I vote we come back to this thread in about 2 years and as a group twitter bomb the hell out of Merril until he shrivels up into a little ball and cries himself into unemployment.

No better place to say something stupid to generate headlines than first take.

There is some truth to what some of what Merrill said. Clowney does play to high and doesn't use his hands. He does give up on plays. He does take plays off. The problem is every defensive player takes plays off. On the plays he does "give up" he runs people down from behind on plays away from him a good portion of the time. But Merrill is way to far over the top with the heart break crap. He doesn't know his work ethic from game film that comes from practice. I like Khalil mack a lot but to say he is the best defensive player in the last 15 years, man please.

If Clowney played at Buffalo he would look 100 times better than Mack. He would probably get 20+ sacks every year in the MAC.

Eh, whatever. When you are really good you are going to have people hate on you. Look at Lebron, Cristiano Ronaldo, etc.

No worries. Either Merril Hoge is right or he is wrong. The next few years will be the proof.

Let Clowney shut them up on the field. Watch how they all come back and kiss and suck up to him. "Oh no, Jadaveon. I didn't mean what I said. I never called you lazy. It was just a ratings ploy." The haters will quit sipping on that haterade but our boy Jadaveon will see right through it and do what he does best and beast it regardless of what the sycophants say. :woo:

The stuff he said was over-the-top and almost malicious. The were inaccuracies and a terrible tone to the discussion. They said Clowney benched 16 reps. It was 21, and 11 of the 28 DE's benched more, and about 5 of those were 22. They talked as though he was some kind of lazy out-of-shape wimp. Clowney played with a couple of injuries this year (and minor ones as a sophomore). As far as tight ends whipping him - or any single blocker for that matter, it only happened a few plays. He was schemed out of stats, but he affected all games he was in. As far as heart for the game and work put -in, Hoge is simply speculating. I think the tone and over-the-top nature of his comments give away his bias. Clowney has every reason to think his face was spit in. Sports commentators often live by making wild statements in order to get noticed.

Good. I'm glad everyone's hating on him. That way he'll go in with fire.
