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.
