Surely you remember the assassin.<quoted text>
Well, not exactly like Michael Vick.
Upon further review,(pun intended) that comparison is kind of unfair to Vick.
Football players are commodities Rogue. Not people. You are worth only what your abilities on the field dictate. When was the last time anyone made a NFL roster for being a decent person?
Vick eventually learned to utilize check down receivers when he got in trouble. Instead of bricking it 3 yards short of the line of scrimmage. Which is why Vick's tenure in the NFL lasted a decade longer than Tim's. As a matter of fact... Vick is STILL an active New York Jet.
Being convicted of a crime doesn't make you less of a quarterback.
Tebow could have been a future candidate for sainthood and it wouldn't have improved his patented "wobble ball" one bit. Let alone his inability to determine which backers were blitzing and which were peeling off.
Ray Lewis KILLED a guy with a KNIFE. He is without a doubt in my mind... a future hall of famer.
One of the most feared Steelers linebackers ever was Greg Lloyd. He was so vicious that a huge banner over the 50 yard line said "Just Plain Nasty" with the number 95 right below it,
He was a notorious bastard. Just one of the worst personalities in football at the time. He made no apologies. Got arrested all the time. He actually called Dan Marino before a game and told him he was going to take him out in the first quarter. Dan called the police.
Took Greg about 5 plays to do exactly that.
Lloyd's warm up gear consisted of a shirt that simply read "I wasn't hired for my disposition."
Why would you ever hire a guy like that?
Because he could absolutely de-cleat a 230 lb running back with a full head of steam.
THAT is football.
Or was he before your time? LOL
