Default Clowney feel's it is a "spit in the face" to question his effort

http://q.usatoday.com/2014/03/25/nfl...on-his-effort/

"South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney is tired of hearing that he takes plays off and disappointed during his junior campaign.

“When they say that, I take that as spit in the face, really,” Clowney told NFL Network. “I wouldn’t question that about me personally. I love the game and don’t think I take plays off. And I wouldn’t question how much I love it because I wouldn’t be playing this game if I didn’t love it."

Don't ask me why I put an apostrophe between the l and s in feels

He does have a point. Also, It's not his fault the cameras followed his every move. We have a bend-don't-break type defense, those guys are on the field a lot when that's the case. Sorry if he rests his hands on his hips after the series where he was in the frame for nearly
Every tackle. Even if that meant chasing down the WR. Not to mention being triple teamed

He saves it for big plays. He is not an every down DE. Neither are most. He is still one of the best DE ever to come out of college.

And I bought his jersey before the season started, but was ashamed to wear it halfway through the season. Got me a Shaw jersey to replace it with that I'm proud of though.

Indeed, no one can chase the quarterback every down, a DE's job isn't to go full go every down, it's to contain most downs and go full go when the oppurtunity to make a play is there, if that wasn't the case no pass rusher would be on the field for more than half of the game.

In Deke's system he wants the linemen to attack on every play. That probly had something to do with the line's conditioning early on in the season.

I disagree with that to an extent. His first 2 steps were quick on 99% of plays he was in. He may have slowed down or stopped chasing from the back side on too many plays but EVERY player would do the same thing if 70 of the 80 plays in a game were run away from your side or a quick pass designed to keep you from making a play. Put any other player in the country in his position and the result would be the same.

Maybe he was a little out of shape to start the season and had a big head from all the talk in the off-season but to say he took plays off is not completely accurate IMO.

It should be a spit in the face and I hope he is using it all to fuel his fire and work harder to be the rookie that gets 15+ sacks in his first year.

Time for JD to do the spitting, as it were. I would have been frustrated at the insistence of the media to make a story when there is none. I think he handled it admirably but now he needs to shut them effers UP!!!

Him being in the frame every camera shot I think really pumped up this idea that he takes plays off. I think he gave average to above average effort when compared to any other D1 lineman. I remember watching UCLA vs. VA tech in the bowl w/ Anthony Barr, who some at the time were suggesting may be an equal prospect to clowney (his hype has fallen a bit recently), and only heard his name mentioned 3-4 times with no cameras ever directly focused on him. I don't think Clowney is overrated at all, he's just a victim of the media overrating what a defense end can do...even the best one.

The media hyped up Clowney with "The Hit" and now criticizing him for his effort. Welcome to the Big League Clowney, if you can't stand the heat stay out of the NFL this is only a taste of what he is going to get. Even the HBC said Clowney's work ethic was mediocre. He came into the season out of shape, he is the only who takes whole series off, he is the one who called out the defense and then laid out for the Kentucky game, he is the one who bought into his own hype, this is on Clowney and he needs to grow up and start taking responsibility like a man.

Default Re: Clowney feel's it is a "spit in the face" to question his effort

a lot of people have taken the opportunity to go over the top with criticism. if they see on tape that he didnt perform well on a play, that gets extrapolated for the whole game somehow. then it goes from the reality of he doesnt go 100% on every single play (no defensive end who gets near that much attention and playing that many snaps does) to he's the laziest player ever. this nonstop effort nonsense is detracting from what will really make him better which is becoming a better technician.

it should piss him off and drive him to be better.

I have always have been a Clowney backer and all the guys that say that he holds out on plays I would like to see those people take the double and triple teams and see if they could do any better. He is a gamecock and we should be proud that he gave what he did for 3 years for the university. These people that bad mouth our fellow gamecocks then you are not and never will be a true fan. We do not need any fair weather fans. The football program is the best it has ever been so lets back this program and give these boys all the encouragement that we can.

Maybe Ole Miss or Arkansas if they get rid of Biellema. I would ask you a question... but I don't care.
Changing teams when the team you're currently a fan of isn't good anymore is pretty much the definition of a bandwagon fan. That's ok though. Keep buying multiple jerseys every season and other USC licensed merchandise and I have no complaints.

If you disagree with something in your family does and criticize them (or "bad mouthing" as you call it) are you no longer a part of your family? Being a fan isn't about never expressing negative opinions, it's about remaining loyal and supportive of the institution and affiliated parties regardless of things that go on that you may disagree with.

Stating facts isn't bad mouthing it's telling the truth. If someone called him a no good fat ass lazy POS that is bad mouthing. Take your holier than thou attitude else where. This I'm a better fan than you bullcrap needs to go away, there are those of us who see things in reality and then there are those only see through Garnet colored glasses and that are not objective at all.
