Carl Nassib got heat for his Hard Knocks strong language

During the first episode of this year’s Hard Knocks, Browns defensive end Carl Nassib emerged as one of the more humorous and colorful members of the team, lecturing players regarding the benefits of compound interest and scolding them over the chunks of their lives wasted on Instagram.

Not everyone thought it was great.

“I’m a little embarassed about my swearing,” Nassib said Sunday, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “Didn’t know I swear that much. My grandma was upset with me.”

It remains to be seen whether Nassib censors himself in future episodes of the show, or whether he simply asks other family members to divert grandma to other programming.

It also remains to be seen whether any calls to Nassib from grandma (a twist on the Vontae Davis scene from 2012) make their way into the show.

  1. He should be embarrassed by his lack of knowledge about the rule of 72. “Just put it in the bank and will double in 7 years at 10%”. What bank are you getting 10% with no risk? Stick to football and let the professionals manage your money.

  2. Yeah… let’s write a negative story about a guy who tries to hammer “the benefits of compound interest” and enlightening the immature modern 20-something about wasting their time on Instagram.

    My grandma (who was a respected member of the church) would not have been bothered
    by the language.

    That’s exactly what I was thinking, sign me up for that bank. It was funny seeing Myles Garrett listening to him and probably thinking this is the idiot who cost me a touchdown and a win for not being able to line up onside.

  4. Obviously no BANK is getting you 10%. Thats not what he meant at all. The village idiot could find a good mutual fund and average 8-10% over time. THAT is what he was talking about.

  5. If you’re still offended by language from athletes or entertainers, then it is a you problem.

    The language that the snowflake cons need to conern themselves with is the rhetoric spewing from the orange tinted wannabe dictator.

    Now, snap to attention for your supreme dotard!!

    Yup… but… these mouthbreathers who lack all social abilities
    (other than misjudgment and omnipresent interpersonal negativity)
    don’t WANT to listen to what is said.

  7. If you’re an adult who feels that athletes and entertainers are role models, then it is a YOU problem.

    If you don’t, then what they say is irrelevant, unless you give it relevance.

    It’s a shame that our children can not look to the president for inspiration.

    When a grown man who paints himself orange is throwing a misspelled tamper tantrum on Twitter, it’s hard to be proud.

    Unless you’re a lemming or braying donkey.

    Still don’t get it ? Is the President Bombastic ? with out a doubt. Egotistical ? Definitely.
    Trade Wars !!! Why should other countries charge us tariffs and it is outrageous that the President wants to level the playing field and protect American Jobs ? Unemployment is at a 70 year low, 3.9%. Black, Hispanic and Women’s Employment are at all time highs. First time ever, we have more jobs then people looking for work. 4 Million more People have jobs then when the President took office and have moved off food stamps.The President is Helping YOU. not the politicians who line their pockets with taxpayer money, not the media being paid by George Soros ( read his wiki-leak emails because the media won’t report it)and not the one world government clan who think you are living to well. The GDP grew by 4.1 % last quarter. American people finally got a raise and more money in their pocket, not empty rhetoric about ” the new normal” and how the future economy can only grow at 1.3% etc.
    Oh, that’s right this is a football website, maybe we should stick to that.

    Oh, I get it.

    Maybe your president should stick to being president and not a petulant child.

    Your little rant, posted above, is a clear indication that you and the dotard in chief share the same temperment.

    Congratulations.

    Now, snap to attention!

  10. He’s another one of those “fake players” still on the roster from Sashi. Look for him to be cut.

  11. @across……

    Also, Drumph couldn’t care less about helping me, or you, for that matter.

    Once you widen your focus and stop siphoning InfoWars and FarceNews, maybe you’ll get it.

    Drumph supporters and The Flat Earth Society have alot in common.

    They believe what they believe and no amount of reason can chage their mind.

    Fine by me.

    It’s my understanding, this is what they teach at the former Drumph University.

    Debate 101

    Lesson #1: Facts are for suckers, reason is for weaklings, when all else fails, sling insults.

    You watch Hannity, Tucker, and the like…you know what I’m talking about.

  13. I also was perplexed by the idea of a bank giving 10% interest. That’s never happened – not even during the 70’s Carter years (for you young folks, interest rates were very, very high on everything). Also – if he’s talking about savings accounts, there’s a limit on how much federal deposit insurance will protect them. With the kind of money they’re talking about … that’s a factor.

    I’m thinking Ndamukong Suh is giving Rams players better advice. He gets his advice from Warren Buffet.

    I do like the idea that Nassib telling his teammates to invest their money and basically leave it alone. It’s crazy how many athletes and players don’t understand that they won’t be making huge money forever.

    I also like that Nassib talked to them about how much time they spend on Facebook. Compared to blathering away in comments on PFT (that pretty much go unread by everyone) Facebook rants are a time waster.
