He isnt acting like the bitch Steve Smith is. ..A true professional
I always felt sorry for Clausen. There is no doubting Jimmys not,and never will be an elite NFL QB but he was in over his head here in Carolina. The poor guy worked hard and put forth an effort.He kept his mouth shut and tried to do his best in adverse situations,often his own fault.
I think she meant to try and make sure all the people are truly Native Americans. How many people over the years have said to you that they are 1/16th <your tribe here>?
I don't think most really give a sh!t. Seems like Native Americans know there are bigger and better things to get upset over. But that just might be the white in me talking...not the human.
You are 100% correct. I am part Native American on both my Mothers and Fathers side. I am not offended by having the name "Redskins" attached to an NFL football team. I have never heard any of my relatives complain about said name and would not be afraid to make a wager that majority Native Americans are not offended either. This whole situation likely started as a chance to make a money grab years ago and is now beng fueled by a miniority of sob sisters.plus a liberal media that needs to get a life and by inept senators that should be paying attention to the real problems in America.
Quite literally, Greg Little is probably the worst wide receiver that's been seeing significant playing time in the NFL. And even though the Browns are in need of wide receivers, they felt they didn't need one who was going to be a detriment to the team. If the Panthers are smart they will take heed and follow suit.
» Justin Dunk's take:
"Potential might be the word that best describes this massive lineman. Foucault has size you can’t teach and the frame to add some weight as well. He proved he is a big, strong and nimble offensive line prospect. The Montreal product led all blockers with a 4.61 shuttle and 7.50 3-cone time, and put up a respectable 22 reps on the bench.
He displayed the type of agility and footwork to make scouts think he has the tools to be a ratio-changer at tackle in the CFL, or at least a very good guard. Foucault has ability to finish off pass rushers, but he needs to do it more consistently and develop a mean streak."
Jason Avant sounds like a person of high character,according to this report..
(" Jason Avant is an avid Scrabble player. During Chris Berman's "Fastest Three Minutes" he referred to him as Jason "You Can't Always Get What" Avant. Avant and his wife, Stacy, live in Clementon, New Jersey. He is the son of Jerry Avant and Claudette Patrick. His brother, Edwon Simmons, was a baseball player, who was drafted by Baltimore Orioles and was a safety at San Diego State. He is now a talent scout for a sports agency in Chicago.
Avant is a Christian. Avant has spoken about his faith saying "I devoted my life to Jesus Christ on May 4, 2003. It was a day when, if you can imagine it, your eyes are opened to a whole different light. On that day, I had a consciousness of God that I never really had before. It’s sort of like being in darkness, but you finally start to see. I realized that day that all of the stuff that I learned growing up was backwards, according to the Scripture. It was the day that changed my life. I started realizing that I had a purpose, and every thought from that day on went through a filter of Jesus Christ first. Before I can make a decision I have to think, ʻWould it be pleasing to God?’".)
One thing you don't get is the fact that if the G.M. isn't a people's person then that could possibly trickle down to the players. No one wants to play for a team that disrespects players or mislead players. Football is a team sport so if the G.M. isn't building that team chemistry and team infastructure then the house could come down. Tampa Bay felt the effects from their head coach.
The man could be the best talent searcher in the world but if no one is respecting him and the players don't have confidence that the Panthers is a place they can comfortably call home, then him being a good evaluator is pointless because only old washed up players will come here for the vet minimum and potential talents will come here to strengthen their resume' for a one year deal then they will leave.
Hmmmm!!!! Marty Hurney was considered a people person by the players,how did that work out for the team? Not so good? Point taken,case closed.
