It was Jamal Lewis...
to play football, not to play trumpet
Could you or anyone else summarize this for us people who have a circle-slash ESPN at work?
Jamal Lewis says Mangino is overworking the team.
Jamal Lewis called out Eric Mangini for "overworking" the Browns.
"There's talent everywhere, but that talent has got to be ready for Sunday, it's got to be fresh for Sunday. You can work all day, but if you're going to work like that, you're probably not going to get what you want out of your players."
Anyone who has seen the Browns this year would question the first part of that sentence...
You're not allowed to visit ESPN but you can peruse Mgoblog at your leisure?
Sigh. As a Browns fan and a Wolverine fan, it's been interesting watching the adjustments for the new coaches. And by interesting I mean "please make the losing stop". At least the Wolverines can actually score on offense.
I'm a Lions fan.
Many Monday mornings bring the feeling of being dong-punched not once, but twice.
It's about Jamal Lewis saying Mangini makes the Browns practice too hard. If you can go to www.cleveland.com/browns you can see a slightly different version of the same story.
Players whine about practice and not winning. Cleveland sucks b/c Brady Quinn is a loser. Derek Anderson is just as bad. This team has 5 O TDs this season.
2 or 3 hour long practices for professional football players?
OH THE HORROR!
"This is his show, not mine," Lewis said. "You got to take care of your crop. If you don't, when it comes time to harvest, you're not going to make no money because the crop is no good. That's that." - Jamal Lewis
That's a freakin sweet analogy.
He has a problem with the team being overworked but instead of going to his coach about it he talks to the media? Some of these guys are idiots.
