Says Mike Florio in a piece for The Sporting News.
Do we hit all the "Combine is for dummies" bulletpoints?
- Mention of guys in underwear? CHECK
- Jerry Rice having bad measurables? CHECK (although the actual measurables would have been nice)
- Mike Mamula? CHECK (check-minus for comparing Vernon Gholston to him, though; Mamula had 13.5 sacks through his first two years; Gholston doesn't even have 13 tackles)
- Mentions of heart and desire not being measured at Combine? CHECK
He gets bonus points for tying the article into the Winter Olympics somehow, but loses points for not mentioning "bubble" anywhere throughout the article. Overall, about a B as far as "Articles about the Combine from people who are representing that they have no idea what the Combine is for" go.

Extending the football season for the worst teams as well as the best, for no reason other than money? Your Scramble team marvels that the NFL hasn't yet stolen bowl season away from the NCAA.
