Rutgers: Mike Teel Needs To Find The Bench

Robert ZendzianCorrespondent ISeptember 21, 2008

It is apparent why QB Mike Teel needs to be benched for the rest of his football career.

Reason #1- In three games he has only thrown one touchdown. With weapons like Britt and Underwood, this is unacceptable

Reason #2- In these first three games Teel has thrown six interceptions.

Reason #3- There is no future after this season for Mike Teel. This season is lost, it is time to move on.

Reason #4- His interceptions are a contributor to the poor defensive play.  The defense makes a stop, gets off the field, then has to go right back out there again.

Reason #5- Not only should he lose his team captain status, he should lose his scholarship and his spot on the team after taking a swing at his own teammate. Excuse me, but why do you get to be mad when you are the reason the offensive side of the ball is struggling.

While I have never been a fan of Mike Teel, I have never felt so disgusted with him.  There is no excuse to swing at a teammate.  He is an embarrassment to Rutgers University.
