Default Clowney Haters

swarming like flies. can't watch a game this weekend without the announcers talking about his draft stock dropping, laziness, etc etc. AFTER ONE GAME. can't wait for him to shut em up between the hedges.

Clowney can add Matt Millin to that list. Said Clowney took too many plays off and also said he has poor mechanics.. Blah, Blah, Blah.......Never once mentioned the heat, or his stomach virus.

The media doesn't want him to screw up at all. Trust me, if the media had their choice they would have wanted him to have six sacks on Thursday. So no one is hoping for him to "screw up."

But in regards to how ratings and "clicks" work, it is going to go like this..

1. Clowney plays awesome and is dominant. This is desired outcome.
2. Clowney doesn't do much or plays average, but something else comes up that they can focus on. Such as his "conditioning." This still gets clicks.
3. Clowney plays average and there is nothing to write about. This doesn't get clicks and is the least desirable outcome.

Thursday night fell into category number 2. The media is always going to go for that option over option number 3.

Look at Johnny Manziel on Saturday. He came out and only passed the ball 8 times or whatever. He did well, but didn't do anything spectacular. So the media went for option #2. To make a story out of something else. Because the third option is to basically just report nothing. That is the worst option in their eyes.

I put my trust in coach Spurrier. He knows how to manage and coach players through the superstar type stuff. He is our really large superstar besides George and maybe Sterling in a while. We proclaim our own superstars year in and year out,but this is somewhat different.Spurrier has coached many all american types in his career. Personally I thaught the whole thing was blown out of proportion. EVEN Mussberger said he should get a pass because of the heat. Besides you can't be out of shape with that physique Clowney has got. He looked good as freshman when he got here but he didnt look like he does now physicaly.He worked his tail off in the gym. I feel sorry for Georgia Saturday. The one they need to stay on and who needs to stay focused is Quarles who I think is the top defensive tackle in the league.

It is human nature, at least in America. Try to tear somebody down after building them up.

There's a reason why Millen will never sniff an NFL GM job again after he left Detroit in shambles. Kinda funny to hear he made those comments about Clowney too considering he called him "the crown jewel of the 2014 draft" during the Carolina/Clemson broadcast last year after Clowney's five sack performance.

Yea they brought him up during the Louisville game and one of the announcers said that Clowney takes plays off and doesnt give 100% every down..

Being the best comes with it's downside which is being under the microscope for every single thing you do

FWIW, I believe we have Nessler and Blackledge for the game next week. They are for my money ESPN's best crew. I don't see them throwing fuel on that fire.

I doubt Clowney gives two poots in the wind what Matt millen says about him. I know I don't. He is one of my least favorite guys on ESPN.

Clowney will be fine. He just needs to learn through all of this that people will turn on him on a dime and praise from those who truly don't give a crap about you is just as worthless as the venom that gets spewed at you. If he does his thing like he always has, he'll be fine.

Look at all the drama surrounding Manziel, it's no surprise the Rice players were pushing every little button they could find, and he snapped rather than trying to rise above it all...maybe and apples to oranges comparison, but I see Clowney shrugging it all off and coming back like the beast we all know he is!!

clowney was effective on the plays that he played...he was also being held like a felon. however if he wasnt sick, there wasnt any excuse for him to be sitting out so much. clowney is a (very) big boy he has to handle some criticism when he doesnt play as well just like he can drink up all the praise that followed 'the hit'. i think you'll see a very motivated JDC in Athens next Saturday. Erin Murray is already pissing herself you can be sure remembering the last time Clowney threw her like a rag doll and won the game

you know for all the hype about the hit on smith in the outback, my favorite Clowney play by far is him icing the UGA game in athens two years ago when he threw murray and caused that fumble
