Default Ryan Leaf fails physical, still unemployed

Get a load of this. Ryan Leaf is pathetic, one of the biggest flops in sports history. What do you guys think should happen to him? Does he deserve another chance? If he can't make third-string on one of the NFL's worst teams, I don't know if he can anywhere...

Jackson is right. He is a loser. If he gets another chance, someone decided to be generous. What happened to Leaf? Wasn't he supposed to be good or something?

Am I missing something???.... You guys are calling him a LOSER because he has an INJURY and as a result, a team doesn't want to sign him??.... That's what I got out of the news story.


"Ryan Leaf never saw the welcome the Dallas Cowboys had planned for him. He failed a physical because of a wrist problem and remains one of the NFL's many unemployed veteran quarterbacks.

"'It was an injury that concerned us enough that we couldn't make a decision to put him on the roster,' Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones said."

Lee, he's a loser because he had too many chances in San Diego, put in no work effort and thought that would make him a great QB.

I think the turn of events makes the Colts decision to choose Manning even better. I know they were unsure until nearly draft day which player to pick.

The Colts never had a doubt as to who they were going to take in the draft. Manning had more skills than Leaf, and more maturity. Leaf was simply a victim of teams needing quarterbacks, and the fact that he was to immature to realize he wasnt ready for the NFL.

Leaf failed to make the Cowboys roster due to an injury that he has had since he was in SanDiego, it had nothing to do with his talent. This guy could still start and do well in the NFL once he is healthy, and if he could get his head straight.

How can you place these two ideas together? The only person Leaf vicimized was HIMSELF.
As far as "doing well in the NFL" goes, he's ALREADY been given numerous chances to do that.
I have to disagree with you on all counts...

Let's avoid digging up threads from four years ago.
