I just felt bad watching the dude rip himself when he was one of the brighter spots today. I'd hate for him to become a headcase.
Noticed this too! I would feel better if we had a coach on staff who could really mentor this kid.

It's his first start, he'll get better

It's easier to develop him into a superstar with that kind of attitude than those who are full of it.

I was just talking about how hard he was on himself, not his play. I love this kid, especially after reading the article on his work ethic and family history...this is truly a special player IMHO.

True. Walter P cried after not playing well in his first start...the rest is history.

I'll second that. As negative as his attitude was towards his play after the game, it told me that not only was he not satisfied in the least with how he performed, with the hard work he's capable of putting in there's no reason he can't be successful in this league. I love this kid, and I hope he succeeds in this league, and especially for us, because he's got the attitude and talent that you want on every player on your team.

Yep, that's the difference between the McNabbs of the world versus the real HOFers. Heck, even in other professions, this holds true. The ones who are "never satisfied" gets the juciest worm, barring extrordinary circumstances.

:vomit:

THis basically means the Skins dont have any good players, another season down the drain, and most of these "new guys" will be out of the NFL in 2-3 years.

Yup. Absolutely. Same thing I was saying this summer after seeing this post-game interview

Hats off to Roy Helu. Great pick. Shanahan does know RBs. QB is up for debate.
