It was shameful when an NFL team asked tight end Nick Kasa at the Scouting Combine if he liked girls.
It was moronic when Jeff Ireland once asked Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute.
But they’ve now been topped, by the mother of all ridiculous combine questions.
According to Dane Brugler of CBSSports.com, one team asked a prospect if he found his mother attractive.
First off, gross.
Second of all, it’s hard to imagine what the right answer to this question would be.
Third, what in the name of Oedipus Rex Ryan (who’s always been more of a foot man) could possibly be gleaned from this kind of information, once harvested?
During their interviews with players, teams want to put players in uncomfortable spots to see how they think on their feet, to gauge reactions rather than canned answers prepared weeks or months in advance. But sometimes, in their effort to be clever, teams cross the line.
And whichever team did this one, crossed the line in a major way.
