Reid is sooooooooooo much better than any safety on our team and any other safety that is a FA. It is total BS that the kneeling thing is hurting his signing. This man is a class individual, a good teammate, and someone who actually believes in something. I wish we would sign him… but I am like 99.9999999% sure we won’t due to the kneeling.
Did Reid kneeling suddenly make him suck at football? Is Reid kneeling somehow a bigger black eye than players getting arrested with DUI, domestic violence or accused of sexual assault by multiple people?
Sign the man, our team and locker room will be better for it.
Eric Reid is a good football player why not sign him on a team friendly deal? Oh that’s right glazers got Trump dick in their mouth. Wouldn’t want 2 mess up their relationship with their pal. This team needs more good players and 2 win. I really don’t see why no team would sign him at the least 2 a 1 year deal. Can anybody say blackball??
Give me Derwin James if the big 3 are gone. Reid is good but comes with alot of unwanted distraction. I wouldn’t call it blackballed more so than teams just don’t want to put up with the media attention.
Can’t believe we won’t sign Reid. Its just such a no brainer. I like James… but my only concern about him is that he was on an FSU team that absolutely quit. I’m a huge FSU fan… but that defense quit at times this year. On one hand, I don’t think James himself ever quit.. but as the most talented player on the team, he wasn’t able to lead his teammates away from quitting. In fact, if I recall correctly, Derrick Nnadi was the only defensive guy that was really pissed at the other defensive players for quitting.
In terms of character, the two FSU players in this year’s draft I would take in a second are Derrick Nnadi and Tate. Tate played very hard, even when injured, and even when some of the team was quitting.
To be fair, I don’t think James ever quit. But again, the fact that there were others on his team who did quit is a big deal. I just can’t imagine other recent FSU stars (Telvin Smith, Rhodes, Ramsey, Joyner, etc…) would have allowed that to happen. I may be unfair in saying this… but I have never seen an FSU team quit – ever – like I did this year. Jimbo should have benched a lot of them, b
So, Casren, you say the team quit, amd Jimbo should have benched a bunch of kids, when Jimbo quit on the team in October?
Get real. You’re a blowhard, hot take machine. James is a full-blood leader, no questions. If the 3 non-QBs are off the board, he’s the no-brainer pick as the best athlete in the draft, and best fit at a position of need.
Ernie… dude, trust me, Jimbo definitely quit on the team. I agree. I am glad he’s gone. But, certain FSU players have even acknowledged that they quit in games this year. All I’m saying is that it gives me pause.
The culture at FSU was utterly toxic the last 2 years under Jimbo
the coaches werent holding anyone accountable and letting the players get away with whatever they wanted
back when Telvin, Joyner, Jameis were there you had a ton of alphas that policed the team and kept everyone in line and motivated as well as coaches with fire and drive
after we won the Title Jimbo got complacent and things started going downhill. guys got selfish and werent playing for eachother like in years past
Derwin is probably one of the few guys that kept the FSU team together last year. imagine how much worse it would have been without a guy like that……………..
one guy can only do so much and to lay ANY blame at James’ feet is absurd. he went 100mph all season and busted his ass on a bad team. couldnt ask for any more than that
hell, look at what happened to FSU’s defense in 2016 after James got hurt. effort and drive went off a cliff. as soon as he was out the players looked confused and leaderless on the field. no coincidence there
