I was reading this article about the Dumb Dolphins today. I could help but laugh. First, when Tony Soprano… err, Sparano babbled forth his incoherent gibberish, I laughed. You’ll really have to read the article to see what I’m talking about. I couldn’t make any sense of it. The fact that Jason Cole, from Yahoo!, could make sense of it was amazing. Hats off too him!
Somehow, the Dullfins are making a great case for getting Jason Taylor less money… Well, at least that’s what Jason Cole is thinking. I’m sure there are others who are thinking that in the industry as well. The only problem is that Jason Taylor is exactly what the NFL and teams need. Rather than hiring thugs like some other teams, any team that picks up Jason Taylor will benefit tremendously.
Will Taylor go for less because of the intelligence lacking comments from the Dullfins? Not likely. Any team will benefit greatly from picking up Taylor. He’s worth more money because he’s not just a player in a football game. He’s a player in the game of the NFL.
The NFL is not only about football. It’s about honor, reputation, community, sportsmanship, and character. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to look no further than New Orleans two seasons ago.
