No more Mamula meme?


For years the time leading up to the NFL Draft was Mike Mamula's (and this BC blogger's) Groundhog Day. Like the swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano, each April as the Draft approached, hack writers would use Mamula as an example of what not to do during the Draft. The narrative/meme was that Mamula was a workout warrior that the Eagles took too high and an NFL bust. What the articles always failed to restate was that Mamula was a great college player -- not just a combine freak and that he had a decent NFL career.


Now the NFL Draft is a week away and other than some SEO garbage from Bleacher Report and a disguised press release, there is no mention of Mamula anywhere. This is progress. Now if we can just stop reading about "gambling scandals."

I thought that Mike Mamula was a great player for Tom Coughlin. He dominated Kansas St in a bowl game when K St was very good. He left school early and was "swamped" in the NFL. He made a lot of money. For some reason, he was targeted in the NFL. At first glance, there were racial aspects involved.
