The Freak Show

Welcome to the freak show where the main attraction is Jevon Kearse. Since he first entered the NFL in 1999, the defensive end for Tennessee Titans has been putting titanic-sized fear into opposing offenses. Jevon has the arm span of an albatross, the strength of a bear and the speed of a cheetah. He's 6'4, 265 pounds and he can run the 40 yard dash in an amazing 4.43 seconds. This combination of animal qualities is what makes him one of the top defenders in the NFL and it's why he's nicknamed, the Freak.

Jevon's rise to "freak status" began in Fort Myers, Florida. He grew up in a poor, and sometimes violent, neighborhood. His father was shot to death eight months before Jevon was born. Jevon never knew his grandfather either - he was killed when Jevon was just 18 months old. His uncle and one of his cousins were both shot before Jevon had his fourth birthday.

That's pretty heavy stuff - but the violence around his family didn't stop Jevon from working hard at school and on the football field. He was a member of the National Honor Society and a star on the North Fort Myers High School football team. His brains and athletic ability earned him a scholarship to the University of Florida where he won a national title with the Gators in 1996. That's also where people first began calling Jevon, the Freak. What else could you call someone that big, that strong and that fast?

Jevon was picked by the Titans in the first round of the 1999 NFL draft. His size and quickness instantly made him a terror to NFL quarterbacks. In his first season, he led the AFC in sacks, was named Defensive Rookie of the Year and helped the Titans reach the 2000 Super Bowl. In his first two seasons, he has thrown more quarterbacks to the ground than any other player except his teammate, Kevin Carter. The Freak is now considered the best defensive end in the NFL and for any quarterback, there is nothing more freaky than knowing Jevon Kearse is lining up against you.

Kearse Words
"You control your own destiny. You can do what you set your mind to doing. I knew growing up with a single mom, I didn't want her to leave work to get me out of trouble. Peer pressure is always pulling and tugging on you. You have to take it on yourself to know right from wrong."
- Jevon Kearse

    A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

    Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
