There are no Jewish wide receivers in the NFL. Not now, 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 Jerry Rice, but better than nothing?
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.
Still, no Jewish wide receivers in the NFL...
