  • I don't understand how this guys isn't signed...

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/todd-blythe?id=2060

    A player with his kind of college career not making it to the NFL just seems wrong. Especially if you consider that he was the only good ISU offensive player during most of his college career. Not to mention the fact that he repeatedly burned a lot of defensive backs who were pretty high draft picks in the last couple of NFL drafts.

    PuppyPuncher:"It sure was nice enough of Roger Goodell to let the refs from Ark-Florida officiate the Vikings-Steelers game"
    NoNonsenseCoach:"As a Steelers fan living in Pittsburgh I can still admit that tripping penalty was a complete ghost call."
    Simonds:"The tripping call was awful, yes, but there were a number of other absurd calls that went against the Vikings, including a DEFENSIVE delay of game penalty against the Vikings only called after a failed attempt to convert a third and 2 by the Steelers. Even the commentators were utterly floored that the refs made that call."
    Wraith36444:"A shady tripping call on Minnesota essentially gave the game to the Steelers. The Vikings were the better team, but it is too hard to beat a decent team and the refs. Oh and Harvin is the man."
    MaineMan:"I have to agree that it was an awful call and that it changed the outcome. Overall a great game by the Vikes and tragic that the well-deserved victory was stolen away like that."
    PaddyPatriot:"I've seen this play and I have to agree, I can't believe they called it tripping"
    Johndoe:"You know the officiating is bad when a Steeler's fan, like myself, thinks it was pretty bad."
    Steelers_Pens_Fan:"I will admit that the whole "tripping" thing probably shouldn't have been a flag."
    ZN0rseman:"It's great to know that good old fashioned pro football game rigging is still alive and well in America."
    Klunker18:"I'm with Z on this one. Definitely one of those games that makes you wonder if the NFL wants certain teams to win."
    TRICKaz"I agree that was a BS call"
    InjuredReserve:"Have yet to hear anyone say it was the right call. Seems as if the Vikings were cheated a bit."
    Eagles4Life:"Coaches just need to be able to challenge penalties"
    EL_Guapo:"The tripping call was bad, the delay of game was stupid Either way, the Vikings showed they are a top team."
    EllijayFalconsFan:"The tripping penalty was rediculous."
    Archon095:"Even as a Steeler fan I agree that the call was bull."
    BroncosCon:"I'm sorry that was a total bull**** call and it changed the outcome of the game. Pittsburgh still won, but it was almost like Denver winning at Cincy."

    Tony Dungy:"The Vikings are just one bad tripping penalty away from being undefeated.
    Jon Gruden:"That was just a bad, bad call. It cost the Vikings an important win at Pittsburgh, and it could really hurt them in the post season."

    You are NUTS... watch video of every touchdown he caught, OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE. garbage. Very average speed and scared to death to go over the middle and cant play special teams. Not much place for him in the NFL. Maybe the Iowa Barnstormers in AFL2.
    Bears offseason wish list:

    Jay Cutler, I am good, for now.

      For the record, I HATE Iowa State, but I watched him beat my Hawkeyes almost single-handedly more than once. Not only is his abillity to run routes phenominal, but his hands are so good, it reminds me of Cris Carter. One time I watched him reach over Charles Godfrey and a catch crazy pass with one hand for a critical 3rd down conversion. That was just nuts.

        I also am a hawkeye, but I live in des moines so I go to ISU games to get my fix. You have to remember, godfrey wasnt anything special in college, his combine made his stock soar. Blythe did kill us, but all it was was fly patterns. He doesnt have the speed to do that in the NFL. If he was more willing to go across the middle or be a possession guy I could see a team taking him. he should get invited to a camp though.

          Heh... I'm a Des Moines based Hawkeye fan too.

          He made corners bite by feigning a route across the middle, which was what he usually did, and when they bit, they bit hard because, although his top-end speed wasn't elite, he was quick with his routes. He'd then turn upfield... and rely on his hands to get the job done. He was also notorious for his ability to box-out defensive backs and out-position them for the ball. He was crazy good at doing that. Those skills alone should get him signed somewhere IMO... top-end speed is overrated.

          (I'd take one Todd Blythe, over three of Troy Williamson anyday.)

            by 'box out' you mean 'push off' right? I didnt really see him try anything across the middle, but I was usually pretty tore up, so ill defer to you. He will get an invite to some camp, he has to. there arent a ton of legit 6'5" guys that can jump. Maybe some sort of red zone specialist. Would have helped his cause if he could play special teams though.
