"I like an escalator because an escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. There would never be an escalator temporarily out of order sign, only an escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience."
So that is a problem the NFLPA and whatnot need to figure out, but just because their rules are old fashioned doesn't mean it doesn't state that he should get WR money.
He doesnt need WR money because the bum isn't a WR. He's a TE. When he was drafted, they called him a TE. On the Saints roster it says TE. On Grahams own f'ing personal twitter account it says TIGHT END. He's a TE, the clown just wants a fatter check than the exorbitant amount of money the guy already has.
I agree about the being filmed part, obviously that is ridiculous. As highly scrutinized as Cam was coming out of college, I don't think he was ever as high profile as Johnny Manziel currently is though, and certainly Luke was not. Johnny is just going to have to adjust.
Johnny brought that all on himself though. If he wasn't out acting like a jackass, the media wouldn't be following him around. He's "high profile" BECAUSE of how he has acted in the past, the media is hoping, nay, expecting him to do it again. They'll be there to run the story and get website hits/tv viewers etc.
Now Im not harping on the guy, he's just out having what he considers fun, I don't fault him for that, but when the kid comes out and whines about the media pressure he's under, well he's only got himself to blame. If he was boring, just went to class, went to practice then went to a bar/party WITHOUT being thrown out, he wouldn't have a fraction of the media buzz around him.
And im not talking about pressure to perform on the field, thats a separate thing. The cameras are on the dude because they want to be there when he does something "news worthy" like being tossed out of a strip club or something, which going by his previous history, is highly likely.
Yea, but my 2nd fav team is WAAAAAAAAAY down the list from the Panthers.
Im a Florida based sports fan, love the Hurricanes, Marlins and Magic. I root for the Dolphins when they aren't playing us.
So i'll pull for the Phins when I can, but the excitement towards them and anything they do is absolutely dwarfed by my Panther fandom. I keep up with the Panthers 365 days a year, me keeping up with the Dolphins goes as far as did they win or lose on Sunday.
How could he change the way it is played and evaluated when there have been many dual threat QBs before his time and still many during his time?
Because they weren't doing what Vick was doing. People bring up Young or Garcia? Are you f***ing kidding me? You cant compare the athleticism of those guys to Vick. Vick was on a FAR higher level in terms of pure athleticism.
Everyone in here is basically right, in one way or the other. Vick was absolutely not the first mobile QB, but NO one, I mean NO one before him did what he did in terms of running the football at that position. Vick was sometimes the fastest guy on the field, that never happened prior to him at the QB spot.
Like others I agree the name is offensive, but this country needs some offensive as there's far too much PC bulls**t as is. If some group has to "suffer" for it, so be it. And yes, using the terms "suffering" in this this issue is a giant, gargantuan stretch. Real suffering looks like the genocide in Darfur, not hurt feelings by a group of people in Washington.
At the end of the day it's just a video game cover.
Not to a guy like Cam. It's more than that. It's a status thing, it's recognition of his play. Let's not forget Cam said he wanted to be more than a player, he wanted to be an icon and an entertainer. Something as wildly popular as Madden can help validate that. This would also be a boost to our franchise. Before Cam, we never would have gotten this far. So no, it's not "just a video game cover".
I'm not so sure Sherman wins. There are a LOT of people that can't stand him due to his playoff rant. Hell a recent poll on ESPN had the majority of the US claim Patrick Peterson was a better corner and I can guarantee you that is purely because ppl don't like Sherman. He deff won't "obliterate" Cam.
