Mr. Scot

Does Mathieu get it?

62 posts in this topic

Jay Glazer reported yesterday that Tyrann Mathieu recently cancelled two pre-draft visits claiming illness.

PFT further reported that on a visit he did make, Mathieu made a lousy impression on a veteran player who had overcome his own off-the-field issues. The player said he came off as more interested in how much money he was going to make than in being a good player and that he didn't seem all that enthused about hard work.

Now, one day after the report of his being too sick for draft visits, he's inviting people to come party with him. The instagram invitation lists him as "First Round Draft Pick Tyrann Mathieu, aka Honey Badger" (this after saying he was trying to move on from the nickname and the image associated with it).

So you tell me, is Mathieu just a kid with a big personality or is he a numbskull that just doesn't get it?

He does not get it. Id love to have the player but he cannot be trusted and we have 3 nicklebacks already.

Unfortunately, he is a mixture of both. Ego + Immaturity is a bad mix. It will take more jail, being cut and on the brink of being banned for this kid to get it.

Don't think he gets it. After reports that he was unmotivated to even play in the National Championship game (which was evident considering he was targeted the whole game and got destroyed). This push is clearly a money grab, since he knows this is his last chance to make a lot of money(to buy a lot of weed). Too small, too weak, too weak minded, and doesn't have his priorities straight. We have enough small nickel corners, do not want.

We don't need him and I don't want him

I had actually forgotten about his reportedly saying he didn't want to play in the National Championship game.

His "after party" is scheduled for Thursday night in a New York City nightclub. I do wonder if he really believes he'll be taken in the first round. If so, I think he's in for a rude awakening.

He doesn't give a poo...

That joke is getting old, just like his off-field behavior.

I think he'll get drafted... but it won't be in the first...

Someone may take a chance on him in the 3rd, but probably he'll be in the 4th-5th.

He's a talent, but no... I don't think he gets it.

50/50 chance he's busted for pot his first season.

Is this an open invitation?

    • Was the reason I originally started watching the NFL and the Panthers and got me as obsessed as I am today.  Will forever be my favorite player. Wasn't always a role model but he's grown up a lot. He's a great father, family man, and I'd put his heart and will up against anyone's. 
    • I know the ACA only tenders subsidies up to 400% above the poverty level.  If you are on the border line you might want to consider,  am I doing better by working more hours or not ?
    • I'm glad peppers is back, but I really feel like we are going to be doing something special this year and i want smitty to be a part of it. he needs to at least finish his career here, but i think he's got a toughness and a fire that we need to get back. no more mr. nice guy. we tried that. this team, for whatever, isn't liked around the league, esp. among fans and the media and there's no amount of good things we can do to change that perception. we need to own it and be the next team that everyone hates, but can't deny the power of. We have the potential to be the next dynasty. I'm not sold that rivera is the one to lead that unless he goes 100% back to being riverboat and never regresses (which i am not counting on). I don't want us to cheat, but I do want us to be that team that will punch you in the face if you dare get in our way and then dance over you when we've gotten to our goal.   btw, the change in celebration rules kind of sets the stage nicely for a smitty return. he can show these young ones how it's done.
