Mike McQueary’s Testimony On The Sandusky Shower Incident, The Sam Hurd Drug Saga, and Other Football Nuggets

It’s been a busy 24 hours in the football world.

Mike McQueary provided some disturbing but important (and damning) testimony about Jerry Sandusky; the Sam Hurd drug saga continued to unfold; and Adrian Peterson explained one of his motivations for returning to the field.

It is disturbing to read about the testimony from Penn St. assistant Mike McQueary today and what he saw in the shower with Jerry Sandusky and a “10-12 year old” boy.

Some of the testimony from McQueary:

  • McQueary says he has “no question” he witnessed a sexual act between Sandusky and a kid, and he conveyed that to Paterno.
  • McQueary said he can’t say he is 100 percent sure there was sexual intercourse but that’s what he believes was happening.
  • McQueary:”They were in a very sexually oriented position…”
  • John McQueary (Father) said when Mike called, he heard fear in Mike’s voice and thought he had been injured.
  • McQueary said he didn’t contact police because “of delicate nature. I tried to use my best judgement … I was sure act was over.”
  • “I told them what I had seen … Was extremely sexual in nature, over the lines…”
  • McQueary: “I know they saw me. They looked directly in my eyes.”
  • McQueary also said he has never confronted Sandusky about the incident since.

This testimony from McQueary is extremely damaging to the defense of Sandusky. It’s also sickening to read and absorb as a human being.

The defense will look to contradict McQueary’s testimony here and ultimately in the Sandusky trial, using not only a contradictory email to a friend about whether he “stopped” the rape of the boy or not and hammering McQueary’s personal character.

It will be difficult for Sandusky and his defense team to counter the details and accuracy of Mike McQueary’s story, provided in such graphic and disturbing detail.

The Sam Hurd Drug Saga

In other troubling sports news, the incredulous and sad story of Chicago Bears WR Sam Hurd and his drug dealings have added an additional and burdensome straw on the entire back of the Chicago Bears organization. With a season that has plummeted south, this may be the backbreaker for their season and perhaps for GM Jerry Angelo’s future.

This was no small drug purchase either. Hurd allegedly said to the informant that he wanted to purchase “five to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week for distribution in the Chicago area,” according to the complaint. How’s that for your every day NFL Chicago Bears role model?

This story will only grow more difficult for the Bears and the NFL as additional details emerge. Hope Hurd enjoyed his dinner at Morton’s Steakhouse Wednesday; it may be his last good meal for some time.

NFL News Nuggets

Adrian Peterson Looking Out For Fantasy Owners

From disturbing to some much needed humor from the NFL of all places, specifically Adrian Peterson commenting about his status for Sunday’s Vikings game vs. New Orleans. Via the Star Tribute, All Day said he will play despite only being at 85% healed from his sprained left ankle.

“It’s very important, especially for my fantasy team owners,” Peterson joked. “They’ve been giving me a hard time on Twitter.” Love it AD!

All kidding aside, I know at least two Peterson owners who lost last week in their respective fantasy football playoffs.

Packers’ Plans

Look for the Packers to play Aaron Rodgers until the game is in hand, which may be early in the 3rd quarter vs. the offensively challenged Kansas City Chiefs. Matt Flynn will step in and continue the assault, preserving Green Bay’s undefeated season.

Will Ben Play?

The Saints and 49ers are tied for the #2 seed in the NFC conference with the tiebreaker currently in favor of San Francisco. Thus, the Saints and their fans are hoping Ben Roethlisberger and his severely sprained ankle will recover before the Monday night showdown at Candlestick.

Without Big Ben, veteran Charlie Batch will try and lead the Steelers to a win. It will be a huge break for the 49ers if Roethlisberger cannot play in their quest for the #2 seed, which means a bye and home field in the divisional round playoff.
