Tony Dungy Archives
Everyone knows Tony Dungy’s take on gay marriage. The gays aren’t qualified for marriage let alone equal rights in his opinion. That’s what “the Lord says” and he’s “on the Lord’s side”. He also doesn’t think that new Bears quarterback Jay Culter is mature or good enough to justify the amount of hype he’s getting in Chicago.
“[The Bears] took a risk [trading for Cutler]. I think they took a risk specifically with beating the Green Bay Packers in mind,” Dungy said Wednesday. “[They] I really think Chicago gave up a lot to get a quarterback who they believe is going to be the final piece of the puzzle. But I am not sure he has won enough to merit that yet.”
…Quarterbacking is so much about leadership and so much about doing things under pressure. There is going to be a lot of pressure on him. … We’ll see about his maturity level. That’s what I would question. And some of the things that happened leading to him leaving Denver … that would concern me as a head coach. He can make all of the throws, but quarterbacking is much more than just making throws”
Does this mean the Lord is against Jay Cutler or that he isn’t on the Lord’s side? What does this mean for Lovie and the Bears this coming season? Who else is on the enemies list? Hines Ward? Tony Romo? That red-headed stepchild on Diff’rent Strokes? Maroon 5? Oh wait, that’s my enemies list. Um, forget you just read that.
Former Michigan and current Indianapolis Colts running back Mike Hart just doesn’t know when to be quiet. He should have learned his lesson when he called out Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh for criticizing Michigan’s low academic standards for athletes.
“He says we don’t have great student-athletes, but he just accepted one of our transfers,” Hart said. “What kind of sense does that make? Obviously, he wants guys like us at his school. I don’t know how he can say that. He’s not a Michigan man. I wish he’d never played here.”
Just think. Michigan might have beaten Appalachian State if Harbaugh played there last season.
It turned out Harbaugh was telling the truth for the most part. The Michigan football team was all about general studies and not communications. According to Pat Forde, “only one junior … declared a major, according to the guide (in movement science)” in 2007. “In 18 years of covering college athletics, I’ve never seen virtually an entire junior class without a major.”
Now Hart’s gone and done it again. The sixth round pick is claiming that the NFL isn’t as hard as he thought it would be.
“It’s a little different,” Hart said Saturday at Randy Wise Chevrolet in Flint, where he signed autographs. “The only surprise is it’s not as tough as I thought it was going to be, as far as practice and those type of things,” he said. “It’s more laid back.”
Hart was selected in the sixth round of the April draft by the Indianapolis Colts. He said: “Indianapolis is a different organization. You watch ‘Hard Knocks’ on HBO and you expect to be hazed and a lot of those things, but the Colts are a lot different. It’s not as bad as I thought — we don’t get taped, we don’t get hazed with the Colts.”
Hopefully Hart thinks OTAs are similar to training camp. The coaches and veterans must love hearing him say practice isn’t that hard or that he’s not getting hazed. It’ll be interesting to see if he thinks the same way when he’s duct taped to a bed while getting teabagged by a camel during training camp. Then again we probably have it wrong. Tony Dungy probably has his players read his book and go out on the town to haze gays while Marvin Harrison shoots off his guns like a Palestinian prisoner release celebration.
