Great story. We're lucky to have a GM like Smith.

That was awesome. I always knew Rick was a good guy, you can just tell by listening to him talk and the way he carries himself. Things like this really make me proud to be a fan of such a classy organization.

First off, you see, we are already set at QB with David Carr who, as you know, was the number one pick overall for our team. While Donovan is certainly a good quarterback, he's contractually bound to the Eagles organization, you see. We could be implicated on tampering charges, you see. And, uh, there's that little issue of Donovan desiring a large contract, which, uh, is tied up at the moment in David Carr."

Interviewer: But David is not even on our team anymore, Mr. Casserly.

"You're not listening, you see, it's a very very complicated system of biometrics and cap negotiation. This is like swimming with sharks and you're wearing raw meat underwear, you see. Being a GM is not as easy as you might think, buddy boy. You wanna' swim with the sharks? These aren't nurse sharks, kiddo. These are hammerheads, great whites, and other types of malcontents."

Interviewer: Mr. Casserly, Rick Smith is talking about the kid's report card.

"I am not sure what sort of report card Mr. Smith is talking about and why Rick is telling Donovan to keep his grades up. I seem to recall Donovan grading out fairly well on my Casserly No-Miss Scouting Report Card system that I patented myself when I was 37 and still living in my parent's basement. Oh, I know why you think I wouldn't be interested in Donovan. Yes, it's perfectly clear now. It's because he's of African descent. correct? Well, you see, I am no racist. You can mark this down: Charley Casserly is not a racist."

Interviewer: I don't even know what to say.

"Good. Now you see the whole picture. It's not a pretty sight, is it? Try being a GM in today's NFL. It's like riding shotgun with Lindsey Lohan. Or Morgan Freeman. Or Ted Kennedy. It's not easy, kid."

You forgot 'this isn't the way it works in the NFL.'

I think McNair's blood still boils over that snarky little comment...
