It was a chump move, but that's not what BADOL was talking about at all in the latest chapter of his Shady crusade.
It was LITERALLY one of my points.
You are breaking character to get serious about Shady McCoy?
When they acquired him I made the following unpopular statements:
1. Extension was a totally unnecessary waste..... (true.....he was already paid up front by Philly......I said he wouldn't see any of the extension years....and now I don't know anyone who thinks he will.....dead-nuts-on take.)
2.He was high mileage.....(true....dropped from 300 carry RB to 200 carry RB now, that's all he can handle due to wear and tear at this point.....which leads me to:)
3.He had injury problems.........(true about 5 different injuries in 2015 starting with a nagging toe injury and ending with a torn mcl..... and then missed time with recurrence of 2015 hammy injury in 2016)
4.He was low yards per carry/yards per touch at the end in Philly in part because he doesn't follow his blocking. That's why Chip traded him. He took too many runs to the sideline and therefore was a bad fit in Roman's scheme....(true, he continued to do his own thing in 2015 and in the process followed up a league low yards per touch season in 2014 with an inexcusably low 4.4 ypc 2015 in an offense that was otherwise inflating RB production).
The only thing I "doubled down" on was my belief that with his mindset and issues he'd be cut after his second season in Buffalo and nobody would want his toxic, selfish persona combined with modest production so his career would end soon.
I followed up all that heat with a December 2015 post....the low point of Shady's Bills career....... by stating that it might be a good thing that he bombed so hard in Philly because by bottoming out with embarrassment like that maybe Shady can see that he needs to make changes.......and that he SHOULD run for 5.5 ypc and score TD's at a rate similar to Karlos and MG in that Roman/Tyrod offense.......he simply needs to mature as a player and start following his blocking.
In the offseason he admitted to not following his blocking and leaving plays on the field and in 2016 he followed the path that Karlos and MG had used in 2015 and put up 5.4 ypc and double digit TD's.
So basically........I've pretty much NAILED the Shady takes.......but because he's avoided becoming a cap casualty I get some ball busting.
Which I find refreshing........since I am usually just 100% right.......and so I will continue to poke the thin-skinned among you while my Shady takes continue to be hot, fresh and of course, on point.
I just find it interesting that YOU OF ALL PEOPLE(homage to Tenhigh) would come out of character to be serious about Shady being Shady.
