Coming from a guy who says whatever is on his mind, I have to admit I have new found respect for Will Blackmon today for doing just that. I'll even go a step further and give him the benefit of the doubt when he tells me that Jarrett Bush is much better than anyone thinks.
Apparently I offended Will this morning when I said the following:
It's mostly a bash on myself, but I concur it was at Jarrett's expense. Apparently, the venerable Mr. Blackmon, a good friend of Mr. Bush, did not like this at all replying:
"Ya'll keep dissin the jarret bush from the old defense. If u break down the recent film he has done better than what most people think. Green bay wouldn't have matched his tender for nothing. Then again that's what happens when ur on the outside."
You know what, I am going to give this round to Will. He is Packer, he does hang out and practice with Bush, and he also is in the secondary. As fans, perhaps we should take his word for it and see what happens? I'll be the first to admit that I am a "dumb fan" on the outside, so it would be foolish to try and argue with a man who plays side-by-side with the superstar himself. Correct?
It's true many fans have been overly critical of Bush, and in my opinion for good reason. But, Will Blackmon thinks we are all wrong. Perhaps we are.
That being said, I will not make a Jarrett Bush bash until further notice. I solemnly swear to take the opinion of Will Blackmon until proven otherwise. Most likely shortly after the first kick of the pre-season.
