This is great, I hope he becomes a Star...
Clancy and Gene Banks knew each other from some all-star basketball games in Pennsylvania. Had some spirited contests...Pitt actually won at Duke and then Duke won up there the following year.
Tinkerbell might have been a decent football player. I could still picture Jason Williams as a very good running back.
Just for the record, I'm a Chargers fan. If Greg can have half the success of Antonio Gates (and I think he can), that will make for a great life for Greg. This seems like an ideal way for Paulus to enter the league, where he can learn behind one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL. Maybe one day he'll be a Charger. A dream come true!
It is a reach, I admit. But I can see him in that role.
Either way, I hope he makes it no matter what the position. He took a great first step with this signing so congrats to him on that one!
Go Greg Paulus! Prove the naysayers wrong!

Greg is a great guy and a great athlete but Wes is not a fair comparison.
You yourself should know that while top speed matters in breakaway runs in football, you don't necessarily run FULL speed during plays.
But honestly, that arguement is neither here or there for me. I'm a proponent of Paulus the QB. The guy who just keeps proving me right...
The discussion we were having is about him compared to Wes. As Trouble pointed out, he is not particularly quick or fast for an NFL receiver while Wes is super quick (4.01 shuttle) and fast enough (4.65 40). All in all I just don't see it as an accurate comparison, obviously you can compare them I just don't think it is fair to Greg. Wes played receiver for 4 years in college and Greg played QB for one, that just doesn't translate into a good comparison IMO.
