Mike Leach doesn’t appreciate the NFL. Like, at all.

Texas Tech Football

Before the draft last week, Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini said he would be passing up on Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree, citing his attitude as the main problem. Truthfully, Mangini called Crabtree a “diva” and Texas Tech’s awesome head coach Mike Leach took offense to that. Here’s what he said:

“[Crabtree] has been more successful as a receiver than that guy has a coach at this point,” Leach said to the Sacramento Bee. “Part of the reason is he’s (Crabtree) too shy to be like that…Let’s see how all those non-divas do up in Cleveland this year.”

Doesn’t seem like Leach likes Mangini all that much. Now Leach is going after the teams that didn’t draft his spread offense star quarterback, Graham Harrell (that means everyone). Harrell eventually got picked up by Mangini’s Browns (no pun, but they are a lot like pinching loaves).

“The truth of the matter is that the NFL drafts quarterbacks notoriously bad,” Leach told the paper. “That’s indisputable. …

“I don’t have an answer for why they don’t have a skill for drafting a quarterback. Well, I think the priorities are out of order. Accurate and makes good decisions needs to be a priority, not something they need to teach him, because they don’t do that very well.”

I’m going to take Leach’s side not just because he’s the most badass coach in college football, but because he’s damn right. You want to know why spread offense QBs never play in the NFL? Because they never get the chance. It’s not hard to name 10-15 shitty quarterbacks playing in the NFL but all of the franchises they play for still think it’s somehow going to work. Someone start a petition or something (hell if I’m gonna do it).
