Us either.

But don't feel bad -- not even NFL personnel executives have an inkling on whether he will be a future baseball or football star.

Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Media reached out to some execs to discuss some of the prospects that will be arriving at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. The intriguing ones were mentioned, which meant, of course, they had to discuss the Heisman Award winner.

One executive: "Murray will be the big story. Will he or won't he play football? How does he interview with teams? (His) Super Bowl media interviews were a mess. Overall, I think the QB field is wide open. Will one of them separate from the pack? That's what I'll be following."

Another: "It's a QB league and Murray is an outside the box prospect. Teams are anxious to get to know him. (The Dan Patrick interview last week) confused me. Teams want to find out where he is with baseball. Those conversations will generate a lot of buzz. Also, if he runs and tests, it'll be quite the show. He can fly!"

And another: "It's got to be Murray. We've all been told what he'll measure and run but I want to see it for myself. Also, it will be interesting to see if he's still so wishy-washy when asked about baseball."

Jeremiah isn't too surprised with the fascination behind Murray, and who can blame him?

It's a very unique situation, but to see there are multiple executives worried about his decision can't be the greatest of news for them, or the A's. But to see prominent people in football using the term "wishy-washy," just adds to everything that already has us scratching our heads. They also weren't the only ones that witnessed that awkward interview.

With all that said, sorry to report -- I have no, new news to give you. But it appears they have just as many questions as baseball fans do.
