Urban Meyer on Major

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

Florida coach Urban Meyer certainly will miss new Bears safety Major Wright.

"Major looks the part of a football player, and he has a locker room personality that draws teammates and others to him," Meyer said in a statement. "He will contribute at the next level because he is a versatile player who will be a valued teammate."

Wright was well-liked by his teammates... except when he was hitting them.

"I get hit by Major Wright in practice all the time," cornerback Joe Haden said in 2008. "He doesn't try to. He just blows up the receiver and I'll be in the way. He tried to hit Chris Rainey one time and he knocked my helmet off because I got there a second before him.

"I just laid out for a second, thinking, 'If he hits everyone else like this, I don't know how they keep getting up.'"

Wright Wright your BloodyWellRIGHT

Starting to think I like this guy! Love big hits and Wright sounds like he delivers them all the time. Sounds like a good pick up in the 3rd round. Some projected him to be gone in the 2nd round

Meyer gushed about Tebow and most of his other guys, but the most he can say about Wright is "Major looks the part of a football player, and he has a locker room personality that draws teammates and others to him," Meyer said in a statement. "He will contribute at the next level because he is a versatile player who will be a valued teammate."

Looks the part of a football player? He couldn't muster up a "he is a heck of a football player?"

Meyer is a (jerk), make no mistake about it, but that is a scary choice of words, and Meyer is not one to speak without considering his words, except when it comes to Tebow, which apparently causes him to become a man-crush fanboy....

Well Joe maybe Meyer was tired after all his Tebowing. I am surprised Tebow still has a voice. Bradford was the number 1 pick but the draft is all about a guy who has no position in the nfl but is a nice guy. Colt McCoy won more games than Tebow and had far better stats, but nothing about him either. Nope its Tebow, another media creation that will probably bust out.

He doesn't need talent or ability he has the fire and the passion.
