I thought the link read: "Inmate Interviews With NFL Stars"...

Thanks Wash Post for wasting time w/ an on-field crybaby and off-field idiot. Good job.

This was funny. Sounds like a pretty cool guy.

What a stunning waist of time. You've got a bright guy with a real past and you want to talk about McDonalds, food & tats? This is the dumbest thing I have ever experienced...

Kellen Jr. rocks. I got him on my fantasy team

Father was great. Of the son, perhaps what is best said is that in some cases the NUT does fall far from the tree.

Who cares what Winslow, Jr. thinks or says?

Interesting character, who needs to talk more on the field.

Great idea for a feature, interviewing players so we get to know them. Perhaps stick with Redskins though.

Despite it being a great idea, the interview here was terrible. I mean terrible. Ask questions, get insight, who gives a flip about a cereal he liked when he was a kid that is not on the market, or how many BBQ sauces he gets at McDonalds or the ratio. Maybe ask, what is your favorite fast food, let him answer and then move to next topic. 2:45 on sauce choice is a joke.

Again, great idea, terrible execution.

A racist stool sample.

I am beginning to think that online blogs attract the most hateful and bitter people in our society.

he's ok

Nice drop at the end of the game. Maybe some of the BBQ sauce will make your hands sticky so you can CATCH THE BALL. Unlike his father, the son is not very good pro.

Remember when the NFL used to be about football and not an extension of People Magazine?

I'd take him over Cooley but i guess that a backhanded compliment. Better hands and better taste in music.

Posted by: KY9000 | September 18, 2009 12:55 PM

Does he talk about all his dropped passes? What an overhyped jackass this guy is. He should just stick to picking up girls in hotel bars and slinging back Zimas

Posted by: Doug | September 18, 2009 1:21 PM

Zimas. They still make those? Soldiers don't drink Zima. In all seriousness He is a Pro Bowler but I think his best days are behid him. Staf infection set him back and now he acts like he wants to cruise the rest of his career.

You're an idiot if you take Winslow over Cooley, which makes sense cause Winslow's an idiot too.

This guy is a spoiled punk and his father is a jerk. When Junior was injured on a motorcycle when riding one was in violation of his contract, Senior said "Hey folks give him a break he is only a 21 year old kid. When I turned 21, it was at Great Lakes Naval training center during the Viet Nam war. I was in boot camp and had I violated the terms of my contract I would have ended up in the brig. That's jail for you land lubbers. I am so sick of the sense of entitlement and special treatment for athletes. This is the kind of guy that would have gotten his buddies killed if he was in the military because he thinks only of himself. Scumbag!

@Cavitalis You're an idiot if you would take Cooley over Winslow!

Posted by: kstatle | September 19, 2009 2:44 PM

To the vietnam vet up there. Ummm calm down, nobody cares about your days at war. A lot of people do dumb stuff when they're 21. I'm just glad none of my stuff was all over the news. Give the guy a break, the motorcycle happened what, 4 YEARS ago! MOVE ON DUDE. jeeesh
