Is it just me or is Warren Sapp abnormally bitter towards the Oakland Raiders? Dude comes across like the homecoming queen who got her heart broken the same night they placed that tiara on her head. Every chance he gets he’s bashing anything and everything about the franchise.
You hate the Raiders, Warren. We get it! We just don’t get why you keep running your mouth. Maybe he’s mad cause Al Davis never showed him Richard Seymour money. But that would have required Sapp to actually play with pride and become the locker room leader he was supposed to be.
Whatever it is that’s eating Sapp he took another precious moment of his life to take a few shots at the Raiders using Michael Huff as his target.
Let’s get something clear. I’m no fan of Huff Daddy. He’s had his moments that have made me eat some of my own words. Still his time in Oakland – which could be all but over – has been a disappointment. So disappointing that Sapp said it made him nauseous.
Sapp recalls the early days of Huff’s pro career in an interview on a Dallas radio station.
“I went so far with Michael Huff, and you can ask him this, that my last day in Oakland, I waited in the parking lot for Michael Huff. I waited in the parking lot because I wanted to talk to the young man because he made me want to throw up watching him practice. I mean, the scout team would complete ball, after ball, after ball. I’m like, ‘You’re not going to make one play? I mean, you’re not even going to put your hand on it and knock it down?’”
To be fair, Sapp had probably just eaten a plate of food only Adam Richman could digest prior to watching Huff in practice. All that being said I can’t really make much of a defense for Huff. His play has improved over the last two years. Of course he was rumored to be on the way out of town coming out of camp two years ago and had his best season in a contract year this past season. Have fun with that, Jerry Jones.
Huff has plenty of natural ability but has never truly adjusted to the NFL. He doesn’t have a true position, is awful at open field tackling and routinely takes terrible angles. Yep, should be perfect for the Cowboys.
As for Sapp. Whatever! Dude is the biggest Raider hater this side of Mike Shanahan – literally. Funny how a guy arrested for domestic battery thinks the worse sin one can commit is being beaten by the scout team in practice. My guess is it was the smell of stripper snail trails that wafted from Huff’s jock strap that made Sapp want to spew instead of his JaMarcus-esque work ethic.
Stay classy, Warren Sapp.
