I often times find myself wondering how someone like Deion Sanders has a job talking in-front of a camera. These types of jobs should be relegated to people or former players that take pride in what they do. I watch quite a bit of NFL Network but if Deion or Warren Sapp are playing a big role on set then I change the channel. Life is too short to waste any time listening to the kind of rubbish that comes out of clowns like them.
I however don’t think that Deion is just an annoying analyst. I think that he is a bad human being who lives his life for no other reason than to make money. He claims to be this great mentor, meanwhile he never has anything good to say about anybody (except the equally annoying and messed up Ray Lewis).
A couple of years ago, a few weeks into the season, he claimed Rex Grossman to be the best QB in the NFC East. The Redskins had the best record at the time but are you kidding me? Grosssman was benched the following week. In that same conversation Michael Irvin proclaimed that he would take any other QB in that Division over Grossman. He made Deion look stupid. Because Deion is stupid.
So let’s get to the Dez Bryant situation. Deion apparently mentors people and gives them advice. I have never ever heard of a mentor or a role model ditching out on someone when they are at their lowest point. Yet here was Deion “cutting his umbilical cord” from Dez when he needed him the most. I thought to myself, first of all, be thankful Dez, but secondly I thought, why?
Then it came to me. I heard a report that Bryant backed out of a deal Deion had set-up with Under Armour because Bryant thought the shoes were uncomfortable. This is when Sanders became up-set with Bryant. Seems he had something to lose when Dez backed out.
Later Deion was saying things like “I’m not losing any sleep” (over Bryant). Doesn’t sound like much of a mentor to me.It appears that Sanders will only stick by you if you don’t actually need him, not that he can provide much of anything. His life is in shambles (much like Sapp’s), and all he is good for is contradicting himself.
Very recently the NFL concussion lawsuit came to a close, with a settlement being reached. Sanders went on record saying “the game is safe, I don’t buy all these guys coming back with concussions. I’m not buying all that. Half of these guys are trying to make money off of that deal”. Lo and behold last week Sanders filed a claim against the NFL stating that he is 86% disabled. Wow it never ends, what a joke.
So the next time he looks into the camera with a stupid comment, followed by the words “did I stutter?” Maybe he should stutter, it might help his lawsuit gain some momentum. I for one won’t be watching because I will have changed the channel long ago already.
