This is impossible. You cannot be weak to the point where your lack of strength causes an at times weakness when you are getting to the ball carrier as many times as Ryan Shazier does. How can most not see this? How does Ryan Shazier do what he does, yet leaves this impression that he has this specific weakness? A weakness that continues to be harped on like a broken record, over and over and over? Is he like some kind of magician who fools the public into seeing something that really isn’t there? Is he a hypnotist who can control the minds of others? What is he?
I think I have the answer. It could only be that Ryan Shazier is a Super Hero. A Super Hero disguised as a mild-mannered, weak, at times liability, who will be over powered at getting to the ball carrier. It has to be! The numbers he is putting up (in regards to getting to the ball carrier), show that he is the one who is over powering the opponents blockers. And it’s kind of embarrassing what he is doing to them. He is doing it without having to over-strength them. How does he do this?
It is becoming obvious to me that he can do this because he has this Super Hero ability to fool everyone into focusing on a weakness, that really isn't weakening him. On the other hand, it seems to be weakening his opponents.
My guess is, this going to happen in the NFL as well. Many teams and professional scouts had him not even as a top 25 talent. And they base this all on this weakness that they see, yet never seems to show up on the field. And I think the magnitude of this illusion will increase to an even higher level in the NFL, a place where there they have this caveat they use all the time that goes something like, it’s different in the NFL. He won’t be able to do those things there.” And all I can say is, “cool”.
I remember when I was kid growing up in the 70’s the thing to be was “cool”. The number one television show in America was about a guy who was the epitome of cool. A guy who initially was a secondary character on the show, but fast became the shows lead. This character was one Arthur Fonzarelli. Aka the “Fonz”, and the television show was called “Happy Days”. Every kid (young boy/teenager), that I knew wanted to be cool.
Today, I want to be this thing that the so-called experts call as Ryan Shazier’s weakness,, “Over powered at the point at times.” Man how “cool” would that be? Ryan Shazier is a new kind of Super Hero. A Super Hero who is seen as small and weak yet is a dominating force on a football field. One that has no problem at all getting to the ball carrier. And one who does so at a elite level, yet somewhat over-looked and not seen for what he actually is. But every Super Hero has to have a disguise. Love it !!
I may be changing my username here. Something like, “Over powered at the point at times.” Hmmmmm?
