During the 2005 football season, Keyshawn Johnson, who was then a wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys made a statement. He stated that he was a better receiver than Michael Irving because he played a more all-around game. What he meant was that he was involved on every play, blocking and preventing tackles, and not just being a pass catcher!! This caught the attention of many football fans. First of all Michael Irvin has 3 Super Bowl rings. Besides that, most people feel outright that Michael Irvin was a better receiver. But one point that Keyshawn had in his favor was that in his career he made a choice to do the intangible things that didn’t show up on any stat sheets or get noticed by the fans and the rest of the world. In a strange way, this is something that every man has to deal with in his own way.How will you feel at the end of your life? Click To Tweet
To be a “Keyshawn Johnson man, in a Michael Irvin world” what does that mean? It may mean that as a father he is blocking for his children’s education by helping them with their homework when he comes home at night even though he is tired after a long day in the office. Or he may be blocking for the longevity of his marriage by getting up in the middle of the night for his children so that his wife can get some sleep. Suppose you don’t make the Hall of Fame because you block instead of catching passes. How will you feel at the end of your life??
