Blah, blah blah, I’m the best. Blah, blah, blah, give me the ball. Blah, blah, blah, I’m the most selfish person to ever live.

In any case, head coach Jim Schwartz was asked during a press conference Wednesday his thoughts on the incident. Here’s what he had to say:
“There are good ways to go about getting that and not so good ways about trying to get that done. This is a pretty good example on a not-so-good way. It is what it is,” Schwartz said. “We obviously still have some ground to cover there.”
Ain’t that the truth.
Schwartz also talked about the responsibility that comes along with being an athlete or head coach on social media platforms like Twitter, and how you have to be able to deal with the negativity that might come along with it.
“You wear your uniform 24 hours a day and social media is a part of that now. You’re responsible for everything you say. It’s tough taking shots from people when you’re that way, but if you expose yourself to it, that’s what you have to be prepared for.”
It’s clear that Young still hasn’t learned his lesson — not from the incidents during the season and certainly not from the one that took place Tuesday. Nevertheless, I think Schwartz and Co. are hopeful he’ll clean up his act even a little bit. If for no other reason than to up his trade value heading into next season.
