Well, this mystery has been solved. Damarious Randall sucks.
Oh, wait, that wasn’t a mystery. Damarious Randall has sucked for over a year now. The mystery was why did Damarious Randall leave the sideline after getting pulled on Thursday night.
It was initially assumed Randall walked off because he was angry about being taken out of the game. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says it was a coach’s decision.
Apparently, Randall needed an attitude adjustment. Or at least that’s the assumption because such a move is nearly unprecedented.
“It was a coach’s decision,” McCarthy said during his Friday news conference. “My decision to send him to the locker room and frankly, we’ve got to be real honest here, we’re going to start evaluating and regulating conversation and things that go on on an NFL sideline? Let’s be real here. I know someone might make a good drama series out of it or something, but it’s not going to happen here.
“It’s an internal matter as I stated (Thursday) night. Anytime things happen throughout the course of our operation, whether it’s in a game, practice and so forth, I can promise you there’s dialogue and it’s an internal matter that’s being handled internally. I will make it clear because it was on the field, it was a coach’s decision, my decision, for Damarious to go into the locker room.”
What will be interesting is if the Randall will be in the Packers’ lineup moving forward. We’ve already heard he won’t be cut. However, Josh Hawkins played much better than Randall has.
Not only has Randall been bad, but when finally given a chance, Hawkins was solid.
It has also been reported that Randall actually left the stadium before the game was over. That was not confirmed by McCarthy.
However, it would certainly seem like it’s Hawkins’ time.
I thought common knowledge was he was sent to the locker room, but the question was whether he got dressed and left the stadium before the game was over.
This is effen crazy…
What is the realistic trade value for a 2015 first rounder who is now, cancer? That’s a serious question. What is the best they can hope for right now with this obvious bust? A conditional seventh rounder?
Maybe they can trade Randall for Gunter.
McCarthy is an idiot. Does he really think someone getting sent to the locker room by the coaching staff isn’t going to be newsworthy? That is an unprecedented move by them as mentioned in the article. What, Dom Capers getting fired and McCarthy says “Nothing to see here, keep moving, coaching decision.” and he thinks that will suffice? Hoody might get away with that in New England, but McCarthy can’t even hold Bill’s jockstrap.
Is a player upset he allowed a TD someone who needs an “attitude adjustment”?
Or… is a coach who kicks that player when he is down by humiliating him and estranging him from the team the real cancer?
“Uh, I will just embarrass the hell out of this young man and that will make him a better cornerback. Better? I mean the safety will start to become a cornerback…..”
Now, one of two possibilities here:
1. McCarthy had no idea reporters and fans would notice Randall was off the sideline. If #1 is the case then MM is a Dumb-Dumb.
2. McCarthy did it on purpose to humiliate and to set an example of fear to other players. In which case he is still a Dumb-Dumb but a mean one. And it also means all his press talk of “internal matter… internal manner… handled internally” is all disingenuous (a fancy word for lie). He put on a public show to humiliate. How very “internal” Mikey!
They never should have moved him to CB. This was obvious from the outset. It was done out of arrogance — “Hey, we are the greatest coaches, we will make safeties into cornerbacks, OLBs into ILBs, safeties into ILBs, WRs into RBs, lead into gold….!” Then, bam, it blows up in their face. Now, real coaches and real men would not have made the move initially, but, if they had, they would have said “You know, on second thought, not a bright move, let’s fix it”. But not MM. Acknowledge a mistake? Heck no. The Great Scapegoater does not accept blame! He scapegoats!
So then, who’s fault is it? MM has to frame it up and make it Randall’s own fault.
Randall would look great in purple and would make the pro bowl with a couple years of legit coaching at safety. Come to Minnesota, Demarious!
Oh shoot, I didn’t even think about how that TD affected Demarious Randall!
He must be really struggling with this. Ya know since it’s not his job to cover anyone. He also does this for free.
We don’t deserve you, go to Minnesota Demarious!!
The last time i heard someone call somebody else a dumb-dumb, i was in 3rd grade. Welcome to trailer park articulation.
Just another Cadaver Thompson Draft BUST!! We’re littered with them.
Need send out search & Rescue dogs for Biegel??
