    He only needs 45 yards to eclipse Michael “Crack Pipe” Irvin as the 2nd all-time leader in playoff receiving yardage. Jerry Rice is #1. With any luck, he’ll have the game of his career in the Super Bowl against the Rams, but I assume they’ll scheme to stop him.

    One thing many people forget is that once you make it on the highest level, you have to do what the masters want you to whether you like it or not. If you don't obey, Edelman would be out of the league in a NY Second. All I'm saying is
    many of these guys do these things out of fear of losing their career. This is why I prefer college sports. Your not a rich spoiled brat who has to take orders to stay on the team.

    I get that. But I'm sick of it and would actually like some rebels to rock the boat. That and Edelman is the only Jew in The NFL so he's the defacto NFL Rabbi.

    Yeah I wish more had courage. I think they are going after Meyers Leonard still because he refused to take a knee during the national anthem being played over and over. I admire his courage then but he seems to be in
    a situation where he is being punished into submission. It is sad that more athletes don't have the courage to stand up for what it right.

    Again I go back to pro tennis player Djokovic, He said he would never take the vac. or let his family take it. I can only think of one other athlete and he is a sprinter that said the same thing. The powers that be have everyone
    on the end of their puppet strings and these masters control everything that is said by the elite whether in politics, sports, music or movies. This is the new U.S.S.A.

    Remaining silent costs him nothing. He went out of his way to do this. It has nothing to do with his sport so why is he sticking his big nose in it?

    Yeah but he is 1/8th Jewish and was raised Catholic and never celebrated any Jewish holidays as far as I know. Now he is Rabbi Edelman, of course Elizabeth Warren is 1/ 500th Native American and she was Native American...

    Myers Leonard is pretty based. The term “gamer words” exists for a reason. Must be something about being in the intense heat of the moment that brings the honest racism out of everyone. Note that I’m saying that this is just natural and not passing any negative judgement.

    Not really. All he had to do is remain silent and enjoy this off season. No one is telling him to get on his faux megaphone.
