You are acting like that play didn't require effort or skill to notice the thing happen. I mean, isn't any long touchdown really a 'fluke'?
If you beat Revis in one on one coverage for a 40 yard TD vs a blown assignment where you sit and catch a lobbed ball with no one around you bc of defensive breakdown they are NOT the same. Sure they are both TDs but just about every WR in the NFL can accomplish the latter
But is this still relative to Payton vs Hardy? One is a Super Bowl winning coach whose heinous allegations affected football games. Vs a 6th round pick from Ole Miss on his rookie deal whose allegations affected...not a d@mn thing. No comparison.
You just are in massive group in regards to Payton.....and opt not to be part of the tiny one when it comes to Hardy. NFL will cater to the masses.
Big picture the Saints junk is pretty standard stuff that had gone on for decades. They simply got caught in the crosshairs and made the example.
Hardy's junk happened at a time where he was put in the crosshairs too....and he will pay too to a degree.
so effectively you'd be punishing him for just for being in the same general area where someone else did something bad? they might as well suspend the entire NFL then, i'm sure everyone has at least once in their life met a "questionable" person. hell cam was just at a club where a shooting occurred, wouldn't you say he's hanging at a place where questionable people are then? i guess we are just going to start punishing people for what other people do
Um, there is a difference between being in the wrong place at the wrong time and surrounding yourself with trouble. If you surround yourself with trouble it is simply a matter of WHEN.....
Cam simply was at a place where something bad happened. Wrong place wrong time.
Hardy was in court bc he elected to associate himself with drug using trouble....so eventually something happened. That in no way compares to Cam.
One of the two people had some control of being in a bad scenario. One had a LOT of control. Hardy
Jake Delhomme. He wasn't pretty but what he did from 2003-2007? You pay HUGE for a QB that can lead a team to that success. Delhomme before Tommy John had a magic and energy people feed off. Never had either once hurt....totally different man
