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

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!!!

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.

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.

Quick to jump to conclusions with no basis in fact to support your position, eh? My first favorite team was Florida when Spurrier was coach. When I heard that he was coming to S.Car, I switched. If I was bandwagon, I would have stuck with Florida for their 2 national championships.

You don't have to blindly agree with everything your team does in order to be a fan. People are allowed to have contradicting OPINIONS, guys. You may be surprised to know that unbiased non-Gamecocks fans may agree that Clowney didn't give it 100% last year.

Who will you cheer for when Steve retires? Exactly, case closed.

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

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.

You seem to like to jump from topic to topic without resolving anything. I guess you give up on your first unsupported statement that I am a bandwagon fan. Regarding your new question, I will give the Gamecocks a chance for a couple of years after Steve retires. If they make a bad hire and start sucking, I will choose a team that I like better. Maybe Ole Miss or Arkansas if they get rid of Biellema. I would ask you a question... but I don't care.

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.
