07:00 AM ET 06.12 | The wait over, Manti Te'o spoke at length on Tuesday -- nearly 20 minutes, in fact. He spoke to 41 media members before 14 video cameras. He spoke until the questions turned stale. Then, with the Chargers PR staff giving reporters their time, Te'o spoke some more as three photographers kept clicking away. Polished and polite, Te'o gave 33 answers. More telling about the Chargers linebacker is what those around him had to say. ... [One staffer praised Te'o's] habits, attitude and performance, calling him Tuesday an "absolute stud." The second-round pick knows how to work, when to open his mouth and ask questions, and as importantly, when to shut it. "A-plus," the staff member added. "All he does is show up every day and work," coach Mike McCoy said.
