    Anyone who saw the fascinating Jon Gruden special with Clausen, Tebow, McCoy, and Bradford, knows why Clausen is dropping. He does not come across well at all. He doesn't seem to have the passion for the game or the leadership qualities of the other 3.

    Call me suspicious: I actually think BB and McDaniels were in cahoots a little on this and BB basically got the skinny on Tebow for McDaniels so "Tebow to Denver" wouldn't have been the wall-to-wall story of the last few months. And someone wouldn't swoop in and got Tebow before Denver. I'm just wondering what the quid pro quo will be. I hope it's just not a 3rd.

    FTR, I've given Tebow a lot of negative ink the past few months. But I'm glad he ended up in Denver in the 1st. Although I disagree with him on almost everything off the field he seems like a genuinely better person than Clausen.

    Well yeah. ESPN showed him on his iphone, then he says a few words to his family and Bronocs hats start getting passed round. Goodall makes the pick a minute later.


    Unless what you mean is how did he have the Broncos hats there. I'm pretty sure ESPN bring 32 different sets of hats, just like there's 32 different jerseys for each pick who attends the draft.

    You realize that a lot of players do this right? They have the hats for all the teams ready to go.

    Re: King : Tebow told him he thought he was going to New England.

    Huh.

    My reaction was totally different.

    I thought Clausen was much more a student of the game than the other 3. McCoy I thought looked particularly bad, Bradford looked quiet and ineffectual and Tebow looked like the Beaver.

    And, then I considered that sitting down with Gruden proved nothing.

    Nope,the guys at ESPN were even asking how did Tebow get those hats early

    If ESPN did that,I would assume the analysts would know that

    Re: King : Tebow told him he thought he was going to New England.

    How about it being his agent doing it...price for 32 different sets of hats is a drop in the bucket for what he will be making off of him in his contract.

    sounds like a waste of money. to buy 32 X 6 = 192 hats just in case you get drafted.

    I think Josh told him they were going to be doing some trade downs and were going to take him late in round one...probably a week before the draft

    I do think the Broncos shipped him those hats secretly so no media guy had word of it and it was all an act on Tebow's part

    If by "student of the game", you mean "he attempts to shirk responsibility and demonstrates a willingness to throw his teammates under the bus at the slightest suggestion that he made a mistake", then we're in complete agreement.

    No, I think they had a bunch of different hats, and pulled out the Bronco ones after the pick. You could see him looking at it to make sure he got the right one.

    While on the subject of Tebow - Did anyone see that retard Skip Brainless..I mean Bayless say the if Tim Tebow were QB of the Rams this year that the Rams would have more wins than they would with Bradford?

    The other analysts on the ESPN set all chuckled and disagreed

    Bayless is the most retarded sports reporter in ESPN history...and thats saying a lot

    The agents get the hats. I don't know if they get all 32 or if they just get some for the teams they think the player could go to. Obviously, the Saints and Colts weren't taking him. Thye generally get a feel for who might be taking their client leading up to the draft. It's also possible they made a promise that if he was at such and such a pick they'd jump in and nab him. This happens more than you would think, but especially in the NBA Draft.

    I'm sure the NFL or Reebok gives them out for free. After all, I'm sure even if ESPN or the NFL had to be those hats it wasn't going to break their bank accounts to get the "perfect shot".
