Greg Paulus Will Outshine Tebow, Beat Up Clausen ... Or So He (Jokingly) Says

I don't think anyone sees a decade-long career in the NFL for Greg Paulus, so I tend to take the media tour he's on during draft workouts as more of an audition for a broadcast career than a playing one. Perfect example: his stop with The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday. ↵

↵There was a lot of fluff early in the interview, and some talk about divided loyalties between Duke and Syracuse in hoops. (He eventually gave in and seemed to say he wanted to see a Duke-'Cuse title game with the Blue Devils winning.) But the draft talk was far more fun, particularly when they got to comparing Paulus to this year's big-name QBs. ↵

↵
↵⇥Patrick: Who will be a better pro quarterback, you or Tim Tebow? ↵⇥

↵⇥Paulus: [Laughs] I've got to take myself. I believe in myself and you could throw me ... I think I'd take myself against a lot of guys. ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Patrick: Would you take yourself over Jimmy Clausen? ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Paulus: [Laughs] I like myself. ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Patrick: Are you better than Bradford? ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Paulus: I've got to keep getting some experience and then I can start talking a little football. ↵⇥

↵
↵

↵But if Paulus, even jokingly, taking the name of Tebow in vain didn't rile up one fan base, how about a potential fight between Paulus and Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen? ↵

↵
↵⇥Patrick: Could you beat up Jimmy Clausen? ↵⇥

↵⇥Paulus: [Laughs] Is this a fight? Is this a backyard fight? ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Patrick: Yeah, if it was a fight to start. ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Paulus: I would cheat and find a way to win. ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Patrick: What about Tebow? ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Paulus: Uh, you know, Tebow is a big guy. ↵⇥

↵
↵

↵Then he slipped in some sort of dig about Tebow also finding a way to cheat and win. I'm just saying that if we could set up some sort of fight card that involved any combination of Tebow/Paulus/Clausen, it would be one of the biggest PPVs of all time. ↵
