Recommended Posts

Anybody believe what he said?

not at all, there have been reports of him or his family saying the 2 met in person, now hes saying it never happened, and also there were accounts online using pictures of a girl not involved as his g/f, so ur telling me in the 3 years they have known each other and, lets just say they never met, he only talked on the phone and chatted with her online, no skpye which his huge these day or anything, im just not buying it, nothing is adding up

I was a Te'o "hater" draft wise, but I loved the kid as a person.

I saw this earlier. Didn't even think to post it here. Sorry ND fans.

Wait so they met at a game at Stanford, but they never met?

And he visited her in the hospital, but they never met?

 

He's lying either way.

Yep, he's lying. This is a cover up. No way somebody keeps up a hoax as somebody online for years. I still think my hypotheses is correct.

Didn't believe a single thing what Te'o said about him being involved in a hoax.. smh

 

Edit:

 

And this made me laugh out loud.

 

Seth Meyers@sethmeyers21

These Te'o jokes are all very funny but let's all try and remember that a person who never existed is dead.

I want to apologize to all of the dog lovers on this site.  I have kept this in sooo soooo long. (sniff sniff) :thinking: (sniff sniff)  :Mope:  :Cry: I felt the need to tell everyone after all of this time.....I have lied.  My avatar is really a chihuahua!!!  There I said it!!!!   :reaction:

 

Mante Te'o may not have  :Nuke:  his career in football, but has gone a long way in  :explode:  up his combine and draft interviews......to hold in all of this info as a fictional tale tells me the young man is sick.  Yes his stock drops...can you trust him?  Someone said "I guess he will be a Raider."  I would not doubt that.....or a Jet...the circus has been in town awhile......sad story.

manti's statement

"This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her. "To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating. "It further pains me that the grief I felt and the sympathies expressed to me at the time of my grandmother's death in September were in any way deepened by what I believed to be another significant loss in my life. "I am enormously grateful for the support of my family, friends and Notre Dame fans throughout this year. To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick. I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been. "In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was. "Fortunately, I have many wonderful things in my life, and I'm looking forward to putting this painful experience behind me as I focus on preparing for the NFL Draft."

 

I have no reason to believe he is lying. I've known people who have been tricked like that...

I didn't follow Manti or Notre Dame really, just cheered for them because they're an Indiana team, but there's a lot of evidence to support Deadspin here and Manti's/Notre Dames statements have too many holes for me to believe them at the moment, not saying that this could be blown out of proportion.

But if this is true, all I can say is I hope nobody drafts this guy, playing on peoples sympathy for publicity for a fake dead girlfriend, who got into a crash that almost killed her, then got cancer that killed her, is really despicable. His family doing it for a PR stunt also makes it worse, and shamed that this person was involved in a great sport that is football.

 

 

Also this just happened



NFC Scout on Manti Te'o: "We likely will just cross him off our big board altogether."

Great leader.....          this world is crumbling....

Ha... Hitler was a great leader too.  Being a great leader doesn't make you a great guy.

 

Odd side note: Hitler was Time's Man of the Year in 1938.

Seems hard for me to believe. Never met her in person, didn't bother to go to the funeral. Yet he was in a very involved relationship with her? I'm not buying it.

He's not a good linebacker, anyway. He got smoked when he had to go up against NFL caliber players. I wouldn't touch him with a 39-and-a-half foot pole.

Nice Grinch reference there.  :D

 

If true this will be bad enough for Teo  but imagine how much more of a scandal it would be if he had actually won the Heismann?   This could be a major blow to his draft stock.

Indeed. this is not good for for his draft prospects   However, the NFL has proven that talent does ultimately buy a ride on the NFL train.  Just which car (round?)

His father was even in on it, he is quoted as saying he met her....    and visited them in Hawaii on his breaks... Just a total cluster combobulation of lies....

 

Good Grief...

They have been since Dec 26, that is supposedly when Teo fessed up to ND.     It must have been damage control central ever since.    No wonder dude stunk it up in the NCG.    

 

