Eight-Figure Stupidity

October 3rd, 2010

tanard jacksonThere are few words in Joe’s vocabulary that he can use in polite company that properly describe the stupidity displayed by Bucs safety Tanard Jackson.

Because he couldn’t put the bowl down (allegedly), he cost himself untold amount of cash as he was due to be a free agent.

Well, Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports thinks he has a figure. Cole believes Jackson’s habits likely meant losing out on some $10 million.

But the real disaster in the Jackson story is that he has probably cost himself any chance of ever getting a really lucrative contract. Jackson, who was in the fourth and final year of his contract, will now have to wait until 2012 to become a free agent. Worse, Jackson will probably need two years to regain any confidence from another team, even though he’s really talented. Throw in that safety is generally a low-priority position and it’s fair to say that Jackson threw away anywhere from $10 million to $15 million in possible earnings.

Joe just hopes whatever Jackson was smoking (allegedly) was some really good s(p)it to be worth eight figures and being set for the rest of your life.

Hope it was worth it, Tanard!

    Unforgivable and inexcusable stupidity!! Absolutely right Joe! What could this idiot possibly say? He let his team down- again, and threw away 10 million dollars!! How could anyone explain that! His only excuse is that he is another of the “Gruden defectives”! I hope he never plays on this team again- that level of stupidity might be contagious!!

    He’s not dumb, he’s addicted. No rational human being would do something so self-destructive.

    You’ve any street cred you may think you had, Joe.

    I meant to say you “ruined” your street cred, Joe. Dropped a word there. Carry on.

    Having had a 21 year old in my own home, there are too many reasons why I have nothing to say. This is nothing new in this society. (and it was NOT my kid or I wouldn’t have dealt with these issues before)

    Whether or not pot is addictive is debatable in my opinion but it does make you stupid.
