You’ve Got Mail: Organized Team Answers

“I’m not certain why there is this desperation to pay Kyler. ‘Super talented headcase’ is a tale as old as time in the NFL. It’s arguably a top-three reason why any player goes bust.

Stop pretending like there isn’t a problem when there is. It’s hard to put a finger on it, but Kyler has this disconnect.”

Wait, wait, wait. You are putting Kyler in the same bust category as Leaf and Jamarcus Russell? As Washington, who battled the drug policy (when Kyler has never broken one rule or gotten in any trouble whatsoever)? Those might be the worst comparisons I have ever heard about any player.
