Default Fairley doesn't want to play in the cold

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...t-in-the-cold/

In the pre-draft poking and prodding, the things an incoming rookie says can have as much impact on his eventual placement — and payday — as the things he does.

In declaring his intention to forgo his final year of eligibility at Auburn and head to the NFL, Fairley made an observation about his first NFL destination that some teams could view as a red flag.

Asked where he wants to play at the next level, Fairley said (via Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com), “It doesn’t matter as long as it’s not cold.”

Um. Yeah.

Maybe he really didn’t mean it. Then again, maybe he did. Either way, the remark will surely be used by any interested team in assessing whether Fairley “gets it” and/or whether he’ll bring a sense of entitlement to the NFL.

Sounds like a kid that wants to make it perfectly clear...I want to go to Carolina (#1)!

Because, Denver, Buffalo and Cinncinatti all get cold. The Cards pick at #5....and he would be giving up alot of doe rey me waiting until then.

You know...what we don't need is a "Head-case" on our hands.

It's because the cold hurts his fists more when punching a defensless player. Makes sense.

Are we not allowed to over react or do you just want to be right?

It is hard to watch a person with such talent act like he has some entitlement despite his negative rep and no nfl expierance. It is hard for me and probably others to see such a Talent be wasted.

Especially when he gets traded to a good team and makes it to the nfccg.

Is that a cuter reference? If so that was not what I was getting at. I was thinking more on the line of players who only try on contract years, Haynesworth. Or players that can't handle they are no longer the best players on the field, have no example without talking out my ass but they are out there lol.

It gets cold in Carolina, trust me.
I was in Charlotte around mid-December and they had daytime
temperatures of 21*
It really doesn't matter what he says. He'll be playing in cold weather one way or another...

Hmmmmm. It was 26 degrees when I was driving to the office this morning. And I've still got ice in my driveway.

He better hope Arizona trades up.

I'm about to make one. He's either a diva or really stupid for making that comment. Neither one is a good thing at #2 overall.

I wish Suh had just taken kindergarten twice, or something.

What a p***Y! That said, I still want him wrecking havoc on defense. They can just give him his own personal heater for the sidelines....

he is the 2nd coming of Albert Heynsworth.....so that becomes the question are you ready to deal with the head stomping and not caring for most plays in balance with his contract year in tenesse which was one of the most dominate years I have seen by a DL in my lifetime......
and I urge you don't look at the numbers go get some tape he was double and triple teamed every damn play he was a force of nature

Hope he was joking if not I would like us to stay far away from this kid as possible.

Patrick Peterson or trade down if the kid wasn't joking.

Because he's a tool. I've been on a crusade against this kid since talk of the Broncos drafting him started.

He's destined to blow up, imo. Just exhibits all the traits of a douche bag DT who's going to be a lazy unproductive head case in anything that isn't a contract year.
