Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

probably been mentioned...but Clarett wont be drafted because of his 40s...but because he decided not to do any other drills because of it. i do realize that 40s dont mean shit when it comes to game time, but not participating shows a big me first attitude...

he'll have to prove himself if he goes undrafted...do not be surprised to see him possibly in Canada...

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

If I was a NFL GM I'd take a chance on him late in the draft, he's worth a flyer in the 6th or 7th.

Sorry this is long winded.

I am not saying we should sign Clarett or guys with attitude problems. It just amazes me how in this overly hypocritical conservative time we live in, some want us to field a team of boy scouts.
Back in the day before the overly aggressive media would dig into all aspect of a players personal life.... some of our past all time great Redskins were colorful, entertaining players and some even had attitude problems. Would you not have wanted them on our team if they played today?.

John Riggins was considered a cancer with Jets and forced his trade to the Redskins. Once here, he sat out the entire 1980 season in a contract dispute. He also was a raging alcoholic. Do you remember the famous black tie dinner after the second super bowl, where he was sat a table with Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Conner. In front a table full of embarrassed guests, Riggo proceeded to get stinking drunk and offend O'Conner. Then told her to, "Lighten up Sandy baby." He then proceed to pass out and start snoring loudly during a speech. Everyone in this banquet room could hear him snoring.

Sonny J., Billy K. and few others from the "over the hill gang" used to sneak out of their training camp dorm rooms at night after curfew to drink and play poker well into the night. Then they would arrive at practice the next morning all hung over. If that happened in today's NFL they would get suspended and branded as not being team players.

Dexter Manley - Need I say more.

Tony Peters - After 1982 pro bowl year, suspended for coke.

I am getting bored with what is turning into the No Fun League of bland and boring players, that talk a lot BS and try to say the right thing to score points. The hypocritical bible thumper's that are not really living the life they preach. I have nothing against religion, I have a problem with some of the players that pretend to be religious because it makes them look good.
On most good teams you have a wide range of personalities from boring to brash and arrogant. On occasion you take a chance on a great player that broke a rule or two when they were young (Warren Sapp and Randy Moss).

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

why would i want a boy scout team? i didnt say that

i would take a bunch of alvin waltons if i had to. he had a bad attitude that was good for the game. look at ronnie lott, a bad attitude in the game, not towards people. clarret is gonna stink up the league IMO. because of attitudes towards his own people. he just showed us the other day that he is a complete child that still doesnt belong in the nfl. pouting and quitting in the nfl is total and complete garbage and shouldnt be put up with. players that say "me me me me me me" shouldnt be tolerated. thats some of the attitude im talking about. but who knows, maurice might just make it with out reminding people of it everyday himself

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

Good article about Clarett

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft0...ory?id=2001738

Sounds like some reasonable explanations to me, he bulked up too much citing how scouts were drooling over Greg Jones last year, he may have overtrained, etc.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

I am not sure if anyone else posted this but Terrel Davis had a horrible combine, he benched only 13 reps, and ran something like a 4.7 40 which is not much better than Clarett's time of 4.8. I am not saying that Terrel Davis is great but he was pretty good in Denver, and IMO what Elway finally needed for him to win a Super Bowl.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

I think the pressure just got to him, he had a dream and to him it may seem like the world is trying to take it away from him. He will do well in the league with the right coaches and system. I wish we would take him but, we know that won't happen.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

I want him too, diehardskin. I don't wanna trade up in the first round to get him. However if he falls to a late round pick talk about bang for your buck.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

the problem is everyone knows his name now, so bang for your buck is out the window if an excitable owners jumps to early... if this kid wasn't on the news for the last two years he'd just be another RB with a bad time and would go undrafted... at least he's got the PR side of football nailed...

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

Yeah That Guy. If scouts were stupid enough to completely disregard him being one of the best freshman college running backs anyone has ever seen. They might forget about him. The fact of the matter is he has instincts and added a lot of bulk before the combine to become a larger type back. That slowed him down a bit. Clarett is a great back - I'm guessing you didn't watch Ohio state in that championship year.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

while Clarret is a talented rb, he still has been heavily overhyped especially given the fact that he only played around 11 games I believe of one season of college football 2 YEARS AGO!! I wonder though how much press he would have gotten if THE Ohio State wasn't in the running and eventually won the National Championship that year he played.

true but I'm willing to bet the majority of coaches and owners would prefer not having a player in the public spotlight for similar lapses in judgement. I really only see a couple teams seriously being willing to spend a mid to late round pick on him, but then again I was suprised as hell that mcgahee went in the first round 2 years ago even though I knew if he got back to full strength he'd be a heck of a back. I mean this is a sport after all and the bottom line for a vast majority of the league boils down to potential.

Re: Clarett runs a 4.82 40

that was years ago, he hasn't done anything worthwhile since... and his attitude continues to be not that great. We'll see how he does i'm sure, but i dont really see him putting up big numbers in the next two years...
