Marshawn Lynch several weeks ago told Yahoo Sports that he will be attending Organized Team Activities.
However, Lynch has gone back on his word and he is a fool to do so.
It was reported several times yesterday that Lynch was in town and would attend OTA’s that started today.
Well he still wasn’t at practice and Lynch needs to get it in his thick skull that he isn’t getting traded, which he stated in an interview on a California television station.
However, Lynch fails to realize is that Bills head coach Chan Gailey doesn’t care who you or how skilled you are, but rather how well you know his playbook.
If Lynch doesn’t get in soon he will be relegated to third string and will get very little touches and if he stays there all season it will only hurt other job prospects after the Bills as many teams will think something is wrong.
In the end, the only thing that Lynch is getting accomplished is making himself look like a bigger fool.
The National Football League brought back instant replay after a long hiatus, which in that time saw officials blow calls that couldn’t be corrected.
However, there are still those that think replay should be done away with.
Now, there is a reminder of how important replay is.
In a Major League Baseball game between the Detroit Tigers and the Cleveland Indians Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga caught the baseball and touched first base for what should have been the final out of a perfect game.
However, Jim Joyce blew the call and called Clevelan’s Jason Donald safe.
It reminds of Superbowl XL where Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tried a quarterback sneak and scored a touchdown, but many contend that Roethlisberger never broke the plain of the goal line.
Replay is vital to major sports as technology shows mistakes that are made and when people make mistakes it can sometimes haunts them for the rest of their life.
In the end, I feel sorry for Joyce as he will surely have many sleepless nights ahead.
