I thought too much was made of the controversy surrounding Magic coach Gundy calling Shaq out for flopping like a fish out of water while trying to guard. Gundy’s remark hurt Shaq’s pride, which is why Shaq responded with stinging criticism of his own. reality, what the so-called flop boiled down to is Shaq can’t guard one-on-one, but then who can? Shaq used to despise opposing centers — Vlade Divac comes to mind — for the same tactics, which overmatched defenders resort to with hopes of leveling the playing field. Shaq, welcome Jacquizz Rodgers Jersey to the other side of the fence, buddy. you know how it feels trying to guard you.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Last, Kasa was like any other fan of the Broncos. On Super Bowl, he’ll be one of the Broncos. The tight end, out of football since the, got a phone call while sitting the stands last weekend, watching the Broncos beat New England the AFC title game. He dropped his phone and cracked the screen — that’s another story — but when he finally restored his service, he learned the Broncos wanted to sign him to the practice squad to help them get ready for the Super Bowl against. It’s been pretty crazy. Kind of indescribable, said Kasa, who Jared Allen Jersey was signed Monday and would have to be activated from the practice squad order to play the game. These guys have been working hard toward this for a time. For me to come at the end here, is just kind of out-of-the-ordinary event. I’m honored to be here and ready to do whatever I can to help. That includes playing the part of Panthers tight end Olsen practice. He’s been studying film of the Pro Bowl tight end to give ‘s top-ranked defense accurate portrayal. role is to be the best Olsen that I can, said Kasa, who went to high school Broomfield, Colorado, and played at the University of Colorado. I didn’t this coming. I thought the was drawing to end.
I was ready to move on to the next year. Surprised me with this call. I’m ready to go. Kasa was drafted the sixth round by Oakland 2013, and played all 16 games his rookie. The only catch of his career was the final week of that, when he hauled a 9-yard TD pass against, fittingly enough, the Broncos. He missed 2014 after being placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL. Last, the Raiders let him go and he’s been looking for NFL job ever since. To stay tip-top tight-end shape, Kasa worked out just a few blocks away from ‘s practice facility. Still pretty much the same start to day, Kasa cracked. Only now he’s making around $6 per week on the practice squad and will be going with the team to, California, for the big game. He gets Super Bowl tickets, too, even if he won’t be suiting up. It’s a dream come true, for sure, the 25-year-old Kasa said. I ‘t know how to describe it.. It’s just good to be here. I ‘t want to distract from this team at all. They’ve been working hard for a time. To think, he initially missed a call he’s been waiting to receive. While attending the AFC championship game, the phone dropped out of his hand and the screen broke. As he was taking ‘s 20 win over and the Patriots, the team was trying to get touch with him. It wasn’t until the next day, when he picked up a new phone, that he saw the messages. His heart sank. I was out, for sure, Kasa said. But got it all turned around enough time and made it over here. I’m just on to however I can help.
