Football Fortune Cookie Wisdom 2-25-2009

Detroit GM Martin Mayhew has decided that he’s going to start using psychological testing as a part of the player evaluation process. This is stupid for two reasons:

1. They’re playing football, not holding weekly trust building exercises. Maybe pick a defender who can actually tackle, and forget about whether or not he’s going to spend his bye week wearing a suit made of human flesh.

2. It seems unfair to use this testing to evaluate potential players for the Lions. After all, if someone told you that you’d be playing for them soon, you probably wouldn’t be too psychologically sound either.
