I was rewatching the Sanford - USC game to take another look at Andrew Luck, and they showed the "Sweepstakes" teams that are in the "Suck for Luck" sweepstakes.
Everybody has seen it, most have said it, and it's a catchy phrase for those teams who are struggling for whatever reason to get the consensus #1 player this year.
Well, here's where the boredom comes in. I was thinking about past NFL drafts and what the slogan, phrase or signs would have been for the top player. Here's some I came up with...
1970: Play like a Fairy, so we can get Terry (Terry Bradshaw)
1971: Flunkit, we're playing for Plunkett (Jim Plunkett)
1974: About to score? Fall... We want Too Tall (Ed Too Tall Jones)
1976: Stink like a Salmon, so we can get Selmon (Lee Roy Selmon)
1977: Play like hell for Ricky Bell
1984: Don't be a crier, at least we get Fryar (Irving Fryar)
1985: Our bowels are loose, cause we get Bruce (Bruce Smith)
1986: Slurp like a Ho, so we can get Bo (Bo Jackson)
1993: Who cares if we blew, we got Drew (Drew Bledsoe)
1997: With a frown on our face, we pick Orlando Pace
1998: Don't be Hatin', we got Peyton (Peyton Manning)
2001: Play like dick to get Michael Vick
2007: Don't even hustle, we want Russell (JaMarcus Russell)
Well, it cured some of my boredom. Hopefully a little of yours as well.
