Don’t blame LeFevour, or the teams that passed on him.
Blame his agent Jerry Maguire.
Here is the story you don’t know. The real version you didn’t see in that famous movie.
Sports agent Jerry Maguire “flips out” and leaves his agency with Central Michigan QB Dan LeFevour as his only client.
Sequestered in a hotel room with his family, LeFevour gets a phone call from the best sports agent in the country, Bob Sugar.
Asked to leave Maguire and hire Sugar, a very tempted LeFevour hangs up the phone and decides he will stick it out with the flaky, couch jumping Maguire
Just look at Maguire’s advice to LeFevour leading up to the draft.
HIS ADVICE AT THE COMBINE.
Combine workouts are for 6th round draft picks and Canadians. Trust me, nobody will hold it against you if you sit on the bench while the other QBs are throwing. If any of those GMs give you any lip, just rabbit punch them in the ribs and tell them ‘I’M WITH JERRY MAGUIRE.”
AT HIS PRO DAY
Remember, accuracy is for European dudes hitting tennis balls. You’re American aren’t you? You get out there and show them the high heat. I wanna see fast balls, fast balls and fast balls. Don’t worry about mechanics either, just fire that thing like a patriot missile and the rest will take care of itself. If this doesn’t get you taken in the first round than my name isn’t Jerry Maguire.
ON HOW TO GET ON TODD MCSHAY’S GOOD SIDE
You might be asking, why are we wearing stockings over our faces and holding baseball bats in front of draft analyst Todd McShay’s mailbox. I won’t lie to you. He has been dissing you pretty hard. A guy like that won’t respect you until you show him you are a person to be taken seriously. Now smash his mailbox. That’s it. Smash it real good like. Now leave a note saying “you have been warned” and sign your name. If this doesn’t get him to say good things about you on draft day, nothing will.
AT THE TACO BELL DRIVE IN
Look, I haven’t drawn a pay check in four weeks so I am going to need you to “SHOW ME THE MONEY” and pay for these two fresco burritos.
