"That moron's motor is slower than mine. He is retarded"

Retardation also carries an IQ range of <20 to 70.

She walked off mumbling something about not knowing why she tries. lol
Professional athletes are paid a lot of money for more than just what they do on the field, and should try a little harder to stay out of internet spats with fans. So I'm not making an excuse for him... That being said, people call each other "retard" every day, and it has nothing to do with people who are actually mentally retarded. It's understood (or it SHOULD be understood) that it's an expression used to insult someone who either says or does something dumb.


But, naturally, people have to literalize everything. Retard is a WORD, people! It has different meanings. It doesn't represent just one type of person, or even always a person, at all. As you pointed out.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

When I was younger and someone did something funny we would say that dude is retarded and it was more of a compliment than an insult.

Re: Saints claim Janoris Jenkins

Any news on Jack Rabbit since the signing?

He must be "icing up" ...

Maybe the goal is to get him @ 100 % prior to the 1st playoff game.

Re: Saints claim Janoris Jenkins

Here I'll translate for Coach.

"I'm not happy at the #2 CB spot opposite Lattimore. Saints are ALL IN on winning NOW. We claimed Janoris to help us defend better, get off the field on 3rd down and make plays without creating penalties" .

If any of those reporters think JJ was brought in for "added depth" is kidding themselves. I won't rule him out making his Saints debut vs Carolina in 2 weeks.

Can't wait.

Re: Saints claim Janoris Jenkins

So, is he in the city?
Is he at the practice facility?
What's the extent of his injury?

I mean, Apple has been pretty awful since the game against Chicago. Imagine having an above average corner opposite Marshon, this could really help in the playoffs.

Re: Saints claim Janoris Jenkins

Apple makes the entire defense look worse than it actually is. Lattimore and the safeties are required to do a little bit extra in order to compensate for just how bad Apple is. I think this will help Marcus Williams most of all. I think his coverage will have more flexibility added to them, which will let him break up passes better. I think he often ends up locked into certain approaches because of how bad Apple is. Having a better CB2 will allow him to make decisions quicker and as a result get to where he needs to be.
