Re: Congratulations 28! Nobody deserves it more!

Love DG but yeah I’ve heard he’s got a healthy ego, most big time athletes do.

He does a good job of coming off very likable in public… it’s possible to be both personable while also having a giant ego

I think the perception is when you see him on TV he seems very likable but man when that camera turns off totally different person
Fair enough, professional setting calls for professional behaviour

Congrats to 28, well deserved. I'm sure he was thrilled that this was done under Harris and not Snyder too.

Unless he needed a porta pot.

Re: Congratulations 28! Nobody deserves it more!

DG made a strange comment on the draft stage last night — “I’m back!”, which no one in that circus atmosphere knew what he was talking about. “Well, not as a player, but on the sidelines.”

We all get this, but an oddly self-centered thing to say in that context.

Riggins and Green my favorites from yesteryear. Long-live the undersized corner lol

I thought he just meant I'm back on the stage, then tried to make it a joke like 'no, I'm actually back'. Didn't read too much into it. Unless he actually is coming back as a coach or something?

I took it that he was back from his exile during the Snyder era.

Re: Congratulations 28! Nobody deserves it more!

Who knows what he meant, either way it was a bit of that giant ego shining through IMO

Still love DG though

He said Im back! On the sidelines.

Was just being funny like hey i can still play! From the sidelines!

Didn’t take it as self centered. Just being silly.

Re: Congratulations 28! Nobody deserves it more!

The only time I ever "spoke" with DG was at two (free) autograph signings. He was polite but businesss like with everyone. I thanked him and he said, "No problem". His wife was in my high school class, but name-dropping would have been tacky to say the least.

I went to a free signing with Art Monk at some mall years ago. I figured he would be the same as DG considering his reputation for shyness. Not quite. While he was far from jolly like Theismann or Dexter, he was all smiles and looked to be enjoying himself. And he even laughed at a joke I cracked.

I know, hardly high level encounters. But it's all I got.

Congrats DG!

Id put encounters with Monk and DG right above meeting Jesus but that’s just me….

Congrats to a legend! Wish I could have seen him play live. Everyone raved about his tenure, speed, and extraordinary work ethic. Great seeing this.

Yeah he's obviously my favorite all time player but I know this to be true. His appearance at the draft was embarrassing.

But I'm really glad the team did this, about time we change this stupid "retired number but not really officially retired number" crap.
