I remember watching in equal parts disbelief and shock on Saturday night as Lorenzo Alexander, helmet cleanly stripped off, chased down a play. Mind you, Alexander did not just simply chase down the play, nor did he merely clear the pile. Oh no. Alexander went in for the tackle, head first. Yes, he really wants to make the team. Here’s a fan’s view of the play courtesy of The Brothers, Mottram:
Wow, you know, at some point, doesn’t common sense have to just kick in? Maybe reality settled in when his face got bloodied by cuts, and he lay there after the game with a concussion. Anyone who’s willing to give this type of effort definitely deserves a spot on the team. Or maybe not, for being so stupid.
