Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie said some interesting things in an interview with his hometown newspaper. This nugget may grab your attention. Find out why he signed with the Broncos.
“They told me about my flaws. Nobody had done that, and it impressed me,” Rodgers-Cromartie said Friday, wrapping up his three-day basketball camp at the Palmetto Boys and Girls Club. “They told me what I needed to work and how they would get me better instead of telling me about what I could do.”
“Nobody had done that (told him about his flaws)”. I find that very hard, if not impossible to believe. A better explanation is that DRC had never listened.
DRC has spent 5 years in the NFL. There is simply no way that he hasn’t been confronted about his issues. His play has been highly erratic. Andy Reid called DRC into his office in December and threatened to bench him if DRC didn’t play better. DRC did respond to that. Are you telling me that Reid didn’t talk about some flaws in that meeting?
I say it over and over. Players are the worst source of information. Some are liars. Some are idiots. Some shoot you straight, but they are in the minority for sure. Most players either can’t handle the truth or just don’t want to face it.
