Derrick Brooks accomplished a lot as a NFL Linebacker with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Before that, he was quite the acclaimed college football player with the Florida State Seminoles. As a broadcaster though, I am anything but impressed. Whenever I hear that stupid “adversity” cliche perpetrated by coaches and athletes, my eyes roll. If you see my eyes roll from that…good, you should see that I am disgusted.
Get better at talking! Do a better job with the thinking and understanding stuff.
Journalists and media people say that “adversity” crap all the time too. So they are no better.
Derrick Brooks isn’t the only person to do this, it’s just in this specific instance, he’s the most egregious.Follow paulmbanks
