What Would Buddy Do?
Shawn Andrews returns, shows mischievous side

oh i was only kidding about all thatI really had no idea that Shawn Andrews would become the breakout media star of training camp.

With a string of space cadet quotes (we might even suggest that they are Randall-esque!), Andrews has already established himself to be a go-to player for enterprising blathermonkeys looking for a goofy/ semi-controversial quote. Just weeks after declaring that his visit to a doctor in re: his ankle had been a real “tear-jerker,” today he declared himself to be in good health and insisted that his earlier, ahem, more emotional comments had been part of some sort of cunning ruse designed to deceive the assembled blathemonkeys:

Yesterday, Andrews was asked why he painted such a grim picture of his injury 21/2 weeks ago.

“I just wanted to get you guys riled up,” he said.

Uh-huh. Just all part of his master plan. Yup.

Maybe Andrews is embarrassed by what he said a few weeks back (I can’t imagine those quotes played well with the other players) and we should give the poor guy a break. I can believe that. But I also believe that the PR department needs to do a media training with Shawn and explain to him that he should try to sound slightly less crazy when reporters are around. Just talk about how you look forward to the challenge of playing the Packers and how much you respect everyone and everything. The end.

(Keep it up, Shawn. We can’t get enough.)
