Bears guard Kyle Long has spent a lot of time in the operating room over the last couple of years, but he’s feeling optimistic about his health heading into the 2018 season.
As more players have mastered the Eurostep, a growing subset has also starting marking successful Eurosteps with an exaggerated, start-and-stop shimmy:
Boogie down, big fella. When a center pulls a Eurostep, he can do whatever the hell he wants.
Russell Westbrook is probably the league’s preeminent Eurostep mime. He’ll bust out two or three in a row, even during live play. He spasm-dances his way back on defense.
You’ve almost certainly seen this running, right-handed beauty by now. We all love Kuzma’s audacious 3s, and the way Lakers fans sing “KUUUUUZZZZ” when they see him rising. Everyone shoots 3s now. There are maybe a half-dozen guys with a polished skyhook. That thing is magic.
Quarterback Johnny Manziel, a failed first-round pick of the Browns in 2014, is now blaming the Browns for not realizing that they were drafting a guy who prefers to wing it.
“If Cleveland did any of their homework they would have known I wasn’t a guy who came in every day and watched film,” Manziel said in a visit to The Dan Patrick Show. “I wasn’t a guy who really knew the X’s and O’s of football.”
He’s right, but at the time the Browns supposedly should have been doing their homework, Manziel was doing everything he could to create the impression that he was fully committed to football. Manziel was so focused on football that a decision to visit the Nike factory in Oregon in February 2014 actually made waves.
So it’s now Cleveland’s fault for not realizing he was pretending to be something he isn’t?
