    Did I just read "he's black" as an excuse for his difficulties? LOL.

    This article seemed to highlight Shermans mistake on drafting him. More of a "Blame Sherman, not Carroll" article.

    And I wasn't going to mention this all week, but the play he made where the interception was made by Manuel...yeah, that sure was pass interference.

    and go **** yourself, zero. :)

    OMFG are you KIDDING ME... STFU, you have angered me with this BS. What a joke. Yeah, "I'm an African American and I have a hard time adjusting to a football field because of it's latitude and longitude. And there are just too many nice people who's world revolve around the team I play for up here... I don't know what to do with myself".

    You are a complete MORON.

    After watching the play a few more times, it looks like Carroll's arm made contact with Bradfords arm at the same time the ball did and that Carroll swatted his arm south which made the ball bounce out.


    and I will!!! for the sixth time today...

    You gotta be kidding me. First of all until you've been black in a nearly all white area you shouldn't comment. Secondly the play was made by Carrol. The ball fell right into Manuel's hands with nobody around. Manuel hasn't made a play all season yet. He has definately been our weakest link.

    There are plenty of young black players who do fine in Green Bay. I was surprised to see the writer haul that one out as a reason for Carroll's struggles.

    But he played very well against the Lions, and I don't think there was pass intereference on that interception. To me, it looked like he hit Bradford at the same moment the ball arrived. You can't play it any better than that. Hopefully Carroll can string several good performances together now, instead of the usual up-down thing.

    I didn't tell you to shut up. I said you shouldn't comment on something you know nothing about. Is anyone going to say it is easy for a 20 year old innercity african american man to move to Green Bay without making a serious adjustment. Then on top of that imagine trying to fit in and being booed constantly by an ignorant mostly white crowd.

    And yea I think Ryan knows my rant was aimed at him too. I hit your "quote" button before reading his.

    1. I dont know about culture shock and adapting? Whatever you say, depack. I wasn't aware you had the inside scoop on what I know, and what I don't know (insert your joke there, i beg you).
    2. yet ur an expert?
    3. Why are they ignorant for booing him? Since when is wanting good play by a #1 draft pick CB, and then being disappointed by his 'bustness' ignorant?

    And ok, ill even play devils advocate. It mighta been harder on him, due to his immaturity, but ...3 years. Lets get it goin, AC.

    And yes, his 'big play' was a pass interference. If they stop penalizing P.I. then AC will be a stud, until then, we can only hope they continue to turn a blind eye.

    RANT OVER! WHOOOOO! :takes off shirt and slams it on the ground: WHOOO!!

    ok, if Pass Interfering while luckilly not getting the flag is "gettin it goin" then...yikes.

    my standard for "gettin it goin" is higher, I believe. AC frustrates me cuz hes such a gifted player yet is immature and unteachable apparently. Makes me sad, even more sad cuz he is on my green bay packers!

    Carroll did not committ pass interference on the play. Atleast not by the definition of pass interference.

    From what I read http://www.nfl.com/fans/rules/passinterference and seen on the clip. Carroll made a good play, legally.

    I would have been more pleased if he would have hussled his *** after Manuel in case he fumbled or something, but hey, gotta take baby steps right?

    I just watched it again, and it sure was P.I.

    We have the internet! Lets just look, go to zeros highlights.

    It was close, but as the nfl rules say:

    (c) Grabbing a receiver’s arm(s) in such a manner that restricts his opportunity to catch a pass.

    (d) Extending an arm across the body of a receiver thus restricting his ability to catch a pass, regardless of whether the defender is playing the ball.
    --------------------
    But hey, im glad we got away with one. we need any break we get, but I dont see any reason that this is a good thing(as far as his progression as a player).

    I had to watch it at 1/8 speed to accurately make my decision. The clip I presented does not offer that.

    Watch it again, with your bi focals aimed accordingly.

    He is biased. Even if the NFL said it was a clean play, he'd dispute it because it was #28 and anyone who says its a legit play he will label a Ahmad Carroll lover. Quite sad, but atleast predictable.

    where...did the namecalling come from?

    Sad?

    predictable?

    I..never used "Ahmad Carroll Lover" in this thread. lay off the crack.

    When play by play was being done, I was hyped up. I was excited to hear he did something. Then I seen the footage of it, and it was P.I.

    But yeah, ur right, the officials never make mistakes. :roll:

    effective immediately though.

    This is amazing. A Packer player makes a good play and "fans" have to discredit it. With fans like that, who needs hecklers?

    if by 'good' you mean illegal, then sure. I wish i didnt see the footage, so I could have the (misguided) notion that AC did great and could be progressing.

    and yeah, question my fanhood, zero. nice.

    grow up, zero. seriously. grow the **** up.

    I have always supported AC becuase he was a kid and did come in early.

    I like his talent and like all of you am frustrated becuase of what he could be with that talent. However.... And this is a big HOWEVER....

    Is the author saying that he would be acting different and more mature if he was playing for Atlanta? Or, I hope not, but is the writer saying his behavour is acceptable and the norm in Atlanta becuase he is black and Atlanta has a large black population?

    I am confused.

    The author is tad off base in this article. He's giving Ahmad a cushion he doesn't deserve. Yes, he was drafted too early, but he is in his third year now. He shouldn't be getting fooled so badly on pump fakes like he did against the Saints. He's improving, but its terribly slow.

    Quit with the namecalling.

    White, black, purple, green I don't care what color you are, don't pull the race card for your poor performance, that's bull. We used to go into heavy Hmong, Latino and African American areas to play soccer in HS and college. I still knew how to play the game when I was in someone else's house, that's not an excuse especially on your home field. Grow up and perform, or get cut or traded etc... quit with race crap.
