Beason with a subtle jab at the Panthers

Recommended Posts

I'm not gonna say that it was or wasn't a jab, but you would have had to be there to discern whether it was a jab or not.

 

agree w/ this. Would need to hear his tone & see his body language. 

 

Like I said in an earlier post, words taken out of context can sometimes have a different meaning than when they were originally said. 

 

IMHO it does sound like a condescending troll comment, but I didn't hear the interview and it could just be the typical media trying to stir the pot and make a story out of something that shouldn't be. 

 

I saw the original tweet RT by Gantt, and Darin Gantt is a know it all troll who picks up on troll tendencies.

What about this:

This may be a fact, but was it in good taste for a professional to point this out?

Someone should ask Jon about the last time the Panthers were on national TV.

It is called a fun fact highlighting how explosive the Broncos are and how ad Jacksonville is.

Why is everyone so sensitive?

So yes it was Professional. What about it makes it not?

It may be a fact but throwing someone under the bus to make yourself look better is very unprofessional. If someone needs to point out how "sad" the Jags are it should be the media or an unbiased entity; NOT the best team in the league (and 28 point favorites) who you will be facing in a week. It's called class and integrity. That wreaks of bad karma for the Broncos.

 

I can promise you that if the Broncos tweeted something like this about the Panthers - this place would erupt.

Yeah. Gantt is a troll. It's obvious. He's quick with the witty comments and certainly strikes me as a "glass half empty" type of guy. Unfortunately, writers like him are usually somewhat successful because they are good at pushing buttons and generating interest. I'm not comparing a guy who wears Birkenstocks and sweat pants 7 days a week to a media icon like Stern/Rush/Jon Stewart etc; but a lot of the people who listen to those guys are folks who just listen to them because they can't stand what they have to say and want to hear what they will say next. 

 

Look at these race baiting tweets from Gantt on Monday:

 

Darin Gantt ‏@daringantt

Baby girl left lunch box at home. In 5 minutes it took me to drive it to school, realized the racists in this town need new QB code words.

 

Darin Gantt ‏@daringantt

Because if you say a QB "doesn't have the mental makeup," "relies on athleticism" and "only wants attention," we're not talking ball.

 

 

Getting back on topic - Beason is a smart dude and I'm sure he knew what he was doing.

I don't think this was a shot at the Panthers. Besides, IMO it's obvious that the Giants have done nothing this year to deserve playing in primetime. It's not like we've done a whole lot more than the Giants to deserve a primetime game this year, but at least we smoked the Giants head-to-head.

You guys who think it's a jab are the ones that are salty.  The Panthers have nothing to do with the scheduling; ipso facto, it can't be a jab at us.

 

No. It was a snarky comment because teams don't get much prime time exposure when they suck, so Jon was basically making a comment about the quality of the team.

 

Prime time games go to big market teams and teams that are good. We have been neither and that is what Jon was pointing out.
