    I would never say Jason is a great student of the game but point taken. He is the classic example of a guy who has been in a profession for years, got a huge promotion & it became abundantly clear he was in over his head.

    I hope he gets going alright. To some other team!

    I would argue that.

    Actually, you meant figuratively, in every sense of the word.

    "Literally" means "figuratively" (it can also mean "literally", of course). I don't like it, but it is true.

    Figuratively means metaphorically, and literally describes something that actually happened. If you say that a guitar solo literally blew your head off, your head should not be attached to your body.
    Most of us were taught that figuratively means something other than literal, and that literally means "actually" or "exactly." Somewhere along the line, literally began to be used as, well, figuratively, like this:
    
    But they're also going to create literally a tidal wave of data. (Washington Post)

    Sean Lee is talking figuratively since he literally has never done what he said.

    It looks like the last full season Sean Lee played was 2007 at Penn State.

    Exactly............the word on him coming out at Penn State was that he was a great player, but soft as charmin.

    I heard some analyst say that he would have been a top 10 pick if he was not hurt so much............that is why he was available in the 2nd round, strictly because of injury flag.

    They seem to like reaching in the draft for those type of players. In Sean's case he just keeps getting hurt every year. It's too bad. He is one of the very few players on this team with leadership skills.

    Man, that is such poor tackling form right there.............not dogging Lee, just saying that you are told from Jr. High on up that you "see what you hit".

    Being basically on all fours with your head sticking out like that is just asking for a neck injury. He is dam lucky his spinal cord did not get compressed right there. Dude is going to end up paralyzed if he keeps trying to make tackles like this.
