Raheem Unfazed By “Clowns”November 18th, 2011
On Wednesday, Joe brought word that former NFL personnel executive turned NFL.com writer and NFL Network talking head Mike Lombardi skewered the Bucs and Raheem Morris on the league website.
Per St. Pete Times scribe Rick Stroud, Raheem indirectly fired a shot back at Lombardi this afternoon before media at One Buc Palace.
Raheem explains that ignorant clowns don’t upset him.
“Here’s the deal,” Morris said. “When we were young kids, right? I went to school, I was 6 years old, 7 years old. And this guy saw my grandmother and said my grandmother ran like a bulldog. And I beat the heck out of him. I beat the heck out of him. I went home and my mom was so disappointed that I beat the heck out of him. She said, “Don’t worry. It doesn’t matter what people say about you. It doesn’t matter what people say about your family.’ So I learned that lesson a long time ago not to get upset with clowns that don’t really know what they’re talking about that have something to say. So we’ve moved on. I learned that lesson. I don’t have to react to that kind of stuff.”
Joe finds this awfully amusing.
