LSU’s Leonard Fournette and Stanford’s Christian McCaffery has decided to forgo their perspective team bowl games to prepare for the NFL draft.
These 2 young men are making a decision that is in the best interest of their future. In other industries, this is called a 'Business' decision.
Others will say that these 2 young men are turning their backs on their teammates, coaches, school and fans by not playing in the bowl game. Others will also say that these 2 young men are extremely selfish in making such a decision.
In my personal opinion, I do not fault their actions at all; it's their choice,... no one but them knows their circumstances,... i.e, financial, health, personal goals,.. etc. From what I understand, these 2 young men are projected to go high in the 1st round.... in translation, they are projected to make millions!
And if for some reason (injury, bad showing..) they slip low in the 1st round, or even worse... if the drop below the 1st round, they will lose millions!
Again, no one but them knows their situation and circumstances that got them to make the decision they made.
I wish them all the best... and I hope & pray that they carry themselves with humility and class... most importantly, I pray that they 'Pay It Forward'.
What are your thoughts on this?
There is absolutely no question that Mr. Odell Beckham Jr. is one of the most electrifying players and the NFL! He is as close as they come to being a 'Human Video Game'. But some past events has placed a huge cloud over his performance on the field!
Some people say that Odell Beckham Jr. is a very passionate and competitive player,.. and he sometimes let that get in the way of him performing at 'his' highest potential.
Others are saying,... though we haven't heard about any major issues away from the gridiron,... the young man has some serious anger & 'attention seeking' issues,.. Odell Beckham Jr. needs to get professional help before something really bad happens on the field.
Or could it be a combination of the two?
What are your thoughts?
With all the off-the field controversy regarding Colin kaepernick this season,..... Now that he was announced the starting QB for the 9ners.... How do you think he will do as the starter?
Want to hear your thoughts......
There's an un-written rule in sports.... 'You can't lose your job due to injury'. But what would (should) you do if you were the Dallas Cowboys?? Rookie Dak Prescott has been playing 'well beyond expectations' during the first 5 weeks of the season. Hypothetically speaking, If veteran Tony Romo is ready to play next week,... Should the Dallas Cowboys pull Dak Prescott out of the starting lineup for Romo? or should they stay with the rookie while he's still on a 'roll'?
I want to hear your thoughts.........
