Classless Act: Helman Takes Shot at Beasley.
I have been a fan of the Dallas Cowboys for over 40 years. During my lifetime I have seen some piss poor writers come through Dallas. I have bit my tongue many times at the idiotic things I have read, but Helman has no idea what the hell he is talking about.
When I stopped by DC.com Thursday night, I was interested in the practice recap. But, as usual, most of the article was just rehashing what anyone going to the same site (DC.com) already heard when they watched the Tony Romo interview. Then it was a rehash of what Garrett already said. At this point I am thinking: can I get some original content please?
Once I got through the rehashing of what Tyrone Crawford had to say, I saw “Notable Standouts:” I thought wow, finally some relevant original football content. Shucks, it was a couple of paragraphs of nothingness and some props to this Newsome character. Then I saw “Play of the Day:” and Cole Beasley’s name highlighted in blue. Cool I thought! When I read what the Classless Helman had to say, I wanted to reach through my computer screen and strangle his picture!
“Hereâ€™s a telling indicator of how scaled-down practice was on Thursday afternoon: (What the hell is that crap?)
the best candidate for a play of the day occurred during the full-team walkthrough to open the practice. Lined up in the slot, Cole Beasley tore off downfield and snagged a nice catch from Romo about 25 yards downfield. He extended both arms and made a fantastic fingertip snag.”
How scaled down practice was?
Who is this moron? Has this guy ever watched any tape? Is he a frigging Redskins fan? How in the hell does a guy like this even have a job in the world of football? As an editor I wouldn’t publish his piss poor content. As an analyst, it’s obvious to me the guy knows absolutely nothing about evaluating a players skill-set, and as a fan, I think he is a disgrace to the star.
Mr. Helman, before you make yourself look like a total idiot again, here a few facts you should have already known before taking a shot at Cole Beasley!
- He had the highest completion percentage of any receiver on the team.
- He is hands down the best route runner on the team.
- He has hands like glue and almost never drops a pass.
- At one point last year he had 18 first downs on 20 targets.
- He out produced Miles Austin despite only seeing 18% of the snaps.
Sheesh, that was in “real” games: were they scaled down?
I lived in Pennsylvania for years until recently moving back west. The thing I heard most from Eagles and Redskins fans was the one guy they feared the most was that little Beasley guy. They said they were glad our coach was too stupid to play him more.
My advise to Mr. Helman is to learn the fundamentals of football and how to evaluate players before committing such a classless act! Try watching some tape; if you even know what to look for. As a 40+ year fan, I am here to tell you that Beasley is Welker 2.0. I hope you like eggs, because you are about to have them all over your face. Saying Beasley made a play because practice was scaled down is the stupidest thing I ever read at DC.com! Your editor should be fired for even posting that shit!
