That Jets clip is bull. It was preseason. If he would have dived in there and got hurt everyone woulda talked about how dumb he is for doing that preseason. He should have had the foresight to know that people would criticize him for being pouty in the face of adversity and acted like he was trying to get the ball without actually going in there. I mean thats preseason football 101.

It's preseason, I guess the other players thought it was the regular season...

If you want to see an example of how absolute ignorance on a subject does not prevent most people from forming strong (completely idiotic) opinions, take a look at the comments section of that article.
I made the mistake of viewing comments on a Zimmerman Trial article yesterday and this article today. Let's just say I thought a little higher of society in general before reading the comments. lol

At first you think this:
Haters gonna hate.
But then you think how the media operates. Andrew luck is a damn fine quarterback. Might be great one day. Cam is polarizing which the media loves to exploit as villainous. Cam was supposed to be a one trick pony who was more of an athlete than a QB. He's shown otherwise. Luck has been labeled the incarnation of Joe Montana since he was a sophomore in college. Sports writers hate to be wrong and when they are proven to be, they go out of their way to tear that person down so they can save face. I like to think of myself as objective. When we drafted Cam, I thought it was a huge mistake. I believed the conventional wisdom. I was DEAD WRONG. I like that Cam gets disrespected. I think its going to keep him hungry. Plus its going to be sweet to shove the national opinion up the asses of smug, know-it-all reporters, when this team starts to win.
So enjoy the hate. I do.
