This story is a little sad. Michael Munoz, the son of Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz, went undrafted during the weekend and says he's giving up football. When I first heard of Michael Munoz, I was excited about him. He sounded like the kind of great talent that his father was. So I watched him when he played at Tennessee, and, well, he just wasn't all that good. Not a bad player, a good, solid blocker, but nowhere near what I had been led to believe from some of the newspaper and magazine articles I had read about him. He's had a lot of injuries, and he's going to do other things with his life. Good for him.
Eight weeks ago, the Vikings were undefeated and ranked No. 1 in DVOA. Now they're 6-6 and probably done. What went wrong?
