Now he is holding off till next year when he can make big bucks. Why risk the injury and lose all that money he can make? I guess you dont mind that at all. I do. I hate players who all of a sudden explode in their final year of their contract to get fat and happy.
    I have NEVER gotten on JPP, thats other people on this board, I have had back problems so I been defending him all season, you must be talking to somebody cause its not me.

    Yeah was a "crash for Clowney" fan but starting to think they should go another route. He doesn't want to play college ball and get hurt? So what happens when it's contract time? Lately his play has not been great.

    I didnt mean you said that specifically, I mean if you are defending Clowney that way, then I guess you don't mind any player in the NFL playing not to get hurt (less then 100% effort) until his contract year.

    IMO, if Clowney wants to prove he is the best, he needs to play like it, not take the year off because he already showed flashes. We have no idea if he can consistantly show he is a beast, or if he will just do this in the NFL as well.

    And last year? Im not saying he is definately doing that, just that I have seen other players do that and JPPs path is kinda resembling it. He made his splash, got a chamiopship, and hasn't done anything since. And next year if he all of a sudden explodes again, he gets paid top dollar.

    Totally agree
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    Flozell Adams was a probowler every year, and he sucked. Probowl is a popularity contest man. You know that.
