apparently he's a big-time loser:

Shauna Moffitt said Thursday that her husband left her with their two children, ages 5 and 3, on Nov. 11 the day after the Bulls won at Syracuse -- and has had limited contact with them since. Throughout his time at USF, his scholarship checks have helped pay for the rent or mortgage, but since leaving, Moffitt has not done anything to support his family financially, she said.

"He is living a lie," she said. "Hes lying to everyone. Hes not helping (us) with anything." Their marriage of five years has deteriorated to the point that Shauna, 26, made public Thursday a larger allegation, saying that she had taken multiple online courses for her husband and written papers for his college classes to keep him eligible to play football.

"I have written every single paper he has ever written in five years at USF," said Shauna, who works as a data specialist in the Sumter County Appraiser's Office.

As long as he can play football, I could care less. It's a sad story no question about that but that's between him and the courts and we know that the courts will force him to pay his child support. This is about assembling the best NFL team that the Houston Texans can do. If Moffitt fits Kubiak's scheme, then I'm all for taking him.

But you don't want turds on your football team....a big part about assembling good teams is gathering high-character guys.

We have plenty of those and have endured it for six seasons now. I'm ready for some hard nosed football. Show me the path to Albert Haynesworth and I'll be giddy!

We want a hard nosed guy on the field. We don't need someone who is likely going to make Reggie Bush's trouble with the NCAA seem like nothing.

I don't get it. He took the kids, and she still wants money?

Also, NitroHonda, I thought you were pretty anti-bad guy?

I was but after seeing Haynesworth and Florence get away with stuff... I'm now on the other side. NO MORE NICE GUY!

I don't want the guy. Sure, I'd love to have a guy who's tough-nosed and has a mean streak on the field. But if the guy's an a$$hole off the field like his wife is proclaiming, no way.

He's a regular Travis Henry but she sounds like the jilted wife to me. I wonder why he would have hurt his reputation? She must have been a real peach. Now she comes out with the paper writing scandal. Atleast she did her part to help pay the rent. She must write one heck of a paper.

Heres hoping we draft him in the 5th rd.
