Just kidding.

Nobody’s ever accused Malcolm Mitchell of being tight-lipped.  Turns out he can be pretty funny, too.

Yet several returning players have commented this month that complacency and entitlement may have accompanied the undeniable ability of last season’s defenders. The most notable to speak out was junior receiver Malcolm Mitchell, who was asked if this year’s veteran offense could experience a similar issue.

“I don’t think we’re in the same situation that we were in last year,” Mitchell said. “You had a bunch of seniors and a bunch of people who were worried about where they were going. Granted, we do have offensive linemen who might be in that place, but, as we know, offensive linemen won’t get as much attention as our defensive players did last year.

“I don’t think we’ll have that problem.”

Offensive linemen?  Georgia’s offensive linemen?  Sure, Malcolm.

    If you’re worried about your draft status then PLAY GREAT on every play and you won’t have to worry about it.

    Aaaah, the “we’re not entitled like last year” quote. Wouldn’t be August without it!

      Exactly

    • Thank goodness we got rid of all of those entitled, NFL rookies, amirite?

        In his defense.. it was damn obvious that Cornwash and Jenkins both felt entitled.

          Corny was a square peg in a round hole. He just didn’t fit our defense. He’ll be a better pro than he was in college

          And I might get shelled here, but in Corny & Jenkins’ defense, I can understand preserving yourself for the next level. Most of these guys have 5-10 years max to make the money they’ll need for the next 50. If no other player’s competing against you, and if you feel like you’ve got a good shot at 1st-round money, the incentives to go hard every play aren’t there. Even if you have a mediocre season, you can impress at pro day–it’s a less risky strategy than going into the draft with a ligament tear. I’m sure plenty of non-agents whisper that in players’ ears all year long. Heck, even Saban can’t keep ‘em around for a 4th year.

          In short, I’m glad to see we’ve got competition at key positions.

    Shawn Williams is unimpressed by MM and his ‘comedy’…

    Anyone else see that Marlon Brown had a good game last night.
