Clayton Reminds Us His “Check Is In The Bank”

October 12th, 2009

Joe suspects Michael Clayton has direct deposit. He wouldn’t want to risk dropping his weekly paycheck with all those zeros.

Clayton, in an effort to explain his attitude toward his many critics, reminded Bucs nation that his $10 million of guaranteed money is safe and secure.  

When asked his reaction to critical fans who point to the team’s decision to re-sign him to a five-year, $26 million contract, Clayton accepted there would be some. But he doesn’t agree with them.

“I ain’t worried about that,” he said. “People who say stuff, they’re not out there on the field. Nobody who writes (stuff) or says (stuff) can say anything about a player because they’re not on the field. It’s real serious out there. That’s why I don’t pay any attention to that stuff because the mentality is that you make up for it and you come back and catch the next one. I mean, regardless of what they say, the check is in the bank. That’s not changing. It’s about this team right now. Nothing can break that or make me feel bad or worry because somebody’s talking about me in the paper. We just have to keep our heads.”

Forgetting for a moment about Clayton all but putting the dirt on his Buccaneers grave with this comment and his performances, Joe finds it absolutely hilarious that Clayton has the genitalia to say nobody is going to “make me feel bad.”

This is the same guy who said 100 different ways that Chucky made him feel bad, broke his confidence, etc.

Before this quote, about 72 percent of readers of were in favor of cutting Clayton today.

Joe suspects that number would be much higher if there was a new vote.

    Tim Ryan brought this up on Johnson’s first deep pass of the game, what I consider Clayton’s first drop, “It was just off his fingertips, you would like to see him lay out and at least get 2 hands on the ball instead of trying to make the highlight catch”.

    I don’t see any urgency out of the starting receivers, Clayton drops too many balls, Bryant on the one deep pass he caught yesterday looked like a 75 year old man with his pants down trying to get away from nurses, then eventually just slumped over a guy. I mean I understand Bryant isn’t making much an it’s hard to take care of your family, but run around and make some plays out there.

    We might as well start running some plays with Donald Penn split out, not only did he make a tough catch (Any catch is tough when the ball is batted to you unexpectedly), he then rumbled over a guy an tried to hurdle another.
