I love athletes playing with enthusiasm and confidence.
And that is exactly what we are seeing from the Jacksonville Jaguars. They may be one of the most talkative groups of trash talkers in the NFL. But did Jalen Ramsey take it too far?
Fans gathered the other day in Jacksonville to celebrate the team’s victory over Pittsburgh and advancing to the AFC Championship game. But that’s when maybe the enthusiasm and confidence went too far when Ramsey yelled out that they were going to win the Super Bowl.
Yes, he better think that way. If he doesn’t I wouldn’t want him on my team. But you’re playing the New England Patriots, who thrive of the doubters. They thrive off ‘spy-gate’, ‘deflate-gate’, stories of their dynasty falling apart. Now you add a guarantee on top of it.
Ramsey is one of the best defensive backs in the league and he’s backed up his talk all season but he better back it up one more time or he’ll join Matt Hasselback’s “We want the ball and we’re going to score” as one of the worst guarantees in sports history.
