Football is largely a sport of men trying to be better, tougher, stronger than other men. Yet professional football players are also young men who have arrived to the NFL from different backgrounds and childhoods…. and many arrive with an important tender side.
A look at the “Round 2 Blues” … It was actually snatching a victory from the jaws of defeat that Washington did not have a second-round choice in each of the last two years, via the Montez Sweat trade with Indianapolis. If your argument is that you would take Montez Sweat over two choices in that round over the last two years -- that's a good point. However, you have to factor Dwayne Haskins as the first-round choice in that same year, and he was a disaster.
Let’s put down the groundwork on Stephen A. Smith and the Washington Football Team: The colorful ESPN personality knows infinitely less about Aaron Rodgers and the WFT than you do. So our mention of Smith’s views of the situation, via ESPN’s “First Take,” are repeated here not for their news value (for they have zero news value) but rather for their entertainment value. For that is the only real NFL value the purposely outrageously Smith offers.
