Stupid Is As Stupid Does In Detroit
What can you say about the Detroit Lions? They have a QB who thinks God’s going to help him win 10 games a season. Still waiting on that. A GM who makes Dan Duquette look like a genius and a running back who makes Harry and Lloyd look like Mensa candidates. Excuse me, Flo. What’s the soup du jour?
Matt Millen signed former Bengals running back Rudi Johnson after releasing the next Defensive Player of the Year. Tatum Bell didn’t take too kindly to that and that’s when things got weird.
From Pro Football Talk:
…As we’re told by a reliable source … Johnson left his bags outside CEO Matt Millen’s office while he met with team officials and, ultimately, worked out a deal with the team.
So when Johnson came back to get his bags, they were nowhere to be found. Johnson and Millen were stumped.
The team checked the videotapes generated by the team’s in-house surveillance system, and they quickly identified the culprit.
So who might it have been? None other than Tatum Bell, who lost his gig with the Lions after Rudi arrived.
PFT explains that Bell took the bags to a female acquaintance’s house. When confronted (presumably by Millen wearing a bobby hat), he claimed he thought the bags belong to someone he knew. The acquaintance said she hadn’t seen Bell for a couple months and he just showed up at her door asking her to hold on to the bags “for a while”.
We disagree with Florio. We think Najeh Davenport would have had the appropriate response. There ain’t no half-steppin’ when it comes to our godfather. He would have opened those bags and let loose like a Gatling gun. Stupid’s contagious at Ford Field. It’s only a matter of time until Rudi’s infected.
