Yes, we have a Miami story not involving the South Beach NWO. Its being reported this morning by the Sun Sentinel that Pat White could be missing significant time. At the very least he is missing training camp. Why? Reason is rather troubling.
“According to a league source, the Dolphins backup quarterback could miss the entire regular season with a non-football related issue that is described as serious.”
This is surprising because last we heard he was in best shape of his life.
In any case, what does it mean when we hear non-football related issue or personal issue? What comes to mind is the case of Shawn Andrews. Personal issues were a bout with depression. Mix that with a few injuries and it lead to his departure from league. Another case that comes to mind when mentioning “personal reasons” is when Rafer Alston went M.I.A. on the Miami Heat. It ended up that the personal reasons were a family member in trouble and he needed to be by them. Of course there is the infamous Vince Young incident a few years back where we became acquainted with the phrases “personal issues/reasons.” What we could glean from these cases is that personal reasons/issues are hardly good. Stay tuned for more news.
Breaking News: Literally as I was writing this piece reports are flying in that Pat White is indeed coming to practice . So the issues arent as serious as they seemed. Goes to show you, one minute you hear one thing, the next another. Pat White needs to explain what is going on. Will Manso says it best: there is something fishy going on.
I have a theory though, maybe Dolphins are looking to make some headlines over the South Beach NWO so that people remember they exist. What better way than a mysterious training camp story. #shrug
PS, What are the chances this hit might have something to do with craziness? Probably none, just want to show it again.
