Mr. Scot

What to make of Jonathan Martin...

And that's the reaction I expect most folks to have.

 

A professional offensive lineman with 'emotional problems'?

 

The trenches are a nasty place, not for the faint of heart.

 

I'm wondering though, how many would look at this and blame his teammates for being a--holes to him.

 

 

If it's Incognito leading the charge, then your last question seems somewhat valid.

 

I'm also kind of interested if anything like this registered on any teams psychological profile of him during the draft process and also if it was a factor in his draft stock dropping from top 15 to 2nd round

Matin has yet to file a complaint with the NFLPA, fearing retribution. It's almost becoming a Hard Knocks after school special

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
