I just saw this articleabout a black WR back in the 1980's that ran close to a 4.8/40at the Combine and was shocked when his draft stock plummeted because of it...In the article he seems to call out the Steelers coaching staff for keeping a tall "deep-threat project" named Weegie Thompson over him. My guess is he believes he was a victim of racisim, but is reluctant to say it openly. http://thehullabaloo.com/2011/01/28/finding-zeno What's my point? I don't really remember Weegie, so I looked up his stats. Man, they are surprisingly good, considering he must have rarely played. Only 79 career catches, but 11 TD's and over 17 YPC. If anyone got screwed, it wasn't the slow-poke that couldn't make evencarve outa decent CFL career, it was Weegie, who could've had a prolific NFL career. http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/T/ThomWe00.htm Looks like Weegie was a awesome blocker: Hall of Fame safety Ronnie Lott gushes when he talks about Thompson. In Thompson's rookie season, 1984, the Steelers were the only team to beat the 49ers. One reason they did was by assigning Thompson to block Lott on every play. "He blocked my butt all day -- and fair," Lott remembered. "Every play, he came after me. And I respect the hell out of Weegie Thompson to this day. He's one of the toughest guys I ever played against."
