AdamSchefter: Great line from
Look, I get it. What Torrey Smith did last night was pretty amazing. He overcame an amazing tragedy, played a very good game, and was instrumental in the Ravens beating the Patriots. But this needs to stop.
Comparing Cam being incredibly competitive to a guy who just lost his brother is something that doesn't even make sense.
No one ever said Jordan needed to "stop sulking".
Competitiveness should be consider an attribute, not something that is frowned upon. Cam hates losing. Who doesn't? If you don't, then you're playing the wrong game. Sure, some guys are there to just get a paycheck, put some money into their bank account, and go home. That's not Cam. Cam is determined to put this team on his back and carry our team to the Lombardi Trophy.
How is that not admirable?
If I had kids that played football, I would want them to act like Cam. I wouldn't want them acting like somebody who just floats by. When you play a game, you play to be the best. You play to win the game. It should piss Cam off that our defense couldn't stop a damn thing. It should piss Cam off that the play calling gets weird in the opponent's territory.
I would want my kid to be like Cam, much the same as the be like Mike campaign.
