ESPN finally aired its hyped special edition of Gruden Camp with Terrelle Pryor, the former Ohio State quarterback who’s entering the NFL supplemental draft. We have many reasons to believe Pryor will never be an NFL quarterback in any capacity, but we won’t attack that matter at this time. Instead, we’ll concentrate our focus on the awful show to which we were subjected.
We found the hour-long show between Gruden and Pryor to be a bigger waste of time than LeBron’s Decision. Not only did Jon Gruden repeatedly ask some of the dumbest questions, but he also was far too complimentary of Pryor. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk does a much better job delineating that point.
They had Pryor in there for a camp but didn’t ask about any Ohio State controversies. Terrelle Pryor was wearing a long-sleeve shirt to cover his controversial tattoos. He said all the right things but didn’t seem to truly mean any of them. He sported the most casual footwear you could imagine — deck shoes as if he were getting ready to board The Flying Wasp.
Honestly, our collective time would have much better spent had Pryor stepped up in the meeting and announced:
“It’s easy to grin when your ship comes in, and you’ve got the stock market beat. But the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile, when his shorts are too tight in the seat.”
The whole thing was a total fluff piece and Pryor’s footwear reflects the embarrassingly casual nature of the show. In the future, let’s stick to hardcore football and don’t be afraid to show us what you’re really like as a coach, Chucky. As for you, Terrelle, maybe some athletic footwear might be more appropriate next time.Google+
