There is a big difference between being Joe Cool when everybody on your team is behind you and trying to STAY cool when you know that all aren't. Questions like 'what will they think if I screw up?','how many players actually feel the way Suggs does?', and 'does this put me on a tighter leash?', creep into one's mind.Suggs is a great athelte, not a great mind! Who cares what he blathers about, I am sure Joe "cool" Doesnt.
At this point in the season, what Suggs did was off the charts stupid and totally uncalled for no matter how he feels personaly.
