Willie McGinest: Froot Loop

It seems you can’t go any more than a few weeks than having a player complain about his jersey number. The latest is Willie McGinest, who is a little upset that Patriots management allowed Junior Seau to wear his old No. 55 in New England. McGinest was upset that Seau and coach Bill Belicheck called and asked permission to wear the number. McGinest felt that the Patriots front office should have refused from the get-go and not let it get to that point.

McGinest needs to realize that he was a good player on a couple of championship teams. It's not like when Jerry Rice strong-armed Pro Football Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent to pull his No. 80 out of the rafters. (Even though Rice would not take No. 80 off Denver's Rod Smith the following year.)

Seau is destined for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. McGinest will be remembered as the Wilber Marshall of the Patriots.

McGinest said that it would have been awkward to turn down Seau on his request. Yeah, you want to know why? McGinest started wearing the No. 55 at USC in honor of Seau who had previously worn the number for the Trojans.

"He's the reason why I was wearing the number. He made it what it is today, and he passed it down to me. He had his legacy with it where he was, and I created mine where I was," McGinest said.

So McGinest wore the number to honor Seau and now, not only is he not honored, but he’s offended that Seau wants to wear the No. 55? The number Seau wore in the first place? Ah hell, have fun in Cleveland, idiot.

Story link. And the previous Froot Loop.

Yeah Seau will be there for a cup of coffee and his stay will be over and forgotten, unless of course he drop kicks a field goal. Hey wait a second, did THN actually write something negative about a USC alum. Wow, looks like NFL Adam is all growed up!
