SAVED FROM SHAQTIN’ By Arthur George-Special to BASN JaVale McGee is reclaiming...
Straight No Chaser: As The World Turns
it was a socially significant moment in the male soap-opera called the NFL. Favre exhibited what makes him a golden boy, a legit Great White Hope – who can actually deliver, but Young made his enemies eat black crow.
The guy some less then empathetic bastards tagged a suicidal imbecile behind the center, the cat with a Wonderlic score which matches the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field in December – rose to the occasion and was . .
This a trait the Black QB is seldom described as, erratic, unreliable, unpredictable, inconsistent – yes, efficient, no.
If the seasoned veteran Kerry Collins could not lead his Buffalo Soldiers to victory . . . how could this “boy” lead them around the corner even? How disappointing was it for the nay-sayer’s when Young went 15 of 18 for 135 and a TD.
His “panic driven runs . . . ” strategically broke down the defense, he seemed as calm as a Caribbean breeze, and in complete control of the team.
A team of young Black men who no doubt rose to the occasion – understanding exactly who was rooting for Young to fail.
Just ask Jake the beheaded snake in Carolina, Trent Edwards up in Buffalo, Brady Quinn - the list is endless of dudes ridding a rollercoaster throughout their careers – they are very few individual players who have a Dante Marino type in a zone career.
coaches – as boys, actually perceive them as not much more then a man-child . . .
adult children.How many NFL plantation owners see the world, see people really no differently than their fathers and grandfathers? That’s all I’m honestly asking. How many of these men reflect the racially segregated schools, neighborhoods and churches they grew up in?
tomorrow’s a different day. They’ll be discussing your lack-of . . . intelligence before you know it.
Pontificating about your initiate inability to decipher the defense, read coverages and lead men into battle. Son, you’ve got to never forget the vast majority of those folks in the stands are but fair-weather fans . . . .
This was a noble act – most NFL QB’s don’t have the wheels nor balls to do. And you think his men don’t recognize his desire to win, his tenacity and determination, his leadership?
That one individual play should be used to market and promote the Black QB. There should be a campaign to promote them – since there clearly is a plan to undermine and attack them.
I’ve come to the sad conclusion; sure, Russell’s got the physical ability to prosper in the league, he appears somewhat bright – but he is not a student of the game, I wonder if he’s ever been a student of anything?
But, he does not posses the will, the desire, the fire to silence his critics. I do believe he’s sittin’ fat n’ pretty, and just does not give a flying flub what folks say about him . . . he’s laughing all the way to Fort Knox.
This fool just does not get it, his embarrassing stat’s, his silly-ass songs after the games, when he pronounces his play as OK, all right, pretty good, when in reality this big pussycat is aiding and abetting those people who want to make the argument the Black field general is a clueless Corporal.
What was he? 17-of-23 for 240 yards, 3 TDs, nevertheless, the Black Quarterback‘s cerebral credentials, his work ethic is incessantly under constant attack.
They’ve got a head coach by the name of Jim Caldwell.
You might not pick that up by merely listening to sports news, for whatever the reasons, sports writers seem determined to undermine Caldwell’s coaching impact while maximizing Peyton’s every move.The Colts are the last undefeated squad in the AFC. Jim Caldwell is the first rookie coach since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger to win his first seven NFL games. Undisputedly it’s Peyton’s Place, he’s earned that, but he does not do it alone.
You’ll have to stumble upon that little Caldwell tidbit. But if you recall, Tony Dungy dealt with the same type of slighting at the hands of “fans”.
Hell, with fans like these . . . who needs enemies?
