    Jeremy Bloom

    Jew Score:



    April 2, 1982 —

    There aren't that many white wide receivers currently in the NFL. In the last 20 years, it's been Ed McCaffrey, Brandon Stokley, Wes Welker, and that's about it. Good players, sure, but not exactly Jerry Rice and Randy Moss.

    So we feel pretty safe in saying there haven't been any Jewish wide receivers in the NFL. Certainly not in the last 20 years. Maybe not ever.

    So, when Olympic mogul skier — turned college football wide receiver — Jeremy Bloom was drafted by the Eagles in 2006, we thought that we had our breakthrough. Bloom, half-Jewish, was a highly-regarded prospect. Sure, he wasn't going to be Rice, but he might have become McCaffrey.

    Or, y'know, not.

    The man who once said "compete like you're number one, but train like you're number two," played like number two and is now out of football after being cut by first the Eagles and then the Steelers.

    And that's just fine with us, since Mr. Number Two has gone ahead and made one more choke job in a career full of them (we haven't even mentioned his failure at the Olympics), throwing over his Jewish roots to become a born-again Christian.

    Yeah. Good riddance.

    Verdict: Barely a Jew.
