I find it ironic how we passed on Haskins, who has made it no secret he now has a chip on his shoulder, for a guy with an even bigger chip.

Does this equate to wins or losses, is the question?

Also interesting to note that both Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady have spoken several times about having a chip on theirs...

Nope, just a convenient narrative for lazy journalists.

So did Matt Leinart and it didn’t exactly drive him on to great success. Any player will trot out the cliche when asked by a reporter, because if they don’t they’ll be accused of not caring and have to put up with the associated bullshit that comes with that.

Josh might not be able to throw the football with that chip being so heavy...

Positive thoughts guys! We have a new signal caller after 7yrs. Lets get behind our team and hope that this dude is the truth!!

Marino had a massive chip on his shoulder. Played with fire and was a flat out a$$hole at times. I hope Rosen learns from this experience and uses it to drive his success.

Marino didn't need to have a chip, he had drive and passion without needing any extra motivation.

This isnt 1983, and that generation of player is rare today.

Different game, different time and different societal norms.

And Steve Smith has no clue whats even going on.

The man has been to all the OTAs despite the rumors. Unfollowing something you ain’t about is the new “**** you” . . . Old man.

Dude absolutely had a chip for being drafted late in the 1st. He has expressed his frustration with his draft status hundred of times in his career....
