  1. One last thing to add, before I leave you folks alone, another point for consideration.

     

    It takes guts to put yourself out there, face a life long stuttering problem head on by speaking in front of large audiences when so much effort is involved to just speak.  
     

    Takes guts, and considering the school he chose, in the city it’s in, he took up that challenge before he was even out of HS.

     

    Good luck folks, hope our guy is who you were looking for, on and off the field. ✌️

    Thanks. I still don't understand why a player vlogging would be a reason for concern. 

     

    It would be inaccurate to say that Pittman vlogging is the least of my worries, because it doesn't register as a worry in the slightest. 


    He managed to get good grades in college, did extensive volunteer work in the community along with all his other student/athlete obligations. 
     

    I agree with you, character is not a concern, what we don’t know is how successful he’ll be at the NFL level. I do believe he’ll work his tail off to be successful.  
     

    Kianna is the perfect gf/wife for an athlete, both are level headed young people.  They really do have a nice love story.

  3. Michael and Kianna are really good kids, but I can understand a few people’s concern.  Our players are encouraged to engage in social media in college, with support and guidance from our SID with suggestions on how to navigate the media and how to interact with fans.  Believe e, they were monitored and advised.
     

    By the time they leave, they’re very media savvy.  They have to be in a city like L.A., 

    it’s important for the players to engage with the fans, and become good citizens of their new communities and contribute off the field as well.

    He's likable, but he sure seems stoned out of his mind. Repeating himself every sentence, sometimes 3-4 times. That was very uncomfortable to watch - his eye movement alone was very bizarre. He looked like Stevie Wonder most of the interview. 

    I had a very good feeling about this guy until I saw this interview. Now I'm pretty concerned about his ability to mentally process the game as it unfolds before him.

    Perhaps it's just a speech/eye contact impediment. 

    Perhaps it's drugs.

    I guess we'll see! 


    Give the kid a chance.  Although it was an awkward interview, he did very well in face to face interviews and press conferences at USC.  The university does not shield them from the L.A. fishbowl media market. They’re groomed for it from their sophomore year on.  It says a lot about Mike, and overcoming a speech impediment, that he chose USC knowing the requirement is also to be active And participate in interviews and social media.  
     

    Don’t let his quiet demeanor off the field fool you, watch his tape.  Mike was a 5* recruit, on both sides of the ball.  We had another very shy and soft spoken player off the field, that was a terror on it....Troy Polamalu. 
     

    *Mike was also a good student, could have been accepted to USC on his own academic merit, without the lower athletic academic acceptance requirement.

  5. This is pretty much true.  I loved the way he handled his father’s comments, he was respectful of his father’s opinion, while being firm in his response that it was up to him to earn more playing time, and mentioning his injury.  It was a mans response, and showed maturity and the ease he had in smoothing the waters.  His dad was  simply being a good dad, but he did go off Twitter after that comment.

     

    Mike will never embarrass the franchise or Colts fans with inappropriate comments or behavior.  

  6. Greetings Colt fans!  Just dropped by to tell you that the majority of USC fans (we love Pitt), are happy the Colts drafted Mike.  Seems like a great fit, so happy for him.

     

    No one knows how successful an NFL career will turn out, but I do know, and can say, you chose a hell of a hard worker, high character young man who is very tough and physical.  Michael Pittman is no WR diva, he’s a team player, and very focused.  
     

    I hope he becomes the pro WR on the field, as he is off the field as a person and leader.  
     

    why does your color have to be blue?  Lol.
