The Miami Dolphins selected linebacker Channing Crowder in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft.
Too bad Channing partied the weekend of the ’05 Draft as if he was going to be a top first round draft pick where he spent thousands of dollars and then was selected in the 3rd round. The best part is, he blames MEL KIPER JR.
“Yeah I watch it and all,” Crowder said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “Mel Kiper and all, he messed me over, he lied to me, told me I was top-20 had me go out and spend X amount of dollars and then owe the bank stuff. So I don’t know the guys. They’re guessing just like we guess — I can guess who the Dolphins are going to take too. But I look at it a little bit and hear the ‘experts,’ I guess they call them, to see what they say.”
Here is exactly what Kiper said back in ’05 in regards to Crowder’s draft stock.
“I previously projected the Colts to take Florida middle linebacker Channing Crowder [in the first round], but his stock is quickly falling into the third-round area thanks to injury/durability concerns,”
By the way…this isn’t the first time Crowder has said something so ridiculous, I’m beginning to think this guy is an absolute moron, besides from being a terrible football player.
Crowder was critical of officials after a game vs the Baltimore Ravens last November, take a look:
“They didn’t see Chad Henne get hit twice when he slid. Yeah, a little Stevie Wonder and Anne Frank,” Crowder said via the AP.
Crowder was asked what he meant when he said Anne Frank, he replied.
“Who was that? Is that the blind girl? Helen Keller . . . I don’t know who the f— Anne Frank is. I’m mad right now. F— it. I’m not as swift as I usually am.”
I think Ravens receiver Derrick Mason said it best, “[Crowder] is washed up and he’s young. He might as well retire.”
WAIT, THERE IS MORE a few years back the Dolphins took on the New York Giants in London, England. Crowder was not a big fan of the location of the game, and disclosed his displeasure with this brilliant statement.
“I couldn’t find London on a map if they didn’t have the names of the countries. I swear to God. I don’t know what nothing is. I know Italy looks like a boot. I learned that. I know London Fletcher. We did a football camp together. So I know him. That’s the closest thing I know to London. He’s black, so I’m sure he’s not from London. I’m sure that’s a coincidental name.”
Now I know why Rex Ryan went after Crowder with his famous “I’ve walked over tougher guys going to a fight than Channing Crowder” comments. I’ll do Rex one better, I can promise you I’ve stepped over smarter homeless people getting on the subway in New York City than Channing Crowder.
