Today is always one of the most bitter sweet days of the football calendar, we call it black monday. That's the day when you show up after a game and find out that one of your teammates has been cut or let go or whatever term you prefer. That's the bitter part. The sweet part is that they didn't call you on the off day or have someone waiting at the door for you. The worst is when the terk misses you at the door and you go workout and then they cut you, now that alone is enough to drive a man crazy.
I remember being one of those guys who was scared to answer the cell phone, or worse, the hotel phone. Those days have passed for me for at least a year or two ago, but at some point rather if you're Steve Mcnair or Jerry Rice that day will come for us all, and it's a sad day so you feel bad for those guys.
Because sometimes it has nothing to do with talent but sometimes it's just the numbers. Or some draft pick has cost too much money so the GM or scout can't afford to show their boss that they made a bad call so they don't give you a fighters chance.
So all you fans, don't think that the best man always wins. For those guys, use that as your motivation. Look at me. According to the Chicago Bears scout I was really nothing to look at. Thank god the ravens took the film and watched it for themselves. Thanks da bears.
