THE A-TRAIN RANT 4.0!

The following rant for this week is dedicated to one particular quarterback that I have lost of respect for…Robert Griffin III.

Before this incident, last year’s Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor University (first in school history) was already on the verge of becoming one of the most humble players that would have never seen the word “diva” be near him. I was wrong.

Reading from a report from ESPN saying that the Rams were unprofessional by saying, “They were doing a lot of dirty things. I still think they have an extremely good team, that doesn’t take anything away from them, but the game was unprofessional,” Griffin said. Pause. So you just cleaned it up by saying that the “game” was unprofessional. Then responded by saying, “Who am I to talk?” Exactly, WHO ARE YOU TO TALK? Right now in the NFL, you’re still a nobody. That may sound harsh but he hasn’t earned his stripes…not even close. Now, I don’t know what happened with #1 overall pick Andrew Luck or if he has any problems with how he has been treated…after just 2 games. But hell, who are you? Just because you have gotten endorsement deals and made some pretty good finances…YOU’RE STILL A CRAB IN THE LEAGUE!

He then said, “I’ve barely been a pro for very long, but from what I experienced against the Saints, compared to that game, it was definitely unprofessional and it does need to be cleaned up.” 

Now, crap was being done everywhere on the field. And I know that other players around the league experienced that. But I don’t hear any complaints from them. Now while he may the 1st to speak up about this issue this season, but it just goes to show how much this league is putting up quarterbacks and wide receivers on this high pedestal and the high possibilities of them being protected by team owners and of course, Mr. Goodell. That’s why these replacement refs are horrible. But that’s the price that is paid when a union can’t get it together with the league. Just goes to show you how much the real ones are needed.

RGIII, you think that the RAMS (OF ALL TEAMS) will play dirty with you…wait until you play the 6 games within your division. Did you forget what division you are playing in? It’s totally defensive-minded and they don’t give a damn about what you think or say. Especially what YOU said about how the Rams players were saying that they were going to hit you after every play. As a matter of fact, you better licking your wounds now because these teams are making a promise to put you on your ass after every play. So see if youI’ll look forward to each division game. Looks like you need a valuable lesson on being an NFL pro. I don’t care who you are off the field. You can be a great individual but on that field, you’re nobody to me. I’m still wondering if John Madden is becoming old and senile for saying those “great” comments about you. BUT’ THAT’S WHAT THE DEFENSE IS SUPPOSED TO DO! IT’S WHY US FANS PAY THEM…AND FOR YOU! You keep asking for protection like it’s a cry for help. You sound like a punk. I’m going to talk like you did, “What do I know? Who am I?” I’m a fan. I’m a blogger. I cheered for you. You are a member of the Big 12, a conference that I despise. I can’t stand that conference. Sorry, got personal.

But this is personal, sort of. And now to finish off this rant to RGIII…I want you to remember this one thing and I’ll quote The Rock.

“BOOTS TO ASSES!” Remember that. Because that’s where YOU will be every week until YOU retire from the NFL. WELCOME TO THE NFL, ROOKIE!

THE A-TRAIN RANT 3.0!!

It’s time for another great rant coming from the A-Train…you should love this one. Here we go.

  1. Josh Morgan…you are “The A-Train Rant” DUMMY OF THE WEEK, WEEK, WEEK! Hope and pray that Mike Shanahan give you the pink slip and tell you, “Today is your last day as a Redskin, please turn in your playbook.”
  2. Speaking of football, good win for the Jeff Fisher and the St. Louis Rams. Got that first win and RGIII took his first loss, also means that you shut up John Madden…at least for this week.
  3. Andrew Luck is a beast? Too soon???
  4. Good Sunday to have Cardinals at the end of it. The St. Louis baseball team beat the Dodgers keep a one game lead for the second wild card spot (may have meaning after all). Shoutout to the Arizona football team (too young to really remember the team being in St. Louis), going into Foxboro and knocking off the New England Patriots in their home opener. 1st time any team has beaten the Pats on their home field for their opener. Tom Brady still wondering, “We lost to Arizona? In our home opener?” Yeah, Tom. You did.
  5. Mizzou will be get the tar and feathers beaten off them for the next two weeks. They are about to learn what the SEC really feels like.
  6. Speaking of the SEC, one of those teams will be in the national championship, again. If not careful…it’s LSU/Bama part 2. People will hate that for life! I for one, would love it all over again. Just keep showing how flawed the NCAA system really is.
  7. After watching Peyton Manning against the Falcons, (BOLD STATEMENT TO MAKE) I think Eli Manning will be better than his brother. At least he’s got one thing on Peyton…more Super Bowls.
  8. The New Orleans Saints need some serious help. But thanks Roger, you screwed up not only them but the NFL as well with your patty cake approach to protect your precious golden-arm quarterbacks. In the illustrious words of Tia and Tamera, “GO HOME ROGER!” I know it was bad. So what!
  9. Back to the NFL, these replacement refs have got to go. I tried to support them last time and now I can’ t take it anymore. I think it was FoxSports.com columnist Jason Whitlock that said on Twitter…”the refs don’t understand the NFL philosophy.”
  10. LA Lakers center Dwight Howard had stated through “a source” on ESPN.com that he never wanted to be hated…Brother, that’s all you did was cause hate. People will hate you regardless. If you are successful or better yet, just because you are black. Yeah I said it. The race card still plays in this world that you and I live in. It’s sad, but true.
  11. Speaking of LA Lakers, Ron Artest (I refuse to call him Metta World Peace) said that he believes the Lakers can go 73-9. Hey Ron, why don’t you just say 82-0? I mean you got the right coach to do it, right? You got Phil…eh…Mike Brown to do it. Plus all those injury-plagued players on your team like Pau Gasol and hell, even Kobe Bryant. What other bums, I mean players do they have…well there is Steve Blake, Jordan Hill, and my favorites Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. Looks like you got all the right pieces in place. All you have to do now is get past the Spurs and Thunder and the Miami Heat (paper champs) and you’re in. Well, that was a good dream to not see unfold. I know we have a season coming up but that damn sure won’t happen. Sorry Laker fans. Keep dreaming!
  12. Oh yes…this is a must. After watching Night of Champions I have come to the conclusion that the WWE wants CM Punk to fight The Rock at Wrestlemania. Just to give this idiot the main event he deserves. Otherwise, he’ll lose the belt at Hell In A Cell. (SIDEBAR NOTE) Good to know that Jerry Lawler is OK and released from the hospital. It would have been a sad day if it was more severe. Now lay off the ropes and just commentate.

ONE LAST THING…SHOUTOUT TO MY HOMEY Twillie Cottingham celebrating a birthday today! Make sure you follow her @MissESPN34…fellas, if  you looking for a lady who knows her sports…she’s one of them. Die-hard fan! (She’s going to hurt me for this)

I’m done. More to come soon. Hopefully a radio show soon. Stay tuned.

Please post your comments below. Greatly appreciate it. Bad comments (that will depend on how I feel) will get the boot.
