View Full Version : Is Losman still immature?

I remember seeing a piece by ESPN on Losman before the draft which showed him to be an immature, cocky, big headed jerk. I've never gotten that out of my head when I think of this guy.
Have there been any reports of Ryan Leaf-esque behavior since he's been with the bills?

I heard alot of the same too, but by all accounts he is very humble. He spent the entire offseason in the film rooms, the weight room, and on the field sharpening his skills... so it seems to me as if he is not meeting the mold we both heard rumors about.
I for one hope he is somewhat cocky, because swagger boosts confidence in the huddle. Unfortunately, too much swag leads to seperation of players...
Immaturity on the field though, I am concerned about. He is essencially a rookie, and a rookie who can run with the ball. Hopefully he doesn't get to easily flustered in the pocket. We don't need a Micheal Vick, we want more of a Randall Cunningham.

He's sure of himself but he's not cocky or arrogant.
During the camps this season he always came to see the fans and always signed autographs unless he had someplace to be for the team.
He's got a bad rap so far with his personality but while he's sure of himself on the field he's not a primadonna off of it.
The team understands that they're going to have to watch over him and take care of the game while he learns and they're ok doing that, it's hard not to be humble when the entire world knows that you'll be learning on the job.
We have faith is Losman and so far he's not shown to be a jerk in the least, one of the most approachable nicest guys on the team actually.

My Dad told me a long time ago: " If you pull out your horn, you better be able to toot it" !

You know it's very possible that Ryan Leafs entire purpose in life was to serve as a warning to other young talented QB's. Everything I've read and heard tells me Losman paid attention to that warning.

After every practice this summer Losman would stay late to both sign autographs and spend more with with his receivers. He knows what he needs to get done and he does it.
