Those are some very impressive stats.
and his stats are in line w/ most of the top CBs in this draft
The stats I highlighted are better than most of the of the top CBs in this draft.
sorry, I meant his college stats, that 43" inch, 10'11" broad-jump are crazy
6.65 3-cone, 3rd best
43" vert, tops
10'11" broad-jump, 1st
1.46 10-yard dash, tied 3rd
2.51 20yard dash, 2nd
4.4 40, 4th
From NFL Draft Scout:
damn, we might have to take him in the 3rd
if we want him
Samson Satele? Usama? hmm
Thats better than OSAMA Bin Young
Feel bad for the guy because of the comments hes getting here about his name...
Fans from other teams called Romo, Homo and thought it was the wittiest things.
Get over it.
You could see the Osama jokes coming a mile away from those who still laugh when they pass wind.
At least his name isn't B. Hussein Obama.
Sometimes I kill myself.
Seriously, get over it. It's a joke. It's not racism (as Hypnotoad had implied before his edit). There are a lot worse things in the world than jokes that you don't find humorous.
I might find it humorous if it weren't something an eight year old could come up with at a moment's notice.
To me, some things an 8 year old could come up with are funny. Some aren't. It's humor -- not a socio-economic policy discussion.
But obviously, the racism angle can't be ignored. It's not a big deal, but I can see someone not knowing a thing about this young man and holding his name against him.
I'd be more worried about the idiot that actually held such a belief than the effect he would have on society.
You won't be laughing when he becomes your next president.
I edited my post because I didn't want people to get aggressive. This type of debate brings up alot of emotion, and I don't want to go there. But yes, calling someone a terrorist because of their name is racist. Some posts are funny, about the ministry of misinformation and the goat---great stuff had me rofloling.
I think the connection was made because his name closely resembles a (the most) famous terrorist, not because of race. I seriously cannot distinguish how you would think his post is racist and the goat/minister of defense post is not.
You do have a point.
You can replace the name in that goat/minister post with anyones name and it will still be funny. Young wasnt being attacked, noone was called a terrorist because of their name. Posts like "Usama? great, now were gonna have a terrorist playing cornerback" or "dude needs to change his name." are offensive. I really don't want to debate this more.
Congrats, you win.
