No draft party for Tyrann Mathieu after all

NFL

Former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu is rethinking his “first round draft party”.

Earlier Wednesday, someone promoting the 2013 NFL Draft Party featuring first round draft pick Tyrann Mathieu hit the web, and by mid-afternoon, the “Honey Badger” was backpedaling from that party like a good cornerback should.

He later tweeted out a response that said he was not associated with the party.  But the tweet came from his official Twitter account.

“No, it’s crazy. I don’t understand it. It was a miscommunication, that’s all. … I never signed off on the party,” Mathieu said to reporters at the NFL Draft party on Wednesday night. “I expect to go in the first round, yes I do. I think I’m a first round talent. But I think l’ll fall to the second.”

He has not shown up in any of the draft experts mock drafts as a first-round talent, and is expected to be a second or third rounder.

I had a(the) number one draft choice...John Matuzak...University of Tampa..who I recruited....coached...advised and had a great relationship with. But in all my blogging and books I have never tried to say who Dallas should pick...Im smart enough to know what goes into it...I have been all over the war room..with Larry Lacewell who made it very special...he had more info on players than the CIA had on terrorists. Then I see a few idiots..the same ones that try to cut me down...telling Jerry how he screws up....these are the same idiots that said Jerry had nothing to do with the first drafts...that Jimmy did it all. This shows their stupidity...Jerry had everything to do with it all...always has..always will. He learned to cut deals making a fortune on gas and oil deals....Jimmy never negoiated anything..even getting a job...Jerry...Lacewell...Switzer got him his jobs, and without Jerry fell flat on his face at Miami..with great talent. I am amazed at how well these guys...that couldn't buy a cup of coffee..can spend his millions on a POS like Mathieu..or some gangster they know nothing about. I give credit to Gina Genochio who makes more sense than any of these idiots..she studies it to no end..and makes some good points. Oh I forgot  Jimmy did negotiate a deal...to advertise extends....on FoxNews...he needed some attention I guess..not money..I was right to nickname him Dumbo years ago. Who would advertise extends..lmao.

HE estimates he'd failed 10 drug tests? Amazed anyone would give him a chance. He was even arrested AFTER leaving LSU along with 3 other former LSU football players, including the idiot Jordan Jefferson who showed his ego was so big he spent the night before the game that mattered game partying well into the night at Harrah's Casino. (Yes, we still want to know why Miles refused to play Lee) so Tyrann proved he learned NOTHING after being cut from the team except that he has the same ego as Jefferson. Personally, I believe alcohol is much worse than pot because it kills so many people each year and at age 59, I've don't know anyone who has died from driving after smoking a joint and the arrests made after he was off the team was at his private residence and in other cases, I'd call BS on anyone telling me what I can or can't do in my own home with no children present or anyone else that would be hurt by my behavior. (That slippery slope too many don't understand is part of the problem) However, the point in Tyrann's case is he repeatedly refused to follow the rules and it doesn't matter what anyone thinks of the rules. You obey them or suffer the consequences and he was given more chances than he should have been and since he continued his behavior which is also illegal in the NFL, his ego is larger than his pot habit which is sad because he smoked away a great spot on the LSU team as well as a chance in the NFL. If he gets drafted, I wonder how many tests he'll be allowed to fail before the NFL realizes he hasn't changed. Even if by their own rules,. more than once is okay, Tyrann's past failures should be him on the fast list to being cut, IF he gets a chance to play.

why support that dope head at all. I wouldn't want my NFL team to sign that drug addict and infest my team.

Ah heck, he should have had the party anyway.  Play some Dee Lite and just have fun.  Let the neck-beards have a fit on twitter all they want.  Does what they say really matter anyway?

The true story: you were going to have a party and then you got called out for a being an idiot because partying is exactly what got you cut from LSU, so now you're trying to lie (quite poorly) and say that someone else sent out fliers, rented space and hired entertainment for your party. Smooth Badger, no one suspects anything. If you had any shot at getting drafted in the first 100 picks you probably just blew it.

 Well, regardless of what Jerry does or does not do, one thing is certain:

 

JERRY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR 1 PLAYOFF WIN IN 17 YEARS!

 The only one not getting it is you! Jerry Jones could not evaluate an orange much less football players in NFL! Wise up Jones has no capability of drafting players and your wrong about Jimmy Johnson also,Johnson has always been an astute evaluator of talent,in college as well as pro's.

Jones needs to hire at least someone that has experience at evaluating talent because he has no clue.

Jones thinks because he played for Razorbacks in 1960's qualifies him to be an evaluator,he has failed miserably and what's sad is he will not admit it.

Cowboys will never win with Jones in position he is in as GM,book it!

In case you didn't know let me enlighten you about Switzer! He was fired at OU for devious recruiting practices,Switzer was merely a puppet forJones and took over Johnsons Championship teams and won Super Bowl.

A dead man could have coached those teams to Championships,unlimited signings also,no longer can you do that in NFL,now you have to be able to evaluate players and there lies the problem,Jones does not know how.
