This story is nothing short of astonishing. You may have heard earlier in the year about the terrible burden that Manti Te'o had to bear this season, playing even after both his grandmother Annette Santiago and his girlfriend Lennay Marie Kekua died in September. Well, Te'o's grandmother did die in September. But Deadspin has done extensive research and has found no evidence that there ever was any such person named Lennay Marie Kekua. There is no obituary, no report of an auto accident, no mention in the Stanford student newspaper where she was supposed to be a student.

Run and Shoot coaching disciple June Jones has coached his share of star receivers both at the college and professional level. I've found that his frame of reference about the position is pretty good. If he praises a player’s potential, that receiver is worth watching. So when Jones shared in a weekly press conference this season that SMU receiver Darius Johnson might be the best receiver he’s ever coached, and possibly the best athlete, that raises the old antennae.

Study football players long enough and it becomes clear that we all make assumptions about what they can and cannot do. Here's a play of Kenjon Barner's that may challenge assumptions about him if enough of them exist on tape.

The 2015 Saints were the worst defense we have ever measured, and Brandon Browner set a single-season record for penalties, so it's no surprise to see him at the bottom of the coverage tables.
