    “Sonofbum”…funny.

    Plummer & McNabb are bitter towards Shanahan.

    Season ticket holders since 1932, his parents have to be a hundred at a minimum….so that’s a lie.

    Vikings bringing in Luck and Griffin. That’s funny.

    Shanahan is the most overrated coach in the league.

    Wade went with @sonofbum over his father’s suggestion of @bumofason.

    On Twitter, Wade calls Alabama S Mark Barron the best safety prospect in the draft.

    He also promises to provide insight into the draft process.

    He might be an interesting follow.

    Yep. All Shanahan could do with Jake Plummer is get to the AFC Championship game. Seriously, Shanahan was able to coach Plummer to a championship game. Plummer. Did I mention it was Jake Plummer?
