ZOMG! Gene Chizik was right! There are Energy Vampires out there, and they really are trying to get you!
Take Nolan Nawrocki, for example. He’s the publisher of the Pro Football Weekly Draft Preview, a respected publication that lands in every NFL front office. It has an extensive on and off-field analysis of each prospect in the draft.
This week’s copy draws blood when it comes to the Cam Newton review.
Under the "Negatives" for Newton, Nawrocki details the on-field shortcomings. It's a lot of the same critiques we're familiar with: one-year producer, limited field vision, spotty accuracy.
But Nawrocki bludgeons Newton when he starts talking about his personality.
"Very disingenuous -- has a fake smile, comes off as very scripted and has a selfish, me-first makeup," writes Nawrocki.
But Nawrocki was just warming up.
He continued, "Always knows where the cameras are and plays to them. Has an enormous ego with a sense of entitlement that continually invites trouble and makes him believe he is above the law -- does not command respect from teammates and will always struggle to win a locker room . . . Lacks accountability, focus and trustworthiness -- is not punctual, seeks shortcuts and sets a bad example. Immature and has had issues with authority. Not dependable."
Nawrocki is either a secret employee of the REC, or he’s an Energy Vampire. Either way, it will be interesting to see how the Never to Yield Foundation handles this obvious smear attempt on teh fambly. Everyone knows that Energy Vampires are immune to boycotts.
