You know what's really funny... all those x-players turned NFL "commentators", gave every reason from racial to stupid when describing the Eagles and why they got rid of him. Deion Sanders being one of the most vocal loud mouths at the time, followed by Warren Sapp.
HAVEN'T HEARD A PEEP FROM THESE GUYS SINCE!!!
Where have you been? I had to work late... Oh these? Yeah, it was 'camo day' at work again .
Hmm, maybe we can trade Vince Young to the Vikings for Adrian Peterson
I'd still start Shady McCoy any day over Peterson. I'm telling ya, if he stays healthy, Shady will do some special things in his NFL career.
In a remarkable turn of events, I agree with you. AP is great, but he's been ridden hard, and at that position, he is likely to start to fade. Additionally, running backs tend to fade very very quickly. Look at Willie Parker, for example, or Earl Campbell. Bettis and Emmitt Smith are notable exceptions, but even they weren't the same players late in their careers. Shady could be special. Why wouldn't he be, he's from the city of Champions, after all.
We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.
I can't think of anther athelete that is so overrated. It's remarkable that his reecord of "worm-burners" is only overshadowed by his tendancy to throw so hard that recievers can not hold onto the ball.
