(PhatzRadio / USA Today) — INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III each passed one of the most important NFL scouting combine personality tests that can help elevate or hurt a top prospect’s draft stock by acing their media press conferences.
Stanford’s Luck and Baylor’s Griffin impressed with their smarts and grounded maturity. But give Griffin the edge for captivating the Lucas Oil Stadium media room with his wit and easy sense of humor when he cracked wise about his lack of prototypical height: “I’m 6-2 and 3/8 and 223 (pounds) — I wouldn’t lie about my weight.”
When asked if he thought the Browns, who pick fourth overall in the draft, loved him, the Heisman Trophy-winning Griffin said, “Well, I hope somebody falls in love with me other than my fiancee. As a player that’s what you want, I’m looking for somebody to fall in love with me.”

In four seasons as the head coach in Cleveland, Romeo Crennel had six different players start at quarterback, so it should come as no surprise how he responded when asked what he learned from his experience with the Browns.
"Try to avoid quarterback controversies, for one," he said Saturday while addressing the media at the NFL...
Kansas City Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said Saturday his team would consider signing Peyton Manning -- if the four-time league MVP becomes a free agent.
I must say the Sunday edition of the Combine had more drama, entertainment value and original creativity than the 84th edition of the Oscars...you might even argue that the Combine had better photography, let alone story-lines...Andrew Luck had a better day at the office than did Brad Pitt and "Money Ball"... and Luck will probably end up grossing more than the movie over...
Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli refused to say
Friday whether team has interest in Peyton Manning, though he did say discussions have taken place with free-agent quarterback Kyle
Orton to provide competition for Matt Cassel.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter doesn’t think Seattle is a potential destination for Peyton Manning this offseason, as the All-Star quarterback weighs his options beyond the Indianapolis Colts. In fact, the Seahawks are too “desperate” to have a real shot at Manning, according to Schefter. That’s what Schefter says in a video (embedded below) Wednesday about Manning’s possible moves...
A member of a New England-based sports team recently complained about the poor condition of the city of Buffalo. No, it wasn't Tom Brady. This time the Buffalo bashing was done by Brad Marchand, who joked that it was not his favorite city to visit. With Buffalo getting its share of negative press, it's only fair to wonder if Buffalo truly is the worst place for road teams...
Tom Martinez could not have picked a greater legacy holder for his professional career than Tom Brady.
Martinez passed away Tuesday night, on his birthday, but he’ll always be remembered as the guy who could fix Brady when the star QB needed tweaking.
Throughout the years, Martinez’s name would surface and float around like fireflies lighting up a football conversation...
