Thread: Vinny Cerrato

  1. #1

    Vinny Cerrato



    I love talk radio but I had to turn off Rob and Vinny today. What's his deal with Jacoby? Calling him selfish and a " me guy" for doing Dancing With Stars. I don't fault any player who maximizes his pockets. His window of opportunity is small. Jacoby is a role player with us at best and I never envisioned him taken over for Anquan. Vinny is wrong so many times but yet no one calls him out.

    It's the off-season. Jacoby can do whatever he wants to do.

    I like Vinny and Rob, the only show I listen to. Don't know why they dissed Jacoby other
    than it being the off season. He can do what he wants. It has nothing to do with the
    team. HIney won it all after they got their SB trophy.

    Nothing to talk about in the offseason I take it. I'm glad Jacoby is getting recognition though.

    DWTS can only be a plus for the Ravens brand among casual fans.

    I dont see anything wrong with what vinny said. I actually agree with him. All that time and energy could be better spent working on his football game. It is within his right being that it is the off season but show some dedication to your game. Maybe work on his hands so the ball doesnt hit his body everytime a ball comes his way. Possibly work on getting faster and stronger.

    He's participating in a high cardio, low impact, minimal injury risk workout in a competitive setting that simultaneously improves our team's image and recognition world wide as well as his own. And it's not like we know he isn't working on his hands in private. We do know he owns a Juggs machine that he bought last offseason. Do you think he just threw it out before going on DWTS?

    But I guess he could always play some pick up basketball with Sizzle instead.

    I also find it amusing that Lynn Swan is always heralded for taking up dancing in the offseason for its benefits to his fitness and body control, but Jacoby does it and people feel the need to complain.

    ^^^ This
    "A lot" is a two word expression denoting a great deal or greatly, as in "I like sunshine a lot." "Alot" is a lovable imaginary grammar monster. You can love a lot; you can love an alot; you can love alots a lot; but they are not the same thing.

    I agree with this 100%. I cannot stand any of the reality type shows like DWTS, but I have no issue with Jacoby doing this.

    There are a lot worse things a football player could do in the off season then dancing, like riding a motorcycle through downtown Pittsburgh.

    Re: Vinny Cerrato

    Jacoby is great and represents Baltimore the team and city well.

    Both 105.7 and Vinny Cerrato unlistenable. Finger nails on a chalkboard delivery with kindergarten off-topic discussions, not X's and O's. Living in NE I glob onto anything Baltimore sports but just can't handle 105.7.

    I get better football insight about the Ravens on WEEI when the Ravens play NE; how sad. Any alternatives, other than WBAL O's pregame, and WBAL sports line at night?

    Do you spend all your time away from your job working on your job? Using that logic, maybe Vinny Cerrato should spend more time when he isn't on the radio working on his craft because he clearly sucks at what he does.

    I heard the diatribe on the radio, and I think Cerrato just has a problem with Jacoby Jones, period, so he's going to attack anything he does. He called him immature for the way he jokes around and acts, so it wasn't just an issue with the dancing thing. Frankly, I think the whole thing sounded like a cultural divide - a grumpy old white man who can't stand the personality of a charismatic black man. Cerrato came across sounding like a complete loser, so it just reinforced what I think of him anyway.

    Also, Jacoby Jones has said that working out for dancing is more difficult and getting him into far greater shape than any conditioning he has ever done with a football team. There goes that "getting faster and stronger" notion. Ask Lynn Swann (as others have pointed out in this thread).

    Local sports radio everywhere is crap. SiriusXM NFL radio is on another level. It makes it very tough to go back to the local yokel guys.

    Re: Vinny Cerrato

    I have to come to Vinny's defense on this, even though I think it's great Jacoby is on DWTS. You have to understand his point of view. Coaches and GM's want their players working on football 24/7 even in the off season. Jacoby is going to miss some of the voluntary practices, according to Vinny. That is not good. While the conditioning Jacoby is getting from dancing is wonderful, he is not practicing with Flacco in the off season. He is not working on his craft. As far as being a me guy, Vinny just doesn't like the goofy faces and jestures on TV when the judges criticize his dancing. It's kind of childish, really, but that is his personality. But the positive thing about it, is that it gives the Baltimore Ravens franchise more national exposure and that is great.

    Come on man, we all know it's a cutthroat business. Jacoby could just as easily have spent every minute of his time training for the upcoming season, only to tear his ACL week 3 and see his career come to an end, because nobody would pick him up.

    Let the man make his money while he can.

    Re: Vinny Cerrato

    I heard a little bit of the back and forth between Vinny and Rob. Two small points. One, Vinny pointed out that Jacoby is only the second active NFL player to be on the show. FWIW. Implication being that active players know to keep focused on their profession -- along the lines of what Chaaampionship is arguing, if you buy it or not.

    Second, it seemed to me from listening to him that Vinny has a bigger problem with Jacoby's personality than the fact that he's on the show. He kind of paints Jacoby as a preening clown.

    I don't agree, but I know what he's reacting to. Jacoby is an odd dude with a weird sense of humor. I think it's funny. I can see how a straight laced guy sees it as foolish.

    Vinny cited other instances going back to the Super Bowl and the Kimmel appearance. He's the same guy who rips Brandon Lloyd everytime the guy's name is mentioned, claiming when they were in DC Lloyd was a me guy who wanted to be the center of attention. I think Vinny, by extension, seems to have a problem with with "diva" wide receivers who want to be the center of attention. There is some truth to that stereotype (our own Derrick Mason, Hines Ward, TO, Moss, on and on).

    I don't know Jacoby very well but he strikes me as more of a fun loving goof (ie, Terrell Suggs) than a prima donna.

    The key word is "Voluntary"! Suggs, Ngata, Yanda are not at the facility. Who is to say Jacoby isn't working on football training. My issue is Cerrato is wrong about sooooo many football related issues. Just last week he said the Ravens would need 6 million in cap space for the rookies. He couldn't have been more wrong. He stumbled and stammered all over his draft scouting reports. No idea how this guy ever was a GM
