    I hate to think what people would think of him now if that was a nationally televised prime time game like Te'o's.

    Admittedly, Te'o had a worse game than Jones did, but why does Jones get a pass and Te'o slides off peoples draft boards?

    I can see it now...Te'o gets drafted by a perennial defensive powerhouse like Chicago or Pittsburgh and we get to see him on the cover of Madden in a few years while we grab a hybrid DE/OLB and finish 4-12.
    I didnt watch the game, but I looked up his stats to see if he did any thing positive to explain the difference. He had 2 sacks which sounds like a very good game rushing the passer.

    I would think the explanation is very simple, Jones still did some positive things. Te'o did not. If Te'o would have stood out in a particular area, whether it was in coverage, tackling, etc. I am sure the scrutiny would have been much less.

    Playing well in a particular area and playing poorly in another area is much different than being dominated completely.

    Now, I did not watch the game, but this seems to be the logical answer.

    Hes an idiot whether he was part of the hoax or if he actually thought he had a girlfriend. Why did he do this? He wanted the heisman... was it worth it? Sure it probably took 5 minutes to come of with this crap.

    What a twisted *******. I never liked the guy. He has those walleyes that you can never quite look him directly in the eye. He looked mentally challenged to me at first glace and this would indicate he is.

    I still can't believe that an average LB has a thread thats extends 14 pages and he's not even on the Lions.

    Let em drop to the 4th. Then take em in the 4th. I'd want my linebacker to have a bit of crazy in em.

    I'm glad this happened......

    Maybe now all of the people who have been on Teo's nut sac tryin to get DET to draft him will think twice. Hopefully this thread dies down finally

    As crazy of a story as everything is...this story really has absolutely nothing to do with the kid's abilities and play.

    Just sounds like a couple kids sitting on a laptop manipulating the sports media world as a joke, and it got out of hand.

    Maybe he can make the refs believe we scored TDs on 3 & outs

    I really don't think he's that average and I don't see how someone messing with his mind messed up a guys draft stock.. Alabama made a lot of good pro prospects looks bad this year. They are the best team in the nation. Their oline are all top 3 round picks. I just don't see how one game can make ppl think this way
