Oh, and he's an idiot too. Did I forget to mention that? In Jason's latest hate fest against the Colts (the team that gave a raw deal to Whitlock's best friend, Jeff George), he makes the claim that Peyton Manning is not as "mentally tough" as players like Steve McNair and Brett Favre. :
I'm not calling Griese, Simms or the Mannings wimps. They are not. But there are levels of toughness, and they'll never be as tough as southern good-ol' boys such as Favre and McNair. You have to miss a meal or two or wear your cousin's old clothes to be as mentally tough as Favre and McNair.
Jason, I know you were probably distracted while typing this story, stuffing your face with yet another creme-filled donut from the complimentary hotel buffet table, but when you insinuate a player is not "mentally tough," that means you are calling them a wimp.
I won't even comment on Whitlock's notion that guys like McNair and Favre are more mentaly tough than Peyton Manning. I could post Manning's record against both QBs (6-3 against McHurt, 1-1 against Farve), but that would only make Whitlock look like even more of a fat idiot.
Folks, being raised poor does not make one more "mentally tough" than someone raised with privelege. Keyhawn Johnson was raised in the tough streets of LA, and he's a complete idiot, with a long track record of doing and saying stupid things. Meanwhile, Marvin Harrison grew up in a family that was well off, and he's a future HoFer.
Did I mention Whitlock was fat and stupid? Did I?
