Chris Perry getting up slowly...

    According to his comments in a chat on ESPN, Chris Perry has said that his getting up slowly after each play and acting all gimpy was an act to mess with the defense.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I just found it pathetic then, and worse now that I know that it was just a ploy.

    I still respect the kid and what he's gone through and overcome, but good lord, leave the acting to Hollywood. I've got far more respect for a player who jumps up after a tough hit, then one who has to play up the drama.

    I am not surprised, he did the same thing in the Oregon game. So when it came time for our game I was used to it

    That does not suprise me one bit, I have always thought that he was a drama queen. What a puss, one day it will be the boy who cried wolf. He'll actually be hurt, but most will think he's faking it.

    Jim Brown used to do the same thing when he played for the Browns...it was to keep the defense guessing whether or not you were really injured.

    Didn't Crybaby Clarett do the same thing?

    I think there were definitely moments when he did, but at least there was a bona fide injury to go along with the antics. More importantly, it wasn't a non-stop deal. Perry did it every single play it seemed. In our game, in a few others. Clarett was animated in all phases, Perry just seems to be an actor. A cheesy actor.

    But no question I have a double standard. Were I a Michigan fan, I'd probably convince myself that it's not as obnoxious as it is.

    But Clarett, Brown, Perry -- I just think it's lame. But that's me.

    Jim Brown used to do it too, but, ah, no point in discussing that guy. :P
