That article has basically the best comment on the Clowney Bullshit I've ever, ever heard:

Quote:
All of you falling in for these sensational reports, please let him miraculously fall in the draft. I'd love for the Eagles to have him with a point to prove to all the naysayers. Go draft "Johnny Football" and see where that leaves you, besides having drake attend all of your games.
That pretty much says it all right there.

The article was pretty good and seemed to be very fair but day-um! The comments are brutal towards Clowney.

Why all the Clowney hate? He's a 21 year old kid and there is some serious vitriol from people.

the hate is usually from people that didn't watch carolina games, never heard of clowney until the hit, and only know what espn was saying at the beginning of last season. People like that just assume he is some diva that only cares about money and himself and that's really not him at all. If you notice, the fans, players and coaches of sec teams that had to play against him every year, and even clemson fans admit how good he really is.

This "Clowney Hate" thing may have began vs UNC where media hype met up with the real world and put Clowney in a situation that even his great talent could not overcome.
TV cameras were trained on him even when the play was on the far side of the field from him. Normally he never pursued plays beyond a certain distance. He played the game the way he knew how to play. Why waste energy running after a RB 25 yards away when the defense already had 5 other defenders within 5 yards of the RB?

Here is where excessive media attention FORCED him to change his style of play because if he didn't pursue distant plays at full speed he would be labeled "LAZY". If he did pursue plays not in his part of the field he would waste too much energy and get dehydrated and winded.

It's easy to say Clowney should have ignored the media's expectations a of him and stuck to his own proven way of playing as long as you're not the one being insulted on national tv. Instead of being allowed to "trail" a play at half speed as lineman are trained to do" he was forced to run full speed simply to appease the name callers. On a day when it was 100 degrees and muggy Clowney had to learn another way to play football. It reminded me of gold touraments where Tiger Woods wasn't even playing that weekend yet all you heard was announcers talking about Tiger.

so.... Don't hustle, or risk dehydration and being winded? Good luck playing a HUNH offense this year with that mentality.

Go ahead and flame me. Go ahead and distort what I meant because that is the type of person you are but after you do that you need to tell us what is the real reason behind the Clowney hate thing.

BTW I just put you on IGNORE.

Must be a slow news week to go over the same bickering about Clowney since the last time he played.

It feels like ESPN is trying to manipulate the NFL draft.

I agree. They've already made up their minds and I think Clowney is headed to Texas. There is no quarterback that is a once in a generation player worth passing up Clowney for. Plus, the owner is an Gamecock.

Knowing Bob McNair, he is all about creating value for his team. If getting Clowney is the best thing to do, he wouldn't care if clowney played for Clempson.

JD is a bigger franchise player than any 2 QBs projected in the first rd. Not saying Bortles or Manziel will not show out....but they could all be flops. JD will not be a flop.
