little known fact about this picture: He's looking and pointing at me because I inspired his fourth quarter comeback. All right fine, I wasn't at this game, but I'm sure he was thinking of me at the very moment this picture was taken.
I'm sure you are wondering why I'm bringing Trent up? Well I don't need a reason, BUT I mentioned Trent because
he's incredibly hot this week is the NFL Combine. I know that right now you are rolling your eyes at me and saying, "Bethany, I didn't need you to tell me that the Combine is this week. I've been glued to the coverage on the NFL Network all day."
Oh you didn't say that? I'm guessing what you really said was more like, "What the heck is a Combine?" or "Seriously, Bethany, more football crap."
Well just to clear it up, a combine (per the almighty wiki) is:
a machine that harvests grain crops. It combined into a single operation what previously had taken three separate operations (reaping, binding, and threshing).
Yeah, that's the wrong kind of combine, Wiki. What are you trying to do to me?
The NFL Combine is sort of like a job audition for college players. They participate in a battery of physical activities, written tests and interviews with NFL teams. You can only attend (as a player) if you've been invited. They poke them. They prod them. They make them spell their names to prove they are capable of signing autographs. And then, they weigh them. In public. Oh the horror. It's like a giant weight watchers meeting.
A really hot weight watchers meeting.
In spite of my great appreciation for all things Trent Edwards, he did not play very well last year. As a result of this my beloved Buffalo Bills are talking about picking up another QB. Not that Trent will be totally out of it, but he'll get some competition. I thought that as a service to Trent we should scout his competition for him. There are like ten QBs coming out of college that are vying for a job in the NFL. I just can't be bothered to scout them all so we are going to look at three have been mentioned as having the potential to be spending some time in the quarterback's rooms with Trent.
There are several things that you want to look for when acquiring a new QB. First, can he throw a ball, run fast, jump high, blah, blah, blah? Of course he can he's in contention for a job in the NFL. Second, and this is key, is he pretty? Let's take a look and see if any of these boys can out-hot Trent.
First up, Jevan Snead. I know what you are thinking. No, I did not purposefully choose the ugliest picture I could find. This is honestly one of his better. I'm not sure I couldn't handle watching him in a press conference every week. Maybe I could just close my eyes and think about the Super Bowl.
Nope, it's not working.
Jimmy Clausen. *facepalm*
There is a God! This is Tim Tebow. You might recognize him from the above topless picture or the Super Bowl add in which he tackles his mother. Now I think if we can look past his cruetly to his mother and the fact that he is clearly wearing a child's t-shirt in this picture, I think I could live with this choice. Of course if he shows up to the NFL Draft in April with a goatee I might have to personally hunt him down and punch him in the face.
Thank you for participating in this exercise. Now that I have looked each guy over I feel ready to write a strongly worded text message to the new head coach of the Buffalo Bills letting him know that even though I could live with Tebow, based on hotness Trent should be the starter in 2010.