His pr team will be busy for awhile

    • I really like your commitment to fixing the o-line. If we land Sitton, Norwell and Williams to put in with Kelly and AC, I would evaluate we have more than enough talent to protect Luck. Also like the assortment of offensive weapons you have added.   I get the feeling Williams wont drop to the second, there are few teams towards the end of the draft that could do with oline help. NE and Philly may not have their starting LT's for next year as an example.
    • (First of all, I'm using @Superman 's format, so thanks to him for it)    Team Cap Space: $74,194,402 (after Vinatieri Signing)   Own free agents:  Adam Vinatieri - already signed Rashaan Melvin - 3 years 24M (12 guaranteed) (9M first year this is what Ballard usually does - gets flexibility on the backend of the deal by giving up more guaranteed money at the front end) Jack Mewhort - 1 year 2M Jon Bostic - 1 year 1.5M Pierre Desir - 3 years 4M (2.5M guaranteed, 1.5M hit in the first year) - I'm taking a bit of a calculated risk here. He could be a good piece for our DB core and i'm tying him up by giving him some guaranteed money Barkevious Mingo 1 year, 2M Mike Person - 1 year 800K, he played well when he got a chance for us  Luke Rhodes 1 year 600K Erik Swoope 1 year 600K Chris Milton 1 year 600K Jeremy Vujnovich, 1 year 600K ------------------------------------------------- Total spent: 19.2M (for 2018), Cap Space Left: 55,194,402   Other Teams' Free agents: Andrew Norwell, OG - 5 years, 66M(44M guaranteed, 14M hit first year) all pro guard, I've decided enough is enough. when Luck comes back he will be protected Josh Sitton, OG - 3 years, 22M (12M guaranteed, 7M hit first year) pro bowl guard - see above, I'm fixing the guards position in FA.  Anthony Hitchens, ILB - 4 years, 26M (13M guaranteed, 6M hit first year) - Eberflus gets his Mike to help him in transitioning this defense into 43...  Tyler Eifert, TE - 1 year prove it deal 5M - he's a quality TE and would probably get more(both number and years) were it not for his injuries.in the last 2 seasons Paul Richardson, WR - 3 years, 20M (10M guaranteed, 6M hit in 2018) Corey Nelson, ILB  2 years 2M(1M guaranteed, 1M hit) - depth ILB piece.  (other depth signings at around minimum salary): 7M (I'm not good evaluating the more marginal talent so I would assume there are some OLine depth signing, some pass-rush depth signing, some safety depth signing, etc.) ------------------------------------------------- Total spent: 46M (for 2018), Cap Space Left: 9,194,402     Trades(before June): John Simon to KC Chiefs for their 4th round pick - IMO Simon is one of the players that's most likely to not fit in our new scheme. I'm projecting a trade here ------------------------------------------------- Savings - 3,281,250 Updated Caps Space left: 12,475.652       Draft: Trade: Jets call and offer their first round pick, second round pick and a fourth round pick for our no.3. Colts accept   1/6(from Jets) Bradley Chubb, EDGE, NC State, 4QBs and Barkley are gone.  start building some pressure on the defense 2/36 Leighton Vander Esch, ILB, Boise state, athletic do-it-all linebacker with speed 2/37(from Jets) Connor Williams, OT, Texas - hopefully teams are indeed not superhigh on him and he slips to the second round. Draft him and put him at RT to begin and then transition him to LT if we have a money crunch on our hands when AC's contract expires 3/67 Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia - a big physical RB, with good vision, who gets yards after contact. Great complement to Marlon Mack and ***** 4/103 Nathan Shepherd, DL, Fort Hays State - big interior disruptor. He's a 'potential' pick, but he killed the senior bowl and was unblockable in 1-on-1 drills vs some very good interior O-linemen  4/104(from Jets) Fred Warner, ILB, BYU - quick sideline to sideline ILB with some coverage skills. Needs to add some weight probably and work on getting rid of blockers 4/122(from Chiefs) Dante Pettis, WR, Washington - I have no idea why he's not ranked higher on draft boards, he has consistently been available around here in simulated mock drafts I've done, I love his speed and the way he attacks the ball in the air. He also has some value in the return game. Has 9 punts returned for TD in his Washington career 5/140 Dominick Sanders, S, Georgia - a well rounded safety good in coverage. Had good year and showed more consistency than in previous years.   6/178 Kylie Fitts, EDGE, Utah - often injured, Fitts didn't have the production his early career suggested(7 sacks junior season). He is a quick and slippery pass-rusher. This is a traits pick with the hope that with health he will develop into a rotational pass-rusher 7/221 Michael Joseph, CB, Dubuque - intriguing small school prospect who held his own at the Senior Bowl. Good developmental prospect.  -------------------------------------------------------------------- 12M spent on draft picks. Cap Space Left: ~0.5M   Depth Chart(bolded are the draft picks, underlined are the FA acquisitions)   I tried addressing the full roster with heavy emphasis on O-line help. I feel like i would feel very comfortable putting Luck behind this O-line. The DB core is very thin but I just couldn't do everything this off-season. LB core needs more work too.    Thoughts?   
    • Very nice win coming out of the break. We are now tied for the 4th Spot with the Wizards at 34-25. I see no way we miss the playoffs looking at the Heat who are 30-29 and in 8th, Pistons are 9th at 28-30. I mean we would really have to go into a funk to miss the Playoffs now. I could see us finishing 7th though because of our schedule. 7th would get us either the Celtics or Raptors in Round 1.
    •   Statistically, the success of play action isn't very closely related to the strength of a team's rushing offense.   Take the 2016 Vikings. Adrian Peterson missed most of the season, McKinnon (3rd rounder) and Matt Asiata (UDFA) split carries. They averaged about 3.2 yards/carry. They used play action on 19% of their pass plays, and they averaged 3.2 yards more per pass play when using play action, which was the biggest differential in the league.   The 2016 Steelers only averaged 1.4 yards more per play action pass, and they have one of the best RBs in the league. The 2016 Cowboys only averaged 1.8 yards more per play action pass.   http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2017/2016-play-action-offense
