    This gives me hope. I just need to train for a few weeks, and I'll be in the NFL.

    The nfl requires the least skill of the three major sports.

    Debatable. I love baseball...but there are millionaires that do nothing but be left handed and throw to one hitter every few days.

    Not to get into the larger debate, but I'd argue that throwing strikes to a hitter is far more difficult having a ball thrown to you and kicking it as far as you can without too much regard to accuracy, and then getting out of the way. Or, even better, backup punters have the perfect life.

    I never said anything about the requirement to throw strikes.

    Brandon Lyon makes $5 million per year. He has no discernible talent.

    Anyone can play tight end apparently. In fact, by 2020 the first step to becoming an NFL tight end will be not playing football in college.

    Guy gets a Private Equity job without a degree and transferred to the Palm Beach office, then gets a pro ball contract without a college career. I sure hope he doesn't smash the top of his helmet into the top of another player's helmet at full speed during pre-season.
