The only person who thinks Aaron Rodgers is disrespected is Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers is arguably the most talented quarterback in the NFL, but he still has a chip on his shoulder. In a recent podcast interview, Rodgers said that he’s still driven by being overlooked during his career.
Colin disagrees that Rodgers has been overlooked, pointing out Rodgers was a 3-star recruit, and was given a scholarship by Jeff Tedford, who, at the time, was the top college quarterback coach in the game. And even though Rodgers fell in the draft, he was still picked in the first round and was deemed the heir apparent to Brett Favre in Green Bay.
It’s hardly the Kurt Warner story.
“Aaron has built this up, Brady’s the same way.”
Coach Cal needs to realize the influence he has on the lunatics
A referee from the Kentucky/North Carolina is getting death threats after the Wildcats were bounced from the tournament on a last second shot. John Calipari was critical of the refs in the postgame press conference, and Colin thinks Coach Cal deserves some blame for signaling to the potential UK mob that the ref was to blame for the loss.
Colin thinks coaches have a responsibility to diffuse situations like this, not ignite them. Look what happened here.
“John Calipari and all coaches have to cool heated situations, not ignite them.”
If healthy, the USA soccer team can play with anybody
The U.S. Soccer team took another step away from the brink of World Cup elimination with a 1-1 draw against Panama last night. Even though it was a draw, the U.S. now has four points in their last to qualifying matches since Bruce Arena took over for Jüergen Klinsmann.
One smart move Arena has made is unleashing 18-year old phenom Christian Pulisic. Colin thinks Pulisic is the first truly transcendent talent that the U.S. has ever had, and for the first time, the U.S. has the players to be able to at least compete with the top teams in the world. That’s saying a lot.
“I believe we can play with anybody.”
