"It was a little slippery out there and I slipped on one play where Gruden referred to me as a fish out of water," Beason said, per Steve Reed of CarolinaGrowl.com. "I appreciate it. It's just a little added motivation, more fuel to the fire. When I see coach Gruden I'll let him know how I feel about it."

It's not like Gruden crucified him on TV. He didn't seem critical at all. :confused:

I think Beason overreacted to the comments.

But you know PFT loves to stir the pot.

I think that may have more to do with it than Beason.

To me the most shocking thing about that article was that Beason played the SAM last year.

Florio didn't even link the source article. Here's the real one..

“It was a little slippery out there and I slipped on one play where Gruden referred to me as a fish out of water,” Beason said. “I appreciate it. It's just a little added motivation, more fuel to the fire. When I see coach Gruden I'll let him know how I feel about it."

Added Beason: "You're not going to look perfect on every play.”

He's not "bristling". Context is everything. F**k Florio.

The players and support staff have a responsibility interact and make sure the are in the proper cleats for conditions (see Clausen interception among numerous other occurances). I think Baltimore did a better job of that than we did. My perception is they slipped a lot less, but I don't know, it could just be me screaming "haha!! f**ker!!" at the TV every time one of Ravens fell down. The staff/players should have been on this with the first slip out there. Maybe they give them baby cleats in preason so they don't tweak as many knees or twist as many ankles.

^That's what I think was the main problem, but Beason did over-pursue on the play. The slip came when he tried to use his speed to get back into position. On a dry field, or in the proper cleats, he would have.

wanna bet this doesn't get through?

I generally don't much care for you Fiz, but I would give you a big sloppy kiss if you were in the same room as me after that. And I'm pretty sure Mike and Greg will omit that little gem.

I agree Montsta. Some times I hate to read your posts Fiz, but you're a hell of a guy to have on our side!
