At Least One NFL Team Is Scared Of Andy Dalton's Ginger-vitis

I've seen reasons to be concerned about all of the quarterbacks available in this year's NFL draft, but this one falls firmly under the heading of re-damn-diculous. Apparently one of the NFL's 32 teams is worried about TCU quarterback Andy Dalton because. . .he has red hair.

At least one team is thinking not just about Dalton's brains but also about what's on top of them. "Has there ever been a red-headed quarterback in the NFL who's really done well?" a coach asked one reporter last week. "It sounds idiotic, but is there any way that could be a factor? We've wondered."

Well, whatever coach that is is half right. . .it certainly does sound idiotic.

Please, dear God, don't let that be Leslie Frazier (although I would have my doubts about that).

Dalton is one of my preferred choices for the Vikings in this year's draft, but it's sounding more and more every day like there's no chance that he's going to be available when the Vikings pick in the second round. If the Vikings liked him enough to take him at #12 overall, I don't think I'd lose my mind or anything, but it would come as quite a surprise.

But, at least one NFL team feels that Eric Cartman was on to something.
