Weird things happen in Week 1, which is essentially an extension of the preseason. And like the preseason, what happens in Week 1 is rarely indicative of what will happen as the regular season progresses.
Manti Te'o is just one of the guys.
Te'o, the linebacker from Notre Dame, was picked by the Chargers in the second round after slipping out of the opening round in part because of a poor performance in a blowout loss to Alabama in the national championship game.
Tim Tebow was "excited" about coming to the New York Jets. So much so, he used the word 44 times in his introductory news conference in March 2012.
The San Diego Chargers have taken quarterback Brad Sorensen of Southern Utah in the seventh round of the NFL draft.
After dealing with the commotion over his fake online girlfriend and his flop in the national championship game, Manti Te'o believes he's ready for the NFL.
Joe Flacco's impeccable timing earned him the richest contract for a quarterback in NFL history. That doesn't mean he's the game's best QB.
Flacco, it seems, is regarded as a guy who is just kind of there. He wouldn't be on anybody's bottom 10 list. Yet few people, if any, seem to regard him among the NFL's elite quarterbacks.

Mike McCoy's interview with San Diego went so well that both sides felt he was a perfect fit to become the Chargers' new coach.
