Tom Jackson: Von Miller needs to check himself

Tom Jackson apparently didn't get the report that shows the millennial generation is spoiled, fragile, narcissistic, entitled, and pampered, but who isn't, am I right?

Here was his message on Sunday NFL Countdown today for Von Miller:

Von is a man.

Von Miller is not some kid going to school.

Von Miller is a man.

And with the money, with the position that he has, with the skill that he has that's given him this job comes a responsibility. And he better start understanding that.

We can talk about what people need to do. His dad is now staying with him, trying to watch him 24/7.

You have to take responsibility for what you do.

I got a speeding ticket on Tuesday. That ticket was sent in by mail on Wednesday morning so I will not risk the chance of being arrested somewhere in the state of Ohio.

You have responsibilities.

Now he has hurt the football team, himself, his money, the organization, the city, and the fans. What's left for him to not understand?

And I like Von Miller. This may do damage to our relationship. But he needs to understand his responsibility to the Denver Broncos and to himself and his family and everybody else that depends [on] and roots for him.

We are all capable of making mistakes. We are all human beings. I'm not going to be a hypocrite.

I made some mistakes when I played.

But the fact of the matter is...if you think about it, if you're Von, for the next 12 to 13 years, Von Miller can't do anything. He can do nothing. So he had better resolve himself to the way that he is going to be for the rest of his football career.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
