San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te’o was asked if he had guys on the team giving him crap for his whole ‘catfish’ incident. Here was his response:
“No, lucky for me I’m surrounded by guys in San Diego who really care about football and really care about winning, and they really care about people,” said Te’o, who’s in Aurora, Ohio, for this week’s NFL Rookie Symposium. “And for me as a rookie, I just keep my head down and keep working and keep my head in the playbook, so I don’t give them a reason to yell at me or give them a reason to not like me.
“For me, I’m just keeping my head down, do my responsibilities and make sure that I’m working to be the best linebacker I can be.” – NFL.com
I am pretty sure he has gotten more crap from fans and media than his teammates on the roster. I am sure someone will give him a little crap soon though, it is just the elephant in the room,
I am just happy that all the talk about it is starting to dwindle down. We don’t need to hear about that. Sadly, the offseason is too long and someone had to bring it back up all over again.
