After a turbulent year on the “Monday Night Football” booth, Booger McFarland has been honing his ribs on the ESPN analyst stand for the 2020 NFL season.
In the roundtable discussion on the “Monday Night Countdown” of “Dwayne Haskins”, McFarlane expressed this opinion, that’s good, that is, it will attract people’s attention.
The Washington football team released Haskins on Monday, which is a shocking decision, considering that it only used the first-round pick in the Ohio State quarterback last year. However, if Haskins’ performance on the court, his off-court COVID-1
In conversations with Randy Moss, Suzy Kolber and Adam Schefter, McFarland talked about Haskins And portray it as part of what he believes is a bigger problem among NFL players.
This is what he has to say:
“Especially young African American players…”
McFarland said: “Usually, young players, especially-I will move on-especially young African-American players, because they account for 70% of the league-they enter the league and ask themselves if they are right.” “They enter the league. It’s not that, “How can I be a better player?” They didn’t say, “How can I be a better teammate? They did not say, “How can I be a better person.” How can I get my organization out of trouble? “
“That’s what they said. They said, “How can I build my brand better?” How to better build your own social media? How can I exercise on Instagram and show everyone that I am ready to participate in the competition, but when I enter the game, I am not acting? “
McFarland compares Haskins to JaMarcus Russell
McFarland’s view is not entirely unique. He cites repeated comments made by critics who are on par with the problems of millennials and Gen Z members who do not know a world without the Internet or social media.
But he made his own adjustments to those vulgar metaphors on Monday and applied them to a specific group of people, namely black NFL players. He went on, summoned Haskins, and hugged JaMarcus Russell, the famous National Football League bust, the former Oakland Raiders first overall pick.
“Unfortunately, Dwayne Haskins is not the first time I have seen this,” McFarland continued. “This won’t be the last one. It bothers me because many of them are young African American players. They come in and they don’t treat this as a business. It is still a game for them. …
“I saw the quarterback did it. I saw JaMarcus Russell did it. The first pick in the draft, they gave him $40 million, and he threw the money to the damn guy because he didn’t take it seriously. treat.
Names that do not appear in his name include Johnny Manziel, Ryan Leaf, Paxton Lynch and Jake Locker, among others The bust of the quarterback clearly did not meet the critical criteria he raised on Monday.
Media games mainly involve the speech that attracts you to write or publish. Hot-selling products abound, because they are good for businesses. McFarlane paused for a moment on Monday, interjecting “I’m going to move on”, and then delved into his hot scene.
Whether he likes it or not, he will definitely attract attention on Tuesday.
