It looked like this day would provide no time for your favorite J-Named Co-Editor of Sass™ to pry himself of his ever-increasing duties at the office (none of which, sadly, involve the strip club across the street) to drop some AFL nuggets onto the Internets, but this warranted tacking on an extra half-hour in the cubicle tonight.
For the powerhouse known as the Grand Rapids Rampage (3-7).
“McPherson joins the Rampage after spending the first nine games of the season with the Austin Wranglers. The 6-3, 185-pound Florida State University product spent two seasons (2001-02) with the Seminoles before joining the AFL and the Indiana Firebirds in 2004. That year, McPherson won the AFL Rookie of the Year award, throwing for 2,965 yards and 56 touchdowns while rushing for 259 yards and 19 scores in just 14 games.
…’McPherson’s a player with tremendous athletic ability who was highly sought after throughout the league during the offseason,” said Sparky McEwen, Rampage head coach and director of football operations. “Above all else, he gives us depth. If something were to happen to Chad, our trigger man, he’d be able to step in and perform at a high level.’”
The Byron Leftwich 2.0 tag lives on.
