Hali shifted blame for the handling of the Sandusky case to Penn State’s former athletic director, Tim Curley, and the university’s president at the time, Graham Spanier.
Paterno’s career ended in disgrace because of his failure to report Sandusky, who was convicted for sexually assaulting minors in Penn State’s football facility. He was fired after 46 years as the Nittany Lions head coach, and the university even removed its statue of Paterno that stood outside of Beaver Stadium. Spanier and Curley were both convicted and sentenced to jail time for not alerting law enforcement to the situation.
Then Hali circled back around to the Chiefs, who start back at training camp Thursday:
Let’s look at the Super Bowl champs I am sure they had 100% attendance for OTAS AND OFFFSEASON WORKOUT this year. I maybe wrong.
The numbers for Brees support his belief that he hasn’t slowed down at all. He led the NFL with 5,208 passing yards in 2016 — only the ninth 5,000-yard season in NFL history, five of which were done by Brees.
It’s anyone’s guess if ages 38 and 39 will be as nice to Brees as they were to Brady, but as long as his play doesn’t drop off, he could overtake Manning on the career leaderboards.
In 11 seasons with the Saints, Brees’ worst totals were 4,388 passing yards in 2009 and 26 touchdown passes in 2006. In both seasons, he earned a spot in the Pro Bowl.
The average season for Brees in his 11 years in New Orleans is a preposterous 4,888 yards, 35 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. But reaching Manning in 2016 in either yards or touchdowns wasn’t realistic.
Manning sits at 71,940 yards with 539 touchdowns. Brees has 66,111 yards and 465 touchdowns.
