"Teaching" his critics

I couldn't be happier for Kris Durham. I don't give a crap what Todd McShay says, Durham will be the steal of the draft and the Seahawks are playing the role of caper.

Then he opened eyes as a senior by becoming a playmaker last season while A.J. Green sat out due to a four-game NCAA suspension.
He was still not among the more than 300 prospects invited to the NFL combine in February, but scouts noticed when he ran a 4.43 40-yard dash at Georgia’s pro day in March.
There was buzz about him. During a three-week stretch, he took pre-draft visits to what his agent said were 14 different teams.
His stock had risen. Maybe as high as the fifth-round some draft analysts projected.
Seattle didn’t wait that long, grabbing the 6-foot-5, 216-pound Durham with the 10th pick of the fourth round Saturday as the 12th receiver taken.
“I was speechless when it happened,” Durham said from his home in Calhoun less than an hour after talking to Seahawks’ brass including coach Pete Carroll. “Right now I’m still kind of shaken a little bit. I’m just really happy to get out there and get to work.”
 A year ago Durham was preparing for his future as a teacher. No he's preparing to teach his critics a thing or two about clutch, dependable receiving.

GATA Kris!

We were so busy we didn't get to watch any of the draft yesterday. What did McShay say ab Kris??

I watched about three minutes. As soon as I turned it on McShay was saying there were better receivers available for the Seahawks than Durham. I turned it off immediately, but I'm pretty sure none of those receivers were able to fill the shoes of the #4 pick so well while AJ was suspended.

Just a hunch though. Dumbass.
