Are you foolish? Have you questioned Jared Gaither‘s motivation yet? The locals are restless and have questioned the man that is nicknamed “The Big Lazy.”

“It would be foolish to question any of my motivation,” Gaither said, via Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune. “I wouldn’t even pay any of those questions any attention. I wouldn’t even waste my time on answering.”

UT San Diego columnist, Kevin Acee, went onto a local radio station and expressed his frustration on the situation.

“I’m not saying that the team is saying he should be back right now, but they’re saying he should be back right now”

The guys over at Bolts From the Blue took some good notes on that interview, so go check it out.

In Baltimore, Gatiher struggled through a foot injury in 2010 and Coach John Harbaugh felt that he overplayed the injury. He wouldn’t be doing something like that again, would he?

When someone has a history of overplaying an injury, then people will act ‘foolish’ and start to question their motivation when the occurrence seems to replay itself.

Am I foolish? YES!

Maybe we should ask an expert on the situation:

.@deseanjackson10 since you are an expert, do you think @jaredgaither_78 is motivated to play right now?

I am still waiting for that response, but unmotivated people “wouldn’t even pay any of those questions any attention.”
