Martellus Bennett had a sleepover that would make any Green Bay fan jealous.
The Packers tight end, who was acquired from the Patriots earlier this offseason, made the drive from his home in Chicago to St. Norbert College in Ashwaubenon, Wisc., for training camp late Tuesday night, only to discover the dorm he was supposed to stay in was locked.
Rather than sleeping outside following his tardy arrival, Bennett instead drove to Lambeau Field and slept on the floor in front his locker.
I love this city, but that is also one of the problems, Clifford said, per The Charlotte Observer. It’s not OK. We have to get past the point (where trying hard is enough). We’re good now. We’re not the Hornets of five years ago.
I love our fans, (but) everybody saying, ‘Great effort!’ that’s not OK. If we run back on defense and don’t turn the ball over, that’s a great win.
My point, and I think this is an important point, is we have to get past the point where there is such low expectations here that trying hard is a moral victory.
The Hornets (23-23) have made the playoffs twice in Clifford’s first three seasons as coach. In the two seasons before his arrival, the team formerly known as the Bobcats were 28-120.
This season, they’re tied for sixth in the East — but just 1 1/2 games ahead of ninth-place Milwaukee.
Clifford knows his team needs to get into a higher gear down Cheap Jerseys And Hats the stretch. He’s hoping his call to action, to everyone in town, prompts Cheap Jerseys Baseball players and fans to hit the accelerator.
