Default What's wrong with confidence?

Why is it a sin to declare your going to win the next game or that your an elite quarterback? Everytime a player guarantee's a victory he gets scolded by the media.. Why? What are you going to say, " I hope we don't lose"? It's one thing to be an asshole about it but it just annoys me. Players are so afraid to say shit in interviews/conferences and usually just say hope for a positive result. I know every team in practices, meetings, etc talk about how they are going to win and that's the objective.

ughh it's a minor thing but it ****ing annoys me.

There is a difference between confidence and lying.

Don't understand these NY quarterbacks thinking they're on elite status.

Shez, and Eli aren't even on Jay Cutler status. I don't give a rats ass if Eli has a ring--so does Trent Dilfer.

I've never seen a guy grilled for guaranteeing a win unless he a.) sucks to begin with or b.) his team loses and THEN he gets grilled.

When did Sanchez ever say he was elite?

If you guarantee a victory and lose, then you look like an idiot. If you say you're elite at your position while you're not that great, then you look delusional. If you say you're elite and you are, then it makes you seem like you're egotistical. Let others declare you as elite.
