I know this isnt about Tuck's Quote but this is about Osi and what he got and what he said.
Umenyiora, who agreed in June to a restructured one-year, $6 million contract, is finally healthy and happy. Smiling and continually adjusting his Yankees cap on Friday at the Giants’ relatively quiet Sunday-in-the-park training camp, Umenyiora, 30, said the team knows “how much pride I have and how competitive I am.”
“Usually, you would’ve heard my mouth by now,” he said. “But, in this situation, man, I just want everybody to succeed. I’m just happy here.”
He also said he believed the Giants had “the best team in football.”
Why cant he just play hard??? If someone paid me 6 million for 1 year I would do just about anything asked of me, with a smile. Oh yeah I forgot, he does smile, even when he gets torched.
"what is pathetic is someone who lacks compassion and the understanding that human beings go through **** and football players are no different"
What is it exactly that Tuck is going through? Self doubt? thought of retirement? Thinks he sucks? Torrey Smith's younger brother died (oh I know what that's like too btw) and he played a game the same day so don't even go there with what Tuck is going through..doesn't amount to a hill of beans in comparison.
"If you think things like this are a sign of weakness then you are nothing but ignorant. I would assume you are young person with very limited life experiences. If you arent then there is really no excuse for you then"
--Ok, this is where your post got personal..so I'm going to respond personal. I'm ignorant, with very limited life experience you say? I've been in the military for 15 years. Been in a leadership role for most of them and at this point I can safely make the assumption that you have little or no life exerience in this area to say the same. I've probably had more "life experiences" in my career than you have in your whole life and that includes the years you have yet to live out. I have 2 sons that are Autistic and will never have a fair shot at life and me and my wife are the only people that love them unconditionally and probably the only ones that don't judge them ..and you say I don't have compassion that I don't understand what human beings go through? You wouldn't last a week living my life. Go F yourself...you don't know me..you don't know hardship, not on my level anyway. So stop pretending you got me all figured out.
